Jaydin Haskins Kooky 2014.





This was so sick.  Jaydin has been on the come up for a while now, and this is definitely going to get him noticed.  Tech lines, rail shredding, creativity, and an Issac status ender make this one of the best videos of late.  Board hard down heel is so crazy, that trick just shouldn't work but he stomped it and every other trick perfectly.

The Scooter Farm presents "Farmtage 2.0"





The Scooter Farm does a lot of cool things for scootering, and these Farmtage's are one of em.  Full of rad footage from Scooter Farm riders and homies, this one is super good.  Elliot's 270 back lip clips are completely mental.

TILT | Sky High | Chicago Jam 2014





It's crazy how these keep getting better and better.  This year we decided to switch up the spots a bit, and added in some more gaps and a different handrail.  Each spot had their own challenges (takeoff for the rail was terrible) but somehow these dudes threw down. Don't miss me getting hyped AF at everyone killing it hahah.  It was definitely a blast and you are blowing it if you miss it next year.

INITIATION Teaser





Been wondering when VHS footage was going to surface in a scooter video.  This teaser for an Alchemyst production features some in the beginning before going to some other SD footage.  Alchemyst made one of my favorite videos of the year, and from the looks of this teaser it seems the next video will not disappoint.

JBS/DISTRICT: BJ DECK PROMO





Brandon James recently had a signature District deck released, here's a promo showing it in action.  All the usual steeze from BJ as we've come to expect, love those backside powerslides.  180 bar fakie ice was super dope too.

Reece Jones BAREFOOTAGE TEASER





I'm never gonna understand what possesses people to ride without shoes.  Still, this is going to be crazy.  Reece is amazing with or without shoes, I'm stoked on this teaser and I'm sure I'll be stoked on the video when it drops.

Mayfairtage #2

Anton, Ryan, Kevin, and David hooked up and got this edit done recently. Such a treat to watch these guys ride. All of them killed it. Chill edit, with a laid back vibe, and solid riding. Check it out, and be on the look out for some solo edits from these dudes in the future.


Dylan Kasson Sky High Park Video





DK has been on Sky High for a while now, and recently released this park video to support them.  It's been a while since this much Dylan park footy has come out, so enjoy this.  Quite refreshing to see him riding his old locals like he used to back in the day.




Stay Fresh: Justin Robertson





We recently posted Justin's GTLI part, now check out his part in his local production, Stay Fresh.  As it's newer, the riding is a bit better than his GTLI part.  Combos for days, both in the parks and the streets.  I do have to say though, he could not have picked two worse songs to put in a video...song choice has never really been Justin's strong suit.

Welcome to VEX | Danny Roberts





Wowww Danny killed it in this video.  Super clean as always, and that ender...that trick is so messed up to me.  Psyched to see him on Vex!

New Tilt Arc Clamps at Gryndo

The all-new Tilt Arc clamps are finally available at Gryndo Scooters! These long-awaited clamps are a new spin on the classic and popular Tilt Double, SCS, and LT pro scooter clamps.
Each Arc clamp is crafted from 6061 heat-treated aluminum, and is profile machined for a superior design that perfectly balances weight and strength. Tilt Arc clamps feature custom bolts and 50% larger threads for an extra dose of clamping power. These clamps are incredibly reliable, and won't let you down in the middle of a shred session. Your scooter will stay dialed and your compression will stay tight, no matter what gets thrown at you. Finally, every Tilt Arc clamp bolt comes pre-applied with anti-seize – yet another layer of protection to ensure the incredible performance that you need.
The Tilt Arc clamp comes in six colors and is available in three versions – the Tilt ARC Double clamp (for oversized bars only), the Arc SCS clamp (with SCS compression and a shim for standard and oversized bars), and the Arc SCS LT clamp (with SCS compression for standard sized bars only). Pick one up today and you'll see why riders the world over have made Tilt their clamp of choice.

GTLI DVD: Nick Donatelli





I think we all remember Nick's Lucky First Clover part.  That era really showed us his "go big or go home" mentality.  During the three year filming period for the ScooterZone DVD, Nick wanted to show he can do it all on the streets.  So in this part we have some tech ledge stuff, rails, in addition to the hucking down sets we're used to seeing.  He also throws in some tech stuff down sets, don't see too many people doing 3 whip bars down 4 blocks.

Reece Jones US AND THEM DVD Part Remix





This part was fire.  Reece is one of Australia's best, amazing style and rail abilities.  This is a re-edit of his part in Unfair's DVD "US AND THEM".  Polejam into that ditch, that doublewhip, and ender were all so good.

Throwback Thursday: PROTO Team Rider: Dylan Kasson

Talk about a throwback.. Dylan joined Proto over 6 years ago, and this video came out around 2009. It was a hit when it dropped, and it really opened peoples eyes when it came to Dylan's riding. I'm sure Dylan doesn't like this video, but I know a lot of people, including myself, still do. Now a days Dylan rides for Tilt, after making the hard decision to leave his sponsor of over 6 years, Proto. I'm interested to see how riding for Tilt will affect Dylan's riding. They apparently have a lot of new products coming out in the near future.

The Harvest: Full Length




We've been posting the parts from the the Bamboozle x Speak Apparel full length, The Harvest, and here's the video in its entirety.  The intro is super cool, the editing is on point, music is good, and everyone throws down too.  Sit back and enjoy this one.

Welcome to Scooter Zone: Richard and Brandon Bryant

You know what's cooler than two brothers riding together? Two twin brothers riding together. These two young dudes were recently added to the Scooter Zone Team, and Ryan Gould got together with them to film and edit this video. He see's huge potential in them, and I have to agree, I can see them going a long way. Check it out yourself below.

L.f.t.C | VZ





I don't know what L.f.t.C. means, but this is a video of Viktor Zonho on a channel called TOG (True Original Gangsters).  This edit is super raw, with the editing, the soundtrack, and the riding.  He's a peg guy and has them icepicks locked down.

WW x Life





Here's some Woodward footage from the lens of John Cottle, featuring Matt McKeen, Hep Greg, Logan Fuller, Lucky Borelli, as well as John.  Diggin the song, good stuff.

#Skateuary





The Denver boys finally got themselves an indoor, so now they can continue to progress when their superparks are rained/snowed out.  Park looks fun, video was rad.  Full ceeb back lip by Ian was so nutty.
