Yesterday I went riding around San Francisco w/ Anthony Combs who crashed out in the little bungalow beneath my bed the night before. We checked out the new skatepark they built beneath the highway and rode some spots in the surrounding neighborhoods. Mike laced Anthony up the new aluminum TURF Cranks, sprocket, and a front hub. The find of the day definitely had to be the load of florescent lightbulbs we found wedged into a street can in the TL. It’s been a while since I’ve ridden with Anthony but I guarantee that you’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the near future.

Tobi Whaley and I collaborated on making a kit out of the “Aerodynamics” graphic I recently released. The development of this kit has been in the works for a while now, and is just now coming into fruition. It’ll be rad to see Wheel Talk on more people than just those in the Fixed Gear Freestyle community. Pre-orders have closed, but hit up Wheel Talk Road on his social channels and he might be able to do something for you. Read more below to check out other shots and close ups of the kit.

Every so often the dudes from San Jose come up to stay at our pad in the East Bay and ride over the weekend. Jimmy Watcha, Kent Ly, and Luciano Ortiz are just a few of the local riders from SJ that you should keep your eye on. After a long day of riding street spots in Oakland, we hit up China Town to grab some cheap grub before riding back under the bay through the Webster Tube. Check out more 35mm Photos HERE.

ALAMEDA SKATEPARK SEND OFF

1 Comment Screen Shots, VIDEOS


After more than 3 months of surfing the couches at our pad in Alameda, Dew Sippawit & Jaoa Danaikrit reluctantly flew back to Thailand last month. We celebrated their final day in the States by kicking back and cutting loose at the local skatepark. A couple of dudes from San Jose drove up the day before to ride and bid the Thai boys a proper farewell. We stacked a ton of footage while they were here, and just got back from a trip to China, so keep your eyes peeled for more of Dew & Jaoa coming in the near future. Read more and check out some stills from the video below.

After flying over 5,900 Miles over the pacific from San Francisco to China for the 2014 Fixed Gear Open 6 in Beijing I had seen a lot of places and met even more people. Dew Sippawit & Jaoa Danaikrit met up with me out there shred and stack clips as a team. Dew threw some huge tuck no hander to barspins, 180 tuck no handers, nose manual to barspins, and ended up winning the Freestyle event. Jaoa Danaikrit came in a close second and I won the high jump clearing 105cm. It was amazing to see so many talented young riders in China and inspiring to watch Ines Brunn ride who has a stye unlike anybody I’ve ever seen. I don’t think I’ve ever taken so many photos, signed so many autographs, or smiled so much in my life. Thank you for all the riders who love this community enough to put on this event and make this sport happen.

Fixed Gear Open 6
Tomorrow morning I’m waking up and hopping on a flight to China for the 6th annual Fixed Gear Open in Beijing. Dew Sippawit & Jaoa Danaikrit are going to meet me out there for the event and to shred whatever street spots we can while we can. I’ve stocked up on memory cards, film, socks and am ready to set sail on another trip overseas. Keep your eyes peeled for photos from all of us during our stay out there.

While the bald cat and arrows on the back are there for those concerned with wind resistance and shaving seconds on the track. Head over to our store and pick one up HERE before they’re gone for good. Each order comes with decals and an assorted sticker pack, available while supplies last.

WHEEL TALK JAPAN TRIP 2013

No Comments Trips, VIDEOS


After nearly a year in the making and being put on the back burner in order to produce “Word Is Bond“, here’s the official video from the Wheel Talk Trip to Japan. Filmed over the course of our two week stay and was made possible because of our dudes from Fish & Chips Crew. After traveling around the Southern tip of Japan on a 9 State tour, and flying out to Tokyo to visit Marco we were only able to scratch the surface on what unreal street spots Japan had to offer. I don’t know if there’s much more I can say about this trip that I haven’t already, so press play and check out some screenshots below.

FILMING W/ MIKE SCHMITT

Mike Schmitt & I have lived under the same roof for a while now, and have been stacking a ton of footage during that time. It makes it easy to film having somebody else who rides living one room away. Here’s some long angle shots I took in between filming clips across the East Bay. That’s our dude Jaoa Danaikrit crouched on the steps like a ninja with a camera in his hands. It was good having the Thai dudes in town with a second camera so we could shoot multiple angles on our weekly excursions. Keep your eyes peeled for the clips to accompany these photos.
