Local San Diego rippers Connor Bloum, Cody Johnson, and Andre Pepin session The Pine jumps, throwing down their scrubs and whips. There are multiple options for lines at Pine Valley, but for this episode we wanted to focus on the scrub jump/bump in the middle of the main line.

Support the whip by sending Dark Timbers a photo or video of your whip/scrub. At the end of the month we will announce the top 5 best whips along with the prizes that are attached to each place.

Send us a pic/video of your whip or scrub to be in the running for FREE product and gear, courtesy of darktimbers.com

 you could tell that they all naturally whipped to the right because they scrubbed the prejump really well and most of the time they whipped that prejump better then the left handed hip.. but they still were able to whip to the unnatural side wayy better then I can..

 Nice filming but dont make a support the whip video if you yourself cant whip..... i know i cant whip thats why I dont put videos on the interweb. Just cus you have a sam hill kit does not mean you can ride. it does apparently mean you can perform sick one footers though!

 The bottom of Noble Canyon, my old "home trails." Too bad those jumps didn't exist yet when I used to ride out there. One of the best ride spots in San Diego County though, without question. And guys, their whips are sick. Sicker than any of ours, hence we are watching them...
