Place does look like fun.

Are those keys hanging from a belt? That could hurt.

I see you also use the tongue sticking out technique to adjust balance ratios (last picture). I also realize that if you took the keys off it would throw the balance way off and other adjustments would have to be made.

Yep, it's a bit steep so I carried momentum into it. Make it right up no problems!

It could be done with momentum, but one could also get their wheel on top, then lurch if they don't do trials.

The easiest way would be a side-hop though.

No. The easiest way is to ride right up and over it.
