Yup, but for 20 bucks a day for unlimited jumps isn't so bad.  
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

I saw something about those big airs bags at a local hill, but I was wondering if you can suffer some serious injuries on that thing?
I don't wanna come out with a broken back or anything. I'd want to do some jumps on to it otherwise

Well of course there's always a chance of injury but is less than trying it out on the slopes with no safety cushion.  I would rather land on my neck on the bag than on the slope.  LOL

Thats pretty rad. My resort had an airbag for one weekend and i bought preordered tickets for it but it popped the day before i was going to hit it.

I have a pretty bad wrist. When I fall I tend to ball up my palm to save myself from pain. Having a bag to catch you is nice..I wish I can learn to land a 360 with that bag. Congrats btw.

I think it was the third..
the previous tries were something like a corked 360 or backroll.. I don't know :D
when gone higher I added the last 180 of the rotation and land switch


big air bag: true fun!!!

There is a bag all year at another resort close to me so I'll probably end up hitting that up at some point this season for sure. There are some real nice jumps that I'm hesitant to really throw anything big off of before I try on an airbag.

I've always wondered if you land with the board nose first into the bag will it pop?

yep agree, it isn't bad especially when you can only test it out every so often. If it was a weekly thing, l would have to rethink

Great job man, I don't even know how you brought yourself to visualize that kind of rotation... how did you prep for it before this clip?
