Filmed over the course of the past year. Had no expectations for this just went out and had fun with my dude. Doesn't matter what the setup is Chris will get down with it. Always a good time when we're out chillen, riding, drinking, doing whatever. More to come soon ... we're always working.
The winter months had taken their time, WhatsApp group chats had run their course, and the urge to get back out for a good old road trip had been on the cards for a while. Email chains and pick up points arranged, we were making the most of planning for a good break in the weather to pile into a van and make our way North. Why north? It was the safer option due to the abundance of indoor parks situated in that region of the UK, should it rain etc. Which, of course… it did!
