Chris Silva – Solo at Joyride

Chris Silva managed to get a quiet afternoon at Joyride to himself a bit ago and put together this chill edit together for the Embassy. Pegless moves all over the place.

Chris Silva – Ride BMX Edit and Interview

It’s never been a difficult thing for Silva to stack clips and over the course of last year he did exactly that and then some. Aside from his entire DVD section and his recent Ten Pack edit, Silva put together this dope freecoaster edit and hooked up with Ride BMX to feature it on their site along with an interview. Head over to the Ride site to check out the whole interview and watch out for more from Silva soon. We’ll keep you posted on the freecoaster development as well, good things take time!

Silva’s Friday Interview on Ride BMX


Chris Silva was interview as part of Ride BMX‘s ‘Friday Interview’ among a stack of other awesome riders yesterday. They were all asked the same question: ‘Why’s your bike like that?’ This is something very near and dear to Silva’s heart, as many will know, and he gave a pretty insightful answer, stating, among other things that “a lot of riders seem to just chase the same tricks on street while all riding the exact same bike setups.” Read what else Silva had to say here on the Ride site.

Chris Silva and Brandon Webster have some righteous clips in this super chill and fun summer edit that Northern Embassy just dropped from some sessions at the one and only Dufferin Grove park in Toronto. It’s a bit of a tease but summer’s coming!

Chris Silva by Gutstains


When Chris Silva was down in Austin last year he hit up one of the newest ditches the city has to offer and laid down this wild wallride over the channel that people have been calling out since the ditch was discovered. In the words of the photographer, Tristan ‘Gutstains’ Afre, “if you were lucky enough to go to this spot or have seen footage in videos, you might realize how insane this channel gap is. You’ll have to wait for the footage to surface to see how Chris Silva got the speed for it though. Definitely one of the most awesome things I saw go down in 2013.”

Check out this photo and more by Guts in his Autophoto that’s up on Defgrip right now by clicking here and wait to see the clip in Silva’s video section!

New Chris Silva Fire!

Chris Silva had a jam packed 2013. The dude was all over the place and was stacking clips like a squirrel stashing nuts before winter! On top of finishing his entire DVD part, Silva also managed to get enough clips together for some web edits and this Ten Pack edit is the first of those. Press play and watch out for more Silva goodness soon!
