"Over the hill" is a common phrase in Santa Cruz used to refer to the 20-30 minute drive over the winding and often heavily trafficked Highway 17 into San Jose. For many locals, San Jose might as well be the other side of the world. "Over the hill" is also an expression used to describe someone as passed their prime.
I knew that when my son was born, big life changes were sure to come. I didn’t think I’d end up sitting on two years of footage, only to get around to editing it because I was in the midst of a global pandemic.
A fresh start is always a great feeling. Most of this footage is from now back to last September, but a good portion of Dusty's section is 4 years old. Luckily, he has a timeless style, which will still be rad even 831 years from now. The trail jam is from Halloween last year, so it's not customary for people to dress up like Wayne's World or the Hamburglar and get weird in the woods. This wasn't even supposed to be a long project, but I think it works better that way. Santa Cruz is a great place to be a BMX rider. Thanks for watching!
