Our GC brethren and videographer, Jonas Hansson spent a few weeks in Cali, filming GC Pro and blading legend, Dre Powell. Jonas produced our Ground Control Barcelona tour edit earlier this year and we couldn’t be more stoked to work with him again. This time, he travelled state-side and who better for him to team up with then our Team Captain, Dre Powell! We present to you to Dre Powell’s official GC Pro debut edit filmed by film god Jonas Hansson.
Brian Weis has been shredding for a cold minute up in Detroit, Michigan. He’s been steadily mastering his skill and technique with long-time shredder, Pro and local: Don Bambrick.
Trick-WEIS, Brian’s got to many to count and his style has matured oh so nicely. Not to mention and well as you can see he’s got hammers too. We are stoked to present to you all the newest AM to the Ground Control team. Let er’ rip.
The Ground Control team spent 7 days in Barcelona earlier this year. We initially planned to only shoot one production while there but as our rider count grew to 10+ people we quickly realized that was far too many people to get shit done in a place like Barcelona of all places.
Therefore, we decided to shoot two productions instead of just one. Each morning, we split the riders into two groups and they each went out to shoot with two different film groups. It was quite the task but was pretty rad at the same time.
Two different styles of filmers and always a different group of bladers to shred with and vibe off of was a cool experience for sure. The next day we alternated the groups. As many of you know or have seen, Jonas Hansson blessed us with his visionary talents for the first edit. We could not be more stoked on how it turned out.
Who would have thought that the footage was only from 3-4 days of each rider? Although it was hectic at times, we made it happen and the TEAM came through! Shredding during the day (all 7 days that is) and living the Barcelona life at night. Great times were had and a big thanks to the GC crew and all that helped us along our week adventure.

Jarrod Banning ended up taking 2nd place so it was a good competition for the Ground Control team… After a long night of partying (more than usual), we managed to spend the last 2 days shredding the streets of ATL. Here’s what went down.
