The date is unknown on this event, AFA Tampa 1989/90 is what I’m working with. If you are reading this, let me know in the comments. Jay Jones, what a rider. This guy brought a lot of style to flatland, before I even knew style was a thing. Watch this amazing run, double backwards whiplash to forwards rope, switch handed hang nothings and more, Jay ruled!
Loving all this archive footage thats coming out from the legendary King of Ground contests. Today, we have footage from 2003 and a rider called Higaki. Glass smooth front wheel styles for days, so many rad techniques in these KOG edits.
rad footage from the archives to start our Friday posts, today is going to be a good day! Back wheel flow from Takeda (sorry don’t know his surname). What I do know is the Degroot undertaker line at 00:41 is so good and the second run is opposite side from the first run!!!
Great blast from the past for this weeks TBT, the Circle Cow contest on the suburbs of Paris was always a great event. Tons of quality riding in this one from the likes of Raphael Chiquet, James White, Alex Jumelin, Matthias Dandois (Steam jump over frame, boomerang to halfpacker at 2:13!), Sam Foakes (the line at 4:11!), and many more. Go watch this, loved these edits from Global Flat back in the day.
Loving the old footage that is surfacing from the OG King of Ground contests, and here is the latest that literally just popped up on my feed this morning with Shinichiro Hara!
Registration is open for the 2020 Master of Creativity, the deadlines for submitting are most likely going to be put back as many of us go into lockdown with Coronavirus pandemic affecting us all. This is as good time as any, to rewatch last years top 5 entries, and get hyped on this years MOC competition!

Great edit from the Suzuki BMX Masters 2006 by Global Flat, that Alejandro Marques recently re-uploaded. So much good riding in this from the likes of Justin Miller, Adam Kun, Kotaro Tanaka, Martti Kuoppa, Matthias Dandois, Viki Gomez, Nathan Penonzek, and many more. Well worth watching this one….
Love unedited contest footage, and this one from KOG Asakusa is awesome. So many styles on show, from the likes of Simon O’Brien, Ryoji Yammamoto, Akira Okamura, and more.
The Pegruary IGIFLATBMX Flatland Online Instagram Contest popped off in February, if you missed it on instagram. This top 12 edit is well worth a watch, congratulations to Owen Bohn once again for taking the win!
I just arrived into beautiful Lisbon, Portugal and have a few hours to kill until the other judges arrive. Let’s catch up on some updates across the globe, starting over in Brazil, and the Itapevi Moving contest. Always a strong scene there and good vibes in this one.
