Our Japanese rider, Akira Sakata, just sent over this new edit of the Flourish crew shredding Oyama Skate Park. In case you missed it a couple months ago, check out the Volume & Demolition in Japan video, which shows the crew make a stop at Akira’s shop, Flourish BMX Shop.

Mediocre at Best: Drew Hosselton from Bobby Kanode on Vimeo.
Drew may be a magical wizard of sorts underneath his seemingly normal BMX rider exterior, and if you watch closely there’s certainly proof of this theory in this video part. Certain tricks/obstacles conquered within this section have previously been deemed impossible or un-attainable by all of Arizona BMX mankind. Note the curvewall to flat wall to curvewall at :43, managing to find probably the only legit storm door in all of Arizona at 1:58, the tree crankarm at 2.40, and obviously the final line. How does gravity allow Drew to stick to the dead space in the middle of the wall? How does he slide sharp metal pedal pins across squishy bark?…or backwards manual plates that aren’t even attached to anything?? Obviously some sort of magical powers only possessed by Drew. Here’s to being inventive, here’s to now…

Currently not exactly this, but probably something just like it…only separate and in the future. I’ve made the trek out to Salt Lake once again to film with the one and only Tate Roskelley for his upcoming section in The Finer Things. Keep an eye out for some updates from our time out here, which may be including but limited to: photos of Tate looking at spots, photos of Elf, Faygo, water features, goat-head thorns, tandem bikes, etc…really just wherever the day takes us. Stay tuned for all of that & for now enjoy our split section from OSS’s “Ruin Your Whole Summer” which Tate hates.

Our International Rider from Estonia, Erik Orgo, just came through with this amazing 2014 Edit! Erik rides everything but this edit shows that he can definitely hold it down in the streets. The last clip is insane! Cheers to On Wheels Distribution for setting this up and Rene Lutterus for the edit.

For this Flashback post, I was cruising through our vimeo page and came across this amazing Best Of Jason Enns edit that we put out in 2008. Check it out and get hyped for another Jason Enns video part in The Finer Things DVD, dropping later this year!

Last month we went to Japan with some Demolition dudes & the help of Motocross International Distribution. We got to visit a ton of awesome shops, some amazing skateparks & street quareterpipes, and of course filmed some clips along the way for you to enjoy. Check out Broc and Raban killing it along with the likes of Dennis Enarson, Tyler Fernengel, Kris Fox, & Connor Lodes. Big thanks again to Motocross International for making this trip a reality, and for taking such good care of us during our stay over there.

With the heat getting around 115 degrees in the Arizona Summer, there’s definitely not a lack of pools and makes up for some great pool finds. Drew Hosselton and friends made this rad pool video shot around AZ and came through with a gallery and interview too. Check it all out at RIDEbmx.
“There’s not really anything revolutionary you are going to do in a pool, so it’s more about filming what’s fun or exhilarating and just hope it translates well to video.” – Hoss

DeMarcus, Chad Kerley and John Stafford get down at their local park. I would imagine this is just another day for these guys at the park having fun. Damn!! Filmed by Miles Rogoish

Today we are very proud to share with you the trailer for our upcoming full length DVD, The Finer Things! We’ve been steadily putting in work for the better part of a year and a half and I couldn’t be more excited about everyone’s footage thus far. Here’s a little taste of what to expect in the fall from Broc, Enns, D, Tate, Raban, DeMarcus, Bahlman, Platt, Krejmas and myself & more. Enjoy and follow along with #WATCHTHEFINERTHINGS on Instagram!”

TATE ROSKELLEY – KILLJOY from Jordan Utley on Vimeo.
With Tate’s OSS Video well on it’s way to another million views, this certainly seems like an appropriate time for his Killjoy section to come out online. This part is definitely one of Tate’s finest! It’s always funny to me when riders nerd out on “firsts” when you have people like Tate re-inventing the BMX wheel daily on a level all his own. Just go to show you kids, you should never ever do anything different than what everyone else is doing…. Watch ten times and go find a new way to use your bike/mind.
