If we get a good amount of snow I am interested in trying some urban stuff. I've got a huge list of spots that I've scoped out all summer long and I've got some ideas about how to bring it all together and maybe make a good short film in the 10-15 minute range.
yea i hear you, i like the 1' boxes cuz they're nice to practice sum tech on. im hoping that the rails will get easier once the 1' boxes become 2nd nature. thatd be sikk to do sum urban once a week if the snows there. im game. 3's are in ur future dude!

I found a pretty rad spot, just scoped it out again this weekend to take a closer look. it's a vacant office building on Stephenson Highway in Troy. Setup is basically the loading dock area which has the following:

- a three-segment flat rail which is nice and low to approach
- approximately 30ft down concrete ledge, very slight decline maybe 15 degrees
- approximately 10ft down concrete ledge, again a very slight decline
- concrete wall maybe 6ft high and 20ft long that could be used as a wall-ride or something to jib/grind

Check the attachments for pictures...

3's are in my past man I have video evidence to prove it IDK why but it's been a mental hurdle that I'm scared to try them for some reason the last season or two...

You definitely don't need a big kicker for 3s.

I meant to say "shouln't" lol.

Remember, big kicker for me is a small kicker for you

I'm definitely upping my jumps this year though.

dave nice pics dude. looks like sum good stuff for sure. frikken bungee cords are expensive but we may need one if we're gunna plan on doing sum urban. maybe we could go halv-sies.

also guys, everyone has fear for trying new stuff. we all do! use your friends and the forum for your fear-bonding and you'll get the confidence.

I know a guy in Waterford area who has a banshee, but I'm thinking about getting one too just so we're not always dependent on one person being able to get out & ride.
