S.L.C. in the I.E.

2U0A2293

Demolition’s Mormon and ICP ambassadors, Rob Wise and Tate Roskelley, made it out to California this week to hang out with the homies and work on filming projects they’ve been putting together. So we got a crew together and wanted to ride somewhere during the week where we would be hassled very little and ride a whole lot. We decided on the Inland Empire, about eighty miles East of Los Angeles, our ideas were pure but the outcome was not so much. We got kicked out of most everything we tried to ride and we got harassed quite a bit in the process, we did however manage to have a blast regardless of the man shutting us down. By the end of the day though we witnessed Tate get a crazy badass clip, the only one of the day, we got to see Enns arm wrestle a praying mantis, and we witness lots and lots of human feces laying about in the streets of San Bernardino. Tate even made it a point to start collecting human feces photos to later create some kind of shitty collage I imagine. Click on the post to see all the images from our day and stay tuned for more from Rob and Tate’s trip to California.

Window Shooting with Kris Fox

7

Recently an awesome request came up to provide a photo that would be made into a Demolition full window print for the Southern California, BMXcentric bike shop, Epic Ride Shop. Since I didn’t have a photo already shot that fit the bill just right I met up with Demolition Style Cat, Kris Fox, to shoot something for the window print. Aussie Demolition rider, Boyd Hilder, was in town with good friend Jason Watts so we all met up to try and search out the perfect spot to shoot this window photo. After cruising around some LA ditches for a while we noticed the influx of homeless complexes that dot the ditch scene and because of that the lack of any boards, carpets, or useful water bridging trash that you might normally find in any urban ditch. So after coming up empty handed in the ditches and it being a weekday we decided to go to familiar territory in the form of Ben Snowden’s backyard ramps. We had a fun resi session, I climbed high up into a treetop perch, we shot a rad photo for the window and the mission was a success. Click on the post to check out all the photos from our day and to also see this huge flair that Boyd is blasting in the photo above.

Where in the World is Kris Fox?

Fox1

To say Kris Fox is having an awesome year would be a huge understatement, throw in a couple of overwhelmingly positive descriptive words and a couple of expletives out of excitement and then you might be in the ballpark of describing the kind of year Kris has been having. Between traveling to the far corners of the globe to ride, getting the invite to the biggest contests of the year, to rubbing elbows on trips with the legends of the sport, Kris has been non-stop so when I had the chance to ask his a few questions about all this I jumped on it. Click on the post to check what Kris had to say and while your at it be sure to click through some photos from Kris’ year.

Hanging Out With RideBMX

2U0A1672A

Well not literally actually hanging out with the magazine, not sure if that’s possible. But when you have three veteran Demolition team members, Christian Rigal, Connor Lodes and Ryan BIZ Jordan, linking up with Ride’s Associate Editor, Ryan Fudger, to work on some stuff for the mag you get excited! And believe me the day did not disappoint! It always amazing me the setups these guys find on the streets and the things they’re able to make happen on them. But because I don’t want to spoil what they were up to in hopes that we will soon be seeing everything print, I kept behind the scenes and shot photos of the guys hanging out between clips, which with this crew is hardly a dull moment. check out our photos from the day and then go get one more session in before the weekend ends!

Rig Line Wallpaper

rig-wallpaper
When I was a kid I used to dream of new parts coming out and what the hottest thing was at that time was.  I feel like Dennis’ Rig line is that for me now.  I’m pumped on every item (Rig Bar / Rig Tire / Rig Crank) and how f-n strong/ durable they are.  That little kid in me was stoked to see this photo that J.Cobbs shot of all the parts together.  Hit the photo to go BIG!  While you’re at it, check out Dennis’ last interview about the whole line here>>

Christian Rigal Pegs Feature

Christian RIgal Pegs Feature

Pegs have become synonymous with Rigal’s riding. Every web edit and DVD section he’s put together in the last few years has pushed the four peg game to places no one else has. I would bet that if you asked any rider out there what their most memorable clip of Christian is that every response given would be a clip of him using one, two, three or four of his pegs in some new Christian kind of way. What might not come immediately to mind, unless you’ve followed Christian’s riding from the beginning, is that he can do crazy shit on anything he wants. Ramps, trails, street and I’m sure flatland too if he wanted. Often times the stuff that he is doing without pegs is just as crazy and unique as his grind game, so we went out riding with Christian and put together this series of photos of him out there killing it without the use of his grinders. Click top photo to open the gallery.  Enjoy!
