Barcelona trip 2018 edit

The lads Donnacha Carroll, Derek Johnson and Jake Ryan getting away for a break to Barcelona just before the winter creeps in for Ireland.
With our good mate Ryan living in Barcelona for the past year or so we were excited to go and visit him but unfortunately he broke his foot so bad he flew home for surgery a week before we left. Within that same 24hr period that Ryan smashed himself, Jake now took a serious spill which looked like he might have to sit the trip out too. Some physio and TLC for 2 weeks had Jake mended so we headed off for a few days in the sun. Nearly didn't make it but it wouldn't be a trip without some drama!

Filmed by all 3 of us and edited by Donnacha

Ru and Kuba // NYC 2018

Ruairi O’Callaghan & Kuba Wiland split edit filmed mostly in New York but extending out to Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
We met randomly at my local skatepark, became friends and began filming together almost instantly. The whole video was filmed entirely on a GoPro with an iPad for second angles and edited in the ever-faithful iMovie. This video is more of a memoir of our time together in the states than a high quality BMX showcase but I’m pretty stoked with how it turned out overall.
Big ups to Ave BMX in Poland and my beloved Boardroom for keeping us rolling while we were abroad, would’ve been a hell of a lot harder to get this done without them.
Also want to give a major shoutout to our American crew and friends for taking the two weird Europeans in and showing us an amazing summer of BMX riding and culture, you know who you are. - Ru

Jake Ryan Boardroom edit

 Jake Ryan has been a part of the Boardroom family from the very start, its been a great honour to have watched him grow from the little kid out shredding his age group at the park into the face mangling street assassin he embodies these days.

This video laced together by Eoin 'Manbear' Shiel has some of Jake's best riding from the last 2/3 years. Cans..Cans...Cans!

Here's what Eoin had to say on experience of riding and filming Jake

"Jake Ryan is a disaster. From rolling around in broken glass topless at my wedding, to concussing himself on the first trick of some sessions, we've been provided with many a "moment"... With that said, Jake is one of my favourite people to travel with. More often than not, a session will end in a few beers and shite-talk that covers more ground than the session itself. No matter how many cosmetic changes he's made to his forehead, he's always solid... Just... a disaster."

Dig Locals - Chris O'Neill 2018

Michael and Chris worked hard on this edit and we were very pleased when Dig agreed to pick it up and run it as a 'Dig Locals' segment. Filmed and edited by Michael Haran with some extra filming from Dillon Haran. Super happy with how this has gone and finally Chris's edit gets seen by anyone looking at Dig.

Straight from Dig:

The latest in our DIG LOCALS video series comes from our original home country of Ireland and features Chris O’Neill - yet another up and coming shredder who is flying well below the radar outside of his own scene. Here’s what the filmer Michael Haran, and Derek Johnson, had to say about him.


“It’s been awesome having Chris added to our shop team and we always knew he had some special talent since his riding stood out amongst the rest. He's the nicest kid and very humble with a pro-active outlook to what is possible, His riding alone is pretty much miraculous since he lives in the middle of Ireland, nowhere near any majors scenes that have existed. Check this out with the knowledge that he's pushed himself so hard for the last year along with Michael working hard behind the camera.” - Derek Johnson


"Chris O'Neill has been added to The Boardroom Team since the end of 2016 and from seeing what he could do via his instagram feed, and at local jams etc, I knew that he would definitely be able to film a seriously wild part. Shortly after this I hit him up and he was down to put in some work. He's a very laid back guy that can come across as quite shy but that's put behind him when he gets on a bike. He has spent countless hours going back and forth with me trying to nail some of the hugely technical lines along with the wild clips he's managed to pull off. He has gone beyond what I thought was possible and I'm so stoked to finally show everyone what we have been working on over the last 12 months." - Michael Haran
