Evan Daniel Vlog and BMX Webisode Equipment Check


Evan not only kills it on a BMX, he is also official filmer for DDASC. BMX Groms checked in with Evan to see what equipment he uses for his webisodes and to get some tips.

Evan uses a GoPro Hero 5, as well as a GoPro Hero 5 Session for POV clips.

Evan Daniel Vlog and BMX Webisode Equipment Check GoPro

Here is what else Evan has to say about his equipment and vlogging.

When I’m talking to the camera, I use a Joby Gorilla action tripod and a metal housing with some DIY wind killers also called “dead cats” to make up the picture and sound that is in the webisodes.

If I want to take cinematic shots on the GoPro, I choose to use the Hero 5 with the Karma Grip to get good looking steady shots.

When I use the Hero 5 Session to get a POV shot I mount it onto my helmet, so i can ride more comfortably.

The Lowepro case holds everything I need for my cameras and the mounts needed for them.

I choose to vlog with this setup because it is the easiest thing to use and film with, plus I’m sponsered by GoPro.

Evan’s latest Webisode is below: Webisode 24: Riding with Josh Perry.

Favourite place to ride? I love to ride at Kugenuma skatepark and BASHIBURGERCHANCE.

Which tricks do you want to learn next? Truck Drivers and Tailwhips.

How often do you practise riding? Everyday. But there is no park near my house. So I often practice bmx in front of my house except on Saturdays and Sundays.

Best BMX memory? When I got the first prize at a BMX contest the first time.

Why did you choose that frame? I started riding BMX when I was 4 years old. The Cult Juvi 12 inch is very light weight and can be ridden for park, street, dirt and everywhere. Also the Cult Juvi 12″ is gyro ready. So I can do barspins now ;)

BMX progression with Nathan Lanky Philps

BMX Pro Nathan Lanky Philps

BMX Coach and Pro Nathan Lanky Philps

Hey everyone, Lanky here! I’ve been asked the question, “How do you keep progressing?” quite a few times and with my 30th birthday coming up soon, I’d say that’s a fairly relevant question. So here’s my top tips on how to keep progressing no matter what level you are!

BMX Tip ONE

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Progression is not found in your safety tricks. That barspin or tuck no hander you’ve done a million times is not going to help you any further than it already has. The key is to finding something you can do and then send it over something brand new. Example, you can barspin fly out, time to do it over a spine!


BMX Progression Tip 2

Find a goal.

You can’t progress if you don’t know where you’re going. Think about what tricks you want to learn, write them down and then get out there and practice them until you can do them, then write a new trick.

BMX Progression Tip 3

Ride with riders better than you.

Nothing pushes you to progress more than riding with guys better than you. If you get into a good session with 3 or 4 insane riders, their enthusiasm will rub off on you and you’ll find yourself sending things you never expected you could!

BMX Progression Tip 4

There is no such things as limits.

This is freestyle. What was once considered impossible is now regularly being rewritten. Once upon a time, backflips were considered untouchable! Now we have double flairs. The only limitations on this sport are the ones you place on yourself. Consider EVERYTHING as a possibility and eventually, you’ll land things that have never been done.

BMX Progression Tip 5

Always have fun.

If you’re not having fun, you shouldn’t even be riding in my opinion. What’s the point of doing something you hate? Remember that no matter what is going on, what tricks your trying and the frustration that comes with it, you should be enjoying the challenge even if you’re hating the trick. So never forget the reason why you started riding in the first place.

So these are my 5 tips on how after 15 years of riding I still manage to learn brand new tricks every single month. They mightn’t be groundbreaking, but to me, they’re an achievement always worth chasing.
