Snakebite BMX just uploaded a lost gem from the archives, I feel like not many of you will have seen this video from 1993. West Coast 4130 documents the So Cal riding scene featuring sections from Edgar Plascencia (4:58), Sean McKinney (12:10), Day Smith (24:26), mixed section 29:26 featuring many more riders like Gabe Weed, Andrew Arroyo, Jesse Puente…. Plenty of time to kill at the moment, and this one is worth a watch and a trip down memory lane. West Coast style!
The good folk over at Snakebite BMX uploaded this blast from the past last night, Wilkerson Airlines: Non Stop To San Francisco takes you back to how BMX videos used to be. Flatland amongst BMX, not just a sideshow. So much good riding threaded throughout the video in this one from the likes of Gabe Weed, Day Smith, Chad Degroot, Edgar Placencia, and many more.
*I will be logging full box videos under the “BMX Videos” tag on the sidebar for all those wishing to watch full videos!

Around mid-day Friday, myself and Pete set off for the long drive to Los Angeles for the 10th anniversary of the One Love Jam in Newport Beach, California. We met up with Dylan Worsley about an hour out of SF, and travelled down with Dylan. Like last year, we stayed about an hour outside of Newport Beach, in Corona at Robert Castillo’s house. Friday was a full day of travelling, and when we arrived full party mode was in full effect, we were greeted by Robert, his wife Stephanie, Ruben, EZ Chris, and Bill Nitschke.
What a week here on Flatmattersonline, so many amazing edits and also some great stuff from the flatland archives. And today, we have another belter from Adam Guild. I recall having a video tape of this contest back in the day from Armen Djerrahian, anyway today it is great to see all this footage together from the 1993 Shimersville, PA BS Contest featuring Brian Tunney, Bill Nitschke, Gabe Weed, Dennis McCoy, Chad Degroot, and Chase Gouin. Thank you Adam for the upload and trip down memory lane…

Johann Chan and friends made it over to California recently for the S&M 30th anniversary bash.
Here’s what Johann had to say about this one: “Featuring one of my favourite new school riders Benedict Zartost, Diversion film maker legend Bobby Carter, Huntington Beach legend Gabe Weed & Carpark moonie legend Rich Slezak.
The video was all made in transit, using Splice on my iPhone 5 with additional graphics using Aftereffects, all compiled on the train on the way to work!”
