  • PIG RODEO Featuring David Graf


    This is easily one of the raddest things I’ve seen in a while. David Graf is known as a BMX professional, but don’t think for a second that his bike control is limited to a 20″ wheel. Here’s David ripping a NICOLAI Argon Fat Bike, the complete opposite of what’s normally under him. Who said pigs can’t fly? Fat bikes are the funnest.

  • I Was A Skate Rat – Drew Miller


    It’s not everyday that a 4-minute clip leaves such an impact on me. Really. With our dwindling attention span and constant search for instant gratification, it’s hard to filter the noise and let something to speak to you.

    I’ve been a skateboarder for 17ish years now. I’ve had many skate friends come and go; sheesh, I even gave it up for 4 years during high school since most of my friends had stopped skating. I never regretted this decision (not too much) because it allowed me to race bicycles full time – another part of me I can’t let go of and never will.

    The reason I even made it to China was thanks to skateboarding. I met some of the most pivotal people in my life through mutual love for a wooden plank with urethane wheels. Seriously. I’ve traveled alone, only to come home with new friends in new places…again, thanks to skateboarding. I’ve had some of the best times out here in China with friends I can barely communicate with, all because we share a love for something bigger than all of us. I don’t mean to nerd out like this, but this short film by Drew Miller really moved me and helped me to realize how fortunate I am to have taken this path in life.

    To me, this short is more about who skateboarders are and not what they do. Skateboarders are accepting. It doesn’t matter what you look like or how you skate…it’s about the love. It’s about knowing you can go to any city and easily connect with others, even if you can’t speak the language. It’s something not many people understand or ever will. Thanks to Drew Miller for helping tell the story countless people share around the world.

  • best ever commercial


    Kyle Burroughs, another good homie from Vermont, has been working on a new project showcasing the skate scene back home titled Best Ever.

    Magenta Skateboards never disappoints. Just like the TCB and MASH guys get my hyped to ride, the Magenta videos always make me want to skate. Luckily, that’s exactly what I’m about to go do.

  • TCB Courier Celebrates 5 Years by MASH SF


    The guys at TCB Courier just celebrated 5 years of business in San Francisco and MASH SF made this rippin’ video to celebrate. Watching this made me that much more excited to rip my track bike around today. Congrats on the 5 years guys!

  • Best Ever Trailer – Vermont Skateboarding Video by Kyle Burroughs


    Ah man, seeing this makes me miss Vermont even more. Seriously. Kyle Burroughs – one of my good homies and a crazy talented skateboarder, is working on a full-length skate video titled “Best Ever”. It’s featuring a bunch of my buddies from back in Burlington and is set to come out at the end of October. I cannot wait to see the full video and pick up a copy for myself when I’m back home visiting. Who knows, I might even have a trick or two in it!

    Check back for more in “Best Ever” and some info on where you can pickup merch. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer and check out some more skateboarding related posts while you’re at it.

  • Meet The 2014 Blackburn Rangers


    Man, this video from Blackburn has me thinking about moving back to the states and riding the Pacific Coast Highway or the Great Divide. Don’t get me wrong, Shanghai is awesome, but as I type this I’m experiencing a lingering cough that has been bothering me all morning and all of last night. The cough isn’t because I’m sick, it’s because I’m inhaling too much pollution. My coworkers in the office tell me not to worry and that it’s normal, but to me there’s nothing “normal” about it; especially moving to Shanghai from Vermont.

    Anyway, this post is about the latest Blackburn Ranger lineup for their “Out There” program which embodies the culture of adventure and give cyclists an opportunity to embark on crazy journeys along the Pacific Coast and the Great Divide. Check out the lineup of this year’s Rangers below and be sure to give this video a watch!

  • Cornfed & The HEAVYPEDAL Zephyr Track Bike


    If you couldn’t already tell, I’m on a bit of a track bike tear…especially since setting up my F550. This is a killer video featuring Jacob Shope and Scott Harris putting the HEAVYPEDAL Zephyr track bike in straight up shred mode. CORNFED!

  • DONTDO – Evan Murphy & Stanridge Speed Bicycles Part 1


    This is rad. Evan Murphy is fast. Stanridge Speed Bicycles are the truth.

    DONTDO met up with Evan Murphy in Red Hook to pick his mind on riding in Brooklyn, racing track bikes on the street and riding in the Red Hook Crit. This video is not one to miss!

  • Hemetic Trading Co. – Kickstarter | Made in USA Backpacks & More


    Some of my friends from back in Burlington have a great thing going on. As you probably know, I’m a big proponent for American-made goods; even more so when my friends are involved. Hemetic Trading Company is doing it right.

    It’s well known that there are tons of brands out there pushing out products taking classic design cues from popular American brands, that catch is that they’re often adorned with a “made in China” tag. Hell, I’m more aware of it now more than ever after moving to China 3 months ago. You can literally buy a knockoff of anything you want here, and the quality is terrible. Even worse, many of these imitations are stitch-by-stich ripping off products that took blood, sweat, tears and countless passionate hours to create.

    So if you’re like me and want to support quality, honest and original products, do me a favor and help my buddies at Hemetic out over at their Kickstarter. They’re putting up some pretty amazing gifts for your support.

    To show them love, head over to the Hemetic Trading Co. Kickstarter and give what you can! Keep up the amazing work guys!
