Default Unispin! 10 minutes!


holy crap, i just learned how to unispin in like 10 minutes, the only
really hard part was getting the confidence to actually try it! It was
so awesome when it just happened and i landed my first one. I do admit
to shafting myself once though, and yes...
IT HURT, but it was worth it. I cant wait to make some videos now

Wow, ten minutes.... That's it, I'm going to learn tomorrow. I expect
that like the suicide mount, it's easy except for getting over the fear
of hurting yourself, right?

Nice Austin! It's all mental... Not that there isn't a physical aspect.
It's just that you have to be mentally ready to physically hurt
yourself.

My 180 suicide mount attempts brought me much damage but I wouldn't have
kept trying if I...wasn't...umm.. You know that part in Into The Thunder
Dragon where Kris is talking about jumping into the shepherds hut? It's
like that. Damn I really want that quote that he says...

It's something like,
"I don't know why it's important to hop into a shepherds hut on the side
of a mountain in Bhutan, but it is."
And some other stuff, but that was the general gist of it.
