Chris Silva’s been down in the States for the last bit touring around with the Animal crew and shredding some Jersey spots. Powermower tap on a DIY set up, shot by Corey Kuhling. Watch out for a travel diary post once he gets back.

Brandon Webster on Texas Concrete

Brandon Webster was down in Austin, Texas recently to finish up filming for his part in ‘Any Means Necessary’ with Charlie Crumlish. Brandon reportedly threw down some wild shit while he was there and even managed to put together this exclusive park edit for The Come Up. Press play and watch Brandon get down on some Texas concrete and watch out for his part in ‘Any Means Necessary,’ it’s gonna be nuts!

We sent out a couple dope prize packs to two events that are going down this weekend up here in Canada that you should get out to if you can. The Repset crew are putting on the Mayhem jam at Skatepark West which will include a game of footdown and an organized Sev Run. All the way out in Parksville, BC, the 9th annual GT Jam will be going down at Parksville Skatepark in memory of Justin Gair. Grab your bike, have some fun and support your local events!

Welcome to the Team, John Alden!

john_blog_post

We’re pretty stoked on our team from top to bottom but when you get the chance to add another great rider and person to the roster, it’s hard to say no. That being said, we’re stoked to welcome Calgary’s John Alden to the family. John has been killing it for a long time now and has become a solid fixture in not only the Calgary scene but in Canada as well. Watching him roast a great concrete park is something to see and his street chops are just as dialed. John just built up a fresh Borato V3 with CKS forks, 9″ Tabarnak bars and some Defgrips, check out some pics of his whip below and be sure to peep his team page for some dope photos shot by his girlfriend, Kim Procyk. Expect to see more from John soon!

Chijioke, up rail to boost.

This past weekend was a blast even though the weather wasn’t too sure what exactly it was doing. The grand opening jam at 3Ride‘s new Toronto location was so much fun; everyone shredded the backyard ramps, hung out, ate some BBQ and got a bit swirly. Thanks so much to Ty and everyone at 3Ride for putting it all together! Chijioke was in kill-mode for the rest of the weekend putting some finishing touches on his welcome edit and Jack Leonard got some dope clips as well. Check out some more photos after the jump!
