Oakley / Chase Hawk

We went out to Austin, TX over the summer with Oakley to hang out, film, shoot photos with Chase Hawk, and put together some features on Defgrip to introduce him to the Oakley team. During our weekend in Austin, we just chilled, rode, swam, partied, and brought the camera with us every where we went. During the shoot, Chase was riding a custom built Cult frame, built up with Odyssey products, and some custom Oakley graphics. The bike was on display at Interbike and will be traveling around showing up a different trade shows and events for the next few months.

Keep reading to check out the video and check back in a week or so for a full photogallery of Chase!

My buddy Tim approached me like 1.5 years ago to create a cool looking bike to display at his shop UNIV in Encinitas. I made very lazy progress, enlisting the help of friends whenever the thought crossed my mind… a seat cover here, a headtube badge there, until we were done. All my favorite companies contributed (see who after the jump) among which was our friend Matt at The Laboratory who handcrafted a multi-layered textured paint finish that looks exactly like something that just spent a few decades at the bottom of the ocean.

In the end though, it’s just a BMX bike so Jim and I took a morning drive down to UNIV to test it out on the world’s smallest quarterpipe. Click below to see all the photos and read UNIV’s press release.

Aaron Ross X Odyssey X Etnies

There’s been some info out and about in regards to Aaron Ross’ signature Etnies shoe colab with Odyssey, but Odyssey just threw up a photo book on their site with a bunch of photos of the shoe. I can’t decide if the footbed or the speckled are my favorite part of the shoe, but I am stoked they stayed true to the Aaron Ross color pallet. You can keep reading for a few photos of the shoe and check out the full flipbook on the Odyssey site.

Tom Perry Edit


San Diego’s “Ohio” Tom Perry has a rad edit on the Odyssey site… He’s got some great clips throughout the edit, but the first manual to 180 has been stuck in my head for hours… Big thanks to Josh Hayes for the above photo, as well as the bonus pic after the jump.
