and he nails this 1 too. im impressed not only by the skill but the fact he's pulling it off on an X2. i remember riding my buddies old X2 back in the day and i could barely get up on that thing, they were way harder to ride than a stand up.
I think he could do it. The guy is that good, and more importantly, so confident. It seems I saw him either wakeboard or sky ski with very little instruction. Not talking anything from this dude though. That was cool!
I jumped the gun on a custom superjet last season. Just as addicting as wakeboarding or any other sport! I really enjoy the mechanical aspect, which is the fact they need constant maintenance. Check out www.theskiclinic.com. They make BOB, a custom hull with tons of build options. You can drop some real coin in a hurry!
Sweet, flatmate has an X2 body at home and a freshly rebuilt 650cc race motor to go in, might have to get some practice in this summer, can bunny hop the 400cc one he has already. Tows the wakeboard OK too.
Regarding Pastrana, based on watching Nitro Circus, it would seem that you give him a few tries on anything and he can do it. Whether its a pogo stick or a big wheel, dude can flip it. If had a couple more monster trucks he probably would have nailed that too. I think for him or anyone who might try this is nailing the timing on jumping your own chop.
