I hit Barre Neirynck a message after I saw a few photos on Instagram,. Whats this event Barre? I don’t know much about it, it looks amazing. Barre came through with this repo, shouts to Barre and Djou Nien for helping out with photos. Nice to get a repo back here on Flatmattersonline. Enjoy this one!
It all started last year when I saw some footage from a underground contest on a island thirty minutes away from the west coast of France!
Between Normandië and Bordeaux.
The vibe was so dope, that it sparked my interest to know more about this event.
The name of the island is Île d’Yeu, and is organise by Etienne Taraud and crew, the event called Oya Street Jam! With a resident population of only 5000 people, community style.
James White came through as always with this solid edit from Sunday’s Lets Go jam down in Hastings, UK organised by Amos Burke. Props to the guys that made it down and made the most of the damp carpark, and braved the conditions. Really enjoyed watyching this one, the soundtrack definitely adds and fits the UK vibe!
Flatland lifer, Rob Alton took a short break from coaching flatland at his amazing Sportszone venue in Budapest, Hungary and made the trek to Athens Greece.
You may recognise this spot from previous videos featuring Sakis Doumas, this jam edit features the likes of Rob, Sakis Doumas, Giannis Caternellis, George Kikos, and many more.
Enjoy this one, well worth a watch!
Weeks on from the Jam Circle weekend, and still amazing footage and edits coming through. Case in point here with Jim Mckay’s Pre jam edit featuring the likes of Jean Francois Boulianne, Pete Brandt, Terry Adams, Omari Cato, Art Thomason, Scott Powell, Sietse van Berkel, Benjamin Hudson, Jean William Prevost and so many more.
Great edit from the recent Darwin Flatland Jam, featuring the likes of Aude & Max Cassagne, Varo Hernandez, Alberto Moya, Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Jeremy Brosset, Anatole Rahain, and many more. Good vibes over in France.
The annual One Love Jam just went down last week in So.Cal. Always a good time with everyone, lucky enough to have gone to this event twice. Props to Darin, always throwing this Jam every year and getting the community together.
“The 13th annual OneLoveJam2023 went back to it’s roots. Since rain was in the forecast we decided to hold the event and pre jam at the Long Beach Marina parking lot on Friday.
Thanks again to all the riders who made it down and thanks to all the sponsors, we will see you next year MLK Weekend.

It’s hard not to get nostalgic going back to The Green Mile, it turns out it’s been 5-6 years since I was last at this legendary riding spot for the UK flatland scene (search TGM on the sidebar of the website to see what I am talking about.
Yinka Thomas threw down a jam last weekend, with the help of Jason Forde and my schedule was for once free so attending the jam was a no brainer.
The forecast wasn’t looking too great, but it was worth the risk as it os October after all you just never know. As it turns out the weather forecast was pretty much bang on, with two heavy showers throughout the day enough for the ground not to dry all day.
