reshaping the shark fin.
Really pumped on this pic. Mike Lawless took it.
found this piece of gold on prettyshady.com. pure sex!
and here are 2 random shots of my trails. Middenberm trails in the Netherlands.
for more pics and stuf check us out on facebook. www.facebook.com/Middenberm
dang that looks huuuuuuuge
Not the best shot but shows a different angle.... this is the jump that leads to the step up...
pnj - always looking good. You guys are banging out a ton of work.
SDG - that place has some sick looking lines. Can't believe how squared off everything is.
Sunsets - Clint Reynolds is trails. That kid is good. Just saw he's torching at S&M which is cool
We got a new set running this past weekend. Posted a pic that doesn't do it any justice - it's about 6' tall but dug in between the trees. Need to finish the lander and put up a big ol' right hand 180 after it.
this month has been full of rain. I think we've had 3 days of sun...
rebuilt/surfaced a landing this week.
i need to find a spot with elevation variation like that. make digging alot easier
All the elevation does for us is allow bigger jumps. which means we need to make jumps/lips/landings bigger and wider. which is more work....
public jumps. Kagen mid 3x. pic by a random photo guy named Jeff who has been coming out to play w/ his camera equipment...
but theyre bigger jumps, they can never be too big
Already posted this in the tabletop thread, but what the heck... gotta keep these epic threads bumped.
Tabletops and hammocks is trails...
Local spot - after a sweep but before the rains snotted it up again
Sick spot, Don! Still jealous of east coast trails...
Integrated pump track....
do you hit that lip coming out of the berm? or is the berm part of the pump track?
No, the berm is part of the pump track. Here is a different angle that shows the setup jump into the hip. I wish I had a good picture of the beginning. You start on the side of a hill, go down about a 30 foot long berm/roll in, straight into a long step-up landing in a berm. Out of that berm, you hit a jump going into the landing shown in the very left of this picture. It is super fun, the whole thing feels like a roller coaster... haha
Cru - thanks - yeah, I don't mind living on the east coast Although the summer storms have been wrecking havic - lots of tuning to be able to ride stuff (but thank God for tarps!) Loving that integrated pump track - real slick how you used that one lander as a berm. Can you spine it?
Axis - looking good!
A few more shots of Koala. The place is super fun right now...
We had a great Jam/BBQ at Koala over the weekend.
trails is riding in the mountains while smelling the ocean breeze...
You look like you're eating the ocean breeze.
don't diss my smog flakes. they're grrrrrrrreat....
Trails is not having to leave your compound and deal with other peoples BS. . .
hell yea! ^
x2 - although I was getting winded just watching that. Ironman laps you were taking there Ted!
Don, I was hurtin from diggin/riding. my legs were so sore I couldn't even jump the last step up.
The line is almost done being roughed in, still need a lot of clean up work and drainage dialed in but next season it should get epic.
RIP lynnwood trails.
Seven years of work just got cancelled by the man.
When the Lynnwood trails were started seven years ago, there was a farmer with a cow in his yard across the street. Today there are condo's where the cow once stood.
65 jumps, endless lines of roasting goodness came to an end today. Plows come in this week. We met with the city parks dept. to see if there was anything we could do to save them/make them legal. Basically all we did was give them some names (ours) so they know who to give fines to, if and when the time comes.
Anyone that builds trails knows that pictures/videos can't do justice to a spot. Those that came by and shared some beers, scoops, sessions, bbq'd and just shared a laugh know how great this place was. Thanks to anyone who lent a hand!
I know this video was posted earlier but it deserves a repost.
Sounds like that beer was well worth it!
I like how your place is setup now - it was great and fun as hell when I was at your jam a few years ago but I think you have everything you need and everything is linked together. You had a pretty big setup going and I can only imagine the amount of work it was to keep it running smooth.
Once you do the finish work next season I think you'll be very happy with it all.
Damn. Super bummer. That place was legendary.
pnj - real sorry to hear about Lynnwood Trails. That place looked dialed - with the buffed clay and lush foliage.
Just hope you guys don't get any tickets to add insult to injury. Hope you all find a new spot or an existing place to ride/dig.
Officially done.... Too many jumps to flatten in one day but EVERY lip/landing/berm has been picked...
