Sometimes you’ve just gotta send it.
My dad used to always say “Trying is lying”.. and then he’d grab a pen or something that was close by and say “TRY to pick this up… you don’t TRY to pick it up, you do it”.
I found this old clip I took a few years ago of some guy I met at a festival… he absolutely did a full send off of this rope swing with no pre-checking the water… and unfortunately got a little wrapped up in the rope. Luckily it wasn’t fatal (which is why I can post this with no guilt) but he did find out that the water was only a few feet deep so luckily he landed on his back!
Enjoy… and, don’t forget to try that thing you’ve been too chicken to try. You may end up with a little bruise but it’ll probably make for some great footage.
