i started working on some jumps today. the first is about a 15 foot gap and the landing is on the backside of this burm.




the landing is really steep, its hard to tell by the picture though


heres a little table top, its about 15 feet long but i'm going to build it up higher tomorrow.


tomorrow i'm also going to start building a step up. the jump will be about 5 feet high with a 10 foot gap up to the top of about a 10 foot hill.

action pics to come soon. it takes a while to dig when none of your friends ride bikes and you're the only one digging.

your first jump reminds me of somthing my mates got, you can bust really high and the landing still feels real nice and smooth, you should build the kicker nice and steep and then build a new set of doubles after the lander like we did...

but anyways nice stuff...

yea thats what i was thinking of doing. theres this big drainage pipe thats like 5 feet high right after the landing and then a road goes over the pipe, it was right behind me where i took the 3rd picture. anyways i'm thinking about building a nice hip over the pipe and then a set of doubles for when you come off the hip. that'll probably have to wait for a week or 2 though.

You guys!!!??

It looks like he's gone and dug some big azz holes in the middle of a trail!?

I could be wrong, but if thats a trail thats used by hikers or anyone else other than you, then they might be pisssed about those giant holes, right?

No offense.. It just kinda looks bad. You should dig a ditch or try scraping away the surface dirt.

no hikers, this is just an empty neighborhood lot. those holes are going to be fixed. i guess i should get right on that before a hiker trips over it and drops their camera or granola bar in the dirt.
