 i wonder how bad that hurt....no doubt he landed it, but you know that hurt

 Final Answer is 1. yes it is 100% real I only moved a light stand out of the bottom right corner which is evident with my poor photoshop clone stamp skills in this edit.... final edit is clean and crisp....

 Awesome shot, amazing skills, worthy of P.O.D...I bow to your courage. Back in the day I used to think I was a big shot, but after seeing what guys are doing today, I was just curb hopping by comparison. Great camera work. Keep em coming.
  • + 3
 Hi All I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the History of this drop...who built it, when it was built? what films it has been in and how many and who has hit it !!
  • + 6
 Digger built it for NSX9, Super T hit it first, then Vanderham, then I'm not sure if Brad Walton or myself hit it next, and by NSX 9 everyone had seen it, and many people had hit it by the end of its second year.

Oh yeah before it was the Toonie Drop Geoff Gulevich had just the smaller version built "Loonie Drop" as it's now called (but with a far smaller and techier tranny so it was actually a legit stunt).
  • + 8
 Oh yeah I didn't drop enough names so here's some more. Gully's original drop was featured for a long time in bike. It was a nice green pic with Gully dropping off the rock with no tranny in the shot and he was tweaking the bar towards the camera (to his left).

Ken Maude, North Shore riding legend, now owner of Lynn Valley Bikes, and I were hanging out and chatting about stuff when he noticed the pic in Bike and told me that Todd (Digger) had just finished building this ridiculous version of the same drop. I talked to digger about it, went and saw the drop before Super-T ever hit it, but had to digest it for almost a year before I hit it.

I actually took Kevin Landry there one time to show him where it was so he could hit it and film it, but when we got there Landry wasn't feeling it that day. I actually was and ended up hitting it. I went back a week later and hit it for Digger's cameras two times. My first jump with Digger wasn't so smooth due to poor foot placement and it's the one where you hear the loud bottom out in the overhead shot in NSX 9. My second jump for Digger (third overall) was great - it was the slo-mo static shot in NSX 9.

Man I'm exhausted now from lifting up all these names to drop them on you guys...
  • + 3
 Thanks for the hard work of giving us a little NS History, I am stoked to have gotten to shoot such an epic and respected feature on the shore, I just borrowed a copy of nsx 9 and going to check it out today...

think we could get all the originals who hit together there for a photo op?

 Maybe you can't land it ..... He did there is a video clip somewhere check my facebook page cameronhunterphoto on facebook
  • + 1
 Why Cant he??? Sorry but that doesnt make any sence...there is no reason why he couldnt. People have done bigger and as big as that in the past, therefore it is not impossible to do so. SO...... without witnessing yourself of him failing, you can not make that assumption Wink

Not being bitchy....just saying... Razz ( its 4am here so sorry if that sentence made little sence)
