I'm JP Maffret, 16 years old from Sherwood Park, Alberta. I definitely put all my time, money, and effort into this video. When filming a video I like to take more of a BMX or skater's approach to riding and editing: stack clips for the entire year then have a really banger video, instead of trying to film it all in a few days. It can be a struggle trying to film a video in Alberta as you get snow seven months of the year, and when it is summer you end up digging more then riding. All of this video was filmed by whoever I could find at the time. In the end seeing the final product always makes it worth it. Shout out to Reilly Horan and Pete Comstock for being the trail crew out in Sherwood Park. Thanks to all the guys out at Chromag Bikes for helping me out.

 This kid is sick! He needs 2 things asap: more sponsors, and some new shirts! He is going to be a major force in a few years for sure.

 All these people shitting on the editing....A) it's about the riding. B) I would like to hear how you would have shot it???? C) These kids are riding-not much time to sit and edit if you're learning new tricks-they don't have a bankroll like gopro or redbull or a bike company

Too be honest, it's not much different than what I've seen----think back to the days of "If only every mountain bike video was shot like this"

 That's what keyboard shredders do. Shit on someone's hard work and ignore what they are actually seeing and hearing.

 I don't see any complaints about the editing.. In a bangers only video like this one it's all killer no filler. If you don't understand then you aren't watching the right videos

 Not bad edit, good riding, but it depicted that the kids got a horrible attitude, which really ruins it. Sponsors don't want that. He may not be like that all the time, but it probably isn't the greatest idea to be unapproachable if you want to get sponsored.
