Last minute information from Lima, Peru - the Start Combat contest takes place this weekend. Thanks to Williams Perez for letting us know about it.
"START Combat is back in its second edition and this year is part of the South American circuit and is included in the program ´Al Damero de Pizarro Sin Carro´ The event will take place in the Plaza de Armas of Lima and the competition area will be conditioned with a special platform so that athletes can perform their best maneuvers. The competition format will be battles, each athlete will have a qualification round and then move on to the battle box where they will face 1 vs 1 until they reach the final."
Two real artists teamed up for this video! Sevisual behind the camera and Benjamin Hudson in front of it. Ben was in hungary for a few days and they made very good use of that time. Even Ben is stoked on the result: "since i started riding one, of my biggest motivation was videos, especially Sevisual ones because of the balance between the riding level and how good the video looked in general. Now 9 years later im in one of them, thats dope"

Dub is a busy contest rider and traveller. Such a schedule doesn't make it easy to work on new combos or focus on video projects. He took some time to film his new 2018 links at different places around the world. There is a lot of amazing stuff in there. Enjoy!
"The PURO FLAT 2018 Series is my intention to stay true to the artform that comes through Flatland before simplification for competitions and all other forms of it may it be shows or whichever...this is just me and the camera (phone) for the sake of the artform!!!
As I compete and travel the World, finding the energy to give time for these edits has been a challenge. Here is a compilation of new tricks and / or combos filmed in Montreal, Shenzhen and Beijing throughout 2018 Spring season."

No Raffles, No Contests, No Trophies, JUST JAM!'
