We’ve been working on this project for the last month and we’re please to announce the release of our first zine titled and themed “Departures”. It’s 36 pages with contributions from across the world in the name of BMX and all it entails. This first issue is humble beginning, being printed from my desktop printer and assembled by hand. Each issue has it’s own nuances (ink stains/color shifts) that make it unique from the others. Grab one here. If you’d like to contribute to the next issue, feel free to email us – pushitastop at gmail.com
The milkshake master steps it up
Booty Groceries comes through again
In this video photographer David Robinson hooks an Elinchrom flash to a drone to get some spectacular lighting on his MTB shoot. I don’t think this will necessarily catch on as a trend but hey, it’s cool and different. Thanks to Zach Honahan for sending this in.

DIG caught up with the one-and-only Mike Manzoori to talk about his current project with etnies and switching between roles in BMX and skateboarding. A couple quotes I pulled-
“The landscape of videos has changed. ‘Grounded’ was a DV project. The level of video production has been raised since ‘Grounded’. We’ve been flooded with amazing toys that are now affordable, so you can get higher level production quality without spending a fortune… I feel a lot more pressure on me to do good. It’s not just capturing the tricks, but telling a whole story. It’s a lot more fun.”
“…the last few years I’ve been trying to shake the fisheye. Every video, skate or bike, has a lot of fisheye shots. It has it’s place, but it’s nice to leave that lens until you really need it and see what else you can do.”
