Beyond Dedication - Vernon Huffman's Pursuit of Passion: Vernon Huffman doesn’t take short cuts. When he wants a certain IPA, he brews it. When he sees the opportunity for a trail, he builds it—legally. When he wants to give mountain bikers access to the amazing trails of Marin County, he fights tirelessly, through legislation and litigation. As the president of the Access4Bikes Foundation, a Marin-based advocacy group, Huffman has been leading the charge for mountain bike access in the birthplace of the sport. His dedication is beyond mountain biking though, and his cause is not simply access, but rather fighting for what you believe in, with dignity and endless passion—something visible in every aspect of Huffman’s life.

Tony Hawk's Path To Progression: "Learning new tricks is a landmark of skateboarding. It’s a process that is not always groundbreaking or easy to understand from a non-skating perspective. I documented the journey of doing an “NBD” (never been done) on vert in order to give a better understanding of what it takes to be innovative in a sport that constantly evolves; hours of attempts and a sprained ankle for a 3-second clip that could easily go unnoticed… but worth all the effort as far as I’m concerned." -Tony Hawk.
