Eretic Snowscoot, end of 2017





This just looks so damn fun. Every new snow scoot video that comes out makes it look more and more appealing. Definitely need to cop one. Also, these dudes killed it.

Boris Germain : FLAVOR 2017





Boris is nuts. Not only can he send it in the streets, but as you can see by the first clip, he can throw down in the park. Definitely got me saying "whaat" out loud a few times. Press that play button!

Kevin Austin | Welcome to River





Get hyped for this one dudes. Kevin is killing it harder than ever, and he is well deserving of his spot on River. I can't even call out a highlight because every clip was a highlight. Press play and watch a time or three.




Tilt Transport





Being a part of Tilt, there's a lot that went on behind the scenes making this video that makes it pretty incredible seeing what it turned out to be. To spare the details, this video features full parts from Jon Archer, Christian Dean, and Dylan Kasson, with shared parts between myself and Jona Humbel, Issac Miller and Tom Kvilhaug, and Patrick Nguyen with Tyler Wheeland. On behalf of all the guys, we hope you enjoy.

PARRISH ISAACS





Another edit from the lens of Richard Harck, this one of Proto's own Parrish Isaacs. Parrish is a footy machine, able to get multiple clips per spot seemingly with ease. Consider this a sampling of his part in the upcoming Proto full length "REINCARNATION."

Baytage #5





The Concrete boys are at it again, this time dropping installment number five of the Baytage series. Featuring the main crew as well as some friends, but I gotta say Grant Schofield killed it in this one. Anton also kills it on those hill bomb shots, I have no idea how you can go that fast one handed.

Kevin Austin | Welcome to River Wheel Co Teaser





Man, I feel thoroughly teased. This video drops tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled, its gonna be good.

Lachlan Gauchier Love and Happiness | Transit Deck Promo





Legauch has a sig deck courtesy of North Scooters, and this is his promo for it. You already know what's coming- 50s, hefty rails, and the style to boot. They should release a sig vest for him too.

Root Industries | Singapore





A few of the Aussie Root boys headed out to Singapore to ride with local Root rider Shafiq and this is what they were able to come up with. Sadly they ended up getting hurt partway into the trip, but still walked away with some fresh clips. Flair handplant was super sick, didn't expect that at all.

TIME FRAME





Damn, first potassium, now TIME FRAME? The Minnesota boys are really out here. TIME FRAME is Erik Karl's latest and greatest production. I just wanna take a moment to say the Elliot Smith track was perfect. When it turns up and the dude does that roof clip...I really felt that. Erik's filming and editing is really becoming refined now, and the artwork clips he included were great. Always experimenting, love it.

potassium





Brought to you by Volare and Sky High, potassium is a full length film by Dakota Knight. Featuring a slew of riders from Minnesota as well as others from around the Midwest, potassium might just be one of the best independent films of the year. Dakota's filming and editing style is one of the more unique styles out there today. The riding is also varied and enjoyable throughout. With a bunch of names, some recognizable and some not, it's always a treat to see what these guys are gonna throw down.



Featuring: Benny Christensen, Jacody Besl, Liam Green, Cole Larson, Max Lemonds, Maxwell Reinbold, Dakota Knight, Sean OGrady, Noah Rogney, Erik Olsen, Jamin Larson, Jackson Harrington, Andrew Steinke, Landon Dallmann. 

Tilt Up North





Last month, Tilt boys/homies Dylan Kasson, Christian Dean, Devin (Shorty) Heald, Joe Vos, and Richard Harck decided to take an impromptu trip around northern Michigan to take advantage of the last remaining days of rideable weather. They met up with more homies, shredded the hell out of a ton of parks, and filmed nonstop. Richard Harck, hottest filmer of 2k17, was there to capture it all, and produced this awesome edit.

Urban Confrontation





If you've never seen an Alchemyst video before, you're missing out. Alchemyst is a loose crew with a creative view on scootering and documenting scootering. One of the main guys behind it, Juraj Klas, was recently interviewed by Dylan Kasson for his Tandem Podcast, which you can listen to here. Urban Confrontation is the next piece of the Alchemyst saga, blending night riding into daytime montages into VHS into Super 8, with a base coat of VX. Watch and enjoy.

Reece Doezema | Welcome to River Wheel Co





Reeceybaby is just the best scooter rider. That's all there is to it. They didn't even invite him to SoS because they knew he would just win. Like who does a front board 270 off a roof? Who would touch half the rails in this video? Who's about to full cab back lip an 8 stair? I'm so psyched to see River pick him up.

Sovereign of Street 2017 - Presented by Tilt





A few weeks ago, The Vault came together with title sponsor Tilt to put on the Sovereign of Street competition. This invite only street comp brought together 25 of the world's best riders to duke it out for the title of King of the Streets. Everyone threw down, but who took home first? Watch to find out.

Content Cop - Scooter Brad





First of all, if you're not familiar with the Youtuber IDubbbzTV, I'd suggest you go subscribe and check out his Content Cop series, which is the inspiration for the video above. IDubbbz is one of my fav Youtubers and I'm always gonna plug him. Anyways, for reasons unknown to me, Scooter Brad still has such a large following despite being terrible. This video, by Full Ride, details many of the reasons why the dude does not deserve to be a "figurehead" in scootering. This is a full on video essay complete with a diss track at the end, which was honestly better than I was expecting. Props to these guys for taking the time to thoroughly research and present their arguments in a logical way.

Hep Greg: Mini Vid 666.





A three year long filming process for Hep Greg has given us this video, aptly named Mini Vid 666, dropping yesterday (Halloween). There are a couple Brooklyn Banks clips in here and it just feels so right to see him riding there again, after being closed for years. Always such a treat to see this guy ride.

Matt Ogle | Shred & Wed





Is it cheesy to film reenactments of moments throughout your relationship and put them in a scooter video? When you're a dude like Matt Ogle, the answer is no. Sometimes when dudes get a girl they pretty much stop riding, but Matt is proof that you don't have to slow down, you can even keep progressing. I remember back in the Inward days when Matt and Jennifer first became a thing, and it's beautiful and inspiring to see them tie the knot after all these years.

Also there is a ton of great riding in here, Matt never fails to surprise me. I'm not saying he did an impossible off a ledge into a bank, but I'm not saying he didn't either.

badgerclit | Welcome To Elite





50 god Badgerclit aka Ryan Ruegg has done it again, this time with a video welcoming him to Elite. I keep thinking about how far scootering has come with the 5050 game and this dude is one of the ones pushing it to the limits. 50 hop over 270 downside into the bank was so perfect. Juiced for him to be on Elite, hope they can support him like he deserves.

CHI





Chicago. A city of diversity, a global leader in both business and the arts, a metropolitan oasis smack dab in the otherwise void croplands of the Midwest. Chicago provides many opportunities to those who gather there- education, entertainment, dining, employment. But for those among us searching for the perfect rail, a fresh feeble, the next puzzle to unlock using the act of manually balancing on one wheel as the key, Chicago is the ultimate urban playground.



Richard Harck, hailing just a stone's throw away from the city, has documented over the past year those whom make the pilgrimage to the Windy City. Culminating in this 20 minute montage, Richard has filmed those both coming from near and far, riders known and unknown, to show the world what scootering in Chicago is really like. Locals like Chis Doyle, Sugar Shane the Rapper, Justin Lacosse, and visitors like Issac Miller and Ian Herncjar, with numerous others can be seen here putting their mark on the city, their interpretation of what the streets hold smartly caught through the lens of a Panasonic DVX100, recorded to a miniature digital video tape, captured, edited, and uploaded to Youtube.com for your viewing pleasure. Richard's own vision shines bright throughout- his filming techniques and concepts for clips are not easy to miss. It's not often a filmer puts much thought into what he is producing, but when they do, you can tell.
