17 Feb NE 2015 Photogallery by Zach St. Clair

Zach St Clair is a young Timmins/Markham/TO shredder who is known for his riding and as of late spot searching. Maybe a lesser known thing about Zach is that he’s also very talented behind the lens, wether it be filming or taking pictures. He was nice enough to put together this awesome 2015 photogallery for NE featuring some of his Ontario homies, check it.

27 Nov “Out Biking” Mixtape

I suck at video descriptions, normally I would go with something along the lines of  “I made this video of my friends biking because it’s fun.” But I feel like I could probably say something slightly more interesting about this one. Basically I spent the summer carrying my VX around, annoying as many people as I could to let me film them. After about a dozen mini DV tapes, a broken ribbon cable in my viewfinder and a few trips; (Montreal, Toronto, London and a couple other places) I somehow I ended up with 8 and a half minutes of footage. So thanks to everyone who was down to film something for this! *praying hands emoji* And thanks to the Long Island connects aka The Whammo squad for sending a bunch of awesome clips through. Also massive thanks to Jeremy Deme for letting me premiere this on the site, and for being the man and holding down The Embassy for the last 5 years.

31 Aug Merritt in da 6ix

The Merritt team rolled through Toronto in July, in typical Merritt fashion. If Eli Taylor, Mike Brennan, Greg Henry, Chijioke Okafo, Joel Fortin, Brandon Begin, Charlie Crumlish and Justin Care aren’t reason enough to watch this, Ryan Navaz put this beauty together so hit play already.

“Merritt American team riders Brandon Begin, Charlie Crumlish and Justin Care hit the streets of Toronto with their Canadian buddies Greg Henry, Eli Taylor, Joel Fortin and ChijIoke Okafo. The crew of shit disturbers crushed spots all over the Greater Toronto Area and produced this bad ass video. Shout out to Toronto ex-mayor Rob Ford for his support! Ya don’t wanna miss this one, EH! ” Merritt
