Trevor’s Birthday

Yesterday at nemo we celebrated TG’s Birthday. For Mark Lewman‘s birthday TG decided to hire a Bret Michaels impressionist to serenade him. Mark Lewman vowed he would get him back. So he hired “a walk on the wild side” to bring in an 80lbs albino python. They hid it in the bathroom and told Trevor the pipes burst. He goes running down there to document the destruction. But he found more than water!


Mat Hoffman’s “The Birth of Big Air”

BOBA-Tribeca-invite

Get your asses down to the Tribeca Film Festival this Saturday to check out an inspiring and incredible documentary, “The Birth of Big Air.” It’s the story of BMX legend Mat Hoffman and his quest to take BMX further than anyone thought possible. It was produced by Dickhouse Entertainment’s Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze, along with Mark Lewman of Nemo.

Two hours before the screening, there are going to be demos and more…the screening is free and open to the public!

Saturday April 24

World Financial Plaza (West Street between Vesey and Liberty)

Event: 6:00pm. Screening: 8:00pm.


Kyle Bennet on the ground, completely jacked at the Beijing Olympics.

Bennet eventually gets up and rides the rest of the track with a separated shoulder. Under Olympic rules, if you receive first aid on the course you are not allowed to continue racing. But because Kyle rode under his own power and completed the course, he will be allowed to race in the finals and compete for a medal. Of course, racing with a separated shoulder put back in place is not the most comfortable thing to do.


FREESTYLIN’ launch party

I grabbed the Canon G9 and headed to Brooklyn Projects opening and launch of the Nemo produced book FREESTYLIN’. Nike SB’s, John Martin asked Nemo creative director Mark Lewman if he could do anything for BMX what would he do. Lewman brought the old band together from the Freestylin’ days and put together an amazing historical outline of the pioneering days of freestyle BMX. Spike Jones and Andy Jenkins collaborated in their original roles and put together the book.

BMX racing will debut in China at the Olympics next month and Nike SB has been doing promotions to bring focus to the new event. Michael Lau designed special limited edition Blazers for the promotion and if you were at the party in LA the he also design two special edition toys and a show box that is so unique and original!


NIKE 6.0 Lightning Bolts aka NEMO in China

In preparation for the Olympics in China, Nike 6.0 hosted the “Lightning Bolts” BMX Exhibition in Beijing. The event brought BMXing’s legends out to play. 6.0 riders put on a live demo and legends customized number plates for the art show. 

Nemo’s very own Mark Lewman, an OG of BMX’s Freestylin Magazine, was one of the brains behind the event. He has been hard at work creating an anniversary edition of Freestylin (that will have a very special limited release) and designing his very own number plate. YEAH Lew!
