The Finer Things: Escape To AZ Day 1.

Mastroni | 12.4.14

For as long as California has been located next to Arizona and people have been using bicycles to do tricks on street obstacles, AZ has been the ideal destination for great spots, footage gathering, and good times. I decided to make a little last minute trip out here to film a bit more with ‘The Wonder Twins’ Cody & Dawson Clark as well as Drew and Bahlman. Broc and Demarcus also hopped in the van and here we are trying to wrap up some loose ends out here in the desert. Here’s some photos from yesterday, the above by Devin Feil.

Hoss’ August Update

Drew has had a busy couple of months with locking up his Finer Things part, traveling, working and now is on the Tea and Biscuits tour. Read below what the man himself has to say. Photo by Greg Moliterno
“Its been nothing but busy times here in Arizona this summer. I have been getting ready for Elephant Distro Tea and Biscuits Part 2 (which I’m on now) week in the UK. When the trip is over I will be hanging behind in Europe for a couple weeks to travel around with some homies, should be dope. I had Mastroni and Platt come to town last week and I am stoked to say we wrapped up my part for the Finer Things DVD which should be out in a few months. So with a rad trip in the very new feature and finishing up a video part we have been working on for the past year and a half or so I gotta say life has been pretty good lately.” Love, Drew

Last December when I was in AZ for the week on vacation I escaped the in-laws and hooked up with Drew and Eric at this famous Phoenix spot.  We got kicked out after I got up all my gear but later set everything back up to get this long ass ice to table.  Is there anything he can’t throw a table out of!!  Later we witnessed a crackhead OD for a bit, which scared us all but he got up after he got an adrenaline shot and hopped back on a beach cruiser to ride away.  Never a dull movement while in Phoenix…  Click photo to go big.

Holy f#%k! What more could you even ask for from Drew? This desert dwelling afro enthusiast spot pimp from Arizona comes thru yet again with an amazing video for Demolition filled with the most unique spots, setups, and trick ideas to start your week off right. Shouts to Greg Moliterno for doing such a great job on this as well. This is BMX at it’s finest…

Drew & Bahlman Split Edit.

Mastroni | 05.7.13

Self proclaimed cowboy Drew Hoss and Eric Bahlman teamed up with local skate filmer Bill Brown over the past couple months in Arizona and produced what’s safe to say is going to be a timeless web video. This edit is the perfect blend of style, progressive riding, and excellent spot use….with an underlying best buds vibe and smiles throughout. There’s so much shit in here that will wow you even after the second or third watch. Shoutout to you two for killing it so hard and Bill for doing an excellent job behind the lens….Well what are you waiting for…check it out!

Volume Bikes: Drew Hosselton Skatepark Quickie. from 180 Distribution on Vimeo.

This was originally supposed to be for something else that didn’t end up happening, but regardless….me and Drew found ourselves at the skatepark one afternoon and this fun little edit is the result of roughly an hour session with some friends. If you are interested in that beautiful yellow splattery thing Drew is riding, head HURR.

Bro Safari & UFO – “2012”

Volume In Arizona: Days 4 & 5 In Tuscon.

Mastroni | 12.10.12

For our final days of our short and sweet Arizona adventure we decided pack up and head east for two days and a night of endless spots, nonstop riding, and of course our usual shenanigans. How cool are we right? Yeah we know. Check our our Tuscon good times below..

Volume In Arizona: Day 3.

Mastroni | 12.6.12

VBC (Vacation Bible Camp??) Day 3 started off with some heat from Broc and Matt Cordova (above truckin’ by Erik Hilburn) at this amazing bank to rail spot that you may recognize from Road Fools 11 in which Steven Hamilton abubaca’d it…which is insane by the way. Now that bikes are significantly lighter and 18 year old kids are built like Hercules, Broc was able to step to the task of bunnyhopping up to pegs on that rail from the backside, to over into the bank. The person with the highest bunnyhop on Road Fools 11 would be Mr. Kimbrough and I doubt the thought of doing a pegs to over at this spot when they were there even crossed his mind. My how times have changed ey? Peep another photo of the above setup and more from our day below…

Volume In Arizona: Day 2.

Mastroni | 12.4.12

Ah yes, the perfect spot that ruined everyone’s buttholes and testicles was how our second day in the desert began….well, almost everyone. Bahlman on the other hand (above) jumped in and laced the most perfect ice to table first effin try. Victor was not so lucky and got claimed by an ice 180. Broc actually managed a dope crankarm 180 as well, but not before credit-carding his setup a few times. I have a pretty deece clip of Broc going around the corner and examining his own ass to see if there was any serious damage…whatever he was doing back there definitely did not look entirely heterosexual. More below…

Volume In Arizona: Day 1.

Mastroni | 12.3.12

It’s Monday Monday Monday and that means that we get to start dropping some daily updates on you for the duration of your work/school week showcasing our time out here in Arizona. Drew Hoss hit me up a little while ago about Gordy’s Bike Shop‘s big annual jam on December 1st, so I decided wrangle up the likes of Broc Raiford, Billy Perry, Matt Cordova, and Victor Galindo(g), to make the trek out into the desert to meet up with Drew and Eric Bahlman for a little last minute filming trip based around the Jam. After a long night of driving and surviving we made it to the shop for Saturday morning. Check out mucho photos courtesy of Erik Hilburn aka “Evil Joey” below, but not before giving Cordova’s nac nac seat grab above a second or third look….how does that even make sense!?
