Great video


not even mad that I wasn’t there to witness this…

The crazy thing is that there looked to be 2-3 walls that he didn’t hit too well on the first 100. If he times the last stroke into the walls, and taper/shaves, the dude is going to throw down an even more ridiculous time


Totally thought the same thing about the walls on the first 100. When he comes heavy, that time will be sick.

Looked like in the first 100 he was taking five strokes to the wall. This increased to 6 I the second hundred, with 7 on the final 25. It looks like he just needs to figure out if he is slightly faster popping up sooner and taking 6 strokes so he can hit the wall cleaner. Fine tuning at this point. Wow!
