Spotted this over on Can You Dig It and got so stoked. Shawn Shimkets did what a ton of us dream to do and that’s tear up the entire backyard to build a dialed set of trails to ride. This video gives you a look at the yard, some riding and the story of how these trails came to be. So good.
“The May 2013 12 Films project covers the story behind Shawn Shimket’s backyard in Escondido, CA. Shawn has taken a childhood dream of having backyard trails & made it a reality with the help of his friends & family.
