THROWBACK: CODEY LEVESQUE by Dakota Roche

Ran into the homie Codey the other day for the first time in a long time, so here’s a throwback of his rad split skate/BMX video that Dakota Roche put together. Good vibes. Originally dropped in 2012.

We’re proud to finally present you with this Codey Levesque edit, which Dakota Roche graciously put together. Codey and Dak are boys and have been casually working on this for a minute while out having sessions. This is the first edit of its kind that we’ve had for Defgrip, so enjoy!

Photogallery: Dakota Roche by Nick Tellez

Photographer Nick Tellez is someone I learned about through Dakota Roche’s Instagram a little while back. Seems as though he was always shooting with Dak, but wasn’t your usual everyday BMX photographer. Looking at his site and Instagram, I was right. Nick holds it down with rad surf pics, lifestyle, scenic goodness in addition to BMX and skate.

I reached out to Nick about doing something for Defgrip and he was down. I had originally suggested doing a general photogallery with a mix of photos since he shoots a wide range of stuff, but Nick suggested doing something with a Dakota theme. I was totally down for this and thought it was a great idea. We still plan to do another mix gallery later this year too, so keep your eyes peeled.

With that said, click below to check out a rad Dakota Roche gallery by Nick Tellez.
