Alex loves to find weird rooftop set ups. I met up with him and Anthony Loconte a few months back while they filmed a few clips on a Sunday evening. Here he found a rooftop wallride set up to roof drop afterward. Alex is probably one of my favorite dudes to watch shred in the Chicago scene. He just does his own thing and it’s so much fun to watch as well as being terrifying at the same time.

Flashback: Codey Levesque by Dakota Roche

Originally posted back in 2012. Good vibes.

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!

The Signs of Austin

I’ve lived in Austin, and I know a lot of you are from there or have at least visited (especially if you ride bikes). One thing I noticed on my first visit was all the great signage. Whether it’s hand painted or big neon, there is cool signage all over town.

I just came across “The Signs of Austin” site, which has illustrations of recognizable signs by Reagan Ray and some facts about each one. It’s pretty rad, go HERE to check it out.

This fantastic symbol that you may have been seeing all over social media is by graphic designer Jean Jullien, and it’s very appropriate right now.

I had the chance to meet and spend a day riding with Robbie Nelson a few months back while on a mission to cruise and shoot with fellow Bone Deth riders Dean Dickinson and Dirt Ron. We rode a few parks, had a session at an amazing pool, and then Robbie ended the day with this roof drop. For those of you that aren’t familiar with him, Robbie is a part of the flow team and obviously earned his stripes by handling set-ups like this without hesitation. It’s always good to see that raw East Coast style that the Bone Deth squad is so well known for be represented out here in California. It’s also not often that riders want to end their day by jumping off rooftops but hey, Robbie does his own thing and isn’t that what this “freestyle” shit is all about in the first place?

2000-20151021-Another1000

We’ve featured Chris Piascik numerous times on the site before, so it only makes sense to let you all know about his new Kickstarter for “Another 1000 Days of Drawing” (as a follow up to “1000 Days of Drawing”). Go HERE for more info. Chris posts daily drawings on his site and Instagram and plans to run a second book of these rad illustrations.

If you anxiously awaited for a new PROPS VHS tape to drop back in the day and then ran to your boys house to watch it asap, then this new collectors edition box set might give you a stiffy up to your earlobes. This box set is full of goodness. Go HERE for all the info and to pre-order.

Also, check out the discs. They feature rad artwork by Eben Fischer and they spell out PROPS (just in case that gets lost on someone).
