WHEEL TALK JAPAN TRIP 2013

No Comments Trips, VIDEOS


After nearly a year in the making and being put on the back burner in order to produce “Word Is Bond“, here’s the official video from the Wheel Talk Trip to Japan. Filmed over the course of our two week stay and was made possible because of our dudes from Fish & Chips Crew. After traveling around the Southern tip of Japan on a 9 State tour, and flying out to Tokyo to visit Marco we were only able to scratch the surface on what unreal street spots Japan had to offer. I don’t know if there’s much more I can say about this trip that I haven’t already, so press play and check out some screenshots below.

FILMING W/ MIKE SCHMITT

Mike Schmitt & I have lived under the same roof for a while now, and have been stacking a ton of footage during that time. It makes it easy to film having somebody else who rides living one room away. Here’s some long angle shots I took in between filming clips across the East Bay. That’s our dude Jaoa Danaikrit crouched on the steps like a ninja with a camera in his hands. It was good having the Thai dudes in town with a second camera so we could shoot multiple angles on our weekly excursions. Keep your eyes peeled for the clips to accompany these photos.

ALEX GONZALEZ + BB17

No Comments VIDEOS


Alex Gonzalez‘s Welcome to BreakBrake17 was filmed over the course of two days in San Francisco. I followed him around the city as we ripped around China Town, cleaned up trash down alleyways and bombed between the trolley tracks on California St. It’s rare to see people hopping around and doing track tricks on an aluminum frame. People now a days either ride track bikes built for speed or have transitioned into riding Fixed Freestyle. Alex is one of the few people who blends both styles of riding and shreds everywhere he goes. Stop reading, press play and enjoy.

Feared by both pigeons and pedestrians alike, Alex Gonzalez has a style unlike anybody else and rips around like a bat out of hell. Here’s a bunch of screenshots I pulled from when he came to film in San Francisco last weekend. This was the first opportunity I’ve had to shoot something track related since 2010 and had almost forgot how hectic bombing hills in the city can be. Keep your eyes peeled for the video to go along with the stills later this week.

DEW & JAOA | KOREA TRIP 2013

1 Comment VIDEOS


Jaoa Danaikrit just released another one of the sections he put together for Can’t Fool The Youth 3 (CFTY3). This one features Dew Sippawit and himself riding around South Korea after their stay here in The States last year. Jaoa does an incredible job capturing the spirit of the trip with good vibes & good tunes the whole way through. I appreciated the fact that there was a healthy mix of not only solid riding, but b-roll shots of the culture and the places they saw along the way. It made me feel like I was right there along with them as they explored what Korea had to offer. Check out some screen shots I pulled below.

THAI SAN FRANCISCO TRIP 2013

No Comments VIDEOS


Jaoa Danaikrit just released this video from his & Dew Sippawit’s stay here in the states last year. They surfed the couches at our house in San Francisco for most of their trip and stacked up enough video to put together this recap which was used in Can’t Fool The Youth 3. If you haven’t already seen the full video, then I suggest you head over to Chop Em Down and pick up a copy of this limited edition press. I’m stoked that he took the time to put together a hardcover book to come along with it using. Jaoa nailed it with this one combining a perfect mixture of lifestyle and riding footage, the splendor of which almost brought a tear to my eye. Check out more of Jaoa’s videos over at A Tunnel Films.

BREEZY EXCURSION SUMMER 14′

No Comments VIDEOS

Wheel Talk, Straight Up SJ & Breezy Excursion teamed up to shoot this lookbook for their 2014 Summer Collection. Wheel Talk’s very own Scott Horton was around when we first started the team and now he’s popping wheelies and blowing smoke with his buddies on a much larger scale. Stoked to see him shredding with guys like Roger Regan and the rest of the dudes from Straight up who continue to push not only themselves but the perception of what’s possible on a bike that size. The saying “I just want to do hood-rat shit with my friends” has never rang so true.

RIDE + STYLE 2014 | VIDEO

No Comments Events, VIDEOS


With more than 30 riders from all over the world competing in the freestyle event, things were bound to get wild as everybody geared up for the 2014 Red Bull Ride & Style. Each year they mix up the course and this year they really out did themselves creating one of the best flowing layouts to date. Everyone brought their A-game that day as they stepped up to the plate to empty out their bag of tricks. Elliott Milner brought was linking together lines on the park like he’s ridden it his whole life. Jakob Santos hucked something huge off just about every object there. Joe Mckeag showed everyone what it looks like to ride transition, and Johnathan Ball wasn’t letting anything go untouched. There’s too much that went down for me to even begin to discuss, so I’m just going to have to let the video speak for itself. Read more below to see the final results. Thanks to Dave Beard for shooting the photos for the thumbnail.
