New Zealand is like the British Columbia of the Southern Hemisphere—big mountains, epic scenery and of course, amazing riding. As winter fast approaches in the north, we become more reliant on edits from the seemingly distant summer months. Carson Storch’s trip to New Zealand is like a twist of the knife in a deep wound—both because of the epic riding going down and because summer in the south is just getting rolling.

From shirtless backflips on trail bikes, to big mountain gnar on the downhill sled, Storch makes full use of the diverse terrain in New Zealand. Really, there’s not much that he doesn’t ride.
