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!
After a lot of work behind the scenes, countless council meetings, the TGM is back resurfaced and just in need in a lick of paint. The TGM locals enjoyed their first session on the freshly tarmac’ed spot, hyped for the guys down there. Enjoy this one!
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.”
Yinka Thomas, Jason Forde, TGM Maz and Steve Green met up for a session at the weekend at the Green Mile in West Norwood, London.
From TV Coverage of Flatland to Malaysia and @paktambmx, @nurhazme_bk, @hafaya enjoy a Sunday session at Mont Kiara Skatepark. Rad to see a scene edit like this.
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!
