Wow, This is Awesome...

Recommended Posts

I came around a corner in a trail and this group of Moms, Dads and Kids were crossing a stream of slippery rocks. I pulled out my camera and got some footage... I've been riding these trails for decades and to see kids this young already deep in the mountains... It was such a great feeling...

I actually got a little misty eyed as I spent a good part of my adult life alone or with a few friends in these mountains maintaining, cutting and working on these trails. Man, I felt proud of these kids and their parents. I wondered for years what the future of true Hawaii trail riders would be... I wonder no more... The trail cutting torch has been passed and there are more good trail cutters out there making great stuff. One of the good trail cutters is helping his sons bike across the stream... The future is lookin good... :lol:

Great video. To me, these kind of videos with families and friends going out and having some fun and exploring are the best out there.

Ok, that is just awesome.

Beats spending time with the kids in front of a TV.

I'm just happy to see all of them wearing quality boots and proper protection. Most people skip on the right stuff when they have to fit the whole family in on it. They are all wearing a-stars and the kid on the 50 has on a leatt. SWEET

I usually skip threads with titles like this. They too often don't live up to the name.

This is a huge exception. That IS an awesome video. Thanks for sharing it!

You guys are very welcome for this... To this day the best video I have ever shot... Something about the raw moment of a Mom teaching her kid how to cross a slippery river bed... Pointing out lines etc. Seriously, this kinda s**t is priceless.

Also, the boy on the KX. He's gonna be an animal in the nasties when he grows up. These kids were having a blast and you can tell... They were in adventure Heaven. Here in Hawaii the trend is to making trails more and more difficult to challenge ourselves and each other. I heard that kid rides a lot of the gnarly trails already. By the time these kids grow up, can you imagine the ridiculous stuff they will be cutting?!! They gonna be punishing us old farts!
