Hit play for a nice chilled vibe edit, thats far removed from all the contest footage recently! Here’s the word from Sebastian:
“About 3 years ago Michael Husser told me he is going to live in New Caledonia. First thing I did was to check on the web. I had no idea where it’s located and found out it’s an island in the South Pacific Ocean – far away!”
Freddy Brown put together his nice edit from the Charlotte, North Carolina jam recently featuring Bryan Huffman, Isaiah Jordan, Kevin Washington, Mark Coates, Lee Mejia, Erin Fricke, Fox Kinsman, Jason Harrison and Freddy. Hit play!

Like everyone when the iBMXff World Championships were announced a few months back, I thought “Where the hell is Flatland?”, there were various trains of thoughts from most of the flatland community, but it seemed summed up with “it’s not the worlds without flatland”, emails went back and forth. If I am being honest, I didn’t think Flatland would be included with budgets and all….

It’s always a good day when Giannis drops a new edit, along with a great description to boot:
“Flatland for me is art. Like painting, every trick is a different colour and the final result by combining a lot of different colours of your choice is something personal and so unique only BMX riding can bring me that feeling.
With pure love for the sport and inspired by the Master of Creativity contest, this is my painting!”
Whilst I was at the iBMXff World Championships at NASS, I noticed Toon had a new bike which turns out to be his new Junglerider signature model. You can check the first shots of the frame and the specs right here on Flatmattersonline, plus a spy shot of the “hermit” stem that will be available in October, that will come in 40/50mm sizes.

Korean profesional flatland rider, Hee Sung Lee has been over in Europe for the past month travelling to all the big contests during his time over here. Hee Sung Lee mixes flatland and street really well, hit play for this one mostly shot in Paris, France by the look of it.
I missed last weeks OSS with being at the Worlds at NASS, this week we back to 1986 and the BMX Beat TV Show contest in Carlisle UK with Ian Tovey. Inventor of the weedwacker, you can see that move around the 1:33 mark.
