Fancy watching something a little different? Really enjoyed this video where Matthias Dandois takes you on a journey of some of his favourite places to go in Tokyo, Japan.
Rob Alton is doing some great work building the grassroots scene during the winter months over in Hungary.
“The winter season is going well, here is an edit with old school, new school and no school! Featuring Csázár Balázs, Gelencsér Ádám, Gergely Szájer, Bordás Akos and Rob Alton at Sport Zone Veresegyház.”
A couple of months ago, Sebastian Grubinger met up with ESPN Latin America to shoot a series of short videos discussing the lifestyle in BMX, riding in Vienna and shoot some riding clips. Enjoyed watching these, and I am sure you will do to.
2019 has begun with a bang, 4 days in and already two Must Watch edits to get you inspired! I am a big fan of the Jimalog edits, and this 2018 Matsudo Year End Jam edit filmed on 29th December at Matsudo, Hall 21 of Forest in Chiba,Japan hits the spot!
With an amazing list of riders, Akihiko Takahashi, Masashi Itani, Yu Shoji,Takuji Kasahara, Takumi Matsumoto, Moto Sasaki, Takahiro Ikeda,Yasunari Ishijima, Takahiro Enoki, Kazuma Nakajima, and Kenji Mori.
As with all Must Watch edits, let’s get into what’s so great about this one!
2:18: Takahiro Enoki, Xft carved hitch crazy pivot to backwards backpacker backwards whiplash out, I still rewind this one after three rewinds already. Timeless move!
2:37: Takahiro Ikeda, been waiting to see Takahiro do the pedal time machine walkover decade to one kick greater into a line without laying bike down and he gets it done here and finishes the line with a time machine variation I have never seen before. Unreal technique!
6:42: Takahiro Enoki, 6:42 and Takahiro hits a dream line of mine, opposite dump ride in, pivot xft upside down ice cream pivot backwards two footed dump pivot opposite xft cream! Just beautiful!
7:30: Moto Sasaki, what a mad line to finish a wonderful edit from Jimalog. Hang ten pivot to xft crackpacker turbines (hard enough) out to xft steam pivot jump to right side pumping halfpacker carved in circles into backwards pumping halfpacker in circles into backwards one footed spinning halfpacker step through to spinning hang ten out! Ridiculous!
As well as the amazing lines from everyone, this edit has a feel good factor about it. Friends together, riding, sharing, supporting. What a start to the year, big up Jimalog and all the riders for this treat! Award nominees announced later, it’s a good day!
It feels like a minute since a fresh Kobe scene edit by Kenshiro Ojima dropped from Japan, today the wait is over! So much good content already this month it is crazy right now trying to keep up with what’s going on across the globe. The scene is looking healthy in Kobe, Japan and today we have the YBF Vol 2 featuring Fumiya Wakabayashi, Kenshiro Ojima,Toshiaki Chiwata and Kouhei Okuda. Enjoy!
Edit of the girls, by the girls, for the girls. Eri Funatsu, Sona Yoshimura, Ava Ozaki, Sakura Kawaguchi, and Misaki Katagiri feature in this feel good “Japanese flatland girls edit”. Thanks to Jay Marley for sending this one in! Go watch this one…
As we approach 10 years of Flatmattersonline, one of favourite things about running the site is not knowing what is coming up content wise each day. This morning I came across this contest footage from Japan entitled “Kimero”. I know nothing more but the riding is self explanatory.
taking a bit of time to reflect on ten years of flatmattersonline as I build up to the anniversary next Tuesday. They say time flies when your having fun and this is certainly the case here as this edit does not feel like it was made 9 years ago! This was a great day in a freezing cold TGM with James White, myself, Jason Forde, TGM Maz, Steve Green, David Leslie, Trevor Lacey, Phil Dolan and many more. Good times and great to watch this back again!
Dub is doing great things for flatland across the planet and now IGI products have made their way to Africa. Anane Deco & C.j introduce the IGI pegs and brand to the riders in Africa this is awesome!
