so familiar, i dont even get upset about it anymore. i just keep digging. ill be digging lots anyway, and keeping that mentality makes sure im at the trails enough to catch the poachers red-handed, or when they wanna ride the mistakes im fixing. then i school 'em, and it usually turns them in the right direction
and when it doesnt work, i toss them something in their own interests.
for example we had some kids wrecking all the lines at our old old jumps, using a cable spool as a tabletop in the middle of a good gap. it lead to every jump being toned down, etc.
took that spool and tossed it in the middle of that groups flagship jump (which i also built). wasn't too long til they respected the work others do out there, as a collective (and not selfish) effort. they finally focused on riding better instead of tweaking the jumps to their convenience
Dang dude, that is one long ess roller! it looks awesome, but is it going to be more of a floater than roaler, seems like you couldn't really pick up over that thing, just pump in, float, and pump out. Not that anyone talks about 'floaters' in trails... not in a good light anyway.
I'm just wondering how you expect it to ride/feel because it looks super-fun.
today was trails. that berm we rebuilt is SO FREAKING FAST. The right hip out of it sends you to the moon. and the last step up is SIIIICK. Hope everyone had as much fun as we did today. Summer is going to rule!
last jump in the line. stacking the landing.... Two lines run into this jump. Both are downhill lines, one has a massive step up, the other has a 28 foot booter. The speed will vary so this last jump will have a short/inside line and a larger outside gap. Left hand hip....
I've been soloing on a lander for the past week or so. We have had a bunch of rain which is good and bad. Taller/bigger stuff rules but takes forever to stack and capping. Might try to fire it up this weekend for a Father's Day present - need to figure out what the final shape of the lip will need to be.
