Three men left on this journey, only two came home…
Three of the world’s most renowned BASE jumpers, Jokke Sommer, Espen Fadnes and Ludovic Woerth embark on an adventure around the world seeking out unique and challenging places to wingsuit proximity flying and BASE jumping. This exceptional journey takes Jokke, Espen and Ludo to Rio De Janeiro, Chamonix, Reunion Island, the Tianmen Mountains in China, Bangkok, before their planned final jump in Dubai.
All three athletes speak candidly about the moralities of the sport they risk their lives for and the emotions and rewards that push them to pioneer this sport.
The world of Snowboarding seems on a one way ticket to insanity at the moment. The bounds of reality are literally shifting as the world’s best compete to change the scope of what is possible. A few years ago we thought the limit was a double cork rotation, then last year we saw triples being landed in competition. Now the dawn of the Quadruple Cork has arrived with British Snowboarder, Billy Morgan landing a Backside 1800° Quadruple Cork yesterday in Livigno, Italy. Whats next?
I always appreciate a great video of the RVCA Rolling Retro day, as most times I am so busy on the day behind the scenes, on the mic and sneaking in my heat, that I miss a bunch of highlights. I am sure Robby, from Vudu Surf, feels the same way. It’s tough sometimes running the event. So when a video drops on my timeline like this, I get real stoked! The crew from We-are-Awesome, with Vans, captured our day perfectly. So sit back and watch a magical event on film and maybe like me you will get goosebumps thinking back on the best day of the year…
If you missed this event, you were sleeping! Absolutely the best locally produced action sports event in South African history. I was lucky enough to host the event and thus got to see most of this action up close and personal, but for those of you who missed out, GoPro have made a great video for you to check out. I guarantee once you watch this, you will not miss the show again! Skate, FMX, BMX and Brian Capper going nuts on his trial bike.
If you love motorbikes, whether dirt, cafe racers, racing or just cruising, then you want to come down to Aces n Spades tonight and join me for the Skullcandy Premier of, On Any Sunday – The Next Chapter. The weather is crap, but it is perfect for a cozy film night at Aces and will be followed by rock karaoke with Paul Snodgrass. We also have Red Bull and Jack Daniels at the event, to keep you energised and warm. Check the trailer below and tell me it does not get you frothing!
Four decades after the original “On Any Sunday” scored its Academy Award-nomination for Best Documentary Film, “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” shows that the passion for riding motorcycles is as strong as ever. Dana Brown directs this modern take on the original, capturing what it means to ride in the United States and abroad. “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” is an exploration into the pursuit of excitement, passion and life in the world of motorcycle riding.
Take super modified trucks, usually raced in Desert conditions, some of the craziest drivers on the planet and dump them in the snow and you get Red Bull Frozen Rush. There are always major moments that stand out in your memory at any event. Whether they mean much in the end or not, those moments are spectacular on their own. The 2015 edition of Red Bull Frozen Rush had more than a few instances that made fans cringe or cheer (or both), five of which you can see in the video below.

It may be the dead cold of winter here in South Africa, but somewhere on the planet the air is warm, the water warmer and hot gals are prancing around in Bikinis. So to remind you of the good times and summer vibes, I thought you might like a look at the 2014 Surfing Magazine swimsuit video…
The beach at Ballito has been coming alive towards the end of the week. Droves of young, buxom girls in bikinis frolic and tan while the surfers in the Mr Price Pro put on a show worthy of kings. The surfing steps up every day with Filipe Toledo leading the charge, once again posting a massive air for a perfect 10 score and backing that up with a 9. Matt Wilko has put his hand up and was absolutely destroying the fun beachy peaks. No Surfing today, which means Sunday is going to be a huge day of surfing with the Quarters starting and running all the way to crowning the 2014 Mr Price Pro Champion!
