Local BMX Mix / Welcome Filipe Costa Laghi

Tom Roddy cooked up this mix from the crew and I'm really stoked to announce that we recently added Filipe Costa Laghi to the team so he closes it out. 

Fil moved here from Brazil about 5 years ago, he always brings a positive vibe to the session and watching him ride is always a treat, he has a smooth casual quality in his riding that makes everything he does look like its easy for him.  Welcome to the Crew Fil!

Enjoy.

Filmed in the streets of Perth and edited by Tom Roddy. Cheers Roddy!

Callan Stibbards and Jake Corless - Dead Leisure - Conjure Thee

What a treat this was to wake up to this morning, Jake Corless and Callan Stibbards out killing it in the streets of Perth for Dead Leisure.

I love a good split part, especially when the dudes are mates and you know Jake and Callan are out together every weekend pushing each other and feeding off each others riding, I think it really shows in here. Really stoked on what the boys have come up with here. Enjoy!

"Introducing Dead Leisure with this “Conjure Thee” video featuring Callan Stibbards & Jake Corless. The title, not only inspired by the lyrics from the music, but more importantly describes the creation and debut of Dead Leisure with this inaugural video. Since Dead Leisure’s inception roughly 2 years ago (September 2019), Callan and Jake where hyped to be onboard and being fans and friends with them it was a no brainer. Fast forward to April this year (2021), Callan and Jake hit me up with this edit, without prior arrangement or knowledge I was beyond hyped with these dudes work ethic and aesthetic towards BMX. Filmed intermittently over the past few years in and around Perth WA Australia." - Alex Liiv

LUKE SNELLING'S "FOR THE HELL OF IT" JAM AT INDUSTRAIL BIKES.

LUKE SNELLING'S "FOR THE HELL OF IT" JAM AT INDUSTRAIL BIKES.

On the weekend just gone Luke Snelling organized a jam down at Industrail bikes in Henderson. While discussing the idea in our group chat Luke threw out that he wanted to throw a jam for the hell of it and the name stuck. 

This is by no means a comprehensive report of who did what, Shout out to everyone who was getting into it and having a roll, so many dudes were killing it  that I dont have pics of and some wild shit went down that no one got on film/camera. You should have been there!

Matt Bell Tuck no hander, Jamie Mauri pic.

Mitch Morris Icing up, Jamie Mauri pic.

Elliot at Industrail was gracious enough to host it and open up the killer mini ramp set up inside. Luke has been scrounging for pallets and ply for months and him and a few of the boys built a heap of awesome/sketchy set ups out front in the driveway. Along with that Industrail's box jump set up was out and the street spine that formerly resided at Oicnt/Manning crew hq was donated for the cause.

Ryan Aquilina took out the Box jump jam win with tricks like this stretched Suicide no hander above and Superman seat grab below. Well deserved Acka! Jamie Mauri pics

Just about every available Subrosa rail in Perth was bought out and Local provided a grind box, high hop set up and speaker to blast the tunes, along with a few refreshments and Local Dollarydoos as prizes. Speaking of prizes Luke hit up his sponsor Tempered Bikes who gladly kicked in some proddy aswell. Thats pretty much it, the stage was set, everyone just needed to come down and ride and have a good time!

Jacob Kestel was doing really cool weird stuff all arvo, stretched to the max nac (Josh Morris pic) and he did a 180 hand plant over the street spine, his first ever, even though the spine lived in his yard for about 2 years he had never tried it till jam day, goes to show when everyone gets stoked the riding bumps up a notch.

Filipe Laghi pegs up to gap into the bank. 

A huge thanks goes out to Luke for organising this whole thing, its no easy feat, especially building a whole skatepark thats gotta go up and come down on the same day. Thanks also to El at Industrail for everything, everyone that helped set up/ tear down, Tempered for the prizes, Tom Roddy, Josh Morris and Jamie Mauri for taking some pics and sharing them with us and everyone that came down to ride or just hang out and make the arvo/evening what it was.

Luke was already talking about next year so already looking forward to that.

Also worth saying is that anyone can throw a jam, yes even YOU! Pick a day and a place, make a sketchy flyer to share on the gram, tell ya mates, hit us up and we will share and support it.

LOCAL BMX COVID 19 OPERATING UPDATE

LOCAL BMX COVID 19 OPERATING UPDATE

It’s a crazy world out there at the moment and we have been doing what we can to reduce the risk to ourselves, our customers and our family. Its been a tough week or two trying to come to grips with what will be the new normal for a while.

At the same time we still want to keep the BMX stoke high, as getting out and riding your bike is probably safer at the moment (while keeping a safe distance from others) than going to your local shops. Its time to work on your basics like manuals/ manual180’s/ nose manuals/ hop bars/ hop threes/ hop whips…. whatever, out the front of your house or at a quiet carpark near your house.  

We made the call to close the shop front, we are still sticking by this decision to ensure everyone’s safety. Our online store is open 24/7 and we are shipping orders out to customers everyday and placing and receiving orders with our suppliers, if we dont have what you need in stock we are still able to sort it out, just hit us up. With the closure of the shop front we are not taking on repairs at this time.  

That’s pretty much it, stay home, stay safe, ride your bike if you can and stay sane.

See you instore on the other side.

Thanks, Mike – Local BMX.

Vans/Local BMX Shop Stop

Remember that time at the old shop that Dan Lacey, Bruno Hoffman, Dak Roche and Ty Morrow dropped by for a riding session in the car park and hung out?

Yeah I hadn't thought of it for a while either but one of our customers called up today and mentioned it so I thought I'd re-up it for everyone to check out again. It happened, the guys were cool as, just got off the plane from some long flights in from Europe and the US and built their bikes up straight away to come down to the shop, meet the locals and have a roll. Legends.

Vans bought the team out to film for their first full length vid "Illustrated" and got the spot tour from Perth to Cali transplant and Vans pro rider Calvin Kosovich. This was 5 years ago in 2015, Illustrated dropped in 2016 and it was pretty cool to see some familiar Freo/Perth spots in the guys sections.

I really have to say it wouldn't have happened without Calvin, he has been flying the flag for West Oz over seas for years now and it was rad he talked Vans into coming out for a filming trip. Thanks CK. 

Anyway Chris Hyland filmed and edited this little piece, Cheers Chris,  which turned out pretty cool, take a trip down memory lane and see if you can spot yourself in there if you were there.

BUSH FIRE APPEAL - COLONY BMX

Bush Fire Appeal - Colony BMX

Today I spoke with Clint Millar, Aus BMX legend and boss man at Colony/Family Distro and he said that they were doing a Bush Fire Appeal to help those affected by the bush fires over east at the moment. Seeing the devastation on the news and social media we have been wanting to do something similar and thought that we would jump in and support them. 

For the rest of the month of January, we will donate 100% of proceeds raised from a selected range of Colony Frames to the Australian Bush Fire Appeal.

All Colony Monash, Tradition and Bloody Oath frames are on sale for $336, down from $480. Save $144 and support a hell of a cause. 

Please grab yourself a bargain while knowing that your also helping others at the same time. All the frames are listed here.
