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
