Nice kitchen.


I was always wondering about these pole mounts.... are these things incredibly light? I just can't imagine holding a pole the entire time you are riding... seems as if you'd get tired or bored with it.

We should design a belt/harness that you wear around your waist and the pole locks into it... you'd still have to hold the pole in place, but at least the majority of the weight would be held by the belt.

The only issue with that design would be when you fall. When it's in your hands, you can avoid destroying the camera better. Plus it's less likely for you to impale yourself

2" of freshies this morning

PK was meh.

Triple jump line was open actually it might've been a quad jump line with one big jump and a few mid-sized maybe 10 footers.

The Pinery park sucked goat ass. They had one tiny kicker at the top which people were using as a drop in to hit the only feature, the 2' wide butter box, and one tiny kicker at the bottom which didn't have enough of a landing and they didn't turn on the rope-tow until halfway through the day.

The bar was not open until 5pm but fortunately I had three beers in my Jeep.

THe snow was good and should be good throughout the early part of the evening unless temps get low & freeze.

It's probably too late but anyone heading out tonight looking to do park (unless you just want to go hit jumps) I'd recommend Holly instead. If you're heading out this weekend, call PK and ask if they've added any new features. If they don't add more features it's definitely not worth the $30.

I'm kinda dissapointed although I did take the Machete out today such a fun board to ride.

The second kicker in Snowbird was so steep

I couldn't believe people were hitting it. I saw so many kids overshoot.

Im really sore today. The best part of the whole hill was ollieing off the mounds on the right side of the quarter mile.
