The site has had the most traffic ever now thanks to everyone for reading and sharing their thoughts on trails. Im hoping to get more posts up like this from different people all over the world on their view of trails. I guess since it hasnt rained and you cant really dig the site will get updated more with some interesting stuff to read and photos ( there isnt any rain in the forecast and I just dont see things getting clayed till may/june). Anyway here some photos I dug up with explanations below them.
Not sure how many people remember this cover shot but its Taj at Posh from 1997, that’s 15 years ago crazy really to think how long its been around now.
I just found this photo and having a hard time remembering when the heck we used tarps back then but it is from 2001, its crazy to think but it is from Pipeline and for some reason there is a tarp on one of the landings. I think when the trails got real dry we would soak them down and put a tarp on to keep
the moisture in but we never used them to shield them from rain back then.
This is from 2003 right before Nam got plowed, the pink x’s on trees meant those trees were getting cut down, and the rider is Stauffer.
One of the best photos ever I think, its Chris “Sal” Sales doing a dead sailor and it just shows how chill and relaxed trails can be it just looks like hes sitting in midair.
This is 8 years ago Abe wall riding this crazy contraption we made at Catty, I bet most people never knew Catty had something like that.
Big dig session on a berm at Catty in 2004, you will never get that many people working on a berm at once ever again, check out Alex Bugbee.
Super grown in Catty trails in 2008 the beginning of the tarp era.
Not sure how many people have seen this, its a layout of the trails from a couple years ago made by Treebell, if your lucky enough to see it theres one of Posh as well….

Love the throw back stuff.
I think that white tarp at pipeline is actually a bed sheet that I put on the landing. I soaked the sheet down to try to keep the landing moist. I also remember experimenting with sodding the side on that wang hip landing.
awww yeah i do remember that now, and we tried it at nam too.. i guess if it worked well we would still be using it.
That issue of Ride was GOLD! It was for me the best issue of ride ever! The Cover was so inspiring and a killer sequence inside of taj 3ing butcher?, it had a dope Trail article in it, The Standard ad with Ground chuck at Posh, Blew my mind. Im from Australia and at the time We dug but had only dreamed of such places to ride. I actually still keep that issue right by bed and regularlily gaze at the pics,hahah.Its the reason i saved my money for like 5 years and came to see it in the flesh! Those other pics of Sal and stauff and shit were sick to. I hope shit picks up for you guys, It fuckin sucks kids of today are lazy shitbags! But hopefully shitll turn round? Waht else can you hope for? rhytsy.
