I remember watching a couple of Brazilians trying this off of the twelve or thirteen foot log/stump at Mammoth. They pretty much exploded like this guys first tries. Somehow Danny Megaskills makes it look like a three stair. I don't quite see him trying up this high though. He knows the limits of flow. And back pain.

I thought of the exact same thing, NORBA Nationals. That was the year I showed up without any accommodations, thinking I could crash with Joey. He was like, "yeah, sorry dude, I'm getting laid tonight." So I slept in the back of his truck in the condo parking lot like a hobo. Also, I thought I could just show up and compete in trials, and NORBA was like, "yeah, sorry dude, registration closed like a month ago". Oh, and JJ Gregorovich was there, and I was like, "hey, JJ, what's up man!" and he was like, "yeah, sorry dude, don't talk to me."
All in all, that was an awesome trip.

And I had met Joeys date the week before and tried to get her to go with ME to Mammoth. Damn. One of many to get away.

what's the point doing this?

I'm sure it doesn't add a ton of cushioning and the drop's still super impressive, but landing on a cushioned mat seems like cheating since absorbing the hit is 90% of the challenge.

I agree. Why not go higher with more padding?

haha it's cool he did it but man can you imagine having to say that you got a world record for doing a drop to flat?
