    i remember the first time i got some vans.haha.i was like 7 years old and my mom took me to get some new shoes and she pointed to a pair then asked me if i wanted those.i said no and pointed to a different pair. they were vans.10 years later i've never bought a different brand.they're the shit! super comfy and styling!

    my favorite memory of bmx....is probably everytime i hop on and go ride!
    it just takes me away to a place where i just block out everything else in my life and can actually go and have some fun.

    My favorite BMX memory has to be from a couple summers ago. Everyone around here used to just ride up to the local track and hang out and ride all day. It wasn't much but we made the best of it. I remember waking up everyday going to the track and knowing I would see my friends there. They were always there. I bet iIcan still go up there and still see some of my friends just hanging out and riding. That has to be my best BMX memory.

    A lot of people have different memories of bmx. Well here is mine. My favorite bmx memory was back in 2008. It was the end of the summer, on a saturday evening when I decided to go to the skatepark. As soon as I got to the skatepark I drop and started riding. First I got warmed up to do some tailwhips up a quater. At the time I was very fond on bunny hop whips, not that I could do one. It was just that I thought it was a really cool trick. A couple minutes later thea bmxer and his friend come into the skatepark. The guy drops in and does a tailwhip over not to big of a pyrmid. This was in the first minute he was in there. He then pops up out of the ramp and introduces hisself. And I was like dude was whip he was like ya man. Then I asked how long u been ridin for. He said 9 years. Approximately 10 seconds after, he cruses on flat ground, then does a "bunny hop tailwhip". That was the first time I had ever seen one before and it was totally awesome! It was so dope that when I saw it, and I swear it was in slow motion. Seeing that trick gave me so much motivation that I was inspired by bmx.
    That was my favorite BMX memory.

    One good memory I have about BMX is going to the mall one day and I see a trailer set up in the parking lot with a quarter pipe set up on the side of it. It was Eddie Fiola and Todd Anderson busting out mad air on it. Todd was blasting 10ft One footers and Eddie was throwing down flatland tricks. That was such a great day. I got my picture taken with Eddie that I still have to this day. It got even better years later now that I'm friends with Eddie on Facebook.

    My favortie bmx memory was my first year at woodward. i was in cloud 9 riding with seth klinger, ronnie napolitan, will thompson and a bunch of other guys. i was in the middle of learning tailwhips and they gave me all these tips on them and wouldnt let me leave the park until i landed one. well we all sat there for 3 hours til i finally got one. it was just really cool knowing they took that time outta there day to help me out.

    i used to rollerblade and my friends were bmxers. one day my friend called me over and he had dirrt jumps. i felt left out because i couldn't ride cause i had rollerblades. one day i brought my crappy bmx bike over and was clearing the jumps. i can say i was kind of showing them up. from that day i started biking and loved it. in my first month of riding i ended up loving more but with 17 stitches in my leg and my head from riding street. i finally got a new bike and started riding the flow on my bike. i have only been riding since april and i've got a lot of tricks down. i would say my favorite momnet was when i cleared my friends dirt jump when they couldn't

    My favorite bmx memory was the day I landed my first 180 because I heard that the road fools rock and roll tour was coming within driving distance and had never tried anything other than small manuals and low bunnyhops before that. I was so excited about landing the 180 that it was all I could think about during the over an hour drive to Eisenbergs in Plano, Texas. It was the first time I had ever seen a bicycle in a skatepark in person and I was mesmerized by how high everyone was going, I could just imagine how excited I would be if I ever could do those things and it made me really anxious to try so I've been riding ever since. Also having Ryan Nyquist standing in front of me and seeing Morgan Wade do multiple tire taps to front flips into the foam pit blew my mind, not to mention seeing his future wife riding the 11 foot halfpipe which after all these years I still won't touch was an incredible experience.

    everytime there is a good new about Mike Aitken's recovery is a favorite memory. When I saw Steven Moxley doing a barspin to footjamwhip on a 8 ft quarter a few months ago is a great memory too

    My favorite memory is getting my very first bike without training wheels and jumping the curb in my front yard, and trying to see how high I could get.
    Good times......
