    Oh, so you mean the landing is 50 ft long and not the jump? That makes more sense. :rofl: Still sounds like an impressive landing.

    cru - place is looking sweet. Is it better out there to have the pits to hold the moisture? Out here in the east those things would be filled with water most of the time.

    Thanks. We mostly do it because we can. It seriously only rains during about one month (February) out of the year out here. This year we had more rain than normal and the pits were filled with water/mud during most of Jan and Feb. We could dig drainage... but I figure if it's wet enough to hold water, we should be digging anyway. Digging down makes it easier to get the flow right, easier to make step ups, and easier to make big jumps... it's waaaay easier to make a 10 foot tall landing that's 6 feet out of the ground and 4 feet down than it is to build it 10 feet above ground level. So, anyway, it's definitely not a method that could work everywhere, but it works for us! :thumb:

    I wouldn't say it's 50 ft long...more like 20 feet long, 15 feet from top of the ravine to the bottom. The anti-gravity berm rails hard though!

    Nah it'd definitely right around 20 feet or so. maybe just a little bit longer but not much.

    That stuff is EPICALLY huge. A lock and chain is how we finally stopped people riding our stuff when we weren't out there.
