I’m often left shaking my head at how soft most kids are these days. It seems like the majority of them solely rely on the digital world for entertainment, validation, and their overall happiness. The Halahan kids on the other hand, they give me a small glimmer of hope that this next generation won’t be completely comprised of useless digital device zombies. Stoked to see that post FBM they’ve found a home with the good folks at S&M!
Vinyl’s Tom Arkus put together this truly amazing piece paying tribute to Denis Mowgly. Give it a watch and then check out some words from Tom below.
I can’t even believe that this edit is six years old already! Time sure does fly, luckily Mark’s riding is timeless. Shot and cut by Tom Arkus for Deluxe.
Just in case this weekend’s weather has got you down, here’s a little pick-me-up courtesy of the fine folks at Back Bone!
What a pleasure it was to wake up this morning and the first thing that I see is that the crown jewel of The Backbone Video is finally online. Watch it, get stoked, tell your boss you can’t make it in today, and then go lay some tracks down somewhere!
Ah, the roller coaster that is Hazelwood! Protoz shot these POV runs last summer, so you know that things are even nutty now. Hold on as he follows Popple, Tom, and Yeagle through three of the runs.
For some reason I’ve gotten into the habit of doing most of my new jump testing solo. It makes things a bit nerve-racking, but as stressful as it is, I’m sure it’s nothing compared to testing new stuff out at H-Wood. Rock-paper-scissors is definitely the way to go as far as determining who gets to be the guinea pig. Protoz got the honors of testing out the new Dykye Out jump first, but Tom and Popple weren’t far behind. Via Vinyl
Part 2 of Deluxe’s Woodlanders was the topic of this mornings pre-Dew Tour breakfast discussions, so I figured why not re-up it.
The moment you all have been anxiously waiting for is here! Part two of Deluxe‘s “Woodlanders” series has arrived, and it’s even better than the first! This time the location is the mythical spot known as Hazelwood.
Tom just put the whole Vinyl “LP” video online! How’s that for some weekend viewing material!
