This video really covers a lot of bases.

Like the following:

-Waking up to an alarm

-Wiping the sleepy out of your eyes while greeting the new day

-Fake film burns

-Slider dolly portrait shots of serious business times with focus on the background instead of the subject

-Helmet install and gloving up

-Pedaling a downhill bike really hard on a flat, boring trail

-Some attempted kickouts

-Closeup shot of rolling over a root

AND THAT’S ONLY THE FIRST MINUTE, GUYS. THERE’S SO MUCH MORE IF YOU’RE JUST PATIENT.

Look, we all regret things we did when we were 13 so I’m not crapping on this kid directly, and obviously everything is better through the delusional rose tinted glasses of nostalgia, but back in my day (groans) 13 year olds were hucking stair gaps and dropping retaining walls to flat for unbridled fun and doing whimsical shit like putting big double crown forks on hardtails. If the last few months of videos in particular has shown us anything, it’s that groms value kickouts and making shitty “edits” overly cinematic in their presentation over being stupid, fun loving kids doing stupid, fun things with stupid, fun bikes.

If this is what kids these days find fun then count me out as an officially cranky old fart. The kickout is ruining the youth culture. Also, get off my lawn and get a haircut you damn kids.
