Favorite spot of the trip?
Tight curved wallride spot which is right after the left photo above.
How often do you do turndowns or loopbacks? The office guys were stoked on it.
Hahah! Well, it’s been forever since I did a turndown/lookback, so I had to do one!! haha! I love that trick and happy I can still do it. LOL
You do crankslides switch and regular? How long have you been doing that? How long did it take to learn the switch?
Yes, I do switch crankslides ! Well, one day I just started grinding on the other side… I think it took me a few days to figure them out…. Practice practice people!
How many flat tires did you get on the trip?
Haha! Way too many. I think at one point of the trip everyone had a flat at the same time. Haha!
What was up with that really slippery low curved wallride you did? How many times did you slide out just going at it?
It was a marble curved wall, so I had to get all low and sideways, but it worked after sliding into it a few time. Haha! I got lucky on some. I think one of them felt like I was sliding to home base, but instead it was a wall!
How did the idea of 180ing through the swing at the beginning of the video come about?
I’ve seen swings like that before and always wanted to 180 through one, so I was like yup I’m doing this one! So, I started to throw myself through it and she worked! Stoked how it ended up being the opener for our ATL trip!
Who was the best cook on the trip?
I have no clue!
Did you get sprayed by the boobie trapped dish spayer in the kitchen?
Haha! Yes, yes, yes it was too funny!!!!
What was your go to breakfast?
Every morning I had eggs and bananas toast and a lot of other stuff that was floating around!
Ever see the movie Vacation? Who was the Chevy Chase on the trip?
Never seen or heard of that movie but Are trip was like a family vacation! Haha
