We’ve got two quick clips today. First, Eddie Welsh falling on an icepick, sending his bike directly into a passing car. And second, we have Joe Ellis eating shit and then eventually pulling a massive wallride.Read post →
I’ve got a bunch of OSS news to drop today:
2) We now have a second retail location in Shanghai. It’s located within SMP skatepark and it’s got our clothing, plus BMX bikes and parts just like our LA store. We’ve partnered with our good friend Kane Wang who is running the store day to day. I’ve got an interview dropping soon where I talk more about the China store.
3) We’ve loaded up the OSS web store with new products including our first cut n sew item, our button up shirts (which Brandon Begin is wearing above), new box logo shirt colorways and new stickers.
Bas Keep, Ben Hennon, Kevin Kalkoff, Matt Priest, Greg Illingworth and Gary Young all went to Oregon for a concrete park trip. If you’re in the mood for 11 minutes of park shredding, you just hit the lotto.
We’ve already dropped a couple of sections from ALYK’s latest DVD, No Days Off (check Brandon Galosi here, Ryan Howard here and Kyle Murway here) but here’s the friends section. It’s a work of art, to be honest. A huge variety of riders from all over the place including Tyrone Williams, Ratkid, Blackman, Matt Skaggs, Troy Merkle, Russell Barone and many more.
I have still never played or even looked at the original Pumped but after watching this trailer, I must admit that Pumped 2 looks pretty damn cool. And it comes out in exactly one week.

Tanner’s been on a tear this year, putting out all kinds of banging web videos. Here’s his latest one.
Last week I got hit up by a young Pennsylvania native named Cory Schneider with a link to this amazing web video that he put together. It’s always awesome to see younger dudes on the East Coast taking advantage of all the spots out there, in particular all of the crazy rails he rides in this. Adam Cook shot a photo gallery during the filming of this video and he wrote a lot of good stuff up about the process, you should check that out for sure and follow both of these guys on Instagram:
What would you say are the biggest problems facing high school students? Drugs? Casual sex? Cyber bullying? WRONG. Our nation’s children have an even more pressing issue hanging above their heads that only BMX can be trusted to conquer: being late to class. This principal took matters into his own hands and posted the above video to his school’s Facebook in an attempt to use BMX to make kids get up earlier in the morning.
Courage Adams just got added to the Red Bull team. Congratulations buddy! If you aren’t familiar with Courage, check out this video of him and you’ll definitely understand.
New England Jam Chowder is going down again this year, featuring most of the star brands, shops and riders from New England. The jam is going down on September 28th, check out an awesome video of last year’s jam above and peep the flier after the jump.
Video put together by Josh Foisey and Javaun Crane-Bonnell.
We’re all getting pretty used to seeing small children killing it in BMX these days (or at least I would hope so ever since we saw a 9 year old crankarm a handrail on street) but here’s 11 year old Lewis Cunningham who does a bunch of rails, locked in nose manuals and various freecoaster moves all for his sponsor, Kunstform?!
What could be better than a day riding around LA with Ty Morrow? He drops a couple serious hammers in here with some moral support from Gabe Brooks, Steve Croteau and Shawn Mcintosh. Catch Ty riding Dew Tour in Brooklyn this weekend.
Steven Robert went out to the Matt Barchus Brain Bash Benefit Jam (that’s really what it was called) and filmed a bunch of craziness from a ton of East Coast shredders including Brandon Begin, Craig Passero, Jake Seeley, Rory Ellis, Chris Zep, Jimmy Oaks, Josh Pascasio and Mark Burnett. In case you didn’t hear, Barchus was diagnosed with brain cancer recently and has been having a tough time with his medical bills, but his friends and family raised over 3000 dollars at the jam and almost 10,000 dollars total. You can donate here.

Back in march 2014 we went on a Crucial X Subrosa Trip to Barcelona to get involved in the DUB ‘Street Series’ JAM that was going on. The trip was amazing; great weather, good spots and a sick crew.
We had 6 people on our trip, 3 #CrucialGang Team Riders and 3 local up and coming lads that were keen to tag along for their first out-of-the-UK BMX trip.
Big thanks to Subrosa, Seventies and CrucialBMX for making this trip happen.
Filmed badly by Scott & Cappy
Here’s a new one that Jeff K put together featuring our boy Grant Castelluzzo riding some famous flat ledges that I am currently envious of. Icepick, smith, tabletop.
Shawn Mcintosh just dropped his best section yet in the form of Fit’s “Holy Fit” DVD. But during much of the same time frame, Mac Shit’s been working on this Primo web video, which we’re happy to help premiere today on the anniversary of Tupac Shakur‘s birth. To say Shawn killed it would be an understatement, in fact some of you might even like this more since it’s all more recent stuff. Either way you’ve got to admit that the post-trick celebration after the banger is legendary.
RIP (?) Tupac Shakur
Filmed by a lot of people, edited by Miles Rogoish
Featuring a guest clip from Ty Morrow
Here’s a quick one from Tony Cherry which features a lot of back wheel tapping around as well as the usual grind stuff he’s known for.
The ALYK crew are dropping all the sections from their third full length DVD “No Days Off” online. To start we have this absolute masterpiece featuring Ryan Howard. If you know pretty much anything about street riding, you know that Ryan has been one of the best for a long, long time and if you don’t know anything about street riding you should probably just leave this one alone.
“Filmed primarily throughout the years of 2011-2013. Released in April, 2014.
