Wherever the plane lands
I am kinda shocked that his amazing feat that he pulled off last weekend at the X-Games has not be discussed in here. Or has it?

Has everyone seen it?

That is awesome. How crazy do you have to be to perfect something like that?

I heard it was the first time he ever tried it. He told his mom before the stunt how much he loved her and appreciated her support.

HE'S AWESOME. Love that guy, he's so good at what he does, and seemingly doesn't have much of an ego.

Yeah, he also made a point to tell his Mom that he was "just having fun." I love the X-Games. That double was sick, though.
He rocked the rally, too!

It was great. It is really too bad that the coverage of the X-Games kinda sucks now. Back in the old days (lol), they used to show a whole lot more in the way of interviews and lead up stuff. Plus they had more less mainstream (probably everyone has ridden a bike or a skateboard--that is what I mean by mainstream) sports like skysurfing and streetluge.

They really need to do away with all (or at least 75%) of the vert part of the ramps, the tricks are far more spectular when the riders are above the deck.

street luge was cool. I agree about the coverage, I think Sal Masekala is forced. This was better when it was less big, just like the WSOP.

Probably because he was afraid he would be killed or something and wanted to say goodbye just in case!! It was so cool to watch though!! I LOVE IT!!
