Forum 2010 season/ Things don't add up!

Sometimes things just don’t add up. We have been working on this jump for a few days and the whole time we were just laughing saying this thing dose no add up. When you build a 120-foot gap it has to be perfect. We had the jump built last week and ready to go. We wanted to wait for a storm to pass so we could hit it with fresh snow. When we returned the run in had filled in with snow it looked like no work had been done on it. After looking at the jump we could tell some thing was wrong. The jump had slid down the hill and was leaning side ways. I have never seen anything like this. It took us ten hrs to straighten every thing out. All this work for was done for something that might not work.

John Jackson testing out the new run in for the jump as the sun was setting.
John wondering what is possible to do over the massive gap. We saw the sun rise and set while we worked on this project. What a long day!
Here we are the next day get ready for the gap jump.What we do is nothing like the Ex Games were you have people to wax your board. This is a look at what real snowboarding is like.
The true spirit of snowboarding is in the backcountry. Most people only see snowboarding on TV by watching contest like the Ex Games . If you don't know the way they portray this sport is as fake as any other realty show. This is it no glam we are out on the front lines pushing things as far as humanely possible.
Jake Welch waiting to see what the day will bring.
On one of John attempts at this gap he took a pretty had fall. This photo shows how high the consequences are for doing some thing like this. This is what I mean when it say things don't add up!
This is a look at the entire gap you can see how far he had to jump to make it. To go this far and end up on your head is just a crazy thought. You don't get snowboarder of the year by not taking chances.The jump ended up working out John got a few tricks on it. You will be able to see them when his interview comes out in snowboarder mag next year. These are the kinds of jumps that John is known for. He has incredible determination every day we go out he pushes snowboarding as far as possible. This is not a made for TV event this is the real deal. This is about love sometimes it hearts but when it works out there is no better felling.

It's the X-games, not the "Ex games"... right?

I do agree with you though. John Jackson is a bad ass and I'll never be as cool as him.

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have poses to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this some interesting questions!

This is what I have been looking in numerous internet sites as well as We last of all found this these. Incredible piece of writing. I'm sure which means floored. Can certainly not imagine this kind of matter may be possible by it... I think there is a fantastic know-how in particular even though deals having these kinds of themes.
