Thanks to Jeff Z and the dudes at Ride, plus photographers Joey Cobbs and Greg Moliterno, we have a lengthy article in the newest November 2014 issue all about our upcoming DVD The Finer Things. Everyone involved here is quite the individual, so I wrote a bunch about what it’s like filming with each person, and of course answered some questions about the overall project itself. For all you kids out there who have never looked at a BMX magazine, you are missing out on some of the most quality BMX content in existence and are pretty much royally blowing it for the future of all BMX mankind. Just like a DVD itself, you can HOLD a magazine in your hand…what crazy concept right?? Don’t be a kook, pick one up or SUBSCRIBE today!

Tate Avoids Getting Decapitated

Tate superbike slide

As most photographers/ videographers out there, I always get excited to shoot photos with Tate, hands down one of my top 5 guys to shoot with.  While his riding style gets a lot of mixed reactions, you can’t deny that it’s refreshing, and the photos are always interesting to say the least.  When I first found this abandoned auto garage, I immediately thought of Tate and to have him do one of his superbike slides on the slick floor.  Needless to say he slid it so far that he thought it would be cool to shut the door so that he barely gets out.  Love when a plan comes together!  Click photo to go big
