Weekend in Squamish

Mikhail spent the summer living¬†with his girlfriend, Tianna, in Vancouver, giving him almost immediate access to Squamish every weekend. As such, I’ve been subjected to his endless Instagram feed of boulder after boulder. With only a couple weeks before Mikhail returns to school, Noah and I drove to Vancouver, picked up Mikhail, sat in traffic […]

Pelle on his Specialized Enduro Elite 29

Much like every time we plan to shoot, Pelle got his hands on a brand new, very nice mountain bike. This time it’s a Specialized Enduro Elite 29. While this thing looks great as-is, he’s got plans to cut glossy black decals to cover all the white highlights on the frame. In the meantime, here […]

Bastion Square Grand Prix

I spent a few hours this weekend wandering the blocks surrounding Bastion Square as groups of lycra-clad cyclists whipped past me. On my 1985 Norco Monterey, I’ve hit just over 40km/hr on flat, and I average around 27km/hr. These guys (and girls) were going well over 40 the whole time. I actually felt light-headed at […]

Crag X Powersurge Video

I filmed this highlight video of the finals at the latest Crag X Powersurge competition a few weeks ago. If you’ve ever wondered what goes into filming a bouldering competition, it (mostly) involves 11 hours of hanging out at the gym, having some beer, and then watching really (really) strong climbers attack the problems.
