It’s Super Bowl Sunday and we still don’t know who’s playing. This is the second time we’ve filmed one of these videos and it never stops being a riot. We ran into a bunch of wheelie boys, tossed around the old pig skin, and came up with a couple plays of our own. Press play and check out some screen shots below.
A couple weeks ago we all met up in SF and drove down a dirt road to this DIY skate spot we’ve been wanting to ride. We set up camp, hydrated, ate pizza, and shredded until the sun started to set and the fog rolled in. The mix of quikrete and graffiti made the ditch as slick as ice and took some getting used to, but after about an hour or so everybody figured out the footwork and was back in action. This definitely wasn’t the easiest spot to ride, but that’s what made it rad. We all had a killer time and are already figuring out the next trip outside The City.
Anytime we link up with Dave Beard, there’s magic in the air. Sparks fly, time stops and occasionally we’ll shoot a photo or two. All jokes aside, Dave is one of the most brilliant photographers I know. He rarely makes his presence known, and acts like a fly on the wall shooting things as they happen without coordinating with the people in the image. The results create a truly genuine depiction of the moment and have an incredibly natural feel. If you’re just surfing the internet, then I highly recommend you head over to his blog to check out more of Dave’s golden turds.

Living in San Francisco sometimes makes it difficult to find a nice open space to ride. More often than not we end up riding in the middle of the intersection in between changing lights and passing cars. Making due with what we have without pissing off too many people in the process. It’s all a part of residing in the city I suppose, but sometimes I wish we didn’t have to deal w/ other people’s problems. Here’s a couple shots of Josh Boothby from when we were riding South of Market a few weeks ago. Josh jammed his finger pretty bad this day and had to make a trip to the hospital to get it worked on. He still has a couple weeks of healing before he can get back on the horse, but we’ve already been talking about our next video initiative.
Nothing brings a family together like the Super Bowl, and we couldn’t agree more. For this year’s big game, we hit the streets of San Francisco for a day filled of false starts, interceptions, city poop, field goals and the occasional trick or two. I woke up Sunday morning, made a couple calls and met up with the dudes downtown where we rode from the late afternoon until the sunset. This is what you can find us doing on any given weekend. Read More and check out screen shots from the video below.
With another solid year behind us, we figured we clean out our closet and release SHREDWELL2 to the public. Filmed over the course of 2011-2012 this 38 minute long, full length motion picture features riders from the Grime Team as well as other influential members of the FGFS community. Stop what you’re doing, press play and enjoy. Happy new year from TURF & Wheel Talk.
It’s a wrap folks. After a couple weeks in the editing booth this is the official coverage of the first Harness The Gnarness Jam in Oakland. Big thanks to everyone who came out to ride, film, kick it and make this event such a good time. It couldn’t have been done without you. We plan to make it a series of Jams hosted by different riders in the city of their choice. So keep your ear to the ground because this may be the first, but it certainly won’t be the last. Check out some screen shots below.
Joshua Boothby brought his bag of arial acrobatic tricks with him to Ride & Style this year. I think it’s safe to say that he has backflips on lock, but his flare attempts were even more impressive. Does anybody know if there’s been a successful flare done on fixed? I pulled all these screen shots from clips that Omar Sebai and Zane Meyer helped me shoot at the event, be on the look out for the video tomorrow.

If you can’t tell or haven’t already heard me say it, I’ve been sifting through and editing some old photos that didn’t quite make the 1st cut. This shot of Josh Boothby hopping clean over the handrail at The Island here in San Francisco. Terry B is off to the left taking a photo on his phone from the comfort of his 20″ pop a squat. I’ll probably be sharing a bunch of older photos in the next coming weeks, so keep it posted.
Here’s a couple photos that TerryB took of all the homies hanging out at the Man Up or Shut Up pre party a couple weeks ago. We spent the night listening to music, watching old fixed videos, and drinking heavy thanks to an endless supply of free drink tickets. It’s not very often that we’re all under one roof, which probably explains why things got so rowdy. Check out more below. Photo Credit : Terry Barentsen (more…)
