As we gear up to release the video from Tadashi Nakamura’s stay in San Francsico. I figured now was the time to release some of the remaining photos I took on his last day in town. We did some sight seeing as we explored some of the iconic parts of the city that I knew we hadn’t ventured into yet. We ate lunch in a small garden off the freeway and rode along the shore following whatever road would bring us closer to The Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for Tadashi’s video later this week.

A couple weeks ago I met up w/ Ed “Wonka” Laforte and cruised around San Francisco’s China Town. We wondered up and down the network of alleyways in search of spots that we may have previously overlooked. What Chi town lacks in french fires, it more than makes up for in congested streets riddled with trash & clothes hung out to dry. Ed has been riding his signature frame from Capone Bikes for a little more than a month now and has been going harder than ever on it. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from this day coming soon.

I managed to grab these photos while we were roaming around the city filming for Ramon Antonio’s Welcome to the TURF Mob video. I still can’t believe that he was able to jump up that loading dock as many times as he did. I took on look at it, and knew I didn’t have hops like that. If you haven’t seen his section yet you can check it out HERE or on the TURF website. It’s riddled full of huge double pegs, toboggans, and suicide no handers. Be on the look out for more coming from Ramon now that we ride w/ him nearly everyday of the week. Head over to the THIETH Webstore for more great shirts like this one w/ the Nike swoosh.

I was real stoked to have Tadashi Nakamura come to town and ride with us in San Francisco during the later half of January. For every clip he stacked there was an even more brutal fall. I’ve been piecing together a video from his travels and am in the middle of wrapping everything up and getting it ready to release. Keep your eyes peeled for a new video dropping early next week.

When Seitaro told me that his buddy from Japan was coming to San Francisco to ride and explore the city, I was immediately hyped. Less than a week later, Tadashi Nakamura appeared at a hotel in our neighborhood where he would be staying for the next two weeks. I rode over there after work, scooped him up, and wasting no time in showing him around town. Here are a couple photos from when we explored the tunnels along the railroad tracks on his last full day in The Bay. Check out more shots below and keep your eyes peeled for the video from his stay coming soon.

BLSD X WHEEL TALK THAILAND 14′

No Comments Trips, VIDEOS


Jaoa Danaikrit just released the video from the Black Sunday & Wheel Talk trip to Thailand last year. Featuring riding from the likes of Devon Lawson, Anthony Combs, Jaoa Danaikrit & Steven Jensen. This star studded cast takes on Thailand as they both ride the streets and explore the jungles. Jaoa did an amazing job cutting this together and slayed it with all of the incredible time lapse footage. For a while we weren’t sure if Devon was ever going to come back home because he enjoyed life out there so much. Anthony is by far one of the most entertaining dudes I’ve ever known and has some of the best dance moves out of everyone on the team. Steven Jensen came through packing heat and pulled one of the gnarliest grind combos I’ve ever seen towards the end. Kick back, press play and enjoy the show.

FGFS SUPER BOWL SUNDAY 2015

No Comments VIDEOS



Nothing brings a family together like the Super Bowl, and we couldn’t agree more. For this year’s big game, we hit the streets of San Francisco for a day filled of false starts, interceptions, city poop, field goals and the occasional trick or two. I woke up Sunday morning, made a couple calls and met up with the dudes downtown where we rode from the late afternoon until the sunset. This is what you can find us doing on any given weekend. Read More and check out screen shots from the video below.
