Vid of the moment is…
>RBYJS Round 1@ Will’s
Without blowing our own trumpets too much, the first Backyard Jam round went off like a kilo of prawns in the midday sun. All the riders, most of whom also film, were concentrating on nizz shralping, gnar shredding, and just plain being radballs on their wheelieboards. There were also stills photographers in attendance (check the Andy Rolfe & Dirt-Monkey galleries on the rbyjs page), and so for a moment it looked like their was gonna be no filming of this event!?! Obviously this would’ve been a disaster (probably backside). But, luckily for all of us, the lovely Lei (Mrs Matt Brind) turned her camera to ‘video’ mode and shot this little lot with winning Ripper Emlyn B editing it together to reveal a tasty teaser of the fun that went down! Now bonk, tap, stall, rotate, grab, grind, slide and generally jib your hearts out yo!
>2013- New Beginnings
Our friends The Bitches are pretty prolific, chucking out loads of qual vids for 2 years now. It’s great to see the emphasis on having a laugh and from the first vids (& even from the start-to-finish of this one) you can really see & feel progression! This edit is pretty dope, with centre riding, street jibs and coast line freeride-ish fun :) Daf Price & co, for filming, editing as well as riding, remind us of the BFC in their early days, and that is a real good thing! Here’s to new beginnings…

After last years test run it’s all official Serbia is going to hold The World Boardercross Championship on their massive BX track.

We will have to wait till September to find out.
>rc heli mountain board fun
Dec ’12: No longer do you need a mega budget to get those much dreamt of heli shots for your edit. All you need is a mate who good with his thumbs and has a big enough remote control helicopter to carry a GoPro and your sorted :o)
So here goes mountainboard mecca Cleave Hill from the air. Just try not to hit reload to many times ;o)
>Best of mountain boarding 2012
Nov ’12: The boys from Dirt Can’t Melt Media have been every ATBA comp this year riding and weaving to Gopro’s at wheelieboard action they could find, that includes the odd sesh going on at their local Hales Superbole mbc. So without any more waffle from me sit back hold on and enjoy 53 seconds of the best mountainboard steez Dirt Can’t Melt Media saved to an SD card in 2012
>Our Journey 2012
October ’12: Em & Shane aka Tricky Media‘s latest offering is a brilliant, often hilarious 10 minute ride. Journey with them through loads of different places, meeting loads of others riders as they go in their trusty white van. Months of filming and late nights in the editing suite have proved well worthwhile with this smile-raising movie that perfectly captures what it is that so many of us do. When this film premiered at the ATBJunkies Film Festival, the crowds reaction was instantly warm with big cheers throughout, and it ultimately took first place. Now sit back & see why!
Dylan Warren – Winter 2012
September’12: It’s taken 6 months of shredding the cold streets and parks in the depths of the Ozzie winter. And by the end of it Dylan and Co have shifted the bar of mountainboard street riding. To the same standard to you see in skate/BMX/ snowboard edits. Props to them for setting another bench mark
Devin Garland – My mountainboard Promo
August ’12: Devin Garland has been riding for donkeys years (with buddies Dave Starfighter, Ari Coats, Shaun Anderson, Cole Shipp & more) and luckily for us has put together a montage of some of his finest moments. The vid quality ain’t hd or anything but it shows off Devin’s amazing quality riding; solid, steady, confident, having fun, and making sick, tough stuff look easy peasey lemon squeezy. From baked dirt jumps to indoor demos to gopro bikepark, Devin shows us why he’s on the MBS Pro team. Time to slip into the future…
Mountainboard World Freestyle Championships 2012 – Final jumps
August ’12: In Moscow, on the last weekend of July, International riders descended on the City Games festival for THE epic big air comp. This vid from Bilberry breaks down the best jumps from the riders with a handy voiceover to tell you exactly what they’re up to, and of course it features Matt Brynd’s double-backflip nailing…
July ’12: World Mountainboard Day 2012 saw all sorts of riding going on globally and this vid is a good example of the international wheeled fun that us lot love to have. Brought to us by mountainboard.fr & More mountainboard, it was shot at The Rosarie MTB Park in Toulouse (also featured in Gaby Le Gall’s Rem exhib). It’s not high def, cutting edge or genre-defining, instead showcasing a typical day’s japes to a good ol’ hip hop soundtrack and featuring loads of different boarders doing a mix of riding with, a side order of steeze (tree taps, picks etc), comedy bails, partying hard French style, and mountainboarding’s first Nun shredding some gnar. Amen to the good times!
June ’12: A welcome return to both Theo Acworth’s films and the MBS UK demo team. It’s short and sweet; short mainly due to the fact they only had half a days riding out of 3 because of naughty weather, and sweet becuse Mick Kirkman, Ollie Morrison et al are throwing dope shapes in one-piece jumpsuits. And Renny Myles was there.
Kody Stewart – Mountainboarder
June ’12: A promo vid of MBS pro rider & beef jerky muncher Kody Stewart ripping it up. His dedication and endless enthusiasm are infectious, as are his sections in many other films including One5 media productions… Enjoy sick riding in all kindsa spots and don’t forget to shout ‘chicken boots’ at the screen, it makes him go higher!
Bing is for doing – Andy’s story
May ’12: Double-backflipster Andy Milenkovic stars in a short film as part of a viral series for Bing. He speaks for himself. Good on yer, Andy…
Rem Roadtrip with Pixel Distort & PUATB
May ’12: Simon Neck’s Pixel Distort made this vid of a big bad freeride meet in Cann Woods near Plymouth. A whole load of mixed-ability riders shredded the woods even more than the weather already had! There were fallen trees & debris galore, rain, mud, and mega-sick mountainboard riding.
