Going Nowhere - Degrees: This short film was an attempt to get some of the ideas out of my head that occupy so much of my thought process on "regular" rides. Changing up the angle on some old classics. To avoid wasting anymore of anyone's time, whilst I pissed about on esoteric line choices, I decided to go self filmed again.

Williams Lake - Hailey Elise & Micayla Gatto: Hailey and Micayla sampling some classic Williams Lake gems.




Brage Vestavik - B-Rage: A crazy new MTB freeride line built in Norway at Trysil Bike Arena by Brage Vestavik.




Clocked Out - Trevor Attridge: Trevor is a Norco Ambassador and all-around shredder based in Victoria, BC. He’s the kind of guy who will put in a full day at his 9-to-5, then crush out laps until sunset on the gnarliest trails in the area day in, day out. We managed to catch up with him and see what his favourite evening loop looks like. It’s hard to argue with him, a solo ride finishing with a lake dip is the perfect way to decompress.




Dennis Enarson - Right Here: Back in June of 2019 Dennis Enarson set out to make the part of a lifetime; something he and the BMX community would be proud of. The goal was to capture BMX riding that lives on throughout time. He spent 8 months hammering away at his goal. This part was 90% complete before Covid hit and shut down plans for filmmaker, Rich Forne, to come out from Spain to San Diego to get Dennis’ last few bangers. Instead the two finished editing the part from other sides of the world. Anyone that knows BMX already knows Dennis’ explosive energy and zero regard for gravity makes him one of the most savage humans on a bike. And yet nothing could prepare you for the heaviness of Right Here. This is one of the gnarliest parts you're ever going see.




Dennis Enarson - Caps Lock: Dennis has been hard at work on his Caps Lock video for over a year and a half and wanted to try and outdo his Last Chance video part. He went all in to do just that. Dennis brings tech, big gaps, grinds, and air tricks to the next level on street.




Dennis Enarson - Last Chance: Enarson's banger last part from our 2011 Last Chance DVD.




The History of Skateboarding's Favourite Camera: After seeing one too many of our written articles get turned into Youtube articles by rats left and right, we’ve decided to try our own video essay style content. To start off this new experiment, we wanted to take one of our favourite old articles, an investigation into all things VX1000 originally written by Nic Dobija-Nootens for our second book, Jenkem Vol. 2, and bring it to life for even our most illiterate followers. We tapped a dude with a good voice, Alex Coles, to help us visualize and narrate the reporting, and the end result, (while still a little vloggy to keep the kiddies interested) is a good first step toward our total domination of the YouTube blogosphere.




The Tony Alva Story - Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding: One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based "sport" into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva. Tony is now 63 years old, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alva’s brand of aggression and bravado in the 70’s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined. Vans’ The Tony Alva Story chronicles T.A.’s humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over. Written & Directed by Rick Charnoski & Coan "Buddy" Nichols/Six Stair Productions. Starring: Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso, Wynn Miller, Steve Olson, Shepard Fairy, Gus Van Sant, Josh Brolin, Jeff Ament, Glen E Friedman, Robert Trujillo, Brad Bowman, Pete Zehnder, Jeff Ho, Stacey Peralta, Elijah Berle and more.




Perspectives - Ingrid Backstrom: Are you a mother or a skier? Professional skier Ingrid Backstrom struggled with this question when having kids and balancing a career. By pursuing both, she learned that it is only you who can define who you are.




Our Planet - Frozen World: Experience our planet's natural beauty and examine how climate change impacts all living creatures in this ambitious documentary of spectacular scope. In this episode: On the unforgiving frontier of climate change, polar bears, walruses, seals and penguins find their icy Edens in peril.




Yeti Presents - The Ridge Of Dreams: This isn’t the ski movie you’re expecting. There are no epic face shots or gnarly cliff drops. Not even one single, perfect line down a pristine backcountry face. But when you mix the far-fetched dream of two lifelong friends with the unpredictable nature of Alaska, the unexpected is exactly what you get. When permit issues throw Zack and Zack a curveball, they’re forced to make a decision that could put them in trouble with the law, permanently alter their relationship, or both.




Public Trust Feature Film - The Fight for America’s Public Lands: A feature-length documentary about America’s system of public lands and the fight to protect them. Despite support from voters across the political spectrum, our public lands face unprecedented threats from extractive industries and the politicians in their pockets. Part love letter, part political exposé, Public Trust investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through three heated conflicts—a national monument in the Utah desert, a mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—and makes a case for their continued protection.




Throwback to simpler times back in october 2019... Antti with a tailwhip at the magnificent Amos Rex museum in central Helsinki. Can t wait for this Corona shitshow to be over so we can visit all these crazy places again

 Those two doors in the background of the photo look like the world's worst fire escape.

 Have you never heard of Parkour? Late 270º spin from the top door to the 9th rung on the ladder, backflip to parking lot.

 Public Trust Feature Film - One of those documentaries which is a must watch. Its been a while since a documentary about some peoples actions, has inspired, yet riled and disgusted me as well. #keepitpublic

 That bridge in the end of Caps Lock is iconic in San Diego. There have been some underground night races on mtb there, but I have never even thought about trying to clear the whole set. Gotta fly pretty straight. Its intimidating enough just to roll the stairs and not catch a bar on the railings, but to land it straight and continue over the bridge, crazy good, stright flying sir!

Excited. Yelling at screen. How?! To whom must I sell what to ride like this?!
Slackjawed.
Numb. Blankly staring at screen chin in hand. I have no skill.

 Lot's of high consequence riding without brakes or protection. I understand I will never get the BMX mentality, but sliding over cobbles without even a long sleeve seems quite silly. Not sure how rebellious it is to choose fashion over some moderate self protection Wink

 I get where your coming from and I think that everyone should wear a helmet, but I think most other stuff is kinda unnecessary. Barring neck braces for super gnarly stuff.
  • 3 3
 @FloridaHasMTBToo: Necessary is a bit dependent on your viewpoint, I didn't like picking the gravel out of my knee after a rather hard crash during a race and that scar will be there for life.

I see Dennis take a slide over cobbles without a sleeve... I certainly agree it's not "necessary"as he will life, but a nice reinforced sleeve would certainly be nicer, if only for the gravel picking and the tetanus shot Smile

Same goes for the slams on his face... I don't say he should wear a full face and a Leatt, but if it were me I'd rather slide with a BMX helmet than on my bare noggin. Big Grin

Like I said, I certainly am a very different person than these BMX stars, but I can't help but feel it's taking "image" to far and to serious. Big Grin

 @Ronkol: I get it, people come from different backgrounds, and since I come from BMX, I don't see the need for a lot of safety gear. After what happened to Mike Aitken and Scotty Cranmer though, I will always wear a helmet. I don't like getting my skin shaved off, but I really don't want to wear all that crap because when you compare the amount of time just riding to the amount of time crashing, I just don't see the point of wearing pads and stuff.

 @FloridaHasMTBToo: I come from a skate/street background too, and share similar sentiments. Even when I'm hitting big trails I still wear the least amount of protection required, I dont wear gloves most of the time and rarely wear even kneepads.

Always felt more in control and less encumbered when wearing minimal protective equipment. Never had a major injury due to lack of padding etc. either.

 I don't think this is about BMX, as Rogatkin is as good as pretty much anyone on Techy BMX stuff, yet even when he does street he wears shin protectors and sleeves.

And though I might be utterly wrong, I asume you do not huck tailwhips of crazy angles? Riding around and doing some wheelies, fakies and hops is not quite what this guy is doing Wink

 @FloridaHasMTBToo: From BMX as well. I seldom wear knee pads. I seldom read long articles about what knee pad is best in wet climates.

MTB loves gear. Gear on bike. Gear on human. As grown up bmx kids I think we focus on the riding and having a good time. MTB nerds (there is a type) love to have and talk about allll the gear

 @Ronkol: I think pads and a good helmet are more important for big hucks, like some of the stuff from Dennis's edit, but for tech street lines I just don't see why anyone would wear more than a helmet and maybe gloves.
  • 3 0
 @Ronkol: To be fair, there is a good chance he is running thin pads under the pants. I know a lot of BMX guys do.
  • 2 0
 @Ronkol: when did Rogatkin ride street? I only ever saw him throw a couple of barspins in a water fountain once on Instagram- and he just had a hat on backwards then. I wish he would do a full street edit tho.... he’d probably be rocking the squid lid lol

 @jaycubzz: wear the helmet though. I wouldn't be typing this if I didn't, and a good buddy has brain damage from riding his bmx home after work without one. It bums me out every time I talk to him.

 Serious question, why brake less on BMX. I've never understood that. Hell yeah I can appreciate how hard it would be, but most casual viewers wouldn't know the difference....is it for style, to add difficulty, help in some way? The tricks would be just as cool looking and fundamentally the same consequence if not landed...

Teaches commitment, bike is quiet, barspins and tailwhips are unrestricted, you can do lookbacks and turndowns without jabbing yourself with the lever, or worse, putting it in your pocket and then crashing. I take them on and off, brakeless you just forget about stopping and just ride, feels good, especially as a bowl rider. removes the second guessing thing and helps prevent half-assing shit, which can be much more dangerous than just going for it. Brakes in BMX are usually there for tricks, or for guys who Dirt Jump and want to be able to stop in between sets or scrub extra speed.

 @RadBartTaylor: And I add, when you have to put your hands back on the handlebar after a barspin (or other trick) you don't have the lever that bothers you: you can grab the handlebar even more internally if you make a mistake

 @Ronkol I agree with you for the poor use of protections in bmx. But the absence of brakes it is instead a technical choice. In some situations the brakes are more uncomfortable and dangerous. See my other comments.

 Man, coming up short into those boulders on that B-Rage gap....that would be rough.
