Harrison and I managed to clock enough clips this year to throw together a little split video. All street, short and sweet. Harrison does a couple really crazy things here so make sure not to miss it.
Halifax Winters are a sad time for riding kids bikes. Even when we get snow, it immediately turns to slush from rain the day after, then freezes over the next day.
Yesterday, instead of freezing over, we got some random positive 7 degree weather. We headed out pretty much all day riding the park while we could. I tried out shooting on my flash that I recently purchased (still learning how to use it), and we ended up getting some nice photos.
In other news, our friend’s got some new die cut stickers in the oven for us at the moment, and we’re working on some T-Shirt designs that we plan on dropping in the near future. Keep an eye out for all that and make sure to get some die cut stickers from us to slap on your frame!
Just spent a couple days in New York seeing some sights and riding my bike. I rolled along the Manhattan waterfront, met a couple skaters and followed them to LES skatepark where I was to stoked to find New York Street Riding legends Nigel Sylvester, Ralphy Ramos, and Desmond “Blackman” Rhodes.
Blackman immediately shook my hand and I got to meet the whole crew. It’s moments like this that remind me why I love this sport. A little unknown Canadian like me, greeted by arguably the best street riders in the world.
After riding the park for a bit, Ralphy led me two blocks over to Tyrone Williams’ bike shop; “Dah Shop”. Sitting outside having a smoke with none other than the father of modern street riding himself. Edwin Delarosa.
He introduced himself immediately and we lit up smokes together. Ralphy regaled the crew on the antics of a night at the club and I talked film photography with AMPM founder and film maker Joey Piazza. Joey and I traded DVDS and I hooked Edwin and Ralphy up with copies for their kindness.
We talked about the growing Halifax BMX scene and maybe after seeing Business they will be up to ride with us some day.
Matt has been in NS pretty much all summer building the trails dubbed “Sanctuary of Fun”, or SOF. He put in a ton of work there building, shooting, and filming, then came to the city to spend the last few days being a party master and riding street.
We managed to get a handful of awesome clips in the few days we got out in between showers, and here’s the end result. Enjoy!
Here’s a quick flick I took earlier this week of Harrison with a slant ride behind a pipe. Getting colder but were still suitin up and hitting the streets, getting last minute clips. Look for a wrap up video later in the season.
Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
Took a weekend “business” trip to the big city a few weeks ago to visit my good buds Terrill and Kerry (check out their Toronto part in the Business DVD). Here’s a few pictures from my travels.
Our good friends Nick and Brad headed out to a barge in Italy for work. They’re commercial divers and they’re working on a project to get the Costa Concordia shipwreck out of the bay. This was there last session out before they left and we had a good time, so made a little video.
Riders in order of appearance:
We miss you guys, have an awesome time working and see you soon.
Quick photo post. Been a fun couple of weeks, trying to enjoy the last bit of bearable weather. Lot’s of awesome clips have been filmed and it’s looking like we’ll be able to put together a real good end of the year video.
Went on a nice skatepark / rail mission up Nova Scotia, so a few flics from that day, along with Ryan who’s been injured all year banging out a gnarly turndown off a slanted wallride over a fence. Savage.
I’ve been really busy lately, but we had filmed a quick dirt/park video that I’m trying to get out ASAP, so hold tight.
Just a two quick flicks I’ve shot over the past couple very busy weeks. A lot going on right now so keep an eye out!
Ryan and Steve are probably the two craziest park riders I know. Here’s Ryan learning crazy things with a heel injury and Steve being a psycho and jumping Patrick off a kinked lip on top of a bank. Nuts.
Video stuff coming in the next couple of weeks so watch out!
