ouch - might i suggest pulling up and landing it both wheels first? Entertaining though no doubt
Yes you'll be suprised at how much just unweighting the front'll get you... This type of endo still gets me on new terrain, it's decieving from up top how steep it can get!:D

I know I should have tried to manual off right before the end, but it's steep even before that and I was already picking up speed. I don't know if I can unweight the front while skidding down a steep slippery rock. :confused:

Yes! Yes you can, and you should! Dude, that was hilarious! But I know you can clean that. You know where the dip is at the bottom by now... pull back and pedal through next time, you'll make it.

I agree Bro... You can hit that! Right before you come to that ridge before the dip let of the back brake, weight back, give a little lift to the front and roll it. Try not to use you back brakes, If it gets dicey then use then front.... trust your front brake, it can handle alot on a section like that especially if your weight is back.

I did the same thing 3 weeks ago. Walked away with a couple of scrathes and a bruised ego. hahaha Thanks for showing your priceless moments.
