Thanks to Mr. Do and Samuel Arechiga we can feel like we never have to leave the NAHBPC mindset. We can sit in front of our computers and pretend like we are still surround by 10,000 lakes and take end the bike polo footage as it continues to roll in.
It started with Mr. Do’s GIF of Koyo snipping that youngster, and was followed by this hilarious GIF of Ace getting hit in his face by his own teammate. Mr. Do didn’t stop there either; as of right now he already has three full game videos online. Not sure why he chose the games he did but they are there and they are a blast to watch! Here are the three videos up so far, and be sure to check Mr. Do’s VIMEO for more action soon!
As mentioned above, Mr. Do isn’t the only one releasing some great NAHBPC footage. Samuel Arechiga from the SOON Media Group put together this fun highlight reel of some of the games from Saturday’s Swiss Rounds. This video is only two minutes long so be sure to give it a few watches so Samuel can see that we appreciate him putting this together!
A bit of important information for videographers out there, it’s never to late to post polo footage. Here it is almost a year and half later and a fun highlight video from the 2012 Presidents Day Polo Socialjust now surfaced. It’s always great to have a chance to watch a video of yourself, no matter how embarrassing you find your performance. Keep it up bike polo videographers, you’re doing a great service for the sport!
The Presidents Day Polo Social was held in San Antonio, Texas on February 18 and 19. This tournament brought together some of the best teams from the South Central region and beyond, to enjoy the mild February weather. Imagine if more parts of the country had beautiful weather like this in February?

For some of you this video may be old news, but this past weekend I was sent a highlight video of the 2012 South American Championships that was brand new to me. Uploaded eight months ago to Vimeo, this video shows some of the passion, love, and hard work that our South American family puts into polo.
The 2013 South American Championship is being help on September 20 – 22 in São Paulo, Brasil. Here’s to hoping that teams make it to worlds this year in Florida.
Footage of the 2013 European Championship final surfaced today. In it you can see Call Me Daddy (Greg, William PARIS, Paul TOU) play Edisons (Piks GVA, David FRA, Eddy MUN) for the crown. The video is a little hard to watch due to the camera facing the sun and the videographer’s inability to zoom, but listening to Europeans chant makes you not want to stop watching.
Quick discussion point, is the hit at 11:16 clean or dirty?
Thanks to Adam Hite, the man with the best Southern drawl in bike polo, footage from the final two games at the Southeast regional qualifier is now up for your viewing pleasure. Albeit a tad shaky, the video highlights the talent that is boiling up in America’s South. We posted the results last week, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out the action. All sports learn about their competition through game footage, so here’s your chance to spy on some great teams headed to the North American Championship.
