So….there you are…..standing on the edge…looking over and pondering the outcome. You’re thinking “Hmmmn…I know I can do this, I just haven’t done it before.” You’re thinking there are only two outcomes.
Outcome #1 – You start your approach with doubt in your mind and you feel squirrely as you approach the jump. Upon takeoff you’re in the backseat causing you to miss your grab and almost bite it on your landing. Your friends look at you and are wondering what’s wrong. You normally rock lines like this. ?
Outcome #2 – You nail the roll in, launch a huge air, make that sweet grab, stomp the landing and ride away in glory as your friends are both amazed and a bit jealous. You grab your board and walk back up the hill with a huge grin on your face. “What? I wasn’t scared.” : )
What’s your outcome? Figure it out before dropping in and your results will often surprise you.
Happy trails from the crew at MBS and see you out in the dirt!
DON’T FORGET! NEW PRODUCT IN STOCK!
MBS PRO 90 – Now Stocked with Matrix Lites!
The super light Pro 90 has just gotten better with an upgrade to MBS Matrix Lite trucks. Now you can buy one board that will take care of all your freestyle and kite needs. The deck is truly original in terms of shape and construction, saving weight and creating a well-balanced board. The super strong unidirectional carbon-fiber weave comes together to create a stiff, responsive and extremely poppy deck. The Pro 90 was designed to meet the demands of serious kiters and freestylers around the world and this year with the addition of MBS Matrix Lite trucks those riders can go bigger, faster, and higher than ever before.
