MotoX Rider Impales Face with Branch

Impaled MotoX.jpg

We haven't shown MotoX love on T.E.S. in a while. Well, here you go. Here's a guy who had a piece of a tree or branch or whatever the f*ck it is impaled in his face. Literally. Warning, the video is pretty graphic. And kind of awesome, if you're into this sort of thing.

ASR 2010 Recap

Having been involved in the action sports industry for the better part of a decade, I have somehow managed to not once attend the industry’s largest trade show, ASR (Action Sports Retailer). With an exciting new business venture about to get underway, the time was now to attend what was once an action sports retailer expo and is now an action sports extravaganza of epic proportions.

X Games Flasher Steals the Show. Wait, the X Games Were On?

Seriously, does anyone watch the X Games anymore? The event’s been in HelLA ten years too long, yet the idiots who run this campaign think that holding the event in SoCal year after year is the way to go. Never mind that the X Games generated massive publicity when they changed cities every two years. To top things off the organizers fail to take advantage of a key SoCal advantage: Surf. They haven’t had a surf contest for a few years now. Combined with a lack of dramatics and heavy corporate influence, either we’re getting too old for this sh!t or the X Games need a major makeover. The one highlight came from the stands, when a betty decided to flash her fellow X Games spectators. One particular boy was very pleased by the spectacle.

Update: The Phuggest Two Weeks in Action Sports

X Games US Open Suck.jpg

The madness is over! Yey! Seriously, has there ever been a more boring version of the Disney X Games? It’s just a stale, stagnant version of its old self. Two things are direly needed: A change in venue (and by “venue” we mean a whole new location, enough of L.A. already), and less events. Amazingly enough, a massive south swell coupled with the arrival of the world’s best surfers resulted in the U.S. Open of Surfing coming through. Highly doubt that’ll happen again. Congrats to Brett Simpson for winning at his home break of Huntington. Listed below are the complete results from the latest clusterf*ck edition of the Disney X Games, plus video highlights of Kelly Slater’s Perfect 10 at the U.S. Open of Surfing.

The folks over at Disney have just released their invited athlete list for the Summer X Games.  Of note is a new skateboard big air rail jam event, the ladies are now invited in motox, and uber-nerd Travis Pastrana might return to compete in motox.  Does anyone over 18 who isn't in the industry care about this shit anymore?

Metal Mulisha Put on a Show for the Marines

Some would say that the only blemish on the California Coast south of LA is the overabundance of military bases and installations, creating a weird mix of surf culture and army brats who rarely mix.  Enter the Metal Mulisha, who decided to show support for local Marine Corps troops by putting on a show at Camp Pendleton near Oceanside, Calif.

A Frenchy Pulls the First Real MotoX Frontflip

Charles Pagès, half of the Pagès Brothers MotoX team, succeeded where Jim DeChamp failed.  Unlike DeChamp, who used a specially modified Suzuki RM125 to land the first-ever frontflip at last summer's Disney X Games, Pagès used a standard RM250 to pull off the first truly successful frontflip.  And thanks to the folks over at Disney's action sports site, there is video evidence to prove it.
