Phoenix is a magical place that I end up finding myself stuck in for a couple weeks a year. The people are down for anything fun or destructive, the spots are plentiful, the girls are weird, and if it’s hot, you just go sneak into a hotel pool. The riding scene there is diverse; little cliques of riders all have names for their groups of friends and yet there’s no qualms about getting together and seemingly no beef over random BMXness. The scene is tight and now Bobby Kanode has finally released Mediocre At Best that, despite the name, really does the scene proper justice. A great feel—one that can come from a labor of love—and tons of amazing riding ranging in all types, just as you’d expect from a scene born and bred on The Gonz and Ratboy.
