BMX Every Day | #UKBMX




I think you’ll all agree with this one… You can’t beat a good ol’ hop whip. This used to be a trick which seemed near enough impossible when I first started riding, now everyone seems to be able to do them! Undoubtedly a timeless trick which will always raise an eyebrow or two when one gets banged out at the end of a line or just at random, they’re always good for a good photo op with a good backdrop too. Either way, we asked you guys to send us your best whopper pics, spoke to a couple pro riders and put together a few quality whoppers for your enjoyment…


Archie Kenward.

Archie Kenward popped this whopper for photographer Theo Dorman. Lighting & timing is on point!


Richard Coe.

At first I thought, “well they’ve bloody cut his 3/4 of his body out of the shot!” – Then I scrolled down… Nice use of a random puddle for this shot of Richard Coe here.


Corey Lively-Hammonds.

This one is a still taken from a video, but what the hell… Corey Lively-Hammonds popped this whopper off the stairs into the bank and I liked it.


Adam Laskey.

You may remember this picture from our NICESETUP feature a couple of months back. I couldn’t resist the repost though. Quality shot of Adam Laskey whipping in front of Deadpool!


Connor Worthington.

Connor Worthington fired this one over for me via the RideUKBMX group and it’s a good a whopper as any. Keep an eye out in future for Connor’s INSTA LIFE feature. Coming soon…


Kane Hennessy.

Kane Hennessy with a whip in the dark at his local. The lighting and shadows are pretty sweet in this one! Love it.


Charlie Lower.

I hit up the homie Jordan Aleppo for a hop whip picture since I know he’s quite partial to one and he had a couple of recent snaps from Insta he was happy to share, I picked my favourite and here it is!

Tyler MacEachern.

Hahaha there’s always one isn’t there? I asked for some hop whip pictures and within minutes Tyler MacEachern knocked together this photoshop and posted it in the comments. Not gonna lie, it did make me laugh.


Dom Mahoney.

A late but great entry from Dom O’mahoney sent over just in the nick of time before I stopped taking entries. Good height on that baby… Nice!

James Hayes.

James Hayes aka ‘Bear’ is an absolute beast at hop whips, this one in particular is a hop 180 downwhip captured by Scott Godwin.

Josh Roberts.

You gotta love this shot of Josh Roberts busting out a mean hop whip! Captured and sent over by the very talented resident DUB filmer/photographer – James Alcock.
