On the strength of Jared Souney’s Tweets, I will most likely hit up Sweetpea Bakery whenever I visit Portland. I will also one day coax him out of his Contax T2, haha…

While we are on the topic, Jared has just re-launched his portfolio site which is nice, clean and fun to look around. Photography and design work aplenty!

Check it out HERE.

Trailer: You Won’t (100 Pools Book)

A trailer for a book? You bet, it’s 2011!!!!! Here’s one for Dean’s 100 Pools book. This has been a long time in the making, can’t wait to see it.

Dean Dickinson has broken his body, his bike, his bank account, and various laws in a quest to reach his personal goal of riding 100 pools. The title of his book—YOU WON’T—is a challenge laid down by some of Dean’s doubters. The reality is—Dean did it, and this project documents it all.

10 years of poached and permission pools are captured with hundreds of amazing images from iconic BMX photographers—Jared Souney, Justin Kosman, Jeff Zielinski, Ryan Fudger, Shad Johnson, and more. The stories pack 20 chapters and 200 pages. Eyewitness accounts with riders include such as Dakota Roche, Mike Tokumoto, Sean “Fish” Hoskins, Spencer and Austin McCabe, Chester Blacksmith, Brian Martyn, Kurt Rasmussen and countless others. Dean’s journey culminates with an epic session with all his friends at the iconic Pink Motel pool. The editorial team on the project includes Dickinson, Jared Souney, Mike Daily, and Mark Lewman. Presented by TEAM SHRALP. Dedicated to James Schiefelbein. Book coming soon!

Aaron Draplin Interview

Jared Souney recently produced this video of esteemed graphic designer Aaron Draplin for YoBeat Magazine and it’s must see. Though he primarily talks about snowboarding through part one of this two part feature, there are some interesting parallels between the two industries and Draplin’s colorful personality keeps it entertaining the whole way though.

Mt. Baldy T-Shirt


“No logos or brand name bullshit on this one.

nine-ninety bmx magazine zine

Jared Souney just posted a PDF of a one-off magazine that he put together with Brian Tunney sometime around 1998 titled Nine-Ninety. It’s pretty crazy to check out all the photos and see how many dudes are not riding any more or they are just people I’ve never heard of. I wonder if one day, we are going to be re-publishing our blogs and reminiscing about how rad websites were like how people talk about zines today… hmmm…..

Check out Souney and Tunney’s magazine here.
