The Waffle Jam 2019 - DIG BMX. The Waffle Jam is annual BMX jam hosted by Vans South Africa in the Mother City of Cape Town. This years Jam gave collaboration a whole new meaning with a large amount of DIY. The project was lead by Vans team rider Brandon Blight, who saw potential in a newly repurposed high school swimming pool as the venue for this years event. The pool has been empty for many years and has lost its structural integrity, deeming it unsafe for use as a swimming pool. In recent years, local skate legend Dallas Oberholzer had come to an agreement with Cape Town High School to allow for DIY concrete trannies to but built inside the school, with the end goal of a unique skatepark in mind. The pool is not yet open to the public, aside from one skate event. Brandon and Dallas put their heads together and began to plan what the BMX riders of Cape Town could contribute to this new park. With only a few weeks away from Cape Towns winter settling in, the planning and building began. More trannies were added in the shallow side of the pool for flow, with the intention of leaving deep end un-modified, as many could agree, it was gnarly enough as it stood. Many riders and homies came through with different skill sets to prepare the pool, ramps, school grounds and cater for the event. Luck was on our side and Cape Town showed us her finest colours, resulting in a warm, wind-less day for the jam. Huge shout out to everyone who came thru for that entire week leading up to the jam and picked up a drill, spade or butter knife. See you all at Waffle Jam 3! - Kevin Schnider
Back in February 2018, Thomas Henderson, Jesse Baraniuk, and Justin Schwanke ventured to Panama for a filming trip. Aside from a few days in a beach town called San Carlos, the trio spent most of their time in Panama City. With a small riding scene, intense traffic, and extremely tight security, it soon became apparent that stacking footage would be tough.
If you're looking for something a little bit different in your BMX entertainment search today then this is it. Profile's Cory Foust, Mark Mulville, Luis Pinzon, Bobby Proctor, Chad Degroot and Chris Childs get busy in Tampa with some creative riding and some down right sick looking spots.
"The footage collected was basically from, countless sessions in and around Perth (Australia) city centre, or whatever suburb I was living at the time, we were always searching for obscure setups to ride and secluded places to relax without getting hassled. If someone is down to hold my camera and the spot is chill, I’ll roll up" - REX CUBIC
This past Saturday saw a whole squadron of unidentified flying objects circling Unit 23 Skatepark in Scotland attempting to park up for the Substance Jam. Needless to say, a massive list of earthlings showed up to hold it down for the home planet, including Alex Donnachie, Dan Banks, Sean McGilly, Guy Scroggie, and way more. What a great day! Watch the best bits right here. Supported by BSD, United, and Federal.
You know what time it is. Simple Session 19 is done and dusted, and damn was it a blast! We deployed our AI-operated stealth drones around the stadium and nightclub to see what we could detect - enjoy a bit of the other side of Simple Session.
We sent California's very own bar-ride master Mike 'Hucker' Clark on an adventure to Ecuador to go to the home of the seriously underrated wild stallion that is Jonathan Camacho (a rider we first featured in DIG 96 back in October 2013). Hucker witnessed Jonathan's savagery first hand on the streets, trails and parks of his local stomping grounds, and even got to taste some home-cooked Iguana.
