Hey, there was this topic before about stupid trick names and I asked if there was like a rodney mullen or a tony alva who began making bmx a more freestyle sport. I've searched the web but couldn't find anything. After all, the one who started and discovered new tricks should deserve some credit.

Riding bikes in skateparks and other terrain dates back to the mid seventies. Freestyle truly took off in the early 80's, and much can be attributed to Bob Haro, his friend John Swanguen and other riders of the BMX Action trick team R.L. Osborn and Mike Buff and a few others.

The early 80's innovators - Bob Haro, Pat Romano, Eddie Fiola, Bob Morales, Mike Buff, R.L. Osborn, Ron Wilton.




Bob Haro and Bob Morales circa 1983




Bob Haro and R.L. Osborn circa 1984




Later came Ron Wilkerson (2 hip), Matt Hoffman, Dave Vanderspeck (curb dogs), and a whole bunch of great riders. A WHOLE bunch.


Check out Scott Freeman and Matt Hoffman in 1988 -




Do a google search for any of the riders listed above and you'll find a ton of information.

There's some cool stuff here on the moralesbikes.com website that I built for Bob Morales (note - NOT Robbie Morales of Fit) - http://www.moralesbikes.com/history.htm

Here's some cool ads and stuff on the website I did for Skywaywheels - http://www.skywaywheels.com/2002/flashback.htm
