BACKSTORY: TRAIL LINE NAMES

When it comes to trails, its pretty much a given that the lines and jumps you and your crew build will have to be named in one way or another. Needless to say, this makes for some rather interesting and unique names. Think “Dip Buzz”, “Sloth Hawk” and “Whammo” to name only a few.

With that said… I thought it would be interesting to dig deeper (no pun intended) and find out how some of these names came about.

We spoke to John Skvarla from Keyko Trails, Chris Janis from Catty Woods, Clint Reynolds from Eastside, Cody Diggs from Scituate, Jeremy Muller from La Source, Jay Lonergan from POSH, Anthony Napolitan from Wetlands and Mark Potoczny from Hazelwood to get the backstory on how some lines/jumps at their respective trails got their names.

*Please note – this is only a small portion of interesting names and respected trails out there.

PHOTOGALLERY: JONNY CLARKE / EASTSIDE TRAILS

Jonny Clarke (aka- resident Eastside Trails photographer) provides a glimpse into the radness and sadness of these gnarly trails in Austin, TX. Lots of hard work, dedicated locals, great sessions, but also epic flooding (hence the sadness part).

Click below for the gallery and shoutout to Jonny for putting this together. Be sure to check out his site for more of his work.
