Filming for the next DVD is well underway tons of clips have been filmed and the guys are starting to stack clips towards gnarly parts. We’ve been super busy filming, and the downside to this is it’s hard to get the photos out that we’d like to, especially when it comes to stuff that only goes down once. Luckily, the talented Alec Crowell is back behind the lens and will be coming out with us to shoot photos for Business whenever he can. Thanks to Alec, we got this rad picture of Nick nailing a whip out over this railhop yesterday.
I also decided I’d post these couple pictures of harrison I’ve shot in the passed while and have been meaning to put up.
Keep an eye out for many more of Alecs photos, we’re getting out a lot and it shouldn’t be long before we have a dialled photo set to post on here.
Taylor Dacey and Chris Burke are organizing a big jam at the Halifax Commons Skatepark on Saturday, July 20th. Make sure to book the time off work, find a way into town, it will be a super worth while event to make it to. Taylor has been hard on his game and organized a big group of sponsors for prizes, and has been thinking up some wild contest format activities for the jam. It’s going to be a wild time. Also, Business BMX will be sponsoring the jam and you’ll be able to win some awesome shirts and there will be tons of DVD’s up for grabs, along with tons of purchasable merch.
Be sure to make it out to this event, you won’t want to miss it!
We always do our best to take part in the contests the guys over at The Northern Embassy put on. Lately, we’ve been crazy busy filming for the next Business DVD, but we had recently filmed a bunch of great night lit shots, and thought it would be an awesome theme for a five clips video for the embassys contest. So here it is, Business: The Back Shift. Don’t forget to check out and like our new Facebook page as well, and keep an eye out for photo set updates on filming I the near future!

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.
