Video: Eric Porter Turns His Pumptrack Into a Jump Track

May 14, 2020
by Daniel Sapp  




Making the most out of his time at home with his kids, Eric has been helping them groom and tune-up the pumptrack, making it a little more jumpable as they progress. Just like moving to the next grade in school, the boys have been progressing from small rollers onward since they could coast.

bigquotesI figured since everyone is home schooling their kids now, we should include jump building and pumptrack maintenance as part of the lesson plan!Eric Porter

 Awesome dad - I am jealous. Glad he's letting the kiddos progress slowly and safely, if these kids were in Whistler they'd be sending all the big jumps....kinda worried where those Whistler groms are going to be 10 years from now....

 I got the land, I got the tools, but my kids are grown and apparently they don't know how to make more ...

I need to rent some little kids, riding with adults is boring Wink

 Digging with your kids is the best feeling. Giving a kid a jump is amazing, teaching a kid to build a jump is life changing!
