Former PGA Champion Padraig Harrington surprised the crowd when he performed a ‘Happy Gilmore’ drive off Valhalla’s 10th tee as part of the 96th PGA Championship ‘Longest Drive’ contest in Louisville, Kentucky.
Brisbane, Australia’s own Logan Martin is back blowing people’s f**ken minds with an incredible new web edit for Jetpilot. Is there anything he can’t do? So many gnarly combinations and bangers, this footage had me in awe.
“If you’ve ever met Drew Bezanson, you know that there is a love and passion for what he does. He eats, sleeps and breathes BMX. Anything less than perfectly dialed and executed isn’t acceptable, and there is a method to Drew’s seeming madness. A strive for perfection starts long before Drew ever steps on his bike. His motocross background has formed a lot of his approach to BMX. He follows Supercross just as closely as BMX, and the level of athleticism in moto—something often looked down upon in BMX—is what he models himself after. Training is an inaccurate word, but Drew puts forth an effort to excel in everything he does. It’s admirable. Super foods. Ice baths. It’s a level that BMX isn’t used to.” Shout out to Adam Watkins for the submission.
The movie will drop in the American winter of 2014. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the awesomeness. Pastrana is also releasing a new 10-part web series called The Pastrana Project. The series will provide a closer look at the Nitro Circus crazies that Pastrana has recruited for the new movie and give behind the scenes access to some of the stunts. The Pastrana Project will start August 8 and new episodes will release each Friday.
This is the largest urban zip-line ride in the world—and it must be the most insane too. Watch these guys zip down a 10,000-foot line placed on top of a 700-foot building in Panama City. Then half way through it and as if this weren’t scary enough on its own, they let go and launch themselves into an epic sort of base jump. Watch it now!
“In late fall, we traveled to the high elevations of the San Juan mountains to explore the vast range and to test out our prototype suspension platform. Our trip took us to the southwest part of Colorado because the San Juan’s contain some of the most rugged terrain in Colorado and offer a loose network of trails — some fully developed, others just old mining paths filtering down the mountainside.” – Yeti Cycles
The idea was brilliant. Send two surfers, one of the world’s best in big waves, and one of the world’s best all-around, for a massive swell at an incredibly dangerous surf spot, get them to catch the same wave, shoot a photo and you’re done. Just like that, you’ve got the most interesting and coincidentally, the most dangerous surf image ever taken. On Friday, August 1st, a photo that had to that point only been a dream, suddenly turned to reality.
If you haven’t heard, or don’t give a f*ck about the NBA, LeBron James caused shock waves when he announced he would be returning to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers after his four year stint at Miami Heat.
