Riley Nickerson goes hard when he hits the streets. He also does it with a style that has creeped into the forefront of legendary riding. Traveling across Europe and the greatest country in the world Riley’s 686 Seconds part is a full blown banger. Tech, style, and grace are the three things that’ll make you watch the Riley Nickerson 686 Seconds part over and over.
I first met Ethan Morgan in 2004 as his coach at Windells Camp and then we crossed paths again in 2006 at the Trofeo Topolino Jr. World Games contest in Italy. Ethan has really blown up over the last few years. Need proof? Check out the edit above.
Ben Ferguson is becoming one of the most well rounded snowboarders on the planet. This Burton Presents feature highlights Ben raw talent across a wide range of terrain. With mentors like Danny Davis and Terje Haakosen it’s no wonder how Ben’s transitioned from transition into steeps and deeps so well.
I have a strong feeling Burton will be holding on to this kid for a while.

Let’s face it, we all love watching the world’s best mtb riders send it at Red Bull Rampage. Backflips over canyons, massive drops, and sketchy lines at insanely high speeds make for quite the show, especially while done on Mountain Bikes.
But, crashes are inevitable, and the consequences in Virgin, Utah are unforgivable to say the least; falling off cliffs, into canyons and casing 25m jumps…you know, the usual dangers of riding your bike on, and off, a totally raw mountain.
In anticipation of the 10th edition of Rampage, let’s take a look at this compilation of the gnarliest crashes over the years.
“I was trolling for bonito off the coast of Gaviota State Beach when my kayak was hit in the back. I turned around to see a very aggressive hammerhead shark ramming/biting my kayak and decided I needed to defend myself. I hit the shark over and over and over with my paddle before he finally settled down. He then stalked me all the way back to shore, occasionally approaching me again and receiving another paddle to the face. Even after I was on shore, he remained in about 4 feet of water pacing back and forth like he was just waiting for round #2. Haha.”
Do you need a vessel so fight sharks off in? Look no further, we have kayaks in stock HERE.
