Santa Cruz With Alex Reveles

_DSF6571-Edit

It has been about 5 years since I had been back to Santa Cruz after moving to NYC.

Why would you ever leave Santa Cruz you ask? You can think of New York as the Whistler, World Cup, Post Office, and Rampage of the photo world all rolled up into one and constantly going full throttle.

I think any photographer who hasn’t been exposed to the top of the commercial photo industry owes it to themselves to at least research some of the amazing work that has come from and continues to pour out of NYC.

That being said, I’m a Nor Cal kid at heart, and NYC will kill your soul.

Freedom 40

R1-04908-0006

When you are a kid you always dream on having a nice house and a backyard full of dirt jumps to ride your bike.

Freedom40 is a reality and is the name of Eric’s backyard, somewhere in the Santa Cruz, CA area where you can ride trails, slopestyle and downhill.

I was able to check that place out and take some photos of Kyle Jameson, Jeff Herbertson and Alex Reveles while they were riding their bikes beating the heat last month.

The Sensus Swayze Grips

bnhectortableonefoot1

Freeride legend Cam Zink started his own company called The Sensus in early 2009 with just a couple of slide-on grips.

I bought my first pair of black Sensus that same year and since then I have never ridden other brands when it comes to grips.

Five years later the company has growth worldwide with all the best riders riding them on their handlebars. They are the most dominant grips on the planet.

The new signature grips from Cam Zink are the Gum Rubber Swayze slide-ons and I have been lucky to test them out in Lloret Trails.

Disposable Trails

_5A_00_1

I bought a cheap Fujifilm disposable camera last week and went to La Poma Bikepark and Lloret Trails to try it out.

The first thing that came up into my mind was that I wanted to portray the fun and joy of riding a bicycle.

I had no idea how the photos would look like.

This is the final result after all the developing process.
