East Coast Stomps it Out Jul 10, 2009

Look! A flying hippo!

Here you see the predatory ‘Wonka’ animal, hopping over the Hippo who was enjoying a quick drink at the watering hole. Enthralling!

Here are those shots I mentioned last night. Wonka’s got insane ups. He not only 180’d it, but almost pulled a tuck-no-hander off it and he landed a few 3 hops. I hit it a few times. The last time, I tucked up high as hell and forgot to feather the landing. My wrist is bruised right now. Gotta heal up quick!

Crazy ish! BIG UP ANDY T. for the pics. See some more here.

    Don’t make it a competition. We’re all just in it for fun. When people take it too seriously, it ruins the energy. Keep it positive please!

    Cool stuff, fixed-gear freestyle, that’s going back to circus tricks!

    Get some helmets on your heads though guys – it ain’t worth it…
