06 Nov Ian Peters unveils his ‘Endless Summer’ project.
Ian Peters hails from just outside Winnipeg and has been quietly making his mark on BMX since first showing up to the city on his bright red Sunday kit. After releasing an awesome and well received compilation edit last year (“Let’s Try That Again!“), Ian decided to keep the tradition alive and travelled over 6000km to put together this amazing second instalment.
Featuring footage from across the prairies, Chicago, and even some clips from our annual SUMMER SLAM contest. This is definitely worth watching and an excellent keepsake for everyone involved. Thanks to Ian for putting together this video. At the end of the day REPSET was founded to promote BMX and the fun that goes with it, so this really hits home.
We’ve got some words from Ian below, and a Leftovers section too! The execution was nailed on this one.
From March until October 2015, my friends & I filmed daily to make this project come together. It was a huge undertaking but I am happy with the result. The Idea was to build on the video i made last year (“Let’s Try That Again!”) and make a video with a similar layout, but bigger and better. I travelled over 6,000 kms to ride different skateparks and explore different cities and have a good time along the way. This was filmed all over Manitoba as well as in Regina SK, Kenora ON & Chicago IL.
Huge thanks to all of my friends who helped me out behind and infront of the camera and to Matt Perrin & Hayden Mills for going on trips with me. The highlight of the summer was in July when Matt & I drove to Chicago, IL to attend the annual for the Monster Energy Street Series. That’s Augie Aughinbaugh with that crazy crooked grind down the kinker which was one of the spots we stopped at during the event. Enjoy.
