really - two minders would be ideal. Catching at the top. Also - would be nice if you had someone there to demonstrate the right technique. Maybe one of your badminton partners would help!

Good luck - BTW: CSP makes a much stronger Skid plate for your Beta for when you need one.

The right technique is what will help a bunch. BTW, has anyone told you lately?

I remember when I was getting into this stupid sport and bought a 315. I was bashing the shit out of the skidplate and actually bought a thicker one so that I could hit the rocks harder without bending it up so much!

That's pretty much how we rode back in the seventies. That was before all this new fangled bunny hoppy crap came along. If'n yer skid plate ain't bashed & bent, you aren't ridin' hard enough.

I always called it badmitten.

I guess that you have a knowledge of the game to spell it correctly.

Hey, it's father's day. I can wear plaid shorts if I want to!





I still haven't tried the taller wall. I'm looking at it a lot, but but enough cajones yet.

Very nice. The wall set up, not the shorts.
