Joining Hubbable in Boston and the thousands of freerunners in attendance is an experience we are looking forward to. This is what the Off the Edge tour is all about — community, friendship and passion for parkour and freerunning.

2013 Red Bull Art of Motion Champion, Cory DeMeyers and #1 ranked Youtube video blogger, Jesse La Flair, will make their sixth stop on Sunday April 12th in Boston, Massachusetts joining the Hubbable 2-day long Project Freerun event in progress as part of their 15-city North American “Off The Edge” Tour. Conceived to promote their passion for parkour and freerunning, and showcase their Kickstarter funded documentary “From Here to There”, the duo will be joined by some of the top parkour athletes in the world including multiple Red Bull Art of Motion Champion Jason Paul from Germany, Team Farang founder Anan Anwar from Thailand and Instagram star and extreme freerunner Pasha “The Boss” from Latvia.

“This project has been a labor of love for both Cory and I,” explains La Flair. “We have put our entire lives into this. But this is something we both wanted to do. We wanted to share our passion for what we truly believe is the most amazing, creative and liberating sport in the world. We wanted to meet traceurs and freerunners throughout the US who share our spirit. Joining Hubbable in Boston and the thousands of freerunners in attendance is an experience we are looking forward to. This is what the Off the Edge tour is all about — community, friendship and passion for parkour and freerunning.”

Jesse and Cory are both members of pioneering American parkour and freerunning team, Tempest, based in Los Angeles, California. Tempest was one of the first groups to open gyms in the United States, recognizing early on the potential for growth of the discipline. La Flair and DeMeyers are just the latest Youtube sensations from the team which spawned a successful business and careers for its members in the Hollywood film industry.

“Our tour’s goal is not only to spread awareness about parkour and freerunning to a new generation, but to also make businesses aware that we are more than a viable vehicle for their message,” explain DeMeyers. “It is crazy to think that parkour and freerunning are some of the most viewed videos on social media, and have been for years, much more than any other sports. Even events and athletes that bring significant crowds struggle to find sponsors. We want to change this attitude.”

The “Off the Edge” Tour bus will arrive in Boston on Sunday April 12th, 2015. The day will begin with the screening of the documentary “From Here to There”, following La Flair and DeMeyer’s European adventures leading to their podium victory at the 2013 Red Bull Art of Motion in Santorini Greece. The entrance ticket is $15, and the show starts at 10AM. The screening will be held at AMC Loews Boston Common 19 movie theater (AMC 175 Tremont St, Boston, 02111). Following the movie, the OTE Tour bus with La Flair, DeMeyers and all the athletes will head down to the Chinatown School to join the Hubbable Day 2 Jam festivities from 12pm to 5pm (885 Washington St. Boston, MA 02118). Admission to the jam is open to the public and the entrance fee will be $15 paid at the door.
