Video: Surfing Trails in Kamloops with William Robert
First off, banger edit....thanks for that guys! Always afraid one day i'll come on here and DH/FR will be a myth of the past...thanks for keeping it alive. @HaydukeLives: nah man....i guess maybe you have a point if you have limited time to surf/MTB. But I too was a surfer first, and even with 6 days a week in the water at some of the best breaks in socal....there simply no comparison relative to how many good days you have versus meh days. Always fun to get wet, but back when I was obsessed with surfing, I would sit out in the water waiting for sometimes up to 30minutes between sets. I absolutely cherished surfing, but when i got into the business world and was no longer a student, I had to pick one hobby (i'm a guy that gets obsessed with stuff, not enough time working and having two hobbies for me personally)....and the choice was so easy....MTB. Every single ride can be epic, and you have SO MUCH more flexibility on your riding schedule. When I surfed the waves dictated when I would surf....obviously....and that can become excessively burdensome when you want to surf every day, but can't just suddenly drop everything for a locals' moment or to chase the best waves around at different breaks. Not to mention, that's predicated on there being waves to begin with....which is not always the case. This is also assuming you can surf off hours, because if you surf early AM or PM after work...and there are waves...it will be CROWDED as fuck. Sure, after you surf a lot, you know how to navigate crowds and get your waves, but still...used to hate that when I was new, so uncomfortable out there for a newer surfer when you don't want to take a wave and peril/fuck it up haha. That does kind of increase the high of getting a good wave/ride though...and the best days where the surf is firing and consistent, well, those are special fucking days, and I don't think MTB can compare...unless you're in whistler/on an epic trip. MTB is always waiting...at least for those of us lucky enough to live near our trails. I even started riding at night with lights when daylight savings goes away so I can still ride after work starting at 6/7p. I miss surfing...no doubt. So awesome...just couldn't get my fix without being a total degenerate career guy constantly flaking on things to chase swell. Now I can still ride 5-6 days a week if I want, while maintaining 10-12hr work days. Highly recommend picking up skiing....lol...I used to dread rain because it would fuck riding and surfing, but now at least there's a silver lining to it...

Ken Block's Glow in the Dark Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper
you feel inadequate because your bike doesn't glow in the dark? Those stars my mom put on my ceiling growing up were pretty sweet, but I think I'll pass on the bike.

Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves
It’s heroic to chase a bike thief out of a store and somehow manage to get run over during the process?
