Yesterday a crew of homies attempted to track down a mysterious ditch in Austin Texas. We finally arrived to the destination to find this beauty... our new mixtape "Woah Trick" will have clips from this spot, check out www.gnarniabmx.com for more updates and spot pictures down here in Austin.

Any thoughts on this crazy thing?!

Yeah man down here there's a ton of them, tucked away and hidden from sight. Usually takes a little bit to find the right ones to ride but it's worth the effort.

Here's a few more ditches we found the same day

Haha we were filming a clip for our new mix tape and my buddy ate shit and his bike went into the stagnant water in the middle of the broken concrete.

This is another awesome spot we put some DIY work into, we call it the bacon bowl. And it's practically a ditch bowl.

It was amazing at one point in time because we removed a guard rail panel so you could hop into the bowl from the street with speed, but the city put it back up sadly hahah but we got to shred it for a year or so!

I feel the same way, I think that there are a few riders/skaters who work for the city under the construction development and make this crazy shit happen. Cause honestly some of these are too good to be true.
