Ramon Antonio, Devon Lawson and I teamed up to cover some of what went down at the 2013 AFC Uproar. Big thanks to Ride SFO for hosting this event year after year, it’s things like this that help build the freestyle community. Which is why we’re going to take matters into our own hands and start hosting more of our own rides, comps & jams. We’ll keep you posted on that, for now press play and enjoy some of Fixed Freestyle’s finest. Read more below to see screenshots from the event. Read more

A while back we teamed up with our friends at SPL Pictures to film this Slow Motion video in San Francisco. Everything was shot on the Sony FS700 and RED Epic, with Cine-Xenar III lenses provided by Schneider Optics. Special thanks to Solid Camera for outfitting the FS700′s for the shoot & our dudes Chris Marino, Tyler Lee Cushing, and Scott Lyman for coming out to film. Without their help, this video would not have been possible. Enough talking, if you want to learn more, check out the vimeo page if not, press play. Watch it HERE
A few weeks ago JeffyD, Mikul Eriksson and his crew made it up to SF to meet up with Matt Reyes and make use of the Canon C100 they rented. The day was full of fast tricks and faster riding all over the city, with a lot of commuting footage with some tricks mixed in. Above is a photo of Matt blasting a curb cut over the fire hydrant. Below is Matt getting sideways over the city, into the steepest hill of the day. Read more
Big thanks to everyone who helped me film this, there’s too many names to list, but you know who you are. If you both ride and film then I’m sure you know how hard it is to catch clips when you’re behind the lens all the time. Filmed during the course of 2013 in both San Francisco and New York. After riding on both ends of the US I’ve come to the conclusion that the West Coast needs more cellar doors. They were by far my favorite bit of riding street in NY. To add to that last thought, NY needs more hills because that’s where some of the best spots hide. It’s already been a good year for Fixed Freestyle, and I have a feeling it’s only going to get better. Read more
Ed Wonka recently did an interview w/ Dose on Network A. In it he talks about the end of Grime Bikes, the birth of Fixed Freestyle, and what got him into riding in the first place. I shot a few of the clips used in here, and am stoked to see Ed shredding again after coming off 2 broken wrists. That bodega on his corner makes some killer sandwiches and the mozzarella sticks at Crowns are the truth.
Omar Sebai is a 16 year old shredder from Southern California, and is the newest member to the Wheel Talk Youngbloods team. He’s one of the funniest kids I’ve ever met and has barspins down better than I could ever dream. He came and stayed at my pad in SF for a few days during Spring Break, and was able to film enough in both SF and SJ to put together this nice introduction. So kick back, relax and enjoy this minute and a half video of Omar Sebai. Click the read more button below to see some screen shots from the video. Read more
Jeff Dempler put together this video of his new 22mm “Hella Blasted” Crank arms from Destroy Bikes. Made in the USA, these cranks are full 4130 steel with a 22mm 48 splined spindle that is hollowed out to make it both stronger and lighter than a normal 19mm spindle. They come powder coated black with sand blasted logos, and are available without the cross for all you atheists out there.
With the help of Zane Meyer and Omar Sebai I was able to chop together this highlight reel of the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. A lot of shit went down in San Francisco last weekend, and this is just a taste of it. I’ve been posting so much about this event that at this point I don’t even know what to say. I’m going to stop talking and let the video speak for itself. Enjoy.
Jonathan Davis was mobbing around the course like a bat out of hell, crushing everything that lied in his wake. His motorcycle helmet w/ the fuck the world decal really helped set the tone for what to expect from his riding. JD pulled one of the craziest tricks of the day when he double peg stalled the huge wallride in front of the judges booth. He was one of the few people to hit the wallride from quarter to quarter.
Posting shit about myself is always strange, but I had some screen shots from the 2013 Ride + Style video I made and figured I’d post them up anyways. Last weekend was too good. It was real rad to have everybody in town at the same time. Our house was pretty hectic to say the least. People fell asleep wherever they could find the space. There needs to be more events like this, it’s a good excuse to get all the homies together. Check out more screen shots below. Read more
