I've been waiting to film something at the Garden dirt jumps for about 2 years now. As this season was coming to an end, I had to do it soon. The weather looked like it was going to be as good as it gets for a long time, so I decided to take off work and make it happen. It was "Too Good Not To" do it. I got out to the Garden before sunrise to hopefully film for a few hours before anyone else showed up and it worked. I couldn't have asked for a better way to end the trail season for the year!

 Great Song, great Jumps and grey riding! Song totally worked, I love tht you just flowed and styled the jumps, personally I'm sick of seeing all the usual dirt jump tricks, ( not taking away from all the skilled riders, I admire and respect your effort dedication and skills to do the tricks! I am just tired of seeing all the same things in dirt jump videos!
Great job all around one of the best DJ videos I have seen in years

 Nice one Matt.
Don't need the slow mo.
Your riding, shooting and editing are so good that it detracts. Minor though. A+ for a self shot piece.

 Wow! Awesome video especially considering it's all done by one guy. I don't think I ever expected to hear that song in a dj video but it was spot on. One of my favorite dj videos. Definitely going on my favorites!

 Yeah I like the quite and the leaf that got sucked up the lip and teetered briefly...it gives perspective to the edit as if you were actually there in serenity of that place as he rode all solitary and dedicated likeSmile

 but it's creative and different. He wasn't getting ready to go riding he was getting ready for work until he checked the weather. Adds to the "story"

 Water the lines before you ride. It'll keep the dirt from cracking and crumbling away, as featured in this vid.

 What world do you live in where you can afford to have deemax on your dirt jump bike? Sweet skills though, would kill to be able to manual like that
