George Kikos gets back to riding at one of the most picturesque riding spots we see regularly here on Flatmattersonline. In this “sunny days” edit George goes back to some moves he’s forgotten about including the steamboat to crackpacker that got a few of us talking on Paulo Gepulango’s Orginal Ride in post on tuesday, bars regular rather than backwards at the 1:22 mark.
Growing up on the UKBFA I always looked at the Pros for inspiration, and Mike Cameron from Cardiff, Wales was one of those riders. Super smooth style and very creative, hit play and check a practise session for the 1987 BMX Beat. Thanks Matthew Dyer for the upload.
As we approach the last days of January 2017, Luke Malone just published this new Power Flow 3 edit documenting his progression through the first month of the year, enjoy the flow!
I have a lot of respect for riders who take a trick and push that move as far as they possibly can, the results are often amazing and truly help push our sport forward. Most recently, Hidenori Ishizaki continues to push the backwards backyard position as far as possible in his amazing ZAI12 that we featured just a few days ago and today…
Keelan Phillips continues to push the multiple nose manual g-turn to new horizons that was filmed in,as always with edits that I give the “Must Watch” tag I like to highlight what stood out for me.
00:19: Nose Manual fire hydrant whip one kick vadar scuff nose 360 whiplash to spinning half hiker, the execution and aesthetics of this line are so point!
00:42: Half cab nose to 1080 g turn nose fire hydrant whip vadar out. Arms of steel!
00:51: Possibly my favourite line, long carved nose wind into 360 nose vadar scuff to multiple ET nose g turns kicking the tyre on each 360 whip to spinning cliff to down whip tail whip out!
1:43: This line is so complex, multiple nose g turns without scuffs, then with, flow and style for days!Amazing edit that I have had to watch several times already to describe what he’s doing, thanks for this one Keelan! 2017 is already going off!
It’s been a good year for George Kikos, check out Part 1 of his 2016 year end video right here.
Amazing leftovers edit from Jeff Scheer’s 43-30 edit last night, here Jeff gives a lil’ info in the extras edit, plus you can check the 43-30 edit below also for reference. So good!
“Here’s some extra clips that I did not use in my previous 43-30 Video. All filming was from 2015. Some of it shows tricks leading up to what I included in 43-30, such as learning backwards stem boomerangs regular and opposite in order to hit the backwards stem boom rebate included in 43-40. Hope you enjoy! And if you have not seen 43-30, check it out…”
If you are keeping tabs, the greek flatland scene have been smashing it in 2016! Peep this instagram compilation edit George Kikos just published, loving the xft rocket hang 5 line at the 3:16 mark!
For this weeks throwback we go back to 2002 and a lil highlights section from OG Marton’s Trickstar 4 video, featuring Trevor Meyer, Hiro Morisaki, Effraim Catlow, a very young Adam Kun, Marton Szilagyi, Phil Dolan, and Albert Retey.
If you follow Matthias Dandois on instagram, you will have seen a few photographs from the rooftops of Paris a few weeks back, it turns the project the project he was working on was in collaboration with the famous Parisian spot “Le Perchoir” and it’s new music label “ten birds”. Hit play to check Matthias riding the best Parisian rooftops he could find.
Late in 2015, some of the Haro team visited Puerto Rico for an end-of-year getaway.
Island vibes and good times with Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley, Jason Watts, Mike Gray, Tyler Fernengel, Maxime Charveron and Matthias Dandois. MD throws a few nice lines in this one!
