Ground Recon: Independent BMX Shop

Independent BMX Front

We’re back with another Ground Recon Shop Spotlight. This time we’re hitting up our man Jairo who owns and operates Independent BMX Shop in sunny Los Angeles, CA. Independent BMX is a perfect example of local guys taking their passion and turning it into something positive for the community. While they work on, sell, and repair different types of bicycles, their main focus is BMX. The shop was started as a BMX shop and focuses on that passion everyday. While most bike shops have windows plastered with gajillion dollar road or mountain bike company locals, they chose to cover theirs with a locally based BMX company if that tells you anything. So click more and check out the story behind Independent BMX Shop…

Aboy and Doyle Update

Our Demo week has wrapped up at Woodward West and two of our favorite Demolition shredders weren’t able to make it to camp for all the fun. This time of year is always crazy for PRO riders so we hit up Aboy and Doyle to see what they’ve been getting into the last few weeks.

“What’s up guys? Doyle and I are currently on a Kink trip in Pittsburgh. We have been staying at his house and riding his local spots all week. Both of us were bummed we couldn’t make it out to Woodward west with the rest of the crew but we will be out there soon. Photos are from Boyce park shot by Tony Hamlin.” — Aboy

Demolition Woodward Week Day 4 and 5

Our last two days at Woodward West have come and gone and we had a blast to say the least! We goofed around all over camp on Thursday with some archery in the morning and bowling in the afternoon while shooting for our new T shirt ID which should be released soon. BIZ thinks he owns both bowling and archery but no matter what he tells ya he’s no Robin Hood or Jeffery Lebowski, he just happened to win $5 in a lucky bowling game… In the midst of all that we had a rad morning trails session followed by an even more insane evening trails session with little sessions all over camp fit in between.

Friday started out awesome with a crazy couple games of foot down with the campers and a product toss afterward. We had a couple of chill sessions, I had a crazy backflip bail, and the crew filmed a few clips before taking off back to reality and the real world. Goodbye Woodward West! We had another great week of summer with you guys and can’t thank you enough for the invite and your hospitality. Till next time…..

Winner of the GO HUCK YOURSELF CONTEST!!!

So it’s official, after nearly a thousand entries in our first ever Go Huck Yourself Instagram Contest we have chosen a winner. The decision wasn’t easy, Hucker had to bring in several outside opinions from the team guys and we even took an extra day to deliberate on the top three so that we could get to a winner. With all that we have chosen a winner and it is this crazy roof drop by @AaronRonnie Enjoy your new set of Revolt Cranks my friend, you deserve them!!!

Woodward Week Day 3

Day 3 here at camp, Dennis has left to go to X, but Dave, BIZ, and Brendan all made it out for the rest of the week and even Enns and Castillo came out for the day to shred. We did it all at camp today, Enns was tossing flips into the foam, Dillsy was doing sick nothings over the pump track’s nipple, Connor and Drew battled on the rolling log in the pool and both filmed sick clips on the BMX, Hucker did one of the craziest things to date in the crater, Drew Hoss road the mechanical bull and we even got to do a bit of bowling at the end of the day. All in all day 3 has been one hell of a day at camp.

Woodward Week Day 2

Day 2 is in the books and the crew has seriously been killing it. Drew Hosselton made it to camp and jumped right into the session filming cool technical clips all over camp. Dennis murdered the hangar which inspired Kris Fox to do one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen in person. I wish I could tell you more about it but you’ll just have to wait for the edit. Dennis is off to X games and Enns, Dillsy, Castillo and BIZ are all on their way to camp to continue with the fun from Demo at Woodward.

The Rob Wise DIG Interview

Just saw that DIG just released the full Rob Wise interview they did a couple issues back.  Be sure to check it out with the full interview HERE.  Insane handicap gap to wallride pic by J.Cobbs.  Click pic to go BIG!
“Rob is always on the hunt for spots when he’s at home in Utah, and this gap wall ride is just one of many ‘Rob only’ type setups. The pole may only be five feet from the wall but take into consideration what it takes to clear you bars and shoulder and you find yourself gapping to the wall from 8-9 feet out. Like I said, Rob ‘only’.”

Demolition Week at Woodward West Day 1

Our first day here at Woodward West for our second annual Demo Week and no time was wasted getting into the swing of things. Dennis, Kris, and Connor were all filming crazy clips and riding with campers throughout the day. Hucker and Tyler both made it to camp just in time for Hucker to over grind the crater’s over-vert quarter on his skateboard and throw down truly amazing cliff hangers on the BMX over at the trails. If the campers weren’t already stoked to be riding with the Demo crew at Woodward they’re beyond stoked when Hucker joins in on the session. Click on the post to check out the craziness from the day, more to come tomorrow…

Your Sunday Morning Wallpaper with Hucker

Hucker and I were out at sheep hills earlier this year shooting some photos for the Legends issue of DIG BMX Magazine. The mag ran a cool feature about the legendary spot, sheep hills, so it was awesome getting to shoot Mike there because he grew up riding sheep and has a true appreciation for how iconic Sheep Hills is in BMX. Anyways, the magazine ended up using a beyond inverted one footed flatty but we had this downside whip as a leftover so why not get it posted as our latest Sunday Morning Wallpaper?!

Josh Perry is Inspiring

Josh Perry: Transcend – More BMX Videos

Most bmxers know what it’s like to get hurt or have a serious injury.  Josh Perry on the other hand has had the most horrific one have done to him, which is brain surgery.  If any of you that know someone that has gone through such a horrific operation knows just how gnarly it is and can be long term.  Josh Perry has been there and came back 100%.  You can see by this video above that his riding hasn’t been affected one bit, the dude shreds!  Inspirational is an understatement.

How to One-Footed Euro With K.Fox

Kris breaks down how to do a proper one-footed euro over our backyard hip in this cool RIDEbmx how to:
“Transition boss and Demolition Parts Pro, Kris Fox, gives a few tips on how to do a one-footed euro table over a hip. Often underrated, the one-footed euro table is a building block trick—it’s not all or nothing like a barspin—so don’t be afraid to give it some attempts. Check the video and go out, start turning the bars, and one day you may, just may, do these as good as Kris.”

Kris’ Road to Recovery

SE Bikes and Dylan Pfohl teamed up to bring out this rad lil’ recovery video of Kris Fox.  Kris has had a ton of coverage on his surgery and process of getting back but this one has him talking about the process.  Hopefully you’ll get a more in-depth idea on what it’s like to get back after a big surgery after this one.

Markit’s Unseen Nor Cal Trip Gallery

A couple months back Christian Rigal, Rob Wise, Ronnie Napolitan and Mike Jonas took a low key filming trip up to the NorCal area to help wrap up their sections for the Markit ZERO DVD. The trip was supposed to be a full blown Makrit Trip but due to some random issues only a couple of the guys could go. Either way I hear the guys murdered everything they rode and got great clips for the DVD. Christian also had his photo camera handy and they guys were able to put out a chill photo gallery from their time up north. Heard over to the MARKIT site to check it out.

Any new signature stuff soon? 
Yes, aside from my SD V2 with Haro, I’m working on a parts line with Demolition, that will include cranks, tires, redesigned bars, a new Markit X Demolition Seat, and a Markit X Demolition grip. That will be done later this year, as well as a promo edit I’m going to start working on soon to go with it. -Dennis Enarson

Dennis Enarson’s 5for5

I never really understood why us humans can learn something one direction easier than the other direction. Why is it easier for half of us to turn to the left than to the right? In any case the world of switch exists in everyday life but especially in BMX. Riders can get something so dialed one direction and have no clue at all about the other. So it’s good practice and good fun to take those tricks that you have dialed and go back to square one by learning them switch. Because we all do this we thought it would be interesting and fun to shoot something called 5for5. 5for5 is where we link up with a Demolition Rider to shoot five tricks one direction and then the same five tricks switch! Dennis Enarson came up with this idea one day during a session in his back yard so thats where we got this whole thing started. Be sure to click on the post and check out our first 5for5 with Dennis Enarson. Enjoy!

Doyle’s European Vacation

Dudes,

I just returned home from Europe where I did a little vacationing and then a little riding. I took my wife to Budapest for a week to do some sightseeing and get a little education on Hungarian culture and history. Then, took a little train ride north to The Czech Republic where we spent a few days in Prague before heading to the small town of Jicin for the “Dirt and Roll” event. Due to a lot of rain in The Czech Republic, the contest wasn’t as good as it could’ve been. However, thanks to some plywood and some concrete, the comp still happened and turned out to be a deece time. It was a great trip, but there’s no place like home! Talk soon, Boys and Girls!

~Chris

Drew Hosselton’s Costa Rican Wallpaper

Drew is easily one of the best riders for a photographer to get to work with. He is always testing the boundaries of what can be done and what is fun to do on the ol’ BMX. Click on this photo of Drew doing some kind of underside feeble grind on a playground obstacle deep in the heart of San Jose Costa Rica, and save it as your new desktop wallpaper!

Brian Castillo Props Interview 1999!

Oh man this is just way too good not to post. Props just released Brian’s props interview to help spread the news about their Road Fools Box Set which is available for pre-order now. I remember this interview coming out, laughing my ass off and then being so stoked to hear about Castillo starting Volume Bikes. This interview pretty much announced the beginning of Volume Bikes and pre-dates Demolition Parts entirely, is that even possible?! Oh how time flies! It’s also pretty amazing to think that Jason Enns was Volume’s first rider and he’s still on a Volume killing it just as hard as ever, 14 years later! I also love the part where the guys are busting Castillo’s chops about owning a CELL PHONE, yes it was considered lame and uppity to own a CELL PHONE! Boy have times changed….
Be sure to watch this now and see how all this monkey business got started.

Dave Does Nothing

Went out the other day with Lazar and Dillewaard to their favorite local cement park, big Chino.  Not only is Chino one of the more slippery parks around, it’s probably one of the best.  Dillzy and Lazar both have insane lines that I haven’t seen too many guys do there too.  This nothing from Dave is a prime example, never really seen this as a jump box but Dave and Lazar killed it.  Click pic to go BIG!

“What’s up guys, I’ve been in New Hampshire for the past few weeks riding, swimming and working on my motorcycle. It’s been fun chillin and riding some parks that I don’t normally get to ride. Also, it’s always good to ride the city (Boston), I’ve been riding there for ten years and still roll up on new stuff every time I go. Here’s a photo shot by Matt Busby, of a new spot we found this weekend. That’s about it for me, hope everyone else has been enjoying there summer.” -Aaron

Drew Hosselton Bike Check

RIDEbmx just recently put up a full bike check up on Drew Hosselton’s whip.  Be sure to check it out and the mini interview where he talks about everything regarding his bike and his custom mods.
How long have you been running the freecoaster? And what are your thoughts on it so far?  I have been on it for a few months and it’s growing on me. I originally got it because I like the way landing fakie looks on a coaster. It took some getting used to and I wanted to ditch it right away, but I’m glad I’ve stuck it out. Once you start to get the hang of it, its just another way to have fun on your bike.”
