Last month when Billy was out in SoCal to work on some “new projects” and visit family, I got a chance to finally shoot some photos of Billy too. This is a spot that Mastroni had in his back pocket for a bit and took Billy and myself there for a nighttime shoot. The champ that Billy is, he laced this rail ride to bars within minutes of getting there, amongst other things… Click image to go BIG.

Jeff Z just put up his Top 10 photos of 2015 and our guys, Broc Raiford, Drew Hosselton, and Bill Perry (pictured) all are featured in the feature. All the photos are picture perfect and were in RIDEbmx print mag. Now that’s saying something…
“In terms of coverage, this spot went from zero to 60 in record time. And the resulting trick list is pretty insane. In an effort to shoot the spot from a new/unseen perspective I walked outside the gate and after a little snooping around I came up with this angle. I can’t remember if it was my car or Mike Mastroni’s van that I was standing on to get close enough to the barbed wire, but I know that I just barely got everything setup in time to capture the peak golden hour light before the sun went down behind the buildings behind us. I never like to say never, but I’m fairly confident that I will never shoot a better photo at this spot.” – Z

The other day when Bill was in town, I took the guys to a few of my local spots and at one, Biz called out this cool barspin thread the needle for Billy to do. Billy obliged to get in on it and was able to get a long and fisheye view for you to get a better idea of the spot and photo itself. And yes, I suck at shooting barspins, my old ass is always either too early or too late, so thank you Billy for doing it multiple times for me. Enjoy!

Tomorrow is a big day for our man Broc Raiford and us. Broc’s 2015 Signature Series parts video is going to drop online that him and Mastroni have been working on for a bit. He’s stacked some heavy… heavy bangers that will make you watch again and again. I’ve already watched it a few times and can’t believe what I saw… Stay tuned tomorrow. Photo by J.Cobbs is of Broc getting a crank flip over a rail from bank to bank shot while filming for the video.

Always loved seeing photos from east coast riders that throw down a good session using what’s around them and especially ones off metal grates in the city that were propped up. Josh and fellow 180 Dist sales representative, Sean Sieling threw down some moves while in SD and used a grate to its full potential. Photo by J.Cobbs. Click image to go BIG!

Leave it to DeMarcus to always come through with some heavy bangers, and while on the Oregon trip a few months back he banged out this uprail to 180 bars. I’m sure you’ll be seeing this and many more moves from Deemo in our Volume Chapters series dropping very soon. You can get this poster with all our new parts on the back for 1 cent on our online shop here>> Photo by Devin Feil.

Just another day with DeMarcus now that he’s working on multiple video projects and is now considered one of the hardest working dudes out there. He’s nonstop and can’t wait to see what he has coming out later this year. Mastroni has a couple things already in the works with him… Up-rail to whip photo by J.Cobbs.

Hot damn! This just went up this afternoon from RIDEbmx with our own Broc Raiford scoring the latest RIDE cover with this huge gap in the LBC. Also featured in the same issue is Broc’s interview and one with DeMarcus Paul. Don’t wanna miss this one! Photo by Jeff Z.

If you’re anything like me, I’m always intrigued to see anything of Tate and his riding style. Plus it takes me awhile to comprehend what the hell is going on. Matthew Windsor just sent me this photo of Tate jumping on a not so sturdy setup to over a barrier. I had to look twice and see how he comes up with the thought process to not only think up this but also have the balls to follow through. This one could have gone way wrong…

For all those that have been living under a rock and haven’t seen our ‘The Finer Things’ DVD, you also missed out on Broc Raifords epic ending part. Ending parts usually have a hammer ender and we just spoiled it by putting it on a poster. What may look like the weirdest rail to big 3 is actually a lot crazier than it looks in this photo. Crank arm grinds to gap bars don’t get any gnarlier than this! Swoop up a poster today for a penny HERE >> Photo by Devin Feil

One would think that a guy as creative as Tate does a ton of drugs all day long, how else could he come up with so many tricks outside of the norm? Other than his usual dose of fruits/ vegetables, gym workouts, and the occasional Utah’s finest herb hit, there’s not much else to say how he comes up with what he does. Speed, slide, duck and a prayer that he didn’t hit his head on the door all went into this photo. For this photo and more, hit up the shop to buy one for a whopping 1 penny!
