Me and my friend have an on going fight over drops and which ones are best, and coolest. my side is that a drop around 10-15 with a gap to a good landing (fairly steep) is better that a drop around 5 ft taller strait down to hardly any landing, (which is his side). If you want to see how his 15 to almost flat went check out team hardcore. IT doest show it but he bent the race face north shore dhs that were on it. What are your favorite kinds of drops?

well youy posted in the recombent area I think if you went to the right area you may have better luck. a drop on a bent would not be a fun thing.
