Today we proudly present Tate Roskelley’s mind blowingly creative & original The Finer Things DVD section to you, the internet world. Tate is hands down one of the most incredible bike riders, free thinkers, and a true artist practicing his unique brand of organic and forever-experimental BMX. We love Tate & we love this video section….so if this is your first time seeing this, we really hope you do too! Enjoy!
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!
For everyone out there who’s excited for our upcoming DVD The Finer Things, this is just about as up close and personal you’re going to get until it drops. In this behind the scenes look at the filming process you’ll get quick glimpse of what Tate’s section will be like, as well as hear how he approaches filming for the project. Stay tuned for more of these in the coming weeks! Video by Zach Krejmas. RideBMX.
We got the chance to sit down with Tate a couple weeks ago when he came to SoCal to finish up his Finer Things part and shoot some photos. He talks about his process of finding spots, what goes into his tricks, and much more. Check it out, and see what goes on behind the scenes of a Tate Roskelley video part. more
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.
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.
Currently not exactly this, but probably something just like it…only separate and in the future. I’ve made the trek out to Salt Lake once again to film with the one and only Tate Roskelley for his upcoming section in The Finer Things. Keep an eye out for some updates from our time out here, which may be including but limited to: photos of Tate looking at spots, photos of Elf, Faygo, water features, goat-head thorns, tandem bikes, etc…really just wherever the day takes us. Stay tuned for all of that & for now enjoy our split section from OSS’s “Ruin Your Whole Summer” which Tate hates.
I’ve been out in Utah’s finest city with creative genius Tate Roskelley for the past few days sweating our asses off & chipping away at his upcoming section in The Finer Things. I’m always amazed at the concepts Tate comes up with and this trip so far has certainly had me on my toes (literally running away from flying bikes and debris) trying to find the best angles for his madness. Here we are scoping another one. Shout out to Matt Windsor for the photo.
How sick is this photo right? Greg Moliterno shot this gem with Tate on a team trip to Phoenix earlier this year, and now you get to enjoy it as your latest desktop background! Tate actually didn’t really end up too hyped on the way the clip looked so you might not be seeing that in his DVD part…however at the end of the day he definitely still slid sideways thru this narrow little space.
