Today we’re premiering another Long Beach skatepark edit from Miles Rogoish. This one features Morgan Long, Tony Neyer, Sean Morr, Shawn Mcintosh and a bunch of other locals at our local hang out, MLK. Check out Miles’ other Long Beach park edit featuring Alex Kennedy, Eric Lichtenberger below:
Today we’re premiering a video featuring Jamie Guile that Proper sent over. Just like their description (below) says, this video is full of some of the craziest looking London spots that have seemingly never been ridden before. Here’s their description:
“This is Jamie’s first solo edit for Proper. He’s not a well known rider. He’s stayed away from the spotlight riding in his hometown of Worthing, which the BMX media completely ignore. This year we started filming in London at spots that were often completely unridden in the grimiest suburbs. Over Summer we visited Lyon, Annecy, St Etienne, Paris, and Dunkirk in France and kept stacking clips in London.
London has way more decent bank spots than rail spots so no-one should be surprised Jamie has a different selection of tricks than an NYC edit. Neither should you compare this to an California or Barcelona edit. London is tough going, especially when the spots are tucked away where no-one else is looking.
Jamie was still looking for a “banger” up until last weekend. That didn’t go too well but he’s already brewing ideas for future edits.
The other day Broc Raiford came through the ONSOMESHIT store in LA (where the TCU offices are located) to pick up some shirts and ride a few local spots. John Hicks put together this edit from the session. If you live anywhere in the Southern California area, come through and say hi.

Just got word that Morgan Long is off Stolen. Morgan’s been riding for Fit as his bike sponsor for a few years now but he was still riding for Stolen parts up until now. Unrelated, the Dans Comp DVD premiered last night in Long Beach and Morgan has a lot of good clips.
Today we’re happy to announce that our good friend Grant Castelluzzo has been added to the Mutiny pro team! Grant has been putting in work for a long ass time so I’m stoked to see him get the bump. This also means we’re doing our first ever premiere with Mutiny, which you can watch above. Here’s their official statement about Grant’s bump up to pro:
“We are excited to announce Grant Castelluzzo is getting the bump up to the Mutiny pro team for 2014! To celebrate, Grant spent the last few weeks filming in Chicago and Milwaukee and put together this edit. Filmed by Andrew Brady, Anthony Laconte, Chris Beers and Mike Hinkens.”
Thanks to Mutiny for letting us help premiere this edit. Follow Mutiny and Grant on Instagram.
Karl hasn’t put out an edit in almost a year (during which time he left Ezra and Eastern and started riding for Chad Degroot’s Deco) but today he’s making his comeback with this rainy day skatepark edit.
Here’s the first of 3 edits from The Bakery Secret Recipe contest that went down last week in Chicago. The contest was separated into three sections, the first of which was the flat rail/roller coaster ledge area of the space. Everyone killed it. We have kept the results under wraps so feel free to speculate on who you think might have won in the comments.
Come through this premiere in Long Beach on Sunday:
“Dan’s Comp is pleased to announce that we are doing another official premiere for our new DVD on Sunday, December 8th at The Art Theatre of Long Beach in Long Beach, California. This premiere is in association with Cinema & Etnies and will follow a jam earlier in the day at McBride skatepark. There will be a bunch of giveaways from Cinema, Etnies and Dan’s Comp and good grip of the West Coast based Dan’s Comp team riders will be in attendance, as well as Cinema X Etnies X Dan’s Comp riders Corey Martinez and Nathan Williams. The Roll Call DVD is available now.”
Today we’re happy to present a photo gallery that Wes McGrath shot on the Hazy In AZ trip that Nate Richter did late last month. Jackson Ratima, Glen Girbovan, Jourdan Barba, Dan Norvell and Raul Ruiz all killed it on this trip along with some help from the locals, namely Robbie Owen, Clay Johnson, and Jeremy “Zuka” Hacker.

Stevie texted me this image of his new signature Eclat tire last night and made me SWEAR that I wouldn’t post it. I just looked at my RSS feed and Vital posted it three hours ago. Fuck Young Neck Pillow. This is named after his beverage of choice, in case you’re not too knowledgable about liquor.
So this is kind of off topic but Ryan Denehey (who you might know as the guy who started BNQT and then sold it for a ton of money and just raised almost 4 million dollars for his new company) invited me to join him next Thursday in Hollywood to speak about business development for startups. His words:
“WOAH. Next Thursday 12/12 in LA is my next biz dev for startups event. So stoked to have Adam Grandmaison join me on stage. Adam is a total badass and self-made entrepreneur (websites, clothing lines and retail stores.) Prepare for insane storytelling and killer advice on how to kick ass and get what you want. We’ll probably crack some beers and play rap music. Be there and be more successful.”
Petey Pabs hit me up with his latest video. Here’s his description:
“Blasfome is a lifestyle brand, homegrown hailing out of Pittsburgh, Pa. I spent about 6 months filming spread out along the east coast and a few days in Austin for Texas Toast. Filming mainly done by Chris Tardiff and Dan Webster. Edit was constructed by Shajn Raines. Song used is Unnatural Axe – Creeper”
Ty Morrow, Eric Lichtenberger, Steve Croteau, Aaron Brenner, Colin Varanyak, Miles Rogoish, Kevin Kiraly and Caleb Quanbeck stopped by the ONSOMESHIT store in Downtown LA to drop off some Deadline and The Trip shirts. Here’s a quick video that John Hicks put together while they were here.
The OSS retail store and the TCU offices are located at 127 east 5th st in Downtown LA.
I’ve been showing this to people for the past week and everyone pretty much unanimously loves it right away. Eric Licthenberger and Shawn Mcintosh do a bunch of awesome shit at Cherry but Alex Kennedy’s last clip is one of the coolest things I’ve seen on a flat ledge in years. Props to Miles Rogoish for doing an amazing job filming this.
We’re holding a Black Friday sale this weekend both online, in the TCU online store and in the ONSOMESHIT retail store in Downtown LA. We’re heavily discounting all our old TCU and OSS designs and there will be some nice sales on our newer stuff too. Thanks!
Famous Chicago rapper, King Louie (who I feel comfortable calling “famous” without an asterisk since he is on the new Kanye CD, after all) showed up at The Bakery contest for a few minutes but tonight he and his crew rolled through again for a longer session that left one of his homies with a huge rip in the crotch of his True Religions. After the jump, check out a couple of videos that were broadcast earlier tonight to his 60,000 Instagram followers and peep the video for his song “Michael Jordan” above. Continue reading →
On Friday we held a big party for the opening of our first ever retail venture, the ONSOMESHIT store in Downtown LA. For years now I’ve wanted to establish a physical store to sell stuff we’re stoked on from the brands we’re into and I’m pretty excited that it finally happened. Every day various members of the TCU staff and the OSS team are hanging out, so come check it out at 127 E 5th st.
Also the new OSS line is now up in our online store, go check it out and use the code “FREESHIP” to get free shipping on orders over $150 (includes overseas orders).
