trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

I love vert walls. There is this skate park in London called bay 66, it has a pretty big one- and in the middle of it it has a quarter that sticks out, if you got skizzles you can carve round it. I don't have the skizzles unfortunately but it looks fun hahaha

Woodward west has a vert wall like 20 feet high and a total of maybe 40 feet long with a quarter in it. Carvin over the 6 foot quarter is pretty sick too. Idk why haha

I am a bigger fan of just big ass quarters.Vert walls (a smaller quarter with vert on it) scare the fuck out of me.

Nahh, they actually taught me the motions of airing. Just haul ass at it, level yourself out in the air, and dive back down.

I can air pretty decent like a couple feet but maybe It was just that the vert wall at Woodward is a good 20 feet tall. Hahah idk

This. My local park just built one and it's so weird. I don't know whether to pull up, turn on it, or just lift my front wheel.

you just try to stay as close to the wall as possible. like i think of it as trying to hit my bar end on the wall.

you can also right as you get to the peak let the bike float up and into you and parallel the bike to the wall and then float back into the wall when you go down. I really enjoy doing very walls that way...
