Concussions are serious business, and unfortunately rather common in the Action Sports. Many people, even physicians have written them off as minor, with little permanent damage.
A recent study

The New York Times has an interesting feature up about Afghanistan's first Skateboarding school. It's not something I'd thought much about but here in the States we talk about "keeping kids out of trouble" and skateboarding is definitely a global way to achieve that.

George Gallo is one of the funniest people I've ever met. George goes way back in BMX, and is a true pioneer of "street comedy."
George and Kenan Harkin used to travel quite a bit together, and made for an interesting pair, always producing humor along the way. At one point they even infiltrated the MTV Video Music Awards in NYC, with George being interviewed on the Red Carpet and everything.
I haven't seen George in a while, but his website has some amazing stuff on it.… Continue

Simpel Session 2009 was without question the most blogged contest in BMX history. Somehow, in an age where the media has no interest in competitions, Simpel Session has created an event that you can't help but noting. And they've done so from the unlikely far-off land of Estonia.
The television competition model is changing completely, and Simpel Session, the favorite competition of the BMX world, is on the forefront of what the market wants and needs. Its live webcast for Skate and… Continue

Today is Mat Hoffman's birthday, so what better time to post up this video from the original big ramp... No, not the "Mega Ramp." That was a knock off of a concept Mat Hoffman pioneered many years early.
It wasn't done for TV cameras, or a big crowd. It was done for fun, and that's what riding BMX is all about.
Check it here.

The excitement in my office took an unexpected turn yesterday when the always entertaining skateboarder Ben Graham stopped in, on his way to Barcelona to film. Ben had his backpack, skateboard and a suitcase full of underwear.
Not since the seminal film "The Big Lebowski" have I witnessed a man put his underwear in a breifcase. I was impressed, so we captured the moment.…

Simpel Session in Estonia has become, hands down, the most anticipated BMX contest of the year for the riders. The amazing course, and good times had by all far outweigh any prize money that could be offered. It all gets back to why we all do this in the first place — fun.
Just check out the rider list and it's clear that this is going to be the best one yet.
Just a brief sampling of the heavy hitters:
Chris Doyle USA
Sebastian Keep GBR
