This week was cut short do to Dew tour food poisoning. OH man could I describe this in detail but I won’t describe the fluids loss and amount of pain this caused me. If you know you know, if you don’t, you have no clue. So with that said YES there is coverage from Dew Tour in Ocean City which was pretty dope, great weather, amazing BMX, and Team Frame rider TA taking home 3rd place with his clean smooth style. Coplon had the pleasure of a sweet covered pool pocket session before getting the cops called, nothing happened…all talk from the neighbor. Pick up the new BMX Plus to see it stacked with Deco deliciousness throughout the whole issue care of Chris Arriaga. Tsutomu celebration continues… Check the dudes face-book. And your moments of Zen care of Mullet, Darryl, and Chad relaxing in OC. Go get that weekend like it wants you to…get me pics. Enjoy bubs…holla back next week. -Chad D Continue reading

This is my cover shot of FREEDOM magazine in Germany. Was on a Standard trip and while at a skatepark I blew up my back tire so I had to borrow Dave Freimuth’s bike, all virgin white. Chico clothing style, baggy as hell shorts, stupid face hair…but doing the pedal boogie for a cover.
