JBall and his Suck My Cog label hosted one of the first FGFS comps in some time this past weekend. Faces new and old showed up to throw down at Silverado skatepark in Long Beach summer sun. Here’s a few recap flicks from the day…bummed I couldn’t swing this one!
A couple weeks back a mob of kids took to the streets of Oakland for Ed Wonka’s “Harness the Gnarness“. A handful of killer street spots dotted around Lake Merritt made for the perfect jam setup. I only grabbed some of the action so this is just a teaser of what’s headed to the Wheel Talk dudes for the real deal…more this week!
If you’ve been living under a rock you might not know that this weekend is Red Bull’s Ride + Style. For those trying to swoop a spot State’s Road to Red Bull might have been their only chance. An epic race down in AZ…this is only a preview of what is to come. This weekend is about to be wild!
Here’s another recap flick from the Uproar comp this past weekend. BHSK was there supporting with the media coverage and came back with this bit. For not being able to use the actual park out in Oakland this looks like a pretty decent setup. More on Bomb Hills.
Here’s the only video I’ve come across so far from Summer Fix this past weekend. Some spectator sideline type filming but some good stuff from the event in here regardless. Had a dope time at the event and will be upping stuff from the trip throughout the week.
1st: Valentin Racho
2nd: Steven Jensen 3rd: Elliott Milner
With extension like this Matt has some of the sickest looking suicides in the game. This baby box was nothing to write home about (nor was any of the other stuff to shred) but Spencer and some of the other dudes were blasting it a ok. Palm trees seem appropriate too.
It seemed as though Summer Fix had gone by the wayside until a couple weeks ago. After a pretty impressive push on Facebook it looks like there’s going to be a good group down in Venice Beach for the third incarnation of the event. I’ll be down there with Gnarlos riding and getting the hell out of Sacramento for a weekend. Interested to see how this BMX/FGFS comp goes down should be good. See yall this weekend.
Always up for another Ride + Style edit especially when it’s coming from the Still Pour dudes. Pretty sure they had the best trip to the event driving that behemoth of a van down from Portland. Dig me some road trip videos.
Here’s a little edit from their stop at Balboa too. So rad being on the road and stopping to hit shit along the wayyy.
Every major event of the year I looks forward to some coverage from Matt and the Wheel Talk crew. This year he teamed up with Zane and Omar Sebai to bring us probably the best video from the event. It’s got a bit of everything. Bail reel, a bit of track stuff and a super well edited collection of all the dudes throwing down. Dig the section type editing from the comp…made this look real pro. Good shit dudes!
