Ted Emmer: a 24″ freestyle pioneer

Think freestyle riding on a 24″ BMX bike is a new phenomenon?

Think again.

Ted Emmer was rocking a 24″ at the Del Mar skatepark back in 1984!

He even managed to score some coverage in the first edition of Freestylin’ magazine. (Check out the wheels…custom 71 spoke Z-rims!)

Here’s classic video from the King of the SkateParks Del Mar Contest:

(Stoked that Ed Koenning had this video and was able to post it.)

This guy is awesome! I watched some video of him riding last year. His bike was so sick looking.
