5 Things: Jason Phelan Bomb Drop.

Most of you must have seen the latest issue and Wethepeople rider, Jason Phelan’s Bomb Drop on the cover by now. The last time Jason did a Bomb Drop was at the BSD/NIKE UNIT 23 Jam back in April 2011, which unfortunately didn’t go too well at all. Since then, the last thing on Jason’s mind was doing one of them again! But sometimes you have to conquer your fears. We asked Jason, what the hell was going through his head during that crazy Bomb Drop he did in Malaga…

“Bear in mind that the worst crash I ever had was from Bomb Drop. It messed my head up for a few months and I couldn’t remember a lot of stuff a few weeks after the crash, i.e. filming the Nike Pool trailers. So I always felt like I wanted to redeem myself and now I couldn’t be happier and I don’t think I ever need to do a Bomb Drop again! You could imagine what was going through my head at the time…”

“Holy shit imaging how good this is going to feel if I land it.”

“How bad is this crash going to be if it happens and is it worth it?”

“Look at how nervous the guys are for me while setting up, they’re shaking more than me.”

“I climb up and all I’m thinking of while standing over looking at the small drop is FUCK IT!! So I jumped.”

“Oh my fucking god, yes yes yes is all that was going through my head while rolling away”

“Is it worth it you may ask? Too bloody right there’s no better feeling the conquering you fears and landing something that scares the living shit out of you!”

If you haven’t seen it in action yet, then be sure to check out the video of it along with the rest of their trip in Malaga.
