Over the passed few months on instagram, we’ve been uploading a clip for each rider who’s shaping up a full section for our next DVD (out in 2015).

This isn’t exactly a trailer, more of a compilation of these instagram clips; left over clips from the crazy amount of footage we’ve been stacking towards the film (plus some extra shots and crashes). We wanted to put out a web video to let you guys know we’ve been working on something awesome since 2012.

So this random,

Kyle and I are hanging out at the park on a Wednesday, Kyle gets a call, hangs up the phone and says we’re going to America. Mark was super awesome and hooked us both up with cheap rides down to NH to ride Rye Airfield skatepark for a couple days, we were stoked to get to actually ride a bit.

Here are a few photos I shot of the crew, and a few others of some of the dope locals down there.

Another awesome session at Chris Burkes ramp The Arena. Kyle was throwing down so decided to shoot some photos and he ended up throwing and landing his first opposite flair. Crazy session.

Also, if you haven’t already, go give us a follow on instagram @businessbmx. We’ve been uploading some pretty crazy teaser clips from some of the full section riders in the next DVD.

December storms have pushed us to ride at ramps and under bridges, classic Nova Scotia and it’s horrible weather. Still out there though. Here’s a few from The Arena, Chris Burkes awesome tented in ramp, and a couple more from Halifax flatland killer Keith Harrison shredding under a bridge over his lunch break. 

We’ve got a couple videos dropping in the next couple weeks as well so keep your eyes peel for those.

So the Maritime winter has officially set in. Snowstorm at least once a week, freezing weather, obviously can’t be out riding street on our bikes

Instead, what Kyle decided to do was the old BMX-GT trick, cutting up a bike welding the parts to a GT snow racer and slapping BMX bars on it.

We went out tonight and put it to work… ended up barspinning and tailwhipping off a 10-12 foot tall container into this little bank. Not exactly BMX, but keeping that riding feeling alive through the winter.

Maybe we’re onto something?

A few flicks from last weekend. A couple chilly day trips ending with some snow… So Adam brought us to an abandoned warehouse he knew of. Marc got a couple awesome clips in there and a couple nice pictures too, as well as this rail hop by Nick. Still pushing through the cold weather stacking those clips.

Filming’s been going strong into the deep fall, getting warmed up is a little harder but everyone’s still going hard and killing it. Photo chances have been slimming because of the rush to clip up, racing the daylight, but this passed week I made a point to get the photos to post a little update.

Stayed tuned as well as we’re looking into possibly getting some toques made, also, if you haven’t got a copy of the first Business DVD hit me up on Facebook (Ian Fleming, or the Business BMX page) or by email (ian.fleming@dal.ca) and I’ll hook you up for a toonie or free if you buy a shirt, because we’d like to get the last of these out there. 

Stay tuned.

Filming has been crazy busy and crazy good lately. We just went up to Antigonish to film at St. FX University and around the town, and to visit an old family friend at his amazing house in the middle of no where. Super relaxing weekend, and the clips came out banging at the same time. Everyone killed it, especially Zach Williams, coming out of the trip with a ton of gnarly clips on some awesome setups at that school.

We also met up with some awesome locals that know the town inside and out, who showed us some pretty perfect spots, and taught us how to climb the roofs of the downtown area, useful. Here’s a couple shots from the trip including a couple of Allan, one of the local kids, that I managed to snap in between filming. Awesome time.

Also, be sure to follow @businessbmx on instagram! We just got the account started and will be posting tons of BMX stuff as much as we can.
