In a world where, thanks to technology, we see countless videos on a daily basis, there’s definitely an appreciation for film work that has a lot of quality, time and effort put into it in comparison to 15 second clips filmed during a quick session. Our good friend JC Pieri is an example of a film maker that is always producing high quality videos that really show more than just the crazy riding that went down. The other day we were fortunate enough to get a sneak preview of his latest video project “GTTNSIDEWAYS” that he worked on with Coco Zurita. This video is much more than just your typical BMX video and incorporates some amazing locations, Coco’s motorcycle, car and riding and some great film work. We were beyond psyched on this video, so we figured it would be cool to talk to JC and Coco to find out a little bit of what went into the 10 days they spent working on the video! Check out the interview below along with the trailer. The full video will be online February 15th and you will not be disappointed!
Here’s one we’re really excited to show you guys because we have been working with our good friend JC Pieri and Coco Zurita on an interview that will be dropping tomorrow talking about their new film project, GTTNSIDEWAYS, that will be dropping soon! Above is the teaser to give you just a taste of what’s to come… Trust us when we say the full video is a masterpiece. Enjoy and get psyched.

Check out Coco Zurita getting some clips during a backyard halfpipe session! Slow-mo and style for miles!
Somehow this one slipped through the cracks last week! The 4th and final episode of the Red Bull Makin’ It trip takes Jaden Leeming out of an airplane and on the ramps of Woodward west with Hucker and Coco Zurita! Take a look!
“The final episode of Red Bull Makin’ It is all about going big and learning new tricks. After an adrenaline filled morning of skydiving, Jaden heads to Camp Woodward with Mike “Hucker” Clark to casually stomp some Opposite 360 Down Whips and to session the massive mega ramp.”
ESPN BMX caught up with Coco Zurita in his hometown of Santiago, Chile to check out the spots and see what the city has to offer!
Coco Zurita and Yogu Yogu (no idea) teamed up for a contest on the beach in Maitencillo, Chile. Take a peek at the action that went down. I wouldn’t mind going to a contest on a beach in Chile… Just sayin’.
Last month, some of the Vans team headed down to Chile to meet up with Coco Zurita to do a few demos, check out the parks and take in the sights! This video gives you a quick look at how the trip went. Looks like it was a hell of a good time to me!
“October, 2013. Coco Zurita and Vans Chile invited Colin Mackay, Dennis “DMC” McCoy and BMX team manager, Jerry Badders to Santiago for a weekend of BMX demo’s. First stop was the Betterland School, second stop was at the Vans Royal Side Stripe event at Parque Los Reyes, and the third stop was the Araucano Park. The boys were treated to beautiful weather, great food and a ton of BMX fans!
