The Log Jump, Sweet new move
The Log Jump, a new move brought to you by the CKS Squad in Colorado Location- Colorado River, Glenwood Springs Colorado The most critical component to the log jump is setup. It is very difficult to do it without a log, obviously. For this you have two options: 1.Get some really strong friends to send down a tree when you’re surfing or 2.Surf the wave all day long during peak runoff to make sure you are there when log comes through Once the log is heading your way you have two choices, fight or flight. Assessing the log is really important if you don’t want to get worked. If it looks good (no bad branches), get on top of the wave as if you are setting up for a blunt. Once the log is in the trough of the wave accelerate down the wave with a stroke and push your bow down just like initiating a blunt right before you reach the log. When you hit the log, lean back pull up your legs and let out a big heeeyaaaa. If all goes well, you should be airborne. If not you may get the wind knocked out of you as the tree crosses your chest, or worse. Be safe and have fun Jed Selby Buena Vista Colorado

Have you ever had a tough time convincing your family that your black eye isn't that big of a deal? Or spent an hour explaining to your Tinder date the difference between "homeless" and "houseless," just so they would understand why you brought them back to a tent in the woods? 

If you answered yes to either of these things, hopefully this blog can help avoid some of those awkward conversations!
