 Hey guys, remember fun? Before all the serious races, massive jumps, people getting busted up and all the hits of adrenaline, before we all got too serious and stopped enjoying riding because we weren't winning enough, pinning enough or going big enough? Remember that? Because I forgot.

Thanks for the reminder guys

 Such a feel good edit, loved it

 This looks fun! I don't know anything about snowboarding, but are they just using regular snowboards? I'd assume this would trash up the board a bit more than snow would...am I right?

I want to try this!
  • + 21
 That might be what I'm doing this winter with the amount of snow on the hills at the moment.

 absolutely made my monday! all just about fun, combined with that music... this day has become a better day Big Grin

 @fr3err1d3r

It's kinda like snowboarding on icey hardpack snow. And yes they were normal snowboards that are now thrashed. Would take some love to make nice again. Brett was on an older Burton Custom and his brother was on a Bataleon.

 id like to see what the bottom of those boards is like
  • + 5
 For those who have never tried ripping a gravel pit on a snowboard or skis...it is a blast...just a tip, keep out of the way of the guy above you cause he'll send rocks down an chip your tooth if you're not careful! Great edit, loved the music!

 @ArmyFork Seriously the best comment I've read in a long time
  • + 15
 when tippie laughs, we all laugh
  • + 1
 I agree with kona-stinky-trek, ArmyFork, that was inspirational, I forgot 'bout having fun too. Thanks for the reminder.
  • + 3
 that put the biggest smile on my face!
  • + 3
 Had the biggest grin on my face by the end of this video, I was havin a crap day and it doesn't feel so crap anymore, loved this video.

 I think Tippie brothers, Aggy and Silvia deserve the love. Made my week
  • + 4
 The brothers Tippie, Aggie, and good 'ol Fleetwood Mac. Can't go wrong there, such a solid edit!

 Only a brother would slap a scrape like that.
  • + 12
 Look up the definition of 'crazy' in the dictionary and it will say 'see -Tippie"!
  • + 39
 I wonder what kind of wax they use...
  • + 32
 Tippie's laugh is infectious.
  • + 18
 Only a brother could get AWAY with slapping a scrape like that! Big Grin
  • + 15
 "Does this hurt?"

*SLAP*

"DUDE! I'M TELLING MOOOOOOOMMM..."

 this, ladies and gentlemen, is what staying young and having fun looks like

 Fleetwood Mac remix thing worked really well! Smile
[Reply]
  • + 30
 Brett Tippie, you are such a boss.
  • + 3
 So what wax is best for dirt-boarding?
[Reply]
  • + 14
 Tippie kindly showed a few of us that spot a few years ago but we all just straight lined it. The fear was too strong to try and turn. It's fecking steep! Also props for putting together a vid with music that doesn't totally suck!
[Reply]
  • + 13
 I see "Tippie" on the title and I think: it must be something crazy for sure...
[Reply]
  • + 11
 Who else is going to be looking for a gravel pit tomorrow??? That looked like so much fun!
  • + 3
 this vid couldn't have come at a better time. Was out for a walk with the wife today and found a massive mountain of dirt at a housing development. Just a few piles of dirt...and now this has me more motivated to go ride it before it's gone!
  • + 1
 I live super close to a 100 ft sand pile. I had never even thought about it.... till now hehe

 Best video I'v seen in a while! Laughter was the one of the best parts! Topped it off to show how much fun there having. I love seeing people of all ages enjoying the sport and loving and laughing like they were! Now that is what you want for motivation to ride! Nothing better then being pumped to have fun! ALSO! Some reaallyyy talented riding in both areas there, on bikes and snow boards! Don't imagine it's easy to get down those hills!! Faved this one for sure! Great video in every way!
[Reply]

 huge smile on my face the whole time. i swear ive seen tippie doing this before, years and years ago almost before mountainbiking. in a snowboard movie. can anyone help me out on which one, or if im right or wrong. tippie your my hero
  • + 14
 ok I can tell you! (I'm his wife). It was in Burton's 1994 Shadrach Meshack Abednigo! Same gravel pits, 18 years ago! Here's the link. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKNRYb2Vx0M
  • + 3
 hahah Tippie riding a race board with ski boots! I miss the days seeing Brett ripping a board.
  • + 3
 thanks and congrats on the wedding this summer, i was in whistler then too Smile i used to have that movie and watched it everyday till the tape got old and wrecked
[Reply]
  • + 5
 That opening scene totally screwed with my sense of scale - it looked like a couple of tire tracks going from left to right across the screen and then tiny 2" high people come by on snowboards.
Also, I've never appreciated that song that much before. This video made it awesome!
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Now THAT was a great way to start a Monday. Tippie's laugh is so infectious. Ride a chair or two with him in the summer, and see if you can make it to the top without nearly peeing yourself.
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Whole video is absolutely cool. Serious shredding, a funny crash and a nice landscape. Then when you think it can't be much better, Tippi starts laughing and this is just a hell of fun.

 Bout time someone was just all about the fun factor! Love it. This is how every day should be. Who cares how good someone is at a sport...having a massive smile on your face is what makes it all worth while.
[Reply]

 Amazing edit, the vibe's so good and they are having so much fun it's impossible not to enjoy it. Tippie is absolutely nuts though, but talk about skills and strength to ride that board there!
[Reply]

 Epic, this just brought me back to those beautifully large Namibian dunes, me my dad, quad, Toyota Hilux, rope and a large piece cardboard shaped like a sled! Never pissed myself laughing as much as that day! Awesome vid, I'm calling in sick tomorrow and gonna shred that lush mud!
[Reply]
  • + 2
 As soon as the video started,I knew that it had to be Silvia! Great video,with great lesson that Mountain biking isn't all about the competition - it is about having fun and going to bed with a smile on our faces at the end of the day! One love.

 Hey, Brett, you probably ought to be doing more riding and filming than being on the mike. Your mike antics are great, but I want to see more footage of you shredding. My two cents, that all. Great video.
