Annul – Indian Slum Kid Becomes Insane BMX Champ

Whilst the title of this video seems like Clickbait, this is a great story. I never knew of any flatlanders in India until today. Meet Annul:

“A pizza delivery boy who was thrown out onto the streets by his father has become one of India’s best known BMX champions. Growing up in the slums of Mumbai, India, 26-year-old Annul Pale had a passion for cycling from his early days and developed an interest in BMX after watching the stunts on a sports channel. After experimenting with skateboarding and b-boying, Anul got into BMX stunt riding in 2005 and has since won numerous championships and even appeared in a movie.”

A Wicked Ride – History of BMX Freestyle in New England

Pure gold from the archives of BMX today that everybody needs to watch and get educated. It is well documented on Flatmattersonline that I am a big fan of the New England flatland scene, growing up sharing Radazine and Wire ‘zine from an early age definitely helped me progress and be really motivated to ride a lot. Scott Moroney came through with this amazing project, don’t sleep on this everyone! Today is a good day!

Many of you will know Bobby Carter made the move from LA to Hawaii, this move seems to have fuelled the fire within Bobby and he’s giving great things back to flatland and the culture. The Aloha Jam being his first offering I’ll be catching up with him real soon to talk about the jam, for now enjoy these short one minute edits that capture the vibe perfectly. Aloha jam anyone??

Romulo Guerra & Fabiano – Routine

The lifestyle is often missing from the modern day edit, just trick, trick. It has become the norm, the Aloha jam post earlier today reminds us of the “other side”. Romulo Guerra & Fabiano just dropped this really nice edit that shows their routine in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, “Velho” is Romulo’s best friend and he practice at Romulo’s home spot in the morning, and Romulo practice at night after he arrives home from his job. Refreshing to watch this!
