They’re building a new skatepark in Santa Rosa, California (just a couple hours north of Los Angeles) and despite the involvement of BMX riders throughout the construction of the park, the council has now decided that bikes will not be allowed. Alex Raban has started an online petition to get bikes into the park. This sort of thing happens all the time but it would be awesome if TCU as a community could make a difference on this skatepark in particular. It’s frankly just unthinkable that our tax money is still being used to construct skateparks which we aren’t allowed to use. It takes two second, click here to sign the petition.Read post →
Here’s a new one from some of my favorite dudes, the Rural Riders. Filmed at the Mogwai park and the legendary Procé bowl in Nantes, it features some great riding from Kevin Gerbault, Vincent Poupinot, Yoann Besnard and Redneck.
LOL. That’s all I got to say.
Mr. Green (whose beats you’ve no doubt heard in a lot of the Animal videos) made a beat using some audio he recorded of Nigel Sylvester riding and had A$AP Ferg rap over it. Ferg even made the chorus about riding. This is pretty dope. Dirt mountains. Check out Green’s description after the jump.Read post →
Prepare yourself for three minutes of NBD’s, WTF’s and OMG’s from one of the best riders out right now. Sunday‘s Erik Elstran has never been one to take himself or his riding too seriously, but that definitely hasn’t stopped him from pushing the limits of fun and what’s possible on a BMX bike. This is gold!!
A few weeks ago we saw a video of Ty Morrow in the streets of LA and today we get a look at what an everyday session is like in San Diego. Even when he’s taking it easy, Ty’s still killing shit!Read post →
“The compilation of a 6 week self funded road trip across western Canada to celebrate regaining health and successful management of chronic crohns colitis, which left me disabled for several years.”
I feel the need to mention there’s a casual as fuck double backflip midway through this joint. Mitch is an underrated boss no doubt, this is long but very much worth a watch. All kinds of neat and cool clips in here you guys ;).Read post →
The Dutch Neck Trails in Red Bank, NJ were recently plowed, which by the looks of it is comparable to someone destroying the Mona Lisa. Always a shitty feeling when your spot gets taken out, but think about riding the same spot everyday for the rest of your life.Read post →
From showing his first backflip footage at 11years old to his classmates and teachers to boosting some of the biggest quarters in the world, Baz Keep talks about his first moment in the air in this new episode.Read post →
Kink announced the addition of three new young shredders to their flow team this week. Shoutout to Tanner Jensen, Josh Pascasio, and Jack Acosta on joining up with an already stacked flow squad including Jacob Cable, Travis Hughes, Matt Miller and Bob Randel. Looking forward to the welcome edits these dudes are currently cooking up!
By this time the week after a big contest, we’re all usually tired of hearing about it, but such couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to Texas Toast. If Props were there last weekend, the video would look a little something like this. Shoutout, again, to Odyssey and all the sponsors who make Toast such a rad weekend. Already looking forward to 2015!Read post →
“Jack Leonard is one of those riders who can ride a curb, a bump or a crack in the sidewalk for hours and make it looks so damn good and this edit is proof positive of that. This one’s short and sweet but, never fear, Jack’s always cookin’ up more in the lab. Press play and watch the dude get down.”
It’s Tuesday and I’m still hyped after the BMX positivity festival known as Texas Toast that ended Sunday. The boys behind the scenes did an incredible job on the event and it was the best it has ever been. In an environment where it seems impossible to please all the different types of riders with one set of ramps for everyone to ride, Ryan Corrigan absolutely smashed the street course design and came up with something for everyone, park and street riders alike. A great course enables great riders to test the limits of their skills and this video shows Garrett Reynolds, Colin Varanyak, Connor Lodes, Dennis Enarson, Simone Barraco and many more doing just that. Stick around to the end to catch a bonus victory jump by Cory Walsh in the Gauntlet Of Death too. So many insane moves in this, hit play and lean back. Or to the left.
S&M just dropped word that Charlie Crumlish and Craig Passero’s signature frames are now available and put together a quick slideshow to give everyone a look at the specs and production paint jobs. Both Tall Boy and Whammo have been hard at work on promos for these frames, so be on the lookout for a couple of bangin’ videos premiering on TCU in November!
Drew went the fuck in for the Northern Embassy contest and came up with one of the most unbelievable video parts I have seen in awhile. The last clip is mind bending, I guess there is legitimately no room between the rail and that sign he taps his back peg on… That moment says a lot for the power of the special meter, the first part of that line boosted him up so much there was no way he wasn’t pulling it. Filmed and edited by James Dean of World Deece fame.
