old mat hoffman videos
A few days ago I saw an old video of Jay Miron on feeble that launched me into the depths of youtube. As it turns out, there are tons of rad old Hoffman videos floating around. It’s interesting watching the guy in his prime, before some of the surgeries and major injuries. I always thought he ripped the hardest towards the end, probably peaking in his Props 50 bio, but it’s just not that easy to define a peak for that guy. For years, he literally defined what was going on in bmx. There were other dudes pushing things for sure, but (to put it in today’s terms) he was the Garret Reynolds of everything but flatland for at least ten years. There’s a bunch of stuff below, including early Haro demos, the first flair, and the worlds from 15 years ago.
