“Pure Darkness returns. Last year we filmed the Pure Darkness road trip video because we were tired of watching boring videos filmed totally in slow-mo with predictable music. We wanted to make the most awesome video, like the old golden days of freeride. So we went to South Africa, built the biggest jump we could and then filmed it.” – Pure Darkness.
