yesterday I went to the king of dirt finals in santa monica. actually, I missed the finals (they started them way ahead of schedule) but got there in time to the placings... nyquist (the slackers at haro don't have real bios up yet) took first for the day and overall. I didn't get to see my ulterior motive for going; he detached a muscle somewhere, took it easy yesterday, and bailed before I got there—still ended up in second overall after a 10th place finish yesterday.
hung around for the high air competition and saw ronnie chalk break the record and win $8500 with a 20' 4" jump.
I took a bunch of photos, but the jump was parallel to the beach with the audience on the inland side... I got there about 16:30 so everything was backlit from hell. so, none of them really came out worth a damn. I saw some nice cameras walking around though, so I'm sure someone got some decent shots.
