I am so late to the party on this one, the title is somewhat ironic to me although I realise it’s a reference to Vans. Matthias Dandois is in the public eye every day, social media posts, public appearances, travelling, the list goes on and on. I often say to Matthias, I have no idea how you cope with all the demands on your life and stay at the top.
This edit is absolutely beautiful, filming, editing, tune, and the multiple backwards spinning steam line at 2:58 is amazing. Give this edit some attention today, and you’ll be stoked for your session.
Few better sights in flatland than MD doing his thing, and representing our culture so well!
I just got finished helping judge the FlatQueens online contest, this contest is huge for the future of flatland! Look how many girl riders are entered in this, and the level is going up!
Congratulations to the winners, Leticia Moda from Brazil in Pro, Seima Ito in AM class from Japan, and Ayuna Miyashima winner of the New Gen class, what a future these girls have. Super stoked on this event, more power to Irina Sadovnik and Paula Hesser for hosting this event!!!
Great to see the legendary York jam is back on the events calendar, if you are in North America or fancy a trip to this legendary get together. Saturday 2nd October is the date, Jay Marley came through another amazing poster design taking an Aggro Rag aesthetic to this years design.
It’s not very often lately, that I drop what I’m doing to dedicate two hours to listening to a podcast.
Cory Fester has always been one of my favourite riders, but also a great human! This is a must listen, Francois Debroux sits down with Cory to talk all things flatland, from calling out Matthias Dandois for a battle at Flatground, travelling, judging contests, working on videoparts, and so much more…
Both Terry Adams vs Varo Hernandez are both coached by the boss, Martti Kuoppa. And go head to head right here for the third place spot, I think thats proof enough that coaching is worthwhile, and does belong in flatland. Look at Varo alone, he’s different rider now, not to mention TA!
