JORDAN ALEPPO: The Bastard of the Abyss

Jordan Aleppo set off on a journey around the globe last year.

This trip wasn’t just a BMX trip, it was also an emotional escape, a personal reward, an eye-opening opportunity, a chance to reflect on the past and look to the future with a new perspective.

We love Jordan and we’re stoked to see him put this all together in video form. When he talks about his childhood, it’s pretty heavy. Stories of family abuse from his Dad, things like that. It’s incredibly brave of Jordan to put all this out there, but he’s done it all on his own terms and we can only respect him for it.

Get comfy for this one and let Jordan tell you his story…


More info:

“As some of you may know that I’ve recently took a trip around the world, although one of the reasons why I went on this trip was to finally make time to ride my bike. The main reason was to get away from my reality.

After spending 8 months travelling around the world on my own where people can barely speak the same language, really open my eyes and allowed me to see things from a different perspective.

I’ve spent my whole childhood listening to counsellors telling me where I’m going to end up. However something as little as riding a BMX bike gave me the opportunity to change the path that was paved for me.

The things I mentioned in this video may be only be a sliver of my childhood,
I’ve always hidden my past, my name, my upbringing, the things I’ve done and the things I’ve seen.
But now, I more than welcome the name that was once given to me.
The Bastard Of The Abyss.
