Silva put in serious work for his part in 'Any Means Necessary,' an unreal amount of work, actually. So much time spent searching for spots over the years paid off huge. This isn't even the tip of the iceberg. Get out to your local shop and get your FREE copy of 'Any Means Necessary' to see all of Silva's part and be ready for your face to melt.

The dudes at Northern Embassy did a quick 'Setups' interview with Chris Silva that you should go check out. As you can tell from the photo, Silva's filming setup is pretty elaborate so it's in your best interest to go read the interview here to really get some insight into it. Also, if you haven't checked it out yet, peep Chris' part in the most recent ICC video, 'Five to Ten,' and get pumped for his section in 'Any Means Necessary.' Shit is real.
Chris Silva recently built up a fresh new Borato V3 and man does it look good. The raw frame, fork, and bar look tight with some subtle red and white bits. Check out a few more photos after the jump, including a close up of Silva's nuts, and shout out to Chase Davidson for the dope shots! CKS forks. Silva's signature nuts from Animal ready to hit the streets. Connect cranks. Tabarnak bars.
Chris Silva has some dope clips in this edit from the Harvester Bikes street jam that went down a bit ago in the Toronto area along with a ton of locals. Check it out!
Chris Silva hit up the 3Ride Toronto backyard ramp and put a serious hurt on it a bit ago with good pal Steven Moxley. Press play and watch the madness!
If you're in the Toronto area tomorrow, be sure to hit up the ICC video premiere going down at the infamous Dufferin Grove skatepark. Our dude Chris Silva and the rest of the ICC crew have been putting in work in front of and behind the lens on this for a bit so it should be pretty dope. Get out there to ride and hang out with the dudes and catch the video!

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! Brandon Webster, boosted fakie bar. Chris Silva with one of the wildest footjam variations ever, the candy jam. Shit is seriously so crazy. Jack Leonard, burger break. Chijioke dustin' off some ramp tricks. Randomly came across this rail on the way to another spot and Chi banged up a dope clip on it.
