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.
