stranded flyer 2

We posted about the St. John’s, Newfoundland scene video Stranded when Ryan Antle sent us the trailer earlier this year and he just let us know that they are finished and premiering it at Turndown this Friday, November 22nd at 6:00pm. $20 to watch the video, get a copy, and ride the Turndown park until 10:00pm. Not a bad way to spend your Friday night and support your local scene. Make it out, enjoy a Quidi Vidi, kick back, and watch what these b’ys have worked on. You can check out the trailer again below after the link.

06 Sep The Stranded Video Trailer – St. John’s, Newfoundland

Ryan Antle sent over this trailer for the upcoming St. John’s scene video The Stranded Video, and I’m a sucker for a strong local scene production. This is the first full length video from their area since Hiatus in 2005, and it’s great to see such a range of ages and talent in this trailer alone. The video will be premiering at Turndown this fall and then online shortly after. We’ll post more details about the premiere party when we have them.

11 Feb Too Young To Get Old

I am by no means a talented filmer or editor, but I do pull out my point and shoot camera (or in most cases my phone) from time to time to record. I collected a bunch of random stuff I had filmed between January 2012 and January 2013 and put together this short video.

In the last year I visited both ends of the country to stay with friends and made plenty of new ones, as well as had numerous friends come and stay with me in Toronto. At times I may jokingly call myself an old man and complain about my aches and pains, but when I look at my life and the people I surround myself with I cannot help but feel young and invigorated. This video is full of those people and places, as well as a few cute animals.

In order of appearance:
Patrick Krzyzanowski
Chris Silva
Jeff Bedard
Leland Nightingale
Rich Redmond
Phil Bartlett
Chris Langoid
Prashant Gopal
Greg Flag
Craig Robinson
Buck 65
Dillon Lloyd
Trent Barker’s fist

Music:
Old Canes – Black Hill Chapel

17 Jan Turndown/Ant Life Winter Session

St. John’s, Newfoundland has a booming BMX scene and population, despite the city’s relatively small size. Much of that can be attributed to Rob Yetman’s shop Turndown. Very few shops offer a huge selection of BMX bikes and parts, as well as being home to an ever changing indoor park. Rob and his crew are in there building ramps, rails, and modifying their setup in order to offer the riders of St. John’s a haven for the long winter months. Jon Fenn sent in this edit from their winter so far, which includes a number of Hiatus/Deadline era riders back riding for the first time in a few years.
