from the j to the bay: for the country

yeah i know it's 15 minutes long but you should make some time to watch this one. this little mini documentary follows Wbase riders marco and nasty to san francisco when they participated in the redbull ride and style event earlier this year. it also gives insight on their first trip to the US and how they feel about riding and how they feel about representing their country on foreign soil.

"Filming on FOR THE COUNTRY took place in April, 2011. Only a month earlier, on March 11, 2011, Japan was struck by a massive earthquake and tsunami that left nearly 20,000 people reported dead or missing. More than 800,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. Thousands of survivors are displaced and still living in temporary shelter. Please take a moment to consider contributing to ongoing relief efforts. Mercy Corps, a Portland-based organization, works directly with Peace Winds Japan to provide on the ground assistance in affected areas."

pretty awesome stuff and it is worth your time to watch.
