With his ties in skateboarding and cycling John is always globetrotting the world to some of the most rad places. He skipped over to the Chrome Tokyo hub a couple months back to spin records at their grand opening before taking to the streets. VHS Mag caught up with him for a quick spot on riding in Tokyo, music and what he’s got coming down the pipe…
When en route to Yosemite from just about anywhere, it’s safe to say hitting the tree line is a special moment. After miles and miles of open road the smell of fresh pine hints that you’re well on your way. The trees still stood as a reminder that there was plenty of climbing ahead, though we were well ready for the hustle. These few were some of my favorites from our ascent into the hills and through the trees on the Official Park Ragers trip!
Finally had the chance to pick through the Yosemite trip photos from back in May. Here’s one of John coming up to the top of the most brutal climb of the trip at Old Priest Grade. Planning a series from the three day trip so stay tuned!
Stoked on adding this bad boy to my collection today. Had a few to catch up with my dude John and was stoked he saved me one of his Spoking Fun patches. Definitely one of my favorites and long gone as most of Todd’s patches but you can keep up with his new releases (and there’s some sick ones coming) over here!
I’m digging this Streets of Chrome page on Youtube lately. They’ve been dropping some cool media on there and now this Familia piece with all the Chrome sponsored dudes riding NYC. Cards with a cool concept linking the dudes together in this. Ed‘s got a bit 3 in there that is still sick even though this is from a year agooo. Good stuff.
I’m not sure how this got missed but I dont see it in any of my searches. A rewatch isn’t a problem either ha. When its these dudes going in on a video together you know its going to be good. John lives to ride and these bags are clutch. I gave em a go and they were sickkk. Peep the good vibes and a solid end to the three day weekend.
Beyond stoked for this collabo! I remember John mentioning this quite some time ago and how much work he was putting in on this. Cards has been repping the Chrome fam for some time now so it only makes sense that he have some super practical travel baggage come out for you to hit the streets with. Loving the different sizes and utility of the series! He also mentioned these little promo videos that would be coming out and below is the first of this cool series. The editing toally has a skate video feel to it…reminded me of Photosynthesis! Lastly, hit the launch party on March 24th where you know I’ll be trying to be! Free tacos and beer? Plenty of swag from Chrome? Duh!
