Alex Hiam update

Yo Guys !

As you guys may know I am currently off the bike injured recovering from wrist surgery. It’s getting close now to The new year when I can ride again, Im starting to count the days down! I can finally take my wrist splint off now and have been doing a bunch of exercises every hour to get the range of motion back in my wrist. I start strengthening next week when I get a little more movement happening , then I can start Physio after that!

I have been going to the gym everyday and skating here & there. It’s good to get out in the sun and to hang out at the skatepark again. Just keeping it chill on the skateboard just because I do not want to fall on my wrist again. Thanks to Primary Threads for the board they sent me.

It’s getting super hot in Brisbane lately and it’s not even summer yet. But I’m loving the heat!

Bobbie Altiser video

In my eyes, Bobbie is one of the most entertaining riders to watch and film, This video was basically filmed over two weeks. One week in California back in March then another week in September when we tripped up to Utah. I honestly don’t think this song could be used for anyone but Bobbie but i feel it works really well. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did making it with Bob…

Bobbie Altiser bike check

Zac Miner’s backyard

So It’s everyone’s dream to have a set of trails or a sick ramp in their backyard and this bad boys been sitting in my backyard for a couple of months now. It’s at about the half way point, with one layer of ply on the whole thing. it looks amazing, I can’t wait to having this thing rolling. But money’s the issue. I’m kinda throwing out a helping hand to anyone that knows a builder around the Canberra area or that can get 20 sheets of ply real cheap. So I can have this thing all finished up for these warmer months. Hit me up on a FB message if anyone can help. I’ll throw in a whole box of goodies if you can help my dream wrap up a little quicker. Thanks guys

This video has been in the works for quite some time which I think you can tell that from the finished product. Jack absolutely killed it and we wanted to tie in the video release with the news of welcoming him to the pro team. So here it is, enjoy!

Behind the scenes

I wanted to share with you all some behind the scenes from here in Taiwan into what we put into producing & marketing our products to you, our customers & fellow BMXer’s.

Jack Kelly in Adelaide

Last week I headed to Adelaide to ride and film with Troy Charlesworth, Brock Olive & Mike Vockenson for an Australia mixtape Troy is working on and also to film with Vocko for Crispy Stream. Adelaide has an abundance of flat rails and spots in general which is awesome, and one of the best BMX scenes in Australia. Thanks to Rhys Gogel for letting us stay at his place and driving us around all over Adelaide & thanks to Dave Rubinich for the pictures.

Hey guys,

Just checking in to let you know what’s up. So the doctor says I’m off for at least another three weeks with my leg. Then I have to start physio to build the strength back up. I’m so excited to get back on my bike and just roll down the street even. Best feeling.

Also, if you’re reading this and you still haven’t watched Alex’s new edit, GO WATCH IT NOW! Hahaha. Unbelievable!

Looking forward to seeing one of my favourite riders, Bobbie Altiser‘s new web edit which will be out real soon as well. So keep an eye out. Such a treat to watch.
