This was a pretty fun day. They rented a whole floor of this downtown Miami office building and had us ride around on desks and get chased by security in the lobby. Not a bad day for sure. XXL is out of Norway and is considered a bigger version of the Sports Authority. So they cater to all sports that is why this commercial has a lot going on.

We decided to make a trip up to Gainseville to ride a new public skatepark and meet up with Matt CoplonĀ  to shoot an ad.

Most of the time if your in the area Jason Levy will sense there is BMX going on in town and find you. He has a weird gift to guess numbers, rub metal smooth, and is currently writing a science fiction novel.

DIG magazine decided to give Jason a full page in issue #79 that just came out.

Dolecki picked out some of the best quotes and interview questions for the mag, but this video is the Uncut version at almost 45 minutes long. If you don’t know Jason, get to know him. Sit down, crack a beer, pop some pills, smoke some drugs, and learn something about the only man in BMX to have ever tried a 180 roof to roof gap while shooting a gun.

Don’t forget to check out his 2nd place finish in Aspire video contest.

Where do I start? I get a call to have me drive down to Ft. Lauderdale for a meeting. This is a project we have been working on for months, so I am pretty excited that we have the green light. Pretty sure I amĀ  not going to give you any of the details, but I will talk about what I did see this nice sunny day. With all the pics below, they do pertain to BMX. Your gonna guess a lot of things, but this deal is going to be pretty wild and big. So I am just gonna brag about the boat I was on and what I saw.

So I show up an hour late, as usual these days. They tell me to get on a boat so I do. Then the boat starts to leave. Ohh shit, where are we going? Just cruising around the area then down to Miami. Crap, I didn’t plan on this, but I am game for the ride on a 55 foot yacht. 8 hours late I can tell you we all drank a bunch of beer, ate some good food, and laughed a lot. Funny thing is this is how this company does business. Makes me realize how crazy BMX will get you in some of the wildest situations and locations.

More to come once I can talk more about it. Till then, sit back and enjoy the view. Continue reading

Mat is always getting around, traveling and doing sessions at skateparks. He has recently been fiddling with a camera to get some footy for the site. Much appreciated.

Not exactly the United video, but I really don’t give a shit. This is showing Mat doing what he does on a daily basis.

We sent him a Flip cam so the footy is going to get better for sure…and with how much he is traveling, the new edit is coming along sweet.

Please leave a comment below with bashing or compliments. Were going to be changing the comment process on the bottom really soon, so get your digs in now. Or leave your web address for Kim Kardasians ass video.
