I don't get why people are so bothered by who did what & where first...who cares, just ride.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Who said I was bothered dude? Maybe I just saw this and felt like it was something worth posting the few times I'm on Vital.
Maybe I think most the threads that happen here are boring and I'm trying to liven up Vital with a new maybe different thread.
Maybe.

I always think it's neat when a pro rides uncommon spots that you've ridden, especially your own town

Garrett Reeves did this rail hop (probably first) back in 2007/08 (also 180ed it & wallrode over it later on)

and at least two of my friends (and more, these are just the pics I took) have done it too, so they technically spotjacked him

Rail hop to wallride on that spot sounds awesome but looks impossible

My bad...

It just came across like that with you saying you'd like to think you hit it first. Misunderstood what you were saying that's all.

Its just I know a lot of guys that ride and won't do a trick @ a spot or whatever because its ABD and I just don't get that kind of thinking.

no worries.

I think the actual clip he got a video of for himself is in one of his scraps edit, I'll find it. it's either the wallride or the 180

he did it with the other rail still there too which is nuts pulled it first try too

?feature=player_detailpage


and the 180, took like 3 tries cause he messed up the rollout

?feature=player_detailpage

just the main one, he HAD to have been extremely close to clipping the first rail with his body or his bike before taking off though

The first spot in this is local to me and everyone rides it.

In the 2010 dan's winter tour, the first park in the edit is my local park. I didn't even notice it until a few weeks ago when I watched it for the first time since a few years back.

I'd only really consider it "spotjacked" if a rider stole the spot from you - not came across it on their own.

|

It is neat to be able to say "I've ridden that" but to me (regardless of intent) saying "Spot Jacked" makes it look like you are mad about it.

Honestly I would love to see more pros come to my area and shred. It would be a fresh perspective to see how they shred the spots.

I concur

I don't get how a spot can be stolen in the first place, its not like they belong to anyone.

I've had a similar thing happen to me once. There's this spot in Long Beach that not many people know about, and I've never seen a clip filmed on it. It's such a rad looking spot and I had always itched to get a clip on it (if anything, just to show the spot/pop it's clip cherry)

Anyways, the spot is a major bust, you can only ride it for 10 minutes at a time before getting kicked out. Needless to say, even though I really wanted to film a clip on the spot, motivation was low due to the likelihood of getting kicked out too quick.

Fast forward a month and one of my all-time favorite riders films an awesome clip on the spot, popping it's "clip cherry".... Now I don't really care as much about filming anything there, it's kind of "his spot' now if you know what I mean. I could be a little bummed that I didn't get to it first, but in the end it's more of an honor to have one of favorite pros see things the way that I do.

I've also had one of my favorite pros film a clip that was something I had thought about doing on the EXACT SAME SPOT! I live in SoCal where you can't really sleep on getting a clip, or someone else might get it. Again, in this case I wasn't really mad, if anything I felt honored that one of my favorite riders did something that I would do, makes me feel like we see things in the same way.

I live in a place no pros ride. I have ridden the same skateparks and bowls Chase Hawk, the Odyssey team a while back, Chris Doyle, Brian Yeagle, and Derek Nelson have ridden. haha (in videos atleast)

Actually if I saw spots riding a spot I frequently ride at, I'd be kinda mad.. Mad I wasn't there while they were riding. Good times for sure haha.
