Since we setup the dangle bar over the miniramp a few weeks ago, I've been very surprised the progression of hybrid skate and kiting moves I'm seeing Henry explore. We finally just decided to have one board fully-strapped and the other the usual skateboard. I honestly thought this dangle-skate thing-would be a blip on his skate attention span, but the bag o' tricks just keeps growing and I'm continually surprised; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs5o5k3ASjQ

Sticking landings now. Appears to be very good gateway to kiting;

That looks like fun. We built a half pipe under a ropeswing when we were kids. Had a lot of fun on it, although our engineering was not that great. HaHa. This looks like a blast.

Roger-that. Groms always welcome. Gotta new zip support line for the older skate bros too. There's been some new wall rides, grabs, and crazy board slide>smith grind>50/50 combos that just aren't possible without dangle approach. It appears that I may have already posted this, but here's the latest; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHqDrWCIQZQ

Dangle update; Henry's now 12 years old and pushing-the-limits of the ceiling with a plywood extension off the 3' mini ramp. I'd post pics, but for whatever reason, attachment isn't working.

I need to configure another dropline from the rafters with a beefcake swivel. For the bar, we are currently using a swivel from the front lines of Slingshot bar. ...I'm watching Henry going larger and larger, and just need to build more safety into the dangle. Ideas? Does anyone have an extra swivel that I could use as a backup, to run another line to the bar?
Thanks.

If anyone wants to see it in action, I can open the door to the shop and watch from outside.
