I’ve been waiting for this podcast with Chase Gouin for a while, Kip Williamson and Chip Riggs catch up with the one and only, Chase Gouin. Here’s what the Space Brothers crew had to say, sit down and grab a cuppa and enjoy this episode!
“This time around we sat down with flatland legend Chase Gouin to discuss his early life and getting into BMX, the first time he pulled a decade, meeting Kevin Jones and the Plywood Hoods, moving to York PA, his first Dorkin In York video section, special sessions he had with Kevin Jones, pulling his first quad decade, being the first flatland rider to ever ride brakeless, becoming ambidextrous with certain tricks so he could learn new positions, dealing with severe tendinitis, overcoming near-death situations more than a handful of times, and what he thinks about the current state of modern flatland. So get comfortable, crank up your speakers, and check out this special interview with the legend himself… Chase Gouin.”
Under the watchful eye of Martti Kuoppa and his MK Format coaching programme, Varo Hernandez out of Madrid, Spain has made big strides in his riding. Check out this instagram compilation he put together.

Every year Pete Brandt and the SF Clocktower locals throw down a jam to celebrate day light savings, TCU were in town to document what went down last weekend. Pete Brandt gets two clips at the start of the edit from the 00:14 mark, and I was stoked to see the relatively unknown Clocktower street shredder, Jacob get a line in this at the 1:14 mark. Good vibes from the Clocktower, this brought memories flooding back from my time there in January.
