Happy New Year!

With this one being especially close to my heart with the decriminalization of a certain left handed tobacco at midnight.

Merry Quistmas

Quist Quest Fest Trailer - More BMX Videos


In 24 hours, I will be waking up to start my journey back to California. And by journey, I mean a quick 2 hour flight that leaves at 6:30am. I only bring this up because I'm excited to be home and re-united with my favorite bmx knuckleheads (as said in a Charles Barkley voice). Here's the trailer for Quist Quest, I heard some gnarly shit went down and should be a good watch on Friday and a great note to end 2010 on. MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

Joe emailed this over with a small description, Ruben IS BMX. Watch and learn.

Catching up with Ruben from joe rich on Vimeo.



"At this point in time, what more can be said about Ruben Alcantara that hasn't already been said . . . With the just the mere mention of Ruben's name, something stirs almost instantly inside you . . . yeah, you know what I'm talking about. I feel very lucky to be able to call Ruben one of my best friends. Whenever we get to talk, he always puts things in a way that leaves me thinking about what he said, long after the conversation is over. His thoughts and views are inspiring and refreshing, to say the very least. So I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you, some of what has been going on in Ruben's life as of lately. If you've ever wanted to have a sit down with Ruben, here is your chance. Grab a hot cup of something, and press play, and enjoy !"

Santasquatch Canyon

You'd think I'd be posting Jackson's sweet ATX/PHX/LOL/BRB vacation, but first order of business:

Merry Christmas! Number 25 brings back some fun memories with the most poisonous animal in the kingdom.



Okay, now here's the video of a rad trip I totally missed out on. Enjoy!

Old videos are the best. If anyone has the ability to copy DVD onto a computer so i can post them on the Internet let me know, I have a job for you. Im guessing most of this is 3-5 years in age at this point, still golden

Jumping the Bandwagon...

It's pretty rare that we post original riding pictures on Country Clubbin', but Kyle Emery-Peck was on hand to help us out. I've added his page to the links on the right, check out some professional level photographic radness.



Old Timmy turning tight ones on an old fort.



I'm pretty sure this had something to do with me breaking my frame, even though the clang from riding off a bench brought it to my attention. This is what I get for jumping on the Giants bandwagon at the last possible second, and having a Texas Rangers colored bike.

In case you've been living under a rock...

CULTCREW/Jordan Murdock02 from Cult Crew on Vimeo.



I feel this was good enough to post late, as a reminder of how rad Jordan shreds. He and Anthony are on a long wild west excursion now, so this is the most we've got of either of them until they come back. Yeeeeeeeehaw!

The Hunt For Shred October

The Hunt For Shred October from Andy Maguire on Vimeo.


Squeezing this in at the last minute, here is some footage that has been going down over the month of October... with a little September thrown in the mix as well. Cisco did the beat, bet you can't guess which part though. Happy Halloween!

If you looked up 'Barn' in the dictionary...


The newest Country Clubbin' Oscar winner is nearing completion, and I promise, it will be better than this picture.

This Is Constipation

Finally finished that dump of mine, and holy hell, what a ride. That's exactly how I felt after watching this, minus the pooping. Questionable whether it will ever truly replace my loyalty to the ODI Longneck, but I might want to give these a shot since Pac. Ave. is likely to start carrying them. I think I have one more post to get out of the way, since I'm sure a lot of you are pretty tired of pictures of shorts with blown butt holes slowing down the site.

I had no idea this kid was getting hooked up by Fly, but I'm glad. I've been a fan of this kid's riding and posted a few of his earlier web vids, but this one definitely consists of some crazy weird shredding. Nollie 180 to smith to full cab? Nose press on a wall to excorcism? Snapping more spins than a Maine lobster!

CULTCREW/ Garrett Nilsson 01 from Cult Crew on Vimeo.


Yeah, me and Garrett go way back, and it's rad to see him getting the recognition he deserves... Wait a minute, that's what Kurt probably would've said! Anyways, dude's a shredder and has been blogged about on this site enough to be part of the Country Clubbin' Crew. And you know how exclusive country clubs can be.

P.S. I love blogging and pooping at the same time. Bless the man who invented wireless.

Nate Delp

Nate came out to Santa Cruz with some friends a few months back and is a certified solid dude. Saw this edit of him on BMXboard figured it best to extend the membership of the Country Club. Simple and stylish, from a person with a good appreciation for old school Nick programming.

Eat My Shorts

Based on the buckets of water that have been dousing the 831, Fall has made its dramatic presence known. Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I've worn pants while riding the good ol' parking garage manual pad. So to send off shorts-wearing weather, here is a tribute to some of my favorite pairs of shorts that finally tattered themselves to the gates of garment heaven.


The greyboys with the half glute salute


Cut-off cargoes featuring the pull-out pocket and right leg slit



Oliver Twist Pickpocket Accessible Reverse Pocket


Trust me, you can dig DEEP into that pocket and not find shit


The post-torn rage is gonna catch on, I swear.


I never really understood why my shorts always seemed to tear at the pockets. I can't think of any time I feel on the tops of my cargo pockets (which would probably cause damage to one's thighs), but apparently that was the weakest point on this contribution from Express For Men. Designer shredding.



And the Etnies shorts. I'm pretty sure these were hand-me downs from Tony Campos, which were hand-me downs from Ruben Alcantara. Something tells me I should've put these on Ebay rather than in the dumpster.

It smells like Bigfoot's dick! part II

Here's part two of Jackson's Least Most interview, regarding his monumental contributions to the interwebs. If you haven't, buy a shirt. It's worth the money, feels great, and I recently found out that sweat stains form around Sasquatch's armpits after a hard day of shredding. It's super cute. Country Clubbin' loves Jackson Allen.

Reminders


Just in case y'all forgot, the Fun Spot in Santa Cruz is having a jam on Sunday, Halloween. Wear a costume, dooda most, and get some gear. If somebody makes it to HOW6, Fun Spot, and Clayton whilst busting at every stop, I will buy them a 40 of Country Club. It will be a rad time, so I strongly encourage all to make their way out to the 831 on Halloween!

Shredder Salute

I don't particularly like posting random videos, mainly because there are other websites for that and County Clubbin' is probably the last place you should go for up-to-date cutting edge BMX news. However, this dude joins the ranks of James Meliota, Blazeguard, and Matt Olson who've previously been featured on this site for inshredible riding. So today, I salute Matt "Wall Street" Samsky.

1000 Posts, and all I got was this totally kick ass awesome t-shirt!



1000 posts is a whale of a number. It probably looks something like the post below. But our very own Jackson Allen turned Ahab and harpooned himself a blogging accomplishment that I'm sure nobody at Country Clubbin' can reasonably aspire. To celebrate, the Least Most commemorated Jackson's feat with an interview, pictures, video, and inspiring words, globally recognizing Sasquatch Canyon as the most fun you'll have on the internet since this... So let's all give this guy a Bigfoot sized pat on the back and brace ourselves for the 1,000,000th post extravaganza! Woo woo woo wudu

Sushi, anyone?

Today kicked ass! It was raining and too wet to ride, so Anthony, Mike and I went to Bean Hollow State Beach to see a big dead beached whale. It smelled pretty bad, but I'm pretty sure I've farted worse. And then Mike and Anthony went skim boarding in dead whale water. All in all, a great day!

Group Shot!

A child is about to be scarred for life...

Everybody's chillin' on the beach. It was a cold day.

Picnic! Good thing it wasn't a sperm whale!

If you guessed "WE OUT HERE!" as the phrase we are saying in this picture, you are correct.

Skim boarding!

245th Post Extravaganza!


In honor of Country Clubbin's 245th post, I've decided to pack a bowl AKA reveal Derby on PCP to the masses. Messy Murdock and I got to shredding this bad boy the other day, but by the looks of the forecast and the house being built nearby, it may not be hitting for much longer. Either way, 831 has more spots than a cheetah! And if you're dying to find this gem, I'll give you a hint:

Too Many Posts Got You Down?

Refresh yourself with some hot drinks!



or cold drinks!



or breast milk?



Anybody else trying to work at Wendy's with me? I have a feeling Kelly will have a new appreciation for the Youtube search engine.

Kyle Frazier of Epic Proportions

I haven't ridden bikes with Kyle in a long ass time, and this was a hearty reminder that I should. The silent shredder slays the streets in a spectacle of spliced editing of spectacular caliber! HUZZZAH!!! Kyle doesn't talk like he's at the Renaissance Faire, but watch him go medieval on spots all over the Bay



Doing the Post

Inspired by Jackson's 1000th Post Party, I thought it would be fitting to put hella posts up since this blog hasn't been updated in a while. So starting off, we have the Salinas jam, which was premiered on Saturday.

Action Swillage

Astro Zombie from Andy Maguire on Vimeo.

Here's a mix of new and old footage that I put together for Action Village/Vital BMX's video contest. Judging by my inability to be 14 years old or double whips, the prospects of this doing well look very grim. Oh well, it was fun riding and filming again. I want to thank all the homies for coming through with the cameras and the time, because I know it can be a pain in the ass sometimes. Anyways, happy Friday and remember the Salinas jam on Saturday!

Respect the coalition

A constant continuation of the Socal Coalition-Connection. Now, if those lazy assholes would just come up here and ride and drink a beer once in a while.

fuck yeah technical G!

I figure you guys were finally tired of seeing those knocks, so here's some pertinent imagery you might want to know about.



Salinas jam was a hit last year, especially when new socks are up for grabs. Fox sox = pure comfort.

SJBMX x Country Clubbin': This one's for my raccoon homies! from Chris McMahon on Vimeo.

Driving up to UCSC usually requires a right hand turn at Mission and Bay, the location of a hot new burger joint called Burger. (with a period). The prospect of eating a burger from Burger. was going through my mind the whole session, but when Budman said he'd buy me dinner for going Rider's Ready down these stairs, the choice of eating concrete, dirt, and/or deer shit was soon replaced by tender organic grass-fed Humboldt county beef with bacon, avo, and jack cheese.

It's Friday and I couldn't be happier. I hope everybody's weekend is loaded with big and fulfilling things...

September 8 - National Birthday Day

As it turns out, I got too excited and Kelly's birthday is actually tomorrow. However, it's this towel's birthday today, the man behind the Country Club, Mr. Triangle Head. Happy 24th birthday! Oh yeah, my Mom turns 60 today too. Sweet.

P.S. Happy birthday Mario from Salinas. I know everyone is going to give you Watermelon 4Lokos, so I hope you live.

SFA

New t1 built up - brakes? gyro? Happy birthday to K-BONE, I thought we had the same B-day? Probably gonna try to have a drunken bonfire or something this weekend if anyone wants to drink too many Pacificos and play with fire, gettin' old.

this is an entry from Steven Hamilton's blog, I wonder if he'd be down to post on countryclubbin?

"This morning I was at Buckeye Donuts and I was sitting outside after I ate my breakfast croissant egg and cheese sandwich and there was a milk carton on the bench, like in the middle of the bench just sitting there. I wanted to sit on the bench and I was going to move the milk carton, and but then I thought wait why is there a milk carton just on the bench by itself. Is it possible that it's really a bomb? I took a stick and threw it at it but it didn't explode but I still think it was a bomb so I called the police when the cop came he said I was out of my mind that he could have me arrested for making such a stupid phone call but I said well i think it's a bomb because there is no reason for a milk carton to be sitting right in the middle of the bench by itself. I dared him to touch it though so he said look and picked it up and threw it in the trash."

Twenty-Turd Boithday, Nyah

Sometimes, I can't believe I know this guy. Happy 23rd birthday buddy, looks like you're doing well! Hope you stab a whole lot of broads today!

I rarely take photos for some reason, unless they wind up as a cell phone picture taken on a whim, so here you go, some recent travels and pictures.

This sign made my day. Middle America is so advanced!








Here we are in Madison WI where something exists that isnt known to the west coast. The magical free ATM, you put any card in and it gives you money without taking any from you.



here we got a b-tad photo in SC

BRUNO!!!

Untitled from GREENFILMS on Vimeo.

Just saw this epic webvid of Bruno Hoffman on The Come Up moments ago. This bro always comes through with some savage moves, plus Country Clubbin' seems to gravitate towards We The People riders. Perhaps a coveted link to their website is in order. While we're at it, here's another rad edit of Bruno, tearing ass per usual!

Tricks and Treats


Going down for the third year in a row. If you're sour about not winning anything, then you can always recycle the cans/bottles, which would probably amount to an astronomical sum. And if you don't have a costume, you are a barn. This was linked from Mario's blog. More details soon...

Sasquatch Canyon may have their blasters, but let's not forget about Kelly Blastello. Real men ride 3 foot quarters. I've been riding again, got a job, and Spin Doctors are playing tonight at 8:30. Let's get some fucking Dr. Pepper and have a sleep over!

Mark your calendars...


... or get whooped. Last years You Better Show Up Jam was rad ass fuck, so you know this year it's gonna be even better. I'm waiting on another flier for the Santa Cruz Halloween contest, but keep that one in mind too. Crazy Chris puts it all in for these jams, and the results are always fun and outrageous. So reserve September 18th for some Salas shredding. Here's Mike's video from last year, just in case you were a punk and decided to not show up:

Healthy Living, with Scott the Punk


Santa Cruz loves Scott the Punk, AKA Scott Buchanan.
Shortly after watching the video below, I came across this article which was a good read. Scott drinks cold milk on a hot summer day and he's from Nottingham, AKA where the Sheriff of Nottingham taxes the peasants like mad. But instead of taxing his health, he gives good reasons on being yourself. PSA's with STP in the near future? I sure hope so. If anything, I hope he comes back to America and works out with Mike.

I was too young to realize what was going on...

Stoked to see this video up, and apparently Budman has a few more oldies-but-goodies up his sleeve. I think I was like 12 or something watching this video, and the concept of Burning Man was well over my head. I just thought a chick with a robot dick was funny as fuck. Birdwell and Joey G kill it, not to mention that one guy Bryan Nicequist or something. Nor Cal Ballers!

Saw this too, figured I should post it. Joey Chernoff is a rad rider and has been rad since riding green Diamondbacks in boots. Guest appearances by Colin Moyer, Sean Seiling, and Sprinkles. Maybe somebody else too...hip.
