This all started when we got a call from America’s Got Talent after they saw our video of Daniel jumping off a cliff on fire. We only had 2 months to come up with an idea and film it before the audition tape was due. We have never put so much effort and time into one video before. Since a team of amazing people came together, we managed to pull it off and send in the audition tape only a few hours before the deadline. We ended up not making it on America’s Got Talent 2014. It seems they thought our video was too complex and dangerous to perform on an indoor stage (we still believe differently of course!). But there is always next year!
Thanks to everyone who helped out with every aspect of our fire stunt! We are especially thankful to the McMullen Family who helped us out tremendously!

Not many people gets a chance to feel what it’s like to be on fire in a controlled environment. After several attempts to do a stunt on fire that was worthy of a video, we only had enough fire retardant gel for more one stunt. Luckily Daniel managed to pull this off on the first attempt. It’s probably the most intense thing we have ever done and now it’s time to start searching for the next challenge.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with any aspect of our fire stunts. We are especially thankful to Gabe and all his friends who are featured in the BTS video here:

The JoyRiders crew decided to do it all in one day. That’s right, surfing at the beach in San Diego, snowboarding in the mountains at Big Bear Mountain and riding dune buggies in the desert at Superstition Mountain. And if that wasn’t enough they finished it off with some skateboarding at night back in San Diego. The whole day was documented so they could share their story of one of the most amazing days of their lives.
Our music is as usual created by Jimmy Lick and Neil Solomon but also we would like to give thanks to the website http://freemusicarchive.org/
Here are the song we used appearing in this order:
“Surf Party Apocalypse” by Paint Fumes
“Escape” by Break the Bans
“25” by Break the Bans
Ever wonder how to get free tacos at Taco Bell?
While we are getting food at the drive through, a “giant gorilla” comes out from the woods, grabs the food and trashes it, which scares the employees and even the manager. Luckily the employees and manager at Taco Bell are super awesome and replaced the order for us. After convincing the manager that two tacos of the tacos were still good we got 5 tacos for the price of 3. It was a good day.
This is what you get when you have 14 dudes and $500 worth of fireworks.
Fireworks used: roman candles, mortars, saturn missiles, barrage fire candle
The JoyRiders Fireworks Battle is meant to be a game of dodgeball with roman candles. After the motor explodes the battle begins with both teams, red and blue, scrambling towards the center to to grab their fireworks and then rushing back to their sides to light the fireworks. There are two tiki torches on each team’s side which are used to light the fireworks and also mark the out of bounds areas. After 8 mins of intense explosions, tons of smoke and lots of loud noises, it was hard to say who won. The red team had less burns and blue team had more burns. Blue team says they won because they were counting points by the number of burns they had on their skin. Let us know who you think won!
