With public transportation reigning supreme in the Bay Area, it’s rare that we ride anywhere that isn’t within range of the bus, bart, train, ferry, or riding to the spot. It’s always great having Dave Beard come out to take behind the scenes photos when we go out to ride. This day was the first time I did a tooth hangover down a handrail or 360 over gap with a fatal drop. After a successful day of being guided from spot to spot by Ramon Antonio, we wrapped up the day by hitting the Vallejo Skatepark before we headed home. Check out more photos from our trip to Vallejo HERE.

Mike T. Schmitt’s bike was out of commission most of the day, but that didn’t stop him from riding the bowl at the local skatepark and catching these two photos. Mike is the only person I see attempting handplants on a regular basis, and has been doing so for years. Check out more photos from our trip to Vallejo HERE.

Ramon Antonio III - Vallejo 2014 - Clip Review
With Bart only running as far north as Richmond, we needed alternate transportation to make the trek to ride street spots in Vallejo. Ramon Antonio III came through w/ the Rack Solid Van, making it possible for this trip to happen. I’ve never seen Ramon ride as hard as he did that day, catching clips on every rail spot we went to. Double peg up & down to cab, Xup over the rail, Pegs to Suicide, etc. Check out more photos from our trip to Vallejo on Dave’s Blog HERE or read more below.

Matt Reyes - Wheel Talk - New York 2013 - Brooklyn Peel Sessions

Last Summer I flew out to New York with Dew Sippawit and stayed at Ed “Wonka” Laforte’s house in Brooklyn. Here’s a handful of older photos that were taken during our two week stay and never released until now. If you went to the Word Is Bond Premiere in SF then you’ve probably already seen the sequence wallride off the red cellar door. Or if you’ve watched the Wheel Talk 2013 Edit I put out last year then I’m sure you recognize the clip. Aside from that, It was rad riding the spot where Peel Sessions was held (beneath a bridge in Brooklyn). A location that may as well been known as the birthplace of FGFS. If you haven’t heard of it until now, I suggest you do some digging into the history of Fixed Gear Freestyle and get up to speed. Check out some more photos from NY HERE. Photo Credit – Dew Sippawit

Here’s some 35mm photos from the Fixed Gear Open 6 competition that was held in (Beijing) China earlier this year. I can’t even begin to describe or explain what a fucking good time this trip was. Having Dew Sippawit & Jaoa Danaikrit there for every step of the adventure was a crucial part of the trip and made going about life in this foreign land even easier. If you’ve never been on a trip w/ the homies, I highly advise you plan one; it’s quite possibly the only way to travel. Ines Brunn was there to compete and show people a side of fixed gear that most have forgotten and little attempt. The Thai boys came through and destroyed the cheese wedge I managed to catch shots of Jaoa’s tabletop and Dew’s tuck no hander to barspin. Check out more 35mm photos HERE.

Ed Wonka Laforte - Turf Bikes - Oakland - Pegs 1

I was looking through some older photos on my computer and came across these two shots that Seitaro Iki took of Ed “Wonka” Laforte riding a double peg down a rail in down town Oakland. These were taken back when we were still filming for Word Is Bond and were shot on the same day that Ed did the huge hanger at the end of his section. Check out an alternate angle below or browse through more of Seitaro Iki’s Photography HERE.

Yesterday I went riding around San Francisco w/ Anthony Combs who crashed out in the little bungalow beneath my bed the night before. We checked out the new skatepark they built beneath the highway and rode some spots in the surrounding neighborhoods. Mike laced Anthony up the new aluminum TURF Cranks, sprocket, and a front hub. The find of the day definitely had to be the load of florescent lightbulbs we found wedged into a street can in the TL. It’s been a while since I’ve ridden with Anthony but I guarantee that you’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the near future.

Tobi Whaley and I collaborated on making a kit out of the “Aerodynamics” graphic I recently released. The development of this kit has been in the works for a while now, and is just now coming into fruition. It’ll be rad to see Wheel Talk on more people than just those in the Fixed Gear Freestyle community. Pre-orders have closed, but hit up Wheel Talk Road on his social channels and he might be able to do something for you. Read more below to check out other shots and close ups of the kit.

Every so often the dudes from San Jose come up to stay at our pad in the East Bay and ride over the weekend. Jimmy Watcha, Kent Ly, and Luciano Ortiz are just a few of the local riders from SJ that you should keep your eye on. After a long day of riding street spots in Oakland, we hit up China Town to grab some cheap grub before riding back under the bay through the Webster Tube. Check out more 35mm Photos HERE.

ALAMEDA SKATEPARK SEND OFF

1 Comment Screen Shots, VIDEOS


After more than 3 months of surfing the couches at our pad in Alameda, Dew Sippawit & Jaoa Danaikrit reluctantly flew back to Thailand last month. We celebrated their final day in the States by kicking back and cutting loose at the local skatepark. A couple of dudes from San Jose drove up the day before to ride and bid the Thai boys a proper farewell. We stacked a ton of footage while they were here, and just got back from a trip to China, so keep your eyes peeled for more of Dew & Jaoa coming in the near future. Read more and check out some stills from the video below.
