If you missed our last post about Volume 1 releasing soon and the DIG feature ‘What’s the Story’, be sure to check it out here>> There’s a ton of insight about the project and what to expect for the series from Mike Mastroni himself.
The Volume 1 features Josh Clemens, DeMarcus Paul and Billy Perry. Drops Dec 1st, don’t miss this one!
Perfect quote to start it off: After finishing up The Finer Things were you and the team eager to work on something straight away?
Definitely. I think everyone is proud of what we accomplished as a team with TFT, however time keeps on ticking and everyone remains eager to film.
Hi-8 camera enthusiast Eric Bahlman dropped his recent “Hi-8 & Good Friends” edit not too long ago and today he followed up with his very own part for you guys. Click to watch Eric casually killing it on the streets, skateparks, pools, & more. As the kids would say today, “Dat fakie manual to invert doe..” Via Dig.
Our favorite strange hairy man, Alex Raban has a Soundtrack feature on DIG bmx with 10 eclectic tracks from his endless arsenal of tuneage. If you’re looking for something to ride to today, give this a listen!
DIG just put up their last gallery piece of Pool’s Gold with this last installment called ‘Minimal Mischief’, be sure to check it out here>>. Check out 1 and 2 of Pool’s Gold while you’re at it.
“One week later, I was back on a plane; looking back, this trip was all I could have hoped for, and a lot more. No, this wasn’t the secret kickoff of filming for Criminal Mischief 2; it was more along the lines of Minimal Mischief with some old friends, with a little trespassing involved, of course.” – DIG
Jason: This was a pool I had been by before, but someone was living in the house and it was sort of off-limits. Then I saw a photo of some dudes riding it, and it was on. It’s different; it’s more of a bank to Jersey barrier. You have more options than you normally would. It was fun. If I owned a house and I commissioned a pool, and they built me that, I’d be like, “What the fuck is this thing?”
DIG just dropped part two of their Pool’s Gold video, and this is the one where the guys go heavy in pools around SoCal. Enns has a slew of good clips in here that you won’t wanna miss! Also check out part 1 if you missed it here>>

If you missed Raban’s 48hr ‘The Finer Things’ release over at DIG, you might have also missed their ‘Crunch Time’ feature with some of the guys on what went down or what they went through throughout filming. There’s some banger photos in there alone worth checking out, so don’t miss this one! This insane gap to ledge ride from Alex Platt is one of the craziest things in the DVD and is all or nothing.

“When the leader of a race enters the final lap at a track meet a bell is rung, and if you’ve fallen behind it’s now or never to get yourself in position to finish strong. The bell rang loud and clear for the Volume team in late October as Texas Toast 2014 was in full swing. The original plan was to premiere the ‘The Finer Things’ DVD at Toast, which would have meant wrapping up filming a couple of months prior. As often happens with full length video projects, the initial release date turned out to be merely a carrot to chase. Volume’s bell lap was a two month long sprint to the tape filled of generator missions, broken bones, last minute flights, bangers, and memories that’ll last a lifetime.” DIG
Alex Raban’s The Finer Things section as well as our “Crunch Time” Article are NOW LIVE over on DIGbmx.com!! Drop what you’re doing and check it out!!
“DIG is proud to present Alex Raban’s section from Volume‘s ‘The Finer Things’ DVD. The very first of the DVD to see the light of day online, but get your views in now because Raban’s amazing part will be viewable for 48 hours and 48 hours only. A true master in the streets showing how it’s done. You can tell us if we are wrong, but I am betting you want to see the rest of this video now…”
If you haven’t noticed by Jason Enns’ Instagram, he’s turned into quite the pool guru these last couple years with finding amazing pools to shred all over California. Recently he took Van Homan, Garrett Byrnes, Mike Escamilla, Keith Mulligan and Rob Dolecki on a scavenger hunt for pools all over SoCal this last week for a new DIG article. Be on the lookout for the feature that will probably drop next month… Euro photo of Enns, shot by Enns via GoPro.
“Zach Krejmas is the hard-working man behind all the Ride BMX edits. Zach, taking a break from one side of the lens to star in front of the other, with a rail hop into a storm door in Brooklyn for the upcoming Doorstep video.” – Dolecki
