Fall of 2009 was when we first put shovels into the ground at my spot. This edit from New Hampshire’s 603 Trails was one of the videos that we watched on repeat for ideas and to help keep the stoke up. Unfortunately these trails are no more, but at least videos of them live on as a reminder of what an inspiration they were.
Zak Earley’s windowless shade van headed off to Long Island in pursuit of good times and dialed trails. They hit some skateparks first but jump to 02:53 to skip all that and get right to the hair metal fueled L.I. trails section. Terra, K, and Supes even make some appearances in it! This has me itching to get back up to The Island asap. Maybe I’ll even finally make it out to Panamoka.
The Credence Ring the Bell Challenge was the first thing to go down on the dirt jumps here at Texas Toast. It’s a miracle people were going as high as they were considering how slow the jumps were running!
This episode of Hanging Foul is a bit of a departure from past ones that have mostly revolved around contest. Corey trades in contest runs for surf breaks in Tahiti with Zak Early. While there may not be any trails in here, there is one hell of a concrete skatepark. After seeing this episode I’m adding Tahiti to my list of places I must visit!
Three things I’ve always been a fan of are BMX, motocross, and Zak Early. This promo for Bell Helmets combines all three of them. Zak talks about what it was like growing up doing both and what Bell Helmets means to him.
I used to love going to the Dew Tours and seeing Zak riding amongst the all the trick ferrets. While everyone else’s only concern was spinning their bikes around as many times as possible Zak would be boosting to the moon and gettin’ it sideways. There’s not enough footage of him these days, so I’m really psyched to see this Bell edit.
