Old School Sundays – Hardcore Radness 2

For this weeks OSS we go back to a great video from the Hickman brothers, “Hardcore radness 2”, thanks to Kurt Schmidt for uploading a segment of this featuring some great footage from the Make A Wish contest in Virginia with the likes of Pete Brandt in his O-zone days, Ross Smith, Josh Marsele, Tyson Godfrey, Danny Meng, and many more. I feel like this contest and period of time bridged the gap between old/mid school.

Throwback Thursdays – Proseed A & B

It has been a few good weeks for the flatland archives here on FM! And today a real treat from the japanese flatland archives, and the history of the King of Ground contest. The Proseed A and B videos by Juicy Vision has to go down as one of the best contest videos ever, featuring York Uno, Hiroya Morizaki, a young Moto Sasaki, Martti Kuoppa, Viki Gomez, Michael Steingraeber, Shintaro Misawa and many more. Do yourself a favour, grab a cuppa and enjoy this great piece of flatland history.

Flatland Manifesto #1 2001

The archive keep coming, another great blast from the past today that many of you might have seen but need to. Shane Neville did an amazing job with Flatland Manifesto, issue 1 has great coverage from the La Revolution contest in Toronto, Houston Texas scene repo, Art Thomason, How to pinky squeak with Cory Stratychuk, and a amazing Anaheim B3 contest edit: look out for the xft hitch backwards backpacker line from Martti Kuoppa at 32:34 mark that just keeps going. 16 years later this still rules!
