Isaac Lesser took a trip on down south to Cape Town, South Africa for the Ultimate X Fest contest. While he was there he pulled out the camera to document some of the sessions that went down, along with a look at what he got into off his bike as well. This video features riding from Isaac and a handful of other familiar faces. They cruise a few real good spots around Cape Town, leading to some real solid clips. It looks like Isaac had a great time during his trip to us! Enjoy!
The raw cuts from the “Nearly 4K” Video continue! This time around we get a mix of raw footage from the trip to Mallorca that Alex Donnachie, Kriss Kyle, Jason Phelan, David Grant, Isaac Lesser and a few others took to stack clips. This is packed full of a ton of amazing riding, so it’s safe to say this was one of the more productive trips, plus the spots are definitely on point! Check it out!
While filming for the Nearly 4K DVD, the Nearly BMX crew took a trip to Malaga, Spain to explore the city and skateparks. Hit play to check out a bunch of footage that didn’t make the cut for the final video featuring George Eccleston, Isaac Lesser, Chaz Mailey, Alex Donnachie and Kriss Kyle! You already know with a line up like this, these “scraps” are actually really good.
“FUSE is stoked to welcome Isaac Lesser to the team through SNAP Distribution. Hailing from Brighton in the UK, Isaac Lesser is a powerhouse on a bike and can rip apart (or build) anything put in front of him. Building skateparks for a living, there is nothing that Isaac can’t ride the hell out of.
Isaac is no stranger to putting out quality video projects. If you’re not familiar with Isaac we strongly urge you to check out his incredible “Build It” video part from last year. Isaac is now in the process of filming his welcome video with friend Mike King which you can expect to see surface in the near future…”
Jason Phelan wanted to wish Isaac Lesser a Happy Birthday, but instead of just dropping him a line on Facebook, he stepped things up and whipped together this quick edit of some of the clips of Jason that he had. Hit play and take in some dialed riding, a few funny no riding clips and some high fives! Happy Birthday, Isaac!

Jason Phelan always putting his own twist on things. Here’s his latest video featuring him and Isaac Lesser getting down at
Jurassic Park Euro Camp over in Spain. As expected from these two, there was plenty of dialed riding going on since the ramp setup is super good. Hit play and take it all in.
“Myself and Isaac Lesser were live on twitter/periscope for four days in the blistering sun from 9am till 6pm. Our live feed got cut short due to Isaac knocking himself out on the last day but all n all is was a rad few days and this is what we managed to get done. Oh we also thought we were riding jurassic park due to the amazing location and hill’s surrounding this amazing park that is Eurocamp.”
Last week we got a look at Isaac Lesser’s crazy “Build It” video, but what you probably didn’t know is that this was way more complicated than it seemed! Watch this Behind the Scenes BMX video giving you some insight into the project from building the ramps, breaking his foot and getting healthy and back on his bike to crashes and more. It’s definitely an interesting watch that gives some perspective on the challenges that come with filming.
“Isaac Lesser has been riding ROM Skatepark for almost 15 years. Being the oldest skatepark in the UK, the classic, concrete haven boasts endless lines and haunting transitions.
However Isaac decided it was time to think outside the box, and with the addition of a few wooden extras, was able to open up gaps, lines and transfers that nobody would’ve thought possible.
You’ve seen the riding video, now go behind the scenes and learn what it took to make this project possible.”
