Yeah it's a very gaeilge (Irish language) looking word! I didn't even know if it WAS a word and some googling came up with a possibility of two put together. What is it then? And by gaelic do you mean Irish or Scottish gaelic?

Scottish Gaelic... It's been a while, but I think it means strong at arms... But then again, that was like 15 years ago...

If it's Irish, it's probably pronounced "John Smith". Irish pronunciation just doesn't track the written word at all.

Nah, you're just reading it wrong... only joshing, know what you mean. It doesn't track the English pronunciation of those letters/combinations. Then, most other languages don't, being different languages!

(I'm Irish, as in from Ireland not American/Canadian/Timbucktoo-an Irish, so I could pronounce and read it just fine - just didn't know what the hell it meant! )

Red bull came to Cypress last weekend & built a couple jumps for the Red Bull Jib Kings event.

These are monsters, with the biggest one having a 65 foot Table top.

I don't think I take a 10 foot table if Cypress built it. They're fuckin' retarded.

I posted this on their facebook page about a month ago.

They didn't even reply

Red Bull built proper jumps just like I scribbled, thanks Red Bull.

Eat a dick Cypress.

The jump in the pic is comparable to jump #4 in my scribble.

It has barely any lip & the transition is really long.

I don't think it would even feel like you were going off a jump.

Minus the ground dropping out from under you
