Making fresh tracks
- Nov 17, 2015
George Foreman won the WBA heavyweight boxing championship at 45. Just say'n.I used to send very big cliffs while living in Jackson from 98 to 02. When I moved to Flagstaff I tried a few cliff lines but every time I did I would scrape rocks just before the take off. Our wind and intense solar has a negative impact on snow around the rocks so I stopped. I used to hit big park jumps too but as I’ve gotten older I’m really scared to get hurt. I’m 45 now and my body doesn’t bounce back like it used to, injuries and pain really linger and that’s no fun. I’ve also had around 12 concussions so I’m legit scared to hit my head again. My inner voice warns me about that.
Small airs that naturally work mid line or mid turn or off a roller or cornice are still within my comfort zone tho.
This is me jumping Smart Bastard back in 01/02. I smacked down pretty hard on this day, it was not nearly as soft as I hoped it would be. It felt like six inches on a fairly firm base.
I'm with you on the importance of avoiding concussions though.
