I don't have a great video camera or Final Cut Pro, so I tried going the other direction with this video — using only mobile technology to shoot and edit it. This video was shot with my iPhone over the course of the summer of 2012 and edited using Pinnacle Studio for iPad. I wasn't trying to put together an amazing video of everybody's best tricks — I was just shooting some footage of guys riding.
I don't know how other flatland scenes are, but the Boston-area guys I ride with are great. There are new school riders fully embracing the latest styles, older riders who have adapted and continue to push themselves, and the old-timers who are happy doing older tricks. There's no drama, just riding.
Riders: Steve Jordan, Jim Cavanaugh, Sean Maher, Brian Chapman, Mike Miller, Freddy Brown, Jon Kenniston, Kieran Chapman, Rick MacDonald
