Here we go again, halfway to freedom once more. It’s Wednesday, it’s vaguely lunch time’ish; so lets kick back, tune in and absorb another load of visual moving picture delights.
What have we got? There’s Nepal, India and South Africa. Some Hebden locals, some forum regulars, Nevis, Nyquist and a bit of Berlin. Skate, create, and transcend through surf.
It’s all good.
Mountain biking Kathmandu Valley, Nepal
This great little video showcases the amazing trails snaking through the valley high above Kathmandu in Nepal. For most people, Nepal means Himalayas, but the riding in the Kathmandu Valley definitely holds its own and is a perfect place to acclimatise for the big mountains! A film from H & I Adventures.

Ryan Nyquist BMX Big Trick Jump Session: Getting Awesome
Pro BMXer Ryan Nyquist steps it up with a mega jump and quarterpipe build and session at NorCal’s Freedom 40 trails. Ryan gets to work building the jump himself with a Bobcat, eventually bringing in larger reinforcements. With the jump finally built, the session kicks off with Ryan leading the charge including Omar Romero, Greg Watts, Brandon Semenuk, and Joel Hulsey—bangers ensue!
It’s like the bastard child of Strava and Instagram, for hipsters.
adidas Skateboarding Euro Lines with Dennis Busenitz
In conjunction with the release of his signature footwear models the Busenitz ADV, Vulc & Pro, Dennis travels to Europe doing what he does best… lots and lots of lines!
One man’s struggle to transcend.
“This humble film is about a friend of mine named Michael and his daily ritual to find his natural self through surfing.” says director Sean Mullens
