In a world of 15-second Instagram clips and constant social media churn, here’s a silver platter of Canadian BMX videos from recent months. This is the Northern Embassy’s Video Round Up.
The dude Ian Fleming just sent through this great little nugget from a trip to London with Andrew Phillips, Alexis Leger, Matt Comeau, Paul Slaunwhite, Colin Kenny, Harrison Forward and Damien Maclean. Although it looks like they had a great time and rode a bunch of amazing spots, they probably didn’t enjoy it one bit because there were no hydrants around :/ smh.
Every Summer we go on a road trip to Montreal to film a bit for the DVD and drink a lot. We’ve been trying to get into the habit of taking a handful of disposables with us to capture key moments to remember the great times we had during the trip. I think the guys nailed it this time.
This trip was particularly awesome. We drove up there with two cars full of people, and met up with more Halifax dudes who are working out west when we got there. All together I think there was 9 of us from back home. The crew consisted of young guns as young as 18 and OG’s as old as 27, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gang. On top of the crew we brought, we met up with a bunch of homies and stacked like crazy for the DVD.
Photos taken by everyone. HUGE thanks to Arnaud Paquin for letting us stay at his place in Terrebonne for a few nights, for taking us to a dope beach in the middle of the woods, and being an all around dope guy. Massive thanks to Justin Hughes for bringing our stubborn asses all around the city to incredible spots, and for being the party master he is, and thanks to everyone that added to the trip in any way to make it as sick as it was.
We headed to Toronto this year for our Business trip, and figured rolling around with some disposable cameras in our pockets would be a great way to capture the essence of what BMX trips are to us. So each of us stocked up on disposables so we could snap pictures throughout the day (and night) as quick as possible when something worth shooting came up. The results were awesome and pretty funny. This is just a small amount of the shots we snapped but are some of the best.
Even though these pictures are from different days over the course of the trip, I wanted them to be laid out in such a way that it shows a pretty average day on our bikes while on a trip. Here’s what we came up with, Enjoy!
