On this episode I talk with bmx legend and icon Mr. Mat Hoffman. Mat has accomplished so much in his life, through BMX, contest series, touring, demos and shows, to running his own business and inventing more BMX tricks on a vert ramp than anyone else ever has. He has inspired so many people to never give up, and when Mat sets out on a idea or dream he brings it life, and he's known to go big. On this episode we talk about how he got into riding as a kid, how he came up with the mega ramp, the BS contest series from the 90's, some tour stories and running his bike company Hoffman Bikes on his own. Also we talk about another passion he has, which is his artwork and paintings, and how he got involved and interested in that. Listen to his stories now of how he lives a healthy PMA (positive mental attitude) lifestyle and his approach on continually accomplishing his dreams. Stay Rad.
