Grant Taylor, Ollie.

JUMPBOYZ I am not going to give you a rundown of every place we went. Just what I remember and what was fun or funny, I guess. I mean this is a tour article, shit. In the USA, to boot. Nine-, ten-, and eleven-hour drives. Gas stations and piss stops. You live for those. Sunglasses, knives, newspapers, smokes, I wonder if you’re reading this on paper? You could be at home beer for some, coffee for others. These little and big gas stations or working on your computer. If you are reading this on paper, spread across the United States have everything you need and more than a lifetime of what you will never use. The people who work in it makes me happy. I don’t like computers. I’m typing on a computer. these places are incredible. Poor unfortunate souls. they seem to have It’s not my copmputer. I do not own a computer. You ever hear some the worst job in the world, and it is written all over each of their faces. fucker say, “Oh, I don’t watch TV”? I wonder if i sound like one of those I was arrested in Arizona many years ago. Near Phoenix, assholes when I inform people of not owning a computer? I bet I do. I actually. The thought of ever going back to Phoenix has been have a friend who i believe has never once in his life sent an e-mail. unappealing ever since. The state of Arizona brings to mind heat, snakes, I love that kind of shit. I still give some sort of a fuck, somehow. meth, the elderly, air conditioning, golf courses, John McCain, the ATF, We did do a thing that kinda kicked off this tour. By that, I mean cops, and patriotic idealists. People waiting to die in the desert. When it wasn’t really a demo. But whatever it was, the kids there liked it. my mind wanders across Arizona, I still think these thoughts, but I have It was at the Berrics in Los Angeles. After that, we headed east toward a new thought amongst those. Sedona, Arizona. Beautiful place. The Las Vegas. Chad Bowers (Alien team manager) was driving, Arto Saari words “sliding rock” must have come out of Arto’s mouth a hundred (the tallest Alien member) sat shotgun. This was to be, what i later found times the night before getting to Sedona as he explained how stunning out, Artos first demo tour since he’s been on the Workshop team. By the and wild Sedona was and how you could slide down a natural rock time we hit Nevada, I’d been up for 48 hours. slide at “sliding rock.” I had no interest in this rockslide once I laid Matt Ball showed us a few spots in and around Las Vegas. Kenny eyes on it and took the nearest path away from the fat pale tourists that Anderson came by once we had finished skating the rail spot. I think I have a were lathering in the pools surrounding the rocky oasis. This path led me picture in here at said spot. Nice seeing you, Kenny. And thanks, Matt. I hope to a cliff jump. Others followed and one by one we were jumping off this you still got that pin I gave you. forty-foot rock into cold clear water. Everyone except Tyler Bledsoe. If there was a flatbar at the top, Tyler would have jumped. (Sorry, Tyler. I know. Low blow.)

Arto feebled the longest rail. Where was that? Grant Taylor took us to a rock jump in Atlanta that you had to swim to. I almost accidentally killed a teenage boy there. I dove not seeing him. He came up as I was coming down, inches from a face-to-face collision. This jump was mellow-about 30 feet. And there was a lower one, too-about fifteen feet. There were some raw peaks there. Real rural white trash. And Christians on weekend getaway. One Christian said to another who was scared to jump that the water felt like Jesus tissue and that it won’t hurt you. Jesus tissue. Grant did a flip from almost the top of the big one. I feel like we jumped somewhere in Texas. I know I’m backtracking here. There was a good amount of skating in Texas. Guru Khalsa took us to spots near Housten ‘til five in the morning. Thanks, Guru. Oh, and Grant put on a pretty good demo at South Side Skatepark. I skated like shit. Okay, so we’re reaching the end here. Who’s on board still? Who came? Who went? Marquis switch smithed that rail. He also jumped in Sedona. First time he ever swam in water outside of a pool and his first jump ever. I was impressed. So by this time Heath, AVE, Grant, Jake, Cody, Greene, Rodent, Chad, and myself are driving up through South Carolina. AVE is Googling cliff jumps in Greensboro, North Carolina area and comes across a farm with a rock quarry owned by a man named Doug Caragon? Carrington? I can’t remember his lame. Shit. So AVE speaks to Doug and says, “The guy sounds cool. Says we can jump. We should go.” The drive to the farm is about an hour out of the way, But with Doug informing us that there are rock jumps up to 65 feet high, we had to go. We planned a whole new route that would have us close to the farm and we would get up early and jump ‘til the afternoon so as not to miss the demo later that day. We were more than excited and a bit scared. Every building, overpass, or tower we would see, someone would say, “Is that 65 feet?” I guess we never jumped something measured to the T before. I mean if this guy thinks it’s 65 feet but it’s bigger, like he could be downplaying it. It could be 100. Shit.

We got up early and arrived on the farm. it was insane. Big cliffs all around. A man-made beach with speakers blaring Ozzy, a campsite, and restrooms. The water was crystal blue. I felt like i was in a teen movie from the 70s. Doug explained the different peaks and how to get to them. You had to walk to the big one (65-footer)-up a windy gravely road that led to the top of the quarry. The night before, we’d discussed how gnarly it would be to run and jump off a cliff without looking over the edge. Jumping blind. A cliff you have never been to. Never even glanced over the side. Just being taken to the top, seeing the path, and running off. AVE, Cody, and I were preparing to hold on to the treesand rocks as we trekked down to the edge of the cliff. It was high. It was a cliff. Right then Heath runs by us dropping out of sight. Heath did it. He jumped blind. It was gnarly. We all looked down at him in amazement as he laughed and looked back up at us. Not everyone jumped the big one. Jake didn’t. Jake, you can’t say, “I wasn’t scared,” if you didn’t jump. Speaking of scared. Rodent jumped once. He was stoked and we said good job. But it was hid announcement, “Fuck it. I’m jumping again,” that got him in trouble. He walked all the way up and got to the edge only to back down and get heckled the whole way back down to safty. It was so bad that it almost seemed as if he didn’t jump in the first place. He wouldn’t hear the end if it ‘til Virginia. The end of the tour. Welcome to Cacka. You’re home, Rodent.

Now that we’d been bitten by the jump bug, the tour and all future members would be jumping off anything and everything we could find. iPhones turned into GPS units for cliffs and bridges. Any bridge off any highway was jumpable. “Chad! Bridge jump!” The van would exit and we would be walking over a mile on train tracks to the bridge we saw off the highway. Then, one by one, we would jump. I jumped first. Or Heath would be right above my head moments after jumping. That bridge was so sketchy. No idea what was down there. It was like the movie Stand By Me but a lower bridge. No train came (though i wanted one to) and we jumped into the water. Sick balls, chopper. We heard about a cliff jump and rope swing that sounded perfect and dangerous in Birmingham, Alabama. Boy oh boy, the whole gang was very excited to see what new jumping we could do at this folklore-filled mecca of jumps. We parked the van and walked a paved road that turned into dirt. We could see the water. A car horn honked and slowly getting out of a PT Cruiser was a very agitated security guard. The old man was scared and nervous. Told us no swimming, no jumping. Said he was hired by the owners of the land to make sure no one trespass. Especially when it comes to places in America with water, rocks and rope swings. We were heartbroken to say the least. You might think, “Fuck that old man. You shoulda just gone past him and jumped in the water.” Yeah, I thought that too. But you had to have seen the old timer’s face and just how sad and lonely he seemed, guarding people from their own freedom. We actually should have bribed him. I don’t know. I’m still bitter about it.

This frontside flip of Dylan is easily one of the greastest tricks I’ve seen go down in person.
