There are few things more fun to ride on your snowboard than a perfectly constructed, BMX-style rhythm section. Watch the Ride Snowboards crew session a giant one in Snoqualmie in the latest 'Built to Ride' episode.
There's something inherently appealing about hitting five jumps in a row of increasing size, with your speed and distance travelled in the air increasing proportionately as you hurtle down the slope.
BMX style dirt jump tracks were the inspiration of this mind-melting course constructed up at Snoqualmie last spring, and with a sprinkling of jib features on top, it made for some pretty crazy snowboarding from Austin Hironaka, Derrek Lever and more.
Built To Ride Episode 3 was filmed at the Summit at Snoqualmie during Hiro and Ten’s hell track inspired "Excellent Rhythm Adventure." Their whole concept of a BMX inspired jump track started as an idea for a smooth flowing rhythm section of five jumps, with steep lips and hallowed out decks all built for maximum air time. The course came together perfectly, transitioning very smooth from small to big with the jumps starting at a mellow twenty-foot gap up to the fifty-footer at the end with quarter pipes and pole jams sprinkled throughout the course. Watch Todd Kirby, Derrek Lever, Austin Hironaka and crew get buck wild on this mind melting course.
