TURF BIKES | SUNDAZE EP.4

No Comments 35mm, Lifestyle




Given the fact that we shoot most of our stills on 35mm film, the TURF Sundaze posts are always about a week behind. Last Sunday we roamed around Oakland with Egg The Dog, a regular addition to The Mob. He’s either strapped to Mike’s back or running along side us as we lurked from spot to spot. Check out more photos below. Read more

No Comments Screen Shots



We’ve been gearing up for the release of Word Is Bond for quite some time now and have never generated this type of hype for a free online video before. Usually the only videos that have premiere’s are DVD’s, but considering the amount of time we spent making this monumental video, we decided to make an exception. Here’s some screen shots from my section to tide you over until the official release on 04.20.2014. Check out more screen grabs below.

No Comments Events


The day before we release the video for free online, our friends in China are hosting a Word Is Bond video premiere at the Prophet Store in Canton. This is your last chance to see the video before everyone else, so don’t miss out. If you don’t live in China either buy a plane ticket out there or wait like the rest of us.

Christian Hamrick came to our humble island abode to catch clips and kick it w/ us on the West Coast. While he was here, I snapped off this photo of him posted up next to his freshly built Capone Frame. We’ve been talking to the dudes who run Capone in China and are stoked that they’re sending out one of their riders (Frozenmo). Check out some more FGFS stuff coming out of China HERE.

No Comments Screen Shots


As promised here’s some more screen shots from The upcoming Turf Bikes Video, “Word Is Bond”. Ed “Wonka” LaForte’s section is sure to impress considering there’s few people who are willing and able to try some of the tricks Ed does. The official web release is on 4.20.2014 less than 5 days from now. If you missed the last 2 premiere’s then you can still make the one in China going down on April 19th. Otherwise kick back and wait to watch it on the internet just like everybody else. Check out more screen grabs below. Read more

DEVON LAWSON IN THAILAND

No Comments Trips


I was real stoked when I caught glimpse of this photo of Devon Lawson throwing a fully extended Suicide No Hander in Thailand. Jason Sellers came out on the trip and was there to capture it every bit of the way. Check out more photos that popped up on the Us Versus Them Blog Yesterday. Looking like an albatross with that wingspan. Photo Credit : Jason Sellers

DEVON LAWSON | FINAL HOURS

2 Comments 35mm, Lifestyle, Trips



These are the last photos I took of Devon Lawson on American soil before he flew overseas on a trip to Thailand. He’s been spending time w/ Jaoa Danaikrit (the only international member of the Wheel Talk Team), Dew Sippawit, and the rest of the Fixed Freestyle scene out there before he heads back to the states in time for the 2014 Red Bull Ride & Style. If you haven’t heard that Red Bull Ride & Style is coming back to San Francisco, then you probably live under a rock. Everybody and their mother has been posting about it, and it looks like it’s going to be a riot as always. So mark your calender and I’ll see you there. Photo Credit : Matt Reyes 35mm

HAMBONE | SCREEN SHOTS

No Comments Screen Shots



Christian Hamrick collected clips for the Turf BikesWord Is Bond” Video while he was on the Coast to Ghost Trip and during a short visit he made to the West Coast. Hambone is currently living in Kansas City, a place which I’m told has unreal street spots. We might just have to make a trip out there to investigate these so called spots. If you live near San Jose, come out to the premiere being held at iMiNUSD on Saturday April 12th. We’re going to meet up and ride earlier during the day and then head to ID doors open at 7:30. Be there or be square. Circles only, no invite, all ages are welcome. Check out more screen shots below.
