Thinking back it must have been 2004 when I received my Mad-Choss crash pad. In 2005 I was really syked my douchedom had slowed but only temporally (*more on that later). One day at work (*Nicros) a guy named Josh Helke came in and showed me some Chalk-Pots and Crash pads he was doing. I thought it was cool and all the cool kids had it so I need to be cool. I asked josh to make me something special... Something that fit me..
PINK AND BLACK CRASH PAD! MATCHING CHALK POT! MATCHING CHALK BAG!
I WAS SO FLY!
Not. But his stuff was.
I believe I own the 3rd Organic 1/2 pad ever made and the 6th Organic Crash Pad.. This pad is famous like wHOA, Daniel Woods fell on it once... maybe even twice.. I think Brian Had sex on it, then I slept on it not knowing that disgusting fact..
Here is some information you need to know,
Full Pad- I have used this pad more than any other PAD I own. I climbed the Cave Traverse for the first time with only this pad and my half pad. Out of the 2 plastic buckles it has 1 has broken and it finally broke 2 years ago because I closed my tailgate on it. This one had awesome velcro so you could strap the half pad onto it (*Organic now uses a better metal buckle instead of Velcro). I climbed my first v7,v8, v9, v10, and v11 Over this guy.. The foam finally "flattened" out last year. I am now making plans to have it DE-stuffed and turned into a rug.
Half Pad- The half pad has one hole, the hole is from a rodent that decided soy foam was tasty. I still use this half pad anytime I climb. The foam is not flat.. For real, feels like brand new... It has not taken as many falls but you would thin it would flatten out.. nope. still good.
This pad may not be as nice as the newer organics but the foam is bomb the design is sick and the colors as cute... I think that is why Organic is on top..
