Jack Leonard is one of those riders who can ride a curb, a bump or a crack in the sidewalk for hours and make it looks so damn good and this edit is proof positive of that. This one's short and sweet but, never fear, Jack's always cookin' up more in the lab. Press play and watch the dude get down and go follow him on Instagram at @rajaclonked.
[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="625"] Chijioke, up rail to boost.[/caption] 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! 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.

This Saturday a bunch of the crew, including Chijioke Okafo, Chris Silva, Jack Leonard and more, will be in attendance for the grand opening of 3Ride's new Toronto store. There's going to be some parking lot ramps, a BBQ, and tons of fun. Come out, say hi, ride with the crew and have a blast!
Even though Chris Silva wasn't able to join us and Greg Henry got hurt, our 'Gene-seeing is Gene-believing' trip down to Rochester, NY was still a blast. The footage collected while we were there will be going toward our 'Any Means Necessary' DVD as well as a couple of other projects but we still wanted to put something together from out time down there. Between Jack Leonard and TM Harley Haskett, we gathered a mix of film and digital, chilling and riding photos and put together a photogallery from the whole trip that you can check out at the link below. Thanks again to everyone in Rochester who hooked things up for us! Launch 'Gene-seeing is Gene-believing' Photogallery.
Our weekend in Rochester wrapped up yesterday and all of us are already missin' the Roc. We had a blast with everyone down there and came away with some rad footage of the dudes. Greg Henry tweaked his ankle a bit on Sunday and had to lay low for the rest of the time but he fired out a bunch of awesome stuff in the first couple days. Both Jack and Chi stacked a bunch of wild stuff including a few NBD's on some Rochester spots. Big thanks to our pal Dave Raffa for putting us up and showing us around and to Tony Hamlin, Dan Coller, Dave Fortman, Ryan Cork, everyone at Blackout for the session and all the other locals who made our stay all the more rad. Check out our Instagram for some photos from the trip and watch out for a photogallery that will be up soon, stay tuned!
Our dude Jack Leonard was down in Cali for a bit to escape the on-again, off-again winter we've been experiencing here in Canada and snapped this dope truckdriver photo with the help of Joey Cobbs behind the lens. Jack's hitting the road with us tomorrow for our 'Genesee-ing is Gene-believing' trip down to Rochester, NY so watch out for a bunch more from him real soon. Check out Jack's Borato V3 chillin' in the Cali sun below.
This upcoming long weekend, we're swinging down from Toronto to Rochester, NY with a crew including Greg Henry, Jack Leonard, Chijioke Okafo and Chris Silva.
