Default You know those moments in actions sport where you think "I could die here".

Had one of those tonight. The US Airbag tour came here. After watching about 6 people go and all of them strait lining it I figured I should do the same. After going off the 14ft tall ramp, it was about a 1/4 of the way over the 50ft bag that I had that thought. Ended up landing about 1 board length short of the end. I forgot to take into account a few things. At 185lbs I'm a good bit larger then most boarders, I know how to ride an edge to go fast, and I maintain my board to be fast.

The rest of the night I had tons of fun hitting the bag. Started getting spin technique dialed in and did some hucker flippy spinny things. If it comes to your area make plans to try it.
