BMX Is Weird

Early this week some guy called Adam LZ tweeted this:

“I’m 100% confident in saying that I've exposed the sport to WAY more people than DIG over the past 3 years”

Usually I’m not one to care what so ever about whats going on in BMX media, I like what I like, ride what I want to ride, and support those who do good things. But when I saw this comment by Adam LZ, I know I shouldn’t have, but I took it somewhat to heart, I guess its because I grew up in the era of BMX where DIG was a very important part of BMX and one of the best things going on in BMX.

New Sheldon Skatepark Christchurch

New Sheldon Skatepark Christchurch

Sheldon Park in Belfast Christchurch is getting a new bowl with construction well underway. I don’t know much about the park other than its built by the same crew as Greymouth & Reefton, so you know the build quality will be good and by looking at the photos above should be a bit of fun.

American Travels With Joe Simpson

American Travels With Joe Simpson

BMX together with travel, I like to think has always been an important part of this blog. BMX is a passport to take you anywhere. So when I see riders from our country at the bottom of the world making moves internationally, using the advantages and privileges of BMX travel, I can say for certain that I get stoked. Joe Simpson has been doing some solid travels over the last few years so I decided to approach him to share some stories & photos, and being the rad dude Joe is of course he was happy to contribute.

Olly Denford – The Black & White Files

Olly Denford – The Black & White Files

I shot this photo of Olly Denford somewhere in Auckland’s North Shore a few years back. It was originally taken for a 2020 BMX Magazine article but during the process of taking photos for the magazine 2020 discontinued, so this photo never saw the light of day till now. It has always been a favourite of mine so I’m stoked to share it, not to mention Olly D is a very rad dude and a pleasure to shoot photos with.

Full Pipe Dreams

Spotted this video from a while back over at the FBM site featuring Eric Hennessey carving through one of Auckland City’s hidden gems.

“Fullpipes are often hard to find, hard to ride, dangerous, illegal, sketchy and also often the most fun you can have with your friends on a bike. Traipsing through swamplands, wastewater,runoff and rubble, like a kid with a treasure map trying to find gnargold, full pipe adventures are more than just getting rad, its the thrill of the hunt, the anxious stoke before uncovering a new or unknown treasure, and in many ways the essence of a good time on wheels.” – Steve Crandall
