A couple weeks ago I was excited to dip my feet in the snow and document some fun having wild guys on snowboards up at Timberline Lodge. The event was created and co-produced by Yobeat with help from the fine staff of Timberline. With a late season snow fall the night before and the day of, it turned out to be an event destined for greatness. I partnered up with Jared Souney to capture some of the days highlights for a video to be posted up on the Yobeat site. With a day of filming and riding done I spent the night putting together the edit. This is the result. Special thanks to Kenny Loggins for having a song so iconic that even 2 weeks later I still cannot get it out of my head. Uh..
Recently I had an incredible opportunity to help document an interview with a major player in the history of bmx, Mike Daily, who was the creator of Aggro Rag. Aggro Rag had a big part in the direction bmx has gone since the early 80′s. Documenting some of the greats of their time in a DIY fashion was it’s reigning legacy. This was a fun project to work on and one I was glad to be a part of.
Recently I made the trek back east to the town of Burlington just 15 miles north of the city of Boston. While there I made a side trip up to New Hampshire to do some exploring with my father, Tony Rainha. One part of that day was a visit to a short walking trail scattered with ice and crusty snow which led us to Profile Falls. Continue reading →
Recently BSR’s Joe Loumena and Flatwebtv’s Anthony Buglio came together with many others to bring us the annual Enjoy The Trick Winter Classic flatland jam and high hop comp. These are always a good time with people traveling from far to be in the Portland city limits for what ends up being a good time for everyone on a bike. Continue reading →
I Spent some time up on Mt. Hood a couple days ago joining in on the frosty fun with the backbones of Yobeat, Brooke Geery and Jared Souney. With partly cloudy skies filled with random snow flurries and some spectacular mountain views and lighting, we spent most of the day exploring the vast terrain Timberline has to offer. With Brooke Geery as a guide you can’t go wrong. As the sun set and the instagram images began to flood in almost as fast as the drinks, we set up for the “Friday Night Features” rail jam that was taking place just outside the bottom lodge.

People are inherently drawn to where the land ends and the ocean begins. The sounds, the ever changing landscapes, they all play an incredible game with our senses and curiosity. This short was filmed along the northwest coast in a few locations. Continue reading →
Another year has come and gone for the Enjoy The Trick Summer Jam. This years jam went down in the Lumberyard Bmx Park basement with several sponsors showing their generosity in a major way. Myself, Anthony Buglio, Justin Hoey, and Bruce Crisman were on hand to film the actions of the day. In collaboration with FlatwebTv and The Community Media I put together this edit of the days highlights and some of the nights as well. So enjoy the show.
We the People’s Tim Storey and Nick Harris took the long flight from Australia to the great northwest for their first American adventure. A few Steigl’s later and many stories to tell this video captures their perception of some of the American landscape. Filmed by Chester Blacksmith and myself. Edited by me.
At the beginning of summer I participated on a bike ride that was part of the annual Pedalpalooza bike festival here in the great northwest. The festival celebrates the use of bikes in all forms by showcasing several bike rides for a whole month. Some of these rides include the international naked bike ride, bike jousts, bridge tour, and the one I attended (ADU Bike Tour). The bike ride was intended to showcase a few of the many tiny houses and accessory dwellings growing in the Portland area. These houses are small add ons to existing structures and the layout and designs were something to appreciate. I was asked to document the ride and put together a little video to share with the rest of the world. This is that video. Continue reading →
