Roy Van Kempen and assorted Orange Juice affiliates traveled to Spain for some good times on the BMX. Click below to check out some pics and check back soon for the video.

After the big success of the Orange Juice x Vans Barcelona trip in 2013 we decided, together with Vans, to organize another trip in 2014.

For this trip, we decided to go to Malaga for 9 days with a group of riders from Belgium and Holland. The Belgium riders joining the trip were Kenzo de Witte, riding for Vans and Thijs Vervaeck who owns a BMX shop in Gent, Belgium called ‘The Bridge’. The Dutch riders consisted of Vans rider Mark Vos, Orange Juice supporter Jorn Tuijnman and Orange Juice co-owner Roy Van Kempen. Our film crew was made up of co-owner from Orange Juice Tom Lammerse and Daan van Citters. Last but not least, Syo van Vliet was there as a photographer.

Having 8 of your best friends on a trip is definitely the best. The overall vibes on the trip were amazing; we made dinner for eachother, had plenty of laughs, drank beers, gambled and shot some crazy clips. Words can’t explain how good this trip was but the pictures and video will definitely give you a taste of what the 2014 Malaga trip was like.

Photogallery / Video – Frenchy’s Meeting V4

Our boys out of France are back with another Frenchy’s Meeting. Frenchy’s is a distro out of France (duh) and they make it a habit to get their team out there and record the action. Sit back and watch Nico Badet, Joris Coulomb, Matthias Dandois, Maxime Charveron, Alex Valentino, Adrien Lecomte, Anthony Perrin, John Garcia and Ben Gea do their thing.

In addition, Lilian Conry was nice enough to contribute some photos from the trip:

It’s been 4 years since we have a crew meeting every summer. The idea was to spend great time together because we are really good buddies in life. Every trip, every year, the atmosphere is awesome, It’s a hell of a week, it became a meeting that we all expect.

This is also an opportunity to shoot pics for our new catalog and edit a video. This year we decided to make the trip in the north east of France. Where I was born and raised! Matthias Dandois, Max Charveron, Alex Valentino, Nicolas Badet, Anthony Perrin, Adrien Lecomte, Ben Gea, John Garcia and Joris Coulomb have well exploited the area. A mix of street, park, trail, cow, meadow and haystack!

I shot these pictures with my old dad’s film camera… A Nikkormat.

SpaceTrippin SF

We’re psyched to premiere this feel good casual road trip video that Hoang Tran put together. It features riding from Hoang, Tom Perry and their boy Dylan along with all the fun stuff in between. This song will most likely be stuck in my head all day too.

From Hoang:

This little trip I took with my friends Tom and Dylan was nothing more than an excuse to get out of town for a couple of days. We barely did any planning for this trip beside figuring out some key destinations. We decided to take a roadtrip up to San Francisco and do some camping along the way. There are two main interstates you can take to get to San Fransisco from San Diego. The fastest route, that’s up the 5 which takes about 7 hours with no stops, or you can take the 1 (Coast Hwy) which takes 10+ hours but filled with incredible views. For us, it was going to be about making good time, but for us now this is measured with the emphasis on “Good” rather than “time” and when you make the shift in emphasis the whole approach changes. So we went up the 1. The rest of the trip was based around this motto and many good times were had.

This video showcases some of the experiences on the way up and our short stay in San Francisco. Thanks to Tom for doing all the animation and helping with the filming; Erin Barker for her photography and letting us crash at her freshman college dormitory that housed a group named the sexy six…,Dylan for partying with the sexy six to levels of panty incineration.
