There’s a few things you can count on every winter in Canada; the geese to fly south, snow and cold ass weather (or rain in Vancouver), hockey to be a major pass time for most Canadians and also for Joel Fortin to drop some serious heat from what he’s been filming up til winter. This edit is no exception, filmed over the course or 2017 in Toronto, Montreal, Buffalo and Barrie. Joel can slay a rail and I couldn’t imagine that last clip being any more perfect.
Joel Fortin blesses us with not one but two edits from this past non snow season. This new one is a mix of footage from the summer and stuff filmed during a trip to NYC in the fall. Shout out to Mason and Jack for sending through some clips and huge shoutout to Joel for hooking this up!!!!!
Joel Fortin is a Barrie,ON youngen who has been popping up more and more over the past couple of years and with good reason. He’s a humble dude, crazy tech, great filmer and loves bikes/biking. Read on…
Zach St Clair is a young Timmins/Markham/TO shredder who is known for his riding and as of late spot searching. Maybe a lesser known thing about Zach is that he’s also very talented behind the lens, wether it be filming or taking pictures. He was nice enough to put together this awesome 2015 photogallery for NE featuring some of his Ontario homies, check it.
I suck at video descriptions, normally I would go with something along the lines of “I made this video of my friends biking because it’s fun.” But I feel like I could probably say something slightly more interesting about this one. Basically I spent the summer carrying my VX around, annoying as many people as I could to let me film them. After about a dozen mini DV tapes, a broken ribbon cable in my viewfinder and a few trips; (Montreal, Toronto, London and a couple other places) I somehow I ended up with 8 and a half minutes of footage. So thanks to everyone who was down to film something for this! *praying hands emoji* And thanks to the Long Island connects aka The Whammo squad for sending a bunch of awesome clips through. Also massive thanks to Jeremy Deme for letting me premiere this on the site, and for being the man and holding down The Embassy for the last 5 years.
Some of the homies were in Montreal for the Taz Pro/Am contest last week and put together this quick edit during a session at Le Taz. Featuring Dillon Lloyd, Joel Fortin, Ryan Eles, Zach St Clair and Spencer Ryan.
