I don't know if you'd be able to get enough speed to really need a foam pit. Like, you're not going to be sailing over a 30+ foot jump on powderpak in Drew's backyard... You can probably set up a smallish kicker to practice on but you wouldn't need a foam pit for that.

1)I did not say anything about it being in a backyard

2)You don't need a 30'+ jump to have fun with a foam pit. Could be a kicker with bigger kick.

3)Could look for a way to solve the speed issue. Banshee bungee?

For sure!! Always thinking about it. One of the best things about PARX is that the options are endless! It would be great to build some permanent parks with foam pits. Trailering a foam pit around put a whole new dimension to PARX. I like the idea and will make it happen!!! Baby steps my friend.

So I might be able to swing a couple of hours Sunday. What's your opinion about using a cambered board on powderpak?

Can you edge on powderpak?

Was nice to finally meet you Jesse.

Sorry I didn't get to sesh with you though. Didn't want to push my luck.

By the way guys, I need to start gathering information on who's attending the 12/17 meet at Crystal and what days you plan on staying.

I'm heading up there Friday night on the 16th. Possibly even going up there in the morning for a short session

So the target date is 12/17-12/18. Staying Sunday night and driving back Monday morning is an option too. I think most of us want to leave on Sunday though after a short session. Let me know because my friend has a hookup for the cabins and needs the plans so he can call the dude up for pricing.

So I just found out Boyne is doing a 6 for the price of 1 lift ticket deal on the 16th. Haha.

nice to meet ya too dude. only took 2 years lol! i'll be down for a trip up north 12/16-17. i'd prolly stay fri and sat night, leave on sunday. don't really matter to me where we go. i usually look at two things when choosing locations: best pricing and who has the best terrain setup. boyne seems to have a little better setup than crystal but it will still be early in the season so they'll prolly be pretty equal. crystal's usually got the better deal. i think the condos at crystal are a cheaper/better setup than the overly priced rooms at boyne. but thats just my opinion. u guys can decide, just lemme kno.
