Michael "Big Island" Castillo has got a new project for 2009. It's called "Nui Art Projects" or "n.a.p.". "Nui" which means "big" in Hawaiian, what most of his brothers and sisters in the bike/skate/tattoo families have opted to call him. Mike explains: "It will be based out here on the beautiful island of Oahu. I will be doing projects with my worldwide families. Not only will there be a clothing line for men and women, but projects in all different avenues. I will also be helping others with designs/projects in their respected endeavors. I will be posting updates on Hawaii's Shoots Brah! crew site" Keep an eye open, cuz it's n.a.p. time. Shoots and Mahalo. Nui Art Projects.

Timo Pritzel runs his own clothing company and has a new T-shirt out with strong BMX roots. You actually should try to name all the brands in there before you check the next page to see the solution. Wait, don't click yet, try a little harder. There are over 10 brands involved so don't think you've got it when you discover parts of three old BMX company logos. Next to this design we will show you two more on the next page. The company is based in Berlin, Germany if you were wondering and the shirts will be available via a webshop on the Atmosfair site soon. Got all the companies on a list?

Loving bmx is a way of life that controls your body and mind with a strange and weird force that comes from somewhere outside or inside ourselves! Photo:Nikos Kalianis Art by: Swtiris Kapsas
