Something we can relate with all to well in New Zealand is surfing in the cold. For more months of the year than we care to admit we’re covered in rubber with awkward shoe things on. There is solace to be had when we see others going through the same. The best part is Chippa makes it look so damn good. Chilly tubes, arctic airs and a breezy open throttle comes as we start to drop the mm and hang up the hoods.

From what seems to be a constantly changing mix of events to the TV ratings driven push towards things like Mega Ramp. The balance of positives between a wider exposure giving an increase to the amount of people who might get into BMX versus the mis-representation of what BMX is really about in order to help the NAVY recruit more from middle America.
The collective outcome of three months work with riders from brands like Cult, Mutiny, Fiend, Primo, Lotek, Primo and Subrosa, ‘Brighton Ain’t Ready’. A project put on by the people at Seventies Distribution in the UK, it sees some of the biggest names in BMX converge on the city of Brighton each with their own unique take on the area.
Dakota Roche returns with a banger of a video for the second instalment of Nativeland. The concept to search and utilise the surroundings of your local area and keep everything at home. Even in an area as covered as southern California this just goes to show with the right eye and skill set there is so much more to be explored.
