Starting the week with something out of the ordinary, Charles Paty teams up with director, Vincent De La Rue for his new edit, Octa. Hit play and enjoy.
3000 Combos from September 2014 until today, Saturday 8th December 2018. Giannis Caternellis is one away from a huge milestone, who’s wants to see the 100th episode in his freestyler series? For now, enjoy the 99th in his amazing series, serious dedication to get this done.
It seems like Joe Cicman was made for the Master of Creativity contest and when didn’t enter this year I was curious as to what he was up to riding wise. Today the wait is over and for his year-end edit, he teamed up with Jim McKay for something special. From the opening Jaffa rebates, how many does he do? 10-11? I was glued to the screen wondering what was next. My shinbones ached just watching that first clip, I’m always into riders that master their craft, and do the lines they do as best they can and Joe really put some effort into the details of his riding to make the lines have as much impact as they can.
00:57: The huff packer (I believe thats what it’s called) to halfpacker jump two footed backyard.
Aside from the riding, Jim McKay did a great job I feel communicating Joe’s personality throughout the edit, the two complimented each other really well.
2:06/2:35: The hitchhiker version of the Jaffa whip rebate, really inspiring to see Joe take his Jedi skills to another trick and in turn create something new particularly that second line where momentum is coming out of nowhere and 3:13 Jaffa whip death jump to two footed backyard, although not pulled. This almost adds to the hype!
And not a scuff in sight from Mr Scuffington Post himself, the critics gather round…
Fanks a lot for this Joe and Jim, you made a rainy Friday in Southsea so much better!
Last night it happened again, I see a notification for a new Nick Watts edit right as I am about to go to sleep. It’s become a late night Thursday ritual to save Nick’s video for the morning. I feel like I must scythe same thing every week, but bot can Nick freestyle. I feel the term gets thrown a lot in flatland circles, but Nick is a true freestyler. These lines look like they are thrown together without an idea of where they could end up, bike control, quick awareness and so much style. There are a couple of standouts that made my morning I wish to highlight: the Double boomerang off the back tyre popped into xft cowboy at 00:16 and the No footed flail land back pegs to caboose at 1:07 both brought a smile to my face. It’s raining outside, thank you Nick!
Last week I was so engrossed in editing the 10 years of Flatmattersonline I missed a lot of edits including one of myself that TGM Maz kindly put together to celebrate the anniversary. I contacted Maz to be on one of the episodes and he wants able to come through, so he made this edit instead, thank you!
Missed this summer edit from the 12 year old French shredder, Julien Baran who is progressing so fast and really well filmed to boot. Big ups Julien and Florent Lamour Visual for this one!
I got the chance to see Anatole Rahain ride back in the summer at the Urban Waves contest in Belgium and this dude is on the come up, really dialled. How many talented riders are coming out of France these days?….
It is amazing what you can get done in a small space as illustrated in this new “less is more” by Sebastian Grubinger. Sebastian is on a family vacation in Mallorca, look out for the line at 00:45!
Good morning all! My mind is still a blur after that Matthieu Bonnecuelle edit last night, let’ get some morning updates from across the globe.
Renz Viaje meets up with a new talent in the Philippines flatland scene, 15 years old Dwyne Lopena is from Dauis, Bohol and has a bright future if he sticks at it.
