One Hit Wednesday #2 – Chris Doyle

Chris Doyle has been filming enders longer than most people have been riding. For our 2008 dvd, “Safety First” we ended up filming his last clip in Chapel Hill, NC. Chris had been sweating this manual gap to rail for a few years before this, and decided it was finally time to get it done. One of our flow riders, Jason Owens, lost his mind when Chris accidentally jumped to feeble on the first take. Chris being the professional he is, got back on his bike and laced it next try. Classic Doyle, classic footage.

We met Jorge “Kazique” Ceballos on a Kink trip to Bogota, Colombia a few years back. The trip was eye opening from the culture, nightlife and the riders. After watching Kazique take his first run at the local indoor spot, I knew I wanted him repping Kink. We’re hoping to get him to the states this year, to get this guy some coverage!
