You know what I like about all these FAT-'zines? it gives me a nice timeline of things that happened years ago. I couldn't really remember when we started putting on the extra FAT-JAM to start off the season. Now I know. 22 April 1990. This means we've done a "Mini-FAT-JAM" for 30 years now. It was dubbed Mini-FAT-JAM as it was a smaller version of the actual FAT-JAM. Mario Schepers seriously messed up his ankle by going Sky Hi after being towed by a moped to get some extra speed.
It was nuts and the pictures show it. We still talk about it every time we hang out at OJA and the pics help remember. What else did we have in this issue?
6 airs by Mat Hoffman on that Coca Cola quarterpipe in Bercy and boy did he go high.
Frans Swinkels got an interview, and we made a photo trip around the world starting in the USA and ending in France.
We went to Nantes, France for a contest, and the Pingel-Maier duo took care of the Tropica Contest #2. The poster was a fold out promotional piece to wear a helmet. Zonder Helm, Kop Kapot. Some Germans still remember that one as their favorite Dutch.
Lee Reynolds and Dirtbro Jimmy Arrington have an interview, Matt Pingel took care of some pages,
The Jimmy Rushmore signature United grips are made from soft krayton rubber with a pattern that is as much function as fashion. With small raised dimples to provide extra grip, cut lines that enable it to be run flangeless and a slim overall diameter which is just what Jimmy ordered. Coming in Black, and new for this year now available in Dark Green and Dark Brown! -Soft compound -153mm long -27mm diameter
The Bondi was one of our first products back when we launched in 2008. At the time we felt the need for a rim much stronger than anything else on the market, to cope with the rate at which street riding was progressing. After 10 years of holding Sean Burns and the rest of the team’s wheels steady, the mighty Bondi rim has been revamped.
We all got legless as on the weekend to celebrate Rhysty's 46th birthday. Legless line at the trails is a fun one, that's for sure. Made even more fun with some laps for the birthday trail boss. Shout out to the homies who dig at the trails.
We've got more from the excellent Program DVD today, and this time it's none other than BSD's pegless tech overlord, Noah Huntzinger. Noah's ambidextrous abilities are pretty wild and he handles setups with an effortless style. A must-see for sure.
