    Does anyone do flatland freestyle anymore?

    Just wondering if anyone keeps up with all the old skook tricks like Miami Hoppers, Decades, etc. I still have a Hutch Trick Star stored down by my parents.

    No, nobody keeps up with them anymore - things have evolved well beyond Miami Hoppers, though you can find decade influences in various tricks... or variations.

    The Asian X-Games, unlike the US X-Games included flatland and it was the largest event they had. Those guys may be hurting to find ramps to ride, but their flatland skills are beyond belief. Very few US riders compared to what you find overseas. Much higher dedication over there.

    Still though... we have our riders including Terry Adams, Matt Wilhelm, and Justin Miller (to name just a few) that compete and blow things up at events.

    Flatlanders in this country are rare, thanks to Mountain Dew and ESPN. I've been riding flat for about 4 or 5 years now, not really super good but I've got one or two links I'm proud of.
