 Wicked no foot can variation!! Interesting choice of jumps to try it on though. The leg jam landing definitely adds style points and creativity. Extension could have been better, but great effort regardless. If I were a teacher (which I am clearly not), I would grade this trick combo at a B+. Congratulations!! I am out of gold stars unfortunately, so you will have to settle for an all expense paid trip....... to the hospital.

 I like the way he's thrown a whip into the mix... Whips always add style, so up to an A- ?

 I AGREE WITH FALLEN55. SOME KID'S LOGIC ON THIS SITE MAKE SENSE NEVER..

WHY DOES JUMPINGMAN HAVE SO MANY NEGATIVE VOTES? HE IS JUST AS SARCASTIC AS RECKLESSNESS.. I BET PEOPLE DON'T EVEN READ THESE COMMENTS AND JUST RANDOMLY CLICK UP OR DOWN HERE.

JUMPINGMAN, YOU GOT MY VOTE BRO.

 once the neg props start for someone, everyone jumps on the bandwagon and gives neg props

 I am pretty sure jumpingman probably doesn't care much about his negative props. Mostly because props have no meaning and influence absolutely nothing that actually matters.

 I wish I could meet everyone that threw a negative vote at Spoonyman, Jumpingman, and Fallen55, face to face and ask them one simple question, "Do you even have a brain?"

 I don't see why spoonyman got so many Negative props? He didn't say anything wrong did he.

 Cant everybody just stop arguing and wait for tommorows pod to come and bitch about that instead............? or even better just put a sock in it and only have positive comments to the photographer and rider....?

 I'm with Allan. Why bitch about Picts you had nothing to do with. On the other hand I think any real rider has had one of those oh shit moments. and I mean real rider by who ever goes out and tries there hardest whether your on a walmart bike or a 2000 dollar norco. Don't matter what you ride as long as you have fun doing it.

 FINALLY a POD without a $1300 camera and adjusted saturation shot by a regular person. a picture that everyone can relate to.
  • + 0
 Whilst I agree with your attitude, the camera that took this will be well over $1300 including lenses. It's a video screenshot, hence the 1920x1080 frame size
  • + 24
 gay ^^
  • + 8
 Doorknob, You're so dumb, a screenshot is a pic of a video.. lets understand that, so you're assuming a $1300 camera or lower was being used, where you maybe right, you're probably not, if you look in the photos of silvia films profile it'll show they use a 7d or 5d mark 2. Costing roughly $1700-$2900 plus whatever lens they used, which will more than likely be a high end expensive bit of glass.

So calling Elliot gay from fizzy, get your fact right before even thinking you know what you're on about. You dont.

 If anyone is dumb, it is troyster-dockree. Give the guy a break. He was just pointing out that not every POD needs to be of the highest quality.
  • + 6
 I think everyone needs to enjoy a nice chilled tea. I think everyone agrees that they like the fact that this isn't a professional awesome picture, it's a cool picture taken by some bikers.

 I think I am dumb because I don't understand the need for being an Internet tough guy about cameras.
