Scott Horton was our San Jose homie who came from a motocross background. We spent a ton of time sleeping over at his house so we could ride DTSJ and hang out at iMiNUSD. Here’s the “Welcome to Sadio” part we filmed of him back in 2011.
Here’s a photo from when Oscar Kahn came across the pond to stay and ride w/ us here in the Bay Area. Although his stay seemed brief, Mike Schmitt and I got plenty of footage of him for Shredwell2. His holographic wrap job looks so fresh in person, and is damn near blinding in the sunlight. I miss Oscar, and can’t wait until his next visit. I heard word of a possible trip to London in March, gunna have to see what’s good with that, and go kick it w/ the dudes from Ninja Cats.
Last week a bunch of us took the Chrome Van up to Seattle Washington to film for the second installment of Can’t Fool The Youth. We were lucky enough to stay at Steven Jensen and Zlog’s house so we didn’t have to sleep in the back of the van. We had such a good time w/ Jensen while we were there, that he decided to say fuck it, and come back w/ us to San Jose. He’ll be staying w/ Ed + Mike while he’s here, so if you see him rolling around down town San Jose, be sure to holler.
Here’s a couple screen shots of me riding this ledge we came up on off the freeway in SJ. There’s nothing better than stumbling upon a spot and finding out it’s all buttered up and ready. I’m just about done filming for a new web edit, and just need to wrap it up w/ a few more bangers. Should be done in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for that coming down the pipeline.
Here’s a shot of Jeff Dempler riding in his current hometown of San Jose California. Nothing rocks my wrists like tucking off huge stair sets and drops, which is why I rarely ever do so. Jeff seems to have no problem throwing himself off this 8 stair at SJSU. I’m digging the look of that golden frame he’s been riding.
I popped off this photo moments after Ed Wonka took down Big Brown a couple weeks ago. You only get one shot riding hammers like this, and one shot is all Ed needed before making it out alive and skidding into the fence below. Either hit it w/ complete confidence or don’t hit it at all.
Jeff Dempler popped off this photo of me hitting a gap to wallride 180 on these brick banks in San Jose this weekend. This is the 3rd weekend in a row I’ve stayed at his house in downtown SJ. I’ve been focusing on stacking clips for a new web edit now that I’m done filming for Shredwell2. It’ll probably be done in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for some new shit on my vimeo.
It’s great having a spot to session that is close to home. JeffyD has a school situated right down the street from his pad in SJ. His girlfriend Steph snapped off this photo of me bouncing in and out of this fence there, just before we packed up and headed home for the day. I love summer in San Jose. You can get an actual feel for “the hotness”, unlike San Francisco where it’s relatively cool all year round.
For the past 3 weekends I’ve been surfing Jeff Dempler’s couch while we catch clips and pictures with the rest of the guys in San Jose. It’s not the most comfy couch on the planet, but it’s a hell of a lot better than sleeping on the floor. Here’s a photo of him hitting an icepick stall on a ledge at San Jose State. Keep your eyes peeled for more media from my stay in the upcoming weeks.
Here’s a couple photos that I took of Mike Schmitt while I was in SJ last weekend. He’s been riding with a thumb swollen to the size of a miniature blimp for a minute now. Despite all that, he still managed to hit this double peg stall at SJ State.
