Catching Up with Todd Carter

I’m really enjoying doing these “Catching Up” interviews and today I interview Todd Carter, one of the smoothest riders in the flatland game and a man that doesn’t get enough credit in the flatland scene. Lot of history with Todd’s longevity in the sport. It was great to interview Todd and hear his story, grab a cuppa and enjoy this episode:

00:56: How long has Todd been riding for, and how did he get into flatland?

3:13: What was Todd’s first flatland competition?

4:38: I never knew that myself and Todd both rode for Hutch, and the Ohio scene shaping Todd’s riding.

8:00: What are some of Todd’s favourite memories from the AFA Masters?

10:29: How flatland is good for physical and emotional health, and forget about life issues?

11:54: What can modern day flatland learn from era such as the AFA masters where there 130 people in Todd’s class?

14:20: Moving from Ohio to Los Angeles and living the Californian dream.

17:45: Moving back to Ohio and building a flatland spot.

21:40: Coming from that era where what music you rode to was a big deal. What music is Todd into?

23:42: Bringing the American Flatland Association back.

26:00: Having two kids that both ride flatland.

29:36: The transition from expert rider to professional.

32:35: Plans for 2018?

33:21: Being a good rolemodel for the flatland scene, and what device would he give to the future generations?

35:47: Any final thanks?

Old School Sundays – Hardcore Radness 2

For this weeks OSS we go back to a great video from the Hickman brothers, “Hardcore radness 2”, thanks to Kurt Schmidt for uploading a segment of this featuring some great footage from the Make A Wish contest in Virginia with the likes of Pete Brandt in his O-zone days, Ross Smith, Josh Marsele, Tyson Godfrey, Danny Meng, and many more. I feel like this contest and period of time bridged the gap between old/mid school.

Make A Wish Foundation Contest 1989

Another day, another great upload from the archives from khelagger. Today we have some run footage from the Make A Wish Foundation Contest 1989 with Pete Brandt, Danny Meng, Chris Poulos, Ross Smith, Dennis McCoy, and Josh Marsele. Great upload, thank you khelagger whoever you are!
