A couple days ago I took this sequence shot of Dew Sippawit throwing a nollie barspin at the library here in The City. He has that trick better than anybody I’ve ever seen, and could easily be his signature move if he was a character in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. I’ve been filming with him a ton since he’s been in the states, and have stacked up more than enough to put something together. Be on the look out for a video of him shredding the Bay coming soon.
It’s been real rad having Seitaro Iki living in San Francisco. He’s been taking a ton of photos and videos of everyone since he’s been out here, which is why it was nice to shoot some shit of him for a change. He’s the latest addition to the ever growing Fixed Freestyle scene here in SF, and most certainly not the last. Expect to see more of Say in the near future. See more below. Read more
A couple days ago we rode around the city catching clips and shredding some parts of town that rarely get ridden. This decayed abandoned building was probably one of the sickest spots I’ve ridden in a while. There’s not very many places in the city that have steel coping lining the ledges. Or have the Golden Gate Bridge lurking in the background for that matter. Top – 360, bottom – wheelie 180.

What San Francisco lacks in skateparks, it makes up for in it’s street spots. There’s only one in the city that I can think of, this being it. Last week Jaoa Danakrit, Dew Sippawit, and the rest of the local dudes went and rode there while filming in the Mission. Jaoa laced this incredibly clean foot jam whip while we were there.
I ride with Devon Lawson more than anybody I know. We’re constantly out filming and causing a riot around town. Now that we’re done shooting his Can’t Fool the Youth 2 Section, it’s onto the next film project. Our good friend Seitaro Iki took this photo of him hitting a line at Kezar Stadium a couple days ago. We spend so much time riding this spot, that now we’re forced to get real creative if we want to film anything.
Dew’ Sippawit and Jaoa Danaikrit came from Thailand to San Francisco for the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. They’ve been staying at my house since the event, and have been crushing all the street spots out here while they’re still in the states. Needless to say, I’m real stoked to have them here and can’t even believe some of the tricks they’ve been pulling. Keep your eyes peeled for more from them in the near future. Read more
With the help of Zane Meyer and Omar Sebai I was able to chop together this highlight reel of the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. A lot of shit went down in San Francisco last weekend, and this is just a taste of it. I’ve been posting so much about this event that at this point I don’t even know what to say. I’m going to stop talking and let the video speak for itself. Enjoy.
I shot video in between heats of everybody during the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style, but managed to catch a couple photos of Steven Jensen practicing foot jams during warm ups. He wooed the crowd by doing pogos in footjam for a minute, before riding fakie down the other side. Steven is the master of the funky combos and technical tricks, he’s always getting weird and pulling tricks out of his ass. Watching him ride continues to amaze me, and will always inspires me to be more creative.
Jonathan Davis was mobbing around the course like a bat out of hell, crushing everything that lied in his wake. His motorcycle helmet w/ the fuck the world decal really helped set the tone for what to expect from his riding. JD pulled one of the craziest tricks of the day when he double peg stalled the huge wallride in front of the judges booth. He was one of the few people to hit the wallride from quarter to quarter.
