one of my friends who doesnt ski told me he saw a kid building a kicker up to a rail at wolcott park in west hartford CT like around the corner from my house...i wish i had thought to go, if whoever it was wants to hit it up tomorrow let me know
yeah, i b da one who u saw ....u cant hit it from the very top, and u have to learn how to ollie, i had no speed and after a few crashes and getting nutted, i hit it switch-nollie, disaster 270, pretzle 270 out. Sooo ill, sweet rail too. hit me up if anyone wants to hit some spring/summer shit in w.hartford
yeah we hit it from the very top cause it was a good size jump and catapulted by 2 people in, we made it about 40 feet out of the 50 and i got nutted and fucked up my shoulder. i'm down to hit it again though
yo that rail is tough man, how are you going to hit it? me and twiptip had trouble with it with snow, are you just going to step on to it? where in wh do you live? do you go to conard cause i might know you.
i live in west hartford too, I spotted some good places but i cant try anything cause i have a shattered wrist. The one that looks the best other than the Wolcott rail is behind Sedgewick. Looks like a decent flat down flat
One of my friends did the Sedgwick rail on his skates and that thing is fucking burly and a little more scary than it looks from the road. I've done Wolcott but I'm definitely not good enough to do Sedgwick.
I'll go if someone wants to drive me....theres a few around my town that are mad hard but would be dope. Ones a big DFD thats only doable on a snowboard 50-50, another would be a straight rail to a big drop, dunno if would be landable. Another one I have to check out near a church, huge down rail, but if you fell off you would probably die. I'll check around another place, I live in Collinsville by the way, its in Canton

^ The double rail in front of Northwest by the road is out of my league but it'd be easy for someone to do once snow accumulates...I've also looked at the double kink past the student union...what else do you have in mind
