These crashes at the Hahnenkamm Downhill in Austria will make you cringe. These guys and girls are truly insane. They are defying death with every grip of their edges, and putting everything on the line..and when it goes wrong, it ain’t pretty.
Sometimes I post real estate stuff, sometimes I post about things I love. Mostly, I just want to test how a video looks on my new site design. Regardless, here’s to El Niño doing his thang…
Procrastinating before posting this week’s Maximum Overbid, and putting together the webpage for my awesome new listing in Glen Park @1793 Sanchez, I stumbled across this video:
SF Hipsters on your fixies take note…this girl will crush your skills, and darnit if all you guys didn’t just fall in love a little.
To think, I didn’t even have to pay these guys to do this. Must be the high altitude and thin air at Alta Ski Area making these jokesters think like Top Producers:
Sometimes we all feel like this in this crazy real estate market.
Follow up…they found The Goods (albeit a bit dirty and not blower)!

The entire Bay Area is teeming with ski fever. More ski racks are showing up on cars, fleece and Gore-tex wear is on the rise, and non-stop chatter about ski leases is everywhere. But wait! Perhaps you should think more along the lines of an Ocean Beach ski lease.
With a new swell on the way, and increased crowds out at Ocean Beach here in San Francisco, perhaps this will get your ski fix on, and wave count up?
“Me and my friend, we just started to have hecka fun…”
“The last wave that I caught…it was SO huge…it was like, like 10-15 feet!”
Hats off to the San Francisco locals that made this happen. Good stuff to warm your soul, and remind ourselves of the great people that live in our area. Chasing waves is certainly better for our youth than being chased by gang violence.
Put this on my list of things I would love to do, and never will.
Makes all of us “hard core” (I use that term very loosely) Tahoe skiers look like a bunch of pansies, doesn’t it.
