Although Hiroshi Uehara’s name might not be all too familiar to many of you, he is definitely one person in BMX doing things on his own terms and making it work! Head over to The Hundreds for a feature on Hiroshi, his streetwear clothing brand and retail store front in Japan and how he connects flatland BMX into the mix. It’s a great read and insightful if you’re interested in business.
Aaron Nardi recently caught up with Ben Hucke to cruise around Portland to check out a bunch of spots and talk about what has gone down from different riders that have rolled through in the past.

I guess I would consider myself somewhat of a bag and backpack nerd. I’ve designed, used, researched, purchased, traveled heavily, and destroyed more bags than most people. My personal preferences tend to favor function and value over a cool look (although I have to say I like the look of all the bags below). So yes there are other options out there and some might be cooler, bigger, or offer more protection for one reason or another these are the bags I always come back to*. Beyond just function and style probably my favorite part about this bag that they are a little stealth and don’t scream “I HAVE EXPENSIVE SHIT IN HERE” like most tech and camera bags do…
This is awesome. Aaron Nardi and Ryan “Biz” Jordan cruise around to a few legendary spots in SoCal and talk about what’s been done at them in this new video from ESPN BMX. All you guys who are big spot nerds, this will get you all psyched!

Aaron Nardi is one of those guys in BMX that is lucky enough to travel all over the world filming and taking photos for different projects. During a lot of those trips, there ends up being a lot of extra footage and photos that go unseen! Instead of letting it all go to waste, we figured it would be rad to drop those extras online for you guys to check out! For the first round of Out of Focus, Aaron had a TON of photos leftover from the trip to Kuala Lumpur that he took with Todd Lyons for a video for ESPN BMX that you can check out after the jump! After you watch the video, check out a few select photos along with the stories that go with them below, then check out a FULL PHOTOGALLERY filled with even more photos!
ESPN BMX just dropped their video from the BACO Jam that went down a few weeks back in Warrens, Wisconsin at the Neighborhood Skatepark! Check out highlights along with some words from Chad DeGroot about the contest and the Baco documentary dropping next month!

Incase you missed it, here’s our video we dropped from the jam as well!
Aaron Nardi is always cooking up something rad over on the ESPN BMX site. Check out this new video he dropped featuring Broc Raiford where they spend a day cruising around the Volume and Odyssey warehouse ramps! Looks plenty productive to me!
