Daniel Dakota StickingToOurRoots \m/
This section is long over due. Since uploading this dvd I have been pretty busy and completely forgot to upload this section. Daniel was (probably still is) a very smooth and stylish rider. Very humble kid who just sat there and loved playing with the dirt. He was quite the perfectionist when it came to shaping the jumps and even used to make fun of my sloppy work sometimes!!! Today i found out that i may have offended Daniel.
If he got the impression that I didn’t upload it out of spite then I would like to make it clear that it wasn’t the case. I do what I do because I love BMX, I love the fact that I get to share this beautiful thing with my friends, and I love seeing new people getting involved. It’s what BMX is all about. I started filming and making videos 6 years ago because the feeling of working on a project together really pushes the level of progression.
Filming a project like GoodCleanFUN, StickingtoOurRoots, Behind Bars, takes a lot of time & money which comes out of my pocket. We film for 9 months straight, and I have to juggle a full time job and dig at trails. Most importantly I want to ride too. I want to progress together with my friends. Its hard but worth it. I love sharing these moments with all of you. Filming a full length takes a lot of time and dedication. We have spent a couple of hours filming one line!!! Remember I don’t get paid to this, I do it out of pure love and I want to share it with you guys.
Today Daniel and I said some pretty hurtful things to each other. I would like apologise for my part.
People who know me know that I’m constantly forgetting shit, I’m thinking about BMX 99% of the day, thinking of how we can have more fun, so I just forget. What I am trying to say is that I genuinely forget, and I am very sorry that I forgot.
Now I hope that you all appreciate 2 minutes of some pretty dialed riding. And I hope that I see him hit the jumps again very soon. \m/
