  1. Great listening to you Effraim. You really seem to have an insight into the scene. I realized years ago to,about what you said about how flat’s become ‘elitist’, & it being disssapointing. The fact that you speak your mind, stand up for what you believe in, & in making a statement to the Xgames by starting Flatmatters, telling your sponsor you quit. And just the fact you said ‘a rider named Pete Brandt’, gives me the impression that you don’t just ‘assume’ everyone knows him,so all of the above and you helping the next generation of riders, etc, I admire what you have and continue to do. Keep it Effraim.

  2. Much respect!!!! It’s been 15 years since I rode Flatland the last time, but seeing this interview brought me goose bumps. Flat matters.

  3. E is a walking history of BMX. I wonder what his one regret is? You know, that one moment where hindsight is like: “If I only would have done that instead of the other thing…”

  4. This is the FIRST video I watched to kick off New Years day……….PROPER ! Seeing / hearing it again was mint , cant believe all that effort , selfless energy , and love that your parents put into K.O.C. , Big -E . Ive only set up a simple jam back in 2004, and it was a task for me just calling all the riders , hahaha . That first combo ! Ive always had to watch this interview twice when viewing it .
