Lifer: Alfred “Big Al” Freeman

9 10 2015

If you haven’t checked out the LIFERS video series put out by Hippie Josh yet…you’re missing out.

It’s billed as a video series “featuring riders whose desire and dedication is unrivaled. The Hardest of the Hardcore… Lifers who bleed BMX”.

It definitely lives up to that billing.

One episode that caught my eye recently is the one that showcased Alfred “Big Al” Freeman. An Austin OG, Big Al has a passion for BMX…and racing in particular.

It’s cool to hear about his start in the sport (at a relatively later age than most riders) and how much of riding is mental.

You can really see how much fun he’s having…and how that has influenced his longevity in the sport.

Can’t help but smile after seeing this.





Allied Compound shred session

21 12 2012

Back in October, we checked out some great shots of Buddy Sardenga busting out his Beelzebike the 20 666 ‘er at the Allied Compound in Manor, Texas (just outside of Austin).

Now we’ve got some video.

Not only do you get Buddy shredding (big beard, big bike, white helmet and red Vans) but also Vernon from Indust riding one of his 22 inchers and Hippie Josh who handled the majority of the filming (along with riding).

Looks like good times at a super fun spot.
