This is Van Homan’s latest edit and it’s pretty ridiculous to say the least! The story behind it is pretty simple – Van recently flew out to ride the ‘Asian X-Games’. As usual, Van makes time to ride some pretty ridiculous street and the meanest of concrete skateparks. One of the highlights is a guest apperance by Coco Zurita, who busts some incredible lines at the SMP skatepark. The videos also contains cultural insight into an awesome adventure – Not to mention some of the harshest slams! The mission is documented by Stew Johnson. Enjoy!

“When I call I either get “Hi this is Coco and I’m prolly buzy right now”, or I get a “hola cheeky dogg” from one of the most genuine people I’ve ever known. Coco arrived on the scene in 2004, after a long time friend had moved from their hometown in Chile to Dallas, Texas. I received a call from a dirt jumper named Sean Tarrant letting me know he had found someone with something special.
The GT Air Show was the mid summer tour, so we re-routed through Texas and swooped up Coco. Along side Cameron White, Coco rapidly took his riding to the next level. It was such a rad experience; watching this kid from Chile, become one of the absolute very best in the world. With a fluid riding style and powerhouse tricks, Coco has quickly changed how people look at BMX vert riding. In four years of Summer tour, if my math is correct, that is a few hundred BMX shows, a few speeding tickets, too many late night drives, A LOT of java chips, spending almost every waking moment with this kid from Chile and I can only remember being mad at him twice. Once for rushing me and another time he didn’t want to drive haha.
Thank you Pedro. You’re an amazing friend and an all around awesome cheeky dogg! I’m excited to watch what you do in BMX in the future!” – Bo Wade
