“PRIMAL FEAR” WINS CHIP & MVP AT PRO CITY!

k1x warrior darren “primal fear” phillip is the best big man in new york, period. on thursday night, dp underlined that fact and led his team to the fourth pro city victory in five years (!) – scoring 28 points and grabbing 17 boards in the process. some say defense wins championships. we say, champions win championships. so that’s what hustle, heart, fundamentals, force and smarts add up to: wins and a stack of mvp trophies. darren phillip, who won the tri-state award for most valuable player last year, personifies the results of work ethic like no other.
congraulations darren, we’re very proud of you!

L-LOVE – REMEMBER THAT NAME!

13 year old hoop phenomenon jerron love recently made his debut at “together we chill” up in harlem. a 13 year old! versus grown ass men! j-love was guarded by the “the zen master”, first reluctantly, then closely. jerron’s team, that also featured darren “primal fear” phillip and the glover brothers, was up by a dozen or so when “black diamond” caught this lob from the youngster in the final seconds of the game. he only played a couple of minutes in total and failed to score a point, but raked in 3 assists and displayed lebron-like swag. something tells us we’ll be hearing more of jerron love in the future …
thanks to bounce mag’s 40cal for the footage!

big block board-short product test 2009

right before the holiday season we could get our shorts tested by our friend, windsurfing pro josh angulo (sails number CV-1). yes he is a wave rider, but he’s a big fella so he can do the slalom too. check the video and see 10 guys with 100kg each, on the edge of being out of control with at least 40 mph racing in a “no rules” slalom competition (the guy with the pink sail sui 11 is bjorn Dunkerbeck, the holder of 35 world titels by the way).

YouTube Preview Image

Josh came in second in this race, but won one series too (in our k1x big block shorts). earlier that day he got into a little dispute with the authorities (see second image), which got him a 1000,- usd fine. keep doing your thing josh!

HARLEM FUNK

“together we chill” tournament on 119th street has been kicking up a lot of dust this summer – thanks to the hustle of commissioners dj Tedsmooth, g-bush and big tato. currently considered one of the hottest spots in the city, it’s no wonder new york’s top dogs are turning up in bunches. yesterday’s talent featured darren “luxury tax aka primal fear” philipp, “black diamond”, “stixx”, “the zen master”, “t-mac”, the glover bros. and a 13 year old ballhandling prodigy, who suited up and hyped to 300+ crowd with three funky assists, including a last second alley to the games most electrifying player, black diamond. darren philipp took home the “w” while he displayed his full skill set of fundamentals. stixx had a 40+ game in losing effort.
thanks to kevin couliau of asphalt chronicles for the great images!
