 Have you guys been friends since you were little kids? If not what brought you together?

 We actually met about 6 years ago. I (Norbs) moved to the Sunshine Coast to take the Capilano University MTB Operatons program and thats when I met Dyl and Curtis and then everything went from there

 How did you like the MTB operations program? I will be taking it next year. Arrival was awesome by the way!

 How did the coastal gravity park opportunity come around? It's number 1 on my list of places to visit! I loved the film so much, I could tell how much work has gone into the filming and editing, it flowed from section to section so well! Also the trails you built are dream trails, so rad! Do you guys ride with Stevie a lot? Thanks Smile
  • + 27
 The opportunity came around just over a year ago. Some like minded friends/business owners from the Sunshine Coast came to us with the potential property, and the vision. We knew it would be one of the best things we could do for Sechelt and the entire Sunshine Coast. With a dwindling economy and next to nothing to do here for kids and young people we saw it as a no brainer. Provide jobs, bring people to the coast and most of all build the best trails possible! The support from our fans over the years has been unreal. We just want to give back as much as possible and try to do something bigger than just making videos. The trails are looking amazing, we have tons of work to do still but we cant wait to get everyone up there and on their bikes!
  • + 6
 That's a pretty epic and also really beneficial, it's nice to know that you guys took all of that into consideration. Top fellas! Thank for the reply!
  • + 22
 You guys fricken' killed it. My only thing: why wasn't there more Kenny Smith? His rock roller line was rad. Also what brand of shorts are you norbs and curtis wearing these days? they looked sick
  • + 15
 Thanks! There wasn't more Kenny Smith because we filmed everything at the peak of Whistler in fall 2012. Unfortunately due to timeline, injuries and a full production schedule in the spring, we werent able to collect more. It's tough when there is so much to build, film and coordinate while keeping consitency throughout segments. We are all running Specialized apparel, and the shorts you see will be available early 2014.
  • + 23
 What happened to Kyle jameson?
  • + 21
 Kyle J is killing it down in Cali! He's shredding, building jumps and trails, and loving life! We always get to catch up every summer in Whistler and its great!

 Hey guys great film!! loved it!! Smile
so I was wondering how do you guys get such sick paint/decal jobs on your bikes? do you guys personalize them?
thanks again for a great movie cant wait for what the future holds!!!. jack.
  • + 23
 You're welcome for the film! We each do our own decal jobs on our bikes and helmets. Specialized allows us to be creative and have fun with them, and its great!
  • + 6
 what do you use on the bikes? vinyl or just normal stickers
  • + 15
 Just vinyl that you find at a normal sign shop.

 thanks for the reply!! once again sweet film Wink

 Is riding and filming your only job or do you have another way to earn money?

 Do you guys pay for your bikes, helmets and stuff, or its sponsorship? How did you get that sponsorship, if it is?
  • + 47
 Dumb question, obviously they have no sponsors
  • + 24
 If you've watched them riding you should know that they are sponsored, and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out why.

 Hi, there is allot of jabber about this movie not having a theme.. one could say the whistler seggy was the basis of the movie.The music seemed to lead up to that moment and then set the tone for the rest.. Was that your plan? also i would like to say i do like the strait up action approach i can understand why the fans want more.. Thnx for making things happen in the mtb world..
  • + 45
 Thanks! It's tough to put a theme into action sports movies when its really all about riding. The films theme was pretty much to showcase a group of talented young riders who were given an opportunity to put their skills to work. We just wanted to make a bike movie that gets people stoked to ride and not worry about a storyline.
  • + 9
 Getting people stoked to get outside and ride was definitely achieved !! Great job !

flag OliRas (Nov 29, 2013 at 21:36) (Below Threshold)
 yeah, some films like strength in numbers and where the trail ends have a story behind them, don't get me wrong it was a sick as film, but a little more story or theme with some more talking would have been rad.

 Semenuk is your best friend?
you live in the same house?
why semenuk is not in your movie?

 Brandon is a good friend of ours and we all have very busy schedules and different commitments. Brandon is working on a major film project of his own which he is putting a lot of effort into as a big focus. Glad you enjoyed the movie though and dont worry, you wont be disappointed with Brandons project

flag mfbeast12 (Nov 30, 2013 at 21:00) (Below Threshold)
 also probably because Specialized was one of the film's sponsors and Semenuk is sponsored by Trek.
  • + 6
 Uh, like half of the riders in the film are sponsored by companies other than specialized, including Ryan Howard who rides for Trek.
  • + 4
 and logan peat, hes sponsored by santa cruz.
  • + 15
 how long (on average) does it take you to build a trail from walking around planning it out to riding it? Loved arrival btw!
  • + 8
 Thanks! It can take a few weeks on average. It really depends on length of trail and terrain/ dirt we're working with.
  • + 12
 I can imagine there is already a ridiculous number of hours put into every film you produce, but is there any chance of a future film being closer to the one hour mark... they are simply to stoke worthy to end between 30-40 minutes.
  • + 17
 As The Coastal Crew we simply have too much to do! Just like you say there are countless hours put into a movie like this and its a very consuming process especially for just 3 guys. We are professional riders with a lot of other obligations that are hard to juggle, but in the end we get to do what we love! We love the length of Arrival, short and sweet. To answer your question the bottom line is to make it longer we have to dedicate more time, which we don't have!
  • + 10
 Then short and sweet they shall remain. Gives us (viewers) more riding time Wink
  • + 4
 At the end of the day, you get to watch the video online for free, and then decide if you're willing to pony up a whopping $12.99 for it... I'd say that is whopping good value for a 30 minute film!! Better then back in the day when a VHS was like $40, had awful everything in it, and was still barely 40 minutes long! Good work boys, always my faves, own 'em all.
  • + 6
 I have no complaints about the price, and would even be willing to pay more for a longer film. Buying it for sure!
  • + 13
 What would you guys recommend to someone wanting to do videos? and what kind of camera to start with, a DSLR or a Video camera ?
Cheers
  • + 21
 The first thing you have to ask is do you want auto focus? If its not really important then go DSLR. The quality of video you get for the cost is pretty unreal, small compact and very versatile. We started with a Canon 7D and a 50mm lens. It has filmed everything from our first web video all the way to the tree falling shot in Arrival. We were able to get where we are today with that one camera. After investing in a few lenses and learning the basics the sky is the limits. If your ready to make the jump down the road, your Canon lenses can be adapted to almost any high end camera e.g. Sony fs700, RED, Panasonic Af100 etc.
  • + 12
 Thanks a lot for the reply and keep up the awesome work, you guys really describe exactly what is mountain biking for most of us out there.
  • + 2
 but with that high end cameras, the focus remains manual mode?
  • + 2
 no manual focus are on DSLR
  • + 3
 The higher end cameras have auto focus just as the 7D even had auto focus while filming but it's 100% worthless. I have an af100 and fs700 - both have decent autofocus however, nobody really uses it. It's always better to use manual focus when setting up your shots just to guarantee you get the shot.
  • - 1
 Your movie made got me motivated but ree falling shot made me sad.
  • + 10
 CC, would you guys be interested in "how to" sorta videos on youtube or whatever on video editing or tips/tricks over the years?

Also would you be cool with sharing your designs for your crane/jib thing and your cablecam/slider thing. Thanks for any reply!
  • + 13
 What was the most difficult shoot from this new film?
  • + 12
 The most difficult shoot was Brazil. It was really hard to adapt to the temperatures and conditions. We had a few set backs during the trip which we had to overcome as well. It wasn't easy
  • + 8
 I'm an enthusiastic trail builder and have been greatly inspired by the work you guys have done on the new Coastal Gravity Park, could I ask, where did the inspiration come from for the boat kicker? Definitely one of the coolest features I've seen.
  • + 9
 The inspiration came when we saw the boat sitting in an empty lot and someone throwing the idea out that we should put a kicker on the roof and air over it. Stoked you like it!!

 Hi guys, a shout out from Greece, great movie! Watching Arrival but also other movies shot in Canada, I notice fallen trees around the trails. I was just wondering how easy/difficult the permitting process is in Canada, to build a trail etc. One of the most important aspects if you wish to build a trail that will last and not get destroyed by authorities or whatever! Many thanks and keep up the good work, the world is watching!!!
  • + 7
 Thanks!! Canada is great because there is a lot of opportunity to go into the woods to create trails. A lot of the time permission is given through private land owners, or partnerships/ agreements with forestry. There is always a ton of dead fall logs in the forest, and it works great to utilize that wood in trail building.
  • + 5
 And that's true ! pure canadian friendship XD
  • + 7
 i really look up to you guys, you have the lifestyle every biker wants! y question is, How much time is put in to making one of your magnificent trails, and also for the north shore aspects, what tools do you use? Thanks, Jonathan
  • + 7
 Every piece of trail is different, sometimes it takes months, sometimes more than a year until our tires touch the dirt for the first time. - chainsaw - mini sledge hammer - axe - spikes - digging spades - tape measure - splitting wedges Roughly sums up the list to build the wooden features. Then hope it all works out!

 There are many challenges with traveling, but its never out of the question. Because we like to build and create new and original lines to shoot, it means putting the time, effort and work in - with traveling that means you have to take a lot of factors into a account, and a lot of time and money. Thanks for the props and really glad you enjoy everything!!

 Hi, nice to see you here in Indonesia. If somehow you shoot film in Indonesia, how do you think it would be?

 Where do you guys get all of your cameras and camera gear from for the movie?
Because I want to get a steady cam but every thing is so expensive, is it sponsored, hired or do you own it ?
Also, I would love to be like you guys one day, you have the life.

 Great film boys!!

One question, who picks the songs for each segment? Is it the riders choice or do you guys pick during editing?
  • + 7
 We all work together on the music choices. A lot of the time its determined by how well the song flows with the footage and the feel of the segment.
  • + 8
 how can you be so awesome ? are you guys living your dreams ? Wink

  • + 4
 First of all congratulations that was a great film. How posible is it that if some friends and I go to sunshine coast are able to help building trails and ride with you, a trip with the locals of every place are always great, you get to know more of the lifestyle in other places. or Are you going to do like camp of champions in whistler so we mortals can ride with you guys that´ll be great.
  • + 2
 Something like that is quite possible. It all depends when you travel and if you are here when we are here. Our year is quite busy and its always hard to plan when we will actually be home. Summer Gravity Camp in Whistler is always a great opportunity to get to ride with us during the summer!
  • + 5
 How do you choose music for segmets? Is it your personal preference or is it more like "what suits better"? Is there a chance we're going to see a movie with similar music to NWD from you ? Great movie regardless ! Cheers
  • + 10
 Its a bit of both, but most of all its what in our opinion fits it best. While NWD has some awesome music, our style is so different. We know a of people may not be the biggest fan of certain songs we use but we simply cant please everyone. That being said we would be super stoked to have people give us some music they would like to see in a film or video! We love all types of music, and its hard to find good music. If its got the right feel its perfect, regardless of the genre.
  • + 1
 So cool to hear this! i've been playing music my whole life and have been getting into recording & mixing music with my portable rig. We are The Rogue Scholars and annually for 5 yrs now we get together (in bc) and focus on hanging/catching up, and tracking tunes. We handle every step of it (except mastering) and own all the material. 2 more singles (have 7 currently) to be released in the next month & have a backlog of tunes coming. Love your guys' approach to life with the bikes and filming. Bought the 2-day pass at your park. Arrival is Super inspiring. If ever you need a tune from us, it's yours. Here's a link to us on itunes (bit.ly/1aqf6SI). I might suggest "Back to My Mountain" for a listen; but we have a widespread of influences. If you want to hear more of the tunes w/out paying, send me a private message and i'll dropbox ya. We've a tune called "Dip your head in the Cooler" that's coming out soon too. Rob.

 Have you guys ever raced, if not why did you choose not to since the speed is evidently there? Cheers

 How long did it take for you guys to go pro and get into making all these awesome movies and making your bike park?
  • + 11
 We've ridden bikes our whole lives. The past 6 − 7 years we have slowly become recognized and moved into the position of being professionals on our bikes and as film makers and trail builders. It didnt happen all at once.
  • + 1
 Cool thanks guys!
  • + 7
 How old were you guys when you first started mountain biking and filming?
  • + 4
 roughly between 12-14 when we started bringing a camera on rides we went on and when we got home after we could watch all the moments that made us laugh or get us stoked to go back out and ride. It hasn't really changed too much since, natural progression took over!
  • + 1
 Thanks!
  • + 6
 Which song was the one which caused the delay of a couple weeks, and is it still on the project as of now?
  • + 5
 The song we had in place for the first Brazil segment is the song that ended up not being possible to license. The song was Desperate Youth by Santigold. It was unfortnate that we weren't able to license the song, because everything was clear until the last minute. It came down to Santigolds choice not to have her music used in action sports films anymore, and we can respect that choice.
  • + 1
 Since I saw the whistler premiere did I hear the segment with Santigold? I don't remember.
  • + 7
 How often do you guys get injured?
  • + 5
 Not too often, but it does happen.
  • + 5
 I'm assuming your main focus will be the CGP from here on out. Any other events or projects you guys are planning in between?
  • + 6
 Coast Gravity Park will definitely be a continuous focus of ours, being able to design and create our vision is something we have always loved to do. Definitely expect to see a good dosage of Coastal crew content throughout next year! Always keeping the wheels in motion with the Crew.
  • + 3
 Hey coastal crew! I gotta ask you this after watching Arrival(which was outstanding by the way), what camera were you using to get those chest cam shots? I thought it couldn't have been a go pro because it is just so HD. Lastly, what editing software do you guys use? Thanks, Hugh
  • + 6
 Hahah good eye. We use a customized bag which holds our 5DMkIII on the chest of the rider. It sounds cumbersome but its really really easy to ride with. We run a 15mm fish eye or 16mm wide angle lens depending on the look we want. Eg. in Arrival the Whistler seggy is shot a 16mm wide and but every other POV shot is done with a 15mm fish. We did this because the 16mm shows a more natural look where as the 15mm fish shows the action more accurately and most of all provides a wider field of view. For editing Arrival we used Final Cut. Since then we have switched to Adobe Premier Pro. You can't go wrong with either platform.

 How close is the Coastal Gravity Park to the water? I'm in Nanaimo and wondering what it's going to cost me to buy a boat, mount a bike rack to it and get my butt over there on a regular basis. That's, of course, assuming that I could get my bike from the water to the park... Thanks. Smile
  • + 3
 The Park is only about 1km from down town Sechelt which is boat accessible. Another great option for anyone on the island or flying to YVR first is to take a float plane. There are 2 float plane business near the base of the park, you could be there in 20 minutes.

 A few questions here please answer at least one of them!!!
1st for Dylan. As a budding videographer I'd like to know the programs you use to edit your stuff?
2nd for all yall is did you always ride FR/DH or did you start somewhere else? I ask because I have a hard time deciding what style to ride I mean I love them all and I want to do FR/DH but living on small town Ontario that really isn't in my cards. I guess it's what style did you start with and what-apart from general riding-helped shape your skills? Thanks for your time and i can't wait to watch Arrival, stoked!!
  • + 8
 For Arrival we used Final Cut to edit.

If I was you I would try to take a step back and not worry about the "style" of riding you want to get into. Just get a sweet all mountain bike and go find some trails and learn what you love to ride the most. You can express self how ever you want thats the beauty of mountain biking, don't bound your self to a certain style. If your riding and having fun thats all that matters. Thats where it started for all of us. Just riding trails with your friends and having fun is the best place to start.

 Awesome edit boys. When you motivate thousands around the world to get out and shred, I'd say it's mission accomplished.
The Pinkbike Store says the dvd/bluray set is out of stock. Any idea when it will be back in and when the rest of us can get our hands on a physical copy? I know a lot of people are wondering the same thing. I'd love to throw you guys some money for the sickest edit of the year!

 Hey Kyle, you were a legend in PG growing up, I remember you even as a kid in John Mcginnis Junior High. Is there anything you would like to see different in terms of organization/trail building in PG? What got you in gear to move down south and become more know in the scene?

Keep up the great work CC
  • + 3
 Haha that is awesome! I don't think I would be where I am today without having started in PG and getting to ride with all the local guys I grew up around who would take me on the trails. I want to see the riding scene in PG stay strong in all the spots I grew up riding, like Pidherny, Cranbrook and the University trails. I loved when Tabor was open too. I know theres a lot of great people there keeping the scene going and I don't think that will ever change. My move from PG to the coast was driven by my search for the opportunity to be able to ride year round and submerge myself further in the mountain bike scene by being in a place where there were more opportunities to do so. -Kyle

 If you were a type of animal, what would you be and why?
  • + 2
 I love the inclusion of the cameras themselves in the film... but was this a conscious decision made early on or did you decide to do this because of the freedom it gave you? Not having to worry about getting in each other's shots must have been nice. The shot looking at the screen of the main camera on the cable rig was one of my personal favourites... such a cool idea. Oh yeah, you guys NAILED it.

 Thanks! We did plan to allow of certain shots to give the viewer a different perspective and show a bit more of what is happening behind the scenes.

 It defo helped to show your relationship with MTB both as filmers and riders. It was also good to see the results you can achieve with equipment at a reasonable cost. Mind you, I've just looked at how much that 70-200 costs. Holy shit! Thanks for making my night, not every day you get to talk to the people behind such an awesome creation. I hope you're all happy with the response it has had.

 I know that the questions have stopped but I just wanted to thank the coastal crew for making such an amazing film!! Amazing sound track, amazing riding, amazing bikes, amazing people and just wow!!

 At what point in your lives did you decide to chase the dream lifestyle you guys live? Rather than getting a job for financial security and riding/filming in your spare time? I'm just real interested in how you made that decision, as for me its almost fantasy and in my life making that decision to go for it and chase your lifestyle would take some and would be something of a risk! Cheers guys

 Hi guys ! I loved your movie, one of the best I've ever seen Smile

Just one question : The specialized you ride in the film have a personal design or have we a chance to get one of them with the same colour next year ?
(sorry for my english...I'm from Switzerland)
  • + 2
 The bikes we rode in the film are custom one off color ways that we do our selves, its fun for us to come up with an idea and having Specialized allow us to have fun with our vision which makes for a bike that no one else has. Sorry but these 3 bikes are one off Coastal crew wrapped.
  • + 1
 Ok too bad... The blue and orange one is juste incredible Wink ! Thanks for answering and hope that your futur film will be as good as this one (and even better Smile )
  • + 1
 Hey coastal crew! First off, this is a sick idea to talk to your fans and secondly, question time. What is the possibility of you guys you guy creating a program that gets volunteers to build trails locally? That would be sick and it would help people like me out greatly. I would definitely volunteer for something like that and I think that you guys have the power to do it. Thank you!
  • + 1
 Local trail organizations or local MTB community leaders do a great job in organizing volunteer trail building days on their trails. We stand behind that 100% and contribute as much as we can to our local trails. Doing so on a bigger scale is tough at this point because our current work load is so heavy. Maybe its something for the future though!
  • + 1
 Thanks for the feedback! I live in a town with a population of about 5,000 people so the closest trail is about 3+ hours away, and that's highland. So I'll try to get involved with the town and try to go and build some trails! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

 How much time is invested into each minute of a movie like Arrival? From planning a line, to grooming a trail, riding it over and over to get all the angles, then editing it into a cohesive scene seems like each little clip would take forever.

 CC, do you guys think you would be where you are today or at least close to it if you hadn't picked up the backing of a major sponsor such as Spez? If not, how much has having the backing of them boosted your position and visibility?
  • + 3
 Being on board with Specialized has been huge for us. They allow us to keep our direction and goals natural, and they listen to and support the ideas we have. It is perfect because they share the same drive, passion and direction that we do when it comes to throwing your leg over a bike!

 I wonder that (probably you used the high speed cameras for slow motion) is this possible converting a 30 fps video to 120 fps(or more) without loss of quality( I mean significant loss) ? whic software/plug-in you are using for that? and how can you set up the cable-camera thing and isn't that hard to follow the rider ?

I live just down the road from where you guys were filming and when Rosco told me you guys were there filming while I was away at a race... Well my entire life was destroyed hahaha. Maybe see yeah guys next time!! Rosco and I have been sending some of the jump on are moto rigs and i think we go some more stezz then you guys did Wink

My question is for INTERN if possable. If he had to pick between his regular PB and J sandwitches and his favorite Taco, what would it be?? Remeber which ever one you don't pick you can never eat again!!!!!!!

  • + 1
 First of all, I've been a huge fan from your day 1 (that would be the part from kranked 7 if i remember corectly,) then coastal crew series and now full time films + bikeparks + all the stuff you do! But nothing can compe to level of excitement the Kranked 8 brought with another amazing trail + unforgetable X marks the spot stunt! So I went out and rebuild one of our old trails so it would fit coastal crew style...
Question is, did I succeed (lets imagine scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is gravel road and 10 is Arrival material)? This is the video of me and my friend riding it. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/251264/ (focus only on the trail, dont want to use this post as promotion for me/my riding/moviemaker/etc. ). Thanks!

 Great film, I use a FS700 at work. What were some of the limitations or frustrations you had using the FS700? Like how did you do an End Trigger on the cable cam for super slow mo? Thanks for doing this AMA!
  • + 3
 Not too many complaints at all. The end trigger is a very strong tool for action sports. One stand out flaw is the screen. It sucks, especially once you put the eye piece over it, its flops around pretty easy. That being said it was still quite easy to expose and shoot a sharp image. They are amazing cameras and awesome bang for your buck. I dont feel the need to upgrade any time soon. Cable cam was pretty easy, the run needed to take a little less time than the buffer allows. With an operator at the top running the cable and another at the end hitting end trigger. Worked perfect! -Dylan
  • + 1
 You are really inspiring I'd say. Every single movie you guys make, makes me want to go out and ride, and dig.
Thanks and keep up that good work.
Can you tell me how to get these awesome trails set up? Over here in Germany it's really hard, to get a trail built that wont be teared down.
Your trails are always really smooth and look like really good times.
  • + 4
 We build trails by using the terrain the best we can. It just takes time and effort to make the trails ride how you want them to. Just get a shovel in the dirt, build some turns, and ride them! The more you do it the more you will learn what works best. Have fun!

How do you do it? What a about the question of money ?when you get into production do you raise money from your Sponcers ? Can you tell how much time and money cost to make a film
I have full acsees to all the shooting gear that I want but I really don't know how to start and it seams so difficult ....
How ever I'm happy to see you combine art and ride!!!! You are lucky !!!
Thanks

  • + 1
 Looking at your pics it seems you ride really well. So you have the riding element sorted out and you have acess to the equipment.I bet you're gona have at least a couple of friends that ride as good as you so you have a small "crew" to ride with. You could start doing short edits showcasing how you and your friends and see how it progresses. You could get a couple of friends to operate the cameras as you ride. Since youa re already a director you can use it to your advantage and make small themed edits that tell a story of some sorts.

I understand it's dificult starting to film somewhere where mountain biking isn't as widespread as Canada. I guess the situation in Israel is similar to Greece where I live where not many people ride and mountain biking is not well known. Nevertheless I've seen nice dits done by small groups of friends here in Greece and I guess you could do the same. I guess it all comes to starting out small. If you try to make a film like the ones made by the Coastal Crew on your first try it wil be overwhelming and you'll probably fail. Start slow and enjoy what you do. If you post any edits drop me a line. Cheers!

 I understand the dileme between riding and filming and it must be evn more difficult since making film is something you do mots of the day in your work. Still I think it would be awesome to showcase the riding scene in Israel. I wasn't aware there is such a big scene with so many riders. Here's a link with the work of some guys in Greece that shows what can be done by just a few people with passion about bikes and filming 3ridebros-mtb.blogspot.gr I thinki it's good for motivation. Let me know when you make your film!
  • + 1
 You guys obviously have a like a behind-the-scenes camera rolling and filming the production and everything else. Do some people get really self-conscious about being filmed all the time or is everyone used to being filmed constantly these days?
  • + 3
 We are so lucky because every camera operation is a close friend of ours. Its almost like no one is filming you at all, we are so comfortable working together. We don't roll full time but enough to get a true look at whats going on.
  • + 4
 We are all pretty used to being filmed and having cameras rolling. Nic Genovese helped us out huge this year and kept the cameras rolling through out each days work. Often you forget theres even cameras filming you, and that creates the best content because everything is natural.
  • + 1
 You guys all killed it in arrival mad props. I noticed in one of the earlier questions you (norbs) mentioned you guys met in the MTB operations program at Capilano University. I currently attend the University of Colorado and the MTB scene seems to be growing a lot. I am curious if I were to propose to the University of Colorado to get a MTB operations program and get the ball rolling if I could get input from you guys on what you guys learned that made you so successful and if you guys would be willing to help me start the program in order to expand the sport?
  • + 1
 It seems like Curtis have the best ability when it comes to bike control ( not that Dyl and norbs doesn't kill it as well ), did you ever considered a racing career? maybe with the right program and support it might work for ya. just think about a coastal crew sesh at hafjell WC track...

 The slo mo footage is spectacular! Do you use thr red camera for slo mo? how many frames per second to get that crisp detailed slo mo effect.
Do you own the red cameras or rent?
  • + 7
 The movie is shot on a 5DMkIII and the SonyFS700. All slo mo was shot at 120 or 240 fps on the FS700. No Red cameras, they are excessive and very overkill in my opinion. -Dylan
  • + 1
 Thank You Dylan. May I add I luv this film!
Im guessing the FS700 uses a full frame sensor.
Perhaps one day SLR,s will have 120/240 frames per sec. settings.
  • + 3
 The FS700 is a crop sensor but the Metabones speedbooster makes it a full frame camera and also gives you another stop of light. Your f/2.8 lens is all of a sudden a f/2.0 and full frame!
  • + 1
 I looked up the Sony FS700 14 stops of latitude. Proprietary Cmos chip built for shooting vid. (Sony is one of the only manafactures of sensors)
240 frames at full HD.
Cost about one quarter the cost of a Red camera.
Something new to lust over...........
My Canon point n shoot does 120/240 frames per sec. At 640 by 480 lol.
Mind you is shoots full HD at 60 frames per sec.
You might say my vids are a bit cruder than your outstanding effort.

 Movie was sweet but Brazil section seemed to be lacking. Why would you send a world cup racer to hit some sketchy drops and ride some mediocre trails padless (first part of section, once bernardo was in the mix it was cool) and not just film him here in B.C. riding fast in his element? IMO the part with bernardo was cool and seeing them shred together was neat, but stevies solo part at the beginning of the brazil segment didn't really show his riding how it could have.
  • + 5
 They obviously were taking a chance to go to Brazil. As they said above, it was their hardest shoot because of the humidity and heat. We aren't going to progress unless we take some chances right?
  • + 5
 We took a big chance by going down to Brazil. As noted, there were a lot of set backs during the trip. We all did our best while we were down there and we are really happy with how the segments turned out. We did research the trails and locations before hand, but you never actually know what you'll get until you set foot in a new location. Stevie absolutely killed it for us down there.
  • + 1
 First congrats Dudes you're so CHINGONES (coolness+masterfull workmanship) on every aspect ; Build, Ride, Film and Rn'R n' !
I love the contrast between the number one cup racer and young gun fighting for his dream, like Stevie did it, and about the trails B-rain grade it is feel kind of disrespect to grade someone else work mediocre just because god knows why kind parameters are you using to GRADEa trail. I like the diversity, because some times ride the same style too many time becomes boring

 Hey guys, love the preview. As stated by others, I really look up to you guys and how you are progressing the sport. I'm in Memphis, TN and there is not really much to ride, nor do I even have a bike at the moment. I've always wanted a dual suspension bike after riding a Specialized big hit and also trashing my Hardrock when I was younger. What words of wisdom do you have for someone who dreams of riding downhill and perfectly sculpted jumps everyday, yet has no money, no bike, and no place to ride? Also what were you guys riding before trek and specialized handed you the best of the best equipment. This sport isn't cheap, especially for a poor college student. I'm at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi when i'm not in memphis, where there is also nothing to ride.
  • + 1
 Congrats guys, for accomplishing your dreams. I grew up over there and have seen so much wicked talent that comes off the Coast especially on 2 wheels. Bmx, Xc rippers, and freeride. What is it about that place that breeds excellence?

 It's autumn time over here, shitty weather, cold,... so watching the movie yesterday made me want summer so bad! The big bike hasn't been out since august but tomorrow it will get some proper shredding. You guys take so many different angles and positions to shoot riding to make it even more spectacular. Do you decide what angles and positions to shoot on the spot or do you prepare them long time in advance?
Really enjoyed the movie! Big fan of Matt by the way!
  • + 2
 Thanks! Hopefully your ride will be good! We decide on angles once we are actually in the location for every shoot. You don't really know what something will look like until you set up and view the shot through the camera.
  • + 1
 When you shoot with another rider (not in the costal crew), is it like the movie industry where they get paid a certain amount for their time? Or does it depend more on your personal relationship with the rider? What about traveling expenses? I would think sponsors would account for some of that...
  • + 4
 No we don't pay the riders. As a rider its you job to get exposure in movie and photos or win events. That hows you you make a living. We choose to work with people that work hard and deserve the exposure. We have a platform to help riders grow, get exposure and in the end make a living. We try our best to make that happen for our friends and fellow riders. Usually the riders help us by getting support from their sponsors to make certain trips or shoots happen. Its a collective effort between the riders and the filmers. We are kind of one in the same, its all part of the movie making process.

 I've been following yous guys since I took up mtb'n two years ago. I was late getting into the sport, only started when I was 22. Your vids on the net have inspired me to think about moving to Canada. I'm not getting any younger so I thought let's head to the place where my game can be tested everyday and hopefully someday be able to come back home and shred the trails with ease. There really is no other country that compares to Canada and it's scene for mtb'n. What advise would you give to someone starting out late looking to develop their skills rapidly?

 Hey guys, I have to commend you for all of your hard work and effort on all of the projects you guys are currently working on. The work ethic that you each possess is very clearly aligned and can be seen in the quality of everything you have produced whether it is your riding, filmography or business ventures.

About 20 seconds after you released the news of CGP I purchased passes for myself and family. I am extremely excited to see this project come to light.

  • + 6
 Every new build has to be tested for the first time and there's always a chance it could go wrong. Trial and error is something we have always gone with, enough experience and time on your bike always makes for a better execution. Work your way up, and if you want something bad enough, dig deep and know your limits. You know what they say, "if it feels good do it". The same thing applies when testing something bigger than you're used to.

 The motivation comes from the satifaction you get when you build a line that you're able to ride, whether its a piece of trail or a progressive move. We put a lot of effort and detail into the trails we build because we want to be proud of the work we do.

 What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you during a film shoot?
  • + 6
 Probably the worst thing that we can talk about would be Matty Miles accident at Retallak when we were out in the middle of know where. A rider that had passed us on there way up while we were shooting ended up riding right into the line of jumps 5 minutes later that Matty was riding. Being a few hundred feet down the trail out of site, this rider ends up hiking her bike up the middle of the landing of the first jump after they hear Matty yell "dropping innnn". A head on collision mid air at very high speed could have ended up much worse than his dislocated elbow, broken hand and severed tendon on his index finger with 2 surgeries, so happy he was able to walk away from that one. Matty is back 6+ months later riding like a boss! Note to every rider out there, walking up trails can result in very bad injuries ( stating the obvious ) but I never want to see that happen again.
  • + 1
 Again, what happen to the girl?
  • + 3
 She had a helmet and backpack on and walked away with only a bruised hand. The dirt was full of shale and rock. Not a nice place to hit the ground!

 I hear there aren't many chicks on the Coast? Do you guys use dating sites? Ever been speed dating in Cali? I met some real sweethearts down there last year.

 How are you going to having Coast Gravity Park open all year round with it being in Canada? Also, how to you get such gnarly whips?

 How many DVDs or Downloads do you think you will sell? As a rider do you usually earn something by making those movies or is it "only" marketing for yourself?

 Any chance you guys would be able to come out to Fresno California? It would be sweet to have a few pros at the local park. Vid got me so stoked btw!

 Who started SecondBase? Did all of you have an interest in filming, or was it Dylan who convinced you to join so you could all have a part filming and riding in the film?

 While we were filming a person came onto the landing of one of the jumps in the line. Nobody saw the person and Matty dropped in and landed on the person, causing a major crash and injuries. Totally unexpected and unfortunate.

 How does a perfect Riding session/day Looks Like for you Guys? And how does a normal/usual "day at the Office" Looks like for you?

  • + 1
 Your film making is amazing!! Where did you guys learn the film skills? What cameras do you use to make the videos? It is amazing the pictures you guys get in slow motion!
  • + 2
 In High school we were offered photography as an elective class. Learning how to shoot still images on an old film camera using manual lenses at an early age helped understand the basics. Then its figuring out how to bring your vision to its end result, using Sony fs700 we have high speed possibilities to show all the moments we really enjoy seeing when watching someone ride.

 Banger film as usual! Now the important bit,

When I quit my job, I had some money saved up and I just wanted to go ride, build and film. Dyl, and Kyle had the same vision and drive to just go and have fun and do what ever we can to get by just to ride our bikes. Do what makes you happy. - Curtis

 Had a terrible crash at rampage though.

..and big thumbs up for that sweet park you have created!
  • + 4
 Our park is so close to the ocean that we hardly get any snow at all. Depending on the weather in any given winter we may not get any snow at all. So if we do get snow it is very minimal and should be easy to broom off the trails. Ice is more of an issue and we will take it as it comes. Park and trail closures will be very minimal during the winter!

 Hey just to tell you guys, your the whole reason I got into mountain biking. Here in Indiana, mountain biking is basically nonexistent in terms of downhill and freeride. I stumbled across your segment in Kranked 8 back in 2011 and I have been mountain biking since.

This question is for Curtis, How much did the crash you took in From the Inside Out slow your riding down? I know some people talk about air sickness after a bad crash and I was just curious if it that big of a crash messed with you any. It doesnt seem to be seeing how gnarly your segment in Arrival is. Your one of my favorite riders dude. Also is there any chance of more webisodes later on like you did in the past? Amazing movie guys, Coastal Crew never disappoints!
