This past weekend on Saturday we held our highly anticipated BACK TO TRACK trick track competition. It’s the first trick track specific competition that’s happened since around 2009 and it was a major success! To give some info about how the day went, we started at our original spot and people started showing up. It was the PERFECT spot. Basketball court, poles to spin off, and a bank next to it to do tricks on.
Almost immediately, a park official came up and told us we all had to leave. It was a scramble to find a new spot and get everyone there, but we ended up at a park in long beach that worked out perfectly (sign of relief). We had about 50 people total and the energy was great. With the resurgence of Trick Track riding, I think people were excited to have an event specifically for it. We’re gonna be dropping a bunch of photos from the day this week as well as a video recap on our Youtube channel, so keep an eye out for that. If you didn’t make it out, I highly recommend you make it out next year cause it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, rode, and everything in between.

Destroy just released their new “Destroy Unicorn Killer Comp” frame and it looks killer. A more compact version of their famous Unicorn Killer series. Thing looks ready to shred out the gate. Heres what Destroy has to say about it:
“The evolution of a classic DESTROY FGFS Frame. Built for all around carnage on the street at the park heck why not dirt. A compact version of the frame that set modern day FGFS. Now with a geometry oriented to fit a greater range of riders while offering a centered and reliable under body feel.
With the idea always being that the UNICORN KILLER COMP would be put though constant torture we complimented this frame with one of our strongest rear ends and dropouts that fit 14mm axels.”

WE SQUADDED THE FUCK UP last Sunday and got together for a super fun day edit at one of the most amazing skateparks around, Stanton. There’s honestly nothing better than getting together with your friends and pushing each other to do tricks. Check it out. A Turf x Suckmycog production.
In todays video, squad (Deacon, Zach, Gage, myself) hit up downtown HB to lurk the streets and back alleys to ride our fixies on things. Hope you enjoy! Subscribe to the new channel!
A couple of your boys (me and Zach) made it out the local Common Crew jam that went down a couple days ago and got some clips in Francis’ vlog, check it out!
Zach has been killing under the radar in the FGFS scene for quite some time now, so I caught up with him to get a little insight into his life and why he’s stuck with FGFS all these years. Check it out.
