    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! SF sesh OMG

    Just wanted to post up a few from this weekend. Meet up with some from up north for a weekend FR sesh Keep in mind the camera flattens things out but this hit is big. Called the Jury gap, visit the spot once and you will know why.

    Here is Dom on his new Transition Blindside! Can you tell he likes it?

    Here is one of Neal showing some style!


    Here a video of Neal hitting that hit from an other angle

    Camera didn't flatten it all that much. That thing looks scary

    Nice. That Jury drop looks a lot like the first jump on Cougar at Sol Vista.

    Look like a ton of fun. Maybe I can have you show me around if I can make it down there this year!

    That would be dope! Let me know and we will make sure you get the GRAND tour

    Those drops are sick! The jury drop looks freaking scary.

    supra, on that bottom drop, it is a nice drop...but 18 feet? C'mon. Maybe 10.

    There is no way that is 10 feet but the pic is of my first attempt. Oh its big alright, guess you need to just see it in person to understand. That was my first attempt so if you go slow to med. speed you can land 14-16 feet down. If you hit it at med to fast speed it can be a 17-20 foot drop maybe more I guess if you really send it. My second attempt was bigger I had more speed nearly bottom front and rear

    You come this way I will take you and after you drop you can tell if you still think it is 10. I will try to find you some video of the drop rear quick.

    It all depends on how fast you hit it. I guess is was his second time that he hit it faster and landed down fairly far (Rich has the video). When my son Ben hit it his first time he landed so low that he sprained his ankle. Here's a better picture of the drop zone and Josh Bender hitting it a couple of years ago:

    The pic of Bender definately gives a better perspective. I could easily see you launching way too far if going too fast.
