    Couldn’t agree more with the answer about all the negative comments. I’m all for constructive criticism but I don’t think people realize that they are just shooting down certain peoples creativity. It’s like brainstorming for a great idea, not all the ideas leading up to it are going to be great. It’s fun trying different stuff and when you eventually come across something great it’s even sweeter.

    +1 for Haze’s comment.

  3. Steve Says:

    how about ungrabbed single flips, thats what i do, are those cool?

  4. Justin H. Says:

    Steve, attitude is everything. A straight backroll with a goofy grin is better than most any grab out there in my opinion. I love watching strong riders do their thing, but good vibes is how you get in my crew.
