Yeah I cant figure out where his landing is either, its like looking at a picture of a huge snowboard style rock drop. Would definately like to see more pictures like that

That wave is pure awesome. Reminds me of Wave Rock in Western Australia (attached), that's my buddy Nick lookin' up. We skated it coz i hadn't discovered off-road wheelieboards in '98. gotta go back one day... <longing, whistful look>
The kentATB snap is way cool.
also including a snap of the drops we have round my way.. :)

That first pic is beautiful. I wonder if people climb there.

Pretty sure that photo was taken on the south downs, - ( southern England ) I think they came from the Scum atb website which seems to have gone down .

I think the spot is the tank trails

I agree looks like the top hit of the tank trails, I've got some pictures somewhere of Ieuan riding that hit back when I had just started. The landing is a bit sketch but not as bad as it looks. I'll see if I can dig out the pictures from somewhere!

Those descents look pretty scary, I'd be starting quite low on those and working my way up. Its the shot of Matyn James' battle scars on the photobucket album that scares me the most though!
