fly or die. VERT IS!

My brother P made this cool vid to document our two hours on legit vert at woodward Denver. Watch as I get schooled by the big ramp. We had SO much fun. Vert is addictive. Right now I can just reach the coping on the 13 foot monster but I have plans to build a behemoth of my own in the back yard *evil laugh*. You can see from the vid that I was stoked and a little giddy. Vert can do that to you!
GREAT JOB on the vid P. I dig your edit decisions. How did you know I was in the mood for a little Type-O... wait that's Sisters of Mercy, or no... who is it? Sounds just like S.O.M. to me, crazy.

UPDATE: O.K. I got the strait scoop now.. The song is obviously a cover of Sisters of Mercy's Lucretia, My Reflection performed by Project 86. Project 86 has done quite well on the remake I might add. I have met Project 86 before but that is a totally different story. A quick you tube search unearthed many versions of Lucretia, My Reflection, including a rather disappointing offering from Wes Borland's band "Black Light Burns". I found this classic Live sisters of mercy performance complete with keyboard drums and a black glove wearing bass player. I LOVE THE 80's! There is not a good youtube vid of projects remake. Oh well I guess I will have to buy it on itunes.

WOW!! Looks like you had a BLAST!! Now... just trim a few branches off the tree in your backyard and elevate the top of your ramp to about the height of the crest of your house roof and soon - YOU can launch into outer space. Who needs a rocket booster when you have 4 wheels and a deck?

Nice job!!!
:-)

ol bean, sounds like a great idea! I wonder when my H.O.A. will start complaining? hmmmm. I guess I will just have to try it and see! ;)

This video is missing snappy commentary about the goofy kids just hangin' out in the flat-bottom, messin' up your sesh...

Nice! Can totally feel the vibe and stoke from the drop in. GNAR. Though, I'm more about that spine ramp! Glad you survived the session guys.

Kvon said...

FOR SURE! :) Ya, that spine ramp was way fun as well. It's a 4', it was wide and slick! Fun for fast, long 50/50's. And tail taps over the spine. My friend had a spine ramp in high school (circa 1989). It was 5'+. I used to ollie over it with no pads (dumb kid). My brother dared me to do a late nose grab over the 4' at woodward and I did it without thinking. Then I was like "what am I doing, I'm not 17 anymore!" HA! Old= more mental blocks!

My mission now is to get everyone I know stoked on vert! VERT YES!

You'll have no luck getting me psyched for vert. I bounced my face on the flat on an 11' drop-in fail. I LOVE to watch it, and I'll carve the hell out of a deep bowl, but I know my old man limitations. Skidzilla calls it a "heightened sense of mortality." Cretins also know it as "Adult Onset Vagina."

Oh, and nice job cross pollinatin' the interweb at EPM.

WOW! Nice video Kvon...I'm stoked just watching :D

Kvon said...

Hey Jackie! Thanks for checking out the vid!:) There is plenty stoke to go around!!! HAVE SOME! lol!

By the way, what's up with Jeff? Does he know his blog is restricting comments to team members? He hasn't posted in a while, hope all is well!

sarahgrace said...

How about "Adult Onset Castration"? ;-)

Jackie said...

I saw that too...I just thought maybe I wasn't on his team anymore :(

Ima send him e-mail.
