The FBM crew made their way to the swimming pool on one of the hottest days of the summer. Unfortunately there wasn’t any water, but Kaleb Bolton, Curtis Cantwell, Seamus McKeon, Declan Murray, The Hallahans and a handful of others were able to get plenty of riding time in. Check out what the guys threw down during the session.
The 3rd stop of the FBM X DIG DIY World Championships went down at the Whipsnake park out in the Carolina’s the other weekend. Despite some rain that kept things moist, it looks like everyone was able to get plenty of riding and good times in. This one looked more like a camping trip with friends than a contest, and that is what makes this so good. Hit play and take it all in!
“Deep in the cut of the US Carolina pine forests, completely off the grid and removed from normal society, sits a DIY/artist Shangri La of sorts, known as Whipsnake.
Built by underground DIY champion Tom Risser, this low-key spot showcases acres of his eclectic metal sculptures and this homemade concrete wonderland…
Miles from anywhere, and conveniently located right in-between somewhere and nowhere, we posted up for a weekend campout, for stop 3 on the FBM X DIG DIY World Tour, enduring mosquitos, coyotes, hundred degree weather, intense summer storms, and believe it or not, no phone service. Pack it in, pack it out, bring what you need, and leave with what you brought, minus a gallon or so of sweat, some blood, and whatever was inside the cooler…
Places like Whipsnake are wildly different than pre fab local parks, and most public spots, primarily known by word of mouth, amongst people in the ‘know’, places like this are hallowed ground for riders who build their own spots to ride, whether it’s a ramps, a set of trails or DIY concrete park, spot building and maintenance adds another layer all together to the riding experience, and Whipsnake is pinnacle to that whole idea.
