I guess I’m pretty biased, but Trent fucking slays it!!!! This new edit is precedent to that. Trent makes so much stuff look too damn easy…it’s not fair.
I thought I knew what I could expect from this video from seeing some of the container/ramp pics, but that last clip completely shocked me and had me feeling the fear, haha. Shouts to Drew Bezanson for that one.

I had the opportunity to ride and film with Steven while I lived in Columbus. Here is some of the stuff we captured before I moved.
A lot of interesting info can come out of a lengthy project like this, so I hit up the Shadow crew for some assorted random facts about the video and its making. Click below to check out some assorted facts courtesy of Chadwick (Shadow TM).
Here is the first section from the Ambipegstreetest DVD that was released this year.
Anthony Loconte, nosepick to fakie.
Shot October 2006: I had a bunch of expired film from my old boss in Chicago so I was shooting as much of it as I could. I believe this was the Shakey’s pool in LA and Brian Martin was always down to ride pools with Dean an Kurt. At that time I was in Huntington and riding with those guys as much as we could, weekends and nights. Brian was a private investigator and later moved to Hawaii.
If I had to guess this was Ilford 400 film on a Canon 1N body triggered with Pocket Wizard cables. Since this was 2006 I had probably eaten a tuna sandwich from the nearest 7-11 within minutes of this photo being taken.
If you recall staying up all cot damn hours of the night recording stuff off Stretch and Bob’s show in NYC, then you probably look forward to this film like I do.
The film is finished and they’re trying to release it independently.Hit up their Kickstarter if you wish to get involved.
Click below for their Kickstarter video for a good glimpse at the project.
…helping keep real street riding alive.
…aka fuck yeah, Dak!
Some quick Chocolate Truck crew action to hold you over before their 2nd DVD drops. Loved the first one.
We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

It’s no secret that Chicago got a new skatepark in the heart of the city at Grant Park. Dew Tour invaded it a month or so ago and I’m sure there will be more jams and contests held there in the future. My work schedule leaves me to mainly be getting in some early morning sessions and I have been meeting up with some of the dudes here in the city to get some morning coffee and bmx in before we start our normal day. I felt this would be a great place to share some photos for an ongoing pseudo series that I’ve been shooting with some of the dudes here in the city, some known and some unknown.

Endless Mag sprung up out of nowhere in the wake of Ride UK’s print demise. It seemed like support was instant for the new venture. While the first issue is still yet to come out, Eisa has been busy on the road keeping the Endless Instagram active, dropping features on the site and presumably gathering content for issue 1.
I hit up Eisa Bakos to throw some questions his way regarding Endless. Click below!
