Super Slow Mo BMX Riding with Kyle Baldock

By | BMX, Video | No Comments

We are huge fans of great video production, mix that in with some insane riding and a $250,000 camera and you get this.

Filmed at 1000fps with the Phantom Flex camera in Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, Australia, this shoot combines one of the world’s best BMX riders, Kyle Baldock, throwing down a handful of incredible next level tricks to give an all new perspective of BMX.

Kyle Baldock

The epic rise of action sports is documented alongside a painfully personal tale of human tragedy and triumph in ‘The Art of Progress’, a free film released by Unit.

Following his dreams of being the best in BMX, Kyle has won multiple Dew Tour events and is regarded as one of the biggest threats to take home a gold medal at the X Games in Los Angeles next week.

A while back, Stay Strong’s Anthony Watkinson, Brandon Kitson and Adam Aloise were all in Austin.

I hooked up for a session with Watkinson at the infamous House Park and Nick Steben was kind enough to shoot over a few clips of Adam and Brandon, some additional clips provided by Adam too.

Also featuring a quick clip of Matt Priest.
