Waiting Out Winter

A new one from Andrew David Watson, a feel-good piece with some great time lapse footage, dedicated to everyone who’s freezing right now.

PETROL-FOOD-BEER

Fraser Byrne sent over this rad film. “We just finished up this wee vid I thought you might appreciate. Although its not ‘bmx’ its in the spirit of DIY, cheap living adventure that I think most BMXers can relate to. The vid is based on a guy called Austin Vince who rode around the world (by the longest route possible) on DR350 dirt bikes with 8 mates. Pretty epic trip to say the least.”

CRD Motorcycles

I don’t know anything about motorcycles and have actually never riden one in my entire life… But I do know when something looks good. I’ve been having a lot of fun digging through the CRD website checking out all their custom bikes dreaming of what I would do if I had my own bike.

Adam Craver

Handmade Portraits: Liberty Vintage Motorcycles from Etsy on Vimeo.

Adam Craver is an old school dude with a motorcycle shop in Philadelphia. This is an inspiring video of him talking about his bikes, his independent shop, the appeal of vintage stuff, the fulfillment you get from working with your hands, and his concern that America is heading away from these things.

This guy oozes true non-contrived east-coast personality and emotion. Four minutes twenty seconds, well worth it.

Slo-mo MotoGP

Devour has turned into one of my favorite places to waste time… If you haven’t checked it out, it’s basically just a random collection of dope/funny/crazy videos. For some reason, it took me about five times of visiting the site to actually click on this video, but this Slo-mo MotoGP video is CRAZY. The video was put together by Red Bull and it features MotoGP champion Casey Stoner. All you need to do is look at the screen shot above and think 1000 frames per second. Watch Now.

Max Schaaf on Skatebook.TV

schaaf

For those who don’t know, Max Schaaf is a badass long-time skateboard pro who also builds baddass motorcycles in his shop in the Bay Area. I’ve always thought he was cool because he was one of the few action sports atheletes who had it together enough at a young enough age to want to do other things with his life, yet his style was so authentic that he stayed relevant in skating without having to kill himself on a skateboard well into his thirties, or even compete at all.

He still rides for Real, Fourstar, and just released this baddass Vans Syndicate shoe which is one of the best recent Vans models period.

Watch this quick Max Schaaf feature on Skatebook.tv right here.
