Video: Seaside Trials with Danny MacAskill

Jun 4, 2019
by James Smurthwaite  

Danny MacAskill is celebrating his switch to Adidas clothing with this trials and enduro edit filmed in Glencoe and Dunbar. Danny will be working with Adidas for apparel but stays part of the Endura family for helmet, gloves and protection.

bigquotes"Danny MacAskill x adidas Outdoor: Welcome to the Family” announces my new partnership with adidas Outdoor after having been partnered with Five Ten for almost a decade. I had so much fun getting creative in the scottish sun on the mountain 'Buachaille Etive Beag' near Glenncoe and in and around the turquoise waters of Dunbar harbour. We lucked out with the weather big time! I hope you enjoy the video!Danny MacAskill

 I would have also been crippled by crash over the deer fence stile. In the alternate universe where I could make it that far of course...

 Another banger video from Danny MadSkills. I turned the volume up until the music hurt.

 "Wow that draw bridge would make a perfect ramp for a backflip". Danny Mac - gigantic front flip to flat.

 I think that's the first time I've ever uttered an involuntary "F@ck off!" while watching a riding edit. The distance!

 Always amazed at his riding, but am I the only one wondering about the story behind the foot bridge over what looks like an old canal that's in the middle of the water now?

 This is the only relevant info I could find in my 5min search. Seems the land mass in the area has deteriorated for a while now. Maybe someone else can confirm.

 Hi, Dunbar local here. The bridge goes over a river, however when the tide comes in the bridge is isolated. It’s in Belhaven bay and it’s dubbed ‘The Bridge to Nowhere’. For you Americans out there, Dunbar is also where John Muir was born!

The other beach you mention is on the other side of Dunbar. Over a number of years the sand have been transported away from the beach through natural processes.

 @samanual: Oh. I thought that, like, a hundred years ago some local prophecy spoke of 'digital cameras' and 'trials pennyfarthings' and some chosen one that would come and need a location that looked great in his 'edit' so it was built in preparation for His arrival. Or perhaps I've had too much wee heavy.

 @number44: it's a phenomenon called Ocean Carbon Frame and Hoop Overflow.

 Is Addidas some fake version of Adidas because he should not be working with them. (Or the proof readers here at PB are shocking)

 Somehow I feel Endura was a better fit for him. It just suits his roots. Just like I always felt Steve Peat should be riding Hope brakes on his Orange bikes even when he did so well on these Santa Cruz bikes with the SRAM or Shimano package.

 I appreciate you considering my time and the video length by "overdubbing" 4 tricks in to one shot. But I have to watch every trick 5 times to figure out whats going on which means I had to watch 2:10-2:15 20 times. Not complaining just trying to help save on your FX budget.

 There is a typo in the first paragraph on the word Adidas. I find it easy to spell by remembering a little acronym: All Day I Dream About Snickers.

 Obviously amazing, but I was kinda hoping he would 180 between the rails on that bridge in the water, like on the train tracks... :-)

 There is a TLD - adidas special edition, warner probably was wearing that one i guess (just like brendog at rampage)

 Think that is the TLD/Adidas collaboration.... www.pinkbike.com/news/troy-lee-releases-adidas-collab-race-kit.html

 Brendog for a good while now as well. I think they have always owned five ten so have always been around in the sport really.

 I thought Hans Rey used to ride in their clothing. So they've been into this for a good while. And of course they've been into eyewear (glasses and goggles) for fifteen years at least, considering what the riders in The Collective were wearing.

 @Radley-Shreddington: If by "always" you mean since 2011... Five ten was founded in 1985 as a climbing shoe company, started making MTB shoes in 2000.

 @robwhynot: Always in the sense of as long as they have sponsored Danny Mac. But thanks for the lesson, my life is now complete.

 Yes. Since end of 2011. I was surprised to find out about that a few months ago.

 Great video it just looks like he needs a camera man so he doesn’t have to come back to the camera all the time! Frown

 It's just an act (that they've overused this time) – it's a professional camera with the operator behind it, they just asked Danny to pretend to set it up.
