That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t know what he’s doing, as Andy just came off a six week Nitro Circus Live Tour, where he was essentially sending it over a 50-foot Big Air-style jump on a daily basis.

He goes on to explain, “I’m not much of a vert rider and there’s a 27 foot quarter pipe after the jump…and that’s my worry.
