contest of BFWC. But someday this circuit would develop much bigger, then we might have sort of license system for Pro as ASP world tour, surfing.
What's the most important part of having an organization like the BFWC?
Yasu: I think there are 2 important factors. First, riders are motivated to have a purpose to aim for. For example, KOG has contributed to the Japanese scene so much on the way to provide opportunities for riders meeting and pushing each other. So BFWC will affect to the scenes all over the world on the same way. Second, Flatland has been treated minority in the Professional contest scene except a few cases, like Circle of Balance, Berlin City games and a couple of Flatground. Each contest was definitely high quality and represented Flatland properly, but what if those contests are all linked by world ranking and open for anybody? It can create a new value for Flatland riders in many ways and give an image to General public all over the world that Flatland is officially authorized as well. Actually ,it might take time to have general public recognize what is Flatland and it really deserves, BFWC is definitely the first step of the process.
Who are running the BFWC?
Yasu: Scott O'brien is a director, and I'm taking care of website.
Any big plans for 2009?
Yasu: Not much news yet, but we try to improve year by year and may have more contests in the circuit next year.
