Welcome, skatesailor. You're right about the excitement cutouts. It can sometimes be compared to climbing Mt. Everest. You don't know what's coming next.
THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT.
If you haven't found it yet, I've written a few hints about trapouts here on the forum. They can be fun, too. Especially when you don't get back to it in time and that little box 18 feet in the air weighs 75 lb. and the only access is a flimsy ladder.
