I've said it before and no doubt I will say it many times again, jams are really important for the growth of the flat scene, there is far more interaction between riders during a jam than at a contest, yesterday I sessioned with a few guys that I have never met before, we pushed it other on whatever combos we were doing. The community builds, friendships are made, sessions go down, this I find very motivating! And for me after all these years, I feel like jams are the future, anyone can put on a jam. It's accessible for all. 
The Leisure centre floor was pretty much perfect, the lights reflecting on the floor gave the feeling that it was slippery, but I didn't slip out once all day.Once you got used to the lighting, it was on!
About 25-30 riders made it to Brighton for the jam, the floor was so big that the hall kind of broke up into 4 sections, which was awesome, to paint you a lil picture, there was kind of a TGM section, a section with the Brighton crew, a section with myself, Trevor, Cunners, and a section with Keelan, Lee Wilson,Andy Hale, Andy Wood, and basically riders would move around all day sessioning with each other, interacting, and getting stoked on flatland!
Everyone sessioned all day, new tricks and old tricks were laid down, and a few laid back fun contests were throw in to finish the day, Yinka won the longest hang 5, Gabor won the longest peg wheelie, Keelan won the longest nose manual and hang nothing. Fun times!
Much respect goes out to Chris Carter for organising the jam, peep the lil interview I did with him (below) after the jam, as well as a lil flatmatters exclusive from Keelan. Mario will be dropping a flatsummit jam edit sometime soon. 
Let's keep the momentum going, TGM Spring jam soon?
