Our man, Billy Perry, Anthony Panza and Jesse Romano see what clips they can do on the first try at a park in Long Island.
“I headed to Mastic Skatepark on Long Island for a chill session with Anthony Panza and we met up with fellow friend and bmx rider Jesse Romano. We ended up filming a good amount of clips first try which sparked the idea for this series.” – Billy
Each section to our ‘The Finer Things’ video is now officially online for your viewing pleasure. I can’t be any more proud of each of the guys in the video that busted their asses to make the video what it is, as well as Mike’s hard work on making his vision a reality. Give the complete video one (or 2) more watch above. Thanks again for all the love you guys gave the DVD too, we always appreciated the kind words on social media and etc. That’s what makes it worth while. The guys are already hard at work on their next project that should be dropping very soon. Stay tuned…
I can go on and on about how great the web is for getting media out there in an instant but in that same sentence how bad it is for the longevity of that same media piece. The other day Vital released THIS absolutely insane DeMarcus Paul video that could have been an ender part in a video and it already is lost somewhere amongst other blog posts. DeMarcus has been sitting on these clips for a bit for another project, and stoked it finally was released by someone. Give it a watch! Trust me, you won’t regret it. My man DeMarcus lays down some heavy bangers in this one. Photo by Kyle Carlson. more
Ladies and geltelmen, Demarcus Paul does it again. Hot on the heels of his The Finer Things section hitting the web, DeMarcus teamed up with Doeby and decided to bang you over the head with this video piece for Vital. The icepick control is real my friends. Play, enjoy, repeat, repeat.
Our new rider in Australia through BMX Militia distribution, Lewis Mills just dropped his welcome video, and we couldn’t be any more stoked to have Lewis reppin us. He threw down some heavy bangers for his video and can’t wait to see more… Watch now! Video by Chris Whyte
Today we proudly present the last (or in fact the first) rider section in our The Finer Things DVD online release, DeMarcus Paul. Never having a traditional welcome video, DeMarcus’ DVD section served as his official footy debut as a member of the Volume family. His incredibly gnarly trick selection combined with powerful smoothness & technical precision is sure to bang you over the head. Enjoy!
Today we proudly present Zach Krejmas’ part in The Finer Things DVD to the internet. During filming this part, Krejmas held down full time positions as Vital videographer to now full time RideBMX videographer. Ever the hard worker, Zach still managed to come on a few trips and stack the weekend clips little by little in order to come thru will a full section for the DVD. I’ve always been such a huge fan of Zach’s riding from his early days in Long Beach all the way till the present. The one thing that’s always fascinated me about Zach is his timeless ability to see all the potential the world in little everyday humps and bumps around town, which most people in Southern California wouldn’t even consider to be spots. A “setup rider” if you will, Zach is true testament to how limitless street riding really is, and how much of a picture you can really paint by just taking a deeper look at your surroundings. In short, Krejmas’ world begins at your doorstep. Enjoy!
Today we’re very proud to drop Josh & Eric’s split section from The Finer Things DVD. With riding styles that couldn’t really differ more from eachother (left foot forward/cassette, right foot forward/freecoaster wizard) we found it fitting for Josh & Eric to share a lengthy splitter to mix the video up a little bit. From Josh’s style and bike control to Eric’s back wheel ballerina wizardry, we know you’ll be impressed. This is also one of my personal favorite sections in the video and probably my favorite song as well. Enjoy!
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.
