BTS: We wanted something unique for @davebachinsky's welcome to the team clip.
I had the idea to film a backside flip or something over a fallen tree, so Dave and @brycepagter and I set out for Big Bear and the mountain forests.
We weren't expecting any snow and we ended up on some crazy back roads dodging pot holes and ice when we spotted this tree up the hill from the road by an abandoned cabin.
Covered in snow, bark, termites and dirt, we stripped it back to make it "skatable" (I use that term loosely). We dragged up some ply wood from the road and set up the Red Cam and some @gopro angles to capture the madness.
Dave set to work and in no time he was navigating the slippery behemoth and flying out the bottom into the snow.
Slipping in the snow and sliding headfirst into a root sticking out of the ground.
You can hear me yell "you alright??" at the end of the clip cos it was a hell of a collision.
But Dave was so stoked on riding away (as much as anyone would be able to in those conditions) and we got much more than the clip we ever intended on getting.
A fitting introduction to our team and a crazy clip befitting of someone as unique and talented as Dave is.
I snapped this shot on the landed attempt we used in the clip - @jaxinhall #keystreet #🔑 #everonward #davebachinsky #skateeverywhere
