Keith Terra has a piece up on DIG discussing whether or not a broken planet (pertaining to the seasons) makes for better trails. Without jacking their piece and going off on my own tangent about it, I’ll register my two cents with a simple “No.” Head on over to DIG for Terra’s take on the subject, as well as some damn fine pictures from a mid-December session at Keyko.
I had no idea how much you guys liked this top 10 trails web edits thing until emails started pouring in over the last couple weeks asking if I was going to be doing it this year! Truth be told, I’ve been nibbling away at it since the beginning of the month but all the traveling that I’ve also been doing slowed things down a bit. It’s always a pretty tough job putting this list together, but this year was the toughest yet. After going back through 2015’s videos I ended up with a “short list” of a few dozen…
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all aren’t too hungover from all the celebrating that was going on last night. Post are going to be a little slow for the next few days because the internet where I am is pretty spotty. I’ll be back up to speed next week and you can look forward to our annual roundup of the top ten trails web edits from the last year. All that said, here’s our first flashback post of 2016, and it’s a good one if I do say so myself! This coverage of the jams at Baker’s Acres…
This video is titled “Sevs Intro” on Vimeo but I have no clue what it’s an intro to. I was thinking maybe it was from some back in the day Long Island video that I had never seen. Problem with that is that the Death Cab For Cutie song in here didn’t come out until 2003, and that’s a good five years after Sevs was plowed. I’m sure someone out there has the answer as to just what this is from, so feel free to enlighten!
Bring an extra Jackson with you if you’re planning on coming to the Posh Halloween Jam tomorrow because they’ll be selling these new shirts featuring a gorgeous photo print from Keith Terra himself. You may want to get there early because something tells me they are going to go fast!
Keith Terra has a must see photo gallery over on Dig that contains some amazing Posh photos dating all the way back to 2000. It’s really cool seeing how the place has evolved over all these years. I really wish I had some photos from the first time I visited there back in 1997. Luckily my memory is holding up and I can still picture what it was like. Check out Terra’s point of view HERE.
Terra put together a photographic look back on the Panamoka trails that goes all the way back to 2008. Though it’s still an unconfirmed rumor, he also talks about the possible reasoning for the trails being plowed. I don’t even have any words to describe how blood boiling it is if it’s indeed true. Head over Dig and check out Keith’s photos and words on the life and death of Panamoka.
There were so many wild things in this Shawn Real edit that have been bouncing around my head ever since it dropped. He nollied the DMC at Boondocks! As ridiculous as that is, he also 270’d it. Then there’s that case in the beginning so big that Salty Pistachio felt it. I’m still getting chuckles out of that one every time I think about it.
Dig just dropped this Terra made edit featuring Shawn Real. There’s also some photos and a little piece on Shawn that you can check out HERE. It’s pretty funny to me that Terra said that for months they never thought to tell him about the trails, thinking he wouldn’t be interested. I’ve only ever ridden trails with Shawn, but that was way back in the early 2000’s when he was a part of the Stileman Crew. It’s good to see that he can still shred a row of dirt mounds. There’s some street and park stuff mixed into this edit…
This old Panamoka edit that Terra made has been sitting in my bookmarks folder for a few months now waiting to be used for a flashback post. Little did I know when I originally bookmarked it that Panamoka would be gone by the time I got around to putting it up. Such a shame that those woods won’t be seeing good times like this anymore.
