If you want to hear how I got my first sponsor, How I came up with the katrina trick, How I got on Red Bull, How I became obsessed with the business side of BMX, How I made BMX my living, How and why I am involved in Real Estate, and so much more! Please check out this podcast I did with Space brothers. I’d say it 100% covers everything and I am truly excited to share my full story in hopes it can inspire someone or just provide a great listen. Please Enjoy and Share!
I just got back from three consecutive trips which entailed breaking my bike down as tiny as possible into an army duffle bag.

The bird. Middle finger. Tall finger. 3rd digit. Flipping the bird. One of two in the pink. Most feel its offensive gesture. Made popular by punk and rappers. Many forms, some half ass and some bold. From a girl I saw today in my review mirror was sideways. My reaction was to boil a bit but access the situation. Lady was trying to go faster and its a two lane road with about 25 cars in front of me. So there is no solution as she may have been boiling more than me. Dreams of slamming on the brakes but that never ends well. Simple brake taps irritated her even more. So my reaction was to use the ebrake as no brake lights come on. So it startled her and more birds were motioned and some harsh words I assume from reading her lips in my rear view mirror. Finally splits into 4 lanes and just assume she would have to pass so I speed up and she barely makes it and what did I see? Baby seat in the middle back with a baby in it. Lady has some problems and anger issues so as she was passing I gently gave her my bird and she flew away swerving into multiple lane changes. Oh what a rushed and stressed morning can do, but I thank her for a few reasons; I don’t know her and never hope to, she made me mad but I used it to write this and research origins and uses of the BIRD, and lastly feelings of anger never win and she made me stronger as a person from a simple interaction at 8am on a Monday. -Chad D Continue reading

1st day of school tradition going to the beach. Kinda parents holiday. Started this last year and why not keep the tradition going. Had time to read, check my phone, and shop on cruise control so why not. Reflecting on this last two weeks and summer and it was one hell of a good one. So good. Hope you would agree with me or if you don’t just keep it to yourself. AH HAHA. Missed a lot of school due to riding and traveling but did finish it with a bit o college. I am not in school but never not learning. Reading more than ever and applying to my daily. Never stop learning and never give up. Scroll down and enjoy. Pretty pumped on this post, packed and stacked with freshness on that Deco tip. Get on for the ride and see where it takes you. Have a good one all you bubs. -Chad D Continue reading
Who’s counting the weeks…its summer. Maybe you maybe me. Lets be true…its not you. Unless you waiting on new Deco goods to arrive. Soft goods in stock and more tees real soon. Pizza is the food of summer and why not. Eat it, ride it all, and be happy. Recap of the contests or jams you went to or plan on going for the next few months. And remember the good stuff. All of it. #decobmx @decobmx and scroll down for some serious entertainment. Ya bubs. -Chad D Continue reading
Hyped to drop this dope full length from Jona Jahchan, who put in work behind the lens and computer to put the Florida scene on…
?”We started this project to showcase some of Florida’s street spots as well as some of the up and coming riders from the area. There is this stigma that ‘Florida has no spots’ but that is because no one wants to put in the hours to find them, Florida is a super flat state surrounded by water so it definitely dampers the selection and quality of the spots. We spent the past year and a half driving throughout Florida, and parts of Georgia to get all the clips in this video.” –Jona
