Sam somehow found this concrete bowl hidden in a wood and took the time to dig it out. When we say time, we mean hours and hours, on his own. Thats dedication.
"Sam Chamberlain first popped up on my radar last year when he dropped a hammer of a video part containing a bunch of clips filmed at many of my old local spots in the suburbs of leafy Surrey. Being pretty chuffed to see the BMX scene back home alive and thriving, I did some digging and eventually got to know Sam through a few friends back home. In an age where most riders are wanting to upload their best clips onto "the gram" before they’ve even pulled the rollback, Sam understands the importance of hard work, patience and perfection.
Taking the time to create something that not only looks good but a project that he’s proud of; Sam’s attitude towards riding and BMX in general aligned perfectly with us as a brand so it only made sense to bring him into the Éclat family. A solid trick/spot selection and an eye for creativity, Sam’s riding is technical, but well balanced, never doing anything more than the spot or the clip needed. Spending the past 6 months working on his first éclat project, Sam dug deep (quite literally) and came away with another video which will make you want to get off the couch and go ride your bike no matter the weather." - Dave Paterson/Éclat
