Ed has been surfing my couch here in San Francisco while we catch clips and kick it. He’s flying back to New York tomorrow but should be back in the Bay Area sometime soon. The next trip we make needs to be to NYC. See what’s good on the East Coast.
This Saturday we’re premiering Shredwell2 in San Jose at iMiNUSD. We’re going to have a street session before hand while Ed Wonka is in town. We plan to meet up at CCP around 3pm and then roll around from spot to spot before we head to IMD for the screening around 7pm. Bring your bike, your buds, and we’ll see you there.
I’ve been filming with Ed “Wonka” Laforte for the last couple days and caught a couple angles of him hitting a tooth hangover at San Jose State. Just wait until you see the actual clip of him blasting through that kink at the bottom.
Anthony Combs knocked out this double threader as were riding through San Jose yesterday. He took one look, circled around and hopped it first try. Made it look too easy, threading it top to bottom, and side to side.
Last week a bunch of us went and kicked it at 3rd & Army, one of the few safe spot skate spots in San Francisco. I copped a couple photos of Forest Parker blasting off this metal latch that we propped up w/ a rock. It’s amazing what a few quick improvements will do, once you take a look around and start getting funky.
On the ride home just now Devon Lawson and I passed by the Full House Park which caught the last bit of light of the day. We pulled over to catch some last min flicks before we headed home to call it a day.
Here’s some leftover munchies from 2012 for your eyes to feast on. I cut together a stack of riding clips that didn’t quite make the first cut. Most of this footage was shot during the time we spent filming for SHREDWELL2. I have a bunch of shit lined up and waiting to drop, so be on the look out for more coming out this month.
Here’s the official Introduction to SHREDWELL2. Consider this a Happy New year gift from Grime Bikes, Chrome Bags, and Wheel Talk. Enjoy. Shredwell2 is by far the biggest video project I’ve ever undergone. The amount of footage that we had to sift through, and chop together, would not have been possible without the help of my good friend Mike T Schmitt. Here’s a taste of the fruits of our labor.
Here’s a bunch of behind the scenes footage from all the trips we’ve taken this year. Plus a bunch of stuff that wasn’t used in edits or Shredwell2. No track, who needs one, the commentary and background music speaks for itself. 6 minutes of pure fixie gold, happy new years everyone.
