I enjoy cruising around on a vert ramp from time to time. It's hard to get back in the swing of things though. And vert ramps are pretty rare nowadays too! The Deftones are always a good show, One of my favorites. The first show I ever saw live was Gwar! ... more »

360's were really hard for me to figure out when I was younger. I had to work on them a lot. then one day it just worked. I think you just have to learn to let the lip throw you and position your body so that everything helps you spin. It may take more ... more »

That's a pretty good idea! I'll keep that in mind for the next edit! Thanks! Dean is amazing! I love his riding, but I love that he does his own thing too. He likes blasting quarters, throwing the bars, spinning, but he also whips and can be super tech ... more »

I remember.. you beating me! Hahaha! Well deserved though. I definitely miss riding that place with everybody! There was nothing like it! I've been trying to lease the warehouse out for almost 3 years now and there not many people who need a warehouse ... more »

Thanks Chris! I would really love to. It took a lot of effort and funds to make that series a reality though, and I lost the backing. Maybe one day I can do it again.

HAHA! I hope soon. Need to fix up one of the bikes. I still have everything else though! Let's plan it on the thread!

Well I can say that every time something "new and ground breaking" made it's way into BMX, I was very skeptical. Especially anything on the front end. I would either need to heard that it was trust worthy from someone who rode similar to me, or I would ... more »

I'm not a huge fan of the vulcanized sole movement. I don't think it fits our needs as bike riders. I do miss having a super cushioned shoe though. Thanks! I don't listen to that type of music much at all. I was happy to watch Seth do his thing with ... more »

When I had the option of riding for Haro there were a couple other companies that were asking me to ride for them too. One was Mongoose, one was Morales, and the other was Trek. Looking back, if I had chosen anything other than Haro I would have had ... more »

Nope. Hahaha! But I believe a Miami Hopper drop in could possibly win a contest by itself nowadays!

Oh yeah! I still have a bunch of pairs from all of the years they were produced. Can't get rid of those gems! So comfortable!

I'm not sure how to take this one. Judging from you quote below your question... "I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day. ... more »

Your welcome and thanks for saying thanks! I still think about that trick a lot. I basically just kind of lost that trick and with that lost the confidence it takes to try i again. I did it at the Skylines contest in Paris a few years back but haven't ... more »

Age is really nothing but a number. Plus I feel like I'm still in my young twenties and probably act way younger than that at times. I just try to keep riding, and keep enjoying what I'm doing. I do what feels good and excites me.

That roller was very necessary in slowing you down. It was probably hard to tell but the hill we were riding down was pretty steep so the amount of speed you generated was incredible. if that roller wasn't there and you went into that berm full speed, ... more »

I run the Demolition Vulcan brakes with a little modification on how the cable routes into the brakes. They work really well! I don'y know what made me ride BMX but I can tell you that I loved riding and jumping my bike since day one. It made me happy. ... more »

Yeah I've been involved with a lot of random partnerships through the years. Hahaha! As for the really obscure ones, probably Butterfinger was the best. Cool people to work with and an unlimited amount of candy. Not to mention it paid pretty well too! ... more »

I've never been a huge fan of either, but if I had to chose one it would be NOFX.

Shea... easily. He's always had some brute man strength as well as man hands. My shoulders don't do well at arm wrestling either. Hahaa!
