Kris Fox and Matt Cordova took a trip back to CO (right after our own CO trip) to ride some new parks a few weeks ago and just recently came back. Matt took a couple darkside shots of Kris while Kris was working on a new Demolition edit. Stay tuned for more info on the edit soon… Check out the long lens shot of the same trick after the jump.
“Here’s the third and last video from our Tea & Biscuits UK Tour featuring shop stops at Alpha BMX, Pro Cycle Center, and The Source BMX Shop. Thanks again to Steve Bancroft and Rusty at Elephant as well as all the shops for the great times! Lets do it again soon guys! Enjoy” — Mastroni
Day 3 and 4 of the trip are in the books and have kept up with the pace that this stacked crew set early on in the trip. Tuesday started off at a delicious bagel breakfast spot and ended at SuperFly’s jump in Long Island, Keyko. Those trails were rad and the locals all came out to chill with us and have some laughs. Can’t thank Supes enough for letting the crew get out there and session for the afternoon.
Yesterday brought us to Action Wheels in Bethlehem, PA. Those dudes we sooo sick and have such a solid scene that they made us feel right at home as soon as we got there. We hung out at the shop for a bit, signing autographs and giving out stickers, until we all rolled down the road to the local skate plaza for a session with the locals. Once there we saw one of the craziest bunnyhop contests ever where one kid sheered his stem clean off and then we ended the session with a little rain and a product toss. HUGE thanks goes out to Action Wheels and the awesome dudes that run that shop for their hospitality and for showing us such a great time!!
Day 2 of the trip brought us back to Panamoka for seconds. Those trails are so good that the crew just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go back there to get another session in. Part way through the day Chris took a pretty bad spill so he and Dillewaard headed off to the hospital to be safe and get Chris checked out. After a couple hours we got the call that Doyle was all good and so we all met up at the Applebees and finished the day over some food and drinks. Everyone on the crew wants to give a HUGE thanks to Keith Terra and the other Panamoka locals for allowing us to come ride and showing us a great session. Thanks again guys!!
Is case you thought I was serious, our buddies Ronald and Dennis are not turning Japanese. They recently traveled to Japan with the Haro team and Ron was awesome enough to send some photo over from their trip along with an update on what he has been up to lately. Check out the photos from their trip by clicking on the post.
“Hey everyone, just checking in and letting everyone know what I have been up too. Last couple months have been really crazy for me. Ive only actually been home for like a total of 2 weeks since July! Just been on the move, and riding a ton. I just got back from Japan yesterday on a Haro Bikes trip. It was such a good trip, got to hang with the boys and eat some crazy food haha. Ill be at nora cup/interbike this year also, and right after that some of the Demolition boys and I will be on the east coast for a Demolition Dirt trip. Im looking forward to that so badly you guys have no idea. Ive been dying to get flow some trails with a bunch of good friends. Yeah other than that Ill hopefully be chillin and filming for the MARKIT video as well.. haha been busy but couldnt be happier! talk to you guys soon and here are some pics from Japan! Later Everyone!” — Ronnie
Demolition has quite the stacked crew of trail riders so it seemed only logical to put together an all trails trip through some of the best trails in the WORLD. We’ve teamed up with QBP and have been working on making this happen for quite some time now so the crew is getting seriously excited for this trip to get started!! We’ll also be stoping at several shops along the way so if your in the area at the listed times be sure to come by and say whats up! And be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter @DemolitionParts and get up dates from the trip at #northeastdirttrip
Greetings from Toulouse, France! After Kill The Line, myself, Dillewaard, and Heath Pinter linked up with Jeremy “Jems” Muller and his Compression crew for a week long trail trip through the south of France. We’ve been welcomed to some of the best trails that Europe has to offer by accommodating locals and friendly faces. We’ve swam in oceans and rivers, and partied till dark in the woods. This trip has been nothing short of amazing. Big thanks to all the locals who showed us a great time!

Today was spent dodging rain and riding bikes in the home of television and the spiritual home of UK BMX, Hastings. First off we checked the infamous Marina double set to see if Stevie was feeling any bar raising, but the wind was howling head on so we had to turn our backs on the status spot and head to the shelter of The Source’s backyard set up. We rode there for a couple of hours before drinking another few litres of tea and heading over to 4Down’s new indoor facility. The place is really well designed and finished to a super high standard and, although only a couple of weeks old, has already been sessioned by a slewth of UK and US big shots. Stevie and Broc more than held their own and laid down a fair few firsts, big shout out to Ian, Dean, Coxie, Bomber, Wildcat and Mark and Rich Moore. Cheers – Elephant Distribution Click above image for the full gallery
Dartmoor today for some hiking and sightseeing. Stevie Churchill is afraid of heights so he couldn’t climb up the rock, it’s weird as he’ll 360 El Torro without batting an lash but he’s too scared to climb up a billion year old stack of granite. Doyle broke up the long drive and entertained by reciting infamous scenes from the Spinal Tap film as we drove past Stonehenge.
We arrived at Brighton BMX about 4pm and the grill was lit. We rode the ramps and flipped burgers until the sun went down. After dark we hit the bar where Hucker ordered a quadruple Jamesons, the bar maid commented that it was the biggest drink they had ever served, Hucker’s reply was, “You better stick another shot in it then.” Mastroni was on for a promise from an “earthy” looking hippy chick but he was forced to abort mission after he discovered she was going to be snorting horse tranquilizers and exploring dark caves.
Cheers to shop owner Bob for putting on a great spread. – Elephant Distribution Click above image for the full galleryt
Long drive to Newton Abbot today. Our mini bus is restricted to 58 mph so we get over taken a lot. Kye and Leo Forte kindly put us up for a couple of nights and we had a great session at Kye’s new shop PCC. The jump box was sessioned heavy by all and a good day was topped off with an equally out of hand session at Ye Old Cider Bar. With names like ‘Desiel’, ‘Suicide’ and ‘Black Rat’ it’s no wonder the next morning we saw a bit of a slow start. I’ve heard one of the drinks in that place referred to as “Liquid Down Syndrome”.
Dave and his crew at Rad BMX went all out for us yesterday with homemade cakes, a sweet jumpbox, party, food and reiki for Doyle’s bad shoulder all made for a swell time with a chill vibe.
In a very different session to the grindy one at the previous day’s Dub Jam, the box jump outside Rad BMX was trained nonstop for 5 hours. We met a guy called Fat Paul who talks solidly and who only stops when he hears the word “Bungalow”. Many autographs were signed and we had to wrestle Doyle away from the place as the Rad dudes were set on keeping him for themselves in a specially designed room above the shop. – Elephant Distribution Click above image for the full gallery
The highly anticipated final round of the Dub Jam was a bit of a wash out but even with the flash floods, thunder, lightening and an ever decreasing dry spot at South Banks, it still made for a great time.
Monster had a couple grand to give away and the setup was simple, “do a good trick, get £20”. Stevie has lots of good tricks so this worked out very nicely for him. Lucky too, as he was all out of money.
It was hard to see through all the pot smoke and rasta coloured stems, but amongst the contestants were a fair few big named street dogs, Benny L, Dan Lacey, AK, Bruno Hoffman were all laying it down hard. – Elephant Distribution Click above image for the full gallery
Another day of tea and biscuits. Today we went to Alpha BMX shop and Stoke Street Plaza. Shop owner Al Munger went to town and arranged a full on event, complete with insurance, a gazebo, power, music, water and some MILFS!
– Russell made at least 500 cups of tea today
– Lots of things got signed, including but not limited to; foreheads, rat tails and scooters
– Hucker demanded that the next time we have a tour we include on the flier the line “Bring your mom”
– Hucker got street and ditched his brakes
– He also killed the bowl before ejecting at full height and killing his back
– Then he flirted with a ginger police lady
– A grown man approached me and said “Can you please introduce me to Chris Doyle, I’m more nervous about talking to him than I am about talking to girls.”
– Hucker bought a bottle of Jack from a bar at £90 (approx $145)
Now we’re off to London Town for Dub Jam. . . – Elephant Distribution

We met up with kick flip connoisseur, Phil de Mattia who kindly lead us on a guided spot tour of Britain’s streetest city, Liverpool. It was a fine day and most of the crew just sat back and laughed while Stevie Churchill effortlessly raised the bar a few notches at some of Liverpool’s most infamous spots. The double drop at Tunnel Banks has seen its fair share of action over the years, Phelan has whipped it and a couple of dudes have three’d it. After Stevie threw in his 2p’s worth it’s hard to imagine what the next big move there could possibly be.
Hucker was having a blast bar riding all over town hollering at girls, until he fell off in front of a coach causing the driver to slam on the brakes and throw all his passengers violently forward, livid Scouse bus drivers are some of the scariest humans on the planet and Hucker felt the wrath. After that he kept his feet more on his pedals than his grips.
In the evening we headed to Rampworx to drink tea and eat biscuits with one thousand riders. Doyle, Hucker and Churchill killed the place and by the end of the night the scene was verging on biblical, with the crew being treated as Gods and us feeding the 5000 with tea and Hobnobs.
Big thanks to all the crew at the park for hooking us up, they went all out with their hospitality – free food, drinks and bike parts. They’ve had their doors open now for 15 years now and it’s all down to their commitment and awesome attitude. – Elephant Distribution

Yesterday was a day of airport laps and trails. We went to Epsom (trails) and Fids (legendary UK rider) made a few people’s day with a flip-off nothing over the last set. Was a good day; we drove up to Liverpool and today we’re riding street until 6pm, then we have a demo/stop at Rampworx. Should be a good time.- Elephant Distribution Click the photo above to view the whole gallery.
Woodward Week is over but Tate and Rob didn’t fly back to SLC till Sunday night. So we cruised around Southern California, hit up some schools, ate some mexican food and waited for their flight to come around. We even got to pay a visit to this famous Castillo spot. Rob felt inspired so he fired out this timeless fufanu to pay tribute to a Legendary school. Check the rest of the photos from the day after the jump.
Woodward week has come to an end and I can’t even begin to think about all the fun we had throughout the week, huge thanks goes out to Woodward as well as all the Demo riders that came out to make it a sucsessful week. After we left camp, Rob, Tate and I headed out towards Bakersfield for some spot searching. We found a few decent things but for sure the highlight of the day was Dewar’s Ice Cream shop. This place was awesome, check out what Rob dared to order after the jump!
Leave it to Tate to bring a new move to an old setup. Tire slide to 180 off the pole jam in the hanger.
The first thing Stevie did when he got in camp was put on a demo by himself in the outdoor street section. The result of which is this ridiculous truck driver over the bank to flat for the Photo of the Day.
Sad day at camp for some and a happy day for others. Russ, Chris, Aaron and Gabe all had to say their goodbyes today as they are heading back home. Everybody had an awesome time so although they were bummed to say goodbye they were excited to come back sometime soon. And with one crew leaving another arrives. A few hours after the guys left, Tate, Rob and Stevie arrived at camp for their turn at camp life. Check the rest of the day’s photos after the jump
Day 4 here at Woodward and the crew is really settling into camp life and making good friends with some of the campers. A ton of awesome riding went down today but I’d have to say the highlight of the day was the long jump contest. It was a sight to see some of the campers hit this little kicker at full sprint, luckily there were no wrecks and tons of entertainment! The crew settled in early to ensure best view of the action while maintaining the most comfort in the shade! Check out the photos from the rest of the day after the jump
It’s day 3 of Woodward Week and things are really heating up, so much so that Hucker decided to blast Gabe in the face while watering the dirties. If you can’t tell by the photos, the crew is having waaaayyyyy too much fun out here at Woodward West. We can’t thank the camp enough for all the fun we’ve been having. Check the rest of the photos from the day after the jump
It’s day 2 of Woodward Week and the session is going off at camp. The campers are super cool and the crew is having an awesome time riding and laughing with everyone, it seems like every session is more fun than the last. And in the midst of it all Hucker filmed this ridiculous bar ride line through the entire camp, just wait till you see the clip! Check out the rest of the photos from the day after the jump!
It’s the day before we head out to Woodward and we decided to ride some street in the 909 with Biz Enns, and Dillewaard. Counting those three, we had 7 demo riders all together today which is so sick, left to right we got Dillewaard, Aboy, Enns, Doyle, Gabe, Russ, Mastroni(Demo Filmer) and BIZ. These guys all have some serious riding skills, but they can also bust chops with the best of them, so you know there were plenty of good laughs and good riding throughout the day. Check out more photos from the day after the jump.
Next week is Demolition’s first ever Woodward week so Doyle, Aboy and Russ Barone flew out a few days early to cruise around Southern California and have some fun before heading out to Woodward for more fun. Check out the photos from the first day of fun after the jump.
Well we were on the coast doing a Cali Coast trip but the weather got wet in a hurry so we headed inland for dryer grounds, therefor making this more of a Cali trip than a Coast trip… Check out the photos after the jump.
Day 3 and we got a full day of spot searching and street riding in. The best day yet for sure! Big Thanks to Alex Raban and his homies for showing us around! Check out these images after the jump and click each pic to go BIG.
It’s day 2 and things are heating up. We started the day with an awesome park session in Solvang and then we rode a sick back yard mini set up. We ended the day with a memorable, to say the least, session at Cal Poly in SLO, but you’ll have to wait for those photos… But for now, check out these images after the jump and click each pic to go BIG.
Goods just recently put up pics of our meet and greet on their site. Turnout was awesome and we hope to see you guys soon again. Portland absolutely rules, definitely a bicycle friendly city. Check here for their blog update

“I just got back from a contest/filming trip in Guadalajara. It’s an amazing city. The people were so friendly and helpful. Alex Vasquez from Mutante Bikes brought us down and showed us a great time. I wish we could have stayed longer. I shot a few photos with my little camera of some of the stuff that went on while we were there. The crew was great and everyday/night was a real adventure. Can’t wait to go back. Titanic blue we will miss you!!!! enjoy the pictures” –Escamilla
A crew of us went out to Desert Hot Springs yesterday to hit the park and a few spots. It was hot but no wind, click below for more pics.
The weather has been on and off the whole time we’ve been in SLC, with the exception of today, which was perfect. Click below to see some more pics from the last few days.
Woke up to pouring rain today in SLC. It was one of those days where it would almost dry up, then dump on you again. We got soaked a few times and not in the good Utah way.
Day 5 We took the boat over to The Rock. It was more of a sight seeing day, so if your looking for riding photo’s you don’t need to click the read more button. Just a warning
We hit out first park on day 4. Everybody was pretty sore and we thought Benicia park would be a good warm up spot.We got there early, even though it was Memorial Day it was still empty.
This post is a bit late, due to no Internet connection for the last few days. It was another good day filled with awesome spots. We were all up and out early today, a little too early for Biz, seen here napping as Christian boost. Here a few pics for you to enjoy after the jump
Today the crew met up with Joey Cobbs and Greg Sumida.. The weather was perfect and the spots were the same. Everybody got good clips and believe it or not nobody got sick from Boston Market.
Osato, Biz,Christian ,and myself packed up the Van today and headed to San Jose for the memorial day weekend. It was a hectic day on the road, a few wrecks and one wrong turn for 60 miles and we made it.
Last riding day of the trip started off at Arvada park that we had a chill session at till the rain hit us hard again midway through. Fox and Cordova found some lines real quick and banged out a few high ass airs for the blog though. Later that evening we headed over to Pusher for our shop stop. The scene that Clay and crew have is so good, real good vibes and everyone was really stoked to be there. Can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and showing some love. We got a few photos throughout the day after the jump.
Don’t forget that today at 6pm we’re going to be at Pusher BMX to hang out, ride, and we’re bringing freebies! We’ve been having a blast so far in Colorado and we can’t wait to hang with you guys and visit Clay and all the Pusher boys again.
For all those that haven’t been to the Parker park right out of Denver, you’re missing out. The locals are cool as hell and the park has just about everything for every type of rider. Everyone of our guys got into it quick and stayed busy most of the time in the bowl going high as hell and getting their speed lines on. In typical Colorado fashion, we got kicked out due to a heavy thunderstorm but it cleared up after an hour or so, then went back for an epic sunset session. Check out what we got ourselves into after the jump.
Yesterday the crew went to the Brighton park and handled business till a crazy storm rolled through and took our session out. Since we have 10 guys, it’s always a mission at each park and usually stay for a bit. Dennis did some “casual” riding this time for blog photos. Tyler did the craziest thing so far on the trip, you’ll see what it is very soon. The guys came through with a ton of photos/ clips at this park. After the storm we headed to Estes to check out the hotel that the movie the Shining was shot in. As usual, we had a good time trying to find “unusual activity” but found nothing. But then again, we haven’t checked all our photos to see who’s lurking in the windows… Back to the campfire that night for another gorgeous Colorado night. Check out all the fun here>>
Our bmx road trip to CO has been one for the books already and we’re only midway through. The guys have been stacking clips for the video and have been getting a ton of solid photos in the process too. We’ve also been bonding quite a bit while sitting around the campfire and have been learning that much more about one another. Tyler being the youngest one of the group is always “trying” to get in trouble, Dennis is a f-n machine on his bike and helps our young Tyler get into trouble by egging him on for anything that comes to Tyler’s head, Connor is now known as K-Rob due to his vigorous workouts and his Muscle Milk intake, Kris is just as smooth off his bike as he is on it, Cordova has been going so high on everything he hits at the parks, one has to wonder how the hell he does it, Doyle is the older seasoned vet that Tyler says his Mom is about the same age as him, and Rob is the mountaineer of the group that can whittle a knife out of a twig to kill his own food. The guys also rode their asses off yesterday and got some amazing new action shots. Hit it to see em all.
First riding spots of our camping trip and the guys went all in at Boulder and Sandstone parks. Weather here has been amazing and everyone is stoked to always have a pond/creek/ river nearby all the parks to jump into to always stay cool. With such a stacked crew on this trip, it’s hard to find just a few riding shots for the blog update but we’ll save the better ones for wallpapers later on too. Hit that more button to see all the riding shots and then some…
With our 15 hr drive to CO finally over, we set up camp in the middle of the forrest courtesy of the Cordova family letting us use their family cabin. The guys all setup their tents and miscellaneous stuff last night, and ready for a day of riding today. Stay tuned for riding shots and full gallery tomorrow. This trip is a bit off the grid but where there’s wifi, there’s always a Starbucks.
We’ve been planning (okay, mostly talking) this Colorado camping trip for some time now and it’s finally here. Clay at Pusher BMX was also kind enough to have us for a shop stop. We’ll be there July 16th at 6p, and we’ll have plenty of giveaways, contests and etc too. We have a stacked crew of heavy hitters with Fernengel, Doyle, Lodes, Fox, Cordova, Enarson, and Rob Wise!! Be sure to get out there if you’re in the area. If we don’t see you at Pusher, we’ll definitely see you guys at the surrounding parks. Hit the flyer to go BIG.

The dream trip is finally over! After three weeks of road tripping from the very north tip of New Zealand to the very south tip, the Red Bull Tip to Tail crew wrapped up a trip that had all of us at the office foaming from the mouth. Amazing empty parks, perfectly sculpted trails, and more breath taking sceneries rounded out the southern half of the trip. Check out the full gallery by Graeme Murray and story on the Red Bull site. If you missed the update from the first half of the trip, you can check that out here.
Hucker, Fox, and our homie Bohan have been on a Red Bull‘s #TipToTail trip for the past couple weeks, driving all the way across New Zealand in a couple RVs. So far, it looks like there has been no shortage of good times! Red Bull just put up a huge update from the first half of the trip in the North. Check it out HERE and stay tuned for more updates from the South. Sounds like there will be a web series to follow as well, can’t wait to see that! Photo by Graeme Murray.
Day 7 of Demolition in Florida and it is our last day here in the sunshine state. Since we got rained out yesterday and haven’t had a ton of luck finding spots on this trip in general the crew was more than anxious to get out on the bikes for the last day of the trip. We started the day at a famous spot in Tampa with these awesome volcanos, it was hard knowing what has or hasn’t been filmed on the volcanos already but a few things were figured out and it was just a ton of fun riding them just to ride em. Hucker and Tyler did manage to find a random little grass flyout and proceeded to do tricks out of it that we never intended for such a halfass setup. After the volcano park we packed up the van and headed back to Orlando to squeeze in a session at the famous Maitland quarters. We didn’t have along at the spot before we needed to take Hucker to the airport so the crew wasted no time getting on the bikes and having a blast on this street setup that is pretty much too perfect to be true. After riding the quarters as much as we could we had to scramble and race to the airport to get Hucker to his flight, lucky for him we hit a string of green lights and open lanes and were able to get him checked with about sixty seconds to spare. Have fun in New Zealand Hucker and thank your Florida for the good times! Until the next adventure…
Day 6 here in the sunny state and its raining again. The crew woke up stoked because we had ended the previous day finding a few awesome setups that they guys had ideas for and wanted to film at. The weather had been great the past few days so none of us suspected a thing, but when we all woke up to dark skies the mood shifted and we instantly started checking weather reports around the state to see what our option were. The reports said we had till 2pm before the storm would hit in Tampa, so we got out, hit some breakfast real quick and got to the spot round 10. We barely got out of the van and the crew just got warmed up when the rain drop started falling. By 11am it was pouring, a whole 3 hours ahead of schedule, so we started checking out hours for the indoor parks. After realizing there were no BMX hours that day for any local skateparks we took a note from “The Big Lebowksi” and said screw it dude, lets go bowling. Even though we got rained out we kept positive and had a blast bowling, and made frequent trips to WaWas and Dunkin’ Donuts. Be sure to click on the post and check out our day in the rain for day 6 of Demolition in Florida.
Howdy Howdy from us out here in Florida, its been a couple days since our last update so let me get you guys up to date on what we’ve been up to. Day 4 had us traveling south to Sarasota for the 3rd stop in the FLBMX contest series at the Payne Skatepark. The main bowl at the Payne park is filled with scary extensions, over vert bowl corners and more lines than can be counted and the locals we’re all killing it. After the contest, we checked in our hotel which happened to have a balcony so Tyler immediately dangled himself on said balcony(photo in gallery). We the cruised out to a beach on the Caribbean that had all the locals tripping out on watching the sun set over the ocean. Day 5 was our first full riding day and lucky for us we saw Matt Coplon the day before at the contest and he had told us about a few spots to check out when we had a chance. So we spent most the day cruising the streets of St Petersburg checking out the spots Matt told us about, we also stubbled on a building that was in the middle of being Demolished, so feeling a bit inspired by our namesake we tossed some cinder blocks around while Tyler did tricks on big street gap nearby. We had to hang onto the photo of Tyler’s gap but for now check out our photo gallery from days 4 and 5 from Demolition in Florida.
Day 3 of our trip out here in Florida and the skies are clear! After starting the day with the obligatory Cracker Barrel breakfast, the crew was stoked to get the chance to head over to Chad Degroot’s bike shop, Mr. Bikes N Boards, in Longwood Florida. Chad’s shop is sick! And in no time the guys were sessioning with the locals, shooting some pool, and eating pizza. Rob was extra stoked on the pizza part, you may not know by looking at him but the one thing Rob loves more than bikes, guns or girls, is FOOD and he loves the hell out of pizza so he was stoked. After hanging out at the shop for a bit we cruised over to the local prefab park and rode some more with the locals. The riders out in Longwood are sick and even though there park is a bit small they really make the most of it and shred the place to pieces. After the session we headed over to a local alligator bar and Hucker and Tyler bobbed hotdog pieces on gator noses until some got eaten, it was a little less exciting than all of us had hoped… All in all though it was a good day and were looking forward to more. Stay tuned for more updates from our Demolition trip to Florida!
Greetings from the sunshine state, and well, it’s raining! Or at least it was yesterday when the crew made it out to Kona skatepark and we were are within arms reach of getting to ride a place we’ve all dreamed of since we were kids. That place looks insane and we are all hoping we can make our way back up to Jacksonville for another shot at a Kona session. Since the rain killed the session yesterday we kept busy with mini ping pong tournaments and late night waffle house missions which kept everyone more than entertained while it was soggy outside. Day two though was shinning and good thing too because we landed an awesome hotel on Ormond Beach and Huck and Tyler immediately found a place to buy kites and they did the kid thing while the rest of us watched and tried not to get hit by cars on the beach. We then rolled over to The Bike Shop in Ormond Beach and chilled with all the shops guys and locals, the crew out there is rad and they ended the day by taking us out to the local park for a good ol fashion bike ride. Hucker was having some bike issues so he and Rob made lemons into lemonade and made the first ever bike centipede, Hucker has been talking a lot about the Human Centipede so he may have gotten inspiration from the movie but you’d have to ask him about that. We then watched Tyler shut down the skatepark with a couple of amazing clips, and you know with Mastroni behind the lens the clips are SO SICK! Cant wait for you guys to see, but for now, click on the post and check out all the rad photos from the crew’s first two days in Florida!
The Demolition Crew is coming to Florida to hang out and ride at a skatepark or bike shop near you. Check out the flyer and if your anywhere near Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota or Tampa be sure to come out and hang out! See you there.
Dennis and I were lucky enough to go on a trip to Portugal to film an edit for Nokia phones. The whole edit was filmed with the new Nokia lumia which is pretty crazy. Thanks to Hadrian for having us come out to ride and have an adventure in Portugal. From the views to the spots, Portugal was amazing! We got to ride some skateparks as well as street when we were out there and like you can see in the edit, it was all awesome. Of course Dennis was doing the most insane stuff on a daily basis. Even though I know how good he is he still seems to surprise me with something new all the time. We were out there for 10 days and on the last day Dennis and I both got sick. He got it the worst, we are thinking it was food poisoning from the last place we ate at. The whole trip we had an awesome friend showing us around and taking us to the best places to eat, and of course on the last day he wasn’t there and we got sick as shit. Thanks Hadrian, nuno, and Hugo for showing us around and hanging out and making this trip one that won’t be forgotten! – Ronnie
