Employees of Sessions Session

Greg and I sessioned Mayfair the other week on a windy ass day. We got the session going even though we weren't at Sessions.

This is a bad ass video with backflips.

Jeff Murpheye


The Least Most continues the beers in El Rancho with a nice photo gallery that Murph Lion snapped over the course of the year.  Perhaps the rumors circulating that Earth will face eminent destruction caused so many people I know to get rad this particular year, but either way, 2012 was pretty damn good by God.  With that said, admire this picture of Dusty, watch the video again, and check the Kurt Siever bonus section from "Another Year in El Rancho."  Wait, that's Shaun Hadlington.  Either way, it's  a nod to that honorable Santa Cruz man, Kurt Siever, my favorite tailwhip monkey, the secret weapon of the Country Clubbin' arsenal, and star of the 1995 techno-thriller "Hackers."

Another Beer in El Rancho


Another Beer in El Rancho from Least Most on Vimeo.

It's finally fucking done. Thanks to everyone I rode with, filmed with, and came to party when we premiered. We have a great scene and you all should know that! Bonus fact, this is our 400th post! Here's a write-up Jackson did for the Least Most about the vid as well.

Foreign and Domestic


Crazy Chris has some big premieres going down this coming weekend at the Asylum in Salinas. Did you miss out on the Talk is Cheap premiere at Texas Toast and now regret every minute? Of course you did, so roll to Salinas, watch the video, and get pampered with the new Empire video as well. Bring a rail trick! Let's just hope it doesn't rain all weekend, whether you're gonna sit on your ass watching videos or not.
Also, Abraham Lincoln, Chupacabra hunter, is killing it in this video documenting his trip to Peru. I think he Smith grinded an alien spaceship too. Four pegs and seven beers ago at the Shreddysburg Address.

grEight Three One

Heavily inspired by the new movie, Chasing Mavericks, local riders in Santa Cruz are trying to live like Jay and "GET IT IN." The Hunger Games have officially started, with the help of Nate Delp and his 7Deeznuts. Some pics from a Monterey session, hopefully scaring some old people. Mike Hutch pulling a Tupac by putting out more riding content when he isn't capable of riding. And finally a tribute to that guy Tyler Smith and what he does best - rip around skateparks. I love the GR831!

Master BayteGame

Everybody is getting sick in this post. I for one am sick with a cold, which gives me ample time to find and post videos of your local homies. The Bay is on fire in this one, from the likes of Will Grahn, Lil Mikey, Nick Schwarzenbach and co., and the North 5's. That doesn't mean we're slacking down in the 831 though. I've got some goodies to post of some of your homegrown favorites tomorrow.

More rails than a Charlie Sheen joke

That gets typed just about every time Mesta puts out a web video. So let's try another one. Hmm, flippin crank harder than a crank pusher selling all their crank to Charlie Sheen? No, that's no good. Hittin' the bars gnarlier than Charlie Sheen? Doing his thing harder than Charlie Sheen? Ok, those are all stretches, but the edit is sick. I love seeing people go hard on spots from the Peninsula.

Winston and friends

Going by the alias of a famous Northwest college, Winston Zirjacks infiltrated UC Santa Cruz with a crack team of bicycle renegades, recorded his exploits and became public once he leaked it to the press. I can't tell what his demands are, but I assume there will be more to follow.

Maimed Monday

This post goes out to Hutch, who has a broken hand. Luckily these tricks use bluetooth hands-free technology. Goddamn. Nate Delp pfotograffiee.


Also check out this video of this year's You Better Show Up Jam. I showed up, Dusty showed up, and Caveman showed up; did you? More content, spread out over the course of the week, rather than one gigantic post. Just you watch!

Inspiration

Good morning loyal readers. I hope the following video inspires you to live a fulfilling, dedicated and better life. I hope to be doing a backwards handrail when I'm thirty too. Mike Tag is my hero, and I think he would've grinded the rail in the previous post.

It feels good to be home

After a wonderful and wild weekend in Texas, it feels great to come back to Santa Cruz. Thanks to everyone who rode hard, partied hard, and took our names to the next level. PS go to Chris' warehouse in Salinas, you will have fun.

A Jam That You Better Show Up For


Just a quick reminder that the annual "You Better Show Up Jam" is going down on Saturday at Crazy Chris' new warehouse, The Asylum. That's right, it will not be at the concrete park in Salinas, so make sure you look at the address on the flyer. This will be a good time, and I expect everybody to show up. Even the traveling Country Clubbin' Correspondents like Kelly Costello and Nathan Parker.

Trailer Park Boys

Here it is boys, a little teaser for a longer project that I've been working on secretly. Or not so secretly. But either way, it's coming along well, I'm hoping to be done before Mike's wedding, and want to have a party for a premiere. Who's in on it, boys?

Jibs, Jamz and Jabroniz

I'm constantly impressed by riding, but the new Craig Passero video blew my mind. I can only begin to imagine how hard he'd stunt in our little beach community. So sick.

Craig Passero - Welcome to Primo from PRIMO on Vimeo.


I believe there is a Scott Buchanan of Strongholdbmx siting in this. Blue bike, turndown, backflip, who else could it be? Just kidding, cheers some milk and get psyched on Kriss Kyle too.

Lang Jam
Cisco Jam. 5 pointz is amazing, and I'm pretty sure the money raised was to preserve the graffiti wall of fame that it is.

Anthony


It was a really exciting weekend in Santa Cruz. Not only did Eddie Money play a killer set, Country Clubbin's most handsome rider became a father. Say hello to Jaxon Quiroz. His welcome edit will be dropping soon. Congrats Anthony and Jenny!

Mo Money Mo Problems


He's waiting for you. Come to the 8:30 show with tall cans, possibly shredding fun spot before hand whenever people get off work. Kurt will probably pull tricks there that are more amazing than a free Eddie Money concert.

It's almost that time again. The magical Santa Cruz summer harkens its great messenger, Eddie Money, for his annual blitzkrieg show at the Boardwalk. Friday. 6:30 or 8:30. Be There.

Alpha Frail


After fifty years, Spider Man finally enlisted the help of a side-kick by the name of Andy Maguire, otherwise known as Alpha. I hope it all adds up now; not working a landscaping job, the regular posts on the blog, catching me riding around town during business hours. Let's just say that working for Mr. Parker has it's perks and there really is a lot of down time when your career choice is super hero. On the flip side, I'm protecting the citizens of Santa Cruz County (with some exceptions in Santa Clara and Monterey Counties) from tweekers, bike thieves, scum, and schoolyard bullies. Oh shit, I think I just compromised my secret identity.

Based on this video, Dakota Roche is doing pretty well as Corey Martinez's BMX super hero sidekick. Although I kind of wonder what kind of green, toxic and possibly carbonated goo he had to drench himself with in order to get those lightening reflexes, insane pop, and unmatchable steeze. What could that substance be? And would enough Country Club have the same effect?

Hella Heads to Shred




The Rebel Run Jam was a success, and my calves are still killing me from all that riding. Big thanks to Dave for putting this on, hopefully we'll see some footage of Silent Mike killing it at the jam soon. For some reason, the day reminded me of this trailer below.

Also, check the lil mikey edit from a few weeks ago. Holla!

Rebel Run Tomorrow!


Going down tomorrow at 1pm, Mayfair plaza! 408Dave has the right idea when it comes to jams, so you won't want to miss this one. Below are some pics Nate Delp shot to get you in that street riding state of mind!

Langers

This edit popped up about a week ago, and my god is it filled with bangers. Or should I say Langers! First clip definitely prompted a reaction that included a few expletives of astonishment. Below is the jam flier for Andrew, who recently had a serious accident and needs some help. So if you're in the area, support your local rider, support your local event, support your local scene. Can you dig it?

Where is Bin Lomond hiding?

Tucked away in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Ben Lomond is a hot spot to ride. Literally. Look at the sweat glistening off the shirtless bodies. Nate Delp captures the fun.

Chris Cross


First up we have a wonderful vid of Crazy Chris and his son JoJo shredding it up in Salinas, like father like son. Rad. Below is Chris Riesner hopping a rail in Santa Cruz. Lastly, we have a quick video turnaround of the Fresno trip the LMB boys did, which I'm very bummed I had to miss because of work. Next time!

As Promised...


Here's the flier for the jam that 408Dave and the rest of the crew are putting on. Should be a good time, as was the last jam. Mark your calendars. Below are a few pictures Chris Riesner shot while we were out in San Jose, not riding lake cunningham.

Do Tha Most Dos

Fourohate just dropped their video from their contest in May. Eight minutes of extensive coverage. This was probably the funnest contests I've been to in a long time in terms of things to ride as well as entertainment value. The street bike sideshow was over the top. Thanks again to Dave and crew for putting that on, it was a blast. Flier for their next event on August 18th will be up soon...

Steven Mack doing the most out at the post office in Aptos! And I heard these things were bumpy...

Salinas Sunday

Can't forget our brothers down south, especially when they've got so many wonderful things to look at! Below is Jordache with a picture perfect barspin, and a couple videos Jay made. Next time I go to CVS, I'll make sure to check aisle 6 for hop whips.

Lil Buddy, Big Content


 While lurking the files of Chris Riesner AKA Chris' Tumblr, I came across this road trip edit he was on that stopped through Santa Cruz. Not only did they shred, but they shredded spots that nobody seems to ride AKA Weinerschnitzel, Harbor High School, and the other spot right by Harbor. Very stoked to see that kinker at Harbor get dealt with in this video; it always seemed like a monster that could be tamed.
He was also nice enough to send over some photos from last year when we sessioned some spots in Scotts Valley.

Backyard Boogie

More like backyard shit your pants! Jackson wrote a sweet article for the Least Most about the crazy ramp set-up of Norcal's most stylish rider, Tristan Adams. Click this link and be impressed. I think I want to ride that spot more than any other skatepark in California, especially considering the current state of the fun spot. Check below for an old video of Tristan killing it and a newer one of some familiar kooks doing the same. Happy Friday morning!

Outsourced Goods


Alex displays very clearly that he could get to the princess' castle without fire, a racoon suit, or even a star that grants invincibility. All it takes is four pegs. Crazy grinds to grinds to grinds. Amazing.

I greatly enjoyed finding Waldo Allen amongst this sea of degenerates.

Weekends are anything but weak

video

Sometimes you gotta get out of town and do things a little differently. Thanks to Jay, Mario, Troy and Leo for showing us around the Bay(Monterey Bay, that is!) and Anthony and Mike for driving and letting me roll. Also gotta give props for the local boy Ron Dub in this video. No thanks to Lame Cunningham skatepark for only letting us ride for less than half an hour. Last time I checked, the sun stays up a little bit longer than 7:30. Embrace your Monday!

Eureka!


Originally posted on the old Solid Bikes website, this video really stuck with me for some reason. But after Solid re-did their website, I was never able to find it again... until now! It's times like this that I feel like Gus Chiggins, mining for gold. Thanks google!

Doomsday



So far I've seen no signs of internet doomsday. If this was the last web video I'd ever get a chance to see, then I think overall the internet served me, BMX, and the rest of the world pretty well.


And if the world wide web collapsed into a heap of particles, pixels and codes, then make like this dude and go on vacation with your family. Where's the beach, bro? Photo credit: Lydon George

Rebirth of Slick...ledges that is



Made this quick edit for the LMB boys. They should be re-vamping their website soon, so check them out when you're not out on your grind. It's good to be back in Santa Cruz.

Keep it Slick



Got a video of the LMB boys down in SoCal heckling the world. Jordan and Crazy Chris are to be seen, as well as the rest of the bay cats. The trip looked fun, I've linked them up to the side of the blog too in case anyone wants more info. I'm a fan of the jams and trips these dudes have been doing, and I'm happy to say Santa Cruz will be sliding a lot smoother in the near future. Holla!

Sprinkle Me!



Joe Mednikoff AKA Joe Sprinkles AKA Joe Energy Drinkles coming through with some shit that my girlfriend would only describe as "Flippy whippies." Love seeing this dude send it! However, I get this nagging feeling that liquid nitro isn't a safe substance to consume. Wasn't that what T-1000 was made of?

Re-elect Tony Campos



Tony dials in the SoPro and brings you some awesome bay shralping.  I'm guessing this is the scrap footage to Che Holt's follow up to "Vision," which should be released sometime around summer 2153.  Rumor has it that Tony will also have a secret hover-scooter section, which we've all been dying to see.

Jib-roni's

Two posts in one day, this doesn't happen very often. I guess that just means when I'm blogging, I'm slacking. If only there was a way in which I could say "When I'm blogging, I'm stacking." Anyways. I came up with all these clips featured below, made a few cuts and turned them into an edit. Cisco killed it on the song. All that's left is to hit the store for a cold Pacifico, in case your fine liquor retailer fails to sell Country Club 40's.






Be sure to check out the Bama edit and United/Eclat flier below, in case this was as far down as you planned on scrolling today.

The British are Coming, the British are Coming!

Words once bellowed by Paul Reverie, Santa Cruz now faces it's own British invasion on Monday, May 28th, 2012 at Pacific Ave. Bike shop. None of the United/Eclat riders are British, but United as a company is founded with Limey blood and led by King Ian Morris. Should be rad, hopefully more details soon.

Also a sweet video of everybody's favorite Alabama Tranny, Bama. Good shit, more lines than a Charlie Sheen joke.

This one goes out to all the mothers out there who make our world a more beautiful place to be. Below are some pics of the nurturing mother of shred, Derby Skatepark, in the midst of a very exciting makeover. And if that doesn't get you psyched for the summer, maybe this will.
