Matthis Dandois teamed up with Alex Valentino during the summer to shoot this new “Magic Box” edit for Vans. This beautifully shot, and the audio with the tyres gripping the asphalt really gripped me into this one, no pun intended. The banger, backwards no handed spinning switch foot mega spin half whopper to xft inside steam at 3:27, wow! Go watch this one now, if you haven’t already!

“From the plains of Saskatchewan, SK to the bustling coastal city of Vancouver, BC, and all the way around the world, our guest has made his mark on the sport of Flatland BMX.
Creating the Flatland Manifesto video magazine series still talked about 20 years later as well as Ronin, a flatland specific parts brand sought after by collectors, he is still as passionate and in tune with the who’s who of BMX to this day.
