In a world of GoPro POV videos from nibbler jibbler street videos and skatepark sessions, it’s always rad to see something really crazy from somebody’s point of view. Last year we caught up with Mat Hoffman for an interview where we first found out about the massive ramp that Danny Way had built and Mat was riding, and calling the Secret Ninja Big Air Ramp. Since that day we’ve been anxiously waiting to see the footage from it. Thanks to X Games, we’ve been seeing some of the footage over the course of the week. Below you can find links to the 3 videos they released.
We figured that was all the footage from it… Then this morning we woke up to an email from the Condor himself with a link to a video he put together from some of the GoPro footage he collected during his sessions. This has footage from some of the first runs all the way up until the crash that obliterated his collarbone. Needless to say, after watching this we’re still completely blown away by just how big Mat has gone! This is an absolute MUST SEE. The big brother of the Secret Ninja Ramp is an absolute monster of a ramp.

“Here is my DIY edit I made riding Danny’s ramp. No interviews, I used a POV and then placed a few unmanned GoPro’s around and let them shoot continuously while I rode. This is my original edit I’ve been holding onto for about a year. It’s not the best quality; I just shot it to document the ride, since I went out their solo. Then Stew and Alyssa added to it for the recent posts on X Games, so I’ve kept this one out of sight until now.
