Freestyle videos of Summer 2016

Yes, summer is really over now and the winter is coming. For many of us that sadly means less jamming opportunities but at least we have some, ehm, MANY videos to watch. Summer was full of jamming and fortunately people with cameras were often around. Since you will find a crazy amount of videos below, I decided to categorize them a little and highlight some by embedding them. Others are attached in the form of links but that doesn’t mean they are not worth watching – they really are! Enjoy…

 

 

New York videos

The title of videographer of summer definitely belogs to James Wiseman. He’s been feeding us with a delicious content all summer and he just doesn’t stop. Many of his videos are related to FPA World Championship which took place in New York in August and offered many opportunities for heinous US – Euro jam collabos. See for yourselves…

US Open videos

US Open took place in the beginning of Summer in Santa Cruz as probably the last big frisbee event organized there by legendary Skippy Jammer.
