    THIRTIES
  • 2010
    Age 35
    On 2 March 2010, Enslow managed a leap between ramps of, easily beating Bubba Blackwell's previous world record of set in Las Vegas in 1999.
    More Details Hide Details The stunt took place at Barangaroo, on Sydney Harbour and is measured in feet because the previous records have been set in the United States. The death-defying stunt was seen by some as recreating an unforgettable Harley-Davidson benchmark set by Evel Knievel in 1975. However, the bike that Enslow rode was highly modified, and far exceeded the capabilities of any bike ever ridden by Knievel. As Enslow got older, he looked for other business to branch into to be able to make a living with less risks involved. A few years back, he opened Headquarters Tattoo Parlor and hired many of his friends who were tattoo artists as well as learning to tattoo himself. Beside offering tattoos and piercings, they also sell DVDs featuring Enslow's riding, his signature series of shoes and other products. He has also purchased several properties and is planning to get into the real estate business. Enslow also owns a custom built motorcycle built by Matt Hotch from Hot Match Custom Cycles.
  • 2007
    Age 32
    In 2007, Enslow appeared in the Discovery series Stunt Junkies where he jumped a Convair 880 passenger jet, a total distance close to.
    More Details Hide Details After successfully jumping the plane, Enslow jumped it again, later being quoted as saying, "When would I get another chance to jump an airplane that big?" Fleshwound Films once again held a record event in 2008 where several records were broken. Enslow was able to participate and set a new personal best with a jump of. However, this was far from close to breaking the record since it had been bettered by both Robbie Maddison and Ryan Capes. Nevertheless, Enslow commented, "I am stoked. I may not have claimed the world record but I am really happy with my result. That is the best I have jumped." Enslow also says he no longer has any plans to try to break the overall record since the stakes are just too high, with the current record being set at set by Robbie Maddison.
  • TWENTIES
  • 2004
    Age 29
    Enslow healed up and continued to shoot several films for Fleshwound Films and other companies and going for big jumps as well as being a featured rider on the Crusty Demons World Tour. In 2004, he released his second film named simply Seth II which showcased Enslow riding with his friends on several different locations and also his second record attempt.
    More Details Hide Details The attempt was held at what riders usually called Manny's Yard, a location with several big jumps, the biggest measuring. The venue was long from ideal and had a complicated runup to the ramp. This meant that as the ramp was pulled back further and further, Enslow struggled to get the speed he needed in order to clear the gap. This led to Enslow coming up short of the landing ramp and sending him flying through the air resulting in a broken leg and a concussion. In 2006, Fleshwound Films organized 'The Night of Records Down Under' in Australia, an event which led to six new records being set in different categories in front of an audience of 22,000 people. Enslow was originally supposed to attempt to break the 250cc record, but had to back out after injuring himself at a practice session. Enslow then gave up his spot to his old friend Larry Linkogle who broke the record with a jump (which was also the overall record for a few hours before being broken by Trigger Gumm with a jump).
  • 2000
    Age 25
    This was all featured in his first own film release Seth - The Hard Way released in 2000.

  • 1999
    Age 24
    In 1999, Enslow made his first attempt to break the overall record at fellow motocross rider Mike Cinqmars' property with a ramp designed by Johnny Airtime of Air Time Association.
    More Details Hide Details Enslow was riding a customized Service Honda, which is basically a Honda 250 dirt bike with a 500cc two stroke engine. Enslow started jumping jumps and gradually pulled the ramp back, finishing with a jump before calling it a day due to increasing winds. The next day, the wind was still blowing but it was a tailwind and would not risk pushing Enslow sideways. So, jumping continued with the first jump to be around. However, the tail wind was stronger than anticipated and pushed Enslow beyond his landing ramp where he traveled. The flat landing caused Enslow to hit his head on the handlebars which crushed his skull above his right eye. Enslow fell off his bike and paramedics rushed to his aid. An emergency helicopter lifted him to a nearby hospital where the doctors cut him ear to ear, pulled his forehead down and inserted two titanium plates to replace the crushed part of his cranium.
    In 1999, he broke Robbie Knievel's (son of Evel Knievel) record for most motorcycle jumps.
    More Details Hide Details However, Enslow's triple clamps broke, which disconnected his front end from the frame, resulting in Enslow diving head first into the asphalt. But Enslow was soon on his feet and even signing autographs before leaving the venue.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1993
    Age 18
    When he was sixteen, he bought his first dirtbike and started to race as an amateur in New York and Florida. In 1993, after graduating from Wellsboro High School in Pennsylvania, he moved to California.
    More Details Hide Details It was there that he met up with Dana Nicholson who had just founded Fleshwound Films with fellow filmmakers Jon and Cami Freeman. In 1994, they released their first film Crusty Demons of Dirt showcasing the underground motocross movement out in the deserts and badlands in the United States. The film gave Enslow notoriety for overjumping a sand dune and crashing hard. The distance he traveled was never measured but it is speculated to be around. The movie quickly spawned a sequel and, once again, Enslow made an impact by coming up short on a jump and landing on supercross racer Jeremy McGrath's practice bike. This notoriety made Enslow one of the first bike riders to receive sponsors without having a racing career. Enslow, who by this time was making a living riding bikes, decided to break the world record of set by Doug Danger. He started practicing by jumping ramp jumps over kegs of beer, cars, motorcycle and other big objects at different events.
