Any pics of HUGE drops?

I was looking around online for some pics of big drops but couldn't find anything good. Does anyone have some pics of stuff Bender has done? Or anyone else who does that crazy crap. Please post those pics.

As for a huge pic, a year ago Specialized had an awesome pic of Matt Hunter(?) on its website. It should be on my computer somewhere. I think someone here has it as their avatar....

Not big per se. But one of the harder drops on the shore considering it is to an insignifigant tranny.

Fun stuff. Has its own level of adrenaline. I haven't rode a skinny this year though, really disapointed in myself.

I've seen people do it. Only in the videos my friend has (he's got Quick & Dirty and Kranked 5) But the skinny stuff looks very tough. And lots of it is elevated like 5-10 ft. from the looks of it. So that stuffs not for me.

Some of it is. For the most part 5 ft is about the limit for an average trail. I have a trail here that gets to 4 or 5 in one section. I gotta get some pics. But like I said I just haven't done any this year...

Try and find a series called NSX (1 to 5) it is a good price. 5 hours of movies, but shows how the shore evolved. Very cool series.

There isn't much to do here in my little town. So I really wanna have a road trip with some of my friends next summer and go to some nice mountains. WITH shuttles. I hate hiking up with 40lbs. for 30 minutes for a 3 minute ride. Almost not worth it.
