This past summer was full of highlights, and sure, some of the time those highlights revolved around raucous games of beach volleyball, wild frisbee tosses and insane stand up paddle-boarding. The reality of summer, however, is that it's beauty is best described by a day in the bike park. Laps with friends, passing each other down the trail and enjoying every minute of it is what we live for.

Here is a short video that I shot along with some lads on bikes (Mike Hopkins, Mason Mashon and Simon Buzacott) and my good friend Andre Nutini, who pulled cables for the better part of three days. Considering it was a pretty rush job, we were all pretty happy with what we managed to pull together. We just hope you all share our sentiment of Bikes not Beaches.

Absolute Zero

 Now this is what life should be all about... Doing what you love, and enjoying every minute of it! During the off-season, it's my goal to get rad every chance I get, instead of waiting for the next season to roll around. (Although I definitely wouldn't mind that weather year round) Wink
