Winter Digging:Surrey, BC

Billy Thackray Billy Thackray

Derek Kost and his friend Jordan have been busy digging in Surrey, BC, Canada. No sign of any snow in the shots yet but just take a look at the size of that rock that they’ve shifted, that’s got to be in the running to win the “biggest-rock-shifted-by-hand” competition.

Derek says: “We have a riding spot in a local forest called Invergarry. It’s located in Surrey, BC, Canada. This spot was hand-built by my friend Jordan and I. We now have twenty-two jumps in this small area. Everything from small table tops for the young riders to the latest ‘big line’ of twenty foot gaps. There are six main lines to hit with plenty of opportunities to transfer and add flair to the jumps. I hope the readers enjoy our hard work. More info here.

We are currently working with the city to try and get this forest made into a real bike park. Hopefully this exposure on Dirt can help us.”

    Thanks for putting up these winter dig bits. Good inspiration for my own trail sculptures. Just need the ground to defrost before further progress!

    I think I might have to head back to the hood to hit the woods! It looks like it’s going to shape up into a real good local riding spot. 😀

    Sweet! Really hoping the city will get on board with this and notice what an amazing spot this would be for a legit bike park. There’s nothing else in the area for quite a drive, definitely nothing that you would be able to ride to. Invergarry rocks!
