Weekly useless thread

Got back from Woodward around 4:30 yesterday. It was fun. No pro's this time, just a bunch of little kids on skateboards that weren't too bad for 10 year olds. There were like 5 bikers too but nobody too amazing aha.

Highlights/facts and information.
-I still can't clear the Lot 8 box. It's big, and you gotta air the 10ish foot quarter in front of it kinda high)
-I think my friends and i got NWA banned from being played in Lot 8.
-Some of the skateboarder kids moms were attractive.
-We saw at least 8 'Adult Video stores' on the way up and back. Creepy.
-The Susquehannah river is green and nasty
-I can do really sloppy turndowns now.
-The floor in Lot 8 is slick, if you make a sharp turn you'll eat **** and your friends will laugh.
-My friend downside whipped the doorway gap in Lot 8. (Quarter to the steep bank with the wall tap thing at the top)
-Arby's is a really good fast food joint.
-The trails look better then people say they are. But were too wet to ride.
-Dropping in on the resi-vert ramp in Cloud 9 is stupid because it's hella slick.
-No foot cans are a bad idea when your cranks spin like crazy 'cause your driver is shot
-Tire grabs to tables are fun, but make sure you get your hand back on.
-Backflips are gay.
-Tailwhips are overdone.
-Don't try and flap your hands like a bird during no handers beacause you get comfortable doing them.
-Getting stuck behind an Amish buggy sucks.
-The 2 box jumps to resi box are hella fun and remind me of trails.

Got a few pictures but none of me, my camera died before it was my turn to be pictured haha.

My buddy on the 10 foot vert ramp in Lot 8:


Grizz airs don't work well:


Other friend at the top of the vert wall after the Lot 8 box. He's all the way up i just can't take pictures:


Flip-to-oh-****-****-this:


I belive this was after a bar hump at height into the foam:

Haha it's true. And even if i was lying, you all have seen riding pictures of me.

It wasn't worth driving 20 minutes to State College to get batteries. And for some reason the Amish people didn't have any...


I'll see if i can get some pictures of my crappy turndowns and other stuff this week once we fix up the trails some more.

Your mom is not always going to be able to stop you. You won't always be living under her roof. Hopefully...

True. Later on in life... but by then, I plan on being a professional baseball player and I won't be allowed to ride anymore. Haha.

If you are refering to the Dave Mirra games, then no, not at all.

It's alot better and it's changed a bit since the game was made. In the game all the outdoor ramps are grey because they used to be metal but like 5 years ago they got everything skatelited.

Plus the game doesn't have the resi and foam pits. And it's just terrible.
