Are you new to Defgrip? Just started checking the site over the last year or 2? Well, time to catch up on some sweet original content our crew have produced. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, there’s no harm in revisiting these again. Either way, we appreciate ya.

Harrison Boyce and Andrew McMullen have sat down with some interesting BMX & NON-BMX characters for video interviews starting back in 2008. These interviews were pretty different for BMX at the time and I think they did a good job at connecting you with these people (I didn’t produce them so I can say that, ha). Subjects include Ruben Alcantara, Cory Nastazio (probably the most talked about Original), Greyboy, The History of Oakley and much much much more…

I’m convinced that the world is a better place because we have Jeff Z photos. That’s pretty much some sort of scientifically proven fact and shit. With that said, Jeff has re-launched his site with tons of stuff to look at. Eyeball the site HERE.

For more Z, check out the great Autophoto he put together for us in 2010. Also, R.I.P. to the Volvo.

Jeff Z Action Photos


Jeff Z has a selection of rad action photos up on the Ride site including a bunch of great medium format stuff. You can see all the photos here and keep reading to check out a few shots.


Jeff Z Point and Shoot


When I posted about point and shoot cameras last week, a lot of people brought up the Olympus Stylus Epic as a good option to a Contax T2 or a Yashica T4. Yesterday, Jeff Z posted a rad post on his blog in the Ride site with a bunch of photos he shot with an Olympus Stylus Epic. I guess he got his for $5 on Craigslist, which is crazy because they were going for like $50+ on ebay! Most of the photos I’ve seen from Jeff have been more staged shots with his SLR’s or medium format cameras, so it’s rad to see more candid stuff from him. Hopefully he posts more p&s stuff, cus these photos are rad!

Check a bunch of photos on is blog here.

Defgrip Original – Jeff Z




Last night’s Nike art show/party went off pretty well. Cool space, some cool number plates, a bunch of rad people in the house and complimentary drinks and candy.

I went with the intentions of taking some photos for this site, but quickly abandoned that plan due to a combination of catching up with people and forgetting about it. Luckily, the magazine guys and other media dudes were on hand to snap some photos.

Check out some photos on the Ride site HERE.

Yeah I used a photo with myself in it for this post, so what?? Impromptu beard gathering by Jeff Z. Hahaha.
