Video: Laura Kean Rides Big North Shore Lines

Dec 27, 2020
by andrew vincent  

Laura is gnarly. Riders on Vancouver's North Shore have known this for years, but we finally pinned her down to get it on film. Laura is a regular at Mount Seymour and never shies away from big rides or features with the boys.

 @rrolly: probably an accident, too bad you can’t undo an accidental neg.

 @rrolly: Jealous dude-bros that would never have the guts to ride the dynamite roll, so they troll Pinkbike instead.

 @heckler73: Well dang that used to work. You could reverse an accidental negative at least back to neutral. They need to fix that.

I don’t mind GP’ing it. Used to be that guy when out riding too.

Cheers all

 My thoughts exactly. It’s the handicam work, scenes on the foliage, and the music. Definitely the music.

Makes me nostalgic

 Yeah, I think because it hasn't been color graded.

 More of this PB. It’s inspiring to help get girls into the sport.

 This made me really homesick. What a great edit. I will aspire to be as ballsy as Laura one day Smile

 Me: that pinch point between the two boulders is a lot tougher a move than she makes it look!

The credits/outtakes: yup!

 I think if you're from somewhere else watching this you might smile and think something like "Rad, that was fun to watch!"

But if you're from the NS and you've seen the exposure and difficulty of this in person you might just be having a mild panic attack while watching instead lol

 Nice to see people wearing full face helmets while riding this stuff too. Remy Metailler makes me nervous riding the stuff he does with a half lid.

 The style, soundtrack, and general feel of this edit totally reminds me of the North Shore Extreme series. Great way to start my day!

 Wow props to you Laura!! I know I wouldn't ride those bigger features! It already looks big in video so in real life it must be scary as f*ck... and no elbow pads and glove! :O

 Cool trails and good riding. However, I fail to see the benefit of not wearing gloves.
