Proto Scooters Throwaway.



If you can completely captivate your target audience with a throwaway video from the DVD you're filming, you know you're doing something right.
Throw out all your preconceptions of who the best team in the game is at the moment. The Proto family has that under wraps.
If you're looking for tech world firsts, consistency like no other and a level of riding miles above any team or any one, look no further.

  5. I think of this as a sneak peak of the quality of riding, filming and editing we can expect from the Pro's of the sport. Proto, thanks for making us look damn good.

    Amazing riding. I adore the Proto team

  10. Easssy Aaron...def. overdid it on that video description..lol

    We all know Dan, Dylan, and Jon are some of the leading tech riders in the sport..and thats what this video showed. It didn't showcase the Proto Team as a whole..lol

  11. why dont you like proto steven? we are just riding and filming and having a good time i dont understand why people that are on eagle and the associated companies have bad feelings toward us and i dont think we have ever done anything to make people mad

    ReplyDelete
  12. Where is Steadman? But holy crap nice video.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't got a problem with most of the riders on Proto...lol If I did, they'd know it.

    But this video description was saying they're are without a doubt the best Team in the sport? The video doesn't show that. It doesn't even show the full Team? I love all the riders shown in this video...you already know that Dylan...don't try and start something out of nothing.

  14. I agree with the point that it would have been nice to have everyone in the video (especially Steezman).

    Maybe that means Alex and the others don't have any throwaway? Everything they have filmed is being saved 'cause it's awesome! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. i could watch dan and jon ride all day. good shit

    ReplyDelete
  16. ehh i was going to buy the DVD but now im debating it. that was a disappointment imo

    ReplyDelete
  17. That was really not that good it deff didn't live up to the desciption proto is old news

    ReplyDelete
  18. oh ok looks like I misunderstood

    ReplyDelete
  19. yeah aaron is definitely overdramatic with his video descriptions sometimes, i dont think erik feenstra is the peg god, and i dont think proto is without a doubt the best team, really good video though, i love the vibe proto videos always have

    ReplyDelete
  20. yes!!! definately the best team in the sport, without a doubt. i cannot wait for the DVD. i just hope they use a better song lol.

    ReplyDelete
  21. lol even if the people in this video were the only people on proto.

    they still would be the best team in the sport

    its not everyday that people cab driver over a pyramid

    ReplyDelete
  22. somebody shave kassons beard, please god

    ReplyDelete
  23. wasn't too impressed by most of it. super legit everything though, and it is just throwaway after all. i'm sure i'll get a copy of it when it comes out

    ReplyDelete
  24. personally im glad alex steadman wasnt in this. he ruins videos with hes wannabe style and forced originality, which is, when it comes down to it, terrible riding.

    ReplyDelete
  25. holy fuck jon reyes is fucking nuts! 360 to front slider i shat my pants! and dyal kasson with hes heelwhip combos my god....

    ReplyDelete
  26. shaky filming + good camera = good filming?

    ReplyDelete
  27. People don't understand the media.
    Media is ALL exaggeration, if it's not, you'd be doing something else.
    If i described this as "Half the proto team knocking out some throwaway clips" sure, the majority of people would watch it, but there'd be people who just look at it, and say eh, throwaway, whatever.

    This comment isn't saying that proto aren't the best team in the world. They pretty well just proved that they kill everyone else without the likes of BK, Chema and Steadman.

    Scooter kids have to stop being so cynical, if you don't like my descriptions, don't read them. Watch the video, or look at the photo accompanying it.

    I'm doing my job, judging on comments posted, look how many people have watched this compared to an average video post, then tell me i'm not doing my job right.

  28. that fakie truck over the pyramid is one of the most mind-blowing tricks i've seen this week, how's that throwaway?

    ReplyDelete
  29. lol No one said you're not doing your job...I was about to email you about how good causing a stir can be...especially with scooter riders that feed off a little remarks like that. I was just personally saying this does NOT show the Proto Team as a whole. It's in no way a dig on Dan, Jon, or Dylan...which is basically what this video is all about. You can take those 3 riders and stick them in any video...and it will shit on 80% of anything else out there.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I Love Dan Barret, Jon Reyes and Dylan Kasson

    ReplyDelete
  31. anybody whos saying that this video dissapointed them or whatever is fucking retarded. first of all, before you even read aarons description (which in my opinion was all true), you see the title of the video says THROWAWAY. only a moron would raise his expectations so high for a THROWAWAY VIDEO! get a clue scooter kids. but yeah all the riding was so sick and anybody trying to hate on this video obviously doesnt have a clue about what legit scootering is.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Meh...I beleiv people hate Proto caus their attitude...I hear they act stuck up and not cool to other people. Look at Twan remark/comment..obvious they arent even "TEAM"

    ReplyDelete
  33. the ignorance of some people is just mind blowing.

    proto is old news?? seriously? for one, just read the caption for this vid on vimeo "Just because we don't make terrible park edits every weekend to MGMT songs and don't do triple butter cups for best trick contests doesn't mean we are dead. Proto is stronger than ever and still filming for the full length video". SO TRUE, just because we don't see an edit from them every single week doesn't mean they're old news! it's so smart, there's so much that we as a community do not know about with Proto and that is what makes it great when you see it. every section in their video will be brand new, super fresh and 100% progressive, and it will sweep us off our feet because they do a GREAT job of keeping it a secret... gosh man...

    aaron, your caption was perfect. a lot of the descriptions on IS are over the top, but this is spot on, i agree with everything you said.

    and finally, if you're going to be a critic, leave your name, don't be one of those guys..

  34. I agree on Jepi. So many Team is a REAL Team, all guys together and have fun together. Seem proto is divided too much...some of their riding even I would say sucks.....some like Dlyan Jon and Dan is great riding....but not all.

    ReplyDelete
  35. who cares what twan says, throw him off the team for all i care, he rides so many other parts and doesnt stay true to proto like every other one of the riders do.

    ReplyDelete
  36. if hes not being respected in the team, then he should leave proto... simple as that!

    video was sweet!
    especially since its only throwaway footage

    ReplyDelete
  37. Elmer looks like a douche in that helmet. Hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  38. dan barrett for president.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeah seriously, I know Twan's been on the team longer than almost everyone but he should still be riding proto parts. He's the only one on that team that does not seem to get along with everyone else. It seems obvious that he doesn't like Dylan and I even remember when Steadman was put on the team he was upset and saying that it would be like counterprodcutive. But hey, that's just my opinion.

  40. thanks for all the comments guys its good to see not everybody that scooters is bummed on proto we will try as hard as we can to make the dvd worth it! maybe if you got to know us in real life and not online you would find out we arent assholes or divided were a big family trying to promote the sport and push the level of riding!

    ReplyDelete
  41. it is a good video but it does not compare to lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  42. it doesn't compare to lucky because both of those lucky vids are TRAILERS! NOT THROWAWAY. we haven't even seen a glimpse of what will be in the Proto vid. stop being dumb, people.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Peoples hate my riding :((

    Good to see you put the 540 on that bank in the edit Dylan ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love your riding Alex!! I rode with Alex and Dylan at Tempe and they are some of the most chill riders to ride with. I love PROTO even though I don't ride any of their parts haha.

  45. Everyone needs to quit comparing and hating...

    Anyone who rides street deserves respect. =]

    Proto is going to get bigger and bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  46. bahaha best team? these guys never do good at comps..no one likes proto cuz theyre all dickheads who think theyre the shit and talk and treat others like they dont matter

    ReplyDelete
  47. dylans a homo and this video was pretty fukin weak

    ReplyDelete
  48. they all steer from drugs.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I like you matt.^

    ReplyDelete
  50. wow they can even bri flip

    ReplyDelete
  51. ^ Player, how many comp riders do we have? Let's see, we've got Twan, and, uhhh, ummm, Twan? No wait I already said him. If you think comps are the basis of a good rider you've get a pretty skewed vision of riding.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hahahaha..then dont try and act like you guys are tha best..look at Lucky and MGP and Eagle riders these guys are taking podium at comps..and throw down in their vids...yall can make a video part....ooooh great. No telling how long those tricks take you to land in the clips...but the REAL dominant and TOP teams are taking top spots in comps, AND putting out good vids...so whos really the best team here?

    ReplyDelete
  53. my god.......chill out people. PROTO IS one of the top teams in the sport..youd be stupid to think otherwise. All I meant when I posted was that this video didn't show the WHOLE Team...it just showcased Dan, Jon, and Dylan...which we all know are sick. People gotta chill out with all the comparing and shit....starting drama out of nothing. I'm about to just stop allowing any of the comments from here on out...lame.

  54. Cleanest fingerwhips Ever?

  55. no doubt one of the best vids i seen in a while had to watch to fakie truck like 5 times cant wait for the vid and to all those people that are saying that proto is un legit cuz they dont go to comps keep in mind that our comunity as a whole wouldnt be where are today with out proto. and its good to see a video that wasnt filmed in a weekend

  56. wow, this is ridiculous, this was a chill video calm down.

    although i think all of us need some work on filming, i mean that over the entire community no one excluded.

    ReplyDelete
  57. It doesn't matter bout who is winning comps. That is not the defining factor of a good rider. If you wanna take there.. The rad is best, Tyler bonner rapes all. You ain't first your last... Anyways haha nice clips guys, love the riders and team, also imo, no one is doing for the sport what drew has.. I fuckin hate the pol talking mad wack shit and don't do anything for the sport but cause drama. Ugh yeah can't wait to own that vid

    ReplyDelete
  61. Dylan glad you put that 540 on the bank in there hahah. We always have fun and thats what basically matters to me. Were doing our best to make a legit full length dvd. Thanks everyone for the support.
