 Just need a good song and its perfect!

 I think this song fits perfectly. Even the brake sounds match the music. I wish all my fingers were thumbs, cause this video really deserves all of them. Smile

 vod!!

 Ya I thought it was fine even though it sounded like someone let 100 monkeys loose in the jungle
  • + 6
 I wonder how many times it took to ride that log!
  • + 6
 3 different angles for the video, so 3 times. It's not one that lends a safe option for falling off of.

 Great video! Perfect showcase for shore riding.

What trail is this? Some parts of it looks very familiar but I can't point a finger at it..
  • + 5
 that trail looks assassin...soo many things can go wrong! nice vid

 hey now thats one STD id love to catch!

 @SIGINT there are plenty of real videos of STDs in action. Those sites are just usually frowned upon...

 this is one of the coolest vids ive seen on pinkbike. had such a cool feeling to it, and the riding was amazing. i would eat it every time.

 only terrible bikes have squeeky brakes

 fantastic job! Really got some sweet shots in there. I found this video very unique in that there are hardly any VODs that are super wet and rainy with water splashing everywhere. I live in marin county where there isn't any snow in the winter so I like seeing the kind of winter riding I do. Great cinematography, props.

 no, only dusty or wet brakes squeak or make noises most of the time, theres nothing wrong with his bike..

 3 months on and you decide to comment... good job though, i thought i had lost this video when i forgot to fave it.

 Well done Brad, this is hands down the best self-filmed video I've ever seen!
  • + 16
 you shore boys have got it waaaay too good. always jealous when i watch vids there
  • + 11
 Wink alright, and he cleans all the hard parts in the sopping wet. Props!!!!
  • + 12
 Gotta be at least VOD. Shot solo and it is *that* good.
  • + 7
 Bro you should have sold that segment! I've seen a lot of MTB movies and there is absolutely NO comparison to capturing North Shore vibe, not even close! I have always considered this to be one of the gnarliest trails in BC, perhaps the world! That log ride alone, is death if you fall. Awakener is a close 2nd.
  • + 6
 The quality of the angles and the fact that the technical trails lend themselves to static shots made me not realise this was a self edit until the credits at the end. This must have taken a lot of hard work. Well done!

 If only all STD's were this nice

 This is genius! Really love the music in combination with the brake squeal Wink . Everything just goes together so well. Great job!
  • + 1
 This is probably the first "shore" video that really made me feel like I was there. Amazing you shot all this yourself, must have been tiring! Loved how you kept the ambient noise, and that trail looks freakin' surreal. Beautifully done.

 Dear canada....im reformed and I really want to play in your north shore......epic vid man!!

 Brad, great job bro...it's awesome to see you living out your dreams...thanks for representing all the Hickory NC folks so well. God bless you! paul
  • + 1
 That was an incredible video brother! And that is why us, well a good percent of us in this amazing province of British Columbia, know how to ride bikes! Just sayin! Loved everything about that vid. Really liked the sound of the wet, squeaky brakes...brings back fond memories. Smile

 How the hell do you make such sick videos by yourself. I do not understand. I almost didnt realize there were no panning or dolly shots because it is so well put together! Huge props man, inspiring.

 anyone knows how to download this video and save in my computer?

 One of the best VODs in a while. Serious skills, you'd have to have an STD riding the wet and dirty like that! I've I wouldn't take those lines if those trails where dry!
