ANNOUNCEMENT: SUCK MY COMP RETURNS THIS NOVEMBER!

You read that right, Suck My Comp is officially BACK ON! After a 2 year hiatus thanks to covid, Suck My Comp 5 is taking place this November 19th in good ol’ Long Beach at Mcbride skatepark. FGFS events are few and far between, so I highly suggest you make it out.

If you’re competing, pre-register HERE!

More details:

  • If you have a frame sponsor, you will automatically be placed into the “PRO” division.
  • “PRO” winners will take home cash while “AM” winners will take home prizes.
  • All entry fees go directly into the pot for the pro division winners to take home.
  • We will also be contributing extra $$$ from our pockets as a pot bonus
  • Time: 10AM Pacific time
  • Date: November 19th, 2022
  • Location: Mcbride Skatepark, 1550 Martin Luther King Jr Ave, Long Beach, CA 90813
  • If you plan on competing, I would highly recommend pre-registering here. It helps us organize better plus it’s cheaper for you. If that isn’t an option for you though, you can register day-of for $10.
  • Would recommend bringing a chair if you’re just spectating
  • Please be on time. We will have a 30 minute grace period to allow you to show up, but we will start without you if you aren’t present.

Social media algorithms are pretty messed up these days, so please please please help spread the word and lets make this weekend a good old fashioned fixie freestyle palooza! See you in November!

Also big thanks to our sponsors Ruff, FOAD, Destroy, Master, Fixated, Broke Boyz, and Merritt for helping make this happen.

New York Summer Series Kicks Off

A fresh New York monthly summer series has emerged thanks to NY community figurehead @brokeshutter. This monthly trick event will take place in Brooklyn and will crown a king of New York every month! If you can go, please do! Cause we need more events like this and when they do happen, we need to make them pop off.

Onile Birthday Jam 2022

A rider out in the Philippines named Onile recently hosted a bike jam for his birthday which included some FGFS and Trick Track action! Turnout looked great and looked like a good time all around. Congrats to the homie Kyle for taking 1st in Trick Track and Irish Santiago for taking 1st in FGFS!

Fukuoka Loco Coverage

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a contest out of Japan (or anywhere for that matter), but YSO put on the “Fukuoka Loco” competition this past weekend and it looked like a bunch of fun. It’s really great to see the Japan scene in full effect. They house some of my favorite riders and really bring a unique style to FGFS, so this really puts a smile on my face and great to see some dudes out there that I haven’t seen ride in a while.

The format on this is interesting. For one: they combined trick track and FGFS. Not sure how I feel about that since the styles are hard to compare, but still cool to see everyone together. The bracket style play is interesting too. That format hasn’t really been adopted in the states, maybe it could be cool to implement?

RSK ended up taking the win on this one with Takashi taking 2nd place. Some solid riding all around though. I got word that they’re doing another competition in Osaka next. Maybe see you there?
