The Last Holeshot

Help kickstart the last issue of Holeshot.

To keep our approach fresh, issue 9 will be a box set of zines and materials produced by Holeshot’s main contributors and friends. Since its beginning, Holeshot has generally taken the form of a normal 5.5″x8.5″ zine format. To celebrate the end of the zine though, issue 9 will be a box set of zines and materials from Holeshot’s contributors and friends. Included in each box set will be a multitude of zines, photographs, DVD-R, and BMX ephemera. Our working edition is 250. The end result will be a box that resembles a book that can be shelved. Currently, our contributors and their respective projects are:

Andrew Burton Hyde Pride Zine – Interviews, photos, and more relating the to great skatepark located in Hyde Park, Massachusetts.
Chester Jones – Blazeguard
Kyle Emery-Peck – set of 10 color and black and white 4×6 photographs
Jake Honesto – Bears
Matt Gaspar – Hangn Brain 2 – Holeshot’s funniest contributor. Responsible for the famed Hank Hill bikecheck, Beetlejuice Trail Digger drawing, Evolution of Osiris D3’s article.
Vinny Martin – North Park
Nick Ferreira – TBD
and more to be disclosed

There will be no advertising in Issue 9. Instead we are hoping that our readers and prospective advertisers can help us reach a modest goal of $500 to cover some of printing, packaging, and shipping costs. If you have already subscribed, this issue will be sent to you free of charge. Do not feel obligated to donate, unless of course the spirit moves you. All backers will receive a gift. You can see all of those details at the Kickstarter page.

PRINT: NICK FERREIRA

Nick Ferreira. The dude behind Holeshot zine (R.I.P.) and currently Challenger BMX magazine. He’s been putting out printed BMX goodness for a long time. Knowing this, I started wondering what printed goods get him stoked or inspire him, so I hit him up to find out.

Top 10 finishers get free entry to the screenings, and will be awarded some awesome prizes from Quintin, FBM, Sunday, Terrible One, Dig, Anthem, Act Like You Know, Franchise, Post, and some of BFF’s sponsors including a pizza from Two Boots. Awards will be announced inside the theater (Anthology Film Archives) at 6:00 pm. Be ready to shred!
