From the recent storm that hit the Northeast. Coleberr is in the green/yellow jacket. Lots of backflip attempts, mainly for fun, but not too many were close to being landed. We needed to build the jump up but it was getting dark so we were just going with it. Any constructive criticism on the editing/filming is appreciated. I think I'm going to make a longer feature for the rest of vacation's footage. Just grabbed a copy of After Effects so I'm going to try my hands at it.

The kid with the purple misfits jacket had his binding pretty close together and was aware of it. It really does cramp a lot of ability. Colter's were the norm for width. Thanks for noticing, though.

yea ive just noticed that alot of my friends who are really good riders make their bindings as wide as their board allows. It helps with spinning and balance on rails

tight pants wide stance...lower center of gravity, more control over sidecut...

You widen your bindings to a comfortable width, not just cause your friends that are good have ridiculously wide poop stance.

Wider stances are typically used in the park. I have a pretty wide stance but nowhere near as wide as my board will let me make them, that would be fucking ridiculous and extremely uncomfortable.

yea my friends also ride extraordinarily small boards so their stance isnt as wide as one would think

You guys might not have had a nice enough lip, but you gotta tuck more regardless. Bend your knees and launch off the lip; a lot of the backflips the guys went straight leg all the way until you wiped.

Looks fun though.

Colter hit up Cannon with his brother two days ago.

We're probably going to be doing some Pat's Peak night seshes if you want to join. It's a small mountain in NH so its cheaper and we mainly just mess around on the trails they have there and do park laps which is really fun, I'll let you know when we are going.

Here's a little handrail action from today.
