Amazing first day at the @vans surf open. Street Finals and more vert demos today. Thanks for the good times @vansbmx66 @stevevandoren
RICK THORNE NEEDS OUR HELP! PLEASE GIVE IF YOU CAN! THANK YOU! I LOVE YOU THORNE! GoFundMe link in @rickthorne profile —————————- I was doing a demo and slammed really hard. I broke seven ribs, ruptured a vertebrae in my lower back, I got knocked out, and had over 3 liters of blood drained from my lungs. I have a long road to recovery and I don’t have health insurance. I had to stay in hospital for almost a week. All donations will help pay my hospital bills and help The Biker In Black continue to shred. I appreciate all the love, STAY RAD.
Another day another #backyardsess434. But tomorrow I get the honor to head to Huntington Beach to do a demo at the US Open. Thanks for the invite @vansbmx66 btw I slipped a pedal on a Superman today, but I didn’t catch it on my GoPro, but thought I’d share the aftermath… don’t worry my shins are all scar tissue and numb to pedal bites. #merelyafleshwound
I get the honor to be a part of an art show with some of the Greats, opening tomorrow. It’s free, so come on by and say hi. —————— mat hoffman
dropping in for exhibit 2! oklahoma native and bmx legend mat hoffman is an avid painter when he is not in the air. anywhere you go within the bmx freestyle scene, the name mat hoffman is bound to come up. in fact, hoffman’s reputation stretches beyond the bmx freestyle world and into the mainstream. he is, without question, the greatest vert-ramp rider in the history of the sport. mat’s narrative paintings depict colorful dreamscapes that ignite imaginations and spark questions that only the “condor” can answer. “the truest thing to me is dreaming. and if you dream hard enough – it becomes reality and sometimes when you’re a compulsive dreamer… then reality doesn’t have a choice.”- mat hoffman. @urbancoreartists @verbodegroup @christieowenart
