If you’ve noticed What Eye Thought over the past few months, I have been showing a lot of shine to the Action sports realm, especially with Skateboarding and BMX. I have a deep love for BMX being a rider myself, so It is with great pleasure that I present the 1st ever EBA BMX Squad. Ryan Boccardi, Robbie Faussett, Mike Dunn, Austin Gerrity, Zack Springer and Zachary Gerber. Check out the roll call.
Hometown: Lancaster, CA
Disiciplines: Street, Dirt, Park
Ryan has been skating since age 7, and since I met him has been absolutely fearless. This kid will jump off of anything. His hunger alone will certainly push him to wherever his dreams reside.
Hometown: Lancaster, CA
Disciplines: Street, Dirt, Park
Robbie rides his bike with such an agreesive spirit, but his style is so clean and effortless you would think that he’s on the bike 24/7. He has a quiet demeanor, but when he hopped on his bike his skills did all of the talking. Mos definitely a name to watch.
Hometown: Lake Los Angeles, CA
Disciplines: Street, Park
I told Mike that he was born to be a action sports star, just based on his cool ass name. He was another one who had a clean, effortless style, and looked cool doing his shit, even when he was just posted up for a photo op.
Hometown: Hesperia, CA
Disciplines: Street, Park, Dirt
Out of all of the kids that I met at the skatepark, Austins quiet, driven demeanor was what stood out to me the most. When my PNC Jackie asked him about his riding experiences and goals, he responded with “This is all I want to do for the rest of my life.” I told him that if he keeps that drive and focus, the sky’s the limit. Why couldn’t I be this focused at 15?
Hometown: Ridgway, PA
Disciplines: Street, Park, Vert
Zach is a beast simple and plain, you can go on his vimeo page and be floored by what your watching. He lets his talent speak for himself, but he can be summed up in one quote from his Vital BMX profile “haven’t got a whole lot to say. I ride, I chill with my lady, work and go to college. All within the hills of Pennsylvania. Life’s straight forward and simply.”
Hometown: Palmdale, CA
Disciplines: Street, Dirt & Park
Richie Rich gets air, its as simple as that. Supermans, backflips, seriously dialed turn downs, you name it. He’s currently transitioning back and forth between Palmdale and Riverside, but he always seems to have time to shred. Keep your eye out for this kid, he’s already competing and has no intentions of stopping, grind hard or go home.
