    Big Drop

    I just did a new ~11 foot drop at Legend Park yesterday. Its a sweet drop because you just float in the air for a long time. I got two pictures of me doing it, but it makes the drop look small so I posted another picture of my friend doing it (taken right before he lands.) You can see where I land by the tire tracks.

    Well, it is actually very fun.
    Here are two more pictures:
    1) Doing a ~9 foot drop
    2) My friend doing a gap over my other friend!

    The pics don't make it look very big but it could be 11 ft if you got the right speed. It does look really smooth and great for someone to learn big drops on cuz there's not a lot that can go wrong (relatively speaking). I love drops like that cuz they feel so good as opposed to a drop, like the pic of me below, which is only 8 ft but is more risky, dangerous and painful IMO.

    Try doing a drop like that (I did it off of a roof) on to a plywood tranny about a foot wide. Super smooth if you hit it right, but a good way to get a concussion if you miss. And yes, it gave me a good concussion.

    My tape measure must be defective or broken, my 11ft drops look twice as big as urs. Its a nice drop nonethe less . I know camers suck at getting good shots as far as height and angle and blah,blah,blah... Now i gotta go buy a new tape measue...
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    If misery was money i'd be the richest man on the planet.

    FS fopr drops simply becuase they have more give and more room for error in a sense. A hard tail will feel the impact a little more....
    im all about midget drops
