It’s time for Episode 82 of the Flatmattersonline Exclusives and boy is it a good one. I will go as far as saying Renz Viaje just dropped the best clip of the year so far!
This exclusive came about after Renz dropped the bike flip to two footed pedal ice cream catch on his instagram, I hit up Renz and said how about flip in flip out for a FM exclusive.
A couple of days past, and Renz said after three hours trying he got it! Insane!
Renz gave a shout out his his sensai, Yohei Uchino.
Thank you Renz for contributing and raising the level up, this is what its all about. Incredible!
It’s time for episode 81 of the Flatmattersonline Exclusives, today we have a nice one from flatland lifer Rob Alton!
Rob comes through with what I guess you would call one and a half hangglider to mccircle double decade out! Double decades are one of the best feeling tricks in the game, when you stomp a good one there’s nothing like that feeling.
Rob has multiple decades on lock, and is doing great things for the flatland scene in Hungary with his Sportzone facility, teaching lots of kids flatland skills.
Later in the year, Rob will hosting the annual Sportzone contest, get there if you can!
Whose got episode 82? Get in touch let’s keep this flowing….
As promised, it is time for Episode 80 of the Flatmattersonline Exclusives! Today we have a belter from Mickey Gaidos out of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Mickey throws down an amazing teakettle jump to spinning hitch line that just keeps building, and ends in a s super dope spinning Circle k to half bar flip Karl out! Filmed at his home riding spot by Terry Adams, I love Mickey’s energy in this when he hollers “Flatmatters”.
Thank you Mickey for contributing and Terry for filming, super dope!!
The clips keep building, and another clip is ready for episode 81 on Sunday… After that I am dry on clips, so if you are at home and wish to feature on the site. Drop me a message and let’s fire these exclusives out to the magic 100!
**Mickey however ignored two rules of the exclusives, there is music from New Order (I’m not making any money out of this YouTube I promise) and the video is filmed Portrait not landscape. Rules are made to be broken I guess, and it’s freestyle!
After two weeks filming/editing the awards last Sunday I went out for a session right after presenting the Flatmattersonline Year End awards and had a feel good session where everything on the bike felt good.
I had a new idea whilst I was enjoying the session, and as I got nearer to hitting the line I decided to put the phone down and capture it and hopefully get the FM exclusives rolling again.
I have been messing with forward ankle buster variations for a while now, and happy to tick this Fire hydrant turbine to forwards ankle buster rebate off the list. Some good motivation for me now I have some more free time after the awards.
Let’s get these exclusives rolling again, next exclusive drops on Wednesday.
What’s up everybody?
Today marks 13 years of Flatmattersonline, and whilst I was thinking what I could drop for this year the answer was staring me in the face.
I did plan to drop my latest riding edit to celebrate, but events in my personal life put a delay to that. I’m a couple of tricks short at the moment, I hope you will all see that in spring.
The answer as I previously eluded to, is the return of the FM exclusives! To document share and progress has been my motto since day 1.
Documenting your riding is a great way to personally progress and time to return to the core of what the site is all about.
I have been on sat on a few videos for a few months, hard to believe the last exclusive was six months ago. Where did that time go?
London style cat, Jason Forde came through with this great crackpacker/halfpacker line, and you can tell Jay has put a lot of time in his bike by the way he moves on the bike. And in a FM t-shirt, no less, thanks for the support Jay!!
I’m sorry to Jay, and everyone else that their clips have been lying here for months, back to it now!
It’s now time for a shameless plug, we have a Black Friday sale on right now till Monday 29th November. Tees and hoodies are now 20% off on our webstore. Thanks to everyone who has supported the site over the years, and more recently bought a tee or hoodie, this really is a labour of love and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to comment on the site.
What’s up everybody? I made a little mistake on the last episode, this is actually episode 77 not the previous exclusive. Greek shredder, Chris Vasileiou comes through with his second exclusive, and today is Chris’ birthday!
Everybody go wish Chris happy birthday in the comments section, Chris comes through with an awesome Scarlo squeak to frame stand tomahawk line that just keeps building, amazing bike control from Chris!
Thanks Chris for contributing, whose got episode 78?
What’s up everyone? It’s time for episode 75 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives, today it’s the turn of Barre Neirynck out of Belgium. Barre comes through with a solid whiplash to hang 10 seat grab move combo’ing it multiple times before a stomped out exit to pedals! BOOM!!!
Barre threw down an amazing Urban Waves contest a few years back in Belgium, and today I’m stoked to see this fresh clip out of him.
Thanks Barre for contributing, whose got episode 76? Dropping Wednesday.
What’s up everyone? It’s time for episode 74 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives, today Hoffman Bikes rider Art Thomason comes through with his second FM clip.
Art rips on both wheels, and his second exclusive is a killer back wheel line starting inside switch b flip upside down, foot pivot to switch foot mega spins and ends sending the two footed death truck turbines into orbit. I had to get a NASA reference in there somewhere, thanks Art for contributing!
And thank you to everyone who reached out to my request for more clips. We have the next two locked in, so keep these clips coming.
One of my favourite riders, Jody Temple comes through with episode 73 of the Flatmattersonline Exclusives. Jody like myself, has been battling back injuries over the past few years, so it’s super motivating to see Jody out there killing it!
JT comes through with a nice half hiker pivot to switch foot Karl 360 to steam and love the stylish hideout.
As always Jody’s riding really stands out, particularly in the current day. So fresh and clean, props to Jody for throwing down for 73! Thank you Jody!
After a short intermission on Sunday, we are back to the Flatmattersonline Exclusives!
Today it’s the turn of UK rider, Lee Wilson!
Lee is from Market Harborough, just outside Leicester here in the UK, roughly in the middle for all outside of the UK that may be curious.
Lee comes through with a smooth whiplash hitchhiker line flowed into hang 5 step steam, love the bar flip steam that follows and the smooth exit out.
Lee was a regular on the UK contest scene for many years and it’s great to see he’s still riding, and I dubbed him the UK Shintaro, super smooth elegant style!
Thanks Lee for contributing, whose got the next episode?
