Raban decided to hop in his little brown car, drive down the coast, and grace us with his presence over the weekend which is always an absolute treat. We tagged along with Ride BMX‘s Zach Krejmas and Jeff Z on Saturday a they worked on their projects, and witnessed Raban put a beat down on numerous spots around the LA area. Will the funky shirt/tuck combo become a trend in 2015? We don’t know yet, but if it does, Raban and Krejmas may be responsible. CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY.
I just finished reading Mike and Richie’s RIDEbmx interview and thought it was not only refreshing to read something out of the norm but also what they said about each others sport, how they go about their tricks/spots, their approach, and much more. Big ups to RIDE and Jeff Z for making this one happen, I haven’t been this stoked on an interview in a bit. Photo by Jeff Z/ RIDEBMX. Check it out in the latest May/ June RIDE here >>

As everyones’ initial buzz from releasing The Finer Things is slowly fading, we’re all very eager to get back out in the streets & work on our next video project. Leading the here pack is Josh Clemens who’s been working full time at the office, and seemingly riding full time on the weekends as well. Here’s some quick photos from yesterday afternoon.

“For our March/April issue, we contacted our contributing photographers with an idea…an idea to shoot a photo at a specific time on a specific day. The goal was to show a glimpse at the sheer amount of BMX that happens all over the country (and world). The results we got back were more than we hoped for. 16 photographers from 10 different cities came together to shoot for this project and it’s almost staggering to realize that it all happened at the same exact time. Thank you to everyone (see below) who took part in the project…maybe we’ll do another next year?” – RIDEbmx
If you want the full story and back story on a lot of the photos, please pick up the Mar/Apr issue of the mag.
For all those that have seen The Finer Things DVD, you might remember seeing this curved wallride in the beginning of Mike’s section? Not only did he do the wallride but he timed it to the elevator door opening up right after he lands. While Mike has been behind the scenes, his section is one of my favorites and is a must see for anyone that likes original/creative riding. Photo by Devin Feil. BUY THE DVD HERE >>
