 Fabulous! Great video, soundtrack is excellent! My type of trails, I'd love to ride with you guys.
The stunt at 9:40 looks just like the one I've built last winter. Thanks for posting, you had 4 good days of riding and memories to last with this superb video.
VOD!

 If you are ever in Japan you can definitely hit us up for a ride. Would love to ride your trails to !

 I don't know what's crazier, hearing Australian legend Paul Kelly in his Professor Ratbaggy disguise doing the last song or now knowing that Japan in the summer is as fun as Japan in the winter. Japan kicks ass period. Hit the chocolate aisle when you go. Best chocolate going. Great vid guys.

 Cheers man.
A fellow Aussie ?
Must be to know bout Mr. Kelly !
Yeah Japan has been awesome.. so much untapped potential and none of those 'whose trails are these' problems.
Am heading back to Cairns for a while soon so am soaking it all up AMAP.
RideOn bro.

 Nah, Canadian. Been a PK fan since about 83. I'll buy anything he puts out. Actually I'll buy music from an artist where Paul walked by the studio when it was getting recorded. HAHA. Got to see him on a bunch of shows over here where it was like he was performing in my living room. Amazing.

 Ha ! Didnt realize PK even performed outside of Oz. Grew up on PK and the coloured girls meself. Dad was ahuge fan. Also lovin Colin Hays recent accoustic work (sans Men at work). Check out Blue King Brown if you havent already too. You might be Canadian but Music taste alone gets you Honorary Aussie Status, if you care to claim it !

 It's pretty rare that he tours that's for sure. It's why i stalked him a bit last time.
I thought I got honorary Aussie status when I learned to eat a pie one handed with no spills! Australia has some insane music. So much great stuff. Old garage rock to punk rock to modern stuff. I lived in Falls Creek and Melb/Geelong/JanJuc for 6 months in 83. It was fun. First person to snowboard in Australia. Saw so many great bands that still are my favorites.

 Oh man.. probably more Australian than me. Thanks for bringing snowboarding downunder in effect bringing us out of the dark ages ! Cheers man.

 great editing guys. it kept the 12 min vid entertaining, not an easy job at all. nice one. i think its time to try some Japanese trails, they are kinda like our local trails here in Hong Kong.
  • + 1
 Cheers mate. Yes, J-trails are all good. I am sure you will find good trails no matter where you go in Japan. Like what I have seen so far of the trails in HK too. Ride On in Hong Kong !
