One of my goals for 2016 was participating in this event.
I had worked on a few aspects of skate park riding, mainly dropping in, manuals, bar twists in the air and coasting backwards. I had enough confidence to give the pump jam a shot and was able to complete runs throughout the day without either embarrassing myself or wrecking. Two giant wins in my book.
Very few riders actually spoke to me, but the ones who did, albeit briefly, were encouraging and positive.
Also got to watch Scotty Cramer in action. Pretty sick.
Here’s a couple videos from the day that other riders posted.
