Broc Raiford and Hoang Tran got the invite to Ecuador to hang out at El Coca Extremo, a contest a remote jungle town deep in the Amazon rainforest. That sounded awesome, so we jumped on the opportunity and afterwards headed to Quito, Ecuador’s capital and thriving metropolis, for some street riding. Check out part one of this two-part series that focuses on our journey to Coca and our time at the contest, and stay tuned for the street riding edit on Monday.

Texas Toast Jam:

Writing something about Texas Toast that isn’t trite or cliche is practically impossible. It’s not a bad problem by any means because to be honest, everything you’ve seen or heard about the event is all 100% true. During the past three years, more and more people have been making the pilgrimage to the jam to hang out, party and just flat out shred on little bikes.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending all three jams and each year there’s been moments where I got chills and goosebumps from behind the lens. From Aitken’s rebel run in the inaugural event to this year’s Veteran comp, Texas Toast never ceases to rejuvenate my love for BMX. Seeing everybody from my childhood heroes to the latest upcoming superstars, ride and have fun under one roof is absolutely incredible. We had dudes in that lumberyard who were in their 40′s boosting as high as their teenage counterparts!

When I was piecing together this documentary, it was almost overwhelming all the positive feedback we were getting and the best part was; the riding was almost secondary to the vibe. Sure, there were tons of bat-shit crazy moves that went down but the thing that got everyone most psyched was just how the BMX community came together. From all the brands and volunteers that helped make the event happen to the pros and kids who ventured out to just ride and have fun – everyone chipped in and helped put together on one of the best weekends of the year.

If you couldn’t make it out to any of the jams, hopefully this video will give you guys a good idea of what it was like. Thanks to everyone we talked with in the video and to Adam Banton and Jesus Sons for hooking us up with some tunes for it.

Join Aaron Ross, Gary Young, Broc Raiford, and Grant Germain on the most cliché of California trips. The vibe may be chill, but the spots and riding did not disappoint.

Huge thanks to QBMX for helping make this trip happen and to Cranky’s, Inky’s and The Secret bike shops for having us over.

We gathered up some of Odyssey‘s and Empire‘s finest riders – Aaron Ross, Tom Dugan, Sean Sexton, and Tom Smith – and ventured to one of the most interesting and exotic locations we could think of. We ended up with one hell of an adventure, a bunch of stories, a sweet Ride UK magazine article, and this video. I hope you enjoy.

Our own young Canadian shredder Brandon Webster made the trek down to a warm-but-welcoming Austin a couple of months ago to ride his bike outside and escape the brutal Toronto winter. As it turns out, it’s much warmer in Austin. Imagine that.

We loaded up Sean Sexton, Eric Lichtenberger, Grant Germain, and Mat Houck and made the trek to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. There we found warm weather, plentiful spots, cool locals, good times, and bad rap music. Enjoy!

This was filmed over a three month period in Austin, Texas at the 316 (Kansas) House. It includes three of the people that live there, Tom Dugan, Jared Swafford, and Mat Houck plus two that don’t, Aaron Ross and Jabari Winters. This is just a small example of the things you would see while over there. As you can probably guess, their neighbors don’t really like them. Enjoy.

We shot this video a couple weeks after our Texas Toast Jam. JF hopped in the van with us on the way back to California and ended up spending quite a bit of time out here. If you’re ever driving down PCH near Zuma beach, keep your eyes peeled on the parking lots by the coast. You might just catch a heavy flatland sesh going down.

JF’s home in Montreal now and nursing some cracked ribs. Once he heals up though, it’s a guaranteed bet he’ll be hitting the road again. In the mean time, here’s his bike check along with a couple clips. Enjoy :)
