Great post! Looks like an incredible place. Three loops is pretty scary.

Nice. Maybe when you boof I am blinded by the reflection of the sun coming off your closely shorn head and it is better than I think...?

ha! that was pretty entertaining. i remember not wanting to be roped on the waterfall jump. i've never done a throw 'n go, including that same one, with ropes attached to me. i knew better, & even said so .. but at least one of you dudes was pretty adamant about it. dang, that was husky. for what it's worth, i'd definitely do the annual spring fling with you dudes again. but you should know i wrecked my shoulder .. again .. this time while shredding the skatepark. & i don't think your boof stroke looked all that weak, given the circumstances...
