We would start at the farthest end possible, and start pedaling. White knuckle, full throttle dead sailor for the feeling of getting air. One time I had a board and this plastic rubbermaid drawers that I stole from my room, leaving whatever was in it behind. I set it up on top of this hill we had, where below our driveway circled around the house. Think how sketchy; 1-a peice of plastic is the base of the ramp and could explode anytime and 2-since it was on the edge of the hill I was at least jumping 6ft to flat everytime. I finally got smart and moved the lip back so I was landing smoothly on the back side.
Next time you are bored riding, take it back a few steps to the basics. Keep it simple
Also check out www.digbmx.com, where a photo I took is featured on the Photo Daily, I'm pretty psyched.
