Dan’s Comp How-To series: The Wallride

In the latest installment in the Dan’s Comp How-To video series, flow team rider and star employee Mike Barrow talks us through the always popular wallride.  Defy gravity! Impress your friends! Pretend you’re Dak Roche!  Check it out and get to work, there’s a wall with your name on it. #blackrainbows

 

Terry Adams edit for PRofile

Dan’s Comp Pro team rider Terry Adams and his Profile/Deco teammate Chad Degroot blur more lines between flatland, street and park riding in this super fun edit from a recent Profile trip to Louisiana.  The Profile Z Coaster is a common denominator, for sure.  The big revelation here…who knew TA could skate?  #jackofalltrades

 

Flow team additions!

We’re expanding the squad!  We are pleased to announce the addition of two rad dudes to the Dan’s Comp Flow team.  St. Louis local and Midwest mainstay Jordan “Habo” Gutierrez has been flying the Dan’s Comp flag for years, attending events, riding in shows and supporting the brand in general.  Adding Habo to the flow program was an obvious choice, which shoulda/coulda/woulda happened sooner.  Here’s what Habo has to say about it  “So stoked to start off 2016 by repping one of the best brands in BMX”  and here is his senior portrait, suitable for framing.

Next up, Michael McKenzie is an Evansville, Indiana local who is part of the Dan’s Comp crew and has been putting in serious work on the bike for the last couple of years.  We’ve been helping Mike out a little and he’s paid his dues, so now he’s officially on the Flow team as well.  Mike, too, is stoked: “I could not be more stoked for the opportunity to ride for such an amazing company like Dan’s Comp”.  Welcome to the program, boys!

More Dan’s Comp Pro team news.  We’re adding Mark Burnett to the pro roster as well.  Mark had a big year in 2015, being added to the Sunday and Shadow pro teams, traveling the world, and his breakout section in the Shadow What Could Go Wrong DVD, as well as consistently putting out clips via Instagram.  Mark is one of the young guns, doing big things, and we’re proud to have him as part of the Dan’s Comp pro team line up.  Here’s what Mark has to say about it: “It’s such an honor, it’s seriously a dream come true. I’m so hyped.”

In honor of this occasion, let’s give Mark’s Vital/Dan’s team edit from November another look.

Cult in Torrance with Dak Roche

The Cult Crew comes through with another sick edit.  This time, the boys hit up a plethora of spots in Torrance, CA and give them a proper sessioning.  Dan’s/Cult powerhouse Dak Roche has a full assortment of clips in this one.  Check it and wreck it.

Nathan Williams in TX

Dan’s Comp pro team rider Nathan Williams recently went on vacation to Lubbock, Texas with his family and filmed this cool little edit. Cameo by Jameson the dog. The feel-good hit of 2016.

We are super syked to announce that Nathan Sykes has been bumped up from Flow-to-Pro for the 2016 Dan’s Comp team.  Here’s what Nathan had to say about the promotion: “Couldn’t be more excited! Stoked to be a part of a great company and stacked team of dudes.”. Welcome to the big league, Nathan!  Look for more BMX action from Nathan this year as he puts in work for Colony Bikes, his own Locals Only brand of course, Dan’s Comp.  Now is a good time to re-visit Nathan’s Vital/Dan’s Comp video from last fall as well:
