Hella Good Stuff Teaser





Hella Good Stuff is a video collaboration between the Bay's two biggest crews, Bay Area Concrete and Hella Grip.  Releasing later this year, it'll feature parts from all of the heavy hitters out there- Kevin Closson, Jake Sorenson, David Coe, etc.  Can't wait to see how it turns out.

A Day at D-Block » Ryan Upchurch Edit │ The Vault Pro Scooters





Ryan spent a few hours at his local indoor filming this edit for The Vault.  All the fakie ice combos were tight.  Love that he threw a 9 just cause he can too haha.  Use his code "TheChurch" for that 11% off at The Vault.

Sky High Presents: Will Weske





Will Weske is yet another street boss coming out of the Midwest.  He's been getting so good over the past couple years, so Sky High decided to add him to their team.  Some hefty rails, a bit of creativity (deck check 180 bump to bar!), and fast maturing style adds up to a great video.

Ethan Kirk | Welcome to Crisp





Ethan may only be on Crisp's flow team but this kid shreds.  Full of rad unseen Canadian spots, this guy is killing the streets with a dope style.  That wallride hip spot looks so fun.  Definitely psyched to see more out of Ethan in the future.

PROTO Intermission | David Coe





Intermission is Proto's flow team video, and the first parts goes to Bay Area Concrete heavy hitter David Coe.  This dude is not afraid to hit any rail you put in front of him.  Staircount on the rails in this video probably outnumbers any scooter video ever.  Great job all around to everyone involved, can't wait to see the next Intermission part.

PARADISE





Sunny San Diego is a paradise, and Bryan Hillman and friends show that off in this video.  Featuring a ton of names from the SD area, this is a really sweet little HVX montage filmed by Bryan.  Just makes you wanna go scoot with the bros.

FARM FRESH





Some of the SD locals went out to go filming, the spot ended up being a bust, so they hit up Scooter Farm to ride their ramps.  This is what happened, as seen through the lens of Bryan Hillman.  Zack Martin killing it as always and Josh Young even makes an appearance.

FRIENDLY'S LUX - ROYCE KING





Royce King came through with one of my favorite LUX parts.  I've always been a fan of the dude, watching him over the years flying around Australia's parks, and this video proved he could do in in the streets as well.  High speed, creativity, those shorts, Royce kills it.

Jon Reyes | 2015





Jon has been working on a street edit for a minute now and it has finally been released.  I was really looking forward to this one since it's been about 4 flat edits since we've seen a street video from him.  More than just his flat tricks taken to small manual pads, this video has some creative uses of spots as well as some solid lines.  There's also some really good timelapses, Ryan Gould did a great job with the editing.

Scooters @ Fise 2015





The third year of FISE went down recently and was documented by Luca Thiebault for Fasen.  FISE attracts some of the world's best riders so you know there are some real heavy hitters in this one.  Tons of b-roll really give you a feel of what it was like there.

Phoenix Pro Scooters | Wilson Thomas





Wilson Thomas is the first Australian to be added to Phoenix's amateur team.  At 16 years old, he shows his current skill and future potential with this video.  That grab at 1:30 was so tight.  It's sick to see more and more younger dudes out of Australia start to kill it on the streets.

David Coe | The T Bar Guillotine





Clipper hubba is one of the most iconic spots in skateboarding and has had its fair share of memorable moments in scootering.  As the spot was set to be taken out, Bay Area rider David Coe knew he had to get there quick to lay down the hammer before it was gone.  However, the spot fought back, and he wound up with a bent deck and disappointment.  David and the rest of the Concrete Crew are filming for their new full-length "Hella Good Stuff," be on the lookout for that soon.

FRIENDLY'S LUX - LUKE MAFFESONI





Luke came through with one of the best sections of LUX.  You don't hear or see too much from this dude, but that doesn't mean he isn't actively going out and killing it, as this video proves.  One of the most unique trick selections (while avoiding common gimmicks) on a variety of unique spots makes for one of the most entertaining scooter videos of recent memory.  Luke kills it.

Raymond Warner || Welcome To Envy





Raymond has been on Envy for a minute now.  It's crazy how diverse Envy's team is- street killers like Jessee Ikedah, flat wizard Jon Reyes, and park/megaramp master Raymond Warner.  Ray's welcome edit features what we've come to expect from him- huge airs, ridiculous tricks, and big ramps.  I truly admire his work ethic- the dude knows what he wants to do and does everything necessary to accomplish his goals.  Not only that, but he's a great dude all around, so he deserves everything he gets out of scootering.

ENZO COMMEAU SIGNATURE DECK OUT NOW!





Enzo got the first signature shoe in scootering, not with good reason, so it makes sense for him to get a signature deck through AO now too.  Whether it's box jumps at Woodward, or the iconic Wallenburg, Enzo can shred it all.  Enzo hits some serious spots in this, he is such a nut.

Issac Miller Thrash Resistant





Last summer the Tilt crew was in Grand Rapids, Michigan, filming for Tilt 2.  Issac ended up battling this rail for three and a half hours, but wasn't able to go the distance.  However, he did put his Sentry bars to a beating no scooter component should ever be subject to.  By the end of it, they were still in pristine, unbent condition.  The footage really speaks for itself.  In this video, Issac takes us through his thoughts during the attempts.

Brian Chavez for Satori





Brian Chavez is one of the best kept secrets in the Midwest.  Hailing from Lake Geneva, over the past year he earned himself a spot on The Satori as well as Sky High.  With a style reminiscent of Jona Humbel, Chav keeps it simple but gnarly.  I'm super psyched on him and can't wait to see what he does in the future.

Phoenix Pro Scooters in Russia





Roomet Saalik, Kassu Palen and Dan Barrett took a trip St. Petersburg and Moscow to ride at a few events.  These dudes all kill it in their own way and it's sick to see the scene in Russia thriving.  Totally called the last trick, and was psyched Dan did it.

Sky High Davenport Takeover Video





I posted an article about the Sky High Davenport Takeover last week, and now here's the video.  Justin Lacosse, Devin Heald, Brian Chavez, and the rest of the dudes shred the park and a bunch of fans get in on the action too.  This was super fun and I hope Sky High does more events like this soon.

FRIENDLY'S LUX - SHARED SECTION II AND III





One of the best parts of homie videos is that you can put whoever you want in it, there's no division of riders by brands.  This two song shared part of Friendly's LUX features some old and newer names, including: Nathan Clark, Jayden Hogan. Sean Furze, Jami Chan. Adam Rouse, Brad McManus, and James Bull.  Tons of variety and unique styles from all these dudes.
