Each Friday, Deco is doing a featured product/riding edit. Today Chad Degroot does a little handlebar scraping to show the Deco Pac ends.
PAC ENDS BAR ENDS
100% USA materials and 7075 USA Materials machined at Profile Racing in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
USA style with the flush bolt design to clamp, not stab the bars, in polished look. Pac Man clamp is the way it should be to hold tight, thick to make the transition to grips smooth, and strong as all hell.
Every Wednesday the Vans park in HB opens the bowl to bikes all day for free. And bikes only!
It’s great to know that in going there I will run into all my friends and meet new ones as well!
So here’s some photos of those sessions of myself and Larry Edgar and Ross Lanier.
The worst part was that we lost a friend I met through shooting wave photos.
Brad Honda who passed earlier this month at 33 years old. He was one of the nicest people I’ve met through shooting photos and I hope everyone who he impacted (including myself) changed for the better.
His attitude was so loving and forgiving…he was also a big wave fanatic. He would go out on the biggest wave days and come up laughing.
Featured here, is a photo I got of him on about a 15 ft face wave he rode last summer. As you can tell he got destroyed once this wave closed out on him, but damn this wave was huge. I remember being so nervous watching it roll through…
This is the last few years riding from Florida to Louisiana and Wisconsin. Even Indiana. Lots of instagram and FB which gets overlooked or skipped. Here is a mash up from street, park, and tons of flatland. Enjoy.
“Today I rode the best I have ridden in a long time. Once the session was done I sat down and thought I need more tricks. But the whole day I did my normal tricks and added some twists and extras to them. Took me a minute to realize I am moving on as of today. Decided to expand on these new twists from now on and my list of stuff to do is getting bigger. Another great day in many ways…42 years young and still learning and progressing with a smile. Thanks.”

By this time of year in Florida, it can be pretty heated up already. We’ve been super lucky to have cool nights, and semi warm days lately, making riding that much better.
I spent my last few weeks pretty typical to my standards…. Bmx, adventure, surf, demos, ect.
One of the main instances that stands out, was RV camping for 4 days, while doing Bmx Trickstars demos at the Levy county fair. We spent our days riding bikes, cooking out on the grill, chatting about random nothing’s and just having fun.
Some other highlights were:
Riding Trey Jones house for a solid few hours, with him and his brother Jabe. Just simply fun. No trying to outdo each other, no bullshit, just good fun cruising with friends.
Also, any day in the woods, is a good day. I met up with some Matt Coplon and Jared Eberwein at the grapefruit trails, to film and shoot for a Dig Bmx / Profile piece were doing.
Welcome to second installment of our new Profile X DIG BMX DIY documentary Series.
Over the course of the year, the Profile crew will be hitting up a selection of DIY spots to document the story of their creation, maintenance, and perpetuation.
The Rooster Den is tucked into a historic neighborhood near downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida where Alan Shirley (owner) and his partner, Beth Jordan, invited us over for a session.
Let them walk you through the details of a slice of paradise created by thrown away pallets.
We hope you enjoy.
Riders: Riley Jordan, Mark Mulville, Alan Shirley, Steve Osgood and Matt Coplon.
