Our boy Jeff Dempler won the best trick contest with this perfectly executed Gap to Feeble 180 down the hubba. This is arguably the cleanest trick I’ve ever seen him do, which is probably why he walked away w/ the win. Big thanks to BHSK for putting together this animated gif of it, head over to iMiNUSD to check out more.
Bomb Hills Speed Kills did a pretty killer job covering the event, and personally I think the photos he shot from up top the crows nest turned out the best. Partially because of the unique angle and brightly lit background, which creates great contrast. BHSK has an established style and overall consistent look to his photographs. It’s the style of the photographer that tells you who shot it without having to read the photo credit. Check out more of his photos from the Pro Comp HERE.
Bomb Hills Speed Kills was at the event getting photo coverage of both days of competition. Here’s a shot that he took of Jeff Dempler from up in the judges booth. I feel like this was the 1st time I rode w/ Jeff in a while. Need to get him up in the city more often. Head over to Bomb Hills Speed Kills to check out more of the action.
Here’s another photo from the 2012 AFC Uproar that I pulled from Alberto Fox’s Flickr. I spent most of the time shooting video, and only took a few photo’s that day. Which is why I was stoked to see so many photos popping up from all over. Xup’s are another trick that I haven’t done in a while. I still need to check out the new skatepark they just built in SF, hit me up if you wanna roll w/.
Here’s what I guess you’d call “the official video” to the 2012 AFC UPROAR Comp that went down last weekend. I teamed up w/ SKYLMT‘s very own Colby Elrick to cover the Pro Competition on the final day of the Expo. Shooting off of 3 different cameras, we were able to capture most, but not all of the truly amazing shit people were doing. I’m not sure what else to say, so I’ll just let the video speak for itself.
Alberto Fox brought his camera to the 2012 AFC Uproar and caught this nice flick of me throwing a tuck no hander during one of the heats. I especially liked this photo because of JeffyD and his girl lurking in the background. Steph was filming from up top the Chrome Truck most of the day. I knew we parked that thing there for a reason. You can check out more of the photos Alberto shot HERE.
Here’s a shot that Lance Jeffrey Skundrich took of Devon Lawson throwing a quick barspin at the 2012 AFC UPROAR competition. Devon has the fastest barspins in the game, every one of which is dialed beyond belief. For those who have seen him throw em’ already know, but for those who haven’t, imagine butter melting over a pile of flapjacks on a warm autumn day. It’s kinda like that. Check out more photos HERE.
Our good friend Lance Jeffrey Skundrich was at the 2012 AFC UPROAR hanging out and taking photos of the riders during heats. This photo of Anthony Combs kicking out a Superman came out looking too ridiculous. Although he didn’t land it, he sure as hell came close. If anybody is going to do a Superman on Fixed, it’s going to be Combs. Check out more photos HERE.
LockedCog took this photo of me hitting a 540 from the judges booth moments before the Pro comp began at the 2012 AFC Uproar. I was real stoked on the ramp setup this year, and was even more glad that it didn’t rain. I rarely ever get to ride ramps or transitions living in San Francisco, which is why it’s always a pleasure when I get to shred these pop up parks. This event really made me want to start riding Skateparks again, I haven’t thrown a 540 since the days of the Wheel Talk Compound. Check out more of the photos that Kris took HERE.
IMINUSD posted this photo of the 4 of us at the 2012 AFC UPROAR at the SF Bike Expo on Sunday. The couse this year was real solid, and for the 1st time they didn’t have us tucked away in the back of the Expo. I think everyone can agree when I say that the best part about these events is getting together to ride with all the homies. Read more to check out the final standings (more…)
