Fogelsode S2 #9: Brett’s Cali Trip Part 1

Brett Rheeder showed up to Cali a few days ago, so we started his trip with a few solid step-up seshes.  We started talking and both wanted to work on 3ing drops, so we went for a little evening scout mission, stumbling across a sweet spot, and built it the next afternoon.  The run-in was a bit sketchy, with a steep sandstone ledge into some soft sand before the boards, but offered plenty of speed into the long soft landing.  We noticed a car nearby, and unsure, decided it would be a good idea to leave, cutting the session short.  Brett’s still here for a few more days so look for more to come!

Fogelsode S2 #8: Fun Week in Santa Cruz

It’s been an awesome week around here, with the sun shining and friends like Christian in town.  We took advantage of the weather and trail conditions to get in a fun day of riding big bikes.  Another day, Jeff and I had a cool little sesh at the step-up, before heading over to Post Office.  The classic sundown-seshes have become routine this time of year, but what’s new are some of the younger riders like Jared, Simon, and Fin shredding with us.  Just a week ago they were doing run-ups into the line and now they’re flowing through with style and even throwing a few tricks!  Stuff like that always gets me stoked to see!

Fogelsode S2 #7: Epic Ride Time

After watching too many Epic Meal Time videos on YouTube, Iggy and I decided to get creative when it came to making breakfast!  Leaving the house with satisfied stomachs, we met up with Allen Stoddard and Conner Kuhns out on the trails.  We had a good time on the evening trail ride, enjoying the great weather and trail conditions.  We even learned a few new lines that we’d never tried before.  Enjoy!

Fogelsode S2 #6: Good Ol’ Winter

The weather’s been amazing lately, with many warm sunny days and a few rainy ones here and there.  We got some solid rain one morning, which threw off the day’s plans, so I decided to go to the step-up instead and do a bit of filming.  I brought my slope bike out there and had a good time trying some tricks that I’d only done on my hardtail.  With the sun coming out the next day, many made their way over to Post Office to do some digging.  It was productive to say the least, and with a few more days of work, there should be a couple new lines running!

Fogelsode S2 #5: James’ Santa Cruz Trip

James Visser just made the trip up here from San Diego to ride and chill for a week.  Due to the steady rain, most spots were far from running, but with a little work we got in a nice session on Hone’s jumps early in the week.  The trails were running great despite a few puddles here and there, so we got some runs in out there as well.  However, we spent the most time at the step-up, as the sand soaks up most of the rain and it runs great this time of year.  Towards the end of the week we got a big sesh going out there, with Greg throwing down some big tricks like a bar to tailwhip and even a double flip!  James went for the double flip, and got close, but under rotated on one and landed right on his head.  Thankfully he was perfectly fine after a moment of shock, so everyone decided to call it after that.  It was a rad week of shredding, enjoy!

James did quite a bit of filming with his GoPro as well, so check out his view of the week in his latest video!
