A nice backdrop makes all the difference

This local spot, the Monkey Face jump, kinda has an ugly name, but it sure makes up for it with its beautiful scenery.

I love it man! You’ve done so much for the 24″ scene and the local scene here in the Vegas area. This spot is so much fun. Spent all day there and it didn’t even bother us too much that it was 110°. Expect to see more from this spot. The irony… Less than a mile away, there are two dirt parks that were constructed wrong and are unrideable. Lol go figure..
