Episode 51: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Will Redd


We are back on the road towards 100 episodes of the Flatmattersonline exclusives, today London Bikes CEO, Will Redd comes through with Episode 51!
Over the last five or so years, I have been lucky enough to get to see Will ride in person at the Battle in the Rockies contest in Colorado. Will is one of the most skilled riders in the game, such a strength in depth to what he’s doing on a 20 inch bike.
And he comes through right here with a amazing twist on the forward side glide, an old school flatland trick comes with a new school twist and that’s what freestyle is all about!

Thanks Will for contributing, whose got episode 52?

Episode 50: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Austin Luberba


We made it, 50 episodes of the Flatmattersonline exclusives! Thank you to everyone who has contributed towards the series that has helped inspire us all, particularly during the lockdown period.
When I started the FM exclusives again with episode 1 dropping on January 23rd, I was out in San Francisco and had the idea to start the series with Pete Brandt. I never thought we would be still doing these exclusives at 50 episodes, but now the exclusives in my opinion have become a staple of the site.

The 50th episode took a few twists and turns with people offering, but work commitments getting in the way. This however, worked out really well, Pete Brandt was the first exclusive and this year celebrated his 50th birthday, and still shows no signs of slowing down at all.

One of the new generation of pros to come out of the US, Austin Luberda from St Louis, Missouri came through with the elusive clip. I found it quite fitting that we start a new chapter with the new generation. Austin comes through with an absolutely hammer line, the gliding junkyard blindside pivot is absolutely amazing and he keeps the pace going throughout. Austin is a real name to look out for, I hope he can make a mark into the international contest scene at some point. Thank you Austin for stepping up. Whose got episode 51? Hopefully dropping Sunday….

Let me finish by saying…These clips have reached all generations of flatlanders, and that is the real beauty of doing these. Seeing all the different styles come through and inspire us all, thank you everyone who has stepped up once again….

Episode 49: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Josh Briars


We are getting so close to the elusive 50th episode!!! UK rider, Josh Briars came through with a lovely flowing whiplash to hitchhiker line ending with what I call the Degroot undertaker. Chad if you are reading/watching this, what do you call that trick?
Josh filmed this line at the Millennium Square spot in Bristol, UK yesterday, so this is literally hot off the presses. Josh celebrated his birthday yesterday to boot, happy birthday Josh!!
Great to see Josh back on his bike after a few injuries.

Thanks Josh for contributing!
Whose got that elusive 50th episode, happy to say that will be dropping Wednesday and its a banger!!

Episode 46: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Kevin Arredondo Vasquez


It’s time to get back on track with the Flatmattersonline exclusives after a short break last week. One of the main exciting things about producing these exclusives is not knowing who’s next to step up, and with the help of Robert Victoria… We have a fresh name to me, Kevin Arredondo Vasquez from Costa Rica!
Kevin comes through a smooth back line ending in the infamous Adam Kun no-handed lawnmower spin, I’m not sure what Adam calls it. Maybe the Kun spin?
Thank you Kevin for contributing, who’s got the next clip?

* Clips are currently run out, so if you want to feature here on Flatmattersonline send in your clip. Instructions how to do so, are at the end of each exclusive video.

Episode 45: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Chris Böhm


Welcome back, after some technical difficulties we are back! Episode 45 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives with Chris Böhm, Chris is one of the most energetic riders in the game, the man is all over social media like a rash and makes life work as a professional flatlander. Chris comes through with a heavy freestyle line, especially like the hang 5 switch foot ankle death switch in this one. I don’t recall seeing this too much, I am sure that will change now, this switch is amazing!
Thank you to Chris for contributing, we are edging closer to the 50 mark.

Whose got episode 46? Dropping Wednesday…

Episode 41: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Jason Kale


It’s crazy to think we are fast coming towards 50 episodes of the Flatmattersonline exclusives, and today we have a feature with Jason Kale from the York, Pennsylvania area in the US.
Jason comes through with a different take on filming a line where he links between tricks in a snappy style, inside hang 5 to no handed 5, whiplash, manuals, hang 5, mega spin, and so on.. This was a fun episode, thanks Jason for contributing.

Whose got episode 42? Dropping Wednesday….

Episode 40: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Peter Miklosi


What’s up everyone? Yesterday was a long day at work, and didn’t get the chance to be online to post, so I am a day later than usual. We made it to 40 episodes, today we have a feature with Zurich resident, Peter Miklosi. Peter was the AM World Champion a few years back here in the UK, Peter recently got the 10th place spot in Master of Creativity online competition.
And right here here he flows through a x-ft halfpacker line, mid way through to xft crackpacker, and ends it with a brakeless smith. Super rad!
I thought the general public were going to continue our international theme of walking straight through to the rider, but it didn’t happen.
Who’s got episode 41?

Episode 39: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Robert Victoria


It is time for episode 39 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives, this episode features Robert Victoria from the Bronx, New York.
During the 90’s I used to watch the 20 inch video magazines that heavily documented the New York contests, and I was stoked to see Robert contribute towards the exclusives.
I have been following his instagram over the past 6 months, regularly posting rolling clips in a tight looking skatepark spot in the Bronx.
This clip made me laugh, scooter riders being totally oblivious to anyone else is an international problem, and Robert powers through this steam whip to halfpacker line juggling to halfpacker after and maintaining focus. Joe Cicman will enjoy this one!
Stoked to see Robert step up for the episode that he filmed on his 47th birthday a few weeks back.
We will be closing in on the big 5 0 soon…

Who’s got episode 40? Dropping Wednesday..

Episode 38: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Claude Hickman


What’s up everyone ?! After a short intermission for episode 5 of Flat Snitches with Pete Brandt, and the Crackpacker, we are back to our regular FM exclusives.
Episode 38 features flatland lifer, Claude Hickman!
Many of you, will know and recognise Claude from the Fise World Online Live Stream commentaries, Claude made Hardcore Radness 1 and 2 and As the Wheel Turns when I was growing up. Hugely influential videos for me and my development, and I was stoked when Claude hit me up with this double darkside clip!
The second darkside in particular is so dope, looking like he was going to wind into a time machine and instead he scuffs backwards and flips darkside into a halfpacker. Claude has such a smooth style and this comes from years of riding.
Much respect Claude for contributing, whose got episode 39?
