Well we officially have something real to show you! After many many months of hard work behind the scenes, our barge came in today and the course build is nearly complete. Tomorrow we'll be putting on the finishing touches, hanging the banners and taking our first test runs! Come down to Victoria's Inner Harbour this weekend to enjoy Jump Ship, a free event brought to you by the Dockside Mountain Bike Society.

 Jordie says you pump the roller before it... I am skeptical, but have no reason to doubt him. Guess we'll see tomorrow!

 I really think they should make a skate park if they do this in the future: multiple stories, more efficient area use. Just my thoughts though. o.O world travelling skate park?????

 Better show up if you are local and reading this! The Helicopter rolls in on Saturday for the big air comp, beer gardens are open Friday-Sunday, camp of champions air bag is on site and free for you to hit up as well and we have lots of raffles on the go with a complete Banshee bike and a bike from Norco! Spread this around!!

 I just checked out the barge... There is a short roll in to a large gap on the first jump... the jumps are big... if the Riders are tricking all of those, then this is going to be pretty damn crazy. You really should plan to attend this if you can.

 I was super stoked on this event, but then all the local island DJs got involved and now the majority of the people coming to the event are the dirty victoria rave hippies. More people stoked on the music and not the comp on the facebook page, gross.

 i'm not going to lie. i thought it'd be bigger. still pretty Steezy!

 you can only go so big on a barge..
  • 1 0
 but still, hell barge was bigger
  • 1 0
 The pics don't do it justice, the barge is huge!
  • 1 1
 but seeing after hell barge in person (i was at the baseball game they filmed at) I don't think you could get a barge much bigger than hell barge. Big barges abound in SF bay, but Hell barge was a freaking monster.

 Is it just me or is that thing listing to one side? You'd think they'd check the level of the deck and add some weight (more dirt) to the high side....
  • 1 0
 i think its just the perspective, but you may be right
  • 3 0
 it is definitely listing. You don't notice when you're on it though.

 IT was leaning quite a bit but to balance it out they would have need about about 200 tons of what ever!! i know that seems like alot and maybe even a rumor but its not i was down there helping and thats what jordie (track designer) and Geoff (Jumpship event planner) said it would take
  • 1 0
 well, the good news is the "hot" tub did balance it out... kinda.

Thank god for magical 200 ton 4-person mini-tubs. lol

  • 1 0
 The wedding already happened, I'm guessing Cam is on his honeymoon.
  • 1 0

 I just got an account a few days ago and I haven't been able to figure out how to get a POD or add stuff like ''favorite shots''. can any body help me?
  • 1 0
 probably, but start by "posting a comment" instead of replying. As for faving stuff, just click the button that say "add to faves". and to make something ur POD, click the buton that says "make my POD." pretty simple
  • 1 0
 i'll be down for sure
  • 1 0
 whats that song
  • 3 5
 Looks unrideable...
  • 14 0
 yeah, its pretty much just for show... I don't think anyone's actually gonna try to RIDE the thing, that'd be ridiculous...
