    Trailbuilding stokage

    With all the talk about trailbuilding on here recently, here's a vid I'm putting together as I'm building a new trail. I've just completed the first section, 3 fairly big hits in a nice flowy line. I'l post updates to the vid as I progress the building...(the line now needs to head into the woods, haven't finished scoping out the next bits yet...):

    Nice work. Love those drops. Would love some terrain like that to build on. Look forward to the updates.

    Busy as he'll rebuilding my trail as Hurricane Irene wrecked havoc on it. Took 2 years to build, and one day to wipe it out with downed trees. As soon as I saw the devastation, I said to myself "when life gives to lemons, make lemon aid". So i'm using the downed trees as jumps. Taking a while working alone for the most part but totally worth the effort.

    Don't worry SMT, out here in Botswana we still have a civilized court system.

    I'm gonna have to give Adam Ant a miss though....you know, given that I live about 20hrs away from LA...in an airplane...at the best of times...

    Yeah I'm with SMT on this... a public forum is not the place to admit to building DH trails.
    Though it looks fun, it seems like it may be taking the path of the fall line in some places.
    So it might look good in a year or 2 with some TCL, but it could very well lead to erosion with just 1 heavy rain, and a small rain rut can cause a chain reaction...

    The IBMA trail crew spends most of their time repairing trails due to uneducated trail builders.
    Check the schedule here. Find a class in your area and go for it, the classes are free. I was surprised how much they cater to the DH/FR side of things when I went.

    Those aren't fall lines, those are transitions.

    On the more serious note, yes, I'll admit to having built these trails strictly with max fun in mind, building between natural features, fall line or no fall line. We don't get heavy traffic, and they are holding up well, 2 yrs in.

    No IMBA here though.

    Nice Job man! Enjoy

    I like how everyone assumes everything built is in the usa

    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    Update - the line can now be ridden top to bottom. Still want to cut in a new section in the middle, there's a bit of a dead part there, but at least it's now all connected. Here's the same video as before, with the remaining bits added on. These were basically all first hits on each element, we'll ride and shoot the trail properly some day...:

    Right next to SMT's Mom's place. He actually built half the trail. His real name is Bob.



    Just kidding. It's in Israel.

    Pretty cool place. Good work thanks for the old school sound track I've not heard Adam & ants since high school. And let me tell U that was long long time ago.

    That's right, no worries at all, I even made sure I gave all the kids a day off when the Fairtrade and Human Rights inspectors came to visit...

    Nice work!
    The chesty shots don't do it justice.
    That's a good looking trail.
    Looks like it would ride well with a bit more speed on it-the hits look spaced well for speed.
    Props on the Sugar Ray cover tune.

    You're right, some sections need to be ridden with a bit more speed than what I did there, it's time to put down the shovels and learn how to ride it properly now...

    Sugar Ray FTW!!!
