Default Almost a disastrous double back flip

I was @ Cypress last weekend & me & some dude were tryiin' to huck some doubles into the airbag.

Even before either of us had tried one, I had this little clip running through my head.

In my head, I was well aware of what could happen.

Here is buddy trying one, watch how close his head comes to the lip of the jump!!!
His helmet might have even grazed the lip, it's hard to tell? It definitely isn't done up tight enough.

That's all I need to bust one or two out as well.
If someone else can do one, I can't see why the fuck I shouldn't be able to do it as well.

After seeing how close he came to catastrophe, it was definitely something I was taking into consideration.

As long as I'm aware of where I'm @ on the jump, I think I can get a little more pre-load in there?

The quality is garbage sorry I don't have the knowledge to split the super long clips, so I had to re-record them playing on my pc.
