Having fun is why most of us ride and the reason we continue on thru cuts, bruises, broken bikes and body parts. It is also why we sweat it out in the dirt digging and creating our own unique works of art. One's vision is different than another's and that is why it makes us smile when we get to watch someone having fun on their masterpiece. Sit back and enjoy a glimpse into the mind of Mark Matthews.

Nothing like a good huck in the woods

 0:29 Whoa, nailed that.

Same trails as Higher Calling 2? Does Mr Secco ever produce anything less than ace? Top work dude.

 Hey @SubMarined, this was all shot on Vancouver Island but different trails than HC2. Lots of fun stuff to ride if you ever make a trip out to the Colonies!

 @scottsecco: literally just asked the missus for it too! - she said "the baby's asleep" which translates to NO. In plain English!!!! (Damn it)

 So where in SoCal do I find these trails? Wait... nevermind... sigh... I'll be in my bedroom crying if anybody needs me.

Awesome vid and stoopid jealous of the trails!

 I know I say this a lot but that was genuinely one of the best videos I have seen this year! The angles were flawless and Mark was riding like a madman! He got so leaned on that right hip I thought he was going to flip it! Cheers Scott on another instant classic.

 Awesome Mark and Scott, been waiting forever for this to come out. Nice to see Ridgeline crew's local cumby trails getting some media. Look forwards to more projects together.

 I've watched this video at least 50 times in the last two days. And now I'm sitting here, writing a 10 page essay on some chemistry sh*t I don't understand. But this video is so amazing, it makes me wanna go riding for hours. @scottsecco you've done it again, love your work!

 So rad!! Love this video because it feels real & balanced & thought out.. not just using random heap of slo-mo/gimbal/drone/zoom, etc. So solid.

@scottsecco where can I find out more about your video gear ?

Also had to go look up Suntour forks since I haven't really checked them out before.

 Thanks @filmdrew! I use a Sony FS700 with a Canon 16-35mm 2.8, Zeiss 50mm 1.4, and a Canon 70-200 2.8 IS. I also have an 8 foot Kessler crane a Glidecam which I used for this video. We shot this a while back and I've upgraded to a DJI Ronin which basically replaces both those tools for me. Also used a DJI Phantom 3 4k drone for the opening shot. Hope that helps!
