On Saturday night Dice Magazine and Bolts Action teamed up with Super Top Secret to launch Issue 58.
Salt Lake came out in full force and we threw one hell of a party. We asked Andy from Pangea Speed to help me out with "Chopper Challenges", a series of games(old and new) to get the crowd participating and see how high we could raise the bar. We started with the Slow Race, then the 2X4 Challenge, Pin The Mustache on the Hipster, Chopper PiÃ±ata, and the grand finale was the Launch Ramp contest which came down to two dudes who both went about 40 feet out on their sporties! 500 people lining the alleyway of Super Top Secret and no one got hurt, no fights, and the cops didn't get called, we were literally playing the odds! We moved everyone inside as God's Revolver went on around 10:30 and we started the Mini Ramp Jam for the following 45 minutes, so many local rippers it was insane. 900 PBR's were consumed and 15 cases of Peligroso Tequila, yikes! It was a night to remember and we definitely have big shoes to fill for the next one.
Here are some photos of the evening. The BOSS shots are from Steven Stone,
and here are some randoms from all over the place, some showing the room before the kick off.
What a fantastic time. So many thanks to Jake Hobbs, Andy Carter and Jeremy Jones. And too Steve Stone and all at Super Top Secret. Lets do it again!!!!
You know that one episode of Happy days where Fonzie is all like "Eeyyyyy someone has given me a stupid 70's ear warmer haircut and a vinyl jacket even though this show is set in the 50s" and Potsie is all like "Geez louise guys the 50s are the greatest and we should all just go to the sock hop and do the lindy hop bop" and then Ralph Malph pipes up with "Bite me douche you are retarded" then Joanie jumps in with "I heard that Chachi has a big one!" and then Al from Arnolds ends it with "Yeh Yeh Yeh Yeh..." You remember that one? Me too I hate that episode it was shite. What's not shite is the new DicE, Issue 58 in collaboration with our friends in SLC, BOLTS ACTION!
Here it is! In collaboration with Bolts Action, Salt Lake City. UT. What you get with this 50 limited collectors pack is 1 x Nixon Blaster.

Hopefully you have heard by now, but in case you haven't, we are having one hell of a shindig next weekend in Salt Lake City. Everyone is invited. We will have free tacos, drinks, Gods Revolver will be playing a set and you can skate the mini ramp, and we will be running some fun challenges organised by Andy Carter (Pangea Speed) and be giving away one rad prize from each of our sponsors. Cant wait!
A couple of weekends ago on the Analog Run my Chinese battery decided it didn't want to play any more. I had gotten as far as Ojai, about 80 miles from my starting point, and the shovelhead went from miss firing to full on shut down mode in the space of a few minutes. Jason and I investigated the problem in a convenient gas station and determined it was indeed a dead battery. Jason took off on his bike and returned 30 minutes later with a (also Chinese) replacement. I was back on the road again. Forward wind to the journeys end at Lopez Lake and there was Eric from Anti Gravity batteries putting up his tent. Oh how he laughed when I told him what had happened. Anti Gravity are Lithium-Ion batteries made in Compton, CA, They are tiny, powerful and will not break, an amazing bit of kit. He kindly sent me one over and it's now nestled in my oil tank and working like a charm. You even get chunks of self adhesive foam padding in the box with the battery to take up any slack left after removing the old piece of shit lead one. I reckon every bike should run one these little beauties.
Hope alls well in your camp. I've been in LA for the last month and hit up your LEVI's party with the stripping babes and the cinnamon tequila- pretty trippy stuff. So cool to see you guys. I've got a little blog content for you if you're interested; I've just released a new video short called MALIBU with men's skate apparel brand HUF - a first and female joy fuelled collab for HUF where their product is being advertised on women (an angle that many Skate brands have started coming to me for). It's playful, sexy, empowering and sweet, and has been pulling in high volume views since we released it.. Maybe you're interested in taking a look, it's pretty hot, easy blog filler.
Very excited to announce details for the Dice|BoltsAction Issue 58 release party. We've teamed up with @supertopsecret and will be taking over their insane spot on the evening of 10.25 from 8PM-1AM. Tons of bikes, mini ramp session, God's Revolver, tacos, beer.....what more could you ask for?! We'll also be doing some fun chopper challenges with some amazing prizes awarded by our friends on the flyer. So do us a favor, put it in your calendar and come have a great time with us. Help spread the word by reposting and using #DiceXBoltsAction, we will be picking one random winner to receive a #NixonBlaster day of the party. See you real soon! #BoltsAction #DiceMagazine #SuperTopSecret #SLC #GodsRevolver
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be at this event in Germany. Some people didn't like the new location compared to previous years when it was in Bottrop but I thought it was excellent. Good times indeed. Lagged on posting these pics 'cos I got caught up in Instagram. The ironic thing is I think blogs are way better. So anyway, here are some belated pics. Roll on next year.
