LDG just posted up some sick photos from the CANT FOOL THE YOUTH fixed freestyle video magazine premiere back on May 26. This weekend marks the 3rd. and final premiere at the iMiNUSD store on the 23rd. I know I will be traveling up north for this one and to film some other projects that I am working on. I hope to see many of you out there this Saturday. #youknowWazgood
Here is a short video recap of the Can’ Fool the Youth Video video magazine premiere at LDG on May 26, 2012. Today marks the second premiere showing at Midwest Mayhem 3. This was a fun filled night where friends, fellow riders, and fans got together in Huntington Beach, Ca. to celebrate the making of this video by Zane Meyer. I know that this will be up for sale soon via chopemdownfilms.com so be on the look out for that.
Its about that time again and Midwest Mayhem 3 is about to kick off this Saturday June 9, 2012. This years event is shaping up to be even better than last years. With riders making their ways across the states by plane and car you can be sure to see some killer footage from this comp when all is said and done. I was able to snag a few pics off instagram from Gus Molina, Pissy, and Kris Sundet. I think Kris Sundet’s photo of the “monster truck” was epic enough to say this is whats about to go down in the Midwest. Gus has been working hard on making this years shirts for the comp and I was able to snag some photos compliments of TTH13TTH and he also had this sick video showing off the new shirts. Some epic stuff here for sure and I am sad to not have been able to make it out to this years comp. Look forward to updates on this fixed freestyle event about to go down. Not to mention they will showing off two of the sickest videos out SHREDWELL 2 and CAN’T FOOL THE YOUTH !!!!! #youknowWazgood
These shirts will be a only be available at the comp and a very limited supply will be available at the TTH13TTH GIFT STORE.
The year was definitely better than last years RED BULL ride + style. The race course was set up much better in my opinion; last year because of some of the turns on the course you would miss some of the action depending where you were standing. This year they kept everything front and center giving everyone access to get a good view on the action going on. As far as the freestyle course; well I can not say much more than the art work was straight up on point and the layout was set up to accommodate the fixed freestyle riders to put together more creative lines. The format that they had this year was much better letting each rider have time to show off individually compared to 6 man jam sessions like last year. This really opened the course up for these guys by not having to worry about other riders getting in their way. This is the first set of photos I have released from this event and I will be posting the rest later as well.
So I have been sitting on tons of photos from this years RED BULL ride + style and this first set of photos has to be some of my favorite pics so far and I have many more to release still. This had to be one of the most memorable experiences of my life and I have so much more to share so stay posted to MASHAFIX.com #YOUKNOWWAZGOOD
So last nights premier showing of CAN’T FOOL THE YOUTH at the LDG storefront in Huntington Beach, ca. was a huge success. Kids traveled from far and near to get a first hand glimpse of this bad ass new video put together by ZANE MEYER. This is definitely a must have dvd for anyone who loves the fixed gear culture. There is tons of humor mixed in with some good tunes and great riding by some of best professional fixed freestyle riders in the world. I have two parts in this video …. in which im taking some fatty ripz so I was really stoked on that ! hahahahaha ! Also in attendance last night was two of this films main stars; Gus Molina and Josh Boothby who were signing auotgraphs for countless kids and parents trying to get their hands on free swag and a illustriest copy of the CAN’T STOP THE YOUTH dvd. I took some shots of the debauchery inside but I will have some funny video clips from last night as well a little later. I know I have already watched this new movie 2 times since I saw it last night so do not miss out on your chance to preview this video and purchase your copy coming up at MIDWEST MAYHEM 3 ON JUNE 9TH or at iMiNUSD ON June 23rd.
JAKOB SANTOS has been going hard lately getting his practice in for next weeks RED BULL COMP in SF and its riding and dedication like this that will hopefully give him an edge at this years RIDE + STYLE. I do notice his bars are getting way way cleaner … even though he always had them on lock I can still see a difference in his riding and am stoked to see him compete in SF.
Yesterday I got a chance to meet up with JAKOB SANTOS and snap a few pics of his new prototype RESIST FORKS and the new RESIST 175mm CRANKS. This is some big news for the fixed freestyle world. The forks look beefy and the 175 cranks had a long time coming with the negative bottom brackets now a days. Look for lots of stuff coming from RESIST in the near future from new wheels, forks, sprockets, 26in tires and much more !
