At the Simple Session 16 event Daniel Dhers and Nick Bruce won the special 'Visit Estonia' prize for the best tricks performed on the 'Visit Estonia' Estonian flag quarterpipe. The prize was a full on week long adventure trip around Estonia with tasty local cuisine, fancy hotels and spas, helicopter rides, escape room and disc golf, underground mine visits, off-road jeep rides and of course shredding at Nate Wessel designed and 'Visit Estonia' funded Spot of Tallinn action sport complex. So the adventure was on, the guys flew over to Estonia this November and they had a blast! Here Daniel and Nick are checking in midway on the trip and telling you what's up.
James Dean and I bought one way flights to Africa and saw some crazy shit. Donkeys eating out of trash cans, camels roaming the desert, Ramadan, octopus sandwiches, BMX, and then some. This is just the start of our adventure. More soon.
Calvin Kosovich takes some time out of his busy schedule to inundate you with tips, pointers, and philosophies of the nollie. The nollie is an extremely versatile trick and as Calvin points out, once you've got some nollie pop it can actually be a game changer.. Down drops, into rails, fakie onto ledges, over things; the nollie will be there for you through thick and thin.
First session back at Abbotsford Indoor BMX with the crew! Make sure to inform me of any things you would like to see differently or what you would like to see filmed next! (Ps. I promise the next video wont be filled just on my GoPro haha).
Epic week this week! Flew out to Tulsa, OK for the USA BMX Grand Nationals. Didnt have the greatest weekend racing. Then flew back to San Diego to kick it with the homies Derik Bergh and Alex Cazares! So keen for the rest of the week! Stay tuned!
Tom Dugan, Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara spent two weeks in Ruben's hometown of Malaga, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal while filming in the 11th hour for the new etnies full-length video "Chapters". Here's a behind the scenes look at what went down in between the wild moves collected. Huge thanks to etnies BMX.
Nothing will truly articulate the joy my bike has brought me. Countless lessons and moments that have made me who I am, and given me the family around me. Incredibly thankful for all of you. Thanks for picking up a camera, riding shady spots, talking shit, helping me up, bringing the hype, being dry, being nerds, being motivated and most of all letting me film and edit.
