Swamp Wood Skatepark Grand Opening.

Oct 29th the FL BMX, Skate, and Scooter community joined together to welcome the opening of Swamp Wood Skatepark. Locals and legends rode together for a day of awesome shredding and fun. A huge thanks to everyone that had a part in making this dream come true!

Off Colonial, in the streets.

Colonial drive is a very large street in the middle of Orlando and it happens to have a lot of good spots. Some are classics while others haven’t been ridden by many people. I decided to hold a jam going along this street in order to bring everyone together and show them these spots. It was a great time none the less and I’m stoked on the bmx scene here! Thanks to the sponsors who hooked up product for the jam; Shadow Conspiracy, Subrosa Brand, Mr.Bikes and Boards, Grindworks, and Dead Krow Army.
