That first vid (OP) does look pretty bumpy. You see him get a bit of air off a bump as he exits the chute. Imagine if he had've tried bombing it

I def think the vid does it no justice. From the way he's riding it looks pretty steep... and yeah, bumps. Sure if it was fresh it'd be different.

Had a situation the other day where my buddy was dropping a spot, and I thought it'd be good idea too. I got to the drop and realised the runout looked sketchy and I didn't like the idea of a tomahawk right then so I had to ride it out rather than get some air. Sometimes you end up in those situations and can't be elegant. More survival tactics than anything. Should I have stuck to terrain I know I can ride well? No. Gotta push yourself!

Anyway...
