Rob DiQuattro and Damian Racut made a trip up to Milwaukee to hang out and ride with Jeff Klugiewicz, Mike Hinkens and some of the other Milwaukee locals. Check out some clips Damian filmed on his iPhone. I’d imagine more of this will be popping up since I spotted a few clips of Jeff filming too.
A couple months back, I had been seeing some tweets from Grant Castelluzzo and Mike Hinkens about some new wax they were cooking up for their selves to ride with. They were talking about testing and all these different things. For some reason the past year or so, a lot of different brands have been putting out their own wax but none seem to be as unique as what these guys were doing. It didn’t quite click until closer to them dropping the news that they were actually starting up their own company. Last week they launched the brand they are calling Our Wax with their new website and a promotional web video giving you a look at the product and some riding. We figured it would be cool to get ahold of them and find out what exactly they are doing. Let’s find out exactly what Our Wax is all about…
Here’s the fresh Our Wax promo for the company that Mike Hinkens and Grant Castelluzzo started. We’ve got a full interview dropping tomorrow morning with these guys about the wax so check back! Until then, hit play and enjoy!

A few weeks back, Madera‘s Sean Morr, Mike Hinkens, Josh Eilken and Tom Villarreal met up in California for some riding time. It looks like it was a real productive trip since they were able to come through with this damn good nearly 6 minute edit. Hit that play button now!

Damn this is good! So stoked to see some fresh footage of Josh Eilken!
“Part of the Madera team headed to California this spring of 2012 to film in the streets and shoot some photos. Two of the mornings they took it easy and headed to the Santa Barbara skatepark and filmed a few clips while hanging out on the beach.
Check out these clips and stay tuned for next month’s release of the full street edit!

Head over to the DIG website to find out more about the new wax that Mike Hinkens and Grant Castelluzzo developed and will soon be selling to all you guys who love to put your pegs, axles, pedals, crank arms, bars and whatever else you can grind to work.
“Brandon Hoerres, August Zeratsky, Andy Eineichner, Mike Hinkens, Sean Morr, Dan Kruk, unleash their pegs in this episode of Crooked World at the 4 Seasons Skatepark in Milwaukee, WI . Brandon opens up the video with a crazy hanger uprail and backwards icepick grind that even Drew Hosselton would be proud of. Even Dan Kruk gets some clips with some ender combos that the park has never seen before. That poor rail gets murdered. Filmed by Grant Castelluzzo.” – Network A
