Pointed downhill, you hit the turn hard, brake a little late so you let off, trust in your bike. Lean the bike over and feel the tires grip, on the limit, not quite on the sidewall. Your arms tingle, everything makes sense and nothing matters for an instant. We’re not the only ones after this. Meet the world class downhill skateboarders of Santa Barbara who we met on a post work ride and dreamed up this collaboration. We thought we’d create a video of our dance downhill with these men, bike and board in unison, a shared expression of a life lived away from digital noise, where humans put faith in each other and their personal equipment.
“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”
― Jack Kerouac
