Thank you internetz.

We’re proud to finally present you with this Codey Levesque edit, which Dakota Roche graciously put together. Codey and Dak are boys and have been casually working on this for a minute while out having sessions. This is the first edit of its kind that we’ve had for Defgrip, so enjoy!
I already knew that Kriss Kyle was damn good at bikes, but this video really blew me away. Some great coaster stuff in here.
Sit back and watch The Finer Things in its entirety. From the consistent kaleidoscope effect/theme to the riding and the filming, I’m a big fan of this project. Shouts to Mastroni and crew.
During Mike Mastroni’s worthwhile TCU podcast, they referenced the video above quite a bit. We posted this video that Mike (mostly) self filmed back in 2009, so I figured a flashback was in order.
A lot of interesting info can come out of a lengthy project like this, so I hit up the Shadow crew for some assorted random facts about the video and its making. Click below to check out some assorted facts courtesy of Chadwick (Shadow TM).
Can’t wait to find out. Full length coming in August (2015).
Shouts to Gutstains and his Defgrip tee in this.
Some new visuals from the Antidote crew to hold you over ’til the video drops. Also, Nathan Williams.
Daily Operation dropped on this date in 1992. Take It Personal is still one of the best Premo joints ever.
Let’s take it back to 2011 and the “Welcome Back Edit” that Christian contributed to the grip.
After being broken and collecting dust for the last 3 years, I finally got my VX fixed and decided to make a ‘Welcome Back Edit’ with my friends. Featuring Chad Kerley, Dennis Enarson, Connor Lodes, Ronnie Napolitan, Billy Macpherson, Mike Jonas, Devon Smillie and Big Kenny Enarson. Enjoy my friends!
Let’s take it back a year or so ago to this video that Hoang Tran made. Good vibes.
This little trip I took with my friends Tom and Dylan was nothing more than an excuse to get out of town for a couple of days. We barely did any planning for this trip beside figuring out some key destinations. We decided to take a roadtrip up to San Francisco and do some camping along the way. There are two main interstates you can take to get to San Fransisco from San Diego. The fastest route, that’s up the 5 which takes about 7 hours with no stops, or you can take the 1 (Coast Hwy) which takes 10+ hours but filled with incredible views. For us, it was going to be about making good time, but for us now this is measured with the emphasis on “Good” rather than “time” and when you make the shift in emphasis the whole approach changes. So we went up the 1…
The rest of the trip was based around this motto and many good times were had. This video showcases some of the experiences on the way up and our short stay in San Francisco. Thanks to Tom for doing all the animation and helping with the filming; Erin Barker for her photography and letting us crash at her freshman college dormitory that housed a group named the sexy six…,Dylan for partying the sexy six to levels of panty incineration.
