When I was in around first grade my parents bought my first bmx. I rode it like any other bike not knowing how to do tricks or anything. Then, when I started high school I started seeing bmx riders around and just looked it up and got hooked. How about you guys?

One of my friends had a really shitty bmx, and i liked to ride it. I started to see bmx edit, and i learned how to bunnyhop and nose 180 my mtb. I used to go to a track that has some little jumps in it, and i was there all the time. I bought a bmx when i could, 1 year and 8 months ago, and here i am, with almost a full custom learning full cabs and 360´s.

I was a rollerblader. All my mates rode freestyle.

Following them to the local spots got real tiring, and the constant ribbing I got for being a rollerblader.....well, they built me a bike. an old redline, gyro, 1 piece cranks, non sealed hubs or bottom bracket (those were for people with lots of money back in those days)

18 years later here I am.

Seen someone do a 360 on a dirt jump on tv when I was 12, was blown away, was the first time I'd seen anything like that, got a bmx that Xmas and the following spring i learnt 360s on a flyout dirt jump by my house, been in love ever since, that was 20 years ago.

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.

I've loved riding bikes ever since i can remember. I remember when i was 6 i learned footjams (i didn't know they were called that then) and i did one too fast and landed right on my head. Maybe that's why i'm so weird?

I love my bike but i hate myself

I liked jumping on plastic ramps when I was little. Then I searched on youtube bike tricks. That christmas I asked for a Subrosa and got one.

Many years ago I was at a science expo, they were experimenting with a neogenic recombinator. I was into it (and hard), but little did I know a radioactive bmx bike was creeping around, and during one of the demonstrations using the neogenic recombinator, the bmx bike got caught in the beam! Nobody noticed though, but sure enough, the bike crept up on me and without warning, it scraped the pedals on my shins! It was tragic, I felt ill. I wandered out onto the streets and saw things in a whole new light. Ledges & rails were now playthings, I had a whole new appreciation for the architecture around me. I soon made my own bmx bike & did bmx bike things. The end.

Mutiny 08 web video was a big influence, and I remember hearing random kids talk about bmx as a kid and I know a few neighborhood kids who ride, so it was a combination of those things

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

My dad used to race and got me into racing. I saw some of my friends doing tricks and got interested very fast.
