Me on the log drop at Hopton

Image Description
This really is a special drop and the hardest I did all day including the infamous 'Cliff Drop'. It would be awesome to boost it really high but then you'd never make the corner straight after which is close to ninety degrees and over shooting it is not an option! ph34r.gif

This picture turned out better than I thought it would. the low position I took to take the picture actually gives some sense of hight to that drop

Nice shot. For me this was the scariest part of the day - the landing was well sketchy and into a tight corner. I think I over-analyzed it and half psyched myself out. Still made the high line though biggrin.gif

I didn't analyze it too much I could see that way madness lay! I actually hit it three times and apart from all the other problems that dodgy landing and the fact you have to hit it blind mean that anyone who rides it low or high has above average kahunas. laugh.gif

Ooooh,good photo,good line choice.Next time try the lower line for a more pant crappin' experience.....like me! I nearly overshot the berm,certain death as you know.Its the run in to the high line that got me flustered,but after my experience its a line that makes the best sense for the berm after.

True the run up isn't the greatest, as of all drops its the run out that puts me off and this one certainly did that.
