There’s a ton of rad ‘scrap’ footage in here filmed on a couple phones and whatever else Montreal’s Dazed Crew had in handy.  Featuring clips from a whole ton of dudes including Adriano Rotondo, Anthony Tupin, Brendan Pilon, Dazed Crew, Dillon Lloyd, Giuliano Rotondo, Kevin Irvin, Matt Duquette, Montreal, and Zac Duquette. Last clip is the clear winner.

Super bummed that I missed out on The Taz contest. I’ve said it a million times but the park is absolutely perfect. Best indoor in the country right now, no doubt. The video above has some absolutely crazy riding in it. Make sure you go to this next year, if you missed it.

The Taz has to be one of the best indoor facilities in the country. It was an absolute treat getting to ride it with the Macneil / Tenpack guys this summer, and I’m super bummed to not be going. The Taz is one of the biggest skateparks in North America, located just outside of downtown Montreal, and just over the boarder from the Eastern States. If you’re in the area I’d definitely make an effort to come out. After all, The Beast is gunna be there.

The city of Montreal, Ten Pack Distribution and Element 51 are proud to announce the BMX Pepsi Pro/Am Contest on Saturday October 24, from 10:00AM to 9:00PM at Le TAZ Skatepark in Montreal, QC.

Jeremy Deme threw the Presence DVD online about a month ago, which makes this late, but fuck it. I don’t even think we were posting a month ago. I was lucky enough to get a copy of this right when it came out and it was definitely worth a watch. Jeremy definitely shreds behind the lens, and all these cats shred in front of it. Featuring Greg Flag, Corey Dewey, Eric Trepanier, Jeremy Deme, Justin Kirnan, and Mike Fiz.

You can check out the rest of the sections after the jump.

If you’re in the area this weekend, I suggest checking this out.

This year Presence Jam is one big street Jam that will end at UAB. Saturday August 22nd everyone meet up at the Big-O slant walls at Noon (12pm). We will hit up a bunch of spots as we ride west, like the Rail school, the slant slabs, bum park/triangle ledges/ st-henry school and possibly a couple others along the way. Nothing set in stone. The idea is to try and be at UAB around 6-7 so we can have a high hop contest/ high 180 contest and a big BBQ with beers. Come and have fun!!!
