Have you been back?
In reply to Paul R: How did he get flipped over?! Double ropes? That could have been nasty.
Paul Crusher R - on 14 Jun 2012
In reply to Paul R: No not yet Tyler, waiting on the weather again. Right foot popped off and shot over the top of the rope, not a lot you could do about it. Its a pretty safe fall, that was about the worst way it could happen.

This is a bit of a 'thing' for you it seems. Is there ever music in videos that you do like? Indeed, is there any music you like?

He's not the only one, some people just don't mention it very often.

With youtube you pays your money (or not) and takes your choice.

In reply to Formerly Known as Pylon King: taste is a funny thing, lack of it more so.
Yeh it was onto a peg, which appears to be ok, and can be backed up with a wire. I wouldnt have liked to take that lob onto the wire though, it may have blown through and would probably blown the hold at the same time.

Good job you weren't carrying a toddler
Paul Crusher R - on 14 Jun 2012
In reply to shark: ? would have been a good bit of cushioning.
shark - on 14 Jun 2012
In reply to Paul R:

No such luck - it would have shot straight out when you flipped upside down. A timely lesson for us all.

Quite. I've done Severe's with bigger runouts. E8 should have a factor three groundfall at the very least.

In reply to Paul R: Wow Paul! Good effort. So close and yet so far.
You must have bags of skill and lots of courage.

Nah, that's E6. E8 is the same but falling onto a pile of scrap metal. E9 if it's on fire.

In reply to Paul R: Where are they huge Paul. Get a spell check numpty.
Nik Jennings - on 15 Jun 2012
In reply to Paul R: Surely gigantic rather than huge?
Paul Crusher R - on 15 Jun 2012
In reply to John Postlethwaite: Balls. Your ;) just not down wid the kids john, we spell everything wrong these days on purpose. Pedant.

In reply to Paul R:

Are these bags of skill for sale too ?

Medium for me - I'm not that ambitious.

Can't be done. His hands are still shaking

In reply to Paul R: I've only got your best interest at heart Paul. If you could pay more attention to detail then maybe you foot wouldn't have popped.
Paul Crusher R - on 15 Jun 2012
In reply to John Postlethwaite: Ahh I'm filling up here.

In reply to Paul R:

Nice one chap. Good effort and all that. Made me wince. Pity there isn't a high quality copy of it.
Paul Crusher R - on 16 Jun 2012
In reply to mattrm: there is actually, the raw one is massively better quality but the file size is huge, talking Gb's.. well its niks video and his editing, not sure if there is a way of reducing the file size without it loosing the quality...?
Paul Crusher R - on 19 Jun 2012
In reply to Paul R: If you've not seen enough of this and for those that wanted a better quality version here it is - loads better, also with real time sound for full effect, just turn it up a bit.
