Needless to say, once I hopped in the van any nervousness was thrown right out the window immediately. Like most BMX trips, the good times just kept on rolling. Maybe it was the fact that I quickly realized the self proclaimed 'Salty Bastard' John Povah (enties TM) is not (that) salty at all and actually quite spot-on with his witty comments. Aaron kept the good times going with his humor and non-stop pushing through the heat to get the clip exactly how he wanted even if the spot didn’t want him to have it. Nathan’s persistence and desire to ride any spot no matter how much work it takes to make it rideable is something to be admired by everyone, not to mention watching first hand him one upping himself on two different setups within an hours time. After all this wasn’t a trip just to stack clips and put out as much content as possible as fast as possible. Instead, this was exactly how any trip filming for a video should be. Look at any and all spots you may want to get for the clip for the video you where thinking of; then picking your battles wisely to avoid the deadly oven of Vegas heat. Luckily for Nathan and Aaron by the end of the week both left with numerous clips anyone would be stoked to have in their video section. Overall despite the heat, losing our friend Neil the night before the trip started. Vegas was amazing to all of us, leaving us without a hangover but rather some well deserved clips, good times and new friends. When's the next trip Povah?
