Ed had some clips filmed in San Francisco over the beginning of 2014 by Ratpack CEO; Lucas Bockelmann.
After not being able to come back out to the Bay Area, Lucas decided to throw this Ed footage together into this solo edit of some street cruising.
After nearly a year of filming with the Turf Mob we’re proud to introduce our first video as a team (Word Is Bond). We spent most of 2013 filming across the US, with riders from all over the world, and have assembled something that we’re stoked to show. Thank you to everyone who helped film, drive, watch for security, buy snacks, and come out to ride. This video wouldn’t haven been possible without you.

When we were planning trips we asked everyone if they had any idea of where they wanted to go, nearly everyone had mentioned Philadelphia so in early June we took Bedford, Castelluzzo, Houck, Simpson, and Wescott there to film and shoot an article with Walter Pieringer for Ride UK. When we were deciding who was going to film the project it was a no brainer. We knew that Navaz was a local and obviously one of the best filmers in the game. Acting as tour guide and filmer he went above and beyond and helped us navigate our way through the streets of the City of brotherly love. During our stay we got to meet a bunch of awesome people including Seth Stellfox. He was a Philadelphia Police officer as well as a BMX rider who made sure we were safe while we were riding in some fairly dangerous neighborhoods. I just received the news that Seth has passed away, because he was so vital in the making of this video we wanted to dedicate it to him. Rest In Peace Seth.

After a long day of shredding hills around San Francisco, we met back up at the Freebord Warehouse, pulled out the ramps, fired up the grill and celebrated by lighting up the sky with fireworks. Stay tuned for our next Factory Jam.
Beginning of 2014, i had the idea to film a video in Super 8mm, without editing at all, except putting a music & the titles.
Everything had to be filmed in the right order, & all the trick had to be pulled 1st try, otherwise it would have been in the film at the end.
I asked Simone “Kid” Barraco since he is one of the most dialed rider on earth. I’m honored he said yes.
As a filmer it was not an easy task but it was 10 times more a challenge for Simone who had to pull all the tricks in one go.
