Saddle up to the bar (endo)

3 03 2016

Bar endos are a bit of a rarity in the freestyle world these days….and that’s doubly true in the case of 24″ riders.

That being said, Trent Brocker has been known to throw one down…and his bar endo picture on the Golden Gate Bridge still ranks as one of my favorite riding shots.

But other than Trent, I don’t see many riders giving the bar endo any love.

So, on the off chance I spot an old dog pulling out one of these (rare) old tricks, I’m always impressed.

Today, I stumbled across another rider doing one.

His name is Craig Stang.

The bar endo happens at the 0:52 mark of this YouTube video,

filmed on the day of [his] 40th rotation around the sun [at] Arlington Skatepark, VA [in 2010].

It looks he had a good session going on that day.

Check it.

If you’re going to be in San Francisco area next week…be sure to check out the second annual Golden Gate Bridge (GGB) Ride!

Organized by Trent Brocker, it’s going down July 16, starting off at the Clocktower (aka Ferry Building) at 11am.

Join Trent Brocker for the 2nd annual Golden Gate Bridge Ride

And it looks like it’s going to be a blast! There will be giveaway prizes for best endo, longest manual and longest bunnyhop.

Bring your A Game for the endo contest though…Trent has mad bar endo skills (see above) and will be tough to beat!

Contact Trent at chfrcka@yahoo.com for all the particulars.





Every picture tells a story

I don’t even know where to begin with this photo.

Taken during Trent B’s (goride09) recent Golden Gate Bridge ride, it’s such a classic picture.

From the the trick itself (when’s the last time you saw someone uncork a bar endo?), the Golden Gate Bridge in the background to the extended hand for extra style points…

This pic has got it all.

So good.
