Lewis Bowden took the frames out in Aberdeen for a blast on the streets! The weather in the UK is finally looking up and we’ve been able to hit the streets a lot more often.
Lewis made it onto the be-mag site with that edit, so we’re all psyched. http://www.be-mag.com/news/10225-Lewis-Bowden–Bake-Frames-Test
In other news we headed to the Noiya jam in Sheffield this weekend. Had a sick time and hosted a “best line” jam, which Ryan Tellyn won with a few calm and creative masterpieces.
We gave the homie a set of frames and 8 big-ass wheels for his trouble, and a warning about repping them well or we’d hunt him down and kill him.
Honourable mention to Al Brunton that day for being so hungover he forgot to unwrap his straw before drinking his coke, and even more for pulling out 3 Pistonhead beers from his jacket, surprising himself more than anybody. Pistonhead is pretty moreish.
Lastly Kevin Chow surprised us with a fun clip of a backslide, boned as hell. You can see it here https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152778893680597&set=vb.504750596&type=2&theater
Look out for Kevin at the FISE contest this weekend, he’s going to be rockin’ the Bakes at the slopestyle contest and throughout the festival!
During FISE is the ESA real street contest. We love street contests so we’re giving a pair of frames away for the winner and some clothes for the other dudes who do well. Get down and win shit, these guys are worth looking out for!
Pretty much everyone who rides our frames is awesome. It’s too early to talk about cause and effect, but even the ones who might not have been awesome already definitely are now.
Long story short, dudes all over have been showing us their setups, and we’re into that. We wanted to share a few with you.
First up is Kevin Chow, rocking the stealthy 2.0/Bake/FR setup in Barcelona!
The Xsjado theme continues with Billy Kettler from Texas.
Kevin Timm (I can’t remember where he’s from, but maybe New York or San Francisco? Which Giants??) put the go-faster setup on some USD. Style points.
Last but not least, Erik “Class A” Droogh picked up a set from thisissoul shop in Amsterdam for some old A4s and took them to a mini for a test edit.
To hell with a switch foot.
You wish your frames could do that.
But that means sunlit evenings, stashes of junk food and less rain to complain about. We took a little trip out on Easter Sunday to explore our own city while everyone shut down business and celebrated/hid from the walking undead.
We headed to some closed up warehouse with a whole load of spots, but one trick later the camera gave up the holy ghost. It was a good one though.
Relying on the phonecam for the rest of the day, we cruised the docklands for abandoned treasure and happened upon a few fun bits…
Once we got sick of wallrides (it took a while) we made our way through a labyrinth and a half and found this abandoned carpark with around 5 of these rails. Lines galore.
And no, we’re not telling you how to get in until the edit’s ready.
We managed to get out for Winterclash in Eindhoven! Lots of blading and drinking.
The Bake booth at Winterclash
The frames’ debut was crazy successful, and we sold out of the brand new black model!
We got pretty hammered to celebrate
Then on the traditional Sunday session we managed to clip up! Jordan Jones filmed this sweet edit.
You might notice Ryan Timms in there with the sweet mistrial. Speaking of our mates in the States, we were stressing about not being able to go to Bittercold. It’s really far. But shop-task came through!
Leon saved us.
Looks like we just about got in there in time for the last ever BCSD! Thanks to everyone who bought the frames through the winter contest season, hope you enjoy the shredding!
