Breck’s 4th of July Bowl 7/26/09
26 Jul, 2009
July is winding down but in Colorado there is still plenty of snow for summer shredding and the rail garden is the best I’ve seen it at the top of Breckenridge’s Peak 10. Today was my 100th day on snow for this year, reaching my goal and will continue onto more days at Mt Hood in August.
I drove down and met at the usual friends place in Frisco before all of us piled into my truck for the drive up to Breckenridge. Today we had Lauren, Adrian, Scott, Max and myself in the fun shred day. When we arrived on top, it wasn’t long before more trucks pulled up of people we know. The rail garden has such a variety now, today was a 3 rail line that everyone was charging.
I spent the first part trying the frontside boardslides on the corrogated tube and felt better with it…even though I took one really good slam backwards. After that I worked on getting some shots of the better riders and will finish my rail mastering at Windell’s soon.
I trust Scott when he rides so I took out the fisheye and got in front of the rail to get the shot and then quickly move out of the way. I didn’t get hit and got a shot I liked.
There were plenty of riders to choose from, girls and guys out there trying to old and new tricks. Plenty of crashes and PBR to go around to make the pain less.
Grey on the flat down rail
My favorite shot of the day, he tried out Adrian’s horrorscope and this tail press is just insane
I didn’t catch his name but I love how you see the board flexing during his frontside boardslide
Switching it up
I met Grey last weekend and got some shots of him but I liked today’s shots better that I took.
Here’s his noseslide
Max went for airing off the tube and I caught this indy grab with the audience watching
Lauren noseslide on the flat rail
Here’s the video from today, just some fun rail sessions of friends. I’m still working on the recording part, but I like my new camera a lot. Especially since I have a cheap tripod that holds it up and I just hit record.
There is still plenty of snow for shredding but I’ll be heading out to Hood in August so it looks like this was my last ride day until I get back from Hood in mid-August.
