I’m not sure who makes up the Scoop Dunk crew, but there’s definitely some real solid riding in this new edit. Take a peek.
“Here it is, the teaser of this years Let it Ride trip.
Destination: The Canary Islands
Two crews of 8 people each flew into Tenerife to meet up and get their missions. The next morning one crew would get on a ferry to the neighbor island, Gran Canaria.
So for the first 5 days both teams had an island each to explore, before swapping islands, cars, house keys and spots half way thru the trip.
The mission was easy – find great spots and have a good time riding a bike. Both teams came back safe and now they share their 10 days with you.

Dane Searls will forever be remembered as a legend.
THE FINAL CHAPTER IN THE GIANTS OF DIRT PROJECT CELEBRATES THE LIFE AND DEDICATION OF DANE SEARLS, 1988-2011.
December 20, 2011 — The final video release for Professional Freestyle BMX rider Dane Searls sees him successfully ride the biggest dirt jumps in history, clearing distances up to 60 feet (18 metres) on a BMX.
The Giants of Dirt Project began in 2010 when Dane Searls brought the idea to Unit Clothing, his sponsor. Over the next 12 months, together they built and tested the line of jumps in Boonah, (west of the Gold Coast, Queensland) on the farm of fellow Unit rider Freestyle Motocross Pro Matt Schubring. Sheer determination saw Dane push through many painful crashes and set backs, including the devastating Queensland floods of 2010. Dane finally completed his life long goal in November 2011, by riding and pulling tricks through the entire set of jumps. Giants of Dirt 3 is the realization of Dane’s dream.
A custom built drop in ramp was constructed and the final jump in the set of four jumps measures 60 feet (18 metres) from dirt take off to dirt landing.
Two days after fulfilling his dream, Dane was involved in an accident and suffered critical head injuries, placing him in a coma for five days. Dane passed away on November 25, 2011 in hospital due to injuries sustained.
His death sent shock waves through the BMX community and he will be long remembered as an amazingly kind person and as a professional athlete who pushed the boundaries of the sport of BMX.

As many of you know, some of Cult‘s frames are made here in the U.S. Will Hickson recently went and filmed one of their frames being pieced together. This is pretty cool. I wouldn’t mind seeing more videos that show how products are made since I feel like the majority of people really don’t know what it takes to make some things.
