Midweek Mini Movies 133

by 6

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.

  1. Ha. Was only watching the first vid. Colours of Kathmandu last night. After my gf and I had booked our tickets there for later this year. Engage smug mode. Do I take my own bike or not? Seems to be a few bike shops and hire companies with their finger on the pulse. Don’t want no clunker.

  2. That Surf vid is stunning and inspirational.

  3. 2 weeks ago i was riding those exact trails in kathmandu – they’re excellent!!

    suddenly became dusty in the room when the surfing vid came on. hero.

  4. Loved the surf film. So much passion for his sport to do that every day!

  5. That Surf vid is stunning and inspirational.
    +1 – I might normally skip anything that says it’s about someone ‘finding themselves’ but wors’ and yetitony’s comments piqued my interest. Thanks guys…

  6. Surf vid is incredible and humbling, Makes my feeble excuses for not riding enough lately rather shameful….its too cold….its too wet….the trails are all muddy……..get a grip!
