In 1989 2-Hip had the Meet The Street finals in Salem Oregon. Anthony Tangelin was there filming and Snakebite got their hands on that footage almost 30 years later! The video features riding from Ron Wilkerson, Blyther, Craig Campbell, The Dirt Bros, Mike Krnaich, Dino Deluca, Gary Pollack, Eddie Roman, Joe Johnson, Dave Voelker & more! So sit back and enjoy this! Voelker by the way absolutely destroys the comp! - Snakebite

What was the reason for you to start a BMX shop? The Boarding House: The shop had been here since 1984 (called BMX Superstore), in 1997 I had the opportunity to take over from the previous owner. Having mainly worked in the skate-surf industry before, it was an easy transition to run a shop, I had experience working in skateshops before, so, just right place, right time, to carry on working in something I loved.
Ten minute little web video filmed over a 2/3 months whilst I was healing from a dislocated elbow. Everyone seemed to go pretty nuts while filming this which was good, especially considering this was all shot after work on school nights. Some clips are absolutely savage especially when you think people are up 7am the next for work. GBD. Managed to get one clip myself (which is shit).
This past September, the HERESY crew choose to embark on a week tour in the south of sunny France where they also filmed their last team video GROUP ASPHALTANIC RITES and took part in jams with the locals in Bordeaux, Toulouse and Montpellier. Good times!
