Hi,
I am a rider from Spain and I just have developed an iphone App and would love to hear any suggestions or thoughts, and if you are eager to help, I will appreciate it :D (Of course it's free).

Its an App that connects to a global database of spots from all over the world. The idea is that each rider from each city could upload all the spots in the place so if you travel there you can easily find the best places to ride without losing yourself in the city or having to ask other people. The app was upload a few days ago so the database is pretty much empty and I'm still adding spots, but need help from other riders around the world to make this database more complete.

I did this just because I love Bmx and after all the work it took, I just hope It could be useful to someone. If you feel like helping me (I would really, really appreciate it), you can download the app following this link :

Thank you :D

NO. Why would we want other people to know our spots? We need to keep em secret so they dont get capped. And looking for spots is the most fun thing when you are taveling

I don't see the point in keeping spots secret; it's cool to see spots that I often ride in edits.

You dont have to upload EVERY SINGLE spot, just those that cant be capped (Skateparks, famous streets spots) if you know what I mean. Looking for spot is sure funny, but if you are in another country and barely have days or hours to ride, wouldnt you like to ride as many places as possible? I dont know man, but I enjoy riding with other guys, specially if they come from other countries

Its not cool to bring ONE kid to a spot and have him tell TWENTY people about it. Thats what the app will do.

You shut up he has a point I don't and won't give spots out that you see in our videos unless you are a true homie that swears that you won't tell any of your homies at all
You guys may want to tell people your spots but if you have a legit good spot you'd be stupid to tell people about it

But for this app, if it comes on android, I'd give one or two local spots but that's it, they're kinda obvious/burned spots but if anyone wants to know if our skatepark has street spots around it to see if it worth the trek then yeah why not

That's the point, those spots that are so obvious for you, arent that obvious for people that dont know the area or live in another country

I don't see any problem with sharing your spots with people. Its not like every rider from another place is gonna say "oh hey, lets all 30 of us go across the country to ride that for a week!" If you have an interesting spot then you might get a few people pop there heads up throughout the year to ride it. You guys act like your spots will become world famous and have random people there every day. Even if people do come to ride it, its not like theyre gonna move in and be there every day. I don't see why people have such big problems with sharing, especially when you get something in return (you can view other spots that youve never seen before). I wish I had new people show up and ride my spots with me and show me theres.

Share what you want and don't share what you don't want to share. fucking rocket science up in here.

I'd be down to add to the data base, but it's going require a fuck of a lot of info to become decently useful. I'll probably upload spots that I find in other cities mostly, and use the app for personal reference when revisiting those areas. tank yew sir.

Nobody would want to ride your spots anyways, your riding capability probably doesn't go much further then curbs

I just use Extreme sports map.com if I'm traveling somewhere new, that & google maps street view is all you need, plus the dudes @ the local skateparks & bikeshops will usually point you in the right direction. Its always fun spot hunting anyway.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.
