STOKED on your approach to your riding now days , SHORT SWEET BANGERS, loads in this video . Lash to BAR FLIP / PIVOT to cross steam at the EXACT same time to START the combo , YOUR ORIGINAL sling shot to crack , NO HANDED pressure flips , Karl SHUV-ITS to X-LEG half hikers , CROSS steam lash / bar flip exit , the works through out this whole interview ! You REALLY have to WATCH then AGAIN watch to LISTEN to the interview , at least I did , as the combos AND interview are BOTH stellar mate !!!!! MUCH respect to you for PUSHING through injury , CONTINUING your PROGRESION with EVERYTHING you have on your DAY TO DAY plate ! WOW talk about DEDICATION / D.I.Y./ WORK ETHIC , PAYING 100 QUID to circulate ZINES GLOBALLY and selling LOADS of stickers TO PAY YOUR OWN WAY to get STATE SIDE for COMPS !!!

  4. ANNNNNNNND what a BOLD statement indeed to the industry , after flat getting dropped in 2004 at the x-games , starting FLATMATTERSONLINE.COM showcasing as you said not just tricks on a bike , but ALSO the LIFE STYLE / VIBE AND IMPACT that flatland HAS had on bmx as a whole !! Really interesting that you were chatting to a skater in a skate shop and him suggesting a blog , THEN the START of this site , how you had to GATHER content , start discussions , etc , etc !!!! You took it up on your own to represent the global scene / life style / rhyme AND reason for the ART of flatland , GLAD you did !! Never knew you hated bike maintenance ………..ME TOO !!!!
