per the link and Lynn

"The Snakebite trail on the South property now has one section open and ready to run thanks to the hard work of Frankie and Witter. I'm thinking it's at a minimum a blue-black level, hard to tell until someone actually runs it. The rocks aren't necessarily huge, but there are some ugly lines you have to take because of the sharp pointy type rocks. I walked in so far, thinking, okay, this is good, that's good, I can do this, wait a minute, how the heck do you get through this part?

This first section also includes an optional rock ledge area that is much harder and off-camber. They plan to open up that ledge even more to provide multiple lines of attack."

sounds enticing:beer:

Actuator skidplate is on - it's built like a brick $$hihouse. All I have left to do is replace those silly shackles. I'm working on it, I'm working on it.

Welp, it's much more than inspiration tape Dan. Don't be downplayin the Iron Pig's ability to conquer now. If you'd go ahead and tried it then I'd be sayin I've seen it all. But I know you're gonna chacken out :flipoff2:. :flipoff2:

I still don't know what "inspiration plugs" are. But I'm still going to trend to blues. Don't let Jeff fool ya. I got through blacks all right, but only with *close* spotting by Jeff.

Shackles are on. New bushings in rear too. Let's roll, er, rock.

Alright Dan, this is the best I could come up with:

Inspiration Plugs: A metaphoric description of spark plugs used in automobiles. It is a Psychological inspiration for <type your name here> to try obstacles on “black” trails with Dan’s virtual vision of “you can do it!!” :D

That's pretty funny. Another land locked surfer. My parents had a house in sea isle city, nj. for 15 years. Then they sold it. :frown: I haven't been out for a few years. Hard to find time. Have you surfed anywhere out of the country?

Only key west.:eek: I have been to puerto rico and costa rica. Costa Rica were the biggest waves I have ever been on, 12'+. Really makes you pay attention.

I would say so... and also safely say I would go head over onto reef if I was on 12 ft. waves!

so... anyone want to surf some rocks soon?
