Aruguably one of the best freecoaster riders in the game (the best in my opinion), and one of the most determined riders ever. At a skatepark in charlotte i saw him working on the same trick for about 45 minutes until he finally got it and just today i was watching an episode of props with him in it where he was trying a huge icepick to 180 on a ledge at a skatepark in texas for like 3 hours.

Karl's a ridiculously busy guy between riding and running his bmx shop (hardcore sportz) which you can visit their online shop HERE. So he told me, he'll do his best to answer questions at least once a week or so.

Heres a couple of his favorite clips he sent for me to post up...

Haha, he always seems like he's high, but I'm sure he's not, he looks clean. Like a babies pubic area.

what inspired you to innovate the way people do sliders and how its not acceptable to pivot out of a fakie without a "skirt" or "slider"

KARL MOTHER FUCKIN POYNTER!!!!!!! Ask the guys on this Forum, I am your number one fan! And you were the number one reason in me getting my freecoaster (bet I can out tireslide you! *Sarcasam*). Because I love you so much, I am gonna murder you with questions.

Whats the trick to a slider? I can do them for 30 feet tops, and yours seem like you can do them until your tire falls off.

Why a freecoaster? Why not just a casette?

What made you leave Sunday?

Would you love me if I told you that I loved you?

First off, your riding is fantastic, it seems as though you can do anything you want and more with a bike.

So my question(s) is(are):

Did you ever ride any flatland, and how did you get your super-tuned sense of balance?

What keeps you from falling into the groove that so many other street riders are in, with barspins, lots of the same kinds of grinds, and similar styles?

Is the Shadow freecoaster going to be released soon or? (I am in the market for a new rear hub and am curious)

Karl Poynter,

First off I want to applaud your unique style on a freecoaster. Your kill it wherever you go, and your commitment to your riding and finally landing that trick is awesome (QBP roadtrip, the ice to 180).

Now for my question:
Do you use pedal pressure to do half, full, and 5 cabs? and also on manual to 180s?

thanks,
keep shredding dude!

pretty sure he was born like that...

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Hey Karl, you're one of my favourite riders to watch and your edits and parts always get my pumped to ride.


Who are Top 5 Riders of all time and what would you say are the best videos/parts/edits to come out in the last 5 years?


Thanks

first i want to say you are the reason i started riding a freecoaster. i watched your part in the shook video and i fell in love with freecoasters since then.
now my questions
what got you into freecoasters?

you basically only do spins, grinds, and manuals. why dont you do other tricks like tucks or something? can you do them and just dont show us, or do you not like them for some reason?

how long have you been riding a freecoaster and, aside from your shadow freecoaster, whats the best freecoaster you have ever rode?

how long did it take you to get sliders and good and long as you have them?

how does it feel being a co-owner of a sports shop AND to ride as a pro bmx-er?


thats it for now. ill be back with some more questions some other time
