So after a few months in Europe, Radface made his way to the United States. While staying with me in Denver, Colorado, Dylan ate all my food, drank all my beer and broke my couch and we occasionally rode. On one of those occasions we went down to Rampart Range where we met up with the rest of the crew, havoc ensued.
The best of the beast, mountainboard videos from around the globe. Some old, some new and some that probably shouldn’t have been posted in the first place. Take note of the style from country to country some dirty action in these.
England – Ye Olde British Cunts
You know all these guys and you’ve probably seen all of these edits as well. That’s because they’re kings, straight royalty on the mountainsticks.

France – J’ai un escargot dans mon oreille
Maybe you aren’t aware of this but the French rip, and I include Dutch friend Nicky Geerse in this group because he speaks French better than he does Dutch.

Russia – I like my borscht without the beets
I just spent a week in Moscow where it was -20 degrees for 6 days straight, not exactly a hospitable climate; especially not for mountainboarding. Despite the long winters Russia has well funded events(thanks to Tunetz), super good riders and a communist government.

Australia – Sheep shaggers in my book
The bastard children of the United Kingdom and savage beasts. Watch the gymnast do a double backflip! Dyl Radface had a seizure while eating a big mac this past summer and my girlfriend thinks he’s got Aspergers syndrome.

USA – McDonalds & Walmart now open in South Pole, Antarctica
We take claim to the creation of the sport. We sell you boards. Occasionally ride them. Mostly we just put a lot of time and money into shooting video of it. Are tricks aren’t the best but we have way more fun than everyone else. Truth.

Spain – Pelea de gallo o lidia
I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about Spain, nor do I know of many Spanish riders but I do know Iguria park looks like an amazing place to ride. Check out the Facebook video.
I don’t know what flows through the water in Japan but no matter what board sport it is the Japenese seem to have the best style.

Brazil – I think there are more super models per capita in Brazil than any where else in the world
These guys have been riding hard for a long time and possibly the most passionate about it, I mean you’ve probably heard of Tony Dogga right?

Germany – Hmmmmm
I almost forgot about the Germans, never forget the German’s they’ll fuck you up. How could I forget Winterberg possibly the gnarliest park in mountainboarding. If you never saw that video of TK doing front 7’s over their massive 40 foot jump its worth searching for.

Summer has arrived, lots of riding, lots of new spots to ride and we’re just two months shy of having out good friends from around the world come out to the states for some riding. Last year Dylan & Nicky Geerse did a transcontinental tour and made a stop in the states for some demos and events. It sounds like it will be going down again. Here are a few clips that Nicky shot of Dylan on the road last year.
Last week I escaped from behind my computer and took a trip to Belgium where I had the pleasure of meeting two fine chaps from the BFC, Martyn James & Nicky Geerse. The first night we met in Brussels and the night consisted of lots of beer and absinthe, dancing and was proceeded by a hefty hangover in the AM.
Little Delrium with BFC
That next morning we took a two hour trip to southern Belgium to ride Wayni Park, possibly one of the finest mountainboard parks in the world, complete with a long boarder cross track, tons of rails and some large jumps. Oh ya they have a lift so you never have to take off your board and you can just make laps all day, and you wonder why all the best riders in the world are coming out of Europe. Despite the rain from previous days we were still able to ride most of the park, with the exception of the large jump.
Riding with Martyn and Nicky was mind blowing, the Euros have so much control of there board and even the smallest of tricks look amazing. In a span of 30 minutes I watch Nicky stomp every 540, none of which were huck and all were grabbed, pretty impressive. You can expect to see some web edits coming from Nicky and Martyn’s road trip in the next few weeks on the Yum Yum BFC site and rumor has it they are putting out another full length movie shortly. Looking forward to seeing both Nicky and Martyn over here in the states this summer.
In the mean time enjoy some of the BFC edits below.
