Huge thanks to everyone that came out last night to watch The Finer Things video at the Lido. Definitely surreal to see if finished and on the big screen. The guys have been busting their asses off for the last 2.5 years and glad to finally have their hard work all wrapped up and in a damn fine DVD that Mike Mastroni pieced together. This photo above says it all.
The video and tees will be shipping out today and will also be available on our shop. Jeff Z from RIDEbmx, and Kyle Carlson from VITAL bmx were also in a attendance at the premiere last night and somehow managed to get up these (RIDE’s / VITAL’s) rad galleries up in the middle of the night after partying hard with all the guys.
“Volume‘s first premiere for their new video The Finer Things went down tonight in Newport Beach, California at the Lido Live theater for a packed crowd of riders, included top pros, industry heads, and plenty of local riders. There has been a lot of publicity leading up to this video, and it’s been well deserved—The Finer Things delivers on all fronts with incredible riding from start to finish, top notch filming and editing, and not your typical, but well suited soundtrack. I already heard a few murmurs of “NORA Cup” and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Huge congrats to Volume, the whole team, and Mike Mastroni for putting together an incredible video. Whatever you do don’t slack on snagging yourself a copy—you’ll be glad you did!” —Z.

Another rad photo taken from The Finer Things poster (on sale for 1 penny on our shop), this time with Drew going up and down the rainbow rail. Couldn’t be anymore stoked on Drew’s section in The Finer Things DVD and know you will be too. Photo by J.Cobbs.

The other day we dropped the backside of our poster with all our new 2015 parts and frame line, and today we’re showing off the front with all of our guys that will have full length parts in The Finer Things DVD that will hopefully be up on your wall soon. Get at the poster here on our shop page (it’s only $.01!!!). Keep your eyes peeled for individual online wallpapers of each shot and a lil writeup about em soon.

On the last day of 2014 Castillo and I decided to go out and film some stuff on his old stomping grounds and I took some photos throughout the day for this whole internet instant gratification machine we all use to occupy our days. If there’s one thing I to be learned about Brian here, it’s that he really really likes brick bank spots. Where could this footage possibly end up? Who knows…CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY.

Ride just posted BMX photography god Jeff Z’s top 10 photos of 2014, and wouldn’t ya know it, us Volume guys scored 3 out of the 10 with Jason, Raban, and Myself all included. Thanks Jeff, it’s an honor! Hit the link for the rest, here’s Jason with quite possibly the best X-up version of himself (Canadian) ever captured.

We did a fair amount of wallpapers of our guys this year and wanted to show off our favorites. We did have a bunch of others HERE but compiled the best 8 for this animated gif. Enjoy and happy holidays!

Been pretty hyped on using a real camera that isn’t an iPhone and taking some blog photos. So, here’s a first hand look at what a typical Saturday out filming with us is like. We cut down a tree limb to mount a camera, made a lot of people cry on Instagram, filmed an amazing Platt clip, went on a few wild goose chases for potential spots, and ended up finding DeMarcus’ secret candy stash in a high school trash can. All in a days work right? CLICK IMAGE TO EXPAND GALLERY.

Our good friend Devin Feil just updated his photo site with some more recent 2014 BMX work including the above shots of Raban and myself. Raban’s we used for a recent Bermuda V2 ad. Check out more here.

I am now relaxing out East in my hometown of Kent, Connecticut after spending an awesome week in my other home away from home (Salt Lake City) with creative genius Mr. Roskelley and of course our good friend Elf. We studied some new spots, got creative, got some clips, drank some beers…you know, like what you do on a trip. CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY. Shoutout to Riley Smith for the photos.

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

Jeff Z is always updating his photo site with new pics from his archives. He just added a couple dope ones of Mastroni and Drew. This one above of Mike was in a couple issues back of RIDEbmx doing a ledge ride to hop w/ steez through the tree. All while Devin Feil looks on from above in the UC San Diego banner. Check out the rest HERE >

You can tell we hate keeping our photo shoots and completes a secret with all the behind the scenes pics we’ve been putting up lately. While we were shooting for our new complete bike catalog, we had some leftover Enns/ Hessian bike pics from the shoot. If this doesn’t scream Hessian, I don’t know what does! Can’t wait for you guys to see the good, real pics. Click pic to go BIG!
