RATPACK &TURF present; Ed "Wonka" LaForte spring 2014

Back in March I went on a mini tour of California with Phillip Arellano starting from Longbeach, to LA, to Fresno, to Palo Alto, and ending in the Bay Area where I got dropped off with Ed "Wonka" and the rest of the Turf crew. After hanging indoors for a few days avoiding rain the weather finally broke for two consecutive days allowing us to go into SF and catch clips. Filmed in only two days Ed was able to nail some huge hammers with ease. filmed & edited by Lucas Bockelmann

Altar boys: JBALL, Cole, and Schual

A few of my favorite young guns just dropped some pretty heavy edits, it's clear they spent a lot of time and effort on these ones and I am beyond hyped for them. Johnathan Ball's Welcome to Bombtrack hits hard with a variety of pegless technical hammers and a few tricks that no else is touching, such as the fakie 360 lawnmower! Stoked. 
Next up is young Cole Ruffing dropping the first volume of his new series titled"Cole Clips." Cole keeps it lose and creative with his next level jib game and quick hops. I really like the security camera vibes to this one, great job Cole!


and lastly is the newest from baby boi Justin Schual. Schual has a different approach to riding than most of the other dudes. Evidence of this can be seen at 1:10 with the 180 fakie ice 180..wow!

Tal Aviv: Ride Fixed Or Die

I recently spent some time exploring Israel. While in Tel Aviv I snapped this, "Ride Fixed.. Or Die Tryin" I was beyond stoked! So sick to see evidence of a fixed gear scene in such a small middle eastern country… But is it a surprise? We all know Israel has spots

FOAD: GANG SIGNS

Jackson Bradshaw and the rest of the boys in FOAD put a lot of hard work into this new 40-minute full length which is seen not just in the riding but in the filming, editing and overall complete production as well. Of course the whole crew killed it; Evan and Izik Service are always pushing it while brining technical skills to sizable spots with ease, Jurassic Parker and Sam Allgood kept it loose & reckless, young gun Chase Davis threw down mixed with a buttery effortless style, Bradshaw rounded it out with his classic smooth inventive style combo'd with big rails and drops. No surprise the Homies section went hard and The Back-to-Track section was nostalgic, almost heart warming. This video brings it back to what it's all about; having fun and riding bikes with friends. I'm stoked to have been able to be involved and contribute to this project. Peep it above or grab a hard copy here with an added 25min+ of bonus footage.
