It’s always a good day when Andy Maguire hits you up with a new video of him and his crew! They might not have been pumping out videos like they used to, but they’re still out there having a damn good time. Nothing but street, park and trails goodness for you to enjoy here!
Dammmmmmn. Chris McMahon uploaded a classic for you guys to check out. This is Cameron Birdwell’s section from the Transit 9 video “Nine Lives”. This video came out back in 2002 which means things were way different back then. This part was way ahead of its time because Cameron was doing a lot of crazy shit you don’t even see today like x-up crooked grinds. Check this out!
Haha epic song choice….

“It was about a year ago when I first heard about Jonas – people telling me about some Long Island-to-Berkeley transplant, doing all kinds of crazy moves that nobody else would imagine doing. I think it was Kurt Russell or John Ivers that introduced me to him out at the Martinez skatepark, and, on seeing Jonas ride, I was convinced that the rumors about his riding were true.
After taking a trip to the Glory Hole fullpipe with him last summer, I felt that an edit of Jonas – showcasing his unique style and trick set – would be a lot of fun to work on, and even more enjoyable to take in and watch. This turned out to be the truth – we’re stoked on it, and we hope that you, the viewer, will be as stoked as we are. Be sure to check out Jonas’ bio in Dig 84!

“In early July, the Zorg Bike Co team cruised down to San Diego in a borrowed Econoline van with a trailer filled with bikes. The team mainly stuck to the parks, but found some time to check out some of San Diego’s street spots on the week-long trip.

“About a month before the Mosqueda Summer Pro/Am, I decided that it would be a good idea to turn a one-day trip to Fresno into a three-day roadtrip with a few friends. S&M’s CJ Arnold, Stephen Perjanik, and Solid’s Tanner Easterla all agreed to come along for the ride, and, after some discussion and planning, a loose plan was formed to spend two days in Fresno, and to ride Modesto on the way back.
The trip ended up being a real good time, with the guys catching clips on Friday and Saturday at several Fresno street spots, as well as the Todd Beamer skatepark and Woodward Park dirt jumps, before heading to Mosqueda for the Pro/Am. Getting an invite to a post-jam party at Sanctuary, a BMX bed and breakfast located in Oakhurst, we decided to check out the party and ride Sanctuary’s air-conditioned indoor ramp setup on Sunday morning before heading home, by way of Modesto.
Thanks to Fresno’s Jason Johnson, Joey Ceppaglia, and Ryan Garcia, Waylon and the rest of the crew at Sanctuary, and Modesto’s Bob Randel and Anthony Renda.” – Chris McMahon / ESPN
“EYE/AVE rider Aaron Day’s trails are dialed. Located near Redding, Calif., the trails have been running since October 2009, when Aaron and Curtis Ide began digging. Curtis later moved on to Portland, Ore., but Aaron kept up the work alone for a time, eventually enlisting help from local rider Joe Sanchez and the POWS.
After throwing a small post-Hella Track jam last year, Aaron decided to throw a bigger jam this year, this time taking place the day before Hella Track. With a larger-than-expected turnout of riders from throughout the state, a wild jam went down, with stylish trail maneuvering, classic contest tricks, and everything in-between being thrown down on some of the cleanest lips and landings in Northern California.” – ESPN

Over the years, I’ve followed Chris’ work from back a few years ago when he was first doing the SJBMX website all the way up to these days where his work can be found on ESPN. In that time, his film work has improved and developed into some real good work. I figured it was time to get him some questions about himself and his film work. Let’s take a look at this filmer/geologist’s work…
