Must Watch: 12-Year Old Dane Jewett Shreds With Carson Storch, Thomas Vanderham, & Remi Gauvin - Video

Oct 11, 2018
by Rocky Mountain Bicycles  

What’s it like to experience Whistler through the eyes of a kid? In short, it’s awesome. You get to eat ice cream for lunch, there’s no such thing as a to-do list, and your mind is set to cruise control. You're focused on having as much fun as possible. So, whether you’re chasing your heroes down the trail, or unexpectedly leading them, we think the world looks pretty good from a grom’s eye view.

Dane Jewett’s a 12-year old kid from Squamish and has been tearing it up on the Reaper for the past three years. Starting on 24” wheels, he moved up to 26” for this season and is looking to take his first ride on the all-new Reaper 27.5 later this year. Dane Jewett is the Grom Reaper, and he’s pretty fun to follow.

 I think this is the best video since Seasons to really capture how fun Whistler is to ride with your buds! Seriously, so good all around. Dane for 2020 Whip Off champ?

 I agree, was thinking - just another whistler edit - but that was sweeet. Damn Dane, you put me to shame!

 Also that Ice Cream is obviously the best source of fuel!

 Totally agree, haven't been that stoked to ride after watching a bike park video in a long, long while.

 100% This was the best Whistler based video I've seen in years! Absolutely brought me back to my childhood watching my hero ride in videos....but Dane gets to ride with them! It came full circle!

 Agreed! Great riding, great editing and filming. That was amazing!

 26" never will be dead. Who doesn't want to get kids introduced into this sport? How many potential kids there are outthere for ridding propper MTB? If your Dad is not a rider the government should provide you one of this bikes, it would get away future generations from drugs and crime and giving back good trails to the land for creating paradise on Earth. This is my Utopia.

 Get away from drugs? Lol

 @elkinfa19: I´ve never taken regularly any really. Instead some others may watch too much TV and official propaganda...

 Here's the rub, it all starts way before 26". Thankful Spawn (who Dane rode for iirc) has been making it happen for 6yro on sick 20" FS bikes in Whistler.

 I like this new young shredder breed of edit. Not once did he slowly don his goggles or show us his Toyota truck. Win!

 This kid rips harder than I ever will! Great video. Well done ????????????????????????

 The only thing I could do better than him now is to drink beer ????

 Freeze frame on that hip jump, you 'really can't tell he's a kid. Looks vanderham steezy.

 I remember watching a snowboarding video similar to this 20 years ago; with a 12 year old ripper. He didn't ride like a kid. He rode like a pro. That dude's name? Shaun White.
Keep shredding lil dude. Stay outta trouble and you'll be able to go as far as you want! ????????

 Best thing in the world to grow up there biking. I'm going green with envy =)

 What a maniac! Shit my self when saw how the bars fit him, are massive, and he doesn't even care or bling for that matter, goooo kiddooooo!
  • + 6
 He has to cut this thing by 5 cm in each side Smile
  • + 3
 He will grow into them ;-)

 Incredible skills!

 I looked a bit closer, its not that his bar is too big, but the grips are compared to his hands, his hand position is fine. Even though little man rides better than a grown man his hands are small, he's 12, so even if he were to cut his bar it still would still look like that because the grips are twice as wide as his hands. Kinda messes with your eyes.
  • + 1
 @dirtyrig: yea you are right, also the grips must be twice as thick as they should , this kid is a reaper! Smile

 Fuarkkk why did I watch this at night? I want to go destroy some trails now!

 Way to go Dane! Definitely captures the essence of what biking is all about: FUN! Always inspiring to watch someone his age throw the bike around like that. ????????
  • + 1
 Not that I ever had (or will ever have) the talent and riding chops that this kid has, but I sure do wish bike parks and bikes like that existed when I was 12. Great stuff.

 The kid eats his Shreddies for sure! So awesome and making me miss Whistler already!

 Great video. he has more skill than I ever had or ever will have, but he needs to cut his bars down and move his brakes in! he be able to get closer to the trees.

 Didn't look like he needed his brakes much... ;-)

 Sometimes you just have to look at the humble pie sitting in front of you and enjoy it Smile
