christmas ’09

This is probably the best present I could give you. Watch this and get stoked for riding in 2010! I got some forks with brake mounts and am dedicating the next month to learning dom machs on a quarterpipe.

Or at least it looks self filmed… this is so simple and well put together. Jeremy just moved to Vancouver and has been riding new spots and exploring the city – there is substance in this edit that conveys that really nicely. He’s able to create that feeling in subtle ways, and I like that. The new presence video is going to be amazing.

Another Connecticut video. Tom Kalmanidis lives in my town, and is awesome. He went to Boston a bunch of weekends ago and I assume that this is what came of it.

These banks in providence were in Road Fools 4 and 14. They are ridiculously steep and I have no idea how people do tricks on the sub. I vaguely recall Chad Kagy doing a barspin onto the sub in 4, and Chase Hawk did a few things on it in 14. Providence is a really cool old city; it’s not too big and there are a bunch of video spots within walking distance. I added a couple of city photos for atmosphere. I particularly like the middle one – my friend Chris was in town and he had a wide extension that fit on my camera. It’s a little out of focus and there’s vignetting, but that perspective on buildings looks awesome to me. The purple tint is apparently what happens when you put film through airport security and things go terribly wrong. It’s actually kind of interesting.

I snagged this off of Facebook. Ridgeway is awesome – maybe my favorite dude to watch ride in ’09. Photo by Kurt Murseli.

This is Seth Bernard, who is from around here. Most of the spots are around here too, and if any of you ever come visit you can ride them. Video by Matt Horak.

This Dig cover was brought to my attention in the comments, I think by Ricky Adam (unless there is someone else named Ricky that works at Dig, or a Ricky Adam imposter). It’s a really nice Ryan Worcester photo, and it gives you a bit more perspective on how steep the bank is. The rider is Jared Zorowski.
