bigquotesI love working with my brother Liam on these shoots. Growing up, he was the little brother who I picked on and told him he sucked. Now, he tells me I suck and to hike back up and do it again. It's a partnership only brothers know, but I had it coming.Reece Wallace

Mayday is an emergency procedure word used as a distress signal in radio communications. Convention requires the word be repeated three times in a row during the initial emergency declaration ("MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY") to prevent it being mistaken for some similar-sounding phrases.

Starting from scratch, a vision was in place for the trail. What the lips will look like, how it will ride, what tricks the trail should allow. Putting together countless hours thinking, wandering, building and testing resulted in a beautiful hand built trail in under six weeks
