I'm totally stoked. I've been riding for a while, but started in ND where we don't have much for a terrain park. It wasn't until late last season that I started hitting tables with much success, but I'm a pretty quick learner.
 
So yesterday I went to the kiddie park with a buddy and we practiced 3s off of the small jumps until we felt that we had it down pretty well. A lot of our progression was due to my reading topics around here about spinning off of tables. After getting it down alright in the kiddie park, we decided to go try our luck off of the bigger tables. Keep in mind, our tables here are only about 20 ft... nothing extremely major.
 
Anyways, I finally just went after it. My attempts prior to these have been pretty timid. I just told myself to rip it. Of course, when I just went after it, it just happened perfectly. I think if you go into the table with any doubt, it's not going to happen for you.
 
Not an exciting story, but I'm totally stoked. This was my goal for the year!

Hey dude, don't talk yourself down.  A three is a big step.  Soon you'll be landing gently onto step-ups and doubles.  So, what's next in the lineup?
I'm going to gap front board a flat down when I get home.... Man I'm going to get broke off...
