Sadly for the the boys on the East Coast, they’ve now entered indoor park season AKA the yearly dark ages. But each Winter they make the best of it and get through it thanks to skateparks like Half Pipe Thrills. This edit was extremely solid for just an hour long session and all these dudes did some rad stuff but Mark Burnett in particular came through with some extra heavy moves and an incredible ender that totally caught me by surprise.
Even if Anton lives in one of the coldest country in the world (Iceland), he always delivers! This new video is no exception and he came through with some really impressive stuff filmed in freezing conditions! Respect! The streets of Reykjavik are full of amazing spots and that first clip where he breaks the street light is hilarious!
Troy Merkle spent this past summer filming for this new Daily Grind video and the result is more than enjoyable! Rocket icepicks, rail rides, over smiths…this will definitely get you stoked on riding! Follow him @troymerkle
The Gully Factory just dropped this new Clippeach featuring Jeff Wescott, Berto, and Trent McDaniel. This truly makes me miss good weather for those of us that still decide to live in places with seasons. Rest in peace summer, shoutout to Berto for joining the dad’s that shred club. I’m not actually sure if that’s a club.
Check out highlights from the Etnies / Cinema jam and the Dan’s Comp Roll Call premiere that went down this past weekend in Long Beach. A handful of the Dan’s team, including Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams, Tony Neyer and Dakota Roche were on hand at the MLK park and all came through with a some dope clips.
Ben Basford spent a few weeks in ATX earlier this year, and flew home with a bunch of awesome clips for Kink under his belt. I really like the no-music feel, that long feeble to footjam and the last clip. Couldn’t get any better than how he did it.
Michael traveled a good bit to reach the totally real island of New Caledonia for this one, and the results are a great watch. Michael’s hula-hoop style whiplashes and no-handed switches punctuate this striking meditative edit.
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.
“It has been a weird and strange year. When I get stressed I jump on the bike. When I am really unhappy and lost I jump on the bike. This is an accurate representation of how I am when I bike. I scream, laugh, and take some slams. Either way I like to get savage on my bike. 2013 was savage.
Remember how your grandma’s dying wish was to see someone do a fastplant to railride and crankflip out? Show granny @ 1:09 and she can die happy. Tons of exciting shit happening in this one featuring Scott Ditchburn, Harry Mills-Wakley and a bunch of others. I have a feeling this will be my favorite skatepark edit of the month. Also, be sure to get yourself a copy of The Prospects “Why So Serious” DVD, out now.
This new split Embassy video of Colin Thiessen and Shawn Franz goes hard! Watch it! “Colin is one steezy street rider and ramp destroyer who rides fast and keeps it simple. Franz has a deep bag of INSANELY technical tricks and lives up to his nick name “SHOWTIME”.
This new Division Brand video from their Russian connect Ivan Nikolaev is straight fire! From the first clip to the very last, Ivan destroys every single rail in front of him and shreds soooooooo many amazing set-ups. Russia is the holy land (minus the weather). That last clips is probably the dopest thing I’ve seen in while! Peep this and follow @divisionbrand
While Mario Carrasco was home in Albuquerque for Thanksgiving he met up with Chris “Faze” Foehse, Johnny Atencio, Rob Diquattro, and Erik Elstran for a Saturday afternoon session. After warming up at the Los Altos park they hit the streets, ending the day with a serious barrage of tricks down a perfect rail.
Hell yeah, today Subrosa blesses the internet with Simone Barraco’s part from Get Used To It! He didn’t have as much time to film as the rest of the team, but still managed to beast out one of the best sections in the video on just a handful of trips. So smooth, so steezy, so good!
Part two of The Bakery’s Secret Recipe sees the middle section of the building get absolutely murked by the likes of Dak Roche, Nathan Williams, Broc Raiford, Stevie Churchill, Devon Smillie, Timmy Theus, Bruno Hoffman and more. Almost four minutes of straight heat in this one!
Nokia Pureviews sent Simone Barraco off to Cuba with Hadrien Picard in tow to document the experience on the island with a Lumia 1020 camera phone. Hadrien did a fantastic job capturing Simone’s riding, along with a glimpse into the BMX scene and the beautiful scenery Cuba has to offer.
I don’t know how, but it seems like every BSD video that drops is better than the last. This is just a trailer but I could probably watch it a few times- so enthralling. The full DVD will be included with Ride UK‘s next issue.
Part 3 of SAF‘s newest project features young guns Sada Higashi and Johnny Monaco but also has appearances from the rest of the crew. The fourth and final part is also included here for your viewing pleasure. Can’t wait to see the next full-length.
