  • Both of my kids are crying for me but I can’t seem to stop watching this.

  • Another fun one to watch! Thanks, Rich.

  • steadham’s backside air on the peninsula was pretty sick

  • It sucks that Chris Miller ate shit because he owned that pool. The corner backside air is rad as hell and took enormous stones to pull off.
    Love these vids. Thanks for posting. I wish I could find them on dvd, they must not have sold well because I can’t find them anywhere anymore.
