i've seen it on the web before but its been a while

Sweet repost, dude. Check one page back.


As far as I'm concerned those trails can be re-posted for the duration of this thread. They look magical.

Public jumps. Random photog guy came out to shoot some stuff/play with his camera set up.

Been doing a bit of digging today. Me and my mates found some old un-used trails that need re-shaping and smoothing out. Pretty good to have a set halfway done that we can just improve. One of the lines is a berm > roller > tabletop > step down > slight hip > berm > step up. Gonna be fun. The transitions are really tight though so all need mellowing out a bit especially for my mates on 26".

That's not true. We have seriously STEEP and DEEP trails that 26'rs ride. Unless your jumps are only 3-4 feet tall. but what's the point of that? make 'em tall/steep/deep

Yeah they're small jumps, my mates are new to riding so we can't really make anything big at the minute.

edit - turns out the mud here is clay and it should be awesome for jumps. I've never built trails before so I have no idea if I'm doing it right but the first re-worked/slightly mellowed takeoff is looking nice so far.. the logs etc in the middle were already there so don't hate me for that haha. Makes it rollable for my mates til they can jump properly anyway.



here's a view from the landing of the hip that needs sorting out (left). Bit in the middle is a small kicker/step down leading you into the hip, just before that is the landing to the first jump. Lots of work to do but it should be fun when its all finished and set.
