Reece Jones in Sydney





Reece might be the best scooter rider right now.  5050 game is unreal.  Put him on one of the best decks for 5050s, the TSI Sledge, and in one of the best cities for spots, Sydney, and you have one of the craziest edits of 2015.  This kid is on fire this year.  Watch this now.

Luis Oppel TSI





Luis Oppel is a dude who's been lowkey killing it on Instagram.  TSI hooked him up and this is his first real video for them.  Front hurricane the handrail, fakie 5050 downside, fakie front feeble to fakie back feeble, so many rad tricks.  It is a bummer though when your self filmed Instagram clips are filmed better than the clips in your actual edit.  Hopefully next time the production side will improve.

FRIENDLY'S LUX - DARCY ALTAVILLA





Darcy Altavilla brings smooth, creative lines to the next section of LUX.  Gap to rock ride to down whip was tight.  Tap to tap on the poles also got me hyped.

Mike DeJong | Downside





If you haven't heard, Downside Scooters, a company out of Australia, has entered the US market once again and one of the first riders to be put on the team was Mike Dejong.  Hailing from Texas, Mike has been really progressing over the past year or so.  You can even see the progression in this video.  He's got a solid base of squeaky clean tricks and is starting to come out with some seriously sick clips (bs half cab manual fs 180 heel!).

SDL Boyz- The Return.





One of the unfortunate things about crews is that they get older, they get sponsored.  Their clips to go individual edits for their sponsors, which is still cool.  But the crew videos tend to disappear.  Crew videos always have a way different vibe than company videos.  The SDL Boyz bring back that vibe with this "Return" video, featuring guys like Zack Martin, Gerardo Gonzales, and more.

Logan Fuller & Friends L.H.S RAW





Not only is Logan Fuller one of the gnarliest dudes on a scooter, he's also one of the coolest.  Here's some footage of him and a bunch of homies he's collected over the past year or so.  Logan's clips are all pretty much DVD section worthy, would have been sick to see them edited with a song.  All the homies kill it too, there's even a couple Noah Risser clips, for those who remember him.

Leader grinder 2015 Didine Terchague





This whole edit is mindblowing.  Game-changing peg tricks, amazing spots, and Roots Boy behind the lens.  I could list off the tricks that stood out but I'd end up listing every clip so just watch the video.

DrewBoy





This was super tight.  Part of the CoCrew, Andrew Cordova has a super smooth, unique style.  Lots of BMX influence.  That 360 flat was so gnar.  Ian Herncjar also does a great job with every video he films and edits, including this one.

Waka Wednesdays Ep. 2

Waka Wednesdays Ep. 2 from Patrick Ring on Vimeo.

Brian Chavez is the real deal.  At just 15 years old, he's doing tricks with a style many pros wish they could have.  These Waka Wednesdays videos are just a taste of the real stuff he's been filming in the streets for Sky High and Satori.  Be on the lookout for those...

Justin Phillips for Anaquda





Justin Phillips is one of the few East Coast street power players.  He rides for Anaquda and his latest video just dropped.  He brings the European peg style to the US in his own way.  The two clips at :26 were super sick, that is a proper example of how a feeble should be done.

BLUNT | BERLIN





Part Two of the Blunt Euro Street Tour had Flavio, Jon, and Jessee riding in Berlin, Germany.  A flurry of tech bangers beheld the the historic city, as the guys rode spots straight out of a dream.  Both Jon and Jessee kill it on one wheel harder than pretty much anyone.  Jessee's peg five turnaround was so crazy.  Flavio's whip ice heel was one of my favorite clips too.

Cherrybrook





Sean Furze broke out the camera at Cherrybrook skatepark to film the Friendly boys just doin their thing.  This is definitely a chill session, but with these guys their chill sessions are still heavy.  Enjoy the shreddage from Kevin Austin, Jon Archer, and the rest of the Hat Gang.

Sean Cardwell Destroys Black Ninja in 4 Minutes, 20 Seconds.





You guys remember Black Ninja, right?  The Youtube skateboarder who claimed to "master" scootering in minutes?  The dude is like a caricature of himself, reflecting the general views of a large part of skateboarding (120k subscribers is no joke) in some sort of sad, exaggerated way. You can tell I'm a big fan.  So Sean Cardwell, of Grape Slushies/Woodward fame, made this video to parody his "Skater Masters Scootering in Minutes" video, and does it perfectly, even down to the Youtube description.  I felt like I was watching a Jon Stewart clip.  Kudos to Sean.


FRIENDLY'S LUX - REECE ALDERTON





Reece Alderton came through with a super solid part in LUX.  Gap to rails, big gap tricks, high speed lines and grind/manual combos, all with his own style.  Give it a watch.

BLUNT | LONDON





US riders Jon Reyes and Jessee Ikedah joined French Envy rider Flavio Pesenti for a tour around Europe to hit spots and parks.  Their first city was London.  Jessee really puts on a show at that wallride spots, he merked it.  I was psyched on Flavio's fakie feeble hop up fakie nose manual too.  Next video will be featuring the best of Berlin.

Terry Price | Woodward East





It's so awesome to see Terry still out there killing it.  The Maddgear OG spent some time out at Woodward in Pennsylvania and filmed this in two days.  Love the classic big transfers, and he always manages to bring some surprising tech tech tricks too (manual to scooterfakie, double whiplash). Nice start to the weekend with this one.

Throwback Thursday: Stefan Hefner's Opus Part

When I first saw footage of Stefan, I instantly became a fan. He's an awesome rider, and an even cooler person. Back when Lucky was known for having some of the heaviest hitters in the street game, it was Stefan that got the most attention from their full length video, Opus. To this day his section is still golden. The combination of Tyler Wheeland's filming, and Stefan's riding is remarkable. Throw in a perfect song choice, and well done editing, and you have a classic. Check it out below if you haven't seen it before. Hell, even if you have, watch it again.



Detatched ribon cable in NYC





Olivia Monks recently took a trip to NYC to film with the homies.  Unfortunately her mic started malfunctioning so she decided to mute the clips and put em on a timeline to make this video.  Kong, Tpritch, Mike Anesini and more are all featured.

Johan Grunwald goes down under | BLUNT





Late last year, Johan traveled to Australia for a backpacking trip and was able to meet up with the Friendly crew to ride and film.  Over the course of five months, he was able to stack these clips with the gang. Clip at 2:22 was super sick, felt like he was never gonna stop.  Johan is currently in New Zealand and is set to meet back up with the Friendly boys, definitely looking forward to whatever he puts out next!
