This week I am going to let you scroll down and see what happened this week on every avenue DECO related. DECOrations, FloriDECO, ColoraDECO, and so on and on...have a great weekenDECO. I crack myself up. SupporeteDECO. -Chad DWith the scene in Orlando being huge specially for Flatland, Bob Walters organized a Ground Hoggers flatland jam with kids invited also. Huge turn out from the locals and all over. Real easy to have a good time when the surface is top notch, weather is prime, and being outside this time of year is always great. My son Cooper has been on his bike since he was three, not really wanting to learn any tricks till today. So it started with me helping him on his first combo with him pedaling fast and me pulling up into a peg wheelie. Smiles for miles. Great crew, fun day, Florida winters are the best. -Chad D First pic by Kip Williamson Group shot pic by remote pressed by Cooper DeGroot
Mat Olson doing it for Deco Bmx. We filmed this over the past few months in the Denton/ Ft Worth area. Mat got injured on the last clip. He ended up having to have surgery done on his hand, and was out for a few months. It's always a good time riding and hanging with this dude.Film and edited by- Alex Hammett Music- Elder- Gemini Mat Olson for Deco Bmx from alex hammett on Vimeo. Mat Olson headed out for a night session to meet up with a couple of his good friends Alex Hammet and Cameron Muilenberg. With some showers coming through periodically their session looked to be cut short. They caught a break from the drizzle and got to fire a few things out. Over tooth shot by @cameronasa

Moment of ZENRiding in a public parking lot has its hazards like moving cars. Most drivers will look ahead and see you there but there are a ton who don’t care or are on the phone. I have had only a few close calls until today…was my closest yet. Always knowing what is going on around you and keeping my eyes peeled is normal. While in this trick I wanted to jump out of the rope-a-roni to the front pegs. Even without a full commitment I still landed on my front peg but take a close look at the front wheel. Skidded going backwards and a handful of my front brakes and shifting my weight and momentum was going to avoid getting clipped. I swear if I just kept rolling out of this my back wheel, or worse, would been taco’d. Guess that is the reason for my facial emotions after the car passed. #decobmx @chaddegroot @profileracing #pbte –Chad DeGroot A video posted by @decobmx on
