JAOA DANAIKRIT by Matt Reyes

I first met Jaoa back in 2007? I was on a three month BMX trip in Thailand, meeting the locals, and searching out the countries best spots. Jaoa was such a shreddar back then it's awesome to see him still riding and pushing the limits on his bike. 

"Jaoa Danaikrit is like a brother of mine and for the past few months he’s been staying at our pad in Portland. I’ve completely lost track of the number of times he’s come to live with us over the years. It’s always for like 3 months at a time. Anyways. The first we did when he got here was built up this bike from spare parts I had lying around the garage. He took to it immediately, and last month we shot this little weekend jammer over the course of well… 2 days. It’s been great having him here to film and search for spots with. I feel like I’m living vicariously watching him ride as I heal up. Hoping to be back up to speed soon so I can check a few things off my list before the Summer is up. Until then I’ll just make Jaoa hit things for the both of us." - Wheeltalk

Getting High Above in Bellingham, Washington

Getting High Above in Bellingham, Washington

My first experience with High Above was at the Fat Tire Farm in Portland, Oregon. As a mountain biker, I am always looking for a better way to carry gear on the trail and the custom High Above packs really stand out. I left Fat Tire Farm without a bag but added High Above on Instagram and have been following them ever since. 

Last week I found myself on a last minute trip to Bellighman with my buddy Eric to ride bikes and disconnect after a hectic month of work. So I reached out to JC at High Above and it turns out he was more than happy to make a bag for me while I was in town!

The 2018 Portland Short Track is a wrap! I had a blast shooting and racing the past couple of months. Huge shout out to everyone involved, all the volunteers, and all the friends that make this race so fun to attend. 

I shot a ton of photos and there are definitely some gems in here! Enjoy. 

Best BMX Video of 2018!!! Dennis Enarson CAPSLOCK!!!

Best BMX Video of 2018!!! Dennis Enarson CAPSLOCK!!!

If your like me you've been either riding or following BMX for a long time. Dennis was one of those kids that burst out in the scene at a very young age. It's been really cool to watch Dennis mature as both a rider and a human being. It's safe to say that Dennis's part in CAPSLOCK will be hands down the best video part of 2018. Do yourself a favor and watch this video! You won't be disappointed!
