Boyd took a litte trip down to PSA and this video is the result. It’s a bit blurry at times but it’s still a good watch.
Local Trails: Vinewood
Hook Ups: Deluxe, Crucial BMX Shop, Duo, DIG FOUR VICTORY
1. What were the first trails you ever went to?
I guess the first legit trails I went to were Shipham, but before that it was this wild place called Kingswood. It was essentially a big ass hill into this 15ft lip, 3ft long table top. You HAULED ASS down this hill and somehow got about 2ft tops out of the mega booter hahah. (more...)
I had thought that the pictures on Boyd’s Facebook of him riding a scooter were a joke. It appears that they aren’t a joke at all and that Boyd has traded in his Deluxe for a scooter. Up above is his first edit for his new sponsors. I’m still waiting to hear back from him, but from what I can gather he’s really focused on pioneering trails scootering. He’s also become really involved with the dubstep scene and wants to merge those two loves together in future edits. It’s always a bummer when someone moves on from BMX but this one especially sucks. Boyd is no longer posting on Digmore but you can still keep up with his exploits on his new site DIGFOURSCOOTERS.
As much as the wacky weather effected riding here last year it was nothing compared to what they had to endure in the UK. I almost can’t believe that some spots ever got running after seeing the washed out pics of them. If there’s one thing that people who build trails have it’s persistence. Trails end up under water, we drain them. A landing collapses, we build it bigger. A giant tree falls across a line, we chop it out of the way with whatever tools we have. A spot gets shut down, and we are hunting for a new place to build before the dozers are even done. If it weren’t for that kind of persistence trails flat out wouldn’t resist. Unfortunately these days that’s a hard trait to find in kids. It’s so much easier to go ride a skatepark or jump down some stairs. Thankfully there are still some guys willing to put in work to create something special to ride. Hats off to the boys in the UK for making it through last season’s unprecedented rain! DIGMORE!
