    I totally agree. Some of those falls really do hurt.

    Thats the great thing about Woodward, If you look real close, you can see that the landing area of the ramp that the backflip was accomplished on, is covered in padding. When I was there, it also had a 3/8' thick piece of "skatelite" on top of the pad to help with "roll outs" if you did land while still maintaining a certain amount of flexability if you fell. The foam pit right to the left of it has been home to many new and difficult "first attempts" at some of the most radical tricks in BMX.

    For those wondering what skatelite is, its a super hard, super durable material similar to masonite, that is much more durable and weather resistant.

    I was going to say how cool it was to see that at Camp Woodward, it's great they let everyone participate like that, as long as you have the money to do so. The end when he's teaching the other little kid is pretty cool too, maybe the younger one will have a video out soon too.
