I almost ate shit on the last one a few times when I was there. There
was a trench at the base where it transitions to dirt, if you weren't
angled down enough it caught your front tire kinda funny. Good fun though.

The way I do a wall ride is like a berm but without the turning, if you think of it that way the fear disapears

You're kinda right, most wallrides aren't physically challenging, they are mental obstacals.

Those are bank rides, not wall rides.

It's ok Andrew. This isn't dropmachine where people get all heated about what to call certain stunts. If someone wants to call a non-vertical feature a wall-ride the community out here is supportive of that….

Just don't tell DM that otherwise they'll get their panties in a bunch and explode….

jokes jokes…

for me, a wall ride is all about momentum. You're all good untill you loose speed. If your speed is up, its pretty hard to fall. It might be hard to make a wall ride LOOK good, but as long as you keep up your speed, you shouldnt fall. At least, thats what i have found.

Agreed.
It's all simple physics.
