The 2011 Alabama Mountain Games (NAWF) went great. This festival brings great music, great people and awesome sports like Mt. Biking Kayaking Disc Golf Stand UP Paddle Boarding and more all together.

|I LOVE THE WAVE SPORT PROJECT X!!! It is truly amazing!!|
Mt. Chaos was an ongoing tradition at NAWF, and was brought back this year to the AMG’s. It’s a 30 foot ramp built out of Assembly line style rollers into a kicker……capable of throwing you for kick-flips, freewheels, or just a big ol’ stomp. Once you get the taste of Mt.Chaos you just can’t stop!
Stand Up Paddle Boarding is becoming more and more popular on the river, and whenever I get the chance I love to SUP downstream. There was also a SUP head to head race held at the AMG’s. We had heats of five in the men’s competition with first place continuing to the finals. I placed 1st in my first heat of 5, and 2nd in my second heat. So it was down to me and Mike T for the final finals, and it was indeed a great race, however Mike took the victory home, and I was in 2nd. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos from the event
However here are a few photos from Powell Falls (both left and right of the island) on the Locust Fork of the Warrior River:
The Mountain Bike trail and free-ride obstacles have been a big highlight of AMG and of my experience there. The Cross Country Trail is no joke, equipped with big jumps, wall rides, banked turns, tight paths, and even a Creek Jump that makes it all worth it. Along with the trail there are a few free-ride jumps; including a few blind horizon line jumps (big) and new this year a big step up.
Here are a few photos of some MTB action
