“Joe Simon’s Guide To Speed Ramping”

Joe Simon explains his methods and reasoning for ramped slow-motion footage citing his Chase Hawk “Austin, Texas” project from last year.

The Most Epic Instagram Slam Ever

The idea was a simple one- do an Instagram Slam at Sheldon skatepark on a Sunday afternoon. Somewhere it got completely out of hand… Probably right when Reed Stark called out the most ridiculous gap to smith ever, and that was less than 20 minutes into the session! I want to mention first that Kilian Roth, in town with Cult from Germany, earned the MVP for the day even with a hefty language barrier and after he ripped his finger in half… You won’t forget his name. Jake Seeley was on a mission to appease his friend’s requests and spent a good deal of time on his pegs. Stevie was ON FIRE- he probably should have had his own filmer. Justin Shorty– the winner of Reed’s bike from the Onsomeshit/BSD jam the day before- adapted to his new ride in no time flat and started sending it. Traffic started to pick up around 1 o’clock and skateboards were flying every which way. People were crashing into things and each other like magnets. When Andrew Castaneda wasn’t busy boosting huge tables, he was pioneering grinds on the A-frame rail. Edwin and Hoder swung through to kick it and we saw Ed’s first barspin all year. Rocco made his presence known with some wild maneuvers that may become his signatures. Austin Aughinbaugh showed up and did possibly the longest smith grind ever done on a skatepark rail. Robbie was there but unfortunately his front wheel was not in working condition so he was forced to spend the entire six hours in a manual around the perimeter of the park… Then some kid punked him out and took his bike on a quick joyride. Brandon Begin snuck a few clips in then disappeared into a cloud of smoke. And then, just when we thought things were winding down, Sean Ricany shows up and shuts shit down- literally.

All-in-all, we are considering this the most epic Instagram Slam ever (we are sure you’ll agree) and possibly #50 in the series… If anyone wants to count ’em, we’d appreciate it. Thanks to Galactic Seabass (and Reed) for helping with camera duties. Thanks to everyone who participated by commenting on @thecomeupbmx. Look out for the next one!

“A Day On 16mm” by Byron Kutchera

“The idea was to shoot an entire BMX “edit” in one day on a 100′ roll (2.5 minutes) of 16mm colour film. Since we only had 1 roll of film we kept the riding simple as each trick needed to be landed on the first or second try.
