Jam: Toyosu volume 4 in Japan

This year Toyosu jam included some of Japan’s top flatland riders, including my personal favorite Hiroya Morizaki. His bold style with big jumps in-between back wheel and front wheel action has defined his signature style for many years. Enjoy this video recently published on yukiproject youTube channel.   The video starts off action packed, be sure to look around the city background as the video director pays close attention to not only the level of riding and difficulty of the tricks but also of the fantastic scenery Japan offers. The video was filmed on March 19th 2017 so this is all very fresh and new, in a few years from now everyone will be proud to have been a part of that moment, whether attending or viewing it on Flowzine.com As always ride...

Matthias Dandois – The Flat Side of Things 3

Matthias Dandois has officially taken flatland into the new era, check out his latest video release posted on YouTube it is unreal. His style of riding is starts breaking away from the typical spinning and mindless time machine iteration although he does spin more than roll. The video reveals a futuristic outlook into the world of flatland, he mixes his backwards roll into modern combinations then finishing it off with large jumps to sign the deal.  If you want to copy a style and think this style is one to ‘meme’ then by all means try it out, Matthias has leveled up on this technique so good luck with that.  More about Matthias according to Wiki’s and Google searches for those that are learning about him (in case you’ve been living under a freagin rock for the past 8 years!

Happy 2017, next up James McGraw not Scuffing

  James McGraw ended 2016 with this awesome video demonstrating what 2017 will bring to the wonderful world of flatland bmx. Check out this video and ping James McGraw on Facebook whenever you need some pointers of what to expect. He writes; “2016 has been the best year for me, I won 5 events as well as year end title for the AFA. It has been a year filled with Turbines, backyard variels and Crosswalks. I started this year with Scuffgate a Challenge to do my combos with minimal or no scuffing at all. I put a lot of work in to what I call my no kick rollback turn down to underside / ice cream. this trick is one I started 7 years ago with a kick in, now it is scuffless and I have achieved my goals of many no kick combos as well as a few minimal kick combos. The Last line I took my rollback turndown to the other side of the bike using my pedal step walk around. This challenge was the hardest thing I personally I have ever done and the best part is, I have been trying for weeks to end this video with this combo and it happened 🙂 on the last day of 2016 finishing off what truly has been my best year ever. I am so grateful for all my sponsors and friends that support my craziness thru out the year. I hope you like this.”  ...

Rider Spotlight: Jeff Scheer

Adam Guild posted this on Facebook and I was blown away! Jeff writes: “I started riding BMX in 1985 and wanted to mark my 30th year of riding, along with my 43rd Birthday on October 25 with a flatland edit. I pushed myself to learn many new tricks and filmed them all in 2015. Since I have been riding three decades it seemed appropriate to include many brakeless decades. Enjoy and keep riding!”...

Flatlander Spotlight: Annul Pale

  Getting back into the Flowzine of things, found out about this guy Annul Pale. It reminds me of riding in the slums of the Dominican Republic, but whats strickingly different is that Annul started riding in 2005 and lives the current generation of riders. I like his dedication to learning new tricks and stuff, maybe he can learn some rolling tricks instead of packed in spinning tricks. Either way, pretty cool stuff coming all the way from...
