Colossal Media are responsible for some amazing large scale hand painted murals, and have been putting up great work for some time. If you frequent this site, you may remember THIS piece. When I caught a glimpse of this Vans mural featuring some classic Dennis McCoy action on their Instagram, I was obviously psyched.
The above image is the mural in progress. Click below to check out the finished mural.
Thanks to Adrian and Paul from Colossal Media for supplying these images.
I’m a sucker for clean video filming/editing and always love me some Toro Y Moi, so here ya go.
Daniel Johnson footage is never a letdown. He puts his pegs to work in this, as usual.
This is a must watch!
… and John Hicks. Enjoyed.
That needle thread.
This that shit right here.
So a few weeks ago I received some issues of 43 Magazine in the mail. These issues weren’t free, I actually sought out to purchase these because I was that excited about a few images I had seen online. This was the first time in my BMX filled life that I felt the need to purchase a skate magazine. 43 Magazine is unlike any other mag that I’ve seen in the action sports world, it has a heightened artistic feel to it and the photography in these is top notch. Looking at them actually got my juices flowing to go shoot riding photos more than some BMX magazines do. I highly recommend you glance at the site or snag some for yourself, if you see them at a local bookstore or steal em’ from any skater buddies you may have. They are definitely a treat for anyone into photography or design.

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!
Next up, Jersey’s own Bob Scerbo.
Even Bob Barker is psyched.
Having learned that David Grant enjoys shooting photos from his recent DIG interview, I decided to hit him up and see if he would be down to contribute an Autophoto. Being a fan of riders who also shoot, I was psyched to know he was down.
Click below to check out David Grant’s Autophoto. All the photos were taken on Canon or Minolta 35mm cameras.
Be sure to follow David Grant on Instagram too.
Does anyone expect anything else but hammers from BK? I don’t think anybody makes gap to rails look as effortless as he does. Guy is just a beast!!!
That post title is specific!
This edit was put together by our friend Matty Lambert and it’s promoting the Red Bull Framed Reactions contest going down in Amsterdam.
Click below for a press release on that.
Speaking of Bobby Simmons, shut up and click below to check out his Defgrip edit from 2011. Still one of my favorites ever.
We’re happy to announce that Chicago based photographer & rider Timothy Burkhart will be joining us here at Defgrip.
We happened to come in contact with Timothy one day, and one thing lead to another. We found that we had similar interests and bringing him on board worked out naturally. Timothy has been a fan of the site for some time, has a BFA in photography/studio art, is currently handling photo duties for The Bakery and carries too many cameras. He knows what we’re about and we look forward to having his posts in the mix.
I wanna hang with Jared Washington.
The Animal team is by far one of my favorite teams to film and travel with, thanks to them I’ve been all over the world. We went to Buenos Aires, Argentina back in March to finish up filming for their upcoming QSS#5 video. In between clocking clips we did a few signings and rode street with hundreds of kids. The scene in Buenos Aires is one of a kind and we were lucky enough to be welcomed into it with enthusiasm. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to travel with the Animal crew, this video is a little taste of the hilarity and good times. Look for the best riding footage from the trip in QSS#5 team video parts.” -Ryan Navazio
QSS#5 features full parts from Tom White, Dave Belcher, Jared Washington, and Steven Hamilton. With appearances from the rest of the Animal squad. Watch it for free, online May 17, 2013.
New location, new setup, Andrew Brady is back in the mix. Feels like the Bakery of old. I Like. I also want a donut now.
Chad Kerley sets it off. Go HERE.
The DIG logo. Anyone who has eyeballed the magazine over the years is familiar with it. A chainring and interlocking hands; it’s pretty classic in my opinion.
Out of nowhere, I glanced at the logo one day (after looking at it for many many years) and all these questions popped into my head about it. What did I do next? You guessed it… harassed DIG Magazine’s Editor-in-Cheif Will Smyth about it.
