Roy Van Kempen and Jason Eustathiou and teamed up for this split Federal edit that they filmed in Greece with Mike King and the result is an unfathomably complex labyrinth of technical wizardry. These dudes killed it!
Yesterday on the drive to The Skate House for last night’s night time BMX jam/pizza party I surprised everybody by throwing the GoPro up and recording during our entire trip to Chatsworth. Riding shotgun with me was my boy Lavell Washington and holding down the rear we had Reed Stark, Caleb Quanbeck and Brandon, a scooter kid that Lavell brought with him and who I had just met but who I instantly took a liking to based on his explanation of how to meet women while living the scooter lifestyle. We talked about a bunch of stupid shit and had some good laughs. Kids, don’t watch this in front of your parents.Read post →
WOAH. I just had my mind blown by 4 minutes of insane new Simone footage and if I had to guess, I’d say you’re about to experience the same thing I just did. Most of you have already seen Simone’s recent blockbuster, which I’ve yet to notice people stop talking about since it’s release, but here’s another insane 240 seconds of footage that has somehow been deemed leftovers, left on the cutting room floor not quite strong enough to earn it’s keep in the upcoming Shadow DVD. How is that possible? Is this all part of some cunning Floridian/Italian ruse? Is he really sitting on a full section of footage that is better than this? Is Ryan Chadwick playing tricks on me??? Watch, enjoy and then sit on your hands until the Shadow DVD hits the streets.
Check out the list of the 82 local premieres going down for What Could Go Wrong? after the jump.
One thing about the Kink squad… they aren’t scared to get the team together and hop on an airplane in search of spots. Their most recent voyage to Panama City yielded an incredible array of interesting spots from the jibbiest of ledges to towering handrails, and the Kink team, consisting of Darryl Tocco, Tony Hamlin, Sean Sexton, Dan Coller and Panamanian recruit, Kazique Caballos dealt with them all accordingly.
“After a trip fell through last minute to Honduras (due to some real world problems)…we decided instead of not going anywhere…to find the next best place that was cheap enough to enjoy. Panama City, Panama came to mind. After a few phone calls and text messages to some people that have been there…the tickets were booked, and our luxury sky rise apartment was payed for! Besides that, we didn’t know much about the place, or what we were getting into. Come to find out, the place is stacked. The footage you see is a mere 3% of what there is to ride in the city. Security is super tight, police are everywhere, and it is just plain not easy to ride spots there. You have to take a completely different approach to filming and riding in Panama; one that not many of the dudes are accustomed to. With all the hassles of security, strange people, language barriers, and cops with machine guns…we had an amazing time, and are stoked to have been able to not only ride some new spots, but meet the locals and have an awesome session. Thanks to everyone down there for the hospitality, and especially Ramon Pereira for the help and support during our trip.”
Shadow are doing a ton of local premieres for their new DVD “What Could Go Wrong?” (we premiered Simone’s insane leftovers today) and we’ve got the full list above. Here’s their description… make sure you make it out to one of these!
“The Shadow Conspiracy “What Could Go Wrong?” Local Premiere Weekend is almost upon us. Starting August 14th, our newest full-length video will be simultaneously premiered over the course of three days, in 60+ shops all over the world. From California to Japan, you’ll be able to be one of the first people to watch and buy “What Could Go Wrong?” This is the biggest premiere event to go down in BMX and we hope that you will come out and support Shadow and experience three years in the making.”
Adam LZ threw a jam based around this weird pepper joke he’s been milking and a massive crowd showed up, proving definitively once and for all that Adam LZ is the most popular BMX rider on the face of the planet.Read post →
Holy fuck. Long time TCU fans will remember Capone Rider. He made a 30 minute tutorial on how to make a bowl out of an apple. He posted a sex tape. He had a section in a BMXFU video. He even met me once. Well he’s back, he’s making vlogs, he has no clue how to use whatever editing program he has downloaded and he’s convinced that he not only used to be famous but that he still is. Even better, he promises more videos soon. This should be good.Read post →
One way to make a somewhat bland contest video more watchable; include a ton of b roll from a bikini contest. I spent the whole time wondering what the hell possesses an attractive woman to waste her talents on a fucking bikini contest at a BMX event but then again I haven’t spent much time […]Read post →
Technically this is a seat promo but that definitely didn’t stop Connor from going in for this one. Connor is perhaps most well known for his absurd overgrinds and this video definitely delivers on that front.Read post →
Alfredo decided to spice up his bike check a little bit by having one of his many female friends describe his bike for him. What do you think, would you let her work on your bike? Follow @alfredomancuso on Instagram for more bikes and breasts.
They say the truth comes from the mouths of babes. Well Pouya and Fat Nick are, if nothing else, babes. Pause. These dudes are 20 years old each and they have no filter. Pretty much from the very start this conversation gravitated towards everybody’s favorite topic: sex. Most rappers keep their foul sexual tales close to their chest but Pouya and Nick happily shared many of their most graphic groupie tales with childlike glee. I’ve been a fan of their music for a while but after this interview, it was official, I’m sold, these dudes are fucking awesome. Check out the topics discussed below, check the Soundcloud player below and click here to listen to us on iTunes.Read post →
You guys have Snapchat, right? If so, follow onsomeshit.com immediately and upon completion of that task, click play and watch 15 minutes of BMX action that went down on the Street Series Snapchat this year.Read post →
A couple months ago when we dropped the Edwin TCU TV somebody left a comment with a link to the Ells Bells classic “Finding Shade” which he put out under his Sombra imprint in the early 2000s (this version is better quality but non-embeddable). Today I got around to watching it again after having seen it approximately 5 billion times throughout my youth and it left me with a warm glow and a strong desire to go do a sprocket chunk. This was Ratboy in his prime.Read post →
The other day we were discussing riders in So Cal who deserved more coverage and Larry Edgar’s name quickly came up. Long story short, soon after Nate Richter took a trip down to the FOD trails to film with Larry and a few members of his regular crew, Nathan Sykes, Matt Cordova and Ross Lanier. Even fucking Heath Pinter showed up. I don’t watch a lot of trails videos but I can definitely say that I enjoyed this one from beginning to end.
Despite the fact that this video now has almost 7 million YouTube views, we’ve actually never re-posted it on the site since it dropped roughly a year and a half ago. Only a handful of BMX related YouTube videos have more views than this section and it stands to reason that it will probably become #1 at some point in the near future. It even inspired this gif. I figure that since this week we also put out Tate’s excellent TCU TV interview it was time for a re-up. Much respect to Tate and Elf for putting this gem together.
