This could be the Sahara Desert but no, we're on beautiful Huntington Beach, in California!
Here it is!

Cody Pollard at HEIGHT!!! Cody's the only rider I've seen blast straight up the pocket corner to catch an air. He loves it.
Chris James gave me the heads up that a flip over the spine was likely going to happen if he landed the hip smooth... He actually landed the flip really clean, considering how this pic looks...
Chris James is down with BMX for life
Chris James, current high-air in practice champ.
Love having this guy's presence. Chase Hawk
