Nice rolls, nice landings.  Nothing too big for you.  Front flips still look like your on a diving board...but thats some style.  I enjoyed the video.  How are you liking those shoes?

MLW, I actually love the shoes. Turns out the Ariakes are all they are cracked up to be (in my opinion, of course). And yeah, I love the way front flips feel, especially when I make them look like a springboard flip.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Nice video.  I was watching some of it and thinking how I'd like to hit up some of those spots and try some of that.  I thought the exact opposite while watching that diving video.  I wouldn't even jump off of that thing.

me either.
I can't even dive off of the 20 foot ramp at the swimming pool in my hometown.
I'm kinda afraid of heights.

Ah its not that hard. all you have to do is fall and not miss the water! hahah. Those were fun time, but sadly (hah) I only have parkour to keep me entertained.

Thanks for the comments!

Robinson High school.  Nice.  I still think that's the best spot to train at in Virginia that I've seen, period.

And I was going tos ay something about your legs looking funny when you land, but then I figured out it's just cause you're lanky.  Dude, you got REALY long legs.

Well, I had to go back and watch it again.... there wasnt a pool in the vid? what was the time of the clip that you are talking about?
And I just got a brand new sony high def camera that records to a memory card instead of tape for christmas. Forget the model of it, but it rocks.

And Robinson is good, but probably not the best spot to train in VA. Ever been to great falls? mmmmm love it!

No, never been to Great Falls (for training, anyhow), but I do imagine that it's really good.  We used to go hiking and climbing out there a lot.  But you run into snakes sometimes when you're climbing those rock faces.

LOL, I remember Flipster telling me that he kicked a snake off the cliffside at great falls during on of those great falls jams.

skipper, you were there weren't you?
