The other day I had the chance to ride with Rob Jacques and Keith Lidberg at my local shred-spot in Winter Park. Usually Rob is busy pulling campers, mowing lawns, playing x-box, or doing whatever else it is they do at the projects, but Keith and I managed to pry him away from work for the day. My roommate Paul came as well, so I decided I could give him my camera to take some action shots…bad Idea. Apparently Paul couldn’t time the camera’s delay too well, so I have posted some sweet shots of Rob lading some insane tricks. Why don't we run more photo's of people taking off and landing? Aren't the take off and landing just as important as the tricks themselves?

 

We also put on a show for the Winter Park boat tours which runs about three times a day with three boatloads of people. It always amazes me that they can manage to fill those boats all day every day. I guess we do have sweet canals though (secret ledges hit by cassette team for years).

 

After some riding we headed back home, and on the way Keith pulled the old “seat heater” trick, you know, the one where you put the passengers seat heater on high when they are looking the other way. Rob thought he was either having heat flashes or maybe his black shirt was working double time to collect UV rays. This was the first time I had ever heard of this trick, and for the rest of the day I was dying laughing about it. Later that day I tried to pull it on my girlfriend and actually flipped the switch. Then all of the sudden I started to feel really really bad and couldn’t bring myself to go through with it. She looked so nice all dressed up, so I had to try and discretely flip the switch back before she noticed. These are the inner battles I must deal with…
