The second Heresy edit of the day, always interesting to watch George Manos and his creativity. You will have to watch this one the whole way through, as it conveys the change in light that happens if you ride into the night time like George, not to mention some crazy new ankledeath front wheel combos with any pegs. Madness!
All about Heresy edits today, I somehow missed this one session edit from the amazing Matthieu Bonnecuelle. Nice to watch this one and see some different stuff than what you would see him do in a contest.
You may have caught word on social media like I did with Kip Williamson shredding on a new frame. I reached out to Kip for more details, read on.

It all started last year when I saw some footage from a underground contest on a island thirty minutes away from the west coast of France!
Between Normandië and Bordeaux.
The vibe was so dope, that it sparked my interest to know more about this event.
The name of the island is Île d’Yeu, and is organise by Etienne Taraud and crew, the event called Oya Street Jam! With a resident population of only 5000 people, community style.
Congratulations to Yu Katagiri, winner of the Japanese Championship in Okayama, followed by Yu Shoji and Moto Sasaki. Amazing level!!
You can watch the finals on Moyà’s twitch channel, link below.
