Big congrats to Jack Dauth to making it on the UrbanArtt squad! The announcement was made in style with this banger of a welcome video. Jack's rise in scootering is a very recent thing, and it's been amazing to see his journey of progression. He's got such a huge back of tricks- all the rotor/heel/fullwhip combos, overcrooks, noseblunts, tech handrail stuff, big handrail stuff. He makes it all look so easy. This one will be on repeat all day.

It's always interesting to see the influence one's local has over their riding style. Beau Neal isn't someone I'm super familiar with, but it's cool to see how he uses the technical elements of Glasgow in a similar way JonDev did before he moved. Yet its clear he's doing it his own way, with the lack of pegs and slightly less trick heavy combos. Wallie/board pop bar on the handrail into the bank was crazy, I can't make sense of that one.
I've only ever heard nice things about Aaron. He seems to be a hard working dude who loves scootering, and that comes across in his riding. He's currently AM for Crisp and slowly working his way up the ranks. I did think some of the filming/editing was a little suspect, but damn that was a high half cab. Fullwhip manual was unexpected too!

It's safe to say that Kevin Austin is one of the greatest to ever touch a scooter. This is what scootering is supposed to look like- everything done perfectly clean, like you're not even trying. I feel like a broken record every time I talk about a Kaustin video but he's just that good. Add that cleanliness to the extremely technical tricks as consistently as Kevin is doing- rotor heels, feeble hard 3 whip, smith truck on a rail, etc- you get a rare combination of top tier scooter riding. Filming was spot on as well. Watch this a dozen times and then go shred.

Last week the Scooter Farm brought you a Matt McKeen interview, and now here's his "Hour in the Barnyard." It's not easy to come up with a whole lot of clips in such a tiny space with a limited amount of time, but Matt shows his creativity, using every part of the building (and even the curb outside) to produce some dope clips. Props to White Trash Willy/the Farm for doing such a cool video series!

No Jumper is the (self proclaimed) Coolest Podcast in the World, started by Adam Grandmaison of The Come Up BMX/OSS. Normally he interviews different rappers/hip hop artists, but he also brings in figureheads of the Internet world. If you're reading this, you already know who Tanner Fox is. Whether you're into his vlogs or not, you gotta respect the kid for his hustle. It's not easy to keep up consistency with webisodes, and the numbers he gets on his shit is insane. Over the course of the interview, he and Adam delve into the intricacies of thumbnail editing, how Tanner got his start on Youtube, amd more. Check it out, and give a follow to No Jumper because they do have awesome interviews with a lot of cool people.

The Scooter Farm has been doing a new video series for their Youtube in which they interview a rider and then have them film a video in 1 hour in their park. This interview is with none other than Matt McKeen. They asked everyone's favorite street rider some good questions and it's cool to see a side of someone you don't normally get to see through their riding videos. Matt's "Hour in the Barnyard" comes out this Friday, you can be sure to find it here on Inside.

JACT, the shortened name for Just A Commadting, is a full length video from the Command Crew in the UK. To help hype it up, they released this re-edited version of Danny's part. Danny, despite living in one of the worst places for street riding, somehow always seems to able be to produce quality footage at a decent rate. I'm never gonna understand how he can hold those scooter fakie nose manuals so well. He's also clean as a whistle. You can support the crew and buy the DVD here.

Strap yourselves in for this one. Ethic sent JD, Jojo, and Porcial out to Woodward West recently and the dudes went ham on the place. Rails, ledges, flyboxes, even the Megaramp all got destroyed by these three. The Megaramp clips were so insane, I can't imagine what its like to fly so far so fast. Props to Salim Sikha for killing it behind the lens too.

The boys down under have done it again, with the Australian Friendly/Fam Hungry crews collabing with New Zealand's YesPlease crew after the Auckland Street Jam for one amazing crew video. Kevin Austin, Nathan Fleming, Jon Archer, Royce King, and more lay waste to the urban settings of NZ, destroying rails, bump to bars, sets, and more. Lawrence Rubin does a great job behind the lens (with the help of the homies) to really make this edit complete. HVX footage looks so nice, always happy to see it as opposed to DSLR footy.

You guys know who Jake Hershey is. Born and raised on the east coast, growing up in the legendary park scene centered around The Incline Club, Brick park, and many more, and becoming one of the top figureheads in the industry through his sales/TM jobs and announcing gigs. So as someone so centered around the park side of scootering, it's incredible to see him so dedicated to filming an entire street part. Jake moved to SD recently and its clear how much riding with the crew down there has motivated him to push himself. He keeps it real with an OG East Coast type song and throws down a perfect ender. Congrats and awesome job to him!

Boris is so good. One of the best in the game, he traveled across Europe as well as Woodward in the US to film this video for Flavor. There are so many crazy tricks, but the one that got me was the drop to rail ride toward the end...I was fully expecting a drop to boardslide, so that caught me soo offguard. Props to this dude!

Mark Williams seems like enigma to me. What do we really know about him? You might remember him back in the day as the little "Black Momba" when Basic Bunch was starting to be a thing. Then he moved to Atlanta(?) and not much was seen or heard of him...cycling through scootering and skating, he started making moves on Instagram and last year Sky High picked him up. He's got a love of all things Japanese...and boardslides, apparently. I guess he wanted more lines for this video but sadly, we only get to see him go through every kinked rail he could find. I feel like this is only a taste of what Mark's capable of, but I'll take it.

How is this dude doing it? Zack showing us all how it's done- two amazing videos within a month. He's got one of the most amazing work ethics in scootering- whether its filming on the streets or working in the TGE warehouse. This video is for a signature Hella Grip colorway and Zack could not be any more deserving of it. Congrats to him!

The highly anticipated 25 minute video from Sky High filmed over their SD10 trip is finally out. These dudes always keep it raw while performing some of the most radical scoot maneuvers ever. This video takes us through their trip park by park, as they drop the hammer on Socal's many parks and plazas. Everyone kills it but I think its safe to say Shorty and Reece are just not human.

The Austin Street Jam is one of the fastest growing jams in the US. Street jam season is quickly approaching so start saving up! Between this one, Seattle Jam, Chi Jam, MKE Jam, SD Jam, NYC Jam, there are plenty of events so no matter where you live you got no excuse to come out to one.
Check out the video from last year, when it became the "San Antonio" Street Jam:

This man is insane. With his first sig deck being released, Flavio was on a mission to film some of the craziest clips of his life. I don't know how he does any of this stuff. Whip noseblunt 3? How does that even work with two front pegs? Heelwhip in Barca over the wave to fence spot was so dope too. This guy does not slow down.

One of the most active people behind the lens on the East Coast, John Cottle manages to spend some quality time in front of it as well. Love seeing his creative take on the cutty spots of the NYC area, plus some Cali and Florida spots too. Powerslide feeble and fastplant 3 heel came outta nowhere. Solid edit.

The filming collective known as Alchemyst has dropped another awesome video. This one, the title of which translates to "Good Night," documents the crew seshing their urban cityscapes during the evening hours. There's really nothing better than cruising the city at night with the bros, and these guys do an awesome job capturing the vibes. I love the mix of digital to analog footage, it's not too much to be gimmicky and really is their own style. Great job all around by these dudes.

I've been watching this kid on Instagram for a while now and he's always posting heat, but I don't know if I ever saw any actual videos of him til now. I guess this was filmed in just three days. Incredible talent and skill from Will, dude has crazy combos, amazing rail game, goes fast. I hope he keeps with it as he gets older, he's gonna be someone to look out for in the future.
