Red Bull – Bruno Hoffmann in Tel Aviv, Israel Teaser

It looks like Red Bull is on the verge of releasing a new Bruno Hoffmann video from his recent trip to Tel Aviv, Israel with filmmaker, Richard Forne! Take a peek at this quick teaser and then prepare yourself for a banger of a video February 27th!

When Bruno Hoffmann went to Israel in 2012 he couldn’t travel outside Tel Aviv because of the poitical conditions, but the beautiful weather, good food and endless spots brought the German back in late 2013 to film a new video with his favourite filmer Richard Forne. The trailer shows a few street spots that they found in the white city and its surrounding suburbs.

The Gaza Strip isn’t the safest place on the planet to go street riding but Bruno avoided the armed security guards and hit up as many street spots as possible on this trip. Bruno: “I never really felt scared and I wasn’t concerned. Having Rich, who lives there quite a lot, with me, was really helping.”

The final product will be released on February 27th. With Rich Forne’s filming and editing combined with the skilled and technical riding of Bruno Hoffmann it’s going to be one that you don’t want to miss.

We’ve seen a bunch of awesome photos from up and coming photographers from the East Coast over the years and it looks like the supply of talent isn’t running short. The other day we got a sample of photos from 17 year old, Alex Luciano, that we were really stoked on! We decided there was no way we could pass up what he had sent through, so we pieced together a brand new photogallery with 15 of his photos for you to check out featuring the likes of Mark Burnett, Isaac Stani, Steve Condit, Luke Fawcett, Kevin Rojas, Brandon Perez, Justin Ramirez, Jon Woods, Dean Watson, Joey Grosz, Dan Hatch, Trystin Gunraj and more!
