Fucking energy is all I have to say about yesterday. Thank you to everyone involved who made this happen and attended.

New Jersey does ATX

Spring is around the corner but when you have an itch it's always best to scratch it.   Chris Girouard and Drew Quinlan escaped a New Jersey March for the more BMX accommodating climate of Austin with motivation to work on Jersey resident turned ATX Josh Babu's next full length "Hot and Heavy."  Please enjoy this visual and narrative journal of events that tend to happen when you visit Austin, TX.

We got the boot with an invitation to come back after 5:30.  Drew R.S.V.P'd on the spot.

Drew learned quickly that recovering from the terrible condition of SBD (Spot Boot Depression) is quickly cured by pedaling around the corner. I learned he is a fellow lover of the feeble hard.

Drew spotted a rad gap to curb cut while taking a short cut through a neighborhood. We got sorted logistically and Drew dropped in.

We did forget a minor detail to make this happen... it was down hill on the corner with a sharp left to another hill and of course there was a car coming but luckily he escaped without incident.

A warm up at House after a java buzz is a must and expect antics such as Aaron Ross filming clips on Big Robs bike. #everyonesecretlywantsfrontbrakes #fontbrakesarethenewcoaster

Get in where you fit in. Sometimes the warm up sessions are the only times the host, filmer and tour guide get to get their fix in. Josh pushes through the corner.

I'm stoked on this and shout out to Big Rob for the motivation. There was a curb set back so you had to hop early and it literally felt like dropping into a water slide tube where you free fall for a sec before landing back down and feeling the G's topped off with hill bomb cherry.

The crew broke apart for the night so Big Rob and I took the long route back to home base and we came across this sculpture that is Delicesque.

Halfway through Drew toying with this set up a campus police officer walked up with purpose as we sat on the steps before the next attempt spot still lit up but didn't stop. About 15 minutes later he came through the door at the top of the steps mid attempt caught red handed and says "so you are the guys I'm looking for using the stairs as your ramp."  Though he was really nice we had to leave. Drew didn't get a second date this time.

People will go this spot and wonder why the hell there are grind marks on a spot that is a very short run out distance from a wall. Because Josh Babu can. Pedal ice

Hassel-Glad in Austin

Drove down to Austin for a week to swim in the springs and meet up with J to ride, a strange blue line showed up and runs the length of the roll but now I kinda dig it.

IG Killed The Web Video Star 1.0

With Instagrams success and popularity of their video feature they have bumped up to allowing up to 60 seconds of motion. Are IG edits going to take over web edits the same way web was to DVD?  We sure hope not but here is a fun little series we will do to add a little zing to our phone clips. 

Thanks to the 10 member boy band "Keyboard Warriors" for providing the track for all videos.  

I'm scared...maybe we should hold hands.

An evening at Lucky 13 Tattoo in Austin, TX with two rad tattoo artists (Pat and Gabe) and two fellow dirt bag BMX riders (Randy and Ryan) who like pain.  Pat is also a BMX legend. 

If you're in Austin looking to get a tattoo hit up Pat and Gabe

No Bake Banana Cream Pie.

image.jpg

I just got back from a little camping jaunt in Butte Meadows, CA with the family. Thought I would share a few photos from the Lil' GoPro and phone along with my new ingenuous recipe  for a camping banana cream pie.  (Maybe not too impressive but humor me) 

Delicioso camping banana cream pie recipe: 

1)  Get a naner

2)  Roast a marshmallow to desired crisp. 

3)  Place roasted mallow on nanner and bite.  

4)  Repeat steps 2-3 until naner is gone.  

Enjoy the outdoors.

Tunnel 5 bridge

Ohhh that feeling when the golden opportunity finds you...or you find it. Probably the latter because nothing awesome just falls on your lap right?!  As I strayed away from Lauren for a few during our hike I found the key that would take us to the top and like clock work the gears start turning. You ever watch that movie "Happy Gilmore?"  Love that movie, such a classic!  Remember the scene after the crazy guy drives the VW Bug on the golf course knocking the tower over then Happy has to shoot this crazy miniature golf carnival shot?  He shoots and the ball rolls through the obstacles everyone's head moves with each move of the ball through the checkpoints. That shit plays in my head every time I find something to climb!  Outer fence; check (cake to climb) 8-10ft ladder blocker; check (I ain't no rookie) and as the next steps play out in your head for a successful calculation your eyes and head pan back and forth like a pin ball. I chuckle every time. 

Anyways I went up solo to make sure everything was safe and sound then came back down to get Lauren so I could share the joy of heights.

On Point - "Life's Short"

A few weeks ago I was digging around a box full of random point and shooters in Austin Camera and came across a gem I have been wanting for a while... a water proof point and shoot, a Nikon Action Touch specifically.  The camera was beefy as hell and felt solid when held so I bought it. There was a little uncertainty if it worked perfectly or had some kinks but I was willing to play guinnea pig and Austin Camera was of course down to help get it running smooth if needed. I got through two rolls with some rewind/advance motor issues and as much as I hated doing it I had to return it before I left Austin.  I was pretty bummed but turned the misfortune into more film.  

Here is test roll number one covering a day in BMX paradise.
