    Short edit of building and riding a diy stick. Sure would like to have more space to work in. The Garden shed makes me want to pull out my hair and boot out the walls from time to time.

    SICK! :rock:

    This is so right on. The only way I could be more impressed is if you told us you were no-boarding in every shot.

    In fact, i kind of hope you don;t, as that may be enough to make me hang up my boots.

    My shop is 8’x14′ with a post in the middle. 😥 How does that vacuum setup seal? Were those cliff drops self shot?

    All the riding is no bindings and no rope. Don’t hang up your boots. I just spend too much time screwing around on this kind of setup.

    Oh man I bet some days you’d love to take a saw to that post. It seals ok, but I run a continuous pump with a decent cfm. A pump with an auto shut off would be redundant with my setup. All the shots where the camera doesn’t move were self shot.

    Wow! It must take 20 minutes for each shot. :bow: Especially when the board flys into the wild blue yonder! On the vac setup is there sealing tape on the box that holds the bag? Does the box seal right against the mold?

    The camera is on a timer so I give myself however many minutes I need to get to the top and set the stop watch on the wrist watch for the same time. Camera usually is set to burn 1-2 minutes of video each time.

    The wood frame and bladder has a couple rings of gasket foam around the wood frame. It seals to a mdf platen that’s got formica laminate on it. The ribs and tip blocks mount to the platen and can be easily moved for different shapes.

    Thanks for the info. Always learning. That timer’s a sweet luxury.
