Nice, short and sweet feel good edit from the recent IGI Flatland Jam in Montreal, good work from Dub making this jam happen and keeping the scene together.
Plenty of content to get you pumped for the weekend flatland sessions, Max Cassagne sent in this rad Winter Jam edit from Toulouse, France featuring Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Kevin Jacob, Joachim Sontag, Stephane Suini, Renaud Laspeyres & Maxime Cassagne. Enjoy!
The official One Love Jam edit just dropped, and it’s a banger! Good vibes and great riding from the biggest jam in flatland at the legendary elementary school riding spot in Newport Beach, California. Hit play, and get stoked!

Around mid-day Friday, myself and Pete set off for the long drive to Los Angeles for the 10th anniversary of the One Love Jam in Newport Beach, California. We met up with Dylan Worsley about an hour out of SF, and travelled down with Dylan. Like last year, we stayed about an hour outside of Newport Beach, in Corona at Robert Castillo’s house. Friday was a full day of travelling, and when we arrived full party mode was in full effect, we were greeted by Robert, his wife Stephanie, Ruben, EZ Chris, and Bill Nitschke.
Last year was my first experience of the One Love Jam, and can honestly say this was the best jam I have ever been to. Beautiful sunshine, Cali beach setting, awesome fast and huge riding surface, flatlanders and BMXers from all generations, whats not to like?
The 10th anniversary jam hype is building nicely, 1327 W Balboa Blvd, Newport Beach California is the venue, next Saturday (18th January is the date). Over 120 riders expected, I will be flying out on Monday. Looking forward to this, soak up the One Love Jam vibes in last years edit. See you there!
Burd Phillips was on hand to document some of the action from this weekend’s MidWest Jam featuring Austin Luberda, Ron Monis, Andy Cooper, Chris Armstrong, Jake Jackson, Anthony Schneidewind, Andy Cooper, Burd Phillips, Marty Clark and more. Good vibes from the Q skatepark in Indianapolis.
Great edit from a windy Umikaze Jam featuring the Open and Expert Class Top3. Look out for a wild teakettle ride out at 1:57 that I have never seen before, and Kio Hayakawa’s backyard turbine jump out to pedals at 3:03!
Great footage from the recent Voodou Jam in Japan, not to to be confused with the Voodoo Jam in New Orleans. Hit play for some killer riding from the likes of Masashi Itani, Enoki Takahiro, Shinde Yoshihiro (look out for the wild rock walk type move at the 2:30 mark), and I can’t ID the shredder on the green bike who won the jam, amazing riding!
Fancy a break from contest coverage on the site? Hit play for a really well put together Toulouse jam edit featuring the likes of Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Kevin Jacobs, Alex Jumelin and many more.
