yeh man gotta agree, it f*cking not hard


Obviously everyone in this thread knows how to use their hands. What the OP was looking for were the original, creative, or lesser known ways to carry a spade. Obviously people hadn't seen the Dakine bag so everyone learned something there.

Threads don't all have to be retardedly serious or riddled with technical questions.

It's more like. One day you're riding to your jumps carrying your spade and you start thinking. How else does everyone do this? Maybe in the UK they do some crazy shit. You never know.

yeah but if you youv'e got to ride
on trails that are rough as its not that easy,i like the idea of putting the spade
in a sling and carrying it across your back,fold up army shovels are ok if the ground is soft,otherwise they bend

hook the handle through the loop on the top of your bag so the head of the spade is near your head then strap it to your bag to hold it tight just be careful not to catch your head on itJoker

Shovel across the back, blade down. If you're gonna be out for a while you may want to invest in a shoulder pad. I did 10 miles with it once and my shoulder was getting a bit sore by the end.
