    Not trying to be gay and name drop but one thing that made me think damn.... was being in the same room watching Rad with Ryan Nyquist. I saw him sitting there and I was like holy shit...like star struck. Hahahaha. He was always my favorite rider when i was tiny like 10 years old, First bike was a backtrail x1, had his little finger bike (same bike and color I had) with his character, and there he was chillin 3 feet from me. hahaha. Semi-embarassing but whatever. Being not too long ago shows memories can be made tomorrow

    My favorite riding memory is from last summer.
    I went out with my girl. I had my camcorder, a tripod and the most beautiful girl in the whole world. I rode and filmed for 2-3 hours and she loved watching me. I just loved getting inspired by her, the music and the great July weather of Iceland. After wards when we got home I imported the clips I had filmed and was so stoked on the footage I could hardly believe it!
    Love your new shoe by the way.
    Check what came out of those days and a couple more sessions alone here.

    my favorite bmx memory was/is riding with my dad. its always fun to ride with my 45 year old dad and watch him hit most of the stuff i hit. its not very hard to convince him to take me to the trails. how many people can say that?

    man... so many... its like every time i get on my bike i can remember everything... i think my favorite memory of riding a bike was the first time i picked one up and started carving the local bowl in my hometown (back in the day). It was a sunny day and my parents had gotten me the bike for christmas. i didn't really know how to ride it that much (but over the years i got better). then one day i went to the skatepark and i was just ridin around. then a guy came up to me and taught me how to drop in. as soon as i got it dialed, it was like nothing in the world mattered. it was just me and my bike. i, then on learned to do tricks and realized that this is what i love to do.

    My favorite bmx memory is when i first got into bmx and tried to jump a picnic table at the park all my friends and i used to hang out at. A bunch of kids were cheering me on so i get up on the table get going and then i got nervous zoned out ,lost all my speed, face planted, and got my first ambulance ride and stitches. It was actually pretty fun because it made all my friends think i'm awesome

    My favorite memory would have to be the fist time i did a tailwhip (for the first time) down a 10 stair it was the most nerve racking jump i ever did and when i nailed it i felt on top of the world. I have the whip 1 and 2 and i am hoping on getting whip number 3 vans are the only bmx shoe i ride with there the most comfortable and versatile shoe company out there.

    My favourite BMX memory?

    The first ever time I rode, I remember I was shitting myself about going down the halfpipe.

    I did it eventually, and carried on doing it constantly thereafter.

    My hellasweet jump on my pk ripper over almost 6 feet of tires stacked up( at least thats as tall as i remember it-lol). I slowly rode up and dropped into a bowl jump. steep down both sides. I had crashed into the tires about 10 times before. tucked the bike so my ass was on the rear wheel. felt like i was in the air for days. air jordan who. barely cleared the tires and a good landing. the high was short lived as I thought I could clear it better. miss judged this time and front tire wedged in the center of the tires and flipped it. no guts no glory. lol.

    My favorite BMX memory would have to be my first time as an OSI/camp counselor at Woodward West back in 2004. I meet Shawn Dorton who was super nice and he introduced me to Taj and his girlfriend at the time Amie. Shortly after Amie fell in the bowl in the hanger and knocked out her teeth. I was so scared to ride the ramps since they were so slick and after seeing what happened to her. I also met Adam Banton who was really nice along with Hollywood Mike and so many other cool riders. The whole atmosphere was so positive and made you ride at your full potential. Shortly after my visit to Woodward West I went out to California for a while and just rode my bike and stayed at my friend Annie’s house. We went to NORA cup for the first time at this club called ICE in Vegas. We stayed in this shady hotel just off the strip. So many amazing memories that year. So much fun!
