This was the final clip filmed during the making of Squash It. Aaron was in Austin for the last bit of filming and happened to get his ender on the last day of his trip. This part of town is extremely busy and campus police in Austin are notorious when it comes to BMX, so needless to say, we were happy to get out of there with a crazy clip and no police or security. Shout out to Kurtis Elwell on this one. Boss.

The BMX crash clip is something that represents the trials, tribulations, and the more serious side of filming and riding BMX. As of the past few years, the online crash clip has lost its place in BMX, and turned more into a “shock the audience” upload, for garnering attention and views. When we post something like this, it is because an intense amount of time, money, thinking, passion, and planning, went into whatever it is we were doing at that moment…and sometimes it just doesn’t work out…and that is part of BMX and what we do.
While on the first filming trip, in Tampa, Florida early 2014 for last week’s SXTN release, Sean came across this 180 rail hop he was into. He popped over it casually the first time, but landed a bit weird and blew the roll out. On the second attempt he missed his pop on the 180, and needless to say, we went straight to the hospital. Sean was on a flight home the next morning and in surgery by the following day. Brutal.

While cruising around on our Mexico City tour last year, we came across these “tea cups” that we had recognized from previous bmx videos. They were super hard to ride and none of us could really come up with anything. Tony didn’t seem to be having trouble and eventually started toying with the idea of flipping it. The first attempt was super sketchy, he basically front cased the edge of the cup. Somehow, next try he pulled it perfectly, and we had a good laugh at how ridiculous this clip is.
