Always Cut-Rate fans, from the label though the to the bikes. Here’s Oliver Jones’ Born Free 6 builder showcase video, an overview of his take on bikes and the show, and a preview of his entry, a very mean looking Shovel (also: interesting soundtrack choice with the Keef).
Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…
The followup to part 1 (featured back here) doesn’t disappoint, more of that PNW scenery and some uncrowded and bustling breaks taken advantage of by Trevor Gordon.
Featured by The Selvedge Yard a couple days ago, the recent onslaught of late winter snow and generally awful weather here in the PNW has warranted a repost. Old American Iron, backroads bars and friends, everything about this say summer, which can’t come a moment too soon. Great work by Imogene and Willie putting this together.
Desillusion Magazine proudly presents Road to Nowhere, a behind the scenes movie by Tomas Hein about his latest road trip deep into north Britain as seen in Desillusion Magazine 44.
“What happened to the dream of surfing in remote breaks? The answer is simple: it was always there and all I needed was determination”
Beautifully shot and edited with a great soundtrack, more stellar video content from Desillusion.
While we’ve always had love for Brixton’s Cali lifestyle shredding showcases in season’s past, the recent move to concept/theme vids ain’t so bad either – witness corner store proprietor Jason Jessee in action along with other Brixton regulars in this spring 2014 promo, good times as always from a reliable favourite.
Not to clog the feed with surf today, but I’ve been waiting for this one… Patagonia brand ambassador Trevor Gordon and his truck (the Blue Ox) with it’s camperized accompaniment (Woody) set off north from Cali to Cascadia in search of Bigfoot territory and uncrowded surf. Filmed by Island hero Jeremy Koreski and Santa Barbara native Erin Feinblatt, with direction by Nor Easterner Ian Durkin, this is a truly collaborative venture/adventure, and the visuals are pretty stunning, even to someone familiar with the settings first hand… looking forward to part 2!
Great interview with Quadra Island-based Sam Whittington and his Naked Bicycle co, some of the finest hand-made bikes on the planet. Sam’s client and wait list speaks for itself, and even better is his impressive record of riding, from the human-powered land speed records through to racing Expert in our local cross circuit on a single speed (and always wearing distinctive socks). A Naked road and/or track bike is bucket list material for me, one day… for now, watch and get insight in to soul craft philosophy and why it’s the sustainable route forward.
