On the weekdays the Financial District is a complete bust. It’s packed full of people traffic, and guards who watch the security cameras religiously. But on the weekends it clears out and opens up some of the most well protected parts of the city. Here are some photos of Ed “Wonka” Laforte & I roaming around the neighborhood earlier last week. Check out more photos from this day below.

As we gear up to release the video from Tadashi Nakamura’s stay in San Francsico. I figured now was the time to release some of the remaining photos I took on his last day in town. We did some sight seeing as we explored some of the iconic parts of the city that I knew we hadn’t ventured into yet. We ate lunch in a small garden off the freeway and rode along the shore following whatever road would bring us closer to The Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for Tadashi’s video later this week.

A couple weeks ago I met up w/ Ed “Wonka” Laforte and cruised around San Francisco’s China Town. We wondered up and down the network of alleyways in search of spots that we may have previously overlooked. What Chi town lacks in french fires, it more than makes up for in congested streets riddled with trash & clothes hung out to dry. Ed has been riding his signature frame from Capone Bikes for a little more than a month now and has been going harder than ever on it. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from this day coming soon.

I managed to grab these photos while we were roaming around the city filming for Ramon Antonio’s Welcome to the TURF Mob video. I still can’t believe that he was able to jump up that loading dock as many times as he did. I took on look at it, and knew I didn’t have hops like that. If you haven’t seen his section yet you can check it out HERE or on the TURF website. It’s riddled full of huge double pegs, toboggans, and suicide no handers. Be on the look out for more coming from Ramon now that we ride w/ him nearly everyday of the week. Head over to the THIETH Webstore for more great shirts like this one w/ the Nike swoosh.

I was real stoked to have Tadashi Nakamura come to town and ride with us in San Francisco during the later half of January. For every clip he stacked there was an even more brutal fall. I’ve been piecing together a video from his travels and am in the middle of wrapping everything up and getting it ready to release. Keep your eyes peeled for a new video dropping early next week.
