He/She doesn't have to be professional.

Why are they your favorite?

What is the first video/first time you saw them?

Do they have anything to do with how you ride today?

Mine has to be Seamus Mckeon, maybe Bruno Hoffman, or Chase Hawk.

Charlie Crumlish
Edwin Delarosa

I've looked up to Edwin ever since I started riding. And Charlie Crumlish has a whole different crazy entertaining style.

Non Professional

My friends Sam and Mikey. Always pushing me to be better than I already am.

Garrett will always be my inspiration and idol because his Nike 6.0 part got me into BMXing , plus his riding says it for itself. Seems like a chill , respectful guy.

As for not professionals , anyone who likes to ride. I don't care if you're good or not. But if you enjoy biking , have fun and are a good person , I get inspired off people like that.

Sean Burns or Josh Stricker. They both were the ones that got me really into bmx.

They were/are my favorite because of their fast past riding, Both don't really seem to have a large back of tricks put into their edits either, it's more so the style and how/where they place the tricks that gets me excited to go out and ride when i should be sleeping.

Saw Josh Stricker in the primo nice try video first then the S&M I want to live. both were amazing to watch.
Sean Burns was His Anthem II part. Was just soo amazing to watch and hard to watch at the same time. At that point he became my go to rider to get hyped.

Do they have anything to do with how you ride today?
Both of them very much. Burns was the reason why I first decided to run pegs and Josh basically made me see something like a small lift in the concrete down a hill and just want to pedal fast as i can at it and send it just for fun

Favorite non pro is my good friend Lester Spottswood. So great to watch and super flowy, he can ride anything and is a really nice down to earth kind of guy. Gave me tips when i was starting off and was where i saw Josh Stricker first when he gave me a Ride BMX mag from 2006 (think it was the Issue from January) With jush stricker on the cover with "live fast, ride faster" printed on it.
It's also his birthday today so i hope to see him.

Some photos of him too

Stevie Churchill is my favorite and Brandon begin is #2

Their new OSS edits really impressed me, and I'm inspired by their riding style .

Stevie's edit inspired me to 3 down some loading docks and Brandon's made me want to halfcab off of a huge drop at the local park. I did the 3 and I'm trying the half cab tomorrow

Definitely complete street beasts like Stevie Churchill and Garrett Reynolds. And for freecoasters, I'd definitely pick Brandon Begin as technical and Shane Weston; both of whom have been riding FC's originally before the huge trend hit. I'm not really into dirt, vert, strict park, or pegless riding; just doesn't fit my comfortable zone. As for other riders, I know Tanner Easterla locally and he's a goofy-footed master. There's also this Youtube kid named Aaron Wong under the user Cab4kw2; he's like 2-3 years younger and has started grinding handrails and gets real tech with this spins both ways. He literally pulled a 180 to 720 cab to 540 cab. LIKE WTF. And I'm here still practicing manual 180's and full cabs on flat ground.. -_____- He's only like an extra half year or year difference from my riding. And everyone else who's started after me has gotten to around my level or better. It's fucking depressing as shit.
