FGFS SUPER BOWL SUNDAY 2015

No Comments VIDEOS



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.

On thursday night we flocked to SOMA Skatepark like a pack of carnivorous seagulls and squeezed in a quick session after work. Attendance at the park is relatively mellow on a weekday and once the sun sets they turn on the lights making the place even brighter than it is during the day. Dee.Rock is a regular fixture here in the streets of San Francisco and always hangs out at the park to shoot photos of the locals shredding. I hit him up on instagram and he graciously sent me a bunch of shots from this session, check out more below. Photo Credit – Derek Chamberlain (Dee.Rock)

Every time I get a roll of film developed it’s like a Christmas present to myself, and this one was no different. I nearly forgot that I brought my trusted 35mm camera along with us when the TURF Mob went camping along the coast. We piled into the back of Dave Beard‘s car and headed to the beach where we spent the day fishing, drinking, and hanging out by the fire. We had to bring Egg The Dog along with us considering the fact that he loves the sand and ocean more than anybody I know. Dew & Jaoa spent a lot of time fishing while they were here and I don’t think they managed to catch a damn thing besides this crab scurrying on the rocks. Check out more photos below.

With the new year right around the corner I took the time today to go through and post some photos from when Jaoa Danaikrit was staying with us in the Bay Area earlier this year. My personal favorite photo from this set is the shot of Jaoa standing next to my Dad (Wheel Talk Team Manager) after a long day at the horse races in Berkley. There’s nothing like betting on ponies, drinking dollar beers, and eating hot dogs while spending quality time with the family. The shot of everybody posted up next to the Rack Solid van was from the day we filmed the “Alameda Send Off” video of the Thai dudes last day in town.

MATT REYES | WALLRIDE B&W

No Comments WT Action Shots

Matt Reyes - San Francisco Wallride - BW 2014
Considering the fact that everybody posts old photos on thursday, here’s some dusty shots that Ramon Antonio III took of me riding in San Francisco a while back. There’s few tricks that offer the same kind of feeling as sitting sideways on a wallride. They’re an immediate go to trick and are a blast to sporadically smash walls on the daily commute around town. I’ve had a couple different run ins w/ SFPD who apparently don’t appreciate the trick as much as I do. I’ve hopped on the curb to catch a quick wallride in the past, then landed and looked up into the eyes of two police officers who immediately struck a pose and attempted to tackle me off the bike. Nothing a little swerve in the opposite direction can’t fix. Photo Credit : Ramon Antonio III

With the rain holding up for the day, we took advantage of the cloudy weather to ride in the eye of the storm we seem to be stuck in. Gus Molina took the ferry into The City to meet up with us and ride around Japan Town. Ramon Antonio & I both stacked a couple rail clips to add to the ever growing pile off footage we’ve been sitting on. Mike Schmitt found this hubba and thought he had a spot until the run up proved to be too short, so we quickly labeled it “wack” and moved on. As quickly as I mentioned it stopped raining, it went right back to dumping buckets and looks like its going to continue to do so for the rest of the week. Check out more photos below, or lurk through photos from some of the other Sunday adventures we’ve had in the past.

This was the first time I’ve been back to Alameda since we moved, and I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic as we rode through our old stomping grounds. It was nice to get outside while there was a break in the clouds and shoot some photos for a change. We’ve been getting an exceptional amount of rain here in the Bay Area, so I thought I’d take advantage of our current condition and splash around in some of the leftover puddles before it goes back to dumping buckets. Check out photos from other lazy sunday’s HERE. Photo Credit : Ramon Antonio
