  • Shanghai Files 1


    Shanghai has been quite the trip so far. I’ve been living here for a month already and have been SO BUSY with work. For those who don’t know, myself and my two business partners run a skate shop here in Shanghai and also work with a number of schools doing after-school skateboarding programs; so things have been hectic, but very fun.

    We spent a couple nights filming after work and came up with this edit, Shanghai Files 1 – featuring John Sawchak, Brian Kleiber and Kevin Nevado. Keep an eye out for #2 coming soon, featuring more spots, homies and hijinx.

  • The Trophy Club: “Summer Champ” Bike Touring Short


    This is what I’m talking about! Even though my bike touring experience is limited, it’s something that’s always drawn me in with the unpredictability of such a journey. Watch here as The Trophy Club completes a 1,300 mile bike tour full of climbing mountains, meeting new people, camping, swimming in rivers and getting lost along the way; all for fun.

    Give this short by The Sleepers a watch! It sure gets me hyped for summer.

  • Beast Coasters: Bicycle Nightcycle at Talent Skatepark & Shop


    It’s nice to see some BMX footage coming from Talent Skatepark. I probably spend at least 3 nights a week at this place during the winter months, but never Mondays; that’s bike night. The Beast Coasters grabbed a couple clips a few weeks back on a Monday night, so don’t miss this quickie! Nice alley-oop in the second clip by my buddy JP Agorrea.

  • Seimi Miyahara’s part from TIGHTBOOTH PRODUCTION’s LENZII


    If you’ve been keeping up with some of the skateboarding posts here, you’ll know there’s a certain aesthetic that really speaks to me. Seimi Miyahara’s part in TIGHTBOOTH PRODUCTION‘S LENZII is pretty amazing; and damn, does he have some quick feet. If you think the lipslide ollie was nuts then just wait for the last trick.

  • Ability Bikes Cooperative – Koforidua, Ghana Mini Documentary

    My good friend Derek McIntire shot this mini documentary on Ability Bikes, a worker-owned cooperative in Koforidua, Ghana which is run by physically challenged people. Derek shot this while  visiting Koforidua back in November 2013 while teaching a mechanics workshop. With rising fuel prices in Ghana and the increased need for affordable transportation, many are turning to bicycles to help save money and stay mobile. Great job on this, Derek!

  • Chrome Industries: Massan Barrage Cargo Video


    Remember how hyped I was about the Massan video that dropped last Friday on the Chrome Industries site? Well, now you can watch it over and over and over again; right here. Sure, it was put together to promote the Barrage Cargo backpack that I recently reviewed (which, of course, I’ve still been using day-to-day and love), but the cinematography here is absolutely incredible. It also goes without saying: the riding is nuts! Massan is a king on the track bike and bombs Burnside 40+ mph with ease. Enjoy.
