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.
…we posted this mighty fine Nike In Argentina video. Get reacquainted.
Just got around to eyeballing this EYELAND video. Eyeballs are not disappointed.

This goes out to Steve Crandall. Shoutout to 1986.
Sometimes its the un-hyped little projects that come out of nowhere that are the most enjoyable. Such is the case with the video above. Clint Reynolds hooked me up with a hand stenciled copy he had just burned on his computer around New Years and I was pleasantly surprised.
This easy going collection of bad-assery is a must for any trail dudes out there, or fans of good BMX fun. The Credence dudes are awesome. Click below for a teaser they just released and search this out at bike shops.
Fact. I embeded this without even watching it first and I do so with the utmost confidence. I’m still in my boxers because I got up to post this first thing after checking Instagram in bed. Will proceed with morning rituals then watch.
UPDATE – I’m dead.
Did you know that The Gonz rides a Sunday cruiser spot to spot to skate New York City? Me either. Press play on the video above and take a look at one of skateboarding’s pioneers launching off garbage piles, doing skids, and bunnyhopping off curbs, all with a skateboard stuck to his bars.
All of Mutiny’s individual Cool Story Bro pieces have led up to this final video. 17 minutes of Mutiny action featuring Robbo, Matt Roe, Josh Bedford, Justin Simpson, Brandon Hoerres, Grant Castelluzzo and more.
Sit back, relax and get into it.
LOOK. AT. THOSE. GRAPHICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's all fun and games until a dog grabs your leg.
Every once in a while it’s good to go into a new BMX video with no preconceived notions. Often times you have a certain level of expectation with any project, especially if the brand/crew/riders are super well known. I went into the Chocolate Truck video with pure curiosity. It was almost like getting a random album and hoping for the best.
I knew this video would be street based (East Coast style), but that’s about it. I know very little about the crew. I had seen some positive chatter through social media about the video, so it stayed on my radar. By chance, I happened to fall in contact with Matt Miller recently and he offered to send me a copy of his video. I love when shit works out.
Long story short, I watched this video front to back and loved it after the first go. It was easy and fun to watch. Chocolate Truck is a video that doesn’t take itself too serious, but isn’t a joke either. Far from it. It feels exactly like if you and your friends filmed your sessions and put out a video, only with better riding and some production know-how. Speaking of, a huge thank you to Matt Miller (and company) for choosing a brave/eclectic/smart soundtrack. I’m sure this video could have been drenched in modern rap music (pardon the cliche), but it’s not. The final outcome gives it a more timeless quality in my eyes. I love being surprised by music selection and this video kept me on my toes. Cheers for that!
I never set out to write video reviews (or whatever you would call this post), but all this came natural. Solid video right here, put out by everyday riders.
People will be pissed. People will be psyched. I think I’m psyched. Fuck a Vine.

Late night internet binging lead me to hear about and naturally watch Jackson Casey’s Boyish video. The filming is great, the editing is perfect, and the aesthetic/visuals are eclectic yet consistent from beginning to end. If you’re into Jackson’s style, he made a pretty awesome follow up to it called Worship Friendship that you can take a look at on his YouTube channel…or pick up a copy of the DVD on their website.
