Yesterday me and a friend went to a spot that I saw earlier in the summer. It wasn’t the best setup, but I figured I could do it anyway. The run-up kind of mellowed out so there was no pop, so we made a makeshift launch out of a piece of ply and some pieces of wood.
Anyway, I fired it out right off the bat, but didn’t get enough speed as you can see in the video below.
There was also a balcony that stopped me from getting the best line possible. To get the right line I would have liked to be able to go as close to the wall as possible so I’d go more out into the bank when going over the rail. This way I went more straight so even if I had pulled it, the clip might not have been all that great anyway.
It was pretty gnarly and I’m happy I got away with some bruises and a sore neck and shoulder. Way better than if I had smashed my face on the stone framing of the flower bed at the top of the bank… too close for comfort.
