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!

Schools Out – Miami’s In

Schools Out – Miami’s In

These boys were right in my backyard and I missed it. Well now that school is out lets tear apart the streets of Miami…who’s coming with me?! Wish that I knew these dudes were in town, hope there a next time. They shredded all the spots I walk by nearly every day, and most importantly they had all total disregard to the guard in Brickell. Hahahah that was hysterical! Here is what we copied from the YouTube posting: Miami. What a crazy place. The entire Odyssey team spent a week in this outrageous palm tree and concrete jungle, and every day was a struggle. Tom Dugan, who’s back was already tweaked prior to the trip, had his bike stolen the first day. Jacob Cable fell deathly ill and was bedridden for most of the trip. Our Airbnb host tried to steal our bike rack, and our jet ski tour guide lost his shit when we were, according to him, being too reckless on the jet skis (he worries too much and also needs to chill). And we got kicked out of a lot of spots. And not just kicked out, but brutally screamed at and degraded, or even physically attacked. But the Odyssey team will not be stopped.   These guys rode as hard as they could every day, banded together against those trying to prevent us from doing our thing, and filmed a damn fine video, even in the face of so much adversity. Enjoy! Featuring Aaron Ross, Brandon Webster, Broc Raiford, Gary Young, Justin Spriet, Jacob Cable, Matt Nordstrom, and Travis...

Life and Times of Jose Junior Polanco

Life and Times of Jose Junior Polanco

Today we celebrate the birthday of Jose Junior Polanco. How quickly the years pass by yet it still feels like yesterday my brother and I were riding in the streets of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The year was 1988 and Danny Valentin was eager to introduce me to one of the best riders on the island. Danny kept spreading the word that Junior Polanco was by far the best rider on the island and that nobody could match his skills.  That year a contest was held at the “Cristo” spot and sure enough Junior Polanco alongside with Luis Lamarche and Robert Victoria crushed it on Flatland. Their smooth riding styles reflected many learned lessons from 101 Freestyle Tricks video which they studied daily. Inspired by Martin Aparijo, Dennis McCoy and all the big name riders featured in that video, Junior Polanco demonstrated that he too could ride like the American Pro’s. However what defined Junior Polanco was not his ability to learn the tricks shown on the videos but to build from it into a style of its own. After winning that contest and several other local competitions he went off to take on a bigger challenge, to be the King of New York. Competing against riders like Adam Guild, Jim Dellavalle, Mike Wilson, Rodney Morweiser and John Silvestri to name a few was no joke. The Mullaly Skate park crew U.N.D. (Underground Never Dies) led by Luis Perez and Robert Ramos took a liking to Junior Polanco and indoctrinated Junior Polanco into the crew. Jim Dellavalle even drove in the rain with music blasting to JFK Airport in New York City to pick up the newest member of the family. Junior Polanco spent the majority of that first arrival at The Limelight nightclub as he waited for the U.N.D. busrats to finish their shift at 5am so that he could chill with the boys. 1994 was a fun year, and Junior Polanco lives to tell the tale much better than this short blog. A trip to Norway somehow ensued…good times!  Well Junior took the title of The King Of New York on Flatland that year and the next! He competed against local, national and international riders alike, ultimately earning the respect of the famed Chase Gouin of the Plywood Hoods. Folks I am jumping around in some timeline here but let me just say this…Junior Polanco is by far the most talented rider that I have ever had the honor of riding with! Today he turned 40 something…never really keep track of age…and to celebrate his birthday I have decided to share this moment onto the Flow Zine pages...

Leap Day Leap Year with Billy Perry

Honoring leap day, February 29, 2016 I found this pretty awesome video by Billy Perry. He took a flight from New York City to Los Angeles then grabbed his camera and bike, then crushed it on this killer session. He writes: This was filmed in about 2 hours on a chill day riding around Downtown Los Angeles with my friend Bill Malkotsis. I wish I had more time to film this one but it is what it is. The first two clips were from a different day. Filmed with a GoPro Hero 3+ Black. I hope you enjoy!
