Take a journey to Japan.
Japan Flatark and Ark League in the land of the rising sun.
First flight of 3 next is over 7200 miles to Korea and 15 hours long. Clocking miles but days in a plane. Properly packed food in my bag, dranks, and entertainment. Gucci on repeat. Been a minute since I traveled so it’s time to pull some old school tricks. But not before dude next to me puked inside his backpack. In and out of sleep coma. Lots of movies. Lot of sitting. Saw on two occasions women going into the men’s room at two different airports. Only happy Japanese. So easy to be in a good mood around happy people. No fat people. Think they have it figured out or just don’t play the USA games? I’m good with all of this as most is out of my hands. By choice. I would not want it all. Who would. Getting deep this morning boys. Takes a few days of interesting perspectives and personalities meshing around in my head to refresh what is around me. I am here a long time and for the good times. You needed me to say this. Bmx is in my life.
Did you know It is shorter to fly the Great Circle route than a straight line due to the circumference of the earth being so much greater at the equator than near the poles. Pretty sure the earth is not flat earth ?.
20k miles flown
40 hours in the air
20 miles walked
20 high balls drank
20/15 vision I see clearly
Great weather, awesome food, amazing riding, and in my book as one solid pleasurable trip. Thank you. -Chad D

InstaVids for this week:
@matuptobat came out to Florida years ago and accidentally on purpose learned this trick. Calls it the “tree frog”. No hands and no feet? Tuck nothing for those without imagination. Captured via #GoPro just outside of downtown Denver at #Barnum @profile_racing @pusher_bmx #decobmx #profileracing #pusherbmx #coloradeco #coast2coast #matknowsdeco #bmx
Boss hoss @chaddegroot repost: Thanks @paddygross for posting this vid from a few years back. Insanely cool words as well…Great time filming for this vid and stepped up my op pegs game on a good rail and more. Hell yes ??#frontbrakebrethren #bmxfreestyle #ugp #missionofnonsense #bmx #flatland #throwback
Boosted flip from @benwallacebmx followed by ol gimpy @matuptobat nursing a bum knee with turndown flip. Guess the kiddos really got them pumped up! Mat has been all over California doing Shows with @bmxprostrickteam and attending #volkswagen meets. From coast to coast making the most @profile_racing @pusher_bmx #bmx #travel #ride #vdublove #shows #coast2coast #matknowsdeco #pusherbmx #profileracing #decobmx
@matuptobat – “Giving it a final hoorah for the month of October! I’m seeing a specialist on the 9th now that I am back in Las Vegas. Here is the final @bmxprostrickteam set up of the month hopefully not the last ride of the year! Had to get a little run after being off the bike for almost a week. I’ll find out about my ACL when the doc reads the images…” @pusher_bmx @profile_racing #decobmx #matknowsdeco #profileracing #pusherbmx #coast2coast #volkswagen #vdublove #matknowsknees #travel #ride
This used to be an everyday occurrence at the #roosterden @matt_coplon is definitely one of the locals, the lines Matt cuts in and out of on this backyard paradise is mind blowing. A little tech, and a ton of fun. I am super grateful to have ridden this ramp. Honored to have crossed paths with its proprietor @alanshirley and of course @bethandbodhi ?? backyard ramps are more than a hobby, or a place to do tricks. It’s a scene, it’s a culture, definitely a place I want to be! -Mat Olson @profile_racing @decobmx #bmx #florida #ramps #decobmx #profileracing #livetoride #ridetolive
