Building and Riding the Backyard Whale Tail

Note: This video was not filmed yesterday! We're in isolation right now on Berm Peak. Nobody comes and goes except for the grocery store or doctor. To see how we're passing the time, check out my instagram stories sethsbikehacks
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 RSclub channels:
Berm Peak Merch
Kevin (Steadyspin)
Brian (BKXC)
Alexander (Singletrack Sampler)
