What a response, we got from the first episode of FlatSnitches. Myself and Pete are super stoked and humbled by all the feedback. FS is a labour of love dedicated to being an educational resource on the history of trick inventions for flatlanders spanning across all generations of our artform.
What we realised after the first episode is that these are episodes that can be updated as useful information (“art of facts as Pete calls it) comes forward. This wasn’t something we considered when we started FS.
We had numerous riders, for example reach out with further information about Jesse Puente doing the Plasticman after we published the first article. Articles can be updated much like tricks are, you get a refresh every so often and learn more about tricks you love to do on the daily.
Gabe Weed just celebrated his 43rd birthday in style in Huntington Beach, California. Hit play for plenty of awesome clips filmed at the legendary beach car park riding spot right on the Pacific Ocean. Especially loved the spinning two footed pedal forward death truck pedal overtaker out at around the 3:11! Belated Happy birthday Gabe!
It seems like Chad Kerley started something with that backwards manual across the infamous Huntington Beach parking lot in So. California. Bene Pfriem was driving past yesterday and saw the white van that marks where Chad got to, and had to try. Check out Bene’s attempt right here, so much bike control!
For this weeks Throwback we go back to 1996, and Ells Bells Graveyard Static video featuring Richard Zabzdyr (R.I.P), Day Smith, Gabe Weed (Gabe still shreds that lot to this day!), Sean McKinney, Phil Dolan and the rest of the Flatland Fugitives and others mixed all throughout in Ells Bells fashion!
During the 90’s some of the most progressive riding on the planet came from this lot! Every time I see an edit from HB, it takes me back. In this particular edit directed by former Ronin team mate Matt Saint Gelais, he teamed up with Bobby Carter, Sean Fontenot and Todd Carter to get a session in, check out what went down. Cali vibes!
