Ken Block’s Gymkhana 5: Ultimate Urban Playground – San Francisco

Category: Sport

Well folks, Ken Block and DC Shoe Co. are back with another Gymkhana video. This time they hit San Francisco as the ultimate urban playground. Par usual, shit is gnarly. Check it:

Oops! Lost a GoPro @ 3:37…

As rad as this video is, I can’t help but wonder how much dough it takes to close down that much of San Francisco to shoot these scenes. Obviously, money ain’t no thang though… Once again, if you’ve got the cash, you can make it happen. Dope shit.

More info: Shot on the actual streets of San Francisco, California, GYM5 features a focus on fast, raw and precise driving action. Filmed over four days, director Ben Conrad and his team are back to work on their second Gymkhana production and delivered the entire city of San Francisco as Ken Block’s personal gymkhana playground. DC Shoes also provided fellow DC athlete and longtime Ken Block friend, Travis Pastrana, to make a cameo appearance on his dirtbike, and S.F. resident Jake Phelps of Thrasher Magazine fame also makes a cameo as Block hoons S.F. in his most incredible Gymkhana yet.
