The Automatically Embeded “FIENDING” Video

Fact. I embeded this without even watching it first and I do so with the utmost confidence. I’m still in my boxers because I got up to post this first thing after checking Instagram in bed. Will proceed with morning rituals then watch.

UPDATE – I’m dead.

Rob DiQuattro edit

This is some of my favorite footage from Rob ever. That means a lot considering I have been riding with him for about 10 years now. He is headed to Scotland soon and I cannot wait to see what he accomplishes there.

Photogallery: X Games Austin

X Games Austin has come and gone, and I must say that I rather enjoyed the new location and setup. It was convenient, easy going and a nice change of pace for X. I got to see some old friends, met some new ones, drank lots of water and acquired a farmers tan.

Click below to check out a gallery of photos I shot from 4 days on the ground and lurking around the place.

Enjoy!

ALYK X ANYTHING Lookbook

Stickers

aNYthing recently worked with BMX crew Act Like You Know. – on a lookbook showing some of aNYthing’s Spring gear, as well as ALYK’s new collection. The lookbook was done to coincide with the release of Act Like You Know’s third DVD – filmed over the last 3 years – and the release of aNYthing’s Spring line. Both are available on respective websites.

aNYthing has always stood for people doing their own thing – and we are pleased to say that the Act Like You Know. crew are part of our family and we fully support their creative endeavors. Since day one, Act Like You Know. has been about creating a way of their own for their friends, building a genuine aesthetic, and doing it all themselves. Using a completely DIY mentality – their 3rd, completely independent, full length BMX video – NO DAYS OFF! – just released on Monday. DVD’s are accompanied with a full-color newsprint zine, made in Queens, NY. The Act Like You Know. clothing was designed with the help of Omens (MSK/Villians), Soviet (NSF), Curve (NSF/ TGE) and Lil Kool. In their 9 year history, Act Like You Know. has accomplished and produced more that most companies with a legit budget, and they show no signs of stopping anytime soon.
