/snofan/../images/users/Jakyll/Water-landing.jpg

I found it on the Internet somewhere, but can't remember where though. [:(]

If anyone knows the outcome, has an acutal video clip, or knows if it comes from some "Sled Neck" type video, I'd like to know, so I can see the result.

Personally, I don't think it's possible, but I keep saying that each time the new "Sled Necks" comes out, also.

lol.....hes gonna land somehow, it looks like its gonna be a pretty hard landing and he might have some chin to handlbar contact, but it mainly depends on the experience of the rider, regardless who is riding it, they will get a pretty good jolt when the hit as i see no landing ramp

Actually that is a clip from Thunderstruck, the guys does land that and ride away. He pulls quite a few jumps over a hundred feet off that ramp, the dude even pulls a barefoot skier across the lake-the whole time the skier is pulling trick and stuff...funny as hell! Of course they do end up sinking the sled a couple times, but there is a lot of killer footage in that video. Definetly recomend getting it, the guys who made the video are frequently on the Snowest forum.

It is open water, like I said he jumps it in the video probely 15 times that they show - and sinks it twice. Think about it, if someone gave you a sled versus you buying it, I'm sure you would be more apt to try crazier stuff.....They just take it to the extreme, and I have the video and it's not fake.

There are always going to be disbelievers out there. For some people, if they don't see it live with their own eyes, it is fake no matter what you say. No, I don't believe everything I read, but if I see it, and I have, I believe. Would I do that with my own sled? No, no, and no. If it was sponsored and they gave me a sled? Yes, yes and hell ya! I have seen them run on the lakes and it looks like fun, but alas, I have no sponsor, nor am I rich, so I am a sideliner.

Yes Quinlan jumped the ski lift, over shot it then bailed and walked away. Kaufman jumped the cabin and came up short and snapped his leg.

No flyin ryan, I'm almost positive that the broken leg came from the over shot chair lift...
