The full “Why Didn’t We Do This Before?” video from Etnies is now online!
Here’s a throwback that Snakebite BMX uploaded that I’m especially stoked to see again. This is the full “Why Didn’t We Do This Before?” video Etnies released back in 2006 from a trip the team (arguably one of the most legendary teams of all time) took from Austin, Texas on up to Wisconsin hitting up parks and spots along the way. This video is honestly part of the reason this website probably exists today since 16 year old me met these guys for the very first time at Jellystone in Wisconsin and it was one of those experiences that really stuck with me. If I remember right I met Ruben when I had just about all of his signature parts and shoes at the time. It was also when I was really getting into making videos, and seeing pros of this level ride in person definitely made an impact. Either way, this video is an awesome watch with a ton of great riding and that classic mid school riding that we just don’t get to see a lot of these days. Check it out!

I might as well include my video I made from their stop at Jellystone. Pretty wild to think this was already 17 years ago and how much has changed from cameras to editing and uploading in that time.
