Máté Hocopán works with me at the skatepark and wanted to base his final media project at University about the work I do at the skatepark working with kids, coaching, helping them with sponsorships, and also outside of it coaching flatland at a local community centre. One of my favourite terms “Pro rider responsibility” became the title for his project that takes a look at the grassroots work I do on a day to day basis, behind the scenes style!

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….
