So many never been done tricks (including a bunch with a helicopter)
With four X Games medals and the craziest video part ever, the Brazilian vert skater deserves a rest
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."
Bob Burnquist's attempt at X Games sweep falls short as Sloan wins first gold.
New York City isn't known for creating vert skaters, but the Big Apple produced Elliot Sloan, who won Skateboard Big Air at X Games LA on Thursday. It was the first X Games gold medal for Sloan, whose winning run consisted of a tailgrab 720 over the gap of the MegaRamp and a tailgrab 540 on the quarterpipe. Sloan bested silver-medal winner Tom Schaar and Bob Burnquist, who won bronze. Burnquist was attempting to sweep the Skate Big Air event at all the Global X Games events in 2013, but his switch backside 180 over the gap to Indy 360 on the quarterpipe wasn't enough.
Rome wasn't built in a day, why should Burnquist's ramp be any different
Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham traveled to the Dreamland compound for a chance at glory.
Most people get scared just looking at a MegaRamp. Well, imagine dropping in on one without the use of your legs. That's what extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham did when he visited Bob Burnquist's MegaRamp. Wheelz just might have the biggest balls of any action sports athlete ever. He goes for a front flip first try. He underrotates and lands flat on his back on the knuckle before bouncing down to the flats. Undeterred, Wheelz makes two more attempts. He knocks his teeth out on one of them, forcing Burnquist to use his helicopter to fly him to a nearby dentist.
