Whenever Ralphy Ramos makes an appearance, it’s usually solid. Case in point.
I wanna hang with Jared Washington.
The Animal team is by far one of my favorite teams to film and travel with, thanks to them I’ve been all over the world. We went to Buenos Aires, Argentina back in March to finish up filming for their upcoming QSS#5 video. In between clocking clips we did a few signings and rode street with hundreds of kids. The scene in Buenos Aires is one of a kind and we were lucky enough to be welcomed into it with enthusiasm. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to travel with the Animal crew, this video is a little taste of the hilarity and good times. Look for the best riding footage from the trip in QSS#5 team video parts.” -Ryan Navazio
QSS#5 features full parts from Tom White, Dave Belcher, Jared Washington, and Steven Hamilton. With appearances from the rest of the Animal squad. Watch it for free, online May 17, 2013.
I always dreamed of going to Detroit, I don’t know why. It lived up to everything I imagined.

To celebrate the release of Nigel Sylvester’s new G-Shock watch he teamed up with his long time sponsor Animal to produce a limited run of sprockets. Keep reading to check out more photos and info on how you can win one, as well as info about his Europe tour that will kick off at Simple Sessions this weekend. I’m going to be cruising around with Nigel on the tour, so follow me and Nigel on instagram for updates from the trip!
Over the weekend I received an unexpected email from Scerbo containing a new Animal video. What? Yeah! It’s titled “Foreign & Domestic” and proved to be the perfect weekend viewing. Besides making me look cool, I had to mention said email in order to tell you that it’s quintessential Animal/Scerbo and that you should download it now. That’s right, this one is available as a digital download right now.
So… if you’ve got 5 bucks, go HERE.
Bonus info: I watched this with no fucks given about what camera (or cameras) was used.
Growing up in Seattle, the Greenlake trails were hands down the spot that molded me most as a rider and it was the place that I met most of my friends that I still keep in touch with today. Since moving away they built a skatepark right next to the trails… and who would have though that a kid named Mike who rolled up to the trails on a beach cruiser at 12 years old would be having a jam and signing autographs years later at the very spot that got him into BMX.
The jam was part of a little trip that Edwin and Mike Hoder took to ride and chill with the Seattle crew. You can check out all the photos from Animal’s Seattle Jam here.
