This was up on bmxunion, makes me want to go dig right now.
Charlie Crumlish posted his part from that counts online, there are probably more new variations of tricks in this part than anything I’ve ever seen.
That’s probably what we should have called the video… Thanks to everyone that came out and I apologize for all the problems we had. I know there are a few of you who put some work into this video, to have it shown in black and white with blown out sound was a little disappointing. We were dealing with UAA, I should have known better and been more on top of things.
All that aside, it was still a good time and it was awesome to get everyone together in one place. I hope that we can make videos an annual thing and I know some of you are already excited to start on the next one.
Thanks to Zac for organizing and promoting everything.
I don’t think I thought to put this in any of the advertising, but the premiere is free to get in… I’ll also have dvds there if anyone wants one, they’re $10; there are a couple shirts left as well. The biggest news is that we should also be showing Insight, unless the film club is weird about it, but I’d say there’s a 95% chance… it’s really good, here’s the trailer:
The dvd’s about a year old but they’re selling it for five bucks shipped on the website. I was pretty impressed with the video, so I thought I’d write a review. Bud Dickman (yeah, that’s a real name) is the guy behing perspectives, and from what I know he has some kind of training in video production; the result is that everything looks good and fits together nicely. I think good editing highlights the riding over the production and that’s what I was impressed with in Goin’ For Broke. There were a bunch of sections that stood out, but the last two parts were definitely belters. Ryan Howard basically does every rail combo possible, on real rails… lets go through the list: feeble hard 180, feeble over smith, predator, 5050 to over smith, 180 backwards crooked, crooked 180… there’s a bunch more, I won’t spoil too much. Oh yeah, and he does a smith to over smith on a ledge. Troy Merkle has the last section, it’s really awesome and fun. This part is a year old and there were still a bunch of tricks I’d never seen. I know the last trick is out there and has been talked about so I’ll go ahead and ruin it, he fully does a hang five to barspin, the rest of the part is a whole lot of creative combos involving front wheel tricks, backwards manuals, big rails, freecoasters and a whole bunch of whips to frame (which is possible even better than indian givers).
So yeah, I’d buy this if you’re looking for something cheap, how can you go wrong for five bucks?
