Building and Riding the Backyard Whale Tail

    The whale tail has been in the works for a while, but I haven't had the chance to build it until now. A lot of things needed to be in place, like the landing, a better roll-in, that kicker, not to mention a working Kevin Jump with a wood berm after it. Thanks to Kevin, Brian, and Alexander for helping out on this build. They all have FIchannel channels:
    Berm Peak Merch
    Kevin (Steadyspin)
    Brian (BKXC)
    Alexander (Singletrack Sampler)

    I got put on probation for building 2 miles of trails on someone else's land. I dont care to much about the probation because it is illegal what I am mad about is that the husband actualy liked it but his wife threatened divorce If he didnt decided to press charges and tear down 4 years of hard work l. Or so I thought. in the end he didnt actualy take much down telling his wife that he's getting old and it was to much work. so after I was off probation we kept if touch and he let me ride whenever I wanted.

    You should build a triple roller
    It’ll make you gain so much speed and then you coul place a huge feature or massive jump afterward

    HI Seth you have completely inspired us at home... I have a 12 year old daughter who loves this stuff, I must say I love it too. We are building our own course on our property... which is so cool (beginner level though, have to start some where)... With regards to the whale tail is there any specific height to curve ratio that you could help us with we just want to build a lower down version .... Love your stuff keep it coming!!!

    Seth. Thank you for all these awesome videos. I went back and have watched all the Berm Peak videos in order and the progression is awesome and fun to watch! Just a tip from a former engineer, try compacting the soil in layers at a time (12-18") it will result in a much more solid base in the near term as opposed to loading 3' of dirt and compacting just the top. You will have much less settling issues! Love the channel and thanks for sharing all that you do my friend! Keep them coming!

    Since I’m in quarantine I can’t really go anywhere but luckily there’s some “mountain bike trails” in a park behind my house but there’s no features it’s all technical, but there’s a couple parts where it’s wide path and you can get speed so my project for quarantine with my scrap wood is to make a jump for it and a landing.
    Jk I’m stuck and I can’t mountain bike and I wish I could do that project but I can’t and it sucks 😢
