Coastal Crew Ep4. - Pre-season with Mike Hopkins

While the world was worrying about the warm weather for the Olympics, we were reveling it. Mike Hopkins, of many fames, came down to Roberts Creek to hang out and ride with us for a couple of weeks.

Mike is a fantastic guy to spend any amount of time with, his relaxed and calm personality, and most of all, he is really damn good on a bike. While he was here we obviously wanted to shoot and showcase some of Mike's pre-season antics. Why he was here riding on the coast with us and not up to his armpits in snow being a pro skier.


Dylan worked his creative magic shooting video as Curtis, Kyle, Callum and Mike tore a strip out of a rad local trail called Viper. Thanks to a little mild drizzle the trail was in perfect shape and Dyl captured the essence of why we spend as much time as possible riding together on our home trails. There is nothing better than hot laps with your best friends. Period.


It came time to shoot Mike ripping solo. We picked a couple of trails that we thought would best show Mike's power as a rider. After Mike blasting some RC loam was captured, the crew moved on to the final trail we had picked for Mike. This trail showcased the blistering speed and fluidity with which Mike can rail his bike down a mountain. With both cameras rolling and Mike pinning it, the shoot was wrapped up with all the footage in the bag. It was a great couple of weeks with Mike. After we topped it off with a few beach fires, ocean golf and Caribrews.

Coastal Crew Ep.3 - Dunes & Loam

Thanks to this rather lovely El Nino year, we have had one of the best winters any of us can remember. The days have been bright and mild. The rain has been falling in just the right amounts that the trails have stayed in near perfect condition.

Due to the fact that our local trails were in prime condition, we felt that it was the perfect time to showcase Curtis’ talent for smashing corners, romping at excessive speeds and making it all look way too easy. It’s hard not to love Curty’s style, it’s like a heat seeking missile, quietly stealthy on its path, picking the straightest line to its target and then boom! Goodbye berm/flat turn/loam rut etc.


After a day watching Curtis shred we decided we needed a change. An early morning ferry ride and a 5 hour drive landed us in another world. Our damp hero dirt was replaced with Mars-like space dust and our cedar forests with huge hoodoos. We brought everyone’s favorite ginger photographer Nicolas Tectonic Teichrob with us to capture the action in still form. Curtis took care of most of the filming. We found some really fun lines that day, some made even better by the fact that Dylan and Kyle could ride them side by side.


After lots of laughter and a load of great shots, we set up camp in the wilderness. The next morning we cruised back to our land of loam, shaking the dust out of our hair the whole way home.
