Jared Eberwein: Dusting off the cobwebs.

“I’ve been conquering some new task everyday, but definitely have had some new highlights going on.
Dusted the cob webs off my bike last week and cruised it for a few minutes. Definitely would have gone way longer, but theres an urge that I still need to control. haha.

Still going hard on therapy, doing as much as possible. Hopping up 4 stairs and back down!!

Heath Pinter was able to get me in touch with his buddy David at Asterisk, which specialize in knee braces. Just got received it the other day, excited to be able to cruise (tires down) around on my bike with some confidence. Huge thanks to Heath and David!


Also visited Freeagent recently and pick up a KHS road bike, I’ve been really looking forward to getting on one of these beauties. Time to get this knee going hard.

Jared Eberwein: A start to July.

“I drove done to SD to shoot for the day with Justin Kosman. It was a productive day, got a lot of photos, different spots, and random clips. The last spot we went to, is called the Gordy Banks. He told me about it, but I still couldn’t put a image to the spot. Once we got there, everything thing clicked. It’s a really well known spot in SD, it’s a great time. It’s really close to the water on a bike path, and there’s a fence that block off the path. It makes for a real tight landing have to turn away fast. I thought that was one thing that stood out to me as a downer about that spot. As I rode it, clearer wasn’t as bad as I thought. You just adapt to it, and enjoy. Right before we were about to shot some photos, I was riding around, feeling it out. I landed from jumping one of the hips, and was slowing down. I have brakes, so I don’t know what I ended up doing this. A lot of brakeless riders will kick their back end out, causing friction to slow down. I was doing that, and ended up kicking my back end out too far, and I got sent to the ground immediately. I got up right away, pretty embarrassed as some random person had just passed me. Think I hurt my hip and hand, started riding right away. Then I looked at my hand, I shaved off some skin on my right pinky where the bottom crease meets my hand. The ground was rough so I understood how easily that happened. Bummed about it, but pretended it didn’t happen for 30 minutes and ending getting some awesome photos that we were both psyched on” -Jared
