And what's "London Jump"?

You should probably just reenact "The Hangover" that way you can retrace your steps and possibly fall in love with the hooker/stripper you married last night, who you will with time fall in love with. Or maybe you left your best friend on a rooftop filled with wolves and one Chupacabra

They have stopped production, still being sold obviously just they are never making anymore. Kswiss is homo, i want my SI-18's and they stopped producing them also.

Consumer Whores / Re: WFPF shoe...looks decent
« on: May 04, 2010, 08:21:35 PM »
I would be interested in buying these once a few people try these suckers out. I trust WFPF in putting out a good shoe, I currently wear K-swiss Si-18's and love em but unfortunately Kswiss stopped production a little while back. Used to wear 5.10 but idk, too clunky, not enough feel, horrible on rails (racked myself a few times until i decided to retire them)

Too the cushioning statement: you can have thick foam that is very soft and gives very easily, take the SI-18's the fore foot has a decent amount of cushioning, but it's quite soft so it allows you to feel maybe a rail or a ledge you are standing on. Also when you break a shoe in the cushioning compacts more.

Never been to Hawaii before in general, As for where I will be staying it's some resort right on Kaanapali beach, or Kaanapali, which ever makes more sense.

OOOO love the name drop there!! haha but yeah I'm really trying to find a good shoe that isn't $90+ that also isn't made specifically for parkour. I find that those shoes do really well on certain materials and horrible on others. **cough cough** 5.10
just was really intrigued by em and i currently don't have money to go try em out.

So I was at Sports authority the other day and I these shoes ( http://tinyurl.com/ydg9nng ) and they seem really nice. They have the same look as the Nike Darts. Ontop of this all I guess if you pay like $10 more you can get some plan that allows you to get a free pair if you trash them to hell in the first year. Which basically means a free pair of shoes haha.

well my question was Anyone try these?? i've looked and nobody seems to have posted anything on em and the grip seemed really nice on the metal ladder nearby (actually stuck)

Injuries - Discussion / Jumpers Knee (Suggestions encouraged)
« on: December 22, 2009, 11:49:47 PM »
So for the past 5 months i have been dealing with every traceurs favorite.... knee tendonitis. This went off and on but for the past month it has been non stop and although it doesn't bother me that much while i'm training (since i do a 5 minute leg stretch) after is always the worst. Thus i have had enough and am taking at least a month off from training since it is winter and ice and snow are on every surface. but this is what i am going to be doing.

1 week of NO physical activity at all. except hand balancing or the occasional pushups

2 weeks of light weights (slow reps, perfect form)

and after that it the weight would be increased each week.

now i really have to take this time off from training because tendonitis has really started to piss me off. I am very susceptible to it because i have bowed legs (thanks dad :/ ) so i would really want to make sure this works.

SO ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON TYPES OF WEIGHT LIFTING I MUST DO?? ANY SUGGESTIONS AT ALL ARE WELCOME

OK so if you never plan to do anything on metal the Prospirits are ok. HOWEVER... i trained in them for 2 hours and rubber has shredded up.. I suggest NIKE Darts $40 they have grip on EVERYTHING.. not amazing grip but grip on everything. which is more than 80% of shoes can say
