Must Watch! Master of Creativity 2016 Final Round – 13 to 6

13to6 MOC from Martti Kuoppa on Vimeo.

The level went up several notches for the final round of the 2016 Master of Creativity contest, so amazing to see every rider push their level, and ultimately bring a whole bunch of new tricks to flatland! Here is the 13th through till 6th place edit Martti Kuoppa just put together, so proud to be involved in this amazing event for flatland that has without a doubt brought the most progressive riding of the year out and motivated us all! Respect to everyone!!

My personal favourite lines:

Forkone: Fire hydrant chick whips stem lash at 00:28.

Kevin Jacob: Nose stemlash nose g-turn at 00:58.

Hidenori Ishizaki: Xft pedal backwards facing backyard jump to pegs backwards backyard degroot undertaker out at 1:07.

Sakis Doumas: Hitch darkside to no footed dump truck kneeling on pedal at 1:51!

Will Redd: The Mix of the old school with Xft forward side glide to the contemporary 360 pivot to halfpacker + the following elbow glide turbine line is so good!

Sean Fontenot: Xft cab line to decade off the pedals around the 2:57 mark!

James White: Xft lawn flip gliding gerator to whiteski smith decade to xft hitch juggler flip back to xft lawn gliding gerator to whiteski decade out at 3:06!

Kazuya Hirayama: The opening xft backward spinning lawn stubble duck to gliding gerator to forward death truck out at 3:40 is beautiful! Followed by backwards opposite spinning lawn direct to pedal death truck! Wow!

Landscapes Review

Review: Effraim.

DVD’s in the modern era are a sad rarity in our scene from my perspective, during the last two years you can count those on less than one hand. Dane Beardsley’s Same thing daily project and IGI’s travel video are all we have had. Stewart Munro from Australia stepped up to the plate with an ambitious project to collect and edit together rider sections from all the planet, when you think about that in the modern internet culture and free edits available everyday it almost seems like a thankless task.

Thankfully Stewart stuck to the task which being so far away from all the other riders is I can imagine a tough task to collate together. The downloadable video straight to your laptop is catching on in other sports such as Skateboarding, more recently massive companies such as Adidas are releasing their projects for a small fee online. Will it catch on to what is essentially a small flatland audience? Only time will tell…

Lookback: May 2015 – The Flatmattersonline 2015 Year end awards

Looking back, May was a crazy month in the year, check through my highlights from the month….


Sean Fontenot’s riding always has me on the edge of my seat, check this latest short edit where he states “I’ve always been good at G-turns, but bad with nose manuals. I’ve decided to correct that.” Shot with Konova K7 Slider (aside from last shot) Sean’s riding is so explosive, amazing stuff at the Globe spot in Long Beach, California!


Flatland legend, Trevor Meyer kills this Chiacgo parking lot between shows on the front and back wheel. This is well worth a watch!


At the age of 43, Todd Carter has made the move up to the Pro ranks and is arguably riding better than ever. Check out this great edit he just put together to celebrate, it’s going down for real!
