Not an official goodbye. In fact, a bit of a hello, but also a recognition that I haven't posted anything here for months. This isn't to say that I won't ever be back here, or that the idea is dead. It's just changing. My energy and efforts have moved, you can still see what we are up to on the Sasquatch Canyon tumblr and I have some projects that I am working on with friends. This site will always remain up as an archive, a place where you can visit some good years laid out in chronological order. Until next time.

Are We Still Havin' Fun Yeti?

The Canyon crew may have gone into hiding for a little bit but we did point the cameras at each other enough to put together this sprawling mix andFBM is kindly hosting this quaint little project. Featuring more members of the Sasquatch family than you can shake a pair of handlebars at: Jackson Allen, Guy French, Nate Delp, Nathan Parker, Mike Hernandez, Dusty Sampson, Jeff Bennett, Chris Riesner, Jordan Murdock, Kurt Siever, Eric Hennessey, Jeff Murphy, Silent Mike and Andy Maguire. As with past videos, I'd recommend pairing this with a cup of coffee or a beer.

Pat Kempany took one hell of a whirlwhind solo trip this year from Portland to San Diego and he stopped by the trails for a quick session. Pat, always the gentleman, sent over some shots he took during the day. Thanks dude! See you soon!

Cement Mix

Eric once told me "People are just animals trying really hard not to be animals." Watching Eric ride a cement park can be a little like watching a wild animal tear through a section of woods. Improvisation, wild cornering and instinct are as much a part of his riding as finesse and pre-planning. The Hennybadger don't give a shit. This is one of the extended features from the new FBM Vagabond Ritual DVD.

Outta the loop

Just got back from 10 days on the road and the internet (and California) appear to be on fire. Country Clubbin' is moving closer to premiering it's long awaited feature length web video. Party?This Matt Freiheit jam features some of us riding at Eric's and an exquisitely weighty soundtrack. Love that Tristan and Steve footage too.

Slaying the Dragon

Chad Osburn came to town with the Kink dudes a while back and had this in mind. I couldn't think of a more likely candidate to get all Neil Armstrong in there. Santa Cruz is proud of you bud!

In the Woods

A couple photos I shot at Crandall's woods almost a year ago. I've got one more week of work and then a bunch of traveling, riding and capturing some time again. Looking forward to seeing you guys.

Buy a shirt, win a giant stuffed animal

Sasquatch Canyon dudes take care of their own. From an email: "I was sporting the shirt at the boardwalk Monday & a worker who is a Sasquatch Canyon fan handed my kid a fist full of game tokens. Then we won something out of the crane machine!"

Earnest Rides BMX

I was having dinner with some friends who were visiting from New York a few weeks ago and somehow one of them described me as earnest. Usually, I feel like "earnest" sounds a little negative in my ears, it can smack of desperation, but I didn't hear it that way. It made me think about my friends, FBM and BMX in general. FBM is a company that sees the heart as one of its defining symbols. It's a group of people that are devoted to riding bikes and having fun, traveling to see new spots and old faces. It made me think that what BMX could use is more earnest people. Earnest about having a good time, earnest about taking care of their friends and their scenes. Crandall writes about this better than anyone.
