None of us really put that much thought into breathing, it's a natural body function that we can pretty much control. The rhythm and strength of our breathing strongly determines the mental and physical state we are in - change your breathing and you literally change your state of mind. Without breath there is no life. Plain and simple.

Now imagine not being able to breathe. Imagine not being able to make it up that hill or ladder to the drop in. What if the very act of breathing left you breathless. What if you couldn't Breathe Easy.


PBE - Nova Scotia


This is where Project Breathe Easy (PBE) was born. Matt Macduff came to the realization that breath was basically life, and when it's a struggle just to breathe, well it sucks. His little sister, Caitlin, has Cystic Fibrosis which for her and many others is primarily a lung disease. He has watched this disease basically take the wind from his sister’s sails. He knew he needed to do something to help people like his sister BREATHE EASY.

It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to release Project Breathe Easy to the Public. After roughly one year of online sales through Vimeo On Demand and over $11,000 raised (donated directly to Cystic Fibrosis Canada). It was the team’s pleasure to see all of their hard work, creating such awareness In the cycling community.

Bringing this one of a kind project to life was no easy task and it wouldn't have been possible with out the generous donations from some many of our supporters who believed in the project right from the beginning, and supported our Indiegogo campaign.

We hope this film will serve as a constant reminder of the on-going fight against Cystic Fibrosis. For more information on Project Breathe Easy check out projectbreatheeasy.com and don’t forget to make a difference and donate to your local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

 This film is my all time favorite, not only did Matt coordinate some of the best riders in the industry in order to ride and film some of the sickest and most creative lines developed to this day, but he was also able to raise awareness to a cause that should be given more attention. I watch this video atleast once a month ever since I purchased it on Vimeo the day it was released, and each time Ive been blown away! I think I speak for all of us when I say THANK YOU MATT for making this video and thank you for all those who helped along side him.

 Such a sick lineup of riders made for an even sicker movie! Pretty cool to see Semenuk and Rheeder on the list of people who've donated as well, good blokes.

 Love the Chase-part! Such a legend. Such a unique style! He's like a cat getting old. A bit stiffer then he usually was, but still so smooth and effortless! Great to see that he still makes the cut! Great soundtrack too. Lynguists ftw!

 The amazing thing is; i have no real interest in dirt jump or this style of riding but i happily sat for 27 minutes watching this video. This is the thing about our sport, every discipline has its qualities, each have something to be respected. Who cares about the bike its the rider, and who am i to complain about wheel sizes and stuff like that as i sit in front of a screen as they do rad stuff like this...

 Go get Strength in Numbers, Where the Trail Ends & other shitty viddies like that from TPB for free if you like, but do the right thing & buy this one.

This only adds to how hella cool the Duff is, givin' this to everyone for free.
