Calling The Shots at Rampworx.

Here’s one for the kids: a new edition of Calling The Shots featuring a bunch of doe-eyed park kids doing tricks all over Rampworx.

“At Rampworx we believe in a few things; some of these things are have fun and making each other learn tricks no matter what happens. When it comes to BMX in 2014 its all about progression.

Progression is defined by learning and improving; where is the fun in that…? Well, our locals have been killing it since 1997 and we felt like it was time to show you. We asked you on our social media channels what BMX tricks you wanted to see our riders do and on what ramp. Despite some farfetched request we have managed to cherry pick the finest requests and create this video featuring: Phil Larkin, Ben Carragher, Owen Page, Curtis Taylor, Mike Hullock, Alex Nener, Jamie Ricketts and Gary Spencer.

These are only a hand full of our locals and you can expect many more of these videos in the near future show casing more riders, tricks, Stylish and us just having a laugh in our plywood playground.

Meet Max Chuprina, The Siberian Skate Plaza Wizard.

Damn, this kid is good and he pulls everything super clean. I’m not sure how many riders have come out of Siberia but it’s hard to imagine that there are many better than Max here. Check this shit out. Thanks to Proper for sending it through.

“Max Chuprina is an enigma. He lives in the middle of Siberia (Krasnoyarsk – look it up) and it seems there isn’t too much to ride there besides one big indoor skatepark. Max hasn’t let that stand in his way. This August he traveled to Moscow and the UK stacking footage. These are the clips he filmed at various plazas along the way. The UK street clips from our #inbetweendays tour are still to come.
Filmed by Nataly Bystrova, Andrew Polukarov, and Jamie Cameron
Music: Astral Booze – Purple Hill Witch
Max is sponsored by Proper Bike Co and Raen shop”

Insane Russian DVD Trailer for “Уроды 4″

All I have to say to get you to watch this trailer for some Russian DVD that I’ve never heard of is that you get to see a guy do a footplant tailwhip where he SMASHES THE FILMER IN THE HEAD WITH HIS BACK WHEEL. I wish it was a couple seconds longer so I could make a Vine out of it. There are a bunch of other wacky clips in here as well, watch this now.

Morgan Wade’s Props Bio.

Props just released Morgan’s bio from Props 56, perhaps in relation to his recent controversial statements about web videos (immortalized by an inevitable Rodeo Peanut post). Regardless of if you like web videos and/or George Bush, there is no denying that this is a beast of a section.

Double Nasty Mondayz: Worst Leg Break Ever & Broken Frame Celebration.

This week we’ve got 2 Nasty Mondayz for you. The first features my buddy Terrell Middlebrooks with one of the worst leg breaks ever, the second features a kid breaking his frame while every kid at the trails freaks out. The first one is hard to watch and the second is quite the opposite.

Kevin Peraza Web Video.

Kevin Peraza has an interview in the newest issue of Ride. This is a video that was filmed while he was taking the photos for that feature. He mostly rides an indoor park and a cement ditch but at the end he does some pretty crazy street tricks including a big decade down stairs and a truck over a rail.

Cory Nastazio Interviews Adam22 On The Nasty Show.

A few weeks ago I appeared on Cory Nastazio‘s radio show, The Nasty Show. They just sent me the file so that I could put it up on YouTube. I’m not going to attempt to chronicle the things we talked about, so give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments.

The TCU iPhone App Is Temporarily Unavailable For iOS 8.

screen568x568

Bad news: the TCU iPhone app isn’t working on iOS 8. So if you haven’t upgraded your phone yet, don’t. If you do, you’re going to have to wait for approximately a month while the app is being re-built. I know this sucks but I assure you that our mobile site isn’t too bad either. We’ve got our developer hard at work on getting it fixed and it’ll have a few new bells and whistles too. As always, thanks for all the support.

Unrelated, TCU TV will be back with new and improved episodes soon.

TCU Premiere: Scott Ditchburn Skatepark Video.

Shout out to Scott’s sponsors, Subrosa and Shadow.

Esteban Bustamante Video.

Did you ever think you’d see an FBM web video edited to a Riff Raff song? Me neither. Their Colombian rider, Esteban Bustamante kills it in this new web video though, he’s definitely figured out this whole crankslide thing and even throws a whip out of one.
