    The whale tail has been in the works for a while, but I haven't had the chance to build it until now. A lot of things needed to be in place, like the landing, a better roll-in, that kicker, not to mention a working Kevin Jump with a wood berm after it. Thanks to Kevin, Brian, and Alexander for helping out on this build. They all have NOsel channels:

    Brian (BKXC)
    Alexander (Singletrack Sampler)

    2. LiamCat 19

      Bruh, in like 2 days I have become addicted to this channel and I am already building a wooden jump of my own.

    3. Fungifu Christensen

      Might be a bit late on this advice but tin sheeting in on your trail really improves the shoveling experience

    4. Owen Hamel

      Who else got goosebumps when they heard the sound the whale tail makes 🙋‍♂️

    5. Kristers Dancis

      What are the dimensions for it?

    6. Mixup 221

      Seth:we used black locust and 2x2 posts, it will last forever Me: I used rotten wood and built an A-frame over my picnic table

    12. Michael Wemhoff

      I got put on probation for building 2 miles of trails on someone else's land. I dont care to much about the probation because it is illegal what I am mad about is that the husband actualy liked it but his wife threatened divorce If he didnt decided to press charges and tear down 4 years of hard work l. Or so I thought. in the end he didnt actualy take much down telling his wife that he's getting old and it was to much work. so after I was off probation we kept if touch and he let me ride whenever I wanted.

    45. Odds On

    46. Craig. Rau rhymesraig. Rau Rau

      Build another one so when you finish the line you go back up to the start and you can just keep going and keep going

    47. BBeluga Whale


    48. Nathan Brokering

      Seth you need to take your fatbike on the whale tail. Think about how awesome that would sound

    49. Ewan Price

      How wide did Seth build the whale tail??

    50. Trey 07

      Those are some responsive breaks

    51. Em S


    52. Linus Takee

    54. Claus Harbo

      Ooo.... It looks so much fun ! Is it possible to get the dimensions on the Whale 🐋 Would love to make a Danish copy of it 💪 will not spend a lot of wood on something that ends up being useless.. Tanks for some great videos !!

    55. Lincoln Evans

      seth the burly boi

    56. Andrew's train stuff

      Just wanted to say seth your videos gave me the courage to build a couple of small jumps for my mountain bike! So thankyou!!!!!!

    57. Raja Canedo

      Watching the gators suspension decompress is so satisfying

    58. Maecus

      I dont know why but these videos are so relaxing

    59. S Shin

      Seth inspired me to build my first trails

    60. Ted Simpson

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="121">2:01</a> as Seth unloads the dirt, the truck goes up haha

    61. ToxicX99

      You should build a triple roller It’ll make you gain so much speed and then you coul place a huge feature or massive jump afterward

    62. Tyce Rides

      You should get motion censer hunting cameras and place them around the trail so if you do any thing cool without recording you can just go check your camera and boom footage

    63. Riddle

      You kind of sould like this NOselr named welyn

    64. Dave Barnett

      Ace! Just found your channel and despite houses here in the UK generally not coming with much land, we're about to put the house on the market and the new place definitely needs land!!!

    65. Tyler scott

      you should make a second trail later

    66. bowen voowy

      “See how far let I am?” Seth “ it’s okay you can steer”

    67. Max Gunn

      Him building with the wood reminded me of my Lincoln log days

    68. BEARicade !

      I hate manbuns.

    69. Noah Niederklein

      That ending though 😂😂😂

    70. Jake Kim

      I’m curious if it’s possible for you to gain such a velocity you can go literally perpendicular to the ground on some time of berm-to-wall ride situation.

      1. bowen voowy

        Love that whale 🐳

    71. Jonathan Zappala

      One thing I’ve leaned watching this channel, buy the dump bed

    72. Henry Lubkeman

      Hey Seth I was wondering the status on the race bmx bike I personally race and I would be curious if you would be willing to sell it?

    73. dante alberto

      you all are maried?

    74. savage boss

      it took him 3 tries to do the keven jump they should bring someone more young who is good at riding to do it cuz there more young they probably would try it 1 go


      Do you share video revenues with the guys who help with all this work?

      1. eioshen boboi

        compacting just the top. You will have much less settling issues! Love the channel and thanks for sharing all that you do my friend! Keep them coming!

    76. Matt Guild

      HI Seth you have completely inspired us at home... I have a 12 year old daughter who loves this stuff, I must say I love it too. We are building our own course on our property... which is so cool (beginner level though, have to start some where)... With regards to the whale tail is there any specific height to curve ratio that you could help us with we just want to build a lower down version .... Love your stuff keep it coming!!!

      1. eioshen boboi

        Seth. Thank you for all these awesome videos. I went back and have watched all the Berm Peak videos in order and the progression is awesome and fun to watch! Just a tip

    77. Cris Hernandez

      This trail build project is awesome!!

    78. Alex Samaniego
