Nate Richter is back at it with the instagram slams! For this episode he got together with Lahsaan Kobza , Tom Villarreal , Adam Accardi , Michael Harkous, Cody Scott Perry and some locals and they came through with this banging piece!
Just yesterday our good friend Mark Burnett got promoted to the Sunday pro team and dropped a hammer of a welcome edit. Today we’re happy to present an Instagram Slam that he filmed with fellow rising star, Matt Ray (who has at least one amazing web videos dropping soon) and a bunch of the locals at the Rye Airfield skatepark out in New Hampshire. Steven Robert handled the production and I’ll let him take it from here:
“I’ve always wanted to do an Instagram Slam with Mark Burnett, but due to work and injuries, we weren’t able to do it until now. Everyone put in work for this slam and Matt Ray does one of the most insane skate park clips I have ever witnessed. Unfortunately Jake got hurt pretty early into the session so we weren’t able to get any clips from him. Also for any of you, who haven’t heard of Jay Dalton, prepare yourselves…Now sit back and enjoy the Slam and if you aren’t already, follow the crew.

For the return of the Instagram Slam we decided to get a bunch of heavy hitters from LA’s various crews together to session the Lincoln Skatepark flat rail. The place is usually swarmed with skaters so we brought out the lights and rode it at night. Our crew consisted of Brandon Begin, Steve Croteau, Tony Neyer, Xavier Wulf, Miles Rogoish, Adam22 (me), Lil D, Alfredo Mancuso, Michal Smelko, Aaron Brenner, Christian Martinez and Daniel Yanez. A lot of crazy tricks went down and we all had a lot of fun, thanks to Miles for holding that heavy ass camera for 3 hours while we everyone did a continuous loop around the skatepark trying to get their tricks.

For the past 8 months or so we’ve been posting the Instagram Slams on the secondary YouTube channel (which has now been renovated to include just single clips, crashes and other quick videos) but as of today the Slams are officially returning to the big channel. For our first edition back we’ve got Devon Smillie, Alec Siemon, Jacob Cable, Julian Arteaga and a bunch of other members of the Common Crew killing it in the streets. Filmed by Francis Castro, hosted by Sauce The Boss.
We’d been talking about doing an Instagram Slam with the Chicago locals since the winter broke this past spring, but due to travel/injuries/work, we weren’t able to link up with everyone until mid-summer. We were able to meet up on a windy but beautiful Chicago summer day and had a lot of laughs getting this one done. Brian Kachinsky, Timmy Theus, Kevin Porter, Trent McDaniel all take some requests and some of Chitown’s up and comers get some shine time as well. Watch the guys bust out some normal and not so normal moves above and give ’em all a follow on Instagram if you aren’t already.

Today’s Instagram Slam features Justin Spriet, Jared Duncan, Jacob Bush, Joel Bush, Kiefer Green and Beau Harmon AKA The Murrieta Crew killing the Fergusson skatepark. These kids are all ridiculously good. If you’re into this, check out the trailer for their upcoming video:

Last month Midwesterners Jeff Wescott, Grant Castelluzo, Mike Hinkens, Dan Kruk and Dylan McCauley posted up at the famous Deck Park in Arizona and took your requests for Instagram Slam #30. 2,966 comments later, they got a ton of stuff done, including Grant barring on everyones bike and going fast, Hinkens telling you what you’re gonna get and cabbing out of it, Jeff Wescott doing whatever the hell he wants, a little two dudes one bike scenario and a bunch of good tricks for this spot.
Last week in Germany I met up with Daniel Tunte and Fernando Laczko at the skatepark in Berlin for an Instagram Slam. We got some unbelievable stuff done and towards the end Dan Lacey and Nathan Williams showed up for guest clips along with a brief appearance by famed videographer Rich Forne. Enjoy and subscribe to @thecomeupbmx on Instagram so you can request some tricks next time!
Also this was a fun way for me to test out YouTube’s subtitle tool so turn them on if you don’t speak fluent German.
Last week Stevie Churchill, Dan Paley, Brandon Begin, Mikey Tyra, Alfredo Mancuso and Mike Curley rode with John Hicks and filmed this new Instagram Slam. Quick guest appearance from famed samurai/rapper Xavier Wulf. If you want to get involved in the next one make sure to follow @thecomeupbmx on Instagram. Follow these guys too:
Kanode put together this really dope slam featuring the Subrosa team with notable trickery from Simone Barraco, Ditchburn with some crazy x-ride shit, Lahsaan, Kyle Hart, Joris Coulomb and the rest of the squad. The intro clip is a little sequel of sorts to the intro of the Mediocre At Best DVD that is definitely worth the watch alone. Peep dar.
The Colony Bikes team is enjoying the California sunshine for the next month and to celebrate their arrival to LA they decided to IG Slam it up at the LAX Berrics Plaza for the camera of Mr. Hicks. All the dudes threw down, but Jack Kelly really put the team on his back for this one doe!
Don’t forget to follow The Come Up on instagram for your chance to call out tricks for your favorite pros!
Chris Brown did such a good job hosting this shit I heard he’s been turning down offers from every late night show on television since it dropped. Tom Villareal, Jackson Ratima, Raul Ruiz, Jesse Whaley and Nate “The People’s Champ” Richter all kill it so hit play and see what kind of Instagram demands they ended up meeting.
A while back Nate Richter edited together a bunch of the crashes from all of the Instagram Slam videos he’s filmed for us over the past year and I forgot about it til today. Watch this to see some fairly hilarious crashes from guys like Rooftop, Biz, Dylan Stark, DGAF Dan and more.
Earlier this week the Common boys made their way to the Santa Ana skatepark to throw down your requests for Instagram Slam #27. Catch clips from Travis Hughes, Jacob Cable, Denim Cox, Bobby Holland and our own Ovenmaster, Sauce the Boss. Shoutout to L1L Debbie, Josh Irvine and everyone who sent in comments. Be sure to follow @thecomeupbmx to get your requests in on the next Instagram Slam!
We braved the cold in Round Rock, Texas yesterday to try and do some tricks in the cold and it was definitely funny as fuck seeing everyone struggle to get these tricks done. The 28 degree temp soaked up the camera battery life quick, but we still managed to get a bunch of your trick requests done while Kareem slept in Seeley’s car instead of hosting or doing any tricks himself. Thanks to Kareem, Seeley, Elstran, Brian Hunt, Brandon Dosch, Devon Lampmanual, my dog da Stan man and everyone else who came outdoors to help make this video happen. Hope you enjoy!
Last week the WTP team were on a trip all over California with their team consisting of Raul Ruiz, Andrew Jackson, Marcus Grubbs, Mikey Tyra and Brandon Begin. One night we all met up at a skatepark and got a late night session in for Instagram Slam 25. I helped out with the intro and even Stevie jumped in to call out a trick.
When the Shadow guys told me they were going to film an Instagram Slam on their recent roadtrip to Phoenix I had no idea it would come out this awesome. Joris and Seth Kimbrough were both hurt but the rest of the team (Trey Jones, Lahsaan Kobza, Simone Barraco, Eric Bahlman, Drew Bezanson, Ben Hucke, Scott Ditchburn, Cody Clark, Dawson Clark, Paul Ryan, Albert Mercado and Mariano Santiago) all held it down with some help from Kyle Hart and filmer, Ryan Chadwick. Watch the whole way through so you don’t miss Trey Jones doing a front flip.

Thanks a bunch to Ryan Chadwick, Wes Mcgrath and of course the big boss man Ronnie B.
Sandwich Stevie Churchill and Brandon Begin out here in LA for almost 2 weeks working on a bunch of different project. They’re each filming full length street edits, we’re doing a couple of different skatepark edits, we’re going to do some behind the scenes style edits and of course, we had to do an Instagram Slam. We met up at the El Dorado Park in Long Beach and had the boys fire out some tricks for our loyal @thecomeupbmx followers.
