No idea. Everyone just sized it up and mellowed out for like 2 hours. Lots of run ins but no attempts. Then Dave Watson showed up, said "fuck this. too much talk." went up to the top, did one run in, and then launched it perfect. I don't think anyone even got it on camera! I just watched him sail through the air with my jaw dropped. Then realized, oh, shit, I should have shot that! :)

This is incredible, scary and all the rest. although i think that this pic is better than the sh3 sequence. on video it looks "small" compared to this pic.

boy, i wonder how strong someone has to be to actually nail it? Not to mention the balls to try it ?!
