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.

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.
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.
With only hours left on the clock until we release “Word Is Bond”, we decided to give you a final taste of what’s to come. Here’s a bunch of screen shots from the Friends Section in the video. Showcasing riders from all over the world, this collaborative effort is something that you won’t want to miss. Check out more screen grabs below. Read more
We’ve been gearing up for the release of Word Is Bond for quite some time now and have never generated this type of hype for a free online video before. Usually the only videos that have premiere’s are DVD’s, but considering the amount of time we spent making this monumental video, we decided to make an exception. Here’s some screen shots from my section to tide you over until the official release on 04.20.2014. Check out more screen grabs below.
As promised here’s some more screen shots from The upcoming Turf Bikes Video, “Word Is Bond”. Ed “Wonka” LaForte’s section is sure to impress considering there’s few people who are willing and able to try some of the tricks Ed does. The official web release is on 4.20.2014 less than 5 days from now. If you missed the last 2 premiere’s then you can still make the one in China going down on April 19th. Otherwise kick back and wait to watch it on the internet just like everybody else. Check out more screen grabs below. Read more
Christian Hamrick collected clips for the Turf Bikes “Word Is Bond” Video while he was on the Coast to Ghost Trip and during a short visit he made to the West Coast. Hambone is currently living in Kansas City, a place which I’m told has unreal street spots. We might just have to make a trip out there to investigate these so called spots. If you live near San Jose, come out to the premiere being held at iMiNUSD on Saturday April 12th. We’re going to meet up and ride earlier during the day and then head to ID doors open at 7:30. Be there or be square. Circles only, no invite, all ages are welcome. Check out more screen shots below.
Tonight we’re premiering “Word Is Bond” in San Francisco. If you live in the area you should come out to Lower Branch at 8pm & kick it with the rest of the Fixed Freestyle scene here in the Bay. Here’s some screen shots of Jimmy Watcha, as motivation to make it to the event. Jimmy may be the youngest member on the Turf Mob, be he holds his own and manhandles his bike like a lion tamer. Come see for yourself, we’ll be at this address HERE. Check out more below. Read more
As promised here’s some more screen shots from the upcoming Turf Bikes video “Word Is Bond“. I’m in the midst of wrapping up editing the last couple sections and adding the icing on top of the cake. We’ve been filming over the last year and finally have something that we feel strongly about and are just about ready to share w/ the world. Until then you’ll just have to soak in these screen shots of Mike Schmitt. Read more
Yesterday Lucas Bockelmann went out filming w/ Ed Wonka around the streets of San Francisco. I went over to Ed’s house last night to peep some of the footage and eat some pizza. This huge tooth hangover was by far one of the gnarlier things they shot. I’m super stoked on the look of Lucas’s new HVX video camera which he’s currently using to film a video of all the dudes in Northern & Southern California.
