Monthly Manic - February 2017. Hello! This is the first installment of a video series I hope to do every month. All of the footage in these videos are all filmed on iPhones as well as edited with IMovie on the iPhone.
FEBUARY: The majority of this video are locals from around North Carolina where I live. I travel around a lot doing bmx shows so a lot of my footage is scattered from all over. To wrap things up I was in Atlanta for the Toyota triples contest and watched some guys drop some heavy bangers. Hope you all enjoy! Like, subscribe, and all that jazz.
You know how up-and-coming riders generally have one video that separates them from the thousands of shredders all over the world? This is Matt Ray's. Amazing street and park clips from a recent trip to North Carolina... Take notice!
Riding outdoors during winter months in Wisconsin is very difficult. Luckily, there are skateparks like Four Seasons in Milwaukee which provide a sanctuary for riders in the Midwest. Brandon Schill is a Four Seasons local. I caught up with him for a couple sessions during January and February and captured some of his smooth, effortless riding. The song in the video is called Vain Village by Xavier Wulf.
LFS X BREAKING FREE SKATEPARK. The LFS crew took a trip to Breaking Free Skatepark a couple weeks back to visit ol' pal Dave Raffa. Featuring Alex Avilla, Doroba, Jeff With Glasses, Steve Blasi, Tyler Styles, Raffa, Nate Stahura, and Mikey Almodovar.
Low Profile - Leon Hoppe. Leon Hoppe is part of a new generation of highly progressive German riders who grew up in the web video era. Being constantly bombarded with daily injections of fresh BMX riding via the Internet, there is almost no trick that these guys hadn’t seen in a video, studied, learnt and then mastered over the course of a week, hungry for their next assignment on the Monday. Germany's highly active and tight knit scene has taught Leon that hard work pays off, and over the past three years since, we've seen Leon transform from that unknown “really good kid”, to one of the most dialed riders out there right now. With an uncharacteristically dry sense of humor (for a German), and an incredibly positive outlook on riding, Leon is one to look out for in the future.

Sometimes you immediately know when a rider has something special, the first time I witnessed Corey pedaling full speed at a gap with power and full commitment I about shit myself...Watch this edit and you will feel the same...
