It's terrible. That's why. It's hard enough timing the picture right to get who ever is riding in the air, let alone get the trick at it's most clickedness...That's not a word.

My friend and i spent about $160 in total. Plus screws(my friend had a bunch so we didn't buy any...) and a few free 2x4's that my other friend had laying around his house.

I'm fairly positive that it's the helmet, the stunna shades, and the bowleg, actually.

Oh, that might get someone in trouble .

Better to have one's parents fork out the cash, whenever possible. Remind them that 'this gets me out of the house and out of your hair'.

You guys put some use on that box in just one day!

The shades are my stupid transistions glasses. I wear a helmet because i don't want to die or get concussions and because it makes mother happy.

As for the bowleg...they aren't that far apart.
