One of the biggest and most important parts of keeping up with BMX and running this site is communication. There are a lot of people involved in BMX that are good to keep up with, especially the guys who are making things happen. Over the past two or so years, one guy who I have always stayed in contact with is Paul Robinson. Paul’s name might look familiar because he’s been a huge driving force behind a lot of the projects you have seen between Wethepeople, Eclat and Almond. I mean, who do you think has been in charge of getting the Eclat team all around the world lately? Between all of his different roles he handles on a day-to-day between all of the brands, Paul is also a really talented photographer, which he will never admit to. I figured if you wanted to get a better understanding of just what it’s like to work in the industry, I think his job would be one that’s good to look at to understand that you need to be on your stuff and versatile enough to handle anything that comes your way. Let’s get to know this guy a little better…
The next booth was a bit of a confusing walk around this massive event, but well worth the trip! I made my way over to the Wethepeople, Eclat and Almond booth to see what Harry, Rich and Paul had cooking for this year. Going into this one I really expected to see a TON of new product and let me tell you… There’s 150 photos from this booth because it was true. Let’s DO THIS!

Ben Gea and John Garcia brought a little kicker ramp out into the streets and had some fun for their latest Almond edit. They must have been really certain of how smooth that hill was before doing the last clip. One little hole or a medium/big rock and it would have been trouble!
