haha. have you seen summer of FIT? in the very end, like at the credits, dakota roche blows a tire. just airing a quarter. and if you've ever seen Ride BMX's flipside, then you've seen blackman do that 540 drop to bank. tire just exploded.

yea. right now i have a casette. it took me so long to learn to actually backpedal, and then you have to throw the little turn around pull at the end. my mind really doesnt work that way haha. plus, i really like the way ian schwartz is so smooth, and i really wanna be like him now. watch the sunday gone fishin web vid and youll know exactly what im talkin about.
