Concerning the guys saying they almost got hit while hanging out on the backside of a hill, DO NOT bhang on the backside of any hill. Only bad things can happen.
Jumping is cool, I've done it, I've watched it, I've fixed rigs after going too high, and I don't have a problem with it if done correctly. Problem is, this guy runs around jumping EVERYWHERE, not just big hills with spotters. Example: I repeatedly saw him getting 3+ft of air on the high traffic 2 way "road" between the main 1 way section and the drag strip during one of the big weekends(can't remember if it was Labor Day or Memorial Day). As far as I can tell he's reckless and loves attention; 2 things that make for a very dangerous combination.
Nobody this guy almost hit said they were hanging out on the back of a hill. I know I wasn't, that's as dumb as jumping in high traffic areas.
