We have finish our all trails edit of Deluxe BMX rider Seb Yates. For this edit we travelled to lots of different trail spots including.. Wisley, Eurocamp, La Poma, Barcelona, John Pound, Leatherhead, and Chertsey.
I mean.. Chase Hawk.. and Joe Simon.. You know its going to be good. beautifully filmed and edited. Feast your eyes!
I think we would all like to go to Pastranaland. Travis Pastrana has so much fun.
Cristian Torres Bonafe with apparently the first Cashroll Tailwhip on dirt. It’s a pretty crazy trick even if you don’t think its a cashroll tailwhip, so much spinning. I had to keep pausing it to see the rotation he was doing. BMX progress is awesome to see in any case!
Meet Kyle Davenport. He honed his skills at the now defunct Ramp Ranch park just outside of Austin, Texas and is now tearing up whatever is in his path. Check out Ride UK magazine #180 for a full interview with Kyle which was shot while filming for this very edit.
Good to see Fids still riding, and from the looks of it Epsom Trails are still looking amazing
Its always good to see some clips from Chris Nunn. Here is a load of raw footage that he had left over, and put together in this nice edit.. pretty good clips to be leftover
Martin rides some fun looking trails at La Poma Bikepark, in this edit for the Drift HD Ghost.. which I have never heard of before, but looks pretty solid.
A nice little preview of what the X Games dirt will look like this year. TJ Ellis does a quick run through the trails
Woah! so much awesome riding in this edit. Even if you only like skateparks this will open your eyes, some huge jumps and big tricks from Jaie Toohey, Cam White & Jed Mildon
I must admit i feel horrible to include this in my Old Fools post series. Not for the fact that it is bad by any means. More to the point that it makes me finally admit to myself that I am getting old.
So far I’ve posted clips from videos that I watched when I “felt” young, Being ripe and ready to get up straight away after falling down. To me even they feel a long time ago. But Etnies “forward” despite it being an old memory still doesn’t feel that old to me. It’s like those stupid posts that people put up on face like “OMG you know you’re old when Jurassic park came out 15 years ago” or some shit. Fuck off. Unfortunately this has become one of those things for me. ETNIES FORWARD came out over 10 years ago now. Fuck.
This video to me is the pinnacle of “mid skool” bmx. Sure, we’ve all got “criminal mischief” and “search and destroy”. Those videos hold ultimate glory on the shelves of any self respecting bmx stunter. Etnies “forward” however brought a whole new level of production to the bmx video world. Super 8mm,16mm film, fancy intro computer type that moved, music edited in time with the music. This put a whole new look into bmx media that i dont think had happened before. Could this be the first big production bmx video? I mean christ, Rooftop back flips over a fucking helicopter for god’s sake. (I am not counting RAD in this ramble)
We all owe Dave Parrick Muchos respect and high regard to his consistency in producing amazing videos. This video had it all, quite possibly the best bmx team in the world at the time, an amazing soundtrack that boasted no grime, “shooting N****s”,”smacking bitches” or nu metal. Diversity was in full effect all round.
I have no idea where i am going with this now but all i can do is leave you with one of the most infamous sections in bmx video history to date. This section is why you know the name RUBEN ALCANTARA. Thanks you Dave Parrick.
