Even if you don’t ride bikes this 45min film is pretty amazing…some insane cinematography, cool visuals and good narration. Put the kettle, make a cuppa and check this sh1t out (make sure you watch in HD) /tHRx

Among the most influential skateboarders the industry has ever seen, Bob Burnquist is still innovating. In his new webisode series, Burnquist grants his fans exclusive access to the private domain in which so many of his contributions to skateboarding were born, his backyard in Southern California, better known as “Dreamland.” Hence, “The Dreamland Series.”
To lead off the series, we see something from Burnquist that hasn’t been seen since 2010: a full-length video part filled with never-before-seen footage. And, the Hip. Yes, he added a Hip feature onto his personal MegaRamp. A Hip that starts up on a hill and sends him across a 15-foot gap into the 25-foot quarterpipe. You know, something mellow.

Take three parts equal love for shooting photos, editing video, and riding bikes. Next toss in that nagging impulse to do something different, even if it requires hours of torturous work, and this video is what you get. In case your eyes deceive you, this is a stop-motion video. Every frame of the video is a photograph, the rider and the bike laying posed on a concrete floor. The ground and trees were later drawn on each photo with a digital pen. Weeks of planning, thirty-five hours of photography totally 1000 pictures, followed by fifty long hours at the computer editing photos, audio, and video. 10,000 minutes of combined work for a two minute video? All worth it if it puts a smile on your face and sparks some creativity in your mind. Thanks for watching.
ALORS, at the end of last week I broke the 10km barrier and under the time I’d set myself of 50mins so I’m obviously moving in the right direction with this clueless training program I’ve set myself. I did it in 48:40 so not much to spare but I’m not sure if I’ll get any faster than that because it felt like I was pretty much flat out for the entire distance.
What it does mean, is that my goal of being able to run 12km in under 60mins by the time of the Tough Mudder at the beginning of June (well – end of May actually, as apparently you should rest up with no hardcore training for the week before a big race/event like this) is still on…like Donkey Kong 🙂
And even better news…is that those bad boys in the photo above turned up today! And. They. Feel. Awesome! Lots of support but very flexible and a serious tread pattern (is that only for tyres or can you use that for shoe soles too?) that looks like they’ll have me eating up these Alpine trails with no problem at all…well that’s the idea. And everyone knows red stuff makes you go faster anyway 😉
THIS awesome film is the latest edit by Filme von Draussen and it sure is a good one! This one film pretty much sums up what mountain biking is for me; Freedom, Adventure, Challenge and Pushing yourself both physically & mentally to the max…and then coming down again 🙂
“Life is like a mountain pass. Sometimes you have to suffer your way to the top. But once you get there, it’s worth all the effort. In August 2012, my friend Johannes Riebl and me set out to ride world’s most famous ski tour – on our mountain bikes. We came home with some incredible memories. And a film, to share our story” – Filme von Draussen
