The let down

so i had the day off of work and was driving around sb to find some apartment complex rails, Ian Munro had reminded me of a parking lot to parking lot rail with a dope drop on the side that i had toothed a wile back for Cody York while he was out here working for bmx plus mag, i might have been 17 or 18 years old so its been a wile since ive been up their, i wanted to re do the tooth for the barbarian dvd but they had taken the parking lot rail out an put a huge building there so i was super let down it was a pretty famous spot Ian had t hanged it an iced it for an old kink video an i know a few skaters have done it too but with all that said here's a before an after shot photo credit Cody York.

Moving Forward

Alright been meaning to drop this after my leave at Giant BMX.



Well first and foremost I would like to greatly thank Chris Arriaga for giving me the opportunity and support to ride for Giant BMX. In the past couple of years riding for Giant I had a great time riding the parts and shredding with incredible talented team members. I recently felt the need to move on, and set greater intentions for myself. Giant to me was in a stagnant state. With the economy being in a downfall it was understandable that it was difficult to renew part production to the BMX program quickly. With that being said I hope to see Giant achieve with BMX products and focus on building a better structure for the riders. I'm excited to see what the future brings for myself. As of right now my plans are to focus on editing the "Santa Barbarians The Quest For The Holy Rail" DVD which should be dropping this summer. And finish up filming for Chris's video he has in the works.
Thanks Giant for everything!
