26 Oct Gleamin QUit Dreaming – DVD Review

product_imagequitdreamin

In a world of quantity over quality, Gleamin – Quit Dreaming is the exact opposite of all of that. It’s fair to say there hasn’t been a more anticipated BMX flick since Criminal Mischief and of course Deadline. The pressure built up as the months went on and GLMN was there, but nowhere at the same time. That being said, it does not disappoint. A true masterpiece, arguably the best Canadian BMX film ever made.

If you aren’t familiar with Luke Santucci, Luke grew up in Edmonton, AB riding with the likes of Jaumell Campbell, Jared Chilko, Mike Boag, K Will, Chaunch, Ren and more. The son of 5 time grey cup champion Angelo Santucci (find the reference in the dvd) would eventually move out of Edmonton to Vancouver, where he’s been living for the last 6-7 years. Luke is well known for his riding but has been somewhat underrated in his filming/ editing forever. Quit Dreaming shows how incredibly talented Luke is behind a camera and editing software, with seamless links from section to section, great soundtrack and great fish angles with his modded mk2 (nah son).

Doing a DVD review is never easy. There’s no real reason to explain the radness of this DVD but here’s a few reasons you should grab a copy:– It will make you want to go to Vancouver badly (or feel like you are already there for the duration of the video)
– This is a legit crew video, all of these guys are friends and chill/ride together on a regular basis and it shows
– Luke kills it at filming/editing
– Jaumell Campbell, Taylor Elvy, James Steele, Dave Scott, Andy Roode, Matt Desson, Brad Hill, Cory Beal, Ryan Hiebert, le Luke, Mike Boag, Jared Chilko, amongst a ton more have clips/ sections. All these guys are legends.
– Jordan Hango has last section and it’s typical Hango…
– Luke put years of time and effort into this, rather than taking the typical web route, we have a lifelong physical copy of a masterpiece in Canadian BMX history

This could drag on forever but essentially the underlying message is that you’ll be disappointed with yourself years from now if you don’t get a copy of this dvd. This film is 100% Canadian BMX at it’s finest. No Bullshit, just friends riding their city for all the right reasons. Take note kids, this is what it’s all about, QUIT DREAMING

20 Nov 4 year anniversary – TBT early days

triangle

It’s hard to believe but this week marks our 4 year anniversary. Although that may not seem like a long time, 1,365 posts and over 200 edits later, to us it feels like forever. This site would not exist without all of our contributors, a huge thanks goes to all the homies who have created a feature or features, edits, ideas, logos, or even just sent us a link to an edit. There’s too many to name but you know who you are! A huge thank you goes out to BMX Gallery 4130 who have supported NE since the beginning and also to Etnies/Timebomb who have also supported the site and all of our contests for many years now. This site would also not exist without the support of you guys, riders across Canada, thank you for checking this site out!

We hate to ask, but if you enjoy this site please share this post with a link to our FB page and/or insta page.

BMX in Canada is bigger and better than ever today, we look forward to many more years to come.

To celebrate 4 years, and the fact that it’s TBT, here’s a look at a few of our earliest edits that we had been saving for the official NE launch.


Papa Matt Desson is one of those dudes who can film an edit in days, and that’s pretty much how this edit started. Some igloo clips, Woodyard and street clips, this was one of our first and Matt put in work for it.


Your favorite street rider’s favorite rider, Corey Dewey put in tons of work for the Ten Pack DVD in 2010. So much that Sean Cooke had this much left over footage and this edit/ interview fell into place. Dewey is and has always been a big hockey/Habs fan and is also a super serious dude so the song seemed like a solid choice.


Edmonton’s Mike Boag has been one of Canada’s hidden gems for years. Mike’s a super well rounded rider who’s been killing it forever, this was filmed by Taylor Elvy and edited by Luke Santucci.


This one kind of just fell into place while filming Desson’s edit. Hango’s first time ever riding the Woodyard but you’d never know it. The wallride to table he does near the end of the edit is opo slanted, it’s hard to explain but essentially it doesn’t really make sense to wallride, nevermind wallride to table. Hango can make anything work.

We could have posted many more edits but here’s a few other really early NE edits if you’ve got the time/wintertime blues: Ghetto mansionJames Steele, Jaumell vs Luke game of Bike, beer pong with Luke

Thanks for your continued support, big things to come!

15 May John Alden Spring Edit

John Alden is a shredder and this Ten Pack/BMX Gallery spring edit is proof. Filmed by a bunch of rad dudes, Austin Odegnal, Mike Boag and Matt Walser, John is wearing a rad hat throughout most of the edit and he does a downside handplant on a quarter/extension setup which is completely ridiculous. Watch this if you haven’t already!
