I met Andrew back in Whistler a few years ago, when I squidded past him and Ryan Middleton on Dirt Merchant, nose casing every table with my big f-stop camera bag on. I then watched the two of them send past me, over-90 whipping every hit of the way, and I thought "jeez I need to shoot these guys..."

Andrew being chased round a side hit by the homie Ryan Mid, during a Deep Summer shoot day

Since then, Andrew's seen me through two Deep Summer Photo Challenges, riding in them, helping pick tunes, and prodding me at 4:00 am whilst I was falling asleep editing. He's probably the most underrated rider I know, and someone should definitely give him a bike.

The stoke is very real

We shot the video in the couple of days after Deep Summer Whistler, in a weird state of Crankworx buzz and sleep deprivation. Our aim was to go and grab footy on our favourite bits of the bike park and stay in one piece. We got a bit weird, and here's the result. Hopefully, it brings you a dose of summer vibes in these strange times. Not long now and we'll all be back hugging and shredding dusty laps together in Whis. Peace!

 I wish I was doing time in Whistler instead of my own house.

 There's not much going on here, all the trails are snowed in, we're a ghost town and also restricting ourselves to our houses. Squamish and Pemberton are telling people from out of town to piss off and stop riding so technically no one from Whistler should be riding bikes. When we eventually open we'll be welcoming everyone with open arms. Until that day, stay home

 @db235612: But you have the advantage of actually being in Canada lol. I had return flights from Sydney to Vancouver. Not any more. I now have one flight to LAX... and then a return from Vancouver. Go figure how that helps me Qantas?? The pessimist in me says both my flights are going to get canned.
