Wall to Wall Presents: The Birth of the Freestyle Movement

7:00pm - 10:00pm Skate/BMX

In the summer of '16, Dominic Phipps and Xavier Mendez launched their “Wall to Wall” BMX Freestyle history project. Those following the W2W social media pages will already know that the centre piece of the effort is a 240-page, hardcover history-book, titled, “The Birth of the Freestyle Movement”.

The project explores the origins and iconic early culture of the developing freestyle scene through the late 1970s and 80s., interviewing an impressive cross section of ex pro-riders, journalists, industry pioneers, photographers, contest promoters, and start-up entrepreneurs, to gather the content. The result is a philosophical and often intimate account of an era that saw BMX Freestyle become a global youth phenomenon.

On August 18th we are celebrating the release of Wall to Wall: The Birth Of The Freestyle BMX Movement with a celebration of freestyle history packed with plenty of contributors, riders and fans! 

Special Guests: RON WILKERSON / BOB MORALES / BOB HARO / MIKE DOMINGUEZ / DAVE VOELKER / JOE JOHNSON / MIKE BUFF / RICH SIGUR / MAT HOFFMAN / DENNIS McCOY / BRIAN BLYTHER / CRAIG CAMPBELL / KEVIN MARTIN / SCOTT FREEMAN
