    two drops we made

    These are two drops we have down the road from my house. The first one is about 9 feet, used to be a little bit smaller but now you overshoot the landing so thast gotta be changed. I have a video of that drop but its on my friends comp so ile post it soon. and the second is further down that hill and about 13ft. The landing/runout's almost done so action shots coming soon and both drops are gunna be connected by the same trail.

    FYI usually drops are measured by the height, not how far you go out, but maybe i am just jealous i don't have good drops with trannies near my house.

    i know, i didnt get measuring tape or anything but i measured it like this. standing from where you land stragiht up to where is level with the take off- the first on was about a foot over my arm stuck straight up and the second is a little more than double overhead.
