RIDE + STYLE 2014 | VALENTIN

No Comments Events

There were a handful of new faces on the court who came out to do damage and show us what they’re made of. Our dude Valentin Racho was out there throwing some of the bigger & more obscure barspin combos of the day. Nobody knew what to expect when Valentin charged up this 8ft bubba and threw a massive truck driver off the top. Shout out to Garth Milan for shooting this flick of our dude during one of his heats.

TURF BIKES | SUNDAZE EP.5

No Comments 35mm, Film




Last Sunday Mike Schmitt & I cruised around our humble island abode here in Alameda and brought along with us the trusty 35mm Camera. We lurked around the abandoned military base & rode along the incredibly windy coastline in search of spots in less than likely locations. I came across an old truck bench that we pulled out of the trash and sessioned for a bit. After catching a couple quick photos we ventured into the tall grass along the coast and circled back into the old Naval Base where Mike rolled this barred fence that was propped up against another. I was the most stoked to find this teeter totter that we had previously thought was gone for good after its recent disappearance. Check out more photos below, and stay tuned for the next episode of TURF Sundaze. Read more

35MM | A SEA OF CHANGE

No Comments 35mm



I carry my 35mm camera around with me everywhere I go and do most of my shooting as I ride around San Francisco. I’ve been most interested in capturing the sea of changes that SF is currently undergoing. There’s been an increased amount of construction and demolitions going on around the city and I’ve been hellbent on shooting every bit of it. Read More below to check out some other shots, or browse more 35mm photos on my flickr HERE.

ED WONKA | TOOTH HANGOVER

No Comments WT Action Shots


Seitaro Iki shot this photo of Ed Wonka muscling out a tooth hangover while we wrapped up filming for the new Turf Bikes video. If you’ve seen Word Is Bond, then I’m sure you’ll recognize this shot from the last clip in his section. Ed hangovers rails that few would even attempt, and has no problems blasting through even the deadliest of kinks. Which is why I consider tooths to be Ed’s signature move. Read more below to see the screen shot from Mike’s angle. Photo Credit : Seitaro Iki Read more

TURF BIKES | SUNDAZE EP.4

No Comments 35mm, Lifestyle




Given the fact that we shoot most of our stills on 35mm film, the TURF Sundaze posts are always about a week behind. Last Sunday we roamed around Oakland with Egg The Dog, a regular addition to The Mob. He’s either strapped to Mike’s back or running along side us as we lurked from spot to spot. Check out more photos below. Read more

We’ve been gearing up for the release of Word Is Bond for quite some time now and have never generated this type of hype for a free online video before.

Here’s some screen shots from my section to tide you over until the official release on 04.20.2014. Check out more screen grabs below.
