Seriously though, i really want to know what people think, i have been a street rider for some time and just started getting into flat, im not going to pretend i know a lot about all of the riders but Terry Adams has to be a good shout right?

Such a hard question but I'd have to say martti.there's just simply not many tricks he can do,front wheel and back.his stuff year ago was bad ass and his newer stuff is to.can't to much f*ck with him. I feel the same bout justin also.

I would say right now in flatland it is hard to say "The best is..."  There are great contest riders and great session riders.  there are some guys who are really pushing our sport. so saying who is best is all in the eye of the beholder. but for sake of arguement i will say terry, justin, foakes are up top right now. all time best u will get same answer.  jones and chase.

Kevin Jones and Chase Gouin.

Google Plywood Hoods.
You may be disappointed if you fail but doomed if you never try.  Some people advance through life.  Others remain stagnant and only dream of what they can achieve.  There is a difference between wanting and having, saying and doing.  Don't let those who fear progression keep you down or steal your vision.  Act out on your dreams.  Everything is real and ANYTHING is possible.

Thats because he and every flat rider is using tricks jones ,chase ,mccoy,etc. invented. So there really is no best rider.Because well it's an opinion. Terry is up there on the list anytime you can literally turn your bike in to a skateboard thats cool.

Go in the fland media and find the two 90's vids they have kevin jones and chase in them

well from when i started i ll say the best riders in my opinion.

most original riders:
kevin jones,chad degroot,andrew farish,chase gouin,martti kuoppa.hiro m,terry adams,jesse puente,jeorge gomez,adam kun,mathias,phil dolan,yohei uchino,alex jumelin,sam foakes,alexis desaulnaux and like 20-30 more

spinning masters: matt willhelm,sean peters,york uno,chase gouin,frank lucas etc

rolling masters:sam foakes,terry adams,kevin jones,chad degroot ,chase gouin...

newschool riders:mathias,adam kun,waldemar,bram...

i should refer kevin jones as he brought most of the tricks to the game so he thought most of them with chase g

i had favourite and favourite riders at different times.

i dont think you can choose one rider only...
but if i chose there would be riders that are killing both wheels

so my favourite riders is:........

Jones and Gouin are serious inspirations, but my man at the moment HAS to be Chad Johnston... His pegless stuff is amazing. 

The video speaks for itself: http://www.sickchildbikes.com/content.php?section=Videos  This is really pushing me to ride at the mo!
More off than on, but still loving it! Flatland until you can't!

I think it would be tough for anyone to ever match the sheer inventiveness and versatility of Kevin Jones, especially since it was he who came up with so many of the standard positions still in use today. There will probably never be a comparable ground breaker (speaking of volume of trick positions, switches, etc...) in flatland.

But as for who is the 'best' in the world? Such questions are relative to one's evaluational criteria. Not to mention the term 'best' is terribly vague, which leaves me thinking that questions of this sort are silly and unimportant.
Enough! I grow weary of your foolishness ninjas.
