Miles Rogoish – Gap-to-wall.
This is one of those photos that plays tricks on your mind when you picture where Miles actually came from to get to the wall and how he pulled back into the wedge. I originally shot this as a composite so that I could have one photo of Miles on the quarter pipe on the left and one on the wall as you see here but it just didn’t have the right feel when I put it together. I ended up liking the shadow more than anything and decided to go with this single image instead. I also typically never light my photos with a single strobe but that’s exactly what I did here and it ended up working out. That just serves as a reminder to never get stuck using the same set-up over and over and to always keep your options open. Shout-out to the Stranger crew and Aaron Brenner for letting me shoot at the warehouse.

Italian Quintin Co rider Mirco Andreani decided to leave his city and move to Barcelona to share a flat with Simone Barraco. Here’s a little preview of what he’s been up to so far. Looking forward to seeing what happens the rest of the month he’s out there.
Quintin’s Chinese distributor sent over this video that they’ve been working on for awhile now. It’s always refreshing to see people taking on large projects. Here’s what they had to say about it:
“A group of bmx riders come from different parts in CHINA,but all with one love on bmx.They keep riding for fun,for life,for their dream. Thank you for sharing our best time and memories in this video, we “LINK” because what we love.
Roy Van Kempen and assorted Orange Juice affiliates traveled to Spain for some good times on the BMX. Click below to check out some pics and check back soon for the video.
After the big success of the Orange Juice x Vans Barcelona trip in 2013 we decided, together with Vans, to organize another trip in 2014.
For this trip, we decided to go to Malaga for 9 days with a group of riders from Belgium and Holland. The Belgium riders joining the trip were Kenzo de Witte, riding for Vans and Thijs Vervaeck who owns a BMX shop in Gent, Belgium called ‘The Bridge’. The Dutch riders consisted of Vans rider Mark Vos, Orange Juice supporter Jorn Tuijnman and Orange Juice co-owner Roy Van Kempen. Our film crew was made up of co-owner from Orange Juice Tom Lammerse and Daan van Citters. Last but not least, Syo van Vliet was there as a photographer.
Having 8 of your best friends on a trip is definitely the best. The overall vibes on the trip were amazing; we made dinner for eachother, had plenty of laughs, drank beers, gambled and shot some crazy clips. Words can’t explain how good this trip was but the pictures and video will definitely give you a taste of what the 2014 Malaga trip was like.
