  1. Ah yes the frustration of course, & the annoyances of flat. Nice short links but you forgot to say ‘damn it”, like Jody Temple in Same Thing Daily, Anthony. This itself, is probably 1 of the reasons many people don’t have the patience for this crazy little thing called flat.

  2. Very true, but I think you can say that about anything Tristan. To be good at anything takes a level of frustration and hard work to reach that point otherwise what happens is you just get bored and move to the next thing. There are levels to this of course, but if something too easy I think people turn off from it. Props to Anthony, he’s a smooth cat.

  3. There’s no doubt more people would rather kick a football around, hence why I said many haven’t got the patience for flat. How many times have we been riding somwhere, & someone may say, if I tried that, I’d break my neck, or something similar.

  4. Totally get that Tristan, but when you think about it… to be good at football? Thats hard to me ho many footballers truly have a lot of skill most are totally overpaid for what they actually do, its maybe easier just to kick a football then it is to do a trick on a bike. It’s about stepping stones and raising peoples motivations. I do that a lot when I am coaching kids flatland, I teach any trick in order to build motivation and so far touch wood, its working!

  5. Agreed footballers are overpaid. At least it’s debateable to some. And they get the cash because they’ve a huge following. I actually respect footballers, because they can do what I can’t. And the same goes for riders who can do what I can’t.

  6. I appreciate you sharing Anthony’s edit. This guy means a lot to me and has really taken me under his “Flatland” wing. He’s was one of the first people I ever saw ride Flatland and totally blew my mind. His love for riding inspires me on the daily. This guys lives, breathes, and sleeps bmx and has a true appreciation for for all riders and supporters.

    Fantastic edit, Anthony! Keep being you!

  7. Refreshing riding with brakes and flow ! Love it !
    And yeah it takes times and dedication to achieve any trick or combo, sometimes it drives us crazy but damn…when you succeed…Nobody can understand what it is !!!
