This month I’ve been flat out and all over the world. I went to Italy for a week of shows for the US military doing school shows and demos at the local skate park, Really fun time but did not get to see to much of Italy itself.
Just wrapped up the 2nd stop of the Recon tour in Tucson AZ, really amazing turn out with over 70 AM riders signing up. I did two days of my boot camp before the event to help with tricks and work on lines with the kids entering. Taught 3 kids back flips and it was so cool seeing them throw it down in their runs. Next recon stop is Ohio dreams July 18th can’t wait.
Right now im at LAX getting ready to fly to france for FISE contest. I have not been to a Fise comp in a few years so I’m really looking forward to it. Follow me on instagram @ryanguettler to keep up with what im doing every day.
Hey Guys !!!
Last weekend I road tripped 11 hours inland to a small town called Cunnamulla 840km west of Brisbane with a brand called Freestyle Now. They got Myself, a skater and a scooter rider on board to coach the kids out west how to ride for a day.
On The day of the coaching the whole town was at the local skatepark to meet us . There was only two kids that owned BMX’s so coaching was a little hard so we put more of a demo on rather than coaching. It is crazy how little effort it took us to make these kids day. I let all the kids ride my bike taking turns, And even taught some of them a few beginner tricks. We were handing prizes out all day long and doing games and playing footy, twiggy etc. Anything to make these kids smile…
I had never been out west before so it was such a good experience.. I couldn’t believe how simple these guys live. There is no movie theatres, theme parks or anything. Just the local skatepark, Pub, Foodmarket & that’s about it. They didn’t even know what a IPhone was!!! We Helped also helped clean swear words of the skatepark and did fun games and gave away lots of prizes on that day.
After the show and demo’s the local kids slid a super cool letter under my motel door they wrote up !! I have attached pics of it. I though this was so awesome.I had the best weekend with a really good crew on board and would do it all again!!! Thanks for the good times Shaun Jarvis.
After spending some time in Europe Andre headed back to Brazil and did a trip with the Dream BMX guys along which sounds like it was a crazy trip then he hit up the mini ramp contest that some of the team rode last year. Andre rode really well and ended up winning the contest so props to him for that, here are a few photos from the comp…
Hey guys, so shits been happening in the Berra of late! If you didn’t make it to the act jam the was on last month, you missed out! So many people, so much good riding. Was awesome to see sooo many people come out to shred or hang out. Aiden Chard took out the act jam crown with effortless flow and big lines, dude just kills it when ever he rides. Apparently the video John Young is working on isn’t far off. After watchin what went down you’ll wanna come next year! Big shout out the Backbone for throwing such a killa event. It’s only gunna get bigger n better.
Speakin of the Bone, we’re well under way into filmin for a full length video. Got a bit banged up on the weekend filming actually. But it’s all so worth it when you actually sting the clip, I don’t wanna share to much but people have been puttin work, gunna be one sick DVD.
I have always been a huge fan of Dave Freimuth’s riding, ever since I was first introduced to Baco 4 on VHS back in the day. His riding was exactly what I was into & still am today, front brake mini ramp tech. It was a dream come true for me to have a clip in Baco 10 a few years ago as I had always watched these videos & admired them all. I so wish I could be over for this jam but I can’t I am sorry to say. For any those closer than Australia to Wisconsin, you should make the effort to get yourself along for a great weekend.
Bobbie Altiser will be flying the flag for Colony there so I am stoked on that. I also stoked that we could help support the jam with some prizes.
Yo yo !!
Coops is heading back out on the road today filming for various future projects. Keep an eye out for him in Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane over the next 2 weeks.

We are getting behind this years Canadian Concrete jam series starting next month so if you are anywhere near Canada be sure to get down and hit these up! Shoutout to KEA for holding it down for us over in Vancouver.
Hey guys, so happy to be riding again. Steadily getting the knee stronger and stronger and putting more trust in it. Full summer mode over here! Beautiful weather, ton of babes and the amazing Vancouver spots. Good times.
Here’s a shot from Vanier bike park today I’m pretty stoked on. Shot by Amos Franke with my gear.
Alex scores a few clips within the latest #CLVLND mixtape filmed at his local stomping grounds of Cleveland in Queensland. Everyone shred it so have a watch…
From the emails I’ve been getting from Simon lately it seems he has been having a blast over in Japan, here is the latest…
I just got back from the Toyama C3 jam which is on the north west side of Japan. As well as checking out the sites of Toyama including the cool castle there, I had a good ride with everyone and also judged the contest.
Lately I’ve been spending alot of time in Tokyo lately. Catching up with some street rider and flatland mates. The last few days ive been cruising the city with Jason Halayko (Japans No 1 Redbull photographer) and getting some great shots. More photos here.
Thanks to Jason Halayko for the really nice shot of Simon here…
6 hammer moves from Alex from a recent trip over in California. Loved the opposite downside whip to bars at Vans…
I knew of a few drain spots that already existed here in Melbourne so I spent some time fixing up a few along with creating some new spots and then invited some of the guys to come down, stay at my place and ride the spots for 3 days. We had to do this during the middle of summer so that we didn’t get washed away and to be able to build at the spots. This all worked well besides the temperatures going above 40 every day we were out but everyone made it work and had a blast doing so. Here is the video (and photos) from the project, hopefully we get to do another one next summer.
We are stoked to get behind Crucial BMX Shop in the UK & this VW Car Show with their mini ramp comp going down. Get yourself along for a chance to win one of the very special limited edition Colony Endeavour complete bikes we did with the guys at Type 2 Detectives in the UK. Should be a great weekend of BMX & VW’s for all on the 6th, 7th & 8th of June.

Ryan is over in California right now from his homeland of the UK so whilst we were over there we shot this web advert. The kid can crank a good turndown and I would happily shoot them everyday…
Simon O’Brien is a wizard! Even if flatland isn’t your thing this video is well worth a watch. Simon put a lot of time and effort into perfecting his craft and that’s something I can really appreciate…
A good chunk of the team have some really good footage in the mix section of Stu Munro’s DVD. You can see more sections right here…
I just came across this video of Peta from a recent comp at GC Compound. Along with Natalya Diehm they both killed it for the womens event.
Hey guys just a quick update to say g’day.
I just finished up a trip to Canberra for the ACT jam. Was a killer time and full of killer people. The level of riding there was insane! Canberra is sick. Thanks so much to Millsy and Colony for another amazing trip.
Other than that I have been riding solo a lot. Nothing better than clearing my head on my bike. Have some things in the works products wise too so keep an eye out.
Go out and have some fun on your bike!
