Ryan Guettler update

I’m writing a update from Woodward camp and it makes think how crazy that is to say. As a kid I grew up dreaming of Woodward camp I had all the posters on my walls, All the riders I looked up to I ripped out of magazines and tacked them to the wall. And one day I was riding Beenleigh and Colin Mackay was there filming, Colin lived on the other side of Brisbane so it was a treat to see him because he would always go highest over Beenleigh hip.. Before he left he handed out stickers to all the kids like how I thought pros would, he gave me a Woodward sticker and joked you should go there one day. I didn’t know what to do with it, it was too special to put on my helmet or bike because I might never get one again. I framed it with a photo of lot 8 and a photo of the dirt jumps from BMXPLUS. Crazy to think him giving me that sticker has motivated me this much. I’ve been to Woodward over 40 different times now and have the best times here !!! Thanks Col I owe you!!!

I’m here all week and some of next week getting some new tricks dialed before I go to Barcelona next week for an event. Here’s some photos of the good times.

Ryan and the Monster Army

I will let Ryan tell the story behind this cool project…

I’ve been doing a lot of recon tours and RV trips and see so much talent with in the Bmxers so Iv’e teamed up with the Monster Army program to find theses kids and let them tell their story and see what goals they have on the bike. I think it’s really cool to let them tell their story so it’s not always just about the big tricks.

Here is the first video which features Chandler Golden who is from Chandler, AZ. It also has some really good clips of Ryan mixed throughout…

Bobbie @ Baco

Bobbie took out the #frontbrakebrethren contest at Baco last weekend. I can’t wait to see the footage from it to see what went down.


Jourdan Barba update

Jourdan has been cruising around with his homies of late and sent through a couple photos…



Ryan Guettler update

Hay guys,
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.
Peace, Ry.

How to bleach a t-shirt… with Mike Brennan

Mike Brennan loves a good bleached tee so he was good enough to shoot us over a quick how-to on how he does his t-shirts…

First get a good dark colored Colony shirt. Then some bleach in an empty water or soda bottle and a nail.

First remove the cap from the bottle and tap the nail threw the center. Making a hole.

Next fill the bottle 2/3 of the way up with hot water.

Fill the rest of the bottle with bleach

Now lay your shirt out and spray on any way you want. The longer you leave it the more the color will change.

Flip the shirt over and do the other side.

Make sure to do it somewhere safe that the bleach won’t affect.

Then rinse the shirt out. Done.


Zac Miner update

So despite the weather being beyond average for the last week and a bit, I actually took myself out about two weeks ago riding Civic skate park where I landed with my guts on the end of the bars at the bottom of the ramp it actually scared me for that split second, but the old bar ends saved me from in-palling myself. Seriously kid, run bar ends that shit serious!

Also Last weekend me and my housemate went up to Cairns for 4 days, such an amazing spot up there, didn’t get to ride as I was injured but still so much to see and do up there off the bike. That Place is like Jurassic Park, the rainforest up there is amazing!

Also just a reminder about ACT jam on Anzac Day weekend! Everyone should bring a crew and hang out, it’s gunna be a loose weekend.

Ryan Guettler update

Hay guys, just wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on.

Big things are happening with Colony working with the talented Cooper Brownlee sorting out 2015 color ways and new stickers, big changes on my frame in 2015!!! This week I have Cartoon Network’s HALL OF GAME AWARDS by SHAQ were I’ll be presenting an award. It’s the first kid certified, adrenaline filled celebration of all things sports also I’ve been working a lot with Hookit and their amateur comp series, last year I followed the tour in my RV announcing some of the stops and this year I’ll be doing all the stops announcing Am’s again and have helped set up the pro contest which will be on the Sundays. I’m also looking into Ryan’s Boot camp, which will be a 2 day event all over the USA teaching kids tricks with other pro. More on that later..

Last week I got the chance to ride in the Nitro Circus demo in Anaheim Stadium it was so much fun and im so amazed on the riders in that show it blow my mind. The first comp of 2014 for me will be Maddogs comp in the Kitchen March 22nd so I have some time to get ready. The cool thing about getting ready for comps is pushing yourself so I’ve been filming the tricks along the way so keep your eyes open for edits to start dropping very soon just waiting to find a good song. Tabesforthebabes is still happening this year in the RV. Just waiting for the weather to pick up as it’s winter right now.
