Nice pics Nick...looks like you got booted on those kickers. Did you land any of those jumps that you posted pics of?

Booted is right it was freakin' CRAZY. But I didn't land any off that one but I landed one of another that I didn't post pics of. It was a more mellow kicker and I didn't get nearly as much air.

incredibly hard to get used to. I had no clue what to do on my firstattempt starting the rope jerked my shoulder which still hurts but after I finally got used to everything and how to turn on the corners, I didn't wanna leave. I am going tomorrow and am gonna get some more pictures so look out for that.

Also, in the picture where I am upside down. Yea it looks like a tantrum but it was completely by accident. Don't tell anyone though

The cable is a blast. Once you get used to the big kicker, you can boost big.

Cool pics

get low and firm. the "kick" is like nothing you've felt on the wake so you're getting tossed.

Firm up your legs and bend your knees to take more of the momentum upward with the kicker.
Also ,edge out to the kicker, then flatten off. will give ya little more control on the kicker.
