bigquotesI would consider the Sunshine Coast my home away from home. Small town vibes with an unreal riding scene. The Coast Gravity Park has so much to offer. The flowiest trails, high grade food, and a class act of employees, it's hard to stay away. - Ryan Howard

 That was one of the best things I've seen in months. No filler, barely any slomo and more style than my eyeballs have room for.
  • + 17
 Would be pretty hard to shoot a filler shot with R-Dog's riding!

 at the end of the video i was saying "stop stop, my penis can only get so erect"

 Holy crap what a sick video. Coupling the slopestyle bike with the guitar solo was dead-nuts-on. Ryan tore that poor mountain a new one.
  • + 1
 Lol really watch the switch as he does the superman its like a magic trick lol
  • + 3
 Seconded. Easily the best riding segment I've seen in years - the riding, the trails, the editing - everything about this blew me away and I don't say that easily! Unreal - time to watch it again... and again.... etc

 @sterlingmagnum - very well said!

 Steezy!!!!!!!

 Good to know hahaha thanks for the laugh!

 Absolutely in my top 3 of the year. That was ridiculous. I can't believe he did a flat spin on the flight deck step up... What a freak.
  • + 33
 Meh, smashing berms and spreading sick disease on jumps is so played. Its all about fat bikes now. That way, you don't even have to use high dollar slo-mo cams! But yeah, Sunshine is now officially the next place I'm going...afterall, braking bumps won't make themselves!
  • + 22
 That was fucking ridiculous.
  • + 20
 It's like he's using cheat codes!
  • + 17
 never log on but this requires an exceptional effort. too steezy
  • + 12
 Bar width comparison? Be interested to see what width he was using on the big bike particularly, seemed a little narrower than most of us would run.
In fact, full spec comparison across this three bikes would be awesome.
Excellent vid, now show me a companion spec list pls and I will cross your palm with silver
  • + 14
 Nobodies interested in seeing how his setup compares over the three bikes? Or my silver? Come on now
  • + 16
 Better than most full-length videos. Would pay money.
  • + 11
 What a motherHucker ! With that and "In The Know", if he had to prove he's one of the best riders on the planet, it's done. Impressive and stylish !

 flat spin approved

 so dumped on the big rig!

 Could almost care less about the other bikes after that. So sick on the big bike.
  • + 10
 R-dog proving that it dont matter what you ride, just ride like ya stole it!!
  • + 5
 So just curious because most of the videos I see of Coast have made me wonder: is it only flow trails there? I don't ever see anything rocky or anything, but I'm wondering if it's just a case of A-line syndrome. Can anyone enlighten me?
  • + 1
 They do have a few techy trails but they still have some jumps and are very flowy
  • + 1
 They've got a small selection of tech trails but there are a lot of flow trails there
  • + 1
 Devils elbow to hand job is a full on DH trail that is flowy if you are going fast enough same with Dynamite Panther. Find the vid of Troy Brosnan testing the new demo there
  • + 1
 I dunno if I would say full on DH track? Those are all fun trails but if you compare to the stuff in Whistler it is not the same as far as rocky/rooty tech goes. That said it's an amazing bike park and everyone should check it out, the trails are built perfectly and always in great shape with the hard work the crew puts in. Sunshine Coast rocks.
  • + 2
 Everything is flowy, even the more techy trails, just because its all built right. But there is a little of everything for sure, the a-line style trails are the most popular
  • + 1
 They have like a million perfectly sculpted jumps and my local park can't even maintain the one they have...smh

 Gotta be one of my favorite people to watch ride a bike

 I went there earlier this year and had the pleasure of riding up in the truck with Ryan (didn't realize it at the time however). It took me 2 solid days of riding Coastal Cruise before I could even clear all the features, and he is tricking all of them, its simply amazing

 "Watch me whip.... now watch me nac nac"
-R-dog, probably

 I was thinking the exact same thing...

 Trek made the worst ever full suspension bike in the beginning. Now they make these sick rigs. What a long way you have come Trek.

 looks like trek is hiding the trail bike hes on. looks like last years remedy 9.8 29 paint scheme but on a 650 wheels bike thats 2 sizes too small for him...

 Dammit R-Dog! Now i gotta squeeze a ride in before i go to work.

 That was a “10”
Harrison Mendel and R-Dog really knocked it outta the park with this one…
BRAVO…

p.s. I will have to visit The Coast Gravity Park…Wow!!

 it's all about the rippin and the tearin!
  • + 3
 He can really shred. I have ran into him out there a few times and he could not be a nicer more down to earth guy.
  • + 4
 I would rather hear the crunch of dirt with speed than slomo
  • + 2
 Skip jump looks to be a bit bucky... got him twice at 1:14, in a white shirt once, a black shirt the next. He grumbled a bit, but hey, killing it everywhere else!

 Sweet video, but am I the only one who gets annoyed at every other dude being called "Initial"-dog ?
  • + 9
 it is annoying but not with ryan howard cause he's been known as r-dog for a long time now, it's when some people just start calling people "initial" -dog just out of the blue that is kinda annoying
  • + 11
 i would rather be a dog than a c0w

 I need to learn how to land to a manual. That edit was awesome. How much DJ does he do? Seems to have a lot of slopestyle skill. This is the level all mtn bikers need to aspire to.

 You know, they don't work on everything, but I'd like to see more white and colored wheels. Black can get boring; colors are good so long as they make sense and are used tastefully. Well, white is, anyway. What are the wheels on his Session; are they custom?
  • + 1
 Dam R -dog is a beast on a bike one of my fav riding forshure His know how to ride
