Matt Perrin recently published his first issue of Scene Zine, a zine dedicated to the BMX scene in and around Winnipeg, MB. It’s a great 32 page, black and white publication with a mix of interviews and photos that gives some insight in to what makes up their community. The Manitoba scene always appears to be a tight knit group, and this zine is evidence of that. Matt covers not only riders living in the core of Winnipeg, but also the surrounding smaller towns such as Morden, Brandon, Komenda, and more. You can find photos and interviews with Ian Peters, Shawn Hildebrandt, Colin Thiessen, Shawn Franz, and the crew behind Da Peg Show. People that know me know that I believe that printed matter matters, and it’s great to see people continue to put time and energy towards making tangible projects like this to share with their friends.
Matt hooked us up with a bunch of copies so we’re going to pass them on to you. The first five people to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with their FULL mailing address will get a copy. This is only open to residents of Canada, and one copy per person. Check out some more photos of the zine’s contents below, and try to be one of the first five people to send us an email!
Matt Perrin hooked up this beauty of an edit featuring a couple of Winnipeg’s finest, Colin Thiessen, Shawn Franz and friends.
“Colin Thiessen and Shawn Franz have been riding hard all year round and this is what I was lucky enough to capture of these two Winnipeg shredders! Colin is one steezy street rider and ramp destroyer who rides fast and keeps it simple. Franz has a deep bag of INSANELY technical tricks and lives up to his nick name ‘SHOWTIME’. Watch out for this guy next summer and give both of these guys a fist pound when you see them.”

Earlier this year in the spring Matt Perrin took a ride on a Greyhound bus from Winnipeg to Montreal. Anyone who has ever ridden the bus any distance in this country knows it’s not an easy ride, let alone for 1.5 days of constant travel. To coincide with this new edit (filmed in Winnipeg, Montreal, Brandon, and Kenora) we asked Matt a few questions about both cities, and the good and the bad of traveling across country by bus. Check that out below.
New Repset teaser is dope as hell. Super well put together by Beal, including some funny Canadian quotes from that 70’s show and some really dope clips from Winnipeg locals including Matt Perrin, Carl Wood and Wayne Hartman. Wayne’s last few clips are ridiculous, god damn!
Damnnn, Winnipeg bringing some heat in the dead of winter! Here’s some footy Matt had of Wayne Hartman shredding the Winnipeg warehouse from last winter, filmed and edited by Matt Perrin. Thanks for hooking this up homies!
Matt Perrin put together this dope edit of himself and friends (Wayne Hartman & Shawn Franz) shredding Winnipeg and surroundings. Matt has an awesome style (almost a mix of David Grant/ Tom White) and takes shit to some bigger street “fire” spots making this edit a real good watch.
“I’ve been filming on and off for roughly the last two years and here is a taste of what I have filmed. My friends and I have filmed in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Minneapolis, St. Catharines. More Videos soon! ENJOY!”

Big thanks to Matt for hooking this up, looking forward to more edits!
A few Regina/Saskatoon, SK dudes made the trip to Winnipeg this past weekend and this is the result. Filmed by Braden Burym, featuring Jarek Mus, Colin Lang, Matt Perrin, Wayne Hartman and Steve Kowalsky. Spring is in the air, let the road trips begin.
