near death experiences (well, falling..) 25-Nov-2005 At 12:06:48 PM Goodvibes
Exactly runnit, just what the hell were you thinking taking a rack to Nowra.

I have taken a few big whippers and jumps but nothing all that scary since they were mostly on sport routes with nice shiney ring bolts. There have been times when I was scared I was going to fall but when it came to actually falling it was all pretty calm. Nothing you can do then anyway.

Jumping can be soo much worse, so much more time to think about it but as soon as you launch off into space it just feels great.

There were maybe some times whilst surfing largish waves and getting pitched it felt like things slowed down a bit before the inevitable thrashing. Then again, that was probably more to do with the cones before hand.
