Beach BMX

When I was younger I used to build sand jumps at my parents beach house. Obviously sand is very hard to pack down and compress, so these things never really worked. In all honesty though, they weren't as bad as you thought. Anyway, you can imagine it, not only were the jumps made out of sand, but the take off was more than twice as high as the landing, because hey, who really cares about landings. I know I am really rambling now, but that was what most of my jumps were like as a kid. It takes so much fucking effort to build the take off, that by the time you get to the landing you don't really care any more and all you want to do is just bloody ride!

Getting on with things, one time I was hauling ass at this sand jump and because of the nature of the sand, you never knew how much it was going to sink in. Well this time I got bucked so hard forwards, I ended up nose manualling for ages and the seat whacked my in the ass so hard I couldn't sit down on it for about two weeks.

Since then I always thought it would be dope to ride on the beach, like set up a lil flat rail or something and put out an edit to piss people off or something. I found a couple of cool spots and I really wanted to do a decade off this rock with the sunset in the background. I had cover dreams for that odd little endeavour. Anyway, none of that fruity shit ever happened.

However, a FBM dude rode a rock/sandstone wall in California and here is the video of it.
