Jaoa Danaikrit just released another one of the sections he put together for Can’t Fool The Youth 3 (CFTY3). This one features Dew Sippawit and himself riding around South Korea after their stay here in The States last year. Jaoa does an incredible job capturing the spirit of the trip with good vibes & good tunes the whole way through. I appreciated the fact that there was a healthy mix of not only solid riding, but b-roll shots of the culture and the places they saw along the way. It made me feel like I was right there along with them as they explored what Korea had to offer. Check out some screen shots I pulled below.
Jaoa Danaikrit just released this video from his & Dew Sippawit’s stay here in the states last year. They surfed the couches at our house in San Francisco for most of their trip and stacked up enough video to put together this recap which was used in Can’t Fool The Youth 3. If you haven’t already seen the full video, then I suggest you head over to Chop Em Down and pick up a copy of this limited edition press. I’m stoked that he took the time to put together a hardcover book to come along with it using. Jaoa nailed it with this one combining a perfect mixture of lifestyle and riding footage, the splendor of which almost brought a tear to my eye. Check out more of Jaoa’s videos over at A Tunnel Films.
With an endless sea of new terrain, we’ve been putting in work uncovering and uncapping spots for the betterment of the community. Here’s a few black & white 35mm photos that just came back from the lab of everybody hanging out and riding in Oakland last weekend. Dew blasted a huge toboggan across this stair set, landing on just the last few steps while MTS filmed from the side. Ed Wonka came through to shred and remind us why tooth hangovers are his specialty. And Devon Lawson and Jaoa Danaikrit shared some ice cream. Check out more below.

Dew Sippawit has been staying at our pad here in the Bay Area and whoever else has a couch fit to surf. We’ve been doing a lot more riding on the East Bay this year and have discovered a whole new array of spots in our own backyard. Be on the lookout for photos and videos coming form their stay in the states. Until then check out this photo that Jaoa shot of dew posted up next to his SKYLMT in Oakland’s China Town.

With more than 30 riders from all over the world competing in the freestyle event, things were bound to get wild as everybody geared up for the 2014 Red Bull Ride & Style. Each year they mix up the course and this year they really out did themselves creating one of the best flowing layouts to date. Everyone brought their A-game that day as they stepped up to the plate to empty out their bag of tricks. Elliott Milner brought was linking together lines on the park like he’s ridden it his whole life. Jakob Santos hucked something huge off just about every object there. Joe Mckeag showed everyone what it looks like to ride transition, and Johnathan Ball wasn’t letting anything go untouched. There’s too much that went down for me to even begin to discuss, so I’m just going to have to let the video speak for itself. Read more below to see the final results. Thanks to Dave Beard for shooting the photos for the thumbnail.
With only hours left on the clock until we release “Word Is Bond”, we decided to give you a final taste of what’s to come. Here’s a bunch of screen shots from the Friends Section in the video. Showcasing riders from all over the world, this collaborative effort is something that you won’t want to miss. Check out more screen grabs below. (more…)
Either Dew Sippawit has a twin or I need glasses. I took this photo of him while we filmed for his SKYLMT Part after last year’s Red Bull Ride & Style. With this year’s R&S rounding the corner, I’ve grown increasingly more anxious to see everyone, and need to start getting a head count for who will be staying at our pad. The city can haterblock the Federal banks as much as they’d like, at the end of the day there’s nothing that’ll stop us from riding this gem of a spot. Challenge accepted. On a less relevant note, I think I see a Zane beast lurking in the brush.
Riding street in New York with Dew Sippawit gave me a whole new outlook on how Fixed Freestyle should be filmed. I’ve been focusing on capturing the commuter side of riding fixed, by shooting more follow lines through the city of on the curb off the curb type tricks. Dew is easily one of the most talented riders out there, and never ceases to amaze me with how dialed he is on a bike. Here’s a photograph of him posted up next to his custom built SKYLMT frame in New York’s China Town.
Dew Sippawit started doing turndowns on Fixed the day before we left for New York. So when we went to McCarren Skatepark in Williamsburg to warm up I had him pull a couple look backs for the camera. I’ll slowly be posting up more photos from our trip to NY over the next couple months, so be on the lookout for those.
