Today is a good day for edits, with this Part 3 Originaldade #6 edit and Gurvan’s also! 9:31 of experimental moves dedicated to Seiji Sekata! I especially liked the xft pedal spinning circle k spinning in miami hopper position body varial to circle k at the 3:25 mark and there is so much more, enjoy this one!
Five years behind bars and already is competing in the pro class and more importantly is bringing some new tricks to the game. I said it before, keep an eye on this kid, I particularly still like his signature spinning forward death truck locked in with his non standing foot on the bars no handed at the 2:13. Looking forward to the next five years Gurvan!
You might need your magnifying glasses to read this one, but here are the full results from last weekends, Astrolabe 2017 contest. Congratulations to all the winners, Julian Baron, Romain Kleine, Anatonie Rahain, Alex Jumelin and Meghane Levasseur!
I am sure I speaks for everyone in the flatland community, when I say we were all sad to hear the news of Seji Saketa being diagnosed with Liver Cancer. We all hope he pulls through and continues to fight. Saty Strong Seiji! Isaiah Jordan put together this nice edit inspired by Seiji, and had these words to say:
“The news of Seiji kind of shook me to the core, he was one of, if not the first, rider that I seen that inspired which direction I wanted to take my riding. I never got to meet or talk to him directly, but I remember asking if it was cool if i could use #SeijiStyle hashtag on some clips i was going to drop (that never got finished) a couple years ago. He replied with a thumbs up so I started and think I got about 3 clips released because I got hurt trying his hang-5 barflip. I compiled the clips I did have in honor of Seiji……#StayStrongSeiji #SeijiStyle”
Luis dos Santos just sent in this awesome new edit documenting his riding on the back wheel. From the opening pedalling rear wheel backpacker (some people call it a fudge packer I believe?!) to blender I was drawn to this, and you maybe too. Worth a watch, skills!
Bryan Huffman collected 7:36 of footage expanding on what he learnt over the winter last year at his indoor riding facility. Hit play for some cool pumping junkyard/ inside switch b variations.
It’s definitely a good day when you wake up to some fresh Dane Beardsley footage, Dane has been performing boat shows for the last year. Hit play to see his dialled show routine!

Gabe Weed just celebrated his 43rd birthday in style in Huntington Beach, California. Hit play for plenty of awesome clips filmed at the legendary beach car park riding spot right on the Pacific Ocean. Especially loved the spinning two footed pedal forward death truck pedal overtaker out at around the 3:11! Belated Happy birthday Gabe!
