Must Watch: James White / White Noise

Need some winter motivation? James White delivers an amazing mixtape part showcasing his year-long efforts no matter what the weather.

As James notes, it covers everything from front-wheel to back-wheel action, including unique pedal grinding scuffing circle k’s. Pay attention to the opposite (1:07), switch foot (2:50), spinning opposite (3:25), and switch foot spinning (3:42) – an untapped direction and trick concept.

The combos featuring this concept are also noteworthy. James’s progression and fun approach shine throughout. He skillfully crafts an engaging video. Share your thoughts in the comments!

Jason Forde: Spoke / Confront your Fears

Something a lil’ different today, Jason Forde teamed up with Film director, Ted Clarke to bring us a short flatland film.

Over to Jason:

“We have all been there, feeling scared or overwhelmed by something that seems bigger than us. But we can’t let our fears control us or stop us from living our best lives. We have to face them head on and do what we need to do to overcome them. Sometimes that means saying sorry to someone we hurt, or letting go of something that is holding us back. Life is too short to waste it on regrets or worries. We have to be happy and grateful for what we have, and not let anything distract us from our goals. We have to be brave and strong, and not let pain or fear stop us from enjoying the ride.”

Giannis Caternellis: Freestyler #122

Time flies, Gianni is celebrating nine years of the Freestyler series with this wild, experimental edit. When was the last time you saw someone take off there seat/seatpost mid combo? How about a no footed backpacker? You might want to watch this one, congratulations Giannis on such a vast tricktionary that doesn’t follow any current trends.

Bobby Burge: SOLO

Some of these clips were used in Watch Out For Robots! by Steve Lapsley. Steve had this to say:

“Well over a year ago work on Watch Out For Robots started. Bobby Burge enlisted Jim McKay to film his part. During the making of WOFR Bobby’s father passed away. This could have discouraged anyone to give up on the project. Instead, Bobby proceeded to put together the culmination of his entire riding career on film. His section of the video has become one of the highlights and most talked about sections of the film. However, it’s only a fraction of what Bobby and Jim put together while filming. This complete edit features not just clips used for WOFR but the unused clips, crashes, outtakes and everything in between.

Matthias Dandois: Magic Box

Matthis Dandois teamed up with Alex Valentino during the summer to shoot this new “Magic Box” edit for Vans. This beautifully shot, and the audio with the tyres gripping the asphalt really gripped me into this one, no pun intended. The banger, backwards no handed spinning switch foot mega spin half whopper to xft inside steam at 3:27, wow! Go watch this one now, if you haven’t already!
