It’s crazy to think that we are coming up on a year from when we did our Mountain Mission trip to the heart of Colorado. I got to thinking about the trip and how rad it was, crazy skateparks, crazier locals, daily afternoon thunderstorms, the occasional road rage event, the Mountain Mission was staked with good times. One day we crusied through Colorado Springs to visit Pedal ACTION and did some sight seeing and people watching around town. Aboy took advantage of the spot searching and people watching all in one sick fence ride and came through with this sick here photo. Click on the post and check the photo out big, save it as your desktop wallpaper, and then afterward check out the edit from the trip HERE. Thank you Colorado for all the awesome memories!
Matt Cordova is one of those riders that when you see him ride you become a fan, no matter what kind of riding you’re into, the second you see him roast a double or a quarter and do whatever trick he wants bigger and steezier than anyone else you instantly become a Matt Cordova convert. Needless to say we here at Demolition are all huge Matt Cordova fans and are beyond stoked to have him part of the family! Welcome to the team Matt!!!
All I heard throughout our Japan trip was how much Kris was f-n killing it. He gives it his all everyday and is the nicest guy on and off his bike. Lot of pros that never seen Kris ride before, saw what he’s capable of on the X-Games park course last week (Kris was an alternate). Be sure to check out the Van Doren Invitational August 1 & 3 in Huntington Beach, CA to see Kris in action around that bowl. Pic above is of Kris ripping up a bowl from our Japan trip last month. And if you’re in need of a new front load stem, look no further. Kris’ Stylus stem is available now and fully endorsed by the man himself. Photo by J.Cobbs. Click image to go big!

On one of Jason Enns’ big spot search excursions, he found this random deserted FMX ramp up in the foothills in Norco. He later dragged (we didn’t know what we were in for) Biz and a couple others out there to shoot pics on the 2′ wide ramp. Biz ended up getting this rad looking fakie bars on it, while Enns got an over-tooth that was featured last week on the Volume bikes site. Click image to go BIG.
Kris Fox’s style is timeless, whip out a bike like this over a hip and it will always be something awesome to look at. The #Style4Stylus instagram contest is well underway and we have got a lot of rad entries so for so use the whip as motivation to go out this weekend, get stylish, and submit your entry!
This shot by Cooper Brownlee of Dave was one of the many sick shots he has in his edit. If you haven’t seen Dave’s recent Back Home edit, check it out here >>. Click to go BIG.
I still don’t understand how Tate is capable of some of the things he does on his bike, I don’t think anyone does. But what we can all understand and agree on is that Tate is a creative genius on the BMX. This photo is a few years old now but is just as amazing as the day it was shot, so do yourself a favor and save this timeless photo as your new desktop wallpaper.
Connor Lodes just sent over this stylish hop pic that he shot of Christian from the other day, and we just couldn’t resist but to make it into a desktop wallpaper. Click image to view BIG!
Since there were so many rad photos of the guys posted in the team page update last week, we just can’t help but make them into wallpapers so that your computer’s desktop is up to date with the freshest riding photos out there. Today’s wallpaper is brought to you by none other than New Hampshire’s finest juicer, Aaron “Aboy” Smith. We found this amazing spot on our Colorado trip last year, the spot looked incredible for photos but was tricky to get a real line at in order to make it happen. No one else wanted to give it a go because of the awkward run up but Aaron got it figured out and rode over the door a few times in order to get the photo just right. Click on in to check it out big and then give it a download to freshen up your desktop!
This was seriously one of the most exciting and insane things I’ve ever witnessed in person. Kris already had this gap eyed up when we got to camp last summer and was pretty much dead set on getting in done during Demolition Week. I honestly couldn’t see how he would get the distance to clear the gap because the quarter is so steep but one thing I have learned as a BMX photographer is never doubt a rider when they believe they can do something. In this instance we were both a little bit right, the quarter did shoot him straight up to the moon and had him peaking out about 6-8 feet shy of the roof but as he descended back towards earth, Kris’ AA pro race skills carried his momentum through and he was able to just get his front tire to the edge of the roof followed by the rear. I don’t think Kris could have cut this gap any closer and everyone at camp, including Kris, was relieved that it didn’t get any closer than that.

Dennis absolutely murdered the Spring Product Release Jam on Saturday with too many crazy moves to list. But if you ask me this grind to 180 lookback has the perfect mix of burley, tech, and style into one amazingly rad and rare trick to see done right. So click on this photo to check it out big, save it as your new wallpaper, and get stoked for the next Demo Jam that is sure to go down at a skatepark near you!
Demolition annihilator, Tyler Fernengel, just made it out to Estonia for this year’s Simple Session. Be sure to keep an eye out for Tyler’s runs because I’m sure they will be filled with giant transfers and absurd combos like this here smith to suicide. You gotta love this kid’s riding. Good luck out there Tyler!
You may have noticed in our March Goods post, that just went up on the site? This insane grind to turndown Biz is doing on an up-rail somewhere in Colorado. But if you didn’t, and even if you did I wanted you to see this photo a bit larger so we all can take in how sick this is!
I remember shooting this with Biz and the first try that he really cranked at the rail, he launched off the rail going at least two feet higher than previous attempts and I instantly thought I blew the photo because I was way too close for how high he was going. I shot the photo anyways and hoped for the best and to my amazement he wasn’t cropped out of the frame at all! So I always get stoked when I see this photo because I remember how lucky I felt the moment I first saw it and for how crazy a turndown this is out of a grind up a rail! For those reasons I just couldn’t help but post this by itself so it can get a little more love.
Jason has got a knack for finding the hardest things to ride and riding them better than anyone. This park is packed with fun things to ride but this bowl is a bit of pain in the ass. It’s about five feet tall and has a mellow transition but then kinks to vert six inches below the coping, making it a silent killer if your not careful! But leave it to Enns to take most peoples “sketchy setup” and turn it into an awesome bump jump quarter and then go ahead and do six foot tables out of it! Enns is the man!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “Doyle is one of my favorite guys to shoot with”. He has no problem (usually) shooting stuff multiple times and he’s always up for a cool pic and will usually do what he has to do in order to get the picture just right. Basically every photographers dream subject. This one is no different, we tried a couple long lens shots, got it and then he obliged to try some fisheye ones next. Click to go BIG!
I can’t speak for all photographer’s but my worst nightmare is being at the right place at the right time and just plain missing the shot. There are a million things that can cause you to miss the photo. Exposure, focus, lighting, timing, framing are all standing by to ruin the shot. It only takes one of these elements to ruin a photo and it takes all of them to make one.
The day this photo was shot Dennis had been riding this rail for a while trying to figure out something for it. He had a few things in mind, all of which were insane, but none of them were working out quite right. He then started floating these 180 downside whips out of the rail, not really coming close at first but if you know Dennis it doesn’t take him long to get something dialed in. So while he was feeling out the trick with his first few attempts, I was trying to get the framing just right so he was framed by the railing at the same time that the railing was blocking out the sun. It was optimistic framing at best, anytime the sun wasn’t blocked by the railing it completely blew out the whole shot, but when it worked I thought it looked great so I just kept the framing and tried to keep consistent with it. The next thing I knew Dennis floated a huge downside 180 whip, the first one he was on top of, and absolutely stopped the shit out of it. I had already snapped the photo and was praying that he would be able to complete the rollback which seemed to be happening in slow motion. Once he came out of the rollback we had a celebration and checked the footy, the sun was hidden behind the rail, the timing was good, and everything was in frame and in focus, breathing a huge sigh of relief!
We put this same trick of Christian up as an Insta Vid yesterday and didn’t even know Christian also took a pic of it till this morning when he sent over this gem. I for one always loved this trick when guys like Christian do it so fast that they get fully sideways throughout the curve. Click image to go big or right click image to save to your desktop.

Drew did a couple of really cool things on this tight quarter that is right in front of a hair salon in Phoenix AZ.

Christian, Connor, and a few other buddies met up to cruise some San Diego spots and try to stay dry as a rare storm loomed over head. It began to rain just in time to ruin everything but luckily before everything got wet I was able to shoot this rad photo of Chrisitian carving high up into this famous SD vert wall. Click on the post to check it out big and save it as your new wallpaper.
Tyler has been out in California for the last few weeks making an impression with his riding pretty much everywhere he goes. While in SD during a casual afternoon session he decided to drop in on this huge, gritty, inconsistent and steep slab of crete.

When I was a kid I used to spend $15 dollars every single time I went to Taco Bell. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, those meals were delicious! But if I could have used that same money to buy a top of the line Doyle Pivitol seat I would have! If this sale hit back in my taco bell days I may not have quite the huge gut that I have today. Be smart kids, put down the taco bell and pick up one of these Doyle seats HERE while supplies last because once they’re gone they’re gone forever! And Taco Bell will always be there…..
Now click on this sick photo of Doyle whipping a huge set at Panamoka on last year’s trails trip and save it as your new desktop wallpaper.
Mr. Creative, Tate Roskelley, is always approaching BMX from a new direction and has been for years. When the masses of BMX are looking one way for inspiration, Tate is looking the other way. When I came across this photo that I shot of Tate three years ago, it reminded me of just that fact, Tate is always keeping it fresh. And somehow only Tate knew that the sky would be the same color as the button up shirt that he decided to wear that day, providing proof that Tate truly is creativity from head to toe.
If you’ve seen Demolition last full length DVD, Last Chance, then you may remember this huge gap that Dennis tailwhipped for his section in the video. We made a poster of this whip using a single shot photo from another angle but I also set up this camera for a sequence and had Rob Wise man the shutter. No matter what angle you look at this things it’s huge but I always thought this was a pretty cool perspective and because it never ended up getting used for anything why not post it online for you guys to take a look at?! Better late than never…
Connor and I shot this photo last year during an awesome backyard session and our friend Brian’s house in the easy bay of San Francisco. We originally shot this photo to be a part of an ID that Connor and I were working on but somehow the project fell through the cracks and never came to be. But the photos we shot still exist and here is one of the ones I like most. I love the vibe that backyard ramps have, the way they are just barely fit into the extra space in someone’s life and then are able to provide so much enjoyment, there’s definitely nothing quite like a backyard ramp.
Anyone that knows Dennis, knows that he goes all in every time he rides. This huge whip pic is classic Dennis; fast, big and shirtless. Click image to go big or go to RIDEbmx for the full Wallpaper. Pic by Keith Mulligan
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?!

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.

I was up in Toronto Canada recently and was lucky enough to run into our Canadian shredder, Chijioke Okafo, while I was out there. Toronto is stacked with awesome spots and Chijioke has no problems shredding every one of them so we thought we’d give you a little taste with this week’s Sunday morning wallpaper.

So we all heard about the giant viking that would lay claim to all weak bars across the land and how he developed his own bars that would suit all big and small! They are called the COMBAT bar and the vikings name is RONNIE NAPOLITAN. Now click on this photo of Ronnie roasting tabes out of the scariest bowl in Costa Rica, and save it as your new desktop wallpaper!
It seems like anyone who is lucky enough to get to ride Barcelona must make the trek down to the Sea Walls and get some carves in on the legendary quarters. While the rest of us were carving the quarters Ronnie was blasting fast-plant tables so I just had to put the bike down and pick up the camera to snap a few and I’m stoked that I did.

RIDEbmx just put up 2 of my favorite wallpapers as of late. The one of Enns (shot by Ryan Fudger) was from their mag a couple issues back and the one of Tate (shot by Keith Mulligan) is from awhile back from the mag. Both are amazing tricks as well as perfectly shot photos. Click HERE to view them both bigger for your desktop wallpaper.
I was cruising through my hard drives recently and found this gem of our boy BIZ doing a sick downside whip at one of his many local spots. We originally shot this photo for our Spring Tee Flip Book the we put together last year. Check out the ID and then click on BIZ’s downside whip to save it as your new desktop wallpaper!
Check out this photo we got during our Beautiful Day in May session. This photo was just too good to lump in with the rest so I had to hang onto it for a couple days and post it separately. This bank was big and steep and Biz decided to do an early 180 low in the bank, fakie up to the top and boost a super sick barspin straight back down the bank. Click on the photo, check it out big, and save it as your new desktop wallpaper.
RIDEbmx just put up their latest weekend wallpapers and one features our very own, Christian Rigal bombing over a over rail to steep bank. Photo by Ryan Fudger

Daaaamn I love this picture. Not only is it an awesome California pic (bright colors, blue sky and etc), it’s of Pat Casey going absolutely huge at Big Chino. Indian air seat grabs just don’t get any better than this folks! And having Pat show off those Demolition Momentum white walls gets me even more stoked. Check out the full wallpaper over at RIDEbmx.
