Pardon the lack of daily updates. Between hours in the van, filming, and sleeping the Wifi situation has been pretty scarce when I need it. All that aside, here’s the rundown: Day 3 we started off the morning with a traditional english breakfast and our first weather permitting outdoor session of the trip at this awesome downhill concrete park called Dean Lane or “Deenar” in Bristol not to be confused with Deaner from Fubar. Everyone was killing it and Broc, Drew, and Kris managed to get some lines in the bag before our visit to Crucial BMX for the afternoon. It was a great turnout and it was real cool to kick it with the owner Scott who had actually came over and stayed with me in the US a couple years back. The highlight of the day was definitely seeing a local kid who only had one arm & rode by wearing a hoody and tying the extra sleeve to his grip. He managed to pull a 540 on the quarter to bank setup and everyone lost it. That was one of those life moments where you realized that nothing should stop you from doing anything…very inspiring. Hats off to you man! After the shop we headed out for a night on the town….everyone consumed some beverages, got loose, threw some shit in the river, etc. Stay tuned for more as they come.

With Mr Cobbs finally arriving to the party I’ll finally have some proper photos to show ya. Since it rained all day on Sunday, yesterday (Tuesday) can count as official day 3. I actually didn’t even think about this when planning this trip, but as an added bonus school is out for the summer….which means 1000 more spots to ride during our stay here. So, yesterday we did exactly that with Platt, J Clem, and Broc all getting some serious hammers in the bag at this first spot. From there we rode a few other schools, the best flat rails in the world, and capped it off with Drew grinding his way out of the closet right before picking up Enns & Krejmas at the airport… CLICK IMAGE TO LAUNCH GALLERY!

Day friggin’ 3 ey? Yesterday had the crew (for the most part) feeling pretty back on a normal sleeping pattern after struggling with the jet lag the first couple nights. The first order of business was a quick stop by BMX RIO were we got to meet cool locals and obstruct bicycle commuter traffic on the sidewalk. After that we headed over to Flourish BMX, which is owned by our dude Akira Sakata. It was dope to get to meet him and see what his shop was all about. It’s a relatively new shop but the vibe is was super on point, plus with the skatepark right next-door the shop is bound to thrive & help the local scene grow. From the shop we headed over to said skatepark, sessioned with the locals, flimed some clips, and had a blast. What more could you ask for right?…maybe just some authentic Japanese ramen. Boom.

As most of you have probably already seen on Instagram and etc, our third day here in Salt Lake wasn’t exactly a walk in the park for DeMarcus, but on the brighter side it definitely didn’t start out that way… more

Day 4 started out at what we think was an old abandoned meat packing plant or something. Seems like an unlikeley spot for any conventional spots I know, but sometimes you gotta think outside the box, or in this case the giant meat freezer, to find some new interesting things to ride. Here’s Broc and I bullying Tate after he instructed us to “not push him all the way around this time…” more

Day trizzle was a super productive one filled with amazing spots and laughs for days, which is exactly what we came here for. We got all these lazy assholes out the house somewhat early for a change, and we met up with Wes who brought us over to this first downhill ditch/bank spot. Drew actually filmed a dope line with this being the middle move, but Joey made this photo look extra dope so this is now the official photo of the day. It’s also especially crazy given that he has a coaster. See Raban about to rob a bank below… more

Where the hell do I even start? We are having entirety too much fun on this trip! From visiting the most interesting abandoned buildings, to hiking up mountains in the middle of nowhere, to mobbing thru rivers in the van…the ghost town part of the trip has officially begun… more

Still nothing but good times here in good ol’ Texas! Here’s yesterday morning’s riding scene at the first spot with Drew Hoss getting it in. Drew may or may not be running a freecoaster now, and lets just say that he could very well be on his way to becoming a four pegged afro version of Ian Scwartz. He’s already got the farming thing down too… more
