Today I’m happy to present our first ever flatland Instagram Slam featuring 2 of the best in the game, Terry Adams and Matthias Dandois. Even if you don’t know shit about flatland, you should still watch this, it’s awesome. Follow @terryadamsbmx and @matthiasdandois on Instagram.
For Instagram Slam 21 we got Broc Raiford (who just won The Bakery contest and is overall just killing it lately) and his homie Josh Clemens (who you might remember from his really good TCU Exclusive) out to P Rod park for some action. The kids called in some tricks and the boys fired them out. Guest appearances by Alfredo and yours truly. Follow TCU on Instagram so you can send in some requests of your own and follow Broc, Josh, Alfredo and I for hot dick pics.
If you missed it, here’s last week’s episode with Rob Diquattro and Arik Elstran:
When Rob Diquattro hit me up about doing an Instagram Slam, my eyes lit up. Rob consistently makes some of the funniest web videos in BMX and this one follows suit. There are a lot of tricks in here that I definitely didn’t think were possible. Shout out to Rob, Arik, Robbie Digital, Clay Johnson and anyone else who got involved!
Also if you missed it, peep last week’s Instagram Slam with the Primo/Stranger/Lotek squad:
Instagram Slam 18 went down with Nate Richter on the #HAZYINAZ trip they are on right now. Our loyal followers suggested tricks for all the guys and they got ’em done. Follow us so you don’t miss out on the next one!
Featuring Jackson Ratima, Jourdan Barbra, Raul Ruiz, Glen Girbovan and Robbie Owen
For Instagram Slam 17 we had some of the finalists from The Hunt 2013 meet up and do some tricks for The Come Up’s Instagram followers. Dan Norvell, Chijioke Okafo, Sam Bussell, Mike Gray and a bunch of other riders (I don’t know their names because Nate Richter pretty much as a rule doesn’t tell me the names of any of the people in any of his videos, ever) do some tricks at Cherry Park in Long Beach. In case you missed it here are the results from the premiere last night:
For the 16th Instagram Slam the BSD team, consisting of Kriss Kyle, Tony Malouf, David Grant, Dan Paley and Joey Motta, got festive with Dave Sowerby at an Arizona skatepark. Stoked that Motta did my request! Thanks a ton to the guys for doing this. Instagram roll call:
For our 15th Instagram Slam, we recruited @BizJordan, @JasonEnns and @MikeEscamilla, knowing they’d come back with a good one. This is the perfect mix of talkin’ shit, dusting off some old tricks and doing some things they wouldn’t normally do. Awesome to see Rooftop still flexing that front brake, Biz bringing back the half bar and some vintage mini ramp Enns making an appearance!
For Instagram Slam 13 we hit the 2013 Dew Tour BMX dirt finals and got a bunch of insanity done for our loyal Instagram followers. Luke Parslow, Ryan Nyquist, Chris Doyle, Kevin Peraza, Daniel Sandoval, Corey Bohan, Colton Satterfield, Dennis Enarson, TJ Ellis and many more all shut it down. Make sure to follow @thecomeupbmx for more Instagram Slams!
Scott Marceau is definitely has some of the funniest TCU video descriptions of any editor in the history of the site. So it only makes sense that his first Instagram Slam would be the strangest one so far. Watch as Craig Passero, Grant Germain, Blackman and Russ Barone do some tricks for their loyal fans at the Downtown Manhattan skatepark.
For Instagram Slam 11 we had the Boqer123 crew put some moves down for TCU’s Instagram followers at a small skatepark in Ferndal. Josh James, Clem Hencher-Stevens, Mick Woods, Steve Saunders and Elliott Staton all put moves down. Make sure to SUBSCRIBE TO THEIR CHANNEL ( http://www.youtube.com/boqer123 ) and hit up all their social media links:
We finally hit double digits. For Instagram Slam 10, Nate Richter went up to Riverside, California and got Dylan Stark, Matt Closson, Jourdan Barba, Dan Norvell and Larry Alvarado to fire out some tricks at the skatepark. This is a good one. Follow all those links as well as the Downstagram Instagram and the TCU Instagram to stay up on the next Instagram Slam.
For Instagram Slam 9, our good friends Creasemeister and Will Stroud got Dakota Roche, Nathan Williams and Dan Lacey to fire some bangers out at the Copenhagen skatepark in Denmark on the Cinema/Monster #downthemiddle tour. You will no doubt be amazed at how easily these guys are able to fire out the techest stuff imaginable. Thanks so much to the riders, Creasey and Will for gettin this done for us, it’s honestly a huge honor and we can’t thank you guys enough!
Chris Courtenay is a pro BMX rider from Brisbane, Australia. For Instagram Slam #8 Nate Richter met up with him at the Vans skatepark in Southern California and then all of our Instagram followers requested tricks for the man himself. The last trick is so sick.
We usually drop an Instagram Slam weekly on every Friday but we ended up with 2 this week. So enjoy this one and look out for a new one from Dan Lacey, Nathan Williams and Dakota Roche dropping tomorrow.
This is a little late, but I’m determined to keep the Instagram Slams coming every Friday. For Instagram Slam #7 Nate Richter met up with Morgan Long and Raul Ruiz at the Houghton skatepark in Long Beach. We posted a photo on Instagram and all of our friends and fans named off tricks for the guys to do. Morgan and Raul came through with some help from John Hicks and Josh Delcour. Make sure to follow @thecomeupbmx so you don’t miss the next Instagram Slam, every Friday on the TCU Youtube.
For the sixth installment of Instagram Slam we got Gabe Brooks and Sean Morr to fire out some tricks at a skatepark in LA. Catfish read the comments off of the TCU Instagram and the guys got them done. Kelly Bolton showed up. Catfish did some tricks of his own. Everyone had a good time and thankfully Gabe restrained himself and didn’t beat the crap out of Catfish.
Filmed and edited by John Hicks.
And just because I like it, here’s last week’s Instagram Slam with the Merritt team and Mark Burnett:
For Instagram Slam 5, I caught up with the Merritt BMX team and a few friends at the Pittsfield skatepark in Massachusetts. Brandon Begin, Justin Care, Charlie Crumlish, Peter Sawyer and team owner Mike Brennan were there plus locals Jake Seeley and Mark Burnett. Everyone read off comments from the TCU Instagram and banged out a bunch of tricks that the fans requested. At the end, Mike Brennan goes back to his roots and fires out two ridiculous tailwhip variations that he hasn’t done in years. Enjoy and check out all the other Instagram Slam videos:
For the 4th installment of the Instagram Slam series, our dude Frenchie got together with TCU team rider Brock Olive and some friends at the Beerwah skatepark in Queensland, Australia. Big shoutout to Brock, Nick, Frenchie and everyone who sent in comments, this turned out awesome.
