The act of shooting a dope sequence in BMX I feel is generally pretty overlooked. Sure, not everything makes an awesome sequence but even when it does, we rarely (for whatever reason) will use a sequence over an awesome single frame for things like ads and so-fourth. Why? I really don’t know…but I do know that I’m definitely down with the sequence……(oooooo wa ah ah ahh) Here’s Raban with a crook to feeble 180 bar by Joey Cobbs from our Volume In California Trip way back when…

Another one from deep within the endless Volume blog photo pit. Here’s Mr. Hoss mid-line on our ABQ trip last year spring flinging this fence while wearing his favorite fall sweater. I tried to tell him the whole line wouldn’t really work out for the clip, yet he was very deFENCEive about the whole thing. Joey Cobbs on the trigger.

When DeMarcus first got on the team, Joey (Cobbs) went out to shoot some photos of him for his Team Page and came back with some solid photos. This one in particular was saved for this very point in time. Full speed up the big ass bank to no-hander over the rail. Click image to go big >>

Joey Cobbs went out to the FOD jumps to shoot Matt and came back with a couple banger pics. This one in particular made me say out loud, “holy Sh*!, he’s backwards!” Click top pic to view the whole ad.

I’ve been wanting to do a Raban bike check for awhile now since his bikes always look so amazing. Alex’s bikes are always bedazzled out whether it be gold or coppered out. And just like his personality, there’s always a hint of originality and a bit of flavor. Check out his bike after you click the top picture and you can also read what he’s been up to. more

Going through Joey Cobbs photos from the guys’ last trip in New Mexico, I saw this lil’ gem of Broc doing a big ol’ bars over the rail from the bump. Perfect setup, trick and photo. This is what makes good wallpapers. Click to go big or right click to save to your desktop.

Mike Jonas was on hand at the Clairemont Markit jam a couple weeks back to shred the park and hang with the rest of the Markit dudes. Joey Cobbs caught Mike doing these crazy brakeless fufanu and abubacas on the sub rail and posted them up on the Demolition Parts blog, where we stole them from. Check out Vicente photo bombing the shot after the jump, haha. more

With the Markit DVD now out and already blowing minds I figured it was a good time to get this cool pic of Mike out there. Mike’s part in Markit Zero is absolutely insane and if you like crazy action and nollie tricks, you definitely don’t want to miss his part. Shoe-bubaca above is from the last Markit filming trip in Barcelona. Click pic to go BIG. Pic by J.Cobbs

Jonas absolutely hates that nickname, but shit it actually applies this time so we’re rollin with it, lol sorry bud! This photo by Joey Cobbs was taken on the Volume California Trip at the same spot in the Bay area where Drew Hoss does the fakie crook on the pole. Unfortunately this clip of Jonas didn’t come out exactly how I wanted and got left on the cutting room floor so to speak….but hey there’s no reason the photo shouldn’t get some love! Ever shoe-ba-ca wizzard, Mike decided to go the more traditional route this time by using his front tire and this skinny little support rail.

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….

Day 3 started off picking up the other half of the crew at their hotel in Santa Maria. Raban pulled up in his swagon wagon with a lit fire cracker which he then threw out the window directly into Bahlman’s hoody. All I heard was Raban say “oh no!….” right before it exploded bloodying his neck and blowing a pretty sizable hole in his sweatshirt.

We started off day two at quite possibly the funnest “warm up” spot to ever exist, known as The Rec in the heart of Nipomo, CA. This ghetto ramp paradise provided us with a great team session and even a couple insane clips courtesy of Jonas, Tate, and Broc to start the day off right. Keep an eye out for a flipbook from this spot soon, and in the meantime check out the rest of our day below…
