Our good friend Lance Jeffrey Skundrich was at the 2012 AFC UPROAR hanging out and taking photos of the riders during heats. This photo of Anthony Combs kicking out a Superman came out looking too ridiculous. Although he didn’t land it, he sure as hell came close. If anybody is going to do a Superman on Fixed, it’s going to be Combs. Check out more photos HERE.
LockedCog took this photo of me hitting a 540 from the judges booth moments before the Pro comp began at the 2012 AFC Uproar. I was real stoked on the ramp setup this year, and was even more glad that it didn’t rain. I rarely ever get to ride ramps or transitions living in San Francisco, which is why it’s always a pleasure when I get to shred these pop up parks. This event really made me want to start riding Skateparks again, I haven’t thrown a 540 since the days of the Wheel Talk Compound. Check out more of the photos that Kris took HERE.
IMINUSD posted this photo of the 4 of us at the 2012 AFC UPROAR at the SF Bike Expo on Sunday. The couse this year was real solid, and for the 1st time they didn’t have us tucked away in the back of the Expo. I think everyone can agree when I say that the best part about these events is getting together to ride with all the homies. Read more to check out the final standings Read more
Steven Jensen enjoyed riding w/ us in Seattle so much that he decided to come back to the Bay Area w/ us to catch some last minute clips for Shredwell 2. Mike Schmitt and I filmed w/ him for a few days in San Francisco, while we worked on wrapping up editing SW2. I’m sure glad he came back w/ us, because he has some of the most technical clips in the video. Be sure to check out Jensen making a heavy appearance in the friends section of Shredwell 2.
Here’s a couple screen shots I pulled from SHREDWELL2 of Mike Schmitt riding in down town San Jose. The dude standing next to him w/ the patch just wanted to come over and show the camera some love. The ledge leading into the Guadalupe River has to be the longest hubba I’ve ever seen anybody hit on fixed. Too many stairs to count, too locked in to care. Really digging that custom SW2 shirt he’s wearing.
Our buddy Lucas Bockelmann from Ratpack came with us to the 2012 Fijate in Puerto Rico. I think I speak for everyone when I say that this was the best damn vacation I’ve ever been on. By the end of it, none of us wanted to come back. But after a week of no sleep and sweating off everything I drank, it felt good coming home to a more familiar climate. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I can’t wait for the next Fijate.
Takuya Sakamoto took this photo of me riding street on our last day night in Puerto Rico. While we were there we rode some of the sickest street spots I’ve ever layed eyes on. Such beautifully rugged architecture that it felt like they were made to be ridden. This huge bank spot is just a taste of the magic hidden deep within Puerto Rico. (Trick : feeble pop up to hop into the bank)
Here’s an iMiNUSD advertisement that I made from a relatively old photo of Anthony Combs. The wood grain wrap job on his G.O.A.T is a dead give away of that. It’s been a minute since I’ve been in DTSJ to ride, going to have to change that real soon. Who’s down for a BBQ Jam on the iMiNUSD ramps at Jeff Dempler’s house?
Aáron Borrás from PRFIXED was out on the course popping off photos as we rode the ramps at this year’s Fijate. With nothing but Gasolina keeping us going we went hard in this unfamiliar climate, using our shirts as towels, instead of articles of clothing. Dunking our heads in water, and putting ice in our hats didn’t seem to have much effect as we melted beneath the hot Puerto Rican sun. There didn’t seem to be much escape from the humidity, but I don’t think any of us really care as we rode our bikes, and hung out w/ the locals in what has to be the best vacation I’ve ever been on.
