Original comment: Up in Smoke shoot was shot at St Lukes Church that was Built in 1890 on the side of a hill in Abercarn, this impressive church was shut down in 1980 after suffering many years with problems with its roof. I managed to get permission to shoot here and this was the out come enjoy.
Original comment: This video is about my exploration of a trick concept that has always been very challenging to me: the whiplash. In the opening scene I experience complete muscle failure in my lower back from pushing it too hard. The rest of the video is a testament to what can happen if you keep pushing yourself past your pain, your fear, your injuries, and other set-backs. You are a force. Don't let anything stop you.
Original comment: Today was a good day.
My friend @SavaSavichev and I decided to ride a session in the local spot in Moscow - Perovo Plaza Park.
We both love the autumn, so we are not afraid of cold weather. We had a great ride, and filmed a few lines.
Enjoy watching! Please, share it ;)
Original comment: VANS athlete Matthias Dandois is without a doubt one of the busiest riders on the planet. His traveling schedule is one of a kind, and it´s beyond our imagination that he still manages to push himself and the sport on such a level. Competing is a big part of it; this year, he even managed to score his 5th Flatland World Championship title, and the 2016 season isn't even over yet.
We were fortunate enough to have Matthias at VANS US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach this summer, where he rode flatland demos next to the pier, supported his homies at the Van Doren Invitational BMX contest and generally dove into the typical Cali vibe.
Join Matthias on a regular VANS US Open day and get a glimpse of how his routine works on a daily basis - from waking up and having breakfast, to taking care of emails and taking photos at the contest, to riding demos and even chilled solo sessions on the beach. And also, meet Suzy the Dolphin, Matthias´ new partner in crime.
