Yeah Leo, You can tell your arm took the brunt of that landing. Kudos for getting back up and pushing on.

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?

In the video it's a 156 I've been riding most of this season. You can safely drop a few CM's and go down to a 157 wide or mid-wide. Just remember that guys our size can get away with slightly stiffer park boards or use a softer "all mountain" board in the park, so we have some options.

Sam once they get Hawk Island up and running I expect you to be doing wild shit in the terrain parks, too

I was counting on Hawk Island to progress my park and get 20+ days this season. I know it's not too late but jeebus, 6-8 weeks have been lost.

sounds like they may open this week/weekend. If they're open Saturday I am going to try and get up there for it.

I missed the meeting last Wednesday so I'm totally out of the loop right now outside of what's being disclosed on their FB page.

yea i don't think its gunna be a record year for anyone. im banking on places staying open till mid April again this year but i think the resorts up north will even have a hard time with that.

Put it this way Sam... you're getting an earlier start in the park than most of us here. I just started getting into boxes last season which was my 6th.

I don't think Dave really concentrated on jibs either until a few seasons ago. You're in your second season and in all honesty, we might as well call it your first season since you barely rode last year. You're progressing at a very fast rate

I don't think anyone in MI has enough base to stay open in to April like Boyne did last winter.
