Shredwell2 pre-premiere

Last weekend, while in SF, I took the Caltrain to San Jose to check out the Shredwell2 premiere at iMiNUSD as well as the pre-premiere jam. As expected everyone was killing every spot we went to. One of the the best parts of the jam was seeing all the younger kids throw it down. These kids went hard! Valentin Racho was a real standout with tech skills and true style. Everyone had a good time and I had a blast filming with all the homies again! RATPACK
Shout Out to Peter Chen for getting it on his birthday! 

California Weekend Recap

Here's a lil recap of my weekend trip out to SF during MLK weekend. I had a killer time hanging out there and can't wait to make it back. BIGUPS to Slum for letting me borrow such a sick whip and showing me what's good in the neighborhood!

Matt Reyes is a G

My homie Matt "Slumworm" Reyes just dropped this edit for Specialized Bikes, and it is insanity! Matt is a good friend of mine and one of my favorite people to watch ride, with the most technical and effortless seeming style in the game. Check him out as he smoothly crushes a slew of west coast  spots over the course of 2012. I just got back from kickin' it at Matt's place in SF the other day so stay tuned for more shredding from Matt in the new RATPACK edit dropping soon.

SF for a minute

Yesterday I decided to make a spur of the moment trip across the country from Richmond, VA to San Francisco, CA for the Shredwell2 premiere at iMiNUSD, San Jose. As soon as I got into town I went over to Devon Lawson and Matt "Slumworm" Reyes's place where Slum set me up with this murdered out freecoaster Specialized Pfix for the weekend! Thank you so much man!
If you're in the area come out to the premier today, we'll be cruising around and snagging clips. RATPACK

SHREDWELL TWO: introduction

The Grime recently released the introduction to their full length video SHREDWELL 2, if you haven't seen this yet stop what you are doing immediately and watch this right now! All the homies kill it on such a next level and are always having a wild time. These two minutes and forty seconds get me so amped to ride, I hope they do the same for you.
Oh shit.. and who's that making an appearance in the background behind Slumworm filming on a VX? RATPACK

Sticker Sighting @ Epic Comp

Last weekend marked the end of 2012 as well as the last fixed gear competition of the year, Epic Comp. The competition was held at the Epic Skatepark (yes, that's what it's called) in Sacramento, CA featuring a grip of young rippers as well as some OGs. While watching 5ONIT's edit from the comp I caught a RATPACK slap on who I believe is Peter Chen's whip (correct me if I'm wrong). Chen tore it up at the comp and snagged a smooth line at 0:30 above. Stoked on the West Coast vibe. RATPACK
