THE OVERGROWN COMPOUND

Last weekend, Ed Wonka, Scott Horton, and myself (Matt Reyes) spent some time cleaning up The Wheel Talk Compound, after months of neglect. Nothing a hose, some rakes, shovels, and brooms can’t fix. We had our good friend Mikul Eriksson come out and w/ a bunch of his video equipment and film our little afternoon session. Totally digging the way this video turned out, nothing but chill vibes and tandem lines.

JEFFYD : SCREEN SHOTS

Here’s some screen shots from an edit I’ve been putting together of our boy Jeff Dempler. Keep your eyes peeled for this dropping in the next week or so. It’s gunna be really dirt heavy, JeffyD’s strong suit.

TOOTHPICK STALL

JeffyD has those toothpick stalls on dry ledges pretty damn decent. Here’s a couple different angles of him sticking em’ on these fresh new ledges. Courtesy of the city of Gilroy. I can’t wait to head back up to the city and get out of this heat. #madhot Shirtless & shorts don’t even come close to cuttin’ it.

DIRT + HEAT

I’ve been in Gilroy for the past few days, and it has been nearly 100degrees everyday. Without fail. Yesterday I spent some time riding w/ Jeffy & Gonzo @ some local spots that have been reworked since the last time I was in town. We came across this series of little dirt step ups off the levy on our ride home, & decided to take some time to stop and pop off a few photos.

MRK GRM

The other day I had my good friend Mark Grime come up to the city (SF) to muck around the city on our bikes. Here’s some shots that I snapped off while we were riding the dirt jumps tucked away in Golden Gate Park.

TRAINING GROUNDS


Every Thursday is bike day @ California’s largest skatepark (Lake Cunningham). So Ed Laforte, Matt Montoya, Alex Blanco, Devon Lawson, & I decided to drive out there to put in a little session before the sun went down. Street footage will always look better, but damn skateparks are fun to ride.

FEELIN’ IT, KILLIN’ IT


San Jose is quickly becoming the Fixed Freestyle meca. Ever since Ed moved to SJ, him, Montoya, & the rest of the local riders have been pumping out edits on the daily. Peep out their latest flick. Featuring: Devon Lawson, Alex Blanco, Matthew Montoya, Anthony Combs, E. W. Laforte, and Randy Velasquez. If you didn’t know what’s been going down in SJ, now you do.

iMiNUSD SUMMER 2011


Jeff Dempler, Alex Blanco, & Devon Lawson put in work for this little iMiNUSD Summer Edit. It’s always great seeing video pop up of riders who haven’t gotten much screen time. Blanco has been murdering fools w/ his barspins, and tuck no handers lately. Be sure to check out THIS little edit they put out a few days ago.

Top 10 Photos










Here’s 10 of my favorite photos I pulled from the archives to get some content going on the new blog. The “Slumworm blog” has come to an end, and from it’s ashes comes this co operated blog where each of us can upload our own content. Bookmark the page, do whatever you have to do, but be on the look out for more media coming out the WHEELTALK blog.
