Almost immediately after Rough AF dropped last December, freeride legend Jordie Lunn returned to his second home, the deep woods of Vancouver Island, to dig and build fresh new line lines. Nearly half a year later, the result were lines - or at least what Jordie calls lines - that define what 'Rough AF' really means.

bigquotesThe build for Rough AF 2 was much more ambitious than the first! About five months of hard digging, cutting and wondering how each line would ride. There were definitely a few stunts that had me second guessing myself! It was a super fun project, and everything rode quite well in the end. I was pumped for Kali's support on this build and for sending Sterling Lorence over! It had been quite a few years since we've shot together, so I was pretty excited to show him what I'd been working on. On to the next build now!" - Jordie Lunn

 You just know that if the builds look gnarly on camera then they're filthy in person! The Lunnaissance is real.
  • + 50
 Think about having to climb up there to nail in those pieces. Are you kidding me? Then think about hiking your bike up there. . . . then riding it. wow.
  • + 16
 mad respect for Jordie, makes my builds look like smurfs stuff !!!

pd: you know he's serious when he's the one filming the guinea pigging on rampage's sickest lines with his phone.
  • + 4
 @JoseBravo: yeah... we get it: No Comments!!! haha Beer
  • + 3
 @rrolly: I think that roll in looked sketchier to build and get up than to ride... and it still looked sketch to ride!
  • + 7
 Jordie still killing it after all these years. That build though is pure insanity! @scottsecco if you make a sequel to builder I think you gotta put jordie in it.
  • + 1
 @scotttherider: is this the same Jordie all the way back from ROAM?
  • + 7
 I live in Victoria BC and have seen this in person and it is yuuuuuge. I have climbed up that wooden roller coaster and would never imagine riding down that with a bike. It's madness
  • + 5
 @hamncheez this is the biggest I've seen him go. He's always been a badass.
  • + 150
 I've never thought to myself, let's go build a line where I can cork-7 my downhill bike. Dude's a f'n legend in my book.
  • + 50
 Its amazing what Jodie does when he has a little porridge in him.
  • + 21
 @scott-townes: Eat your porridge, Jordie. Taking it way back with that reference!
  • + 11
 @scott-townes: That snake just went in his snake hole
  • + 4
 @whofarted-clark: that's got to be jordies best quote in my book!
  • + 73
 I wonder... If Jordie got together with Dan Atherton, what kind of sick bastard love child of a track would they come up with?!



Just the roll in just had me going "nope....nope.... no no no... nope"... Bit sketchy when wet?
  • + 4
 yes mate...it would be filth!!
  • + 4
 Agreed. Gotta get those two together! Wow!
  • + 2
 @jdsusmc: make this happen!!
  • + 2
 A very Nice build by a very creative dude!
  • + 74
 Keeping freeride alive, & holy shit that corked 7 was nuts!!
  • + 50
 I honestly don't even know where to start? That was thesikest video I think I have EVER seen! The features and builds were off the chart! So sick! More than anything I just wanna shake Jordies hand buy him a beer and then go build Rough AF3 with him! The features were so Inspirational and Fu king HUGE!!! That cliff drop! WTF! Awesome build, awesome riding and awesome edit! I'm gonna go watch it again!

 Like a NWD segment !
  • + 40
 Hey Pinkbike, where's the "MUST WATCH" label?
  • + 27
 That road gap...without a parachute?!
  • + 23
 that cork 7 out-of-nowhere and that roadgap drops are HUGE awesome edit
  • + 15
 This edit is sick, the build, the lines, the riding are all raw, beautiful, and perfectly done. The gap over that huge dead tree, the step down, that roll in, and what about that crazy wall feature at the end? Honestly love to see how Kali is sponsering guys who are out there pushing the limits of sanity like Lynn and McDuff. We need more sponsors who are interested in supporting freeriders/creative geniuses/complete lunitics.
  • + 18
 Dope! That vignette though...
  • + 7
 Yeah, for me the editing ruined the flow of the video a tad! Far too erratic with slo mo use
  • + 8
 @jezzah: The editing is fine. The only negative to this video is the mentioned vignette. Found myself cranking the brightness on my display to get a clearer view.
  • + 4
 @jezzah: I think they just need a fundamental lesson in how to properly use frame rates.... The full speed shots look like they were filmed in 15fps or less
  • + 1
 @PLAE: 24fps
  • + 17
 Jordie man... A true freerider! Fuckn legend
  • + 14
 '...on to the next thing...' he says. What are you building next Jordie?

A fricking Great Canyon in Utah?
  • + 12
 Jordie is as OG as they come! So fucking sick. Keeping freeride alive man. Let's get him and Dylan Sheffer together for a line!!
  • + 1
 Those two together would be nuts.
  • + 11
 How many times would I die doing that track?!?! I counted 5 things that I would not survive...dead, not hurt or broken bike...dead.
  • + 12
 Between jordy and the Ukrainians I think we r going to be alright
  • + 3
 Hahahahahaha
  • + 10
 MEGA PROPS to everyone who helped build and sculpt this modern freeride masterpiece!! And of course mega props to Jordie for straight killing it on the bike!
  • + 9
 this is one of the most insane lines i've ever seen... props!
  • + 8
 Reminds me of NWD films in the gold years of FR and that's a really good thing.
  • + 4
 Was going to say the same! Imaginative riding at its best!
  • + 9
 Sick as anything I have seen for years. Jordie killed it.
  • + 6
 How come he doesn't do rampage? Sick free riding skills and the build is on another level, how about inviting the fest boys to session this amazing build
  • + 1
 He did do rampage back in the early 2000's.
  • + 7
 That alleyoop 180 transfer to end the vid was so great! Basically built a skatepark style line just for that; so cool.
  • + 8
 Just when i thought my day was Rough AF.
  • + 6
 I cannot imagine what some of stuff looked like in person. I was not expecting that at all.
  • + 5
 Jordie , followed the build, watched the crashes and the finished product is insane. Incredible vision and perseverance, that was unreal. Your a bloody animal! Well done!
  • + 6
 Rough as Fuck indeed. Jeez. That big nasty drop wasn't even the ender move. My goodness
  • + 4
 Anyone else get the chills from that shit.. daym! Now thats your line of the year. Y.T has ALL the BOSS rider"s right now..so badass!
  • + 5
 @ redbull: i think Jordie just got his first class ticket for Rampage 2017
  • + 5
 Lunn is my favorite Suicide Girl. Jokes aside, the dude's mental!
  • + 5
 lunnatic, you mean? Wink
  • + 6
 That's not very enduro
  • + 3
 Another killer score for YT - Look at that TUES fly!!!!!!!!!!! I remember him crashing and kicking his RM down the hill in Ruff AF1.
  • + 5
 Holy fecking shitballs!!!!! He's kinda like a new-school Wade Simmons.
  • + 2
 That was sick as fuck! MORE PLEASE! Insane amount of work must have gone into the building of those jumps and fair play to Jordie for sending it! There's a snake in my pants!!! ahahaha
  • + 3
 Good to see him progressing I've never even seen the guy 360 a dh big lol still wish he did the signature "nothing" in there somewhere tho..
  • + 1
 He's been doing corked 7s for about a decade now.....
  • + 2
 @scott-townes: on a dh bike??? I know he's done then on a dj but dj/slope bikes but they take less effort to get a corked 7 stomped then a dh rig why else does everyone start with a dj? My point was I've never seen the guy 360 a dh bike so seeing him go straight for the 720 for the vid was crazy
  • + 4
 Special effects those days...
  • + 3
 You are faaaaauuuuked... So much guineapigg'n .. More then any one man should have to bare.. RESPECT! as usual....
  • + 4

 Not close to the record but nobody has thrown down such a sick line in years. Freeride proper.
  • + 1
 @dfiler: thats for sure. I'm into PB since 2013 and that's one of the most rough or biggest lines I've seen so far.

I'm shitting my pants every time I ride a drop higher than 3 meters Big Grin
