 Chuckanut is a native word, taken from a Lummi placename borrowed from the Nooksack language, meaning "long beach far from a narrow entrance" or beach on a bay with a small entrance.” The Nooksack word chúkwenet means “beach or tide goes way out,” and some suggest that it refers to Chuckanut Creek, where it empties into Chuckanut Bay.

To me, Chuckanut also means FUN

 Sorry but he knew exactly what he was doing, lil dude playing chicken, all cocky and shit!

 Bryn Atkinson? More like Brap Asskickin.

 Poor Jill......

 Jesus he is fast. Would love to hear his take on new Range. Collision at end was funny, Poor Camera operator, didn't even get on the credits.
  • + 2
 I believe Bryn in general "self shoots"
No camera operator..just the camera and him.

 @denomerdano: Perhaps you should watch the shot that happens after the credits.

 New Range 9 is an animal, beastmode.

 I cant help but think that there may be a small % speed up in the replay.... if not... damn dude you are killing it. By no means trying to be a hater as the resulting clip is still sick. Just hard to make the feeling of riding that fast translate to the screen.

I wish I had trails that aggressive to shred. Keep filming and sharing bro.

 @denomerdano: And poor Jill who I'm assuming is the one behind the camera at the end when he runs right into her.

@eswebster: Maybe, but having seen him ride in person, I doubt it. He's ridiculously fast.

 @Rubberelli: watched it on mute while the baby eas a sleep. Must have missed the voices.
It also says filmed and edited by Bryn.
So, hold on to your pants keyboard warrior.
  • + 5
 @denomerdano: it is true that most of it is self filmed, however there is one shot in there which isn't; the camera clearly tracks his movement down the trail, suggesting that someone was filming that one section. Considering Jill got run over in the credits, and also how Bryn was saying he couldn't find a camera man interested, I'd say that was her.

 @denomerdano: he's so fast he hit himself

 ...and I just ran over my videographer. That riding was insane....

 @Loamhuck: it was self filmed

 @SPOKEn: He hits the camera lady after the credits. You can see the camera being panned and hear them talking to each other.

 Bryn is the man, so much win in so many categories. What an eye for the shot, he must have spent lots of time on this to polish it to such degree. He's cornering skill is just insane.

 You're grammar skill is just insane.

 disclaimer: no squirrel was hurt in the making of this shredit
  • + 8
 Was that Jill who crashed in the last bit or was Jill working the camera? Aside from that the cornering skills of this man are simply the best I've ever seen. He's taken Newton's laws of motion and treated them as mere suggestions of conduct!
  • + 8
 Jill was behind the camera.. RIP
  • + 3
 @laxguy: I'm sure it didn't feel good, but Jill's a lot tougher than that!

 I really appreciate seeing a video with a stable camera.

Too many of these are littered with the gratuitous "shaky camera that follows the rider around the corner, and then zooms in too much" shots lately.
  • + 1
 I totally agree
  • + 8
 Awesome again! The stationary camera does a great job of capturing the speed. Less is more
  • + 7
 Ridiculously good.
@Bryn-Atkinson What camera do you use? That shit is criiiiisp.
  • + 4
 Awesome quality. Would love to know what lenses were used too?
  • + 8
 Always enjoy seeing my back yard on the big screen. Thanks so much!!
  • + 4
 I was watch this video and ..."Squirrel!!!"....oh, and I enjoyed it tremendously.

Not as much as standing track side at Mountain Creek or Snowshoe when he ripped by, but alot!
  • + 5
 The definition of "pinning" it, thats how i imagine i look while im riding haha
  • + 5
 Bryn must really hate corners, nothing left of them by the time he's done!! Pinned
  • + 6
 His little counter balance carves to set him up for the next sweeping corner are simply poetry in motion. To carry that kind of speed and maneuver his bike like that is amazing to watch. Doesn't seem possible. Puts it into perspective how talented some riders are compared to us mere mortals.
  • + 6
 @southernrockyflow: It's amazing watching him treat a bunch of rooty gnarly techy stuff as if it were a pumptrack. Seriously, he's constantly pumping for speed, to transition the bike, to get little bits of air to clear obstacles, all so damn fast you can hardly catch it in real time. Fun to watch for sure.
  • + 3
 His cornering skills are next level. His section in Barred for Life 2 is in my top 5 rider sections off all time

 Damnit Byrn.... Watching this in the parking lot of my office building before work. Now I just want to ride and say F-- work today.

 master class in composition. I should just show this when I teach about using foreground elements in your composition. super nice stuff, bryn!

but self-filmed? I saw a moving camera 1:16 and heard an operator nearly get killed
  • + 1
 Its likely in post production, the frame just goes up and then down again, its probably zoomed in a little @steezysam
  • + 6
 too short!

 OMG, cannot wait to get back to WA next month and hit these trails again, its been too long...

 I do poppy little speed airs out of every berm I hit......wakes up, makes coffee, back to reality.

 Its official...Bryn's style is the one I most wish to emulate.

 that little dab of the brake to make that cut of a turn at 1:18 was just masterful

 I noticed that when he posted that short clip on insta! Good call

 That's battery you jerk! She should take you to court. Or at least to task.

 is this craftily sped up momentarily throughout or some kinf of weird editing becsusr it didn't look natural. Or maybe the position of camera and it being such short sextuons of trail he appears to fly by quicker
