Almost a time portal into the eighties where BMX was all about flatland, poses, and showmanship, the striving BMX scene in Ghana, Africa, is completely inspiring as you know that it’s an unfiltered, self-less version of what we do everyday. John Andrus is kind enough to show us a glimpse of what it’s like…

“Every year I go to a different country in Africa to do bike shows with Christian missions groups. This year during my trip to Ghana I was caught off guard when about 25 serious bike riders showed up to the show. They were the raddest dudes that went by names like “Black Fire” and “Computer Man.” I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to pull out my camera and capture their 80’s dance style flatland shredding!” -John Andrus
