In February 2019, Thomas Henderson, Justin Schwanke, and Jesse Baraniuk of the Weird & Revered BMX crew travelled from Canada to Israel to film for their full-length DVD project, Vagabond Squad. The trio road tripped around the country with stops in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Be'er Sheva, Eilat, and the Dead Sea.
Ahhh, the smell of pine, birds singing and the sounds of the camp fire crackling away... Not what you'd expect to experience in the city of Belfast but dig a little deeper and you can find a piece of indoor paradise at The Ramp House skatepark.
It's crazy to see some of the young prodigies we've watched for years now turn into fully fledged destroyers. Felix is rolling in hot off his Simple Session win a few weeks back, and now he releases this street onslaught for Eclat. Never a slow nibble in sight!
Hurting for BMX in print? There's not much left to be honest but DIG have come up with issue 99.99 which is 196 pages thick (their biggest issue yet), has an oversized extra large format and comes with the LUX 'Aeterna' DVD and BOH 2019 Cody Pollard Pull-Out poster. Find the content info below.
DIG 99.99 - a 2019 Photo Journal featuring DIG's highlights of the year, including the DIG HOUSE NYC, the DIG awards, and much more.

Carlos Vinuesa really put himself through the ringer for this one via filmer Gonzalo Caballero. Carlos filmed for this in between working at a bar on a daily basis and also suffered a nasty ankle injury in the process, but damn was it worth it! After nearly two years shot in Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Granada and Salamanca, he can sit back and be proud of this one. End clip is a beast.
Last weekend saw Glasgow's Kelvingrove Skatepark play host to another KGB Jam - watch all the best bits via the VX of local Usman Afzal. Big love to our friend Victor Krsteff - Rest easy. You were such a solid part of the Scottish scene and you will be missed.
Monster Energy's 'LOST IN' series continues this year with a series of trips and we'll be there for each one. First on the cards was Hamburg, Germany with Monster Energy's own Jason Eustathiou, BSD's Greg Layden, insta-legend Jiri Blabol, young TBB-Bike shop fireball Raul Jula and tech wiz Michal Smelko. The trip lived up to the name with some epic pedals with no idea of our route, but sometimes that's the best way. Look out for more in the Lost In series really soon.
