Sochifornia Dreaming

Jul 052016

We caught up with two of the most progressive Russian street riders the Bespaliy brothers on their recent edit tearing it up all over Sochi!

I would’t say that Sochi is rich with spots, but some of them are so beautiful and unusual, that they can blow your mind.

Hi brothers what's up? What’s so special about Sochi city? Why have you decided to shoot over there?

Igor: Sochi is kinda Russian California. It’s cool to ride between palm trees near the sea, especially when you live in Moscow. I would’t say that Sochi is rich with spots, but some of them are so beautiful and unusual, that they can blow your mind. Like the Or-johny-kidze resort!
Max: Sochi is an extremely beautiful city on coast of the Black Sea, with palm trees everywhere and amazing views, so we thought it would be nice to go there and shoot in the middle of all these nice things. Also, the Winter Olympics were held there in 2014.

How does it feel to go on this kind of trip right at the beginning of the season? How long did the shooting take?

Igor: After a cold winter in Moscow it was awesome to take an instant flight to summer. To start the season 2016 – it was the best warm up: we’ve been riding and shooting for about 6 days, and it was kinda tricky after 4 months of winter riding 1/2 times per week haha :) 
Max: It’s always great to travel into summer! It was hard to ride 6 days non-stop, because in winter we ride like 1 or two times per week. But we did our best to cover as many nice places as possible during this time .

What was the initial aim and have you found what you’ve been looking for?

Max: We’ve been looking for new emotions from riding in new places. Amazing team, lots of sun and riding! What else does one need from riding? We’ve made the best trip, and you definitely should come to Sochi as well! Mad props to Monster for making this possible! Thanks to XSA Media and GoPro Russia for shooting! Enjoy watching and stay tuned for new videos!
