Midway through the Kink House project, Jay mentioned to me that he was going to send a bike to Gabe Brooks. Gabe’s Bank edit had just dropped and we were all pretty psyched on it. We knew Gabe had been through some crazy shit and done a prison bid, so it was cool to see him riding and doing something positive.
Once Gabe got the Kink hook-up, he started coming through the house regularly, and became instant friends with everyone there. I’ve gotten to become good friends with Gabe over the past 6 months, and filming with him is unique, to say the least. His focus on BMX is a constant reminder that riding can be infinitely positive for people, no matter what your background is. The video below was a lot of fun to make, and it’s probably the only time I’ll feel comfortable editing to Tupac. Thanks Gabe!
