Lonely Island Ft. Matt Hunter: Madeira, Portugal is where the legend Matt Hunter sent it around every corner of the beautiful island on his Specialized Enduro while myself and Etienne Van Rensburg chased him for five days, shooting what we could in order to make a short film for the Madeira Film Festival. If you are a fan of mountain biking or even just mountains, Madeira is definitely a place you should consider visiting!

The Art of Adventure - Chapter 3: Joey Schusler's Time to Reflect: Adventures are often glorified as wild missions to exotic places, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. The Colorado River and its surrounding terrain is a natural wonder not far from Joey’s house and the perfect place to escape on a solo, multi-day bike rafting trip. There’s no better way to step back from the whirlwind of daily life than by sleeping under the stars.

Ty Morrow - Éclat: Combining his signature style, power, and burliness in one banger of a video part, it’s fair to say no one else does it quite like Ty.

Dak Roche - Leftovers: Dak stays in the streets daily, everyday looking for something new. He stacked up some heavy clips for the DVD already but here's a taste of what didn't make it.

Swell - A Sailing Surfer's Voyage of Awakening: Embarking on a life of freedom and exploration that most only dream about, Liz Clark set sail for the South Pacific as captain of her 40-foot sailboat, Swell. More than 12 years and 20,000 miles later, she’s still out there.

The Refuge: For hundreds of generations, the Gwich’in people of Alaska and northern Canada have depended on the caribou that migrate through the Arctic Refuge. With their traditional culture now threatened by oil extraction and climate change, two Gwich’in women are continuing a decades-long fight to protect their land and future. The Arctic Refuge is an important symbol of the wild, and a cornerstone of the hope and peace of mind that can only be found in connecting with nature. It is a truly special home to lands and wildlife vital for the subsistence way of life of Alaska Native communities; and it serves a vital role as a remaining link with the unspoiled natural world and a source of hope for future generations, even for those who may never set foot there. The Gwich'in people have thrived in villages along the migration path of the Porcupine Caribou Herd since time immemorial, and consider the Coastal Plain where calves are born sacred.

The Eternal Beauty Of Snowboarding: A snowboard photographer for almost 10 years, I have been filming everything I take a picture of (and much more) for the past four years. I am now putting together a supercut style edit, taking you behind the scenes of snowboard movie making, as well as raising existential questions such as: "what are we doing here?!" In the style of a philosophy exam, the movie will try to answer the question: "Is there anything truly beautiful in what we do, and what we are - pro snowboarders?''

Nyjah Huston - Fade to Black: A classic.

Nyjah Huston's - OMFG: What happens when you ask Nyjah if he has any footage laying around? You get 4 minutes you won't soon forget.

Nyjah Huston - 'Til Death: Perhaps the best rail part ever.

 I didn t know there was this much green in the whole galaxy... Lina Skoglund the master showing how to shred berms in Downhillbanan re.

 The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding..... f*cking priceless. LOL. bros. Also, I could watch Matt Hunter rip trails all damn day.

 has anyone else been searching for ellemisiura..???

 Nyjah is the sickest and most technical rail/ledges later I have EVER seen. The kid just has an innate ability to get his board locked on to a rail. Just an amazing athlete. That was fun to watch. Although I’m not a big fan of the blood????

 @JeffWeed - I link to your videos every time I try to tell my friends or family elsewhere about what a special little gem we have here in our backyard. Thanks for making these available!

 @g-42: you have weed in your back yard? Don’t tell the Feds!

 Killer edit once again Jeff! I love that you showed that you don't nail every jump to manual to turn you attempt. I still think you're inhuman, but it's good to remember that some of these videos take more than one attempt.

 A series with you, Danny Mac and Matt Hunter would be so awesome

 Til death - cool video, but I'd say it's in bad taste to glorify a guy laying on the ground bleeding from his head after a crash not wearing a helmet. It's 2018, wear a damn helmet! People get seriously injured or die from this kinda stuff, so maybe pro riders and sponsors should be promoting helmets. A guy in my small town died after hitting his head skateboarding not wearing a helmet. Nobody is too good for a helmet, it happens
  • + 1
 Nah that wouldn't be cool. Huge Nike and Monster logos on your clothing though, totally legit.

 "Helmets just aren't my style" Translation - I haven't outgrown my adolescent need for approval from others in regards to appearance and style.

 I stopped watching the Ty Morrow vid for the same reason. Just freaks me out.

 @Grunk: hit the nail...

 To each their own, if the guy doesn't want to wear a helmet when he skates in the street its his decision. It's not his responsibility to make sure other people's kids wear helmets. I grew up in Encinitas CA, a skate mecca in the 90's and 00's, and the last thing I ever wanted was to wear a helmet. How can you expect to hang with the cool kids in one of those! My mom knew this and occasionally patrolled some spots we used to hang out at to check I had it on. I didn't t want to wear a helmet but I did, and I was still accepted by my peers. You can't blame the athlete, it's up to parents to take responsibility for their own kids! I've always had a hard time watching hard falls but it's a part of all sports of this nature. Skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, bmx, mtb, etc... There are consequences and risks to all of it. The amount of risk he wants to take and how he wants to take it is his decision. I for one thought that part was epic with some of the heaviest rail tricks ever thrown down. My hat is off to Mr. Huston...
  • + 7
 @millsr4: just figured maybe since he is getting paid by sponsors, and the sponsors are selling a lot of their shit to kids who look up to these pro athletes...maybe get him to wear a helmet, then all the kids say "well Nyjah Huston wears a helmet, I should wear one too". Or if that is too good-hearted for some people out there, then maybe just keep the customers alive? Not looking for an arguement, but set a good example for your fans and followers, if they still choose to ride without a helmet then oh well

 @sdaly: Sorry but if your coming to the PB comment section talking shit about one of the videos, your looking for an argument lol. Sponsors(AKA corporations) only care about advertising and making money, good luck with that... I've seen comments of this nature several times on Movies For Your Monday about skateboard and bmx vids and it's getting old. Quit hating on a guy who is doing some stuff very few can and enjoy his art. He could be butt naked for all I care if he is throwing down tricks like that!

 I nominate Jeff Kendall-Weed as the Best All Around Mountain Biker.

 Great, but stop pimping out our trails.......

 Weed grin guaranteed.

 @pedaldragger: it's an official, sanctioned trail in an official, sanctioned trail system. We're getting some visitors, which is good for our economy (especially the bike centered part). How is Jeff making this look like a fun place to ride creating a problem? I mean, other than making me feel I adequate, I don't see the issue here.

I ride A-Dog and the other south side trails all the time, and I have yet to see real congestion (yep, parking can be tight, but the crowds sure than out on the hill). The trails hold up well, thanks to being well built and well maintained (yay WMBC and volunteers). What am I missing that's causing you heartburn?

 @g-42: If he put in time, maybe....
I agree that visitor-ship is good, it just tough to watch these trails become mainstream and over ridden, especially in poor conditions. Visitors often don't take that into consideration, they came up, so they are going to ride regardless. We need economy, true, but has JKW donated to WMBC? or put in some sweat time? But he is using the trails to further is own personal following. Just saying, I would be nice to see a little pay to play etc. I'm sure the Jeff is a good guy.

 For me, nothing beats those sloppy British rut slapping videos the Dudes Of Hazard make. Absolute shred fest!
  • + 1
 Agreed, everyone in comments is going on about this Jeff Kendall Weed dude doing wheelies in his nice clean kit on a groomed flow trail and all I want to see is Joe Barnes hammering it in a deep dirty rut.
  • + 3
 How can u bitch about pipe lines and oil drilling and get into a 6000 pound truck to go shopping! You dont want oil drilling and more pipe lines then take the bus or ride a bike! Or your a hypocrite causing the problems and then bitching about it.
  • + 5
 Nyjah Houston is one of those dudes who is good at anything he does. He just happened to pick skateboarding and has, quite honestly, probably perfected it.
  • + 5
 The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding is totally worth watching. Starts as a bit childish but turns in to a great story.

 jeff kendall-weed riding and jumping better than most but using a trail bike and no full face lid instaed off a full on dh bike and full face lid. just shows how overbiked most people are. epic riding i am very envious of your bike handling skills.

 Still don't understand the aversion to wearing a helmet. Those guys are going to be vegetables by 40...

 If you think snowboarding is fun-- try mountain biking!!
  • + 3
 Just yeserday the mrs. and I were debating about which one was more fun. We concluded that we have had way more mountain-bike induced ridicuous smiles over the years but that nothing beats snowboarding on a perfect powder day!
  • + 8
 This. The best ski days are more fun than the best biking days but the average biking day is more fun than the average ski day.

 Baxter Maiwald got me definitely pmped on shredding in the summer again!

 Agreed, that was my favourite video as well

 @nikxwar: mine too. Proper style. Smooth as butter. Natural.

 Ty Morrow, what a vid. You have to be really dedicated to land that HUGE 180 over the fence and stairs, one mistake and his neck would be knackered (badum-tss).

 That Lonely Island video got me super stoked! Who ever filmed and edited it is a genius. Definitely, my fav video this week!

 @luiscarlos What's the weather tend to be like out there mid October? I'm considering (another) trip out there...
  • + 1
 @slimboyjim: Pretty good, better than the uk (I live in the UK atm aha), You're likely to get some rain, but its just before the temp drops and just after the busy tourist season, so ideal if you ask me, and Madeiran trails are prime for some lippy loamy stuff if it does rain a tad.
You can get heavy fog and wind in high mountains though.
