 100% commitment to every feature. 100% blind take-offs. 100% gnarly. Tap your breaks and we'll craft your eulogy...

 Honestly, a video of the build would probably be more impressive than the ride.

 Not sure what's most amazing, the way he makes riding unforgiving stuff easy or the masterpiece of trail art he built.

 I was listening to this and Jawbreaker the other day thinking; if I had a segment in a movie, I'd probably pick one of those two! Great work Scott and great riding too. More of this stuff in future. Perfect!!!!

 So many memories came to my mind when I heard the first riff! Ah, well, that was when we were young... but I'm still, at heart! Smile
  • 2 0
 @cool3: to feel young at heart is not an easy thing to do....I know a lot of people that have "quit" at the age of 40. So stay strong and keep this approach my friend. I will try to translate a famous Greek rock song for you " ....we shall never die ...motherf@cker undertaker..."
  • 1 0
 @TZAK: Thanks! BTW, I absolutely love Greece. Been there when I was 15 and came back (to Crete) in 2006 and 2016. This is what paradise looks like to me. I can't wait to go back there. Big Grin

 Hell yeah lads that was friggin rad! @scottsecco hinted at it in October 2016 in the fire drop photo comments and now it's here! I just want to build some features now!

 @juicebanger Glad to hear you're inspired! Yeah, this project took ages for us to shoot. I ended up crashing a drone into a tree during the making of it... not my best work.
  • 2 0
 @scottsecco: video or it didn't happen
  • 5 0
 @Waldon83: haha oh buddy, I should put together a drone crash reel. Only bad thing is they tend to stop recording and not save the shot in the event of a super hard hit. Not that I've done that multiple times or anything.
  • 1 0
 @scottsecco: out of curiosity, what drone(s) do you film with Scott?
  • 3 0
 Hey @juicebanger, these days I'm rocking a Phantom 4 Pro! We actually shot this video ages ago though, and I used the Phantom 3 Pro and a 3DR Solo with a GoPro attached (and I just de-fished the shots in post).

 @scottsecco: that's pretty rad...although shame on you for not sharing earlier! Jk cheers man great job as always

 Insane amount of work must have gone into that trail! So cool to see someone able to match their riding talent with equal trail building talent. Good work Dylan, scott and bryce!

 That video makes me want to fire up my MS261 and go out and build some more features. Well done to all involved in that project. You all invested ton of time into that. Thanks for sharing.

 This maybe just be me....BUT - Why would they use a thumbnail thats not a scene in the video?
Spent the whole vid looking forward to him launching over that bonfire and it never happened. Managing expectations...!!?

Sick video otherwise. Big gaps and smooth riding and a good soundtrack. Fine work.

 Dang, trail building with a Husky 576? Burly
  • 2 0
 Not a 576 its a 395 so bigger i love it tho more power allows me to rip boards a little more before sharpening the chains. Thats my small 24" bar in the pictures with the sprocket size i found it isnt optimal for ripping i typically run a 33" once you use em long enough the weight isnt bad. Good workout haha

 that,s Fraser Valley stuff , not NS .

 @cheetamike: What Valley area? Bear?
  • 8 0
 @rrolly: close but not quite...but we shouldn't be blasting out the location of cool trails like this anyways, unless we want to bring undue attention to them.

Idk if you remember the chainsaw massacre on Cypress, but bad things happen when the gnar gets overexposed, especially wooden gnar.

 @rrolly: Out of respect for Porkchop I will not disclose it,s were abouts

 @maxwellington: got it - but it sucks that even the possibility of some vindictive person out there restricts others' freedom. I find in general the people up here in the valley and on the Shore get along quite well.
