In between filming for his part in the second issue of Can’t Fool The Youth, Devon Lawson dedicated some time to shoot this quick section for the TURF Bikes full length video entitled “Word Is Bond“. Devon has always been known for his precision barspins, steady pedals, and shear strength behind the bike. If you live under a rock and still haven’t seen the entire video front to back then I suggest you read more below and discover what you’ve been missing.

I slacked on posting this when it came out, but it’s better late than never. Especially when this is quite possibly the best TURF Tuesday yet. Mike Schmitt, Ian Walker, Shane Hunt and I met up at Potrero Skatepark after work to hang out and ride. We stacked some clips, got hassled by a couple kooks and hit a few local spots around the neighborhood before calling it a night. Check out some of the other TURF Tuesday videos HERE and keep your eyes out for number four coming out later this month.
Originally released on 04.20.2014, here’s Ed “Wonka” Laforte’s section from the TURF Bikes full length video, Word Is Bond. Now that most of the clips are 2-3 years old, we decided it was time for this footage to resurface and get released section by section over the next couple of months. Keep your ear to the ground and enjoy the first section in Word Is Bond, or check out the full length video below.
It’s hard to tell how difficult some tricks are when they’re being blasted one after another, and you don’t have a chance to fully digest what happened. It’s an editing style that’s common in action sports and will either drops jaws or glue eyes to the screen. After I watch video part that’s almost too impressive it makes me either stoked to go out and ride, or throw in the towel and call it a day. So in an effort to humanize the whole experience, we decided to slow things down a bit and rewind some old footage from the last year.
In celebration of our Independence Mike Schmitt, Ed Wonka Laforte & I met up in SF to ride, film, light off some fireworks, and get a quick haircut from Mr. Laforte himself. Check out this video that MTS pieced together of our afternoon out on the town and read more to see some screenshots below. WHEEL TALK X TURF BIKES
The dudes over at Red Bull really one upped themselves with the construction of this year’s Over/Under mini drome. 64 riders from around the world came out to shred, sweat & battle it out on this a one of a kind figure 8 track. On top of competing in the race, Mike Schmitt & I filmed a ton during the event and put together this video of the night as it unfolded. Read more below to check out Red Bull’s official recap as well as a bunch of screen shots from our video.
A couple weeks ago we all met up in SF and drove down a dirt road to this DIY skate spot we’ve been wanting to ride. We set up camp, hydrated, ate pizza, and shredded until the sun started to set and the fog rolled in. The mix of quikrete and graffiti made the ditch as slick as ice and took some getting used to, but after about an hour or so everybody figured out the footwork and was back in action. This definitely wasn’t the easiest spot to ride, but that’s what made it rad. We all had a killer time and are already figuring out the next trip outside The City.
After nearly 3 months of trying to keep things under wraps while filming for this video we’re finally ready to announce my introduction to the BOMBTRACK Team. Filmed on location here in San Francisco, we roamed all over the neighborhood in search of short-lived spots from all of the constant construction the city seems to be cemented in. In addition to stopping on the street for a quick clip, we checked off a bunch of spots off from the endless bucket list of places we’ve been wanting to ride. Check out some screen shots from the video below and head over to BOMBTRACK to check out what they’re working with.
On Saturday a bunch of us headed to the Mission District for burritos, brews and the first sanctioned Mission Criterium held in San Francisco. They had a prototype for this event last year and were able to get permits this year to shut down streets for the race. I teamed up w/ MTS to shoot the event, kick it w/ the homies and watch the action unfold. There were a couple pile ups in the beginning but as the crowd thinned out, it became clear who was leading the pack and chomping at the bit.
1st – Manuel Barra
2nd – Marc Marino
3rd – Chas Christiansen
Mike Schmitt took Michael Penrose on a tour of some of the greener parts of San Francisco and filmed this one day edit of their excursion. I’ve been real stoked on all of the videos TURF has been putting out now that MTS has a camera of his own. Expect to see a lot more content coming out of the Bay Area, and keep your eyes peeled for Michael’s section in the upcoming Wheel Talk video.
