Recently, while in Oklahoma City hanging out with the Hoffman crew, Mat and Zack sat down for a little interview action. Check out what Zack had to say along with some extra riding footage tossed in for good measure for WeHaveMotive.com.
Hoffman – Mat and Zack Vert Session
Sooo psyched on this. Always good to see Mat Hoffman still killing it. Zack Warden drops some real good riding too!
“Mat was so stoked having another vert rider come and shred his ramp with him. With Mat pretty fresh off of knee surgery and Zack just getting to town, this is the warm up session that set the tone for the whole week Zack was in Oklahoma….
Song: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros-Up From Below
Special thanks to Shaka for making an appearance and chillin with us!”
Hoffman – Mat and Walker – Over / Under
Ha, damn that is what I’d call close enough.
“The day before the KC trip started everyone just got in town and decided to go play at Mat’s house. Walter and Mat decided to hit up a little over/under which came pretty close to going south. But we wouldn’t have it any other way, right.” – Hoffman
Freestyle5 – Episode 6 – Dakota Roche, Mat Hoffman, Casselberry Trails
“Episode 6 is here, the second of 2012. We take a look at the skills and insane hop Dakota Roche has in the recent Cinema Wheels edit. Also, late breaking edits and news that needs atttention. First up is the 40th birthday of The Condor, Mat Hoffman. Thats right kids, 40 years old and still puts all of us in awe. As a thank you for everyone’s birthday wishes Mat posted a short two trick run on youtube. This isn’t to be taken lightly, since those tricks include a 540 tab into a flair. Not your average run. Second is a call to action for some trails that are on the chopping block. We go over a quick edit of Mike Cottle and discuss the impending trouble at Florida’s Casselberry Trails. Just as a quick point the city of Casselberry is sticking the land owners and locals with code violations and hiding behind nonsense environmental accusations as reason to plow the trails. The locals are fighting it and looking for help. So check out the edit, then go to Thefreestyle5.com for more edits and links to a petition and other news about the trails. But for now hit play and enjoy..

Mat Hoffman – 40th Birthday Session
Mat was psyched on how many people wished him a happy birthday that he figured he better film a few clips to show his appreciation. 40 years and still killing it.
Happy Birthday, Mat Hoffman
Today is the legend known as Mat Hoffman‘s 40th birthday. I’m sure a lot of doctors doubted he would still be walking today the way he beat himself up over the years, but he’s still killing it. Awesome!
Happy Birthday, Mat!
Sneak Peek: Ride UK – Issue 158
Ride UK dropped this sneak peek shot of issue 158’s cover. Mat Hoffman roasting the tires on his ramp car with Ben Hennon blasting a superman over it. So badass. Expect all the details of what’s inside this issue next week!
Giveaway: Sidewall & Mat Hoffman Like-A-Thon
Plenty of free goodies to win and they make it so easy…
“For October Sidewall is teaming up with Mat Hoffman for a month long like-a-ton.
Basically you like us we give stuff away. Sounds super simple cause it is. From Oct. 1 – Oct. 31, when you become a fan of Sidewall on Facebook we will put you into 2 drawings to win prizes.
Instead of just giving away stickers, koozies or some 4XL shirt that you’ll never wear, how about put some super elite limited edition goods that you can’t just go out and buy.
HERE’S HOW THIS IS GOING DOWN:
We want to hit 2,500 fans but we are at around 1,700 at the moment.
When we hit 2,000 fans we do the first drawing for a limited edition hardback copy of FREESTYLIN’ Generation F – 1984-1989, signed by Mat Hoffman.
When we hit 2,500 fans we do the second drawing for a limited edition hardback copy of FREESTYLIN’ Generation F – 1984-1989, a copy of The Birth of Big Air and a Hoffman Bikes 2012 poster all signed by Mat Hoffman.
DETAILS ON THE GOODS:
FREESTYLIN’ Generation F is basically the history and guide to the BMX Godfathers that built and molded the sport of BMX Freestyle, so yes it is filled with people that are most likely much older than you are and certainly unique individuals.
The Birth of Big Air is a film about Mat Hoffman‘s career and how he pushed beyond the limits of BMX in pursuit of the future of the sport. Directed by Jeff Tremaine and produced by Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze.
Hoffman Bikes 2012 poster shows an old school big air photo that is also on the front and the complete Hoffman Bikes 2012 product line on the back.
With all that said, go out to the Sidewall Facebook page and like us.” – Sidewall
