road fools 14

i was just watching it, and i noticed i wasn't in the video. i'm pissed right now.i was with them when they were filming at this metal ledge. i did an icepick grind down the whole thing to barspin and kickflip, and i did a feeble to 180 to a backwards smith. damn. they went to all the wack spots anyway. they went to all the spots that are sessioned every day by tourist riders. they ain't up on my personal spots yet.

i'm too cheap to buy a camera. i'm trying to find a good spot to get a good trick so they might be able to throw it in the new animal video at the last second

i wish i was good enough to even be worth watching. i tried my first handrail like 2 or 3 weeks ago. i screwed up and missed with my back peg and ended up grinding it with my front peg and a pedal.

anything could be worth watching. as long as you get it smooth. a smooth 180 looks better than a sloppy 360

for rails, jump and nosedive. if your front peg catches the rail first, the back would always follow. look for a little 5 stair rail with a small kink to learn on.

i hit a new rail trick today, 50-50 down a rail and i hopped up to railride for like 2 feet. I ate concrete for like a half hour trying it.i wanna get a manual on it.

i'm also trying hangover tooths to manuals, but i keep getting flats. trust me, rails are the most fun thing about street riding. you will love to ride so much when you start hitting rails, but you will hate riding when you try 180 barspins.

im still cant barspin and im gettin close to 180s but i went a long period w/o a bike, got it back, and now i had surgery and cant ride for a while. and i got the perfect rail for learning, its a handi cap walk way and like 30-40ft long so theres plenty of room and its a handrail and then theres a rail lower that sticks out a bit, so u can hit either or.

surgery sucks man, it took me a week of sweat and blood to learn everything again. handicap rails aren't gonna help you learn, because they aren't steep at all. i know so many people that only grinded flat rails, and they were about to **** their pants when they pulled up to a real rail

some people might put plywood over the stairs the first time they would try it, and then take it away. not me though, my first real rail had a 10 foot drop on the other side, puddles from a sewage pipe in front of it, and i had to make two sharp turns before hitting it while avoiding skateboarders. can you guess which rail that was?

Not the ENTIRE DVD, maybe a 30 clip. Or at least a screen shot or 2.
