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.
Here’s a couple shots of Christian Hamrick hitting a switch smith at the Museums in Golden Gate Park. He recently uprooted from the city to move back to his home town of Kansas City. I’ll miss having him located a couple blocks away from where I live, but his move will give us more incentive to visit him in the Mid-West. Stay up buddy, I’m sure we’ll see you sometime real soon.
WHEEL TALK STICKERS are now available online. This is the 2nd run of white on clear stickers that we’ve released, and there aren’t much left. So start pinching those pennies and get your hands on some before they’re gone, because they won’t be around for long. Click HERE to place an order and see more details.
Ed Laforte, better known as “Wonka” recently moved back to NYC after living in San Jose, CA for a hot min. We spent most of the time he lived here filming for Shredwell2, a full length DVD we’ve been working on for nearly a year now. We’re hammering out some of the finer details and getting ready to get it out of our hands, and into yours. There’s going to be a premiere at the Chrome Store in Chicago on Dec 11th, if you’re in the area I suggest you go check it out.
