Met this guy today at a DIY skatepark in New Orleans. He has a drum cymbal on his front wheel, a chicken leg for a necklace (which he acquired himself from a once, live chicken) and he talked our ears off about the Mardi Gras native americans. Oh, and speaking off, he has an uncanny ability to bring any conversation to the topic of smoking blunts and its health benefits.
I flew to Taiwan recently to document how Odyssey‘s new Thunderbolt cranks are lab tested and how they stack up against the competition. This is the 69 second long marketing piece I returned with.
Kids in BMX are funny. We posted this up last week and the biggest complaint was it was trying to be too “artsy” with the lighting and it also got accused of biting a series of skate videos I’ve never even seen.
