Drew and Bahlman will both have sections in this full length Bobby Kanode project which is about a year or so in the making. Mediocre At Best will surely be a great representation of the Phoenix scene, and also will definitely feature a lot of creative filming & editing throughout…for the handful of video nerds like myself out there. Make some space in your collection for this one!
This past weekend Broc and Myself headed down to San Diego to chill with Ronnie Nap & Jonas. We rode some bikes, filmed some clips, play ping pong, drank some beers, and had a good time of course… more
I’ve been saying that the new GoPro Hero3 Black is probably the most valuable tool for a pro rider that never has a photographer around for a months now. The thing has amazing quality and with the remote and fast shutter, you can bang out a pic and get it on your sponsors blog the very next day. It’s a win win for everyone! Brendan Jones from our Volume team down under is the newest member and already sent over some cool GoPro remote pics of himself. Keep it up mate! Sorry for the GoPro infomercial, rarely do we hype up anything that we don’t believe in. Click pic to go BIG.
Shooting with Alex is always a treat and this one was no different. You never know what the hell he’s gonna do! The first time Alex tried this he almost pulled a hanger to pop out. When asked if he ever did that before or if he changed his mind on the over tooth, he just said, “Whoa, I didn’t mean to do that.” He’s never done the over tooth before but his second try was flawless. This is Alex’s very first Volume ad that was featured in the latest DIG #94. You can also check out this grind and many more in his last Welcome to Volume Edit. Click image to go BIG.
Broc just got back from his first DansComp trip out to Virginia and Washington DC with filmer Stew Johnson. Here’s a little update from his travels for your Saturday morning…
“Towards the end of our stay in DC, the guy showing us around mentioned a skate plaza that was always vacant that was a good warm up spot. We checked it out and sure enough it was a Maloof Money Cup plaza built in the middle of nowhere that no one really skated/rode. Seeing how much I loved the park Stew suggested we filmed my Welcome to The Team edit there. Without hesitation we started stacking and ended with enough clips! Be on the look of for that dropping soon!”….. more
Our Japanese rider, Akira Sakata, has been staying very busy lately on and off the bike. When he’s not riding or filming, you can find Akira running his new BMX specific shop that he just opened in Sagamihara City, Flourish BMX Shop. It’s always great to see pro riders making an effort to give back to the BMX community. Akira sent over some photos and we were able to translate a couple questions about his shop. Check out the mini-interview after the jump and click the photo above to launch the gallery. more
Broc Raiford has been living out on the West Coast for a bit now, but his homies in Louisiana wanted to send him off right by making him a going away #cutforbroc edit with the crew. This video highlights the non-flatland scene in Louisiana and there are definitely some rad clips by all the locals including Broc. Video credit by William Cespedes.
Day 6 started off with a little re-visit to the pool from Day 3, and then to this train yard gem up in Tate’s hometown of Ogden, Utah. At the pool however, in a sudden strike of role reversal irony, Dolecki took out Tate! Rob was taking a run while Tate was chillin’ in the shallow end, and Rob roasted a big double peg pretty much coming back down directly into him….S&M Challenger stem directly to the back bone! Rob definitely felt really, really bad about it…but after a couple hours Tate ended up being alright and we we all kinda laughed it off… more
Ride just put up this how to with Mr Hosselton on thursday teaching you all about the ins and outs of the footplant whip. Fun fact, Drew actually also just quit his day job as Cornish Pasty chef to blog part time for Ride BMX‘s site.
Raban is a man with many talents and this DG video definitely shows off just a lil’ bit into his riding. His grinds are off the chart and he does some gnarly ones in this edit. Push play and watch the happiest, nicest and funniest guy in BMX kill it!
