The second installment of this series documenting Tyler Fernengel’s move from Detroit to San Diego sees him pack up, leave home and get on the road. First stop was Chicago for a session with Brian Kachinsky, then he dips to Colorado to ride the downtown Denver and Arvada parks.

Episode six of Raditudes starts off with a mellow sunset session at Sheep Hills, but things get interesting quickly when Hucker busts out his DJI Phantom Quadcopter. For a minute you’ll be thinking, “damn, he’s pretty good at this…” and then he almost beheads Navaz, flying it straight into his camera. You’re definitely gonna want to see this footage!
Jake Seeley is now officially lacing up Loteks and comes through with that heat for his welcome edit! While Jake was in Austin, he stayed in the streets and stacked a ton of footage with now-teammate and fellow grind wizard Charlie Crumlish, resulting in yet another bangin web vid.
Shoutout to DJ Smokey 666 for the track!

Over the past few years we’ve seen Kriss Kyle send flairs on the most minimal of transitions, but he fucked the club up with this one! So. Fucking. Sick.
Last month we premiered the promo for Pete Sawyer‘s signature Sterling line from WeThePeople and today he gives us a closer look at some of the features of his frame, fork and bars.

While out at Woodward for this year’s Mongoose Jam, a handful of dudes including Ben Lewis, Brian Kachinsky, Corey Martinez, Mike Gray, Paul Ryan, Pete Sawyer and Jeremiah Smith had themselves a hell of a session at the B3 Art Plaza. The Englishmen came through with some of the best footage in here, but Corey Martinez snags the last clip with a backwards grind you’re gonna want to see.
In the debut of his series chronicling the big move from Michigan to San Diego, Tyler Fernengel shows us around his hometown, sessions the park he grew up riding, hits a dope looking DIY spot and some street in nearby Detroit, then caps it off with a session at Transitions skatepark.
A few of the Blunted boys, including Lahsaan Kobza, Joey Calderone, Bo Hobbs and Tammy Mc69 on filming duties, avoid the heat and get a night time session in at their homie’s dope backyard ramp setup.
You saw Paul Ryan killing it on this bike at the Mongoose Jam, but just a couple weeks before he was in France on the latest Shadow Keep It Local tour where he shot this bike check. You don’t see a lot of dudes on straight up 20″ frames anymore, but it obviously works just fine for Paul. Hit theshadowconspiracy.com to look at his full setup.

Dennis Enarson put it all together and won the Dew Tour Streetstyle event in Portland this afternoon.

While on the Etnies Scout It Out tour, Tom Dugan sat down to take some questions from his fans. Does he still have any effects from his brain injury in 2012? Are there more sluts in Austin or Wichita? Are he and Chase D cool? Find out all that and more…
Damn, Chase Hawk is on a roll. Austin’s native son got the key to the city this morning and a proclamation straight from mayor Lee Leffingwell that tomorrow is officially Chase Hawk day in Ausin, TX. If you’ve always been a Hawk fan, dip a three or drink a Rockstar for your boy tomorrow. Congrats Chase!
I remember seeing videos of Courage Adams when he first got on Fly’s distro team and thinking how good this kid was going to be once his style started to develop. Fast forward a few years and you can tell Courage has really started to come into his own. It looks like the folks at Fly have taken notice as well, giving him an official spot on the team and a warm welcome to the family with this dope new video.
“Every once in a while, a rider comes along that’s just able to pick up tricks and overall bike skills quicker, with a better level of control than most, with an evident talent and rate of progression that’s telling of his future. Spain’s Courage Adams name may be new to some, but a lot of you already know his pure drive and enjoyment of riding. We guarantee you’ll be seeing a lot more of this kid in the near future.
Courage has been a part of Fly’s extended crew for a while, but we’d like to officially welcome Courage to the Flybikes Family. This is very well deserved. Congrat’s brother!!
Please enjoy some Courage Adams magic that was documented by Hugo Almeida!”
Here’s some fresh fire from Jackson Ratima doing it for Stolen Bikes. You can tell he’s on one in here, putting down so many good moves on a bunch of dope setups. Hyped on this one!
Last month Mutiny sent a bunch of their team out to Philly for a week in the streets featuring Grant Castelluzzo, Josh Bedord, Matt Houck, Justin Simpson and Jeff Wescott. This is a bittersweet release for the Mutiny guys since they spent much of this trip riding with Seth Stellfox who just passed away. Rest in peace. Here’s their description:
“When we were planning trips we asked everyone if they had any idea of where they wanted to go, nearly everyone had mentioned Philadelphia so in early June we took Bedford, Castelluzzo, Houck, Simpson, and Wescott there to film and shoot an article with Walter Pierringer for Ride UK. When we were deciding who was going to film the project it was a no brainer. We knew that Navaz was a local and obviously one of the best filmers in the game. Acting as tour guide and filmer he went above and beyond and helped us navigate our way through the streets of the City of brotherly love. During our stay we got to meet a bunch of awesome people including Seth Stellfox. He was a Philadelphia Police officer as well as a BMX rider who made sure we were safe while we were riding in some fairly dangerous neighborhoods. I just received the news that Seth has passed away, because he was so vital in the making of this video we wanted to dedicate it to him. Rest In Peace Seth.

Mankind pro Isaac Lesser spent a week riding his ass off at every park and street spot he could find in Berlin. Don’t let the intro put you off, dude gets some awesome shit done in here. And I’ll save you the time in having to Google what a naked mole rat looks like, it does indeed look like a ballsack.
Mike Curley just got the bump to WeThePeople‘s pro team and the cake to the face that comes with it. Mike’s been with WTP for a few years now, coming through heavily on trips and putting out a steady stream of videos, so him getting the bump is a total no-brainer. Have another look at our recent split edit with him and Mikey Tyra below and be on the look out for whats sure to be a bangin’ welcome video.
This one’s been floating around the rumor mill for awhile, but today it becomes official, The Albion is through. From the beginning, you could tell that the hearts and minds behind the mag were in the right place, but as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Here’s what they had to say:
“Somethings are not meant to last forever. Thanks for the support whilst we were here, we are sunk, at the bottom, wrecked, broke, in debt, bust. I’d like to say we gave it our all but we did not, not by a long shot, we gave what we were prepared to give and sometimes thats just not enough. There are no survivors. Pour over our remnants in years to come and revisit your memories of what we represented to you, maybe one day you’ll turn again the pages of time and remember us, 17 issues, thats enough, time to die. The Albion is dead. Ride on kids… its a new day tomorrow, live it… “Till the wheels come off”…” – The Albion
If you acquired any or all of the physical issues, you’re now owners of collectors items. And even if you never managed to get your hands on one, they’re all available online here.
