In “Lake Medina” (15 February), which featured the crew doing crazy dangerous water jumps at Pastrana’s lake house in Texas, she competed with Pastrana to see who could hold onto the legs of a whirling helicopter over a lake the longest. He flipped his bike several times into the air, opened the chute too late, and landed hard on the canyon floor. Everyone rushed to the cliff’s edge, fearing the worst.
In the most impressive episode to date, "Las Vegas" (22 February), Pastrana did the Grand Canyon. Pastrana emerged with only road rash, cactus sticks, and a blown out knee, announcing, “Not to be a complete moron, but as bad as it went, it couldn’t have gone any better for that situation.”The most telling part of the episode was a closing credit line: “In loving memory” of Jeremy Lusk, a young rider who died performing a hazardous trick in competition.
JVV: Travis [Pastrana] taught me to backflip at his house in MD [Maryland, United States] and the rest is history. It was just all about heading down a road not travelled and we had a blast and still do.
CP: How did it come about that you joined Nitro Circus? We weren't sure what to expect from ourselves and from the show and from the fans.

My beloved superhero comic books, source of excitement and wonder and inspiration since I was a boy, might just offer the same for my daughter.
Brought to you by producer Johnny Knoxville, this child of Jackass is yet another show about male bonding via masochistic pranks. As these guys (and one gal) fling themselves into the Grand Canyon on motorcycles or base-jump from the roof of the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, their stunts are bigger because their skills are. Head honcho Travis Pastrana, one of the most decorated motorcyclists and action sports stars in the world, has no fear.
After all, he was the first (and so far only) person to land a double back flip on his motorcycle in competition (X Games Freestyle Motocross, 2006). In the series’ first episode (“Welcome to Pastranaland,” i.e., his Annapolis compound and his altered state of reality), he somersaulted out of an airplane without a parachute, swimming through air and mugging for the camera while his buddies with chutes scrambled to catch him.
"Bower" encapsulates all that is right with Inner Wave's distinct sound: slashing guitar chords and booming drums that call to mind the best of post-punk, Latin rhythms that summon the spirit of Tropicália and a playfulness informed by the true joy of hip-hop.
Culled from the band's 2017 LP , the tune is named after vocalist/guitarist Pablo Sotelo's canine companion, Bowie (nicknamed Bower).
