Today we’re very proud to present one of LA’s finest, and perhaps the smoothest street rider on the face of the earth, Daniel Martinez. D’s section is the perfect combination of big & scary, with a smooth & steezy execution every time making it look so damn good. Watch this now and pick yourself up a copy of The Finer Things HERE.
When not filming for our upcoming video project, we’ve been out stacking some fun night clips for a VLM Stem promo. Filming at night is usually added pressure on the rider, so it’s been nice to have a little more fun with it and light up some things we may have otherwise overlooked. Here’s Josh and D pushing thru impending skate-stopper doom & cockroach infestations the past couple nights. Video coming soon, Click to expand gallery.
While almost every other profession would consider this drinking on the job, we as professional BMX riders have earned the right to enjoy the finer things (bottles of sake from across the shitty Liquor store across street) in life. Here’s to D getting an NB-lil-D under his belt the other day. Click to expand gallery.
Yesterday was a great LA Sunday out with J-Clem and Lil D who are currently starting in on their sections for our next video project. We got rode some spots, drank some coffees, met up with some friends, ate some slices, and got some great clips. What more could you ask for really? CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY.
If you follow along with us on Instagram you may have noticed we’ve been posting little 15 second 2-3 clips videos of some extras from The Finer Things. If you haven’t, the good news is that we’re posting them on our YouTube channel as well. Here’s the first round of extras from DeMarcus. You can check out Bahlman, Raban, and D right here too, which are in a handy little playlist for your viewing convenience. We’ll be posting one one of these a day till I’m out of extra footy. Buy the video HERE.
Daniel Martiniez footage always gets me stoked to ride, due to his smooth style and making crazy shit look easy. This quick new edit of D is just that, take a look.
“ShorT & SweeT – can be a quick video from one person,a group of people or just background funny shit that happens when im out with people. I will be dropping some more ShorT & SweeT videos throughout the year featuring alot of different riders!”
Here’s a good TBT for you featuring this dope photo of D that never found a home. This was shot way back in November of 2012 up in San Jose on the Volume In California trip. Right after D and Bahlman filmed some shit on this grate, Tate practically fell thru it trying to footplant bar in….at which point we just gave up and continued down the ditch. Photo by Joey Cobbs.
Lil D and his right hand man Jeff Cadger hanging out at a lil ledge in LA. Lil Cadger had a lil knee surgery so it’s gonna be a lil while before he can ride his lil bike again, so he called out all the moves for Lil D instead. Lil D has since grown a lil facial hair and lost a lil weight since he’s got a lil metal in his grill and can only eat a lil amount of food….haha I could go on for days! Here’s your classic D shit…making everything look buttery smooth.
This past weekend Broc and Myself headed down to San Diego to chill with Ronnie Nap & Jonas. We rode some bikes, filmed some clips, play ping pong, drank some beers, and had a good time of course… more
Lil D and filmer John Hicks really went in for this edit. Featuring lots of LA schoolyards and ballsy one hitters alike, and of course D’s seemingly flawless clean riding style throughout. It seems like every time I see D ride he’s just that much more dialed and aesthetically pleasing on his bike. Personal favorite clip in here was the un-luce to manual 180…or perhaps the little kid and his parents looking on as D shoots the bars thru that water fountain haha. Shoutout to The Come Up.
