James McGraw: Better with Age

James McGraw from James McGraw on Vimeo.

I am so late to the party posting this one, I can almost hear the gnashing of James’ teeth for Colorado. The title “Better with Age” is a bold one, but I have to agree Mr McGraw shows no sign of slowing down. Worth highlighting a few things that I was stoked on!

Standouts:
-The no handed switch b jump to junkyard at 00:46!
-Ice Cream pivot switch b rideout with no scuff at 1:34!
-Pedal Time pedal pivot to junkyard line at 2:54, all in a FM tee no less….
– And my favourite, the banger at 3:13!

Enough of my descriptions, go watch this one if you haven’t already, Sorry this took so long to get online James!

The first Must Watch edit of 2022, and it’s no surprise it comes from Jimalog’s latest!

Must Watch: Viki Gomez / Rise 3

Viki Gomez / RISE 3 from Viki Gomez on Vimeo.

It’s been a quiet few weeks as we get into the festive season. Viki Gomez changed all that with this amazing new “Rise 3” put together by Sevisual. Viki showcases arguably the biggest tricktionary in the game, everything Viki does is amazing, but the standouts for me in this one:

2:56: Bike flip line that just develops as the line goes on, more and more tech, that x-ft ice cream body varial takes the cake for me, beautiful!

4:43: Steam Kickflip to halfpacker which is a Viki staple move, watch the new ride out!

Don’t sleep on this one…..

Norwich Flatland Jam

A throw-away comment on facebook was the catalyst for the first ever flatland jam in Norwich, Norfolk. Organised by Adam Stembrowicz and Paul Senter, less than a week later saw an impressive eleven riders assemble. New friendships were formed and old friendships rekindled, whilst some dope riding went down.
Thanks to Yinka Thomas and Miguel Pargas for their capturing the event and big props to Yinka for the amazing edit.

The UK needs more jams.

Must Watch: James White / Systems Overload

I wasn’t joking a few moments ago on Peter Olsen’s Must Watch trick that it’s a good day for edits here on Flatmattersonline! James White once again comes up with a solid part, that explores a lot of really intricate two wheel on floor boomerang type moves, his amazing stalled switch-b (no -handed no less!), and a whole lot more.
The editing, tune, and the genius of Whiteski once again deserves that Must Watch tag. The MW firewall is breached today.
It’s time to go riding….
