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.
Pro snowboarder, Trevor Jacob has a skatepark compound at his house up north, and gave out the invite to Rooftop, DMC, Chris Arriaga and Enns for the day. Needless to say, I think anyone looking at the photos of his place would definitely be jealous of what he has just a few steps away from his front door. Check more to see more photos of Enns getting it on at Trevor’s “home office”.
When I first saw Enns ride in an old Props at Section 8 skatepark, I was blown away. He was doing insane shit on the spine mini there and giving the well known pros a run for their money. Later down the road, his riding progressed and he took those tech ramp moves to the street, and found that building/ finding spots was half the battle to every good photo/ video part. Every time we visited J in Vancouver, he had his “book” of spots that nobody else knew about, and probably nobody knows where they are to this day. He later found that modifying a possible spot with a bit of Quickrete, or whatever else, would make the ideal spot too. Today, he’s in SoCal and doing the same thing he’s always done, check his interview about it all. Read now! more
For anyone who’s already seen the video, you know Jason’s section is a standout to say the least. With a seemingly endless arsenal of unique spots combined with his creative & calculated approach to riding them, Jason is comparable to a fine wine…he only gets better with age. Here’s a wallride to pocket wallride on this crazy bridge setup in Arizona shot by Greg Moliterno which you can now set as your wallpaper. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can pick one at your local Volume dealer, favorite mailorder, or RIGHT HERE in our webstore.
Well actually Saturday, but today is Tuesday so yeah…you get it. Anyway, over the weekend Jason and I ventured off into the California wilderness in search of some tubular clips for his upcoming DVD section, and said clips we did achieve! In fact, they are some of the coolest clips I’ve ever filmed hands down…very hyped! Without giving too much away, here’s a few iPhone snaps from our journey and a random one of my bike on the beach for good B&W measure. In other news Demarcus, Broc, and I are trekking out to Arizona for a few days to meet up with Drew Hoss and Cody Clark & get away from all this rain, so stay tuned for some more updates from our travels over the next few days.
Everyday we’re inching closer and closer to wrapping up the filming process for The Finer Things. For the past few days my favorite creative partner in crime Mr. Roskelley has been in town trying to wrap up his section for the DVD, along with fellow Utah representative and Demolition dude Rob Wise to work on a new fork promo. Here’s some fun photos from our Friday afternoon out in the deepest depths of California’s anus…also known as San Bernardino with Broc, J-Clem, Enns, Tate, and Myself by Joey Cobbs Photography LLC. If you can figure out what we’re up to with that plastic tube…you’re probably very, very smart. CLICK IMAGE TO EXPAND GALLERY.
In the early 2000′s the LA to Portland or LA to Vancouver and any variation of either was the most common road trip we seemed to take. I havent been on that route in well over 5 years now, so when I got the call to work the Dew Tour stop in Portland I jumped at the chance. And choosing to drive instead of flying. It was the perfect opportunity to do one of my favorite drives again and revisit some old spots and parks. I called Rooftop to see if he was down, and from there the trip was on. With a real loose plan and the only thing set in stone being that Saturday in Portland for Dew Tour street we set off. With no video camera in the car and no worry about a clip count, the only goal was fun. Being up and down Interstate 5 countless times, this was the first time I would do the drive down the Oregon and California coast which is truly amazing. Here are a few photos from some of the random stops and finds along the way. – JASON ENNS Click to open the gallery>> more
For this Flashback post, I was cruising through our vimeo page and came across this amazing Best Of Jason Enns edit that we put out in 2008. Check it out and get hyped for another Jason Enns video part in The Finer Things DVD, dropping later this year!
We’re stoked to announce that our veteran pro, Jason Enns scored this months BMX Plus! cover. Chris Arriaga got over the high res of the cover to us and had to run it, plus a mini interview with Jason after the jump. Click top photo to view the full cover more
Instead of going on and on about how these two (Jason Enns and Rooftop) find spots, I’m going to run on about how rad this shot is of Enns by legendary rider and NY Times contributing photographer Mike Escamilla are. I have no idea when he took up photography, maybe when he picked up GoPro as a sponsor? Regardless, his photos are getting better and better each time I see em and working on “small” projects with a small paper like the NY Times doesn’t hurt the ol’ portfolio either. It also doesn’t hurt when you have a good subject (Enns) every time you go out riding and shooting. This photo of Enns’ euro air was taken in some run down skatepark in the middle of B.F.E.
