Dane Searls- 60 ft dirt jumps RIP

I'm sorry if this has been posted already, but it is worthy of posting again incase anyone missed it. RIP Dane. If you dont know, he died recently in an unfortunate balcony to pool failed jump (without a bike).
Great video, enjoy...

Thermal count is rising, In perpetual writhing. The primordial ooze, And the sanity they lose. Awakened in the morning, To more air pollution warnings. Still we sleepwalk off to work, While our nervous systems jerk. Pretending not to notice, How history had forebode us. With the green house in effect, Our environment was wrecked. Now, I can only laugh, As I read our epitaph. We end our lives as moles, In the dark of DAWN PATROL   
RUST IN PEACE

Killer... Amazing to see someone attempt it let alone flip it.

Re: Dane Searls- 60 ft dirt jumps RIP

It's a shame and a waste of talent.  It's a shame to see someone that young and talented lose their life to a drunken roof dive.


Oh your bike doesn't have a scratch on it? 

Tell me again what the best parts are.

Re: Dane Searls- 60 ft dirt jumps RIP

WOW, SICK VIDEO!

I didnt see him flip it though...

Dane has taken BMX dirt jumping to a new level. How was that head tube from frame snap on the full chromo frame? HECTIC!

RIP Dane. BMX FOR LIFE cool

Was he drunk trying to make the balcony jump, or was it just speculation?

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: Dane Searls- 60 ft dirt jumps RIP

Great vid.  I love seeing the buildup, attempts and failures that lead up to the success. It gives real perspective about how nuts this stuff really is!

Yes he flipped it twice at the end of the video.
Yes it was a balcony to pool attempt from a second floor only 4 or 5 days after this video was filmed.
I don't think the death jump was filmed. Only reported on.

People that can make crazy jumps like that often do other crazy things. Sounds like he was a good guy. RIP.

Re: Dane Searls- 60 ft dirt jumps RIP

I dont know anything about this guy but from what i can see the dude is bad ass. My one fear in life is to know my limits and wonder why people do things that can take his or her life just not bmx but drugs etc etc. Just thinking how he passed away,it sounds dangerous what he tried to do.you only have one life enjoy it as im sure he did.R.I.P Dane
