Kink BMX In Panama City

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

The Kink team are no strangers to going to some pretty unique places for their team trips. They recently hopped a plane to Panama City to see just what this city had in store for them! Based off the video, it looks like spot after spot after spot of pure gold that they managed to sneak a session in to film a clip without getting kicked out (and sometimes while getting kicked out). Hit play on this BMX video because Sean Sexton, Tony Hamlin, Dan Coller, Darryl Tocco and Panama local and Kink connect, Kazique Ceballaos, absolutely CRUSH it in this! Must See for sure!

After a trip fell through last minute to Honduras (due to some real world problems)… We decided instead of not going anywhere… To find the next best place that was cheap enough to enjoy. Panama City, Panama came to mind. After a few phone calls and text messages to some people that have been there, the tickets were booked, and our luxury sky rise apartment was paid for! Besides that, we didn’t know much about the place, or what we were getting into. Come to find out, the place is stacked. The footage you see is a mere 3% of what there is to ride in the city. Security is super tight, police are everywhere, and it is just plain not easy to ride spots there. You have to take a completely different approach to filming and riding in Panama; one that not many of the dudes are accustomed to. With all the hassles of security, strange people, language barriers, and cops with machine guns…we had an amazing time, and are stoked to have been able to not only ride some new spots, but meet the locals and have an awesome session. Thanks to everyone down there for the hospitality, and especially Ramon Pereira for the help and support during our trip.

It’s pretty rad seeing how riders are able to balance out multiple roles in BMX these days. Christian Rigal is a perfect example of that who is one hell of an amazing rider, but he’s equally as dialed on the other side of the lens as well. There’s no doubt that you’re a fan of his riding, his film work or both. With that being said, between riding and filming, Christian is constantly on the move working on projects from his section for the new United DVD “Still United” section to getting his new RED Scarlet Dragon camera dialed in. We haven’t caught up with him in a little while, so we figured now would be a perfect time to catch up with him and see what’s new! There’s some Markit news that we’re especially excited about… Check it!

On a frosty Saturday morning the Johannesburg Library Gardens were awoken to the sound of bikes cruising in as riders from different scenes and towns from all over SA came together in support the first global BMX day.
The point of BMX day is not about drawing crowds, prize money or a contest format, It’s about drawing the scene closer together no matter how big or small through sharing the common bond of riding bikes.
So without further delay we packed the van, camera gear and set off on a wild ride through the city!

After warming up and clocking some clips at the first spot as well as getting everyone in one place for a group photo to commemorate this gathering it was time to hit the streets, Seeing a huge mob of riders bombing down Commissioner Street is definitely a sight to make anyone who has ever ridden a bike stoked.
With Wayne Reiche and Kevin Schnider capturing the vibe and the visuals you know this is going to be on point. Check out the edit and photo gallery below and get a behind the scenes look at how a bunch of BMX riders took over the streets of Johannesburg !

Huge thanks to the brands who supported with product and played an integral part making it happen :
Monster Energy SA, Skullcandy, BMX Direct, DC Shoes Africa, Evals BMX, Skabanga Crew, Stay Mooked, Vans, Loot Brand, Mongoose Bikes and 1933 Classic Tattoos.
