Finn Iles - Shredding Panorama:
A few weeks ago Tommy and I headed out to Panorama Bike Park, for some chill time between races. Fast and loose trails called for some clips and a quick shreddit to recap the afternoon!
As we get older, our priorities change, time becomes fleeting, and we learn to take less for granted. Ambassador Tim DaCosta is learning to embrace and appreciate every minute he gets to spend with his family. Bikes have become a critical part of their daily life. With the continued popularity of pump tracks and dirt jumps, they're becoming more accessible to riders of all ages and are proving to transcend generations and strengthen family bonds.
I am stoked to present this project that Blake Rountree and I have put a huge amount of effort into! We shot this over a very short day and a half and used every second of the available light. I've never walked so many kilometres in the Redwoods! We are both super proud of the finished film and hope you like it.
