No, the Mega Ramp doesn't count
Erik Roner has been keeping busy as evidence from this action-packed new episode of RonerVision! Erik kicks things off skydiving with buddy Bob Burnquist over the 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing and gives us his take on parachute packing 101. Next Erik heads out to Glen Helen raceway joining Greg Godfrey and some of the Nitro Circus Crew for an epic night of truck racing. Summer wouldn't be complete without some good old fashioned R&R, so Erik finishes things off back home in Tahoe, living the good life with son Oskar. As always Oskar gets into big things—this month it's extreme tubing. Hang on!

Burnquist has World Cup fever
So many never been done tricks (including a bunch with a helicopter)
Burnquist's chopper isn't just for railslides on MegaRamps.
Bob Burnquist is back in a big way. He dropped a full length video part last week that was packed with "never been done" tricks, including many that featured a helicopter (yes, a helicopter). Now the latest episode of his Dreamland series shows Burnquist using the same helicopter to scout for backyard pools to skate. Burnquist takes legend Lance Mountain along for the ride as they go up in the whirlybird to find skateable pools from the sky. Then they take the GPS coordinates to go back and locate the pools on the ground.
With four X Games medals and the craziest video part ever, the Brazilian vert skater deserves a rest
It's hard to believe Burnquist is 37.
The skateboarder found it isn't easy to get big air when a helicopter is pushing you down.
Bob Burnquist's "Dreamland" part had a laundry list of "never been done" tricks on his backyard MegaRamp. But all anyone could talk about was the helicopter craziness. Burnquist first got the idea of involving a helicopter after seeing Danny Way drop out of one in 1997. After doing his own version of a helicopter drop-in, Burnquist realized the possibilities were endless. That doesn't mean it was easy. Burnquist had to deal with all kinds of challenges to dial the helicopter tricks for "Dreamland."
Legendary skateboarder Bob Burnquist has been getting in a last few practice runs for X Games Brazil Foz do Iguacu, Brazil on his personal MegaRamp at his home in Southern California. Get a POV look at what it's like to ride the Mega.
