After dragging ourselves out of our comfy Travel Lodge early in the morning, we crunched in the van for the 4 hour trek to Dead Sailor Shop in Cornwall. It was another rainy day so we just kicked it inside the shop, drank some tea, ate some Cornish Pastys, and chatted with the locals. Mount Hawke Skatepark was next on the destination list and would also serve as our crashing place for the night. We rode a bit, filmed a couple guys, then crashed out in what felt like a giant college rec room complete with ping pong, pool, tons of couches, and bomb burgers & fries. The following morning Rusty and Bancroft went out of their way to plan a surf lesson for the crew on the shores of Cornwall. We all expected the water to be completely freezing but to our surprise it was super nice…it was also bright and sunny for the entire day which was definitely a welcome change from all the rain. Although I didn’t personally get in above my knees, everyone was killing it for a couple hours in the water and we all had a great time just kickin it on the beach. I’m sure nobody on the trip ever thought riding BMX would end up giving them the opportunity to go surfing in England….Thanks again to the Elephant guys for setting that up! To make a good day even better, we packed up the van and headed to Plymouth for our first street session of the trip. We didn’t come across a ton of stuff, but it felt great to just be pedaling around outside in an interesting city. We did manage to get a couple clips on top of that too from the likes of Broc, Kris, and Rob….who also broke the hard hit record on the punching bag machine at the kebab shop. Great day!

Day 4 started out with an early visit to Pusher BMX for some much needed bike maintenance, and to kick it with our bud Clay. From there we headed back to the yellow flat rail spot to take care of some un-finished bizz. Ever the explorer, it didn’t take Jason long to find this disgusting thing on the ground. Believe it or not it used to be flesh colored. While we were all inserting bottles into this thing, Broc was busy making a little wooden lip up onto this low roof..on which he ended up filming some dope shit. Chipotle hit the spot for lunch and after we ate we randomly ran into our friend Joof from Jersey on the street..small world! We checked out a few more spots in the afternoon while dodging the spotty rain that seemed to be following us around…all things considered I think we won. Tack a couple awesome night clips in there and that was pretty much our day. Stay tuned for more tomorrow! CLICK IMAGE TO LAUNCH GALLERY! All photos by Joey Cobbs.

Our last days in Salt Lake were filled with fun times, much ping-pong, spot searching, great clips, and unfortunately a little more bad luck on my part. All things aside tho it was a great time! Here’s Tate eying up a little gem we found in his hometown while I make sure he doesn’t get glass in his palms. Continue reading…. more

When we all managed to actually wake up and pull it together, day 4 started off nicely with big breakfast and some balcony relaxation at our haunted hotel. Broc stepped out of the van with a jug of pee asking if we wanted some lemonade, and then conquered his fear of ghosts for a second and finally came upstairs for some food….we’re all so proud of him. From there some of the crew went out and pedaled around Bisbee in search of spots for the day, and we ended up finding this crazy tunnel setup with a near impossible uphill runway… more

I love having Bahlman around in sticker spirit on trips. Anyway, Day 4 spot one. Where’s the spot you may ask? As much as I’d like to say it’s the semi truck, thaaat would be an ABD. Use your imagination, get cre-Tate-ive…. 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

After a night of abandoning our shitty hotel in favor of one without bed bugs and scumbags surrounding the parking lot, we met up with Kink’s Chad Osborn and headed out to Fresno High to get the session rolling. That school was seriously stacked and it didn’t take very long for the creative juices to start flowing….

On Saturday we headed down to London for the Dub BMX Jam. The weather unfortunately was not on our side, but that didn’t stop everyone from throwing down at the banks spot under the overhang. The out-ledge in particular got the most of it, with insane tricks and lines. Stevie absolutely killed it and wowed everyone with his burly & technical consistency, even when the floor was soaking wet. More tales from the day below…
