Photogallery: Trippin Thru Europe


Nigel Sylvester just released his second signature watch with G-Shock and to kick off the launch, Nigel put together a quick tour through Europe, properly titled #Trippinthrueurope. The plan was to start in Tallinn Estonia at Simple Session, then head to London for a few days, from London to Paris, then spend the last weekend in Warsaw, Poland.

The trip consisted of Nigel, his manager Hawaii Mike and myself. The whole thing went by super fast and I’m not sure if we slept for more than three hours each night. We really tried to cram as much in as possible and even though we barely had any time to ride, we had a really great time. Huge thanks to everyone we got to meet up with on the trip and hopefully I’ll get to go back to all of these cities again and spend more time exploring and seeing everyone.

The photos in the gallery are in no particular order. I was filming most of the time and I didn’t get to shoot as many photos as I would have liked, but I did manage to capture a few moments. I shot the most in Warsaw when we spent the day walking around the city. It’s so crazy to me that the entire city of Warsaw was completely destroyed in World War II. So tragic.

Hope you enjoy the photos and keep an eye out for a video from the trip. Big thanks to Nigel and Hawaii Mike for such a great trip!


You sound like you’re from London…

That’s the first thing I thought when I got the email about this Mutiny in London edit. If you’ve seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall, than you know what I’m on about.

Anyway, check out Josh Bedford, George Boyd, Sean O Connell, Robbo and Matt Roe in London. Put together by Richard Forne.

Proper City Series – London

South London is littered with ‘council estates’ (or social housing). We spent a month exploring these estates with Shaun Jinks, Rory Duncan, Janis Cunculis, Jamie Guile, Dan Figg, Max Wood (aka Peter Prang), Radek Dźwigała, Ben Marvin, and Shaun Jinks. Tonash Goodyear filmed and edited the results. Also thanks to Mateusz Kanownik and Chris Gordon.

Somewhere in the mix London was blighted with riots. If the move to demolish these estates wasn’t a rush before the riots it certainly will be now.

Photogallery: Carhartt Dub Jam 2010

George Marshall hooked up some photos from last weeks Carhartt Dub Jam in London.

According to George:

About 500+ riders turned up from all around the UK and we spent a day in West London dodging the rain and getting chased by the police.

We Are Build

Build, the London based design studio of Michael C. Place has updated with a new website and a bunch of new work. Build has been one of my favorite designers for years and I always enjoy digging through his work.

Mind Design is an independent design studio out of London. I’m really digging the patterns and colors the use in their identity work. (via It’s Nice That)


Wieden + Kenedy London Offices


Architecture blog Dezeen posted some photos and info about the new London offices for one of Defgrip’s favorite design firms Wieden + Kennedy. Featherstone Yong, a London studio is responsible for the project in which they re-vamped an old brewery across the street from the old Wieden + Kennedy London offices. “utilizing the height of the existing shell to create a series of mezzanines and crows’ nests for creative contemplation. These mezzanines allow for visual connection between larger workspaces and more intimate ones”

Rad Rides The Best of BMX Book

rad rides best of bmx book

Inercity, the London based design studio and authors of Art & Sole, are working on a BMX book that will showcase all types of BMX bikes.

“Rad Rides: The Best of BMX (working title) looks to explore the world of BMX through photographs of bikes and Q&As with their owners. Some of the bikes are knackered, well worn by owners that have been riding for years. Others are beautiful, sculptural works of art, built but never ridden as a keepsake. Why are these bikes so sacred to their owners? What do these BMX riders do for a living? Where do they ride their bikes? What is it about the BMX that appeals to them? Is their bike a classic production bike or is it a custom build?”

They have an open call for entries going on until October 2009, so if you have a bike you’d like to submit, click here to download the call for entries PDF. To get an idea of what the book will be like, check out a few images from Art & Sole after the jump.

I stumbled upon the Wednesday blog via the Deluxe site, and spent a good amount of time looking through the posts.

Wednesday seems to be a rad scene (London) website, with other goodness thrown in. The page is also pleasing to the eyes. Check it out HERE.

Also, click below for the “Digging Days” Barend trails video. It documents the locals getting the trails in order and working everything in. Definitely reminds me of coming out of winter and into spring.
