Augie Simoncini – Triptape Photos

Augie Simoncini is having a good year.  He just dropped a killer part in the new Trip Apparel – Trip Tape and got a well deserved add to the Fiend pro squad. We recently caught up with Augie to see whats up with the Trip vid, Fiend and what’s next on the agenda for him. Enjoy some photos from the Triptape courtesy of Chris Mortenson.

You’ve got a banging section in the new Trip vid. How was it filming for the video?
Filming for TripTape had similar vibes to that of the Deadline video. Filming with Ty Morrow was dope. He understands me and the way I like to approach set ups. Not to mention when he wasn’t filming he was dropping hammers of his own. He killed it on and off the bike. It makes you want to push yourself to do your best shit possible. That’s how it was on any mission with anyone from the crew. It’s an honor to have a section along side some of the best riders in the world.
Congratulations on getting on Fiend. How did that come about?
Thank you! A dream come true would be a lie. It’s something I did not see coming. The boys over at Fiend have always been family and always helped whenever I’ve needed something. At the end of the first Triptape premiere they completely surprised me at the end of the video with a dope cake and hit me with the news. I was completely caught off guard. The cake even had my graphic which they had been working on for months. Much love to the homie @Freakorico for killing it. I couldn’t believe it. Honestly it didn’t set in until the next day how crazy everything in my life had just become. A whole new door just open up in my life.
What’s next for you?
I’m trying to take advantage of the time and opportunities I have on my bike. Can’t take this shit for granted. It’s a privilege to still be doing this at 30 years old. Triptape was life as far as bmx goes for me for a while. Once the timeline had started to come together I was able to be more picky about what tricks I wanted to finish up my section. That gave me an opportunity to start stacking HD footage for a future Animal Bikes edit. Definately trying to keep the good times and good vibes rolling into this project. Having a new project to work on is both motivating and refreshing. I just want to put out the best footage I can. Looking forward to getting it done.

How Mental Illness Derailed the Career of a Promising Young Skateboarder

 


Paul Alexander was a young British skateboarder full of charisma and drive. He discovered the opportunities of sponsorship, travelling and recognition during a move from Leicester to Bristol in his late teens. Living with professional skateboarder Danny Wainwright he became engulfed in the fun, responsibility free lifestyle that came with his chosen pursuit of becoming a pro skateboarder. Paul seemed destined for success then something came to get him, something he’d never experienced before that would take his personal goals and freedom far away from his grasp in a seemingly never ending battle. This is his story, directed by friend and skateboarding companion Tim Crawley.

PERFORMANCE MIXTAPE – SOUL BMX

Scotty Cranmer- WINDY DAY AT FREEDOM SKATEPARK!

Drove down to freedom skate park in Medford, New Jersey just the big boy and myself and we were planning to meet up with Jared. The day started off with big boy playing his Didgerieoo in the parking lot and singing a song about a beautiful summer day here in May! Next we started to make our way to the skate park and big boy no only had his BMX bike but also his skateboard. It was really windy outside one of the windiest days we ever rode a skate park not only does make it hard to film but it makes it very dangerous to ride your bike, but that didn’t scare big boy from getting a flair challenge in straight away! Text of big boy jumped on his skateboard and decided to give that a try and he actually learned a new trick have to do a board slide on the skateboard! Finally Jared joined us he rolled into the skate park parking lot with his Mazda speed 3 that has 300 wheel horsepower! Jared got straight to work by doing crazy technical tricks that only Jared can do! Next up I challenged big boy to try a backflip out of the concrete bowl and he was terrified but eventually he tried it and got it! He also got redemption on me bunny hop over the wooden railing that he crashed on the first time we came to this skate park! After the boys were done riding Jared to big boy for a ride in his Mazda to show big boy how fast it is! Big boy loved it! We had so much fun riding the skate park and we are definitely coming back this summer!
