Dane Searls: Giants Of Dirt Part 3

The Giants of Dirt Project began in 2010 when Dane Searls brought the idea to Unit Clothing, his sponsor. Over the next 12 months, together they built and tested the line of jumps in Boonah. Dane finally completed his life long goal in November 2011, by riding and pulling tricks through the entire set of jumps. Giants of Dirt 3 is the realization of Dane's dream.

 Dane has always inspired me to ride, and to keep life real, everyone should look up to this guy. Have a look at what he's brought into this sport. His atmosphere he brought. The fun. The excitement. Rest in peace buddy, you'll be greatly missed.
