Chad is great. Amazing rider always pushing things to the next level. No clue how anyone could possibly hate on the dude... This video is amazing.

Eastern has always been a rad brand ran by riders that supported BMX to the fullest. Stoked to see their comeback.

Remember that time you made me drive two hours away from my house to film at some dirt jumps and you didn't get a single clip?

How long did it take you to learn the flair windshield wiper? How many have you landed on a real ramp?
