    • Nice vid man, rider level is irrelevant though, come for a roll around Bristol, we can probably help with a few things too!
    • Thanks for the replies guys. Things have certainly come a long way from the last time I rode a trials bike. I’ve just bought a cheap echo control 26 and a monty 221 pr to see what feels best for me
    • Fair. I only catch a very few bits of the skate scene, so maybe I only catch the "touristy bits".
    • I'm sorry, I've missed all of this.
    • Yes and no...  Some of the Red Bull skate team have had some 'proper' skate videos that weren't gimmicky, and were just straight up skate edits, similar to the Rich Forne videos done for Monster.  Just seems to be that a lot of the riding side of Red Bull's videos need to have some kind of 'narrative' shoe-horned into them.  I suspect part of it might be that the production side is probably a lot different between the two.  From the random stuff I've read/heard about Red Bull productions, there's a lot more corporate kind of stuff involved, needs to be story-boarded, usually has to be producers/people like that involved who work with Red Bull, etc.  As a result I imagine you have to have more of a choreographed kind of video.  Kind of seems with Monster's support for video projects it's looser in some ways, although I believe they were the ones who said that everyone in the Make It Happen video had to wear helmets.  Pretty low bar for entry though to be fair... For people who prefer just riding and not-so-great music, someone's done a riding only cut: Does go to show that a lot of the riding is pretty serious, but as ever you have to persevere through the 'story' to get to it.  It didn't feel quite like this video was as well structured as some of Fabio's older videos, with just random "ready to be taken out and used as a viral social clip" sections put in there, but it does mean it'll appeal to more people I guess.  Would be cool to see a straight up riding video from him one day though, similar to Danny's Cascadia/Epecuen videos.
