Steepness (and a cute babe)



What's a technical downhill?
And how steep is steep?

Well, the pictures say everything.


Control.



Confidence.



Peer pressure.



Faith.



Trust.

My broken radius and ulnar says: "no no".
My brain says: "Yeah man, can do"
My Bro says: "Yeah man, can do"

Thank God I've learnt not to listen to my brain & Bro.

joe,

You can do it!
The thing is, I forgot to tell you to brake hard before the water bar. You hit the water bar at 30+ mph, dude! No wonder you flew 15 feet in the air.
