We had some fun with this one. Whenever John Cardiel comes to town you know good times are close behind and with the recent return of the Chrome Van we rolled around in PDX in style. (It’s great having a mobile headquarters). John has always been a ripper on a bike, and it was awesome to shoot him jumping around on both the orange bikes in town and his Santa Cruz Mountain Bike. The transition of which was really funny to film and see come together. Shout out to Hombre McSteez for all the animation additions, it adds a ton of vibes and was also really funny to film. Check out the new Darkwood Camo Cardiel bags from Chrome Industries and skim through more photos below.
It’s hard to believe that this is the camera that we used to film the first Wheel Talk videos. Video cameras sure have come a long way since this. The one redeeming factor of this camera is how small and portable it is. Not to mention the fact that it’s nearly impossible to make video look this shitty anymore.
Anyways, here’s an assortment of pocket clips using the flip cam from the last time I was back home in SF. It always feels good to be back among a sea of familiar faces and visit places with a whole different sense of awareness and appreciation. Hits me right in the feels. Everytime. There’s some clips of John Cardiel sandwhiched in the middle of this from when we were filming the Chrome X Antihero video. Some of my favorite footage in this is of everybody at the MASH STORE just hanging out. It’s such a hub for the community that it’s pretty much a guarantee that some of your friends are already there. Loitering mostly, but playing our part and getting to know eachother better one day at a time. Thanks Mike.
