Here is a little vid from some NorCal riders. It's got some craaazy shyte and some fun stuff too. Pretty good for an amateur vid. This is what happens when skaters turn mtb'ers. From what I here they have only been riding for 1 1/2 year. Best to right click and save. About 69MB.

ZZZZZ

So Mael, you thinking of moving? Or you just giving up riding 'cause you can't jump? So why do you have to wait until next year? Don't you still have a couple of months left that the park will still be open?

I was thinking of moving. But things seem to be falling into place. More money, more secure job which is helping. 1.5 months of full time park and another monthish after that of weekends

Well finally got to watch and DAYUM...nice riding. Its amazing how big balls count for more in freeriding than anything. And the skinnies...were skinny. Too many vids from the states have boardwalks instead of the real thing. I would be willing to be a couple of them actually came to the shore to ride the real thing. Great amateur vid WOW

Actually yes. They are FROM NorCal but they shot the vid all over. N.S., Utah, CA. and a few other spots.

Thats a special subsidized housing thing locals (1 year in town) get. Generally it is 500,000$ which is still cheaper than cali

That's very cool stuff!! That's the kind of riding I used to do on the yz250 (motocross)... looks fun on a bike, too.

But... I made the mistake of letting my wife watch the video and she's copping an attitude now about "safety" and stuff.... awwwww whatever! "I don't do that stuff, honey".
