Test Pressing is a new project from CAPiTAs Birdman, Brandon Cocard, and filmer Sam Tuor. It’s a four-part web series to be filmed and released throughout the winter and compiled into a video and EP later in the year. The video is accompanied by a brand-new track, written and performed by Cocard and Co., that was created during the filming of the edit.
“Cocard comes in hot with his signature technical flair and easy going style”
Episode 1 was filmed throughout January in Salt Lake City, Utah and mixes the golden formula of fast paced urban riding and hefty backcountry powder shredding. Cocard comes in hot with his signature technical flair and easy going style, showing his prowess as one of the most diverse and respected riders of our generation. From urban destroying to backcountry booters, Cocard can do it all, and he can do it better than most.
Young gun Miles Fallon demonstrates why he’s one of the most exciting riders on the planet with his dynamic riding and endless creativity. We’re reminded of a young Scott Stevens with his deep bag of one footers and punchy style.
