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…
>> First arrivals from Europe before the tournament started – Mördi Hosseinian and Jakub Koštel playing inside the legendary Bandshell.
>> Two proper legends of our sport jamming on a legendary spot. What else you want? Oh, more? So just scroll down for part 2 ;).
>> NY Jammers are used to jam in Central Park but they don’t have to go far for a proper beach jam.
Another hero of the summer is Jake Gauthier who, together with his team, not only live streamed the event but also uploaded EVERY SINGLE routine of the tournament and you can watch them all on the FPAW results page.
Spread the Jam Project
STJP always deserves it’s own category. This time it features Pipo Lopez who is showing his best at Jacksonville beach…
James’s Study tapes
And more from James the Incredible. This time his study tapes where he shows his mastery. Simply the best what you can see in contemporary freestyle disc play.
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. Awsome overall event with almost hundered disc athletes participating. Besides results you can check really interesting interviews with three following significant freestylers and watch the winning routine…
>> Interview with Amy Shiller
Another busy freestyle producer is Ayal Benin (also the tournament director of The first Jam Canaria). This time he released many awsome jam videos from his visit in Karlsruhe.
>> Jamories #10 – Summer time @ Karlsruhe
>> Jamories #11 – World Gitis Day @ Karlsruhe – part 4
Ayal’s videos took us from USA to Europe so let’s stay there for a while 🙂

Here are some “uncategorized” videos from around the world.

>> Jan Sörensen showing his disc-twirling skills on the World’s biggest dam in China.
Some new freestyle related Youtube channels have emerged during this summer. They are definitely worth following.
