Trick: Hippie Jump

Pull: Yoke Winch

Matt Hooker has really been pushing the sport lately.  He’s always doing new stuff and he’s become that guy that you send first to hit sketchy ledges and big gaps. I’ve been shooting with Matt a lot lately and he always has some crazy spot or crazy trick up his sleeve.  On this day I met him at this little canal where he had found a tree branch that would be perfect to try a hippie jump.  It was some really gross water but of course Matt charged it.  It was really windy that day so I had to try to hold my light stand to keep it from falling and I ended up with a lot of out of focus shots.  Fortunately Matt kept doing it and we ended up with a good one. Thanks to his roommate for driving the winch.
