by the time me and boys had got up and were ready to hit the trails it was about 10:30...

we first started off going straight to our newest and definatly our best DH trail...its very dense bush on the side of the mountain that runs into and along side a valley...its covered in thousands of old vocanic rocks just sticking up out of no where and is one of the nicest places to just sit on a huge rock and look out and just take every thing all in...its a wicked place...anyway coz its so steep i couldnt get more than one pic for each stunt but the boys wernt willing to try some our stuff out coz they hadnt done it for a while so most things didnt get done...*****s...:rolleyes:

anyways...theres is this huge flat rock thats about 20-30m long and is on a real steep gradient that i got a nice shot of EV riding down towards...the second pic id of AL standing on a new section of north shore were bulding...its going to about 20m long and suspended about 6'ft from the ground between trees...we have all the supports up and one bridge and that what ALs standing on...its back up at the start of the trail...where the third pic was taken...it was really hard to get the pic to look good seems as this huck i built out of hollowed out tree logs and dirt to fill em and stuff...i havnt built a landing for it so the guys werent to inclined to huck to huge off it and land down the hill as a landing...the last pic of this set is EV standing at the bottem of the really rocky sectiopn where to huge flat rock ends (you cant see it) and i was standing on a rock about 15'ft above him...as you can see the land out there has so much potential its crazy...and the trail were running throught it is getting there we just need more help from ppl coz it takes so long to build stuff...

anyways the next pics are all of the guys jumping ALs huge doubles in the middle of his front paddick...its got about a 14-16'ft gap and there about 6'ft tall but they need to be bigger...coz were finding it hard to pull the more technical tricks such as no handers...

anyways...lemmie know what u think of the pics...there shouls ba a couple of batches of em depending on how long i could be stuffed sitting here uploading them... :rolleyes:

but i think im getting better at making the backdrop look more intense and the silowette blacker...lemmie know it you think so...
