    new crew of hucksters

    Ok, now I don't do huge drops, but to me the guys on these things are taking it to a different level...

    Most I've done is about a 6ft, and that was with suspension, there's no suspension on these guys rides. Just thought I'd share what I found in my bordom at work

    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    If they would stick a windsurfing sail on these boards they could really get speed & air.

    You do realize they are on a dh mountain...I doubt you could get much more speed. These things were designed for snowboarders to train all summer

    they have suspension.

    the same suspension that bmx kids use, their legs.

    that's like 24 inches of travel!

    We had these boards back in the mid-80's with phematic (sp?) tires that we used to practiced our windsurfing with in the winter. No moutains around! We also used long skateboard with sails in stadium parking lot. I learned alot of trick sail moves this way because the board always stay on a plane.

    Me too! We used some oversized boards with 10" wheels and skateboard trucks with an extra long axle welded on.

    Empty parking lots were a blast! If there was any type of wind, we'd rig the 4.1 m2 sail and would have a hoot of a time flicking duck jibes around!

    Those things were a blast!
