Thanks to Jeff Z and the dudes at Ride, plus photographers Joey Cobbs and Greg Moliterno, we have a lengthy article in the newest November 2014 issue all about our upcoming DVD The Finer Things. Everyone involved here is quite the individual, so I wrote a bunch about what it’s like filming with each person, and of course answered some questions about the overall project itself. For all you kids out there who have never looked at a BMX magazine, you are missing out on some of the most quality BMX content in existence and are pretty much royally blowing it for the future of all BMX mankind. Just like a DVD itself, you can HOLD a magazine in your hand…what crazy concept right?? Don’t be a kook, pick one up or SUBSCRIBE today!

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.

Attention: Shameless self posting. For all you die hard Volume site readers out there who may have noticed I haven’t been in the mix as much lately, it’s because I’ve been out and about working really hard to wrap up my own section in The Finer Things. Having spent the last couple years very much dedicated to finding spots and filming everyone else, I’ve been taking this time to focus more on my own section, make my ideas a reality, and make it as good as can be. I’ve been told before I have a one track mind and am totally incapable of multi-tasking….for the most part this is absolutely true. Our friend Devin Feil shot this in the midst of getting one of my bucket list ideas done the other day right here in Long Beach with our very own Josh Clemens behind the lens. – Mike Mastroni

Here’s an awesome Behind The Scenes shot by Greg Moliterno of Drew Hoss and I filming for his upcoming section in The Finer Things on a recent Phoenix trip. You may remember seeing the long lens angle of this in the trailer…here we are twerkin’ it while the rest of the crew tries not to slip and fall on any heroin needles…. more

With Mr Cobbs finally arriving to the party I’ll finally have some proper photos to show ya. Since it rained all day on Sunday, yesterday (Tuesday) can count as official day 3. I actually didn’t even think about this when planning this trip, but as an added bonus school is out for the summer….which means 1000 more spots to ride during our stay here. So, yesterday we did exactly that with Platt, J Clem, and Broc all getting some serious hammers in the bag at this first spot. From there we rode a few other schools, the best flat rails in the world, and capped it off with Drew grinding his way out of the closet right before picking up Enns & Krejmas at the airport… CLICK IMAGE TO LAUNCH GALLERY!
