Suspended Productions had the privilege to spend the weekend with two Southern California locals, Zak Rustigian and Charlie Harrison.
Zak (Left) age 15, has been riding downhill for a year and a half. You may know Zak either by his popular GoPro videos or his Pink Bike user name Z-WAAAAZ. Zak's goals for this year are to become more consistent with Fontana Winter Series this year, and to maintain the amount of time that he puts into shredding! He would like to thank his parents for all the support that they have offered with his newly found passion.
Charlie (Right) age 14, raced Moto for 9 years. 6 months ago, Charlie made the switch to Downhill and he is loving every bit of it. He is currently in the process of joining the Trek development team and has set his sights on placing top 10 at Sea otter and top 5 at the Fontana Winter Series in the JR. Expert class. He would like to thank ODI, GoPro, Rich Houseman and his parents for all the support they have offered so far.
___________"Laguna Beach is practically a bike park, the city bus is the best!" - Zak Rustigian.
Laguna Beach is an awesome spot to ride and film. A major secret and bonus of the area is there is a bus system; for 75 cents the city bus willl take you from the bottom of the hill to the top. Another added bonus is that the Troy Lee Designs store in downtown Laguna which runs free shuttles on the first Saturday of each month. If your in the area look them up; they really do support the riders!

After two long days of shooting it is nice to have a beautiful sunset to finish wrap things up. Special Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Rustigian for accommodating us for the weekend.
