Will Stroud’s Favorite Video Parts

Will Stroud has been putting in work behind a video camera for many years now. He’s a staple in our scene and an absolute professional. I know because I’ve dealt with him first hand. He even provided me with direct links to each video part for this feature for crying out loud. Professional.

Anyway, instead of picking Will’s brain about video cameras and videography, I decided to find out what some of his all time favorite BMX videos & video parts are from a fan/viewer standpoint.

Q&A: Figuré BMX Magazine

A few weeks ago, I was emailed a teaser for a new free French magazine called Figuré BMX Mag. It was labeled “Teaser 1” which led me to believe there were more to follow. I didn’t post any, hoping I’d be able to clump them all together in a nice package with a Q&A.

Voilà!!! (thats French for “ta-da” more or less)

I reached out to Fabien with a few questions. Click below for that.

Scrapbook 2011: Nuno Oliveira

Just like last year, I saved up a bunch of my photos to put together a little year end “scrapbook”.

These photos are from various travels and days out and about. I’m always carrying a camera, so there’s a good mix of BMX and assorted randomness in here. Some photos are from previous galleries, but a whole lot more are brand new.

Thanks to anyone who let me snap a pic.

Enjoy!

United “Downtime” Video

Bored from eating too much fruit cake and listening to Aunt Gertrude?? United have you covered. Sit back and enjoy!!

Between mid January and the end of June 2011, following the release of our most recent full length DVD ‘This Is United’, we rented a small vacation apartment in Huntington Beach.

During this time, team riders from our pro, am and world teams flew out to visit, ride, relax, film some clips and soak up some of that Californian lifestyle.

Featuring: Nathan Williams, Ryan Lloyd, Corey Martinez. Alex Valentino, Ashley Charles, Ryan Metro, Luke Peeters, Geoff Slattery, Roy Van Kempen, Dan Boiski, Jimmy Rushmore, Christian Rigal, Kye Forte, Leo Forte & Dean Hearne.

Photogallery: Rebel Jam 2011

I just returned from a trip to the Netherlands where the world-renowned Vans Rebel Jam went down. It was held in the city of Eindhoven, which is about an hour and change from Amsterdam. This was my first time to this part of the world and from what I could tell, it is a beautiful country.

Rebel Jam is one of those contests that you always hear good things about, so I was more than happy to accept the invitation to come over and cover it for Defgrip. This was my first ever Rebel Jam, and it did not disappoint. From accommodations to the actual event, it all went down as smooth as my eyes could tell. Barring any jet lag or “zombie mode” scenarios, it was a good time. Also, it’s always good when you can make riding history at an event, and Rebel Jam did that.

Thanks to Andy Zeiss and all the Vans staff for a great experience.

Dominik Wrobel is cooking up an edit for us, so check back soon for that.

Be sure to check out Ride BMX, DIG, Ride UK and Rebel Jam sites for action shots, results and more.

Videos 2010

After watching Anthem 2, it dawned on me that 2010 was pretty awesome for legit BMX video projects.

There was definitely a time when the fate of videos was in question due to the internet, but this year proved different. A company might not sell as many videos as it once would, but good DVD’s are still sought after, well received and I thank brands for continuing to put in the work.

Below, I go over a few videos that stood out for me this year. This is not a be all end all, year end best of videos post (I haven’t seen everything), but just an overview of some notable ones. They are not listed in any particular order.

Feel free to add your input/feedback in the comments.
