April 2015 crew of BMX riders went to the middle east to undisclosed locations in Southwest Asia and Africa to entertain the troops for 15 days. Here is a small sample of what went on, how the troops reacted, how the crew entertained themselves, and bringing BMX to the Middle east in the big sandbox.

Eberwein: Handling the drought with care.

“It’s been a good march here in California, warm weather is on its way, but I should probably say hot weather is on its way. Our winters are never freezing and restricting like east coast weather. I’ve had some awesome beach days with my pregnant wife, right around the corner and that dad life will start for me. I’ve had a couple shows and traveled to some different skatepark. The one thing I’ve done most his month has been in this past week. I rode my harley sportster over to my friend Ben Wallace’s place because I bought new exhaust. We had planned to swap out exhaust and do a couple other mods, but one thing lead to another and before we knew the whole bike was apart. We had all kinds of ideas flowing and went after all of them. My sportster is still currently apart, but I just need one last piece of the puzzle to be completed, then off to the powder coated for the final thing, then time to assemble and ride on a whole newly revamped bike. I’m excited and grateful for Ben’s help on this journey.”

Bmx Plus: Mulville in print.

Our latest print advert, in the latest issue of Bmx Plus.
Mulville and Matt Coplon went out to the beach of Fort Desoto a couple weeks ago to snap this pick.
It was an old pier foundation, at an angle just bent enough to launch off.
And the barge in the distance was moving slow enough to capture perfect in frame.
We’re stoked on this…

Moseley: Hawaii Part One.

I’ve been over in Hawaii for the past week shredding the skateparks and the beaches. It’s so fun over there on Oahu, I can’t wait to go back and stay longer. Thanks to everyone who made it possible and big thanks to Duane at Bike Factory Hawaii for hooking up a vehicle and place to stay while I was there at my homie Cuylers house in the Waikiki/Honolulu area. Can’t wait for the next time to visit everyone, so here is the first group of photos. Look for more to come soon as I edit and post. Hit up instagram to see even more: @rickyshoots All these pics were shot by Cuyler. Thanks for all the hospitality everyone. Mahalos.
