Area 43 mission

We were fortunate enough to spend the afternoon at the Area 43 backyard setup which was seriously amazing! The locals are really down to earth and so welcoming. We also hit up the Mission Valley park which was also quite the amazing park and well worth the drive for anyone in California.

FTLT coming to an end

Well for me this trip has been a solid 4 weeks of filming and driving and although the past week has been from home it has still felt like a trip. In the very early hours of tomorrow morning both Brandon and Jourdan will be heading back home overseas and Tom headed back to Brisbane this evening. It’s been a blast and we got some really solid footage. Here are a couple photos from just before of the guys packing up and chilling watching all the footage from the past weeks.

A day with Ryan & Alex

Whilst Alex is out in California staying with Ryan the guys at TCU hung out for a day and filmed a bunch of clips of the guys hitting up a few parks and Ben Snowden’s backyard.

Jourdan Barba video

Jourdan is out here in AUS right now filming with us on the road and for some extra goodness he just dropped this new web video!

Blast from the past…

Remember Nick Richardson? You might remember him from such signature Colony products as, the Bloody Oath Frame & Bars or the Gnar Kill Frame. Affectionately known as Richo, Nick has departed the BMX scene in recent years but still holds a place in our hearts & thoughts. I for one am stoked to see him doing what he is these days.

Read on below as to what Nick has been up too of late…

G’day guys,

It’s been a few years since anyone has seen or heard about me in the BMX industry, What have I been doing? Well… haha

Ever since I stopped riding BMX full time, I started studying Graphic Design. It was something that just really appealed to me. I liked the fact that it allows you to create something from nothing. Ever since I was younger I always wanted to start my own brand and by doing this course it gave me the skills to do so.
That brings me to fishing…

Fishing has always been a part of my life even when I rode BMX, but as I got into it more I discovered the more technical side to it. I got addicted to it and it pretty much became my life, everyday I was out on the water discovering new things and places.

So at the end of last year, I decided to start a clothing brand completely dedicated to the fishing industry. I didn’t want to be “just another clothing brand”, I wanted the brand to have meaning! What this brand is about is awareness, I want people to know how their actions affect the marine life above and below the water. For our new range our slogan is “Respect Our Waterways”. I want to push that as much as I can, to make people aware of what they are doing, I want my kids and their kids to be able to fish the same spots we do and catch the same fish!

I decide to name the brand “Tide Apparel” … To me this is more then just a clothing brand, it’s a movement.

Follow us on Instagram @tideapparel and Facebook

Or to shop, please go to the website 🙂 Thanks – Richo.

Zac Miner update

Zac just shot through an update from the recent long weekend…

So the long weekend just flew by, but I did manage to get out of Canberra. I went down to Albury for Tenna’s (Matt spencer) birthday, was such a good night, got pretty reckless till all hours of the morning. It’s always good to catch up with the Albury crew! Next day I set off to see some good friends down in Kyabram then went up to Deniliquin to catch up the folks.. Managed to get a bit of a ride in at the old local. It was an awesome weekend, good to catch up with a heap of people I never really get to see! Won’t be really traveling solo for a bit, as I’m losing my license yet again. But this coming week I’m heading up to Brissy for a week long trip. Can’t wait…

Photo: Ryan Guettler

This was shot last year on our trip to the UK in Hastings. We didn’t get much time to ride this park but Ryan made the most of it.

Farewell Liam Zingbergs

Liam Zingbergs has decided to move on from the Colony family to pursue other avenues. It’s always sad to see a team rider leave the family but we also know a rider needs to do what they feel is right at the time. We do thank Liam for all his efforts over the years & wish him all the best in what ever may be around the corner for him. As a farewell, check out his recent few edits as a reminder of the good times had, thanks again mate !!

Here are some words from Liam…

I want to thank Colony and Clint for the last few years of support, it’s much appreciated. Although it sucks, I’m excited to see what the future holds for both Colony and myself, thanks! – Liam.
