Episode 76: Flatmattersonline Exclusive with Rodney Williams


What is up everybody? It is time for episode 76 of the Flatmattersonline Exclusives, today it is the turn of the one and only Rodney Williams!
Rodney comes through with his second FM clip, and 77 is more in keeping with Rodney’s style. Throwing down a long line, love the circle k pedal bar flips in this one. This is a move that I used to do a long time ago, and seeing Rodney do these made me feel like learning these once again. It’s great that clips can inpire you like that!
Thanks Rodney for the motivation, and for contributing.

Whose got episode 77? Hopefully dropping Sunday…

    • Thank you , JAY FLATLDN ! I appreciate the love , campeon ! I’m just paying tribute to Andy Menz , Nate Hanson , and……..OF COURSE , Effraim Catlow with this exclusive . Watching my combo , it’s VERY obvious , haha…..it’s all their stuff from 1994 to 1996 !! MID SCHOOL , TIMES 7 …….

  1. Another banger link. Think I counted 5 bar flips in there?! All slightly different variations. You slaughtered this one Rodney! Even threw in a history clip with the OG article shot. I bet you got the sickest bmx mag collection to flip through. Hours easily lost hahaha!! So stoked on this! I saw your suggestion you posted to push/add to the episode 66 clip. I got something in the works for that one, and there’s the lil combo I was initially trying to get on film for over a month and a half before I diverted and threw that one down. I still haven’t hit this thing but its got 2 brand new tricks for me in it, one of which I’ve never landed before. Trying to film a clip in one take and land something that I’ve never hit while doing it has proven to take longer than I had hoped, but it’ll be worth it. Eventually I’ll be able to drop long smooth links like this one you just threw down. It’s a piece by piece building process, kinda like getting your building blocks together then stacking them up how you want. You got your flow locked down solid, the time you’ve put in is paying off and it shows in your riding. As always, thanks for the motivation and creative input Rodney! You absolutely Shredded this one!
