Bonus: Ian Brown vs the Leap of Faith (2000) by Jan Welch
Song: Pink Floyd – Wish You Were. 2012 Repost.
In 2000, Ian Brown from Australia attempted to jump the now infamous “leap of faith” in San Diego for his first and last time.
Unlike everyone before and after him he did not jump the “leap of faith” by simply acid dropping over the top of the rail.
Ian tried to clear the first set and the part of the flat before going over the rail.
He did not have enough speed and hit the rail with his lower back while rotated 180. This edit was made and never released.
It was supposed to appear in United Front 2: Trash (2004) as a bonus section but there was not enough space left on the Dvd to include it.

Hitting big airs has always been one of my favorite things to do.
As a professional rollerblader I was always limited to jumps the size that skateparks were willing to build.
I originally gravitated towards skiing as a way to scratch my itch for bigger air and when a publicly accessible mega ramp was built at Woodward West the two worlds collided.
I found the sports went hand-in-hand and it has been awesome to be able to take tricks from the slopes to the mega and vice-versa. It has now become the perfect way to cross-train and have the time of my life doing it. – Chris Haffey.
