I've seen it many times. I'll agree with that. Best freeride video i've ever seen.

Favorite Scene: All the Hawaii footage. Especially when Shandro and Watson are bombing the singletrack on the mountain side.

How happy does Shandro look when he is doing all that single track. And that gap that Romaniuk does is HUGE.

Also, I want a pink Bighit, stupid, lucky Berrecloth

Dude, the way the N.S. seg. at the end flows is off the hook! Wade Simmons is liquid.

Wade simmons is untouchable. Ihave had the pleasure of watching some seriously good pros...and they are all amazing...but wade FEELS the trail...its a totally different level of flow. In surf terms...he has biking soul.

I agree with the Wade segment.

I also really like the music at the opening scenes. Funny thing is, I have NO Scottish blood in me, but man something about their music rocks.

I dont want to start an argument but heres my opinion:

I liked it. I thought it was a good bike movie. But nothing more, yet I expected more from the trailer. I think the NWD series kicks the collectives a$$.

You're australian. You're forgiven .

I think we are bombarded with big hit movies endlessly. I know I am sick of them (heck I own most of them). The only part I hate in the collective is redbull. I have grown to despise the competition. More and more boring every year. It was nice to a see a movie really show what the riding scene is like on the west coast (but not riding in the west coast exclusively). Thats what made the movie for me. That was like me and my buds going riding, the collective, summed it up perfectly. It was an artistic movie, very refreshing...(don't get me wrong...nwd4 kicks ass and I will be at the nwd5 world premier in a month or so....just nice to see someone with a completely different approach)

Hey Mael, I added Whistler to my "fare watcher" list. Who knows, cheap flight, free place to stay (right?) and a movie premier. What could be better? Does your GF have any lonely desperate friends?????

Desperate no (with 7 girls to every guy...girls have ahuge advantage)...but a nite out at buffalo bills and you should be throughly hooked up. We have a loft for you to stay in or what seems like a perma bed on our floor. You are welcome anytime meng...(although winter isn't as much fun as summer here...the women, bikinis and of course biking....:drool:...)

As a hint...a lot of people fly to WA state and rent a car and drive up...sometimes cheaper.

Thats what makes the film so good. The I'm out ridin' with my friends vibe. I didn't care for the dirt jump seg. but the whole laid back vibe was great. As far as the west coas thing, my bud who went there to test the demo 9 says the riding is super as aer the locals.
