Hopefully he brought a tow rope

One of the many unique features of the Oregon dunes are the large tree islands that pop up in the middle of a sea of sand. These islands also tend to gather freshwater and after a good windstorm, large walls of sand develop that tempt riders to test their luck against the laws of physics. This guy was doing well until his Banshee cut out, sending him into the water at the bottom of the dune. The fun starts at about 5:30

Growing up in Oregon, most of Seth's involvement in the powersports world was limited to what he saw in magazines and videos. Following a brief stint in the corporate world, Seth took a flying leap (literally) and moved to California to pursue a career in freestyle motocross. Though short lived, the opportunity immersed him in the industry and is now a well-established off-road writer.
