With the year coming to a close, I just wanted to take a second to take a step back and honor some of the amazing work that’s come out this year. I compiled a quick top ten of some of the videos that stood out to me and were truly memorable. Really looking forward to seeing what the coming decade has in store. Have fun, watch these, then go ride jah bike. ✌️
Jackson Bradshaw was in town a couple weeks ago to film for the full length F.O.A.D video entitled “The Good Times Are Killing Me”. They’ve been working on this video for quite some time now and they’re ramping up to premiere it on October 8th in Salt Lake City. If you live anywhere near SLC and ride FGFS then I suggest you mark your calendar and support the scene. Here are a few medium format photos of Jackson during the first day we met up to ride. Check out the ghostly 2’s the top image picked up during the scanning process. Shooting film never ceases to surprise me.
Despite all the shit there is to do in Las Vegas, I had the best time hanging out and riding with these dudes one afternoon. I didn’t come equipped with a bike of my own, so Evan Service saved the day by letting me shred on his. After figuring out rides, we hopped in a car and traveled off the strip to this lonesome manual pad where we rode until the sun went down. It was impressive to see first hand all of the skid tricks Matt Spencer has up his sleeve, Elliott Milner’s nose manual control & Jackson Bradshaw’s creative genius. I rarely get to ride with these guys so it’s always a pleasure when I do. Ian Walker perhaps being the only exception to this because he lived in the Bay Area up until just recently. That being said, I’m looking forward to meeting up and riding with them in AZ sometime in the near future. Check out more photos below
Today I did some digging though our archives and came across this post that was put together but never published. I figured there’s no time like the present, and that we better get this out there before we enter into the new year. A while back Jeff Dempler made it down to Venice Beach, in Southern California for the 2013 Summer Fix. He spent most of his time behind the camera capturing most of the madness that went down that weekend. Jakob Santos blew everyone away with the huge wallrides he was blasting out of the quarter pipe against the handball court. Elliott Milner destroyed the flat rail, Joe Mckeag clicked some dialed tabletops, and our dude Valentin Racho threw barspins over just about every obstacle there.
