Haven't gotten much response on them, but let me know what you think if you would. Anything you'd like to see in a future edit?

I'm not as good as Dave, so I'll just show my noob crash. Can't really see how bad these ramps to the boxes were. They were pretty steep and rutted out. I tried to save my bad approach by doing a half-assed nose blunt. Doesn't look as bad through my POV. Friends said it looked horrible. Redeemed myself with an Indy off the next box and then crashed again from using the final rail's ramp as a little kicker.



By the way, I'm still feeling the pain from that crash. My right arm and hamstring area are messed. Yup, I rode in that pain all of Test Fest.

hey u gotta start somewhere dude. 50/50's are a good starting point. your vid quality looked really good. hey i just wondered where and how your cam was mounted? was it pointing downward or were u just looking down the whole time??? u have a contour right? do you think it should've been mounted more downstream? damn i need to get my hands on a cam one of these days!

Actually, it was mounted pretty normal. I have a GoPro 2 but I mount my cam closer to the front of my helmet. I do point it down lower than others. I still want to point it lower. The problem is, since it doesn't have and LCD, I have to wait until the upload to see the angle. I've been lowering it little by little. My goal is to get the nose of my board constantly in the shot.

The angle you see after I crash is because the camera got hit too. It's just how it ended up after the crash

Edit: I'm so much more comfortable jibbing trees. On boxes, the second you pressure an edge even slightly... lights out.

dave, still riding the machete. i love that board. haven't added anything to it yet (stickers etc.) and haven't taken anything off it either, cartels are still rockin'. it remains unchanged, and well taken care of. thanks again for my first "legit" board. by the way sick 180 on, have to let my ribs heal a bit before trying that!

built an 8ft jib box using pressure treated wood and true hdpe for the top sheet. it is 9-3/4" wide and about 1-1/2ft high. i will post some pics when i get a chance. i have 3 more pcs of 9-3/4" x 10 ft of hdpe so i plan on making at least one more 8-10 footer. one 8 footer is a good start but not long enough, as many people have stated. been practising at the local hill 30 seconds from home. dave, if you are ever in the neighbourhood, let me know (anyone else for that matter). free is good . . .

derk

Awesome yeah I really liked that board but it was a few cm's too long for me now that I'm riding more in the park. The bindings are solid too, so glad you're happy with them!

Take care of the ribs - I busted a few last february and that hurts!

Thanks for the info, and that's no problem. Just trying to get my survey out there for school, but I'll try other channels then.
