* Matthias Dandois got in contact this week, to let me know Flat Side of Things 4 got taken down due to copyright reasons. So Matthias loaded up his amazing section again with the raw sound. This is certainly worth a repost and of course a rewatch! In related news, Matthias let me know that Flat Side of Things 5 will drop in August and he is already three tricks into filming….
Matthias Dandois digs deep in this amazing “The Flat Side Of Things 4” filmed on the road in between shows and contests in Filmed in Paris, Cologne, Huntington Beach and Hossegor with a tripod and a smartphone.
As always with Must Watch edits I like to highlight some of my favourite parts…
00:26: the fastplant 180 line that ends with an amazing signature MD spinning switch handed one handed steam step to crack!
1:46: the body english on the pumping no handed halfpacker whip to halfpacker out just to seal the deal! Absolutely unreal, this one defies all physics!
2:54: Steam jump over frame to tea kettle glide into opposite xft halfpacker pivot spinning hitch, love the foot positioning to make the last pivot switch smoothly!
3:26: steam jump backwards spinning frame tomahawk 360 varial to crack! No words needed!
3:50: possibly my favourite line of the edit! Rolling front yard turbine no handed 360 boomerang to right side halfpacker, been waiting to see this one! Wow!!
4:10: and the banger is absolutely ridiculous. Matthias just one upped his best trick banger from the Bike days, adding a pendulum so the crazy jump from xft coasting backyard, pushing it further!
Of course all the tricks are bangers, there were a few of my favourites! Pretty sure this one will be doing the rounds for the next few weeks, top stuff Matthias! Let it be said a proper athlete, that spends his year on the road, competes at the highest level and is still pushing out the video parts and take our sport/artform up a level! Merci
Matthias, today is a great day!
