Charlie Crumlish S&M Tall Boy Video

Charlie Crumlish on the other hand isn’t so convinced that the apocalypse is coming. Why would he be? His signature Tallboy frame means that he is now one of the select few riders to have been honored by BMX’s foremost institution, S&M Bikes. He continues to progress his own brand of technical street riding beyond what anyone once thought possible and the decade or so he has spent burrowing deeper and deeper into his audiovisual wormhole has earned him not just an entirely unique style of video editing (what else would you compare this to?) but an unexpected foray into music production with some assistance from DJ Smokey. People spend a lot of time talking about positivity and creativity, but Crumlish is living it. He’s doing his own thing, having fun and progressing in his own way, on his own time, and as of late he’s been doing it on his own bike too. So what’s all this fire and brimstone talk for?

Drunk Guy Jumps In Disgusting River for $5, Gets Mocked by Children

Anyone who went to the OSS x Subrosa street ride a few weeks ago is probably familiar with Bizzle now. He was acting like a damn fool everywhere we went that day, culminating at the Hollenbeck plaza where he stripped down and jumped into the water where he cut his feet open on the broken glass and then got mocked mercilessly by 2 small Vietnamese children. I’m so happy I filmed this.

Sean Ricany Blender Sunglasses Promo

Nate Richter met up with Sean Ricany the other day and filmed this promo for Sean’s sunglass sponsor in Venice. They kept it pretty simple but of course Ricany always holds it down.

WTP: Dillon Lloyd & Dan Kruk in San Diego

Dillon Lloyd has basically moved into the OSS apartment over the course of the last month. He was supposed to come out for a couple weeks but at this point it’s hard to imagine him ever leaving. Around the time he first came out, WTP sent him on a quick roadtrip to San Diego with up and coming stunter, Dan Kruk to put some work in with Francis Castro. Observe the miraculous tricks that were filmed above and check their description below:

“Dan Kruk is new to the AM squad and when we heard word he was going to be in Cali around the same time Dillon Lloyd was we thought about getting those two to film a 4 day trip to San Diego. Francis Castro behind the lens and these two knuckle heads meant only one good things could happen.

Press Rewind: Kink in Mexico City

A year or so ago Kink went down to Mexico City for some BMX riding. The crew consisted of Darryl Tocco, Dan Coller, Tony Hamlin and Calvin Kosovich. A lot of good shit went down but you probably need to see Tony’s flip out of a tiny street fountain to believe it.

Press Rewind: Shawn Mcintosh Primo Web Video

Here’s a really good Shitty section from a few years back when he first moved to California. See that ledge at the 1 minute mark? I went and looked at it the other day and they basically skate stopped it by planting a huge tree right next to it. Shawn Mac kills it, tree or no tree.

This Bicycle Parking Technology Will Blow Your Mind.

This is pretty fucking cool, but I’ve got to wonder if it’s been built to handle a bike with pegs sticking out everywhere.

Ant Life in Los Angeles

“I mean pretty much we (Phil Bartlett, Jordan Hickey, Ryan Antle and I) just wanted to get out of Newfoundland to ride and chill somewhere that winter isn’t a problem. Our buddy Dave Scott from Newfoundland who has been living in BC the last few years met us out there part a few days in. We ended up drinking a lot of cheap booze, met a lot of dope people, smoke a lot of good dope, and had some fun on our bikes it was a solid time.”

Check out a photo gallery and write up that Dave Scott put together from the trip here.
