wheres the boat?
(Oct 5, 2014 at 10:06)
I guess Jump Golf Buggy just doesn't have the same ring to it
(Oct 5, 2014 at 16:50)
Might not have a ring, but I'd jump this
(Oct 5, 2014 at 21:09)
Sooooo change the name if there's no boat.... I mean, they didn't even get creative with the boat idea, two barges? Jumps back and forth across a water gap? I mean, if you're goin to step it up at least keep the water aspect, that was the cool part!!

^ I think you should jump ship...Who cares about the name.

Whoever gets the lowest score wins, right?

Biking and golf are two amazing sports - I've always thought that golf courses would suit a slopestyle event if it's in the right valley area. Nice easy access for spectating and enjoying a comfortable atmosphere where guys can still throw it big is win win to me! Interesting location - diggin it!

I thought jumpship was a slope style event?
(Oct 5, 2014 at 22:32)
it is, however since the jumps were massive no one wanted to ride it on a hard tail or a slope bike... lots of people cased haha.
(Oct 5, 2014 at 9:34)
Would a more dirt jump bike be more orientated for this?
(Oct 5, 2014 at 9:38)
oh no these jumps are massive
(Oct 5, 2014 at 15:52)
Suspension is mainly good for absorbing bumps so you can go faster, but less necessarry for absorbing impacts as most full-suspension riders think.
Unless you go Rampage style big of course.
Yes these jumps are massive, but these are also nothing bigger than the jumps at many BMX events.
Still, it looks like it was a great event and I would love to shred down that course myself. Looks like a lot of fun!
(Oct 5, 2014 at 9:08)
This looks pretty freaking awesome
(Oct 5, 2014 at 12:01)
I totally forgot, what's jumpship again? Big jumps and rad dudes? What's this about boats?

What some of you may not remember - Bear Mountain golf course used to be one of the best places to ride on Vancouver Island - we called it the Highlands, it was 45 min ride from my house in Victoria. They completely destroyed huge numbers of amazing trails to build a stupid F***ing golf course and condos for all the ancient and rich seniors - not to mention making many uneducated real estate agents rich in the process.
(Oct 5, 2014 at 9:27)
did they all go for a round of golf after?
(Oct 5, 2014 at 16:25)
No the golfers are all going for a round of jumps after.
(Oct 5, 2014 at 22:11)

(Oct 5, 2014 at 11:17)

(Oct 5, 2014 at 22:07)

(Oct 5, 2014 at 9:20)

(Oct 5, 2014 at 16:33)
road gap? I think you mean cart gap.
(Oct 5, 2014 at 21:41)
So this is what you get when you combine trail builders and golf course grounds keepers... Soo pretty!
(Oct 5, 2014 at 10:32)
