Gus Rymer Summer 2011

Editing is a bit much but wow, you cannot deny that this kid has skills.  Not only does he make great videos but he has proven this summer that he has consistency in his high placings at competitions.  Pretty crazy to think where Gus will be at in a couple of years or so.

Jona Humbel Lucky Flow Sponsor

This kid is so good.  Has skill and style.  I've been a fan for a while and hopefully he'll stick with the sport for years to come.  I'm sure he'll be a real big name in a couple years.

Ryan Williams Web Edit 2

I'm literally speechless.  Just...wat.

All you guys gotta do to enter the contest, is LIKE THE PAGE! After that, you Like the Status about the contest. It's that simple, as soon as you Like it, you are entered to win.

The Facebook is below! SO GET GOING GUYS!

More details will be released here on ISB.


Jake Clark/Ty Alexander/Michael Knudson Oregon Video

I'm pretty sure this never made it on IS.  Three of the top West coast riders rode some Oregonian parks and made a chill video.  Some really good tricks in here, always cool to see a little trip video with multiple riders.  Good stuff.

Razor Global Domination Tour Stop #3

The Razor Global Domination Tour is heading to Allen Texas next month. If you are anywhere in the area, or can make it out to the event, I'd get there for sure. Some of the sports best will be there competing, and yes, Dakota will be there. Is he going to continue to sweep the entire tour? Or is someone going to take the top spot in Texas? We will find out on October 15th!

Brendon Smith... Weekend Edit?

Yeah, this video was filmed in two days. Some people spend months and months filming for an edit like this, but I guess when you're Envy Pro Scooters rider, Brendon Smith, you can knock it out in a weekend. There are some tricks in here that I don't even think I've seen before.. Very solid video from one of Australia's best. Also just so everyone knows, Brendon won the JJ3 contest earlier this week, which is probably the biggest contest in Australia.

Also guys don't forget about the King of the Bowl Jam that Envy Scooters is throwing this weekend! Get out there if you can!

Matt Somers

This guys combos are so nutty.  I can't wait to see what he gets for the upcoming Scooterzone DVD, should be a good one.

841 = Scoot 4 L1fe

841 is a wheel company. For any more information on them, I think all you gotta do is read this piece below that is posted under the video on their Vimeo page.

"There are a lot of Extreme Sports out there, many genres of wheels but this time around we are covering the upcoming lifestlye of the "scoot." The definition of scoot is to move swiftly or to dart along a course. With 841 wheels you will do just that, as well as conquer heights and reach limits that only a chosen few have been able to accomplish. We welcome you to come live by the code, 841, which stands for "Scoot 4 L1fe" and become part of this "swift" and fast spreading lifestyle. Each number of this code has many levels of understanding so take pride in the code my fellow scootsmen. The "8" once turned on its side to become the 2 O's in "Scoot" resemble the infinity symbol there for there is no limit to where we can go. The "4" represents the sum of the combination of ideas composed into the kick scooter which are 3 (Rollerblading, Skateboarding, and BMX) plus 1 (YOU the rider) [3+1=4... duh!]. Finally the "1", meaning you only have one life to live, so go out, have fun, and shred till your heart is content. Once again, we welcome you." - 841

Lambert Judith

This guy rides for Tilt's European team.  Some super good riding, 180 fakie nose manny half cab smith combos were so nutty.  Be on the lookout for a Tilt team edit by November.

Tyler Bonner Summer Edit.

I was literally trying to find this song 5 minutes before I watched this video, what are the odds?  Now this is what makes me count Tyler as one of the best riders in the world.  Not one of your average Bonner videos at a park, there are some dopeee street clips.  Definitely wanna see him continue riding street.  Also it looks like Twan has a glidecam now, gettin trendyyy!

Woodward Camp 2012

I'm sure you all remember the footage from last year's scooter camp.  This time I'm sure even more pros will be in attendance so make it down if you want to ride with the best and shred some of the best parks in the world.

Andy Knobbe Mini Vid 2

Ok, gotta be honest here.. I didn't have my expectations too high when I got this video sent to me by Andy. However, after watching it I couldn't help but watch it again. He is an amazing tech rider, with such a smooth and solid style. And everyone can hate on driveway clips all they want, but the clips in his driveway were some of my favorites. Also I believe he is doing brakeless manuals, which makes it even more ridiculous. Great video, and I can't wait to see some future edits from Andy, hopefully filmed with a better camera. Check it out below.

New Aussie Lucky Scooter Parts Flow Rider: Darcy Altavilla

Bobby Pantano: Peace of Mind

Bobby really shocked me with this one.. I feel like from all of his other edits, there was a lot more effort put into this one, and it shows. So many good clips in here, keeps it really techy. Loving all of the heelwhip stuff, and the manual combos are always a plus. Probably my favorite edit from Bobby so far, check it out below.

Check out the edit below.

Eric Ostrom District 2011 Promo

You don't have to like the company to love one of its riders. Eric Ostrom is an OG that has been in the sport about as long as I have. He is one of the riders who sparked the scootering boom in the Bay Area of California. While Eric can shred park with the best of em, he keeps it totally street in his latest edit. Keep in mind a lot of this footage is B Footage, but rest assure it is still filled with bangers. Eric is a rider who has never, and probably will never, follow the trick trends in riding. He has his own unique style, and that's one of the reasons why his videos are always so much fun to watch. Check out Eric doin it for District below.

Eric Ostrom District Scooter Promo 2011 from Realdistrictscooters on Vimeo.

Tuesday, September 20, 2011


Before you watch this, know that there are flashes of drugs/violence/guns.  Don't watch if you aren't mature enough to handle that.

I don't really know what to make of this.  The guy's name is James Brady and this was filmed in Boston.  At first its like one of those skater-made videos making fun of scooters but there are actually a couple good tricks in this?  I'm not sure but it had me paying attention the whole time so I figure it might be worth a watch to you.  And if you don't think so, he does do a trick with his feet on fire.  So yeah.

Stefan Hefner Interview by Tyler Wheeland

Stefan Hefner. The worst part is after reading that name, there are probably so many people who don't recognize it the way they should.
Stefan is a street beast, to say the least...I didn't mean for that to rhyme.. As noted in the interview he is very well known for the slams he takes while riding. Though they hardly phase him, if he has his mind set on landing a trick.. He's landing it one way or another. I really enjoyed this interview that Tyler Wheeland did for Inside-Scooters. Check it out below.

Tyler: Alright dude, whats up?

Stefan: wait are you actually asking me? or is this the interview?

Tyler: It is def happening.

Stefan: oh crap
start over?

Tyler: Alright dude, Whats up?

Stefan: nothin much
just chillin at home in my boxers
and eating candy

Tyler:Oh the life. Double gulp aswell?

Stefan: I got a 2 liter of Pepsi and Mountain Dew in the fridge.
Im all set

Tyler:So are you aware that your mostly known for getting broke off and not actually killing it?

Stefan: ummm...
no not really
I thought I was known as a front scooter flip whore who occasionally dies riding his scooter
but whatever.

Tyler: That too, by now everybody knows you Scooterflipped Hollywood High 16 stair. Want to explain what happened that day?

Stefan: well before I was even very good at scootering, I always saw videos of skaters throwing themselves down the 16 tair
I knew that I wanted to be just as gnarly as them

so when I finally thought I had the skill level and the opportunity to hit the 16 stair for myself
I jumped at the chance
I knew I had to throw something sick down it so I thought a front scooter flip would be best since I'm pretty comfortable with them
When I was running up to the stairset I was pretty damn scared
and on one of the run ups a family got out of their car to watch because they knew that shit was about to go down
one of the people that was watching was this really hot blonde girl
so I figure, hell why not and I hucked the front scooter flip that try
I got it first try and rolled away super clean and fast
I was so stoked
but after a minute I couldn't even walk because the sheer impact destroyed my ankle
but yeah
thats it

Tyler: You still got that first try, thats insane. Did that blonde chick say anything to you afterwards or what?

Stefan: unfortunately no. She walked away before I could start gamin' on her

Tyler: I guess we can't have it all can we. So what about your obsession with animals on your shirts? Do you just love animals?

Stefan: Animals are amazing!
there are so many animals that have such a wide spectrum of reactions they cause when people see them
people can be scared of sharks

Tyler: Like Lil Jon?

Stefan: yeah
but people can also be attracted to cute lil' kittens

Tyler: Kind of like Me with Spiders. They are the worst. But back to scooters dude.
You have a part dropping sometime in November/December as part of Luckys Opus web video. How do you feel about it so far.

Stefan: Well Ive been working my ass off for over a year working on it and have gotten quiet a bit of footage for it
I could probably finish it right now if I wanted
but to be honest, Im still unsatisfied with it

Tyler: Really?

Stefan: there is so much I have on my to-do list for the video
I really just want it to be something I can finish and then just sit back and watch and pat myself on the back for putting everything I had into one video

Tyler: I get you. You have traveled a lot for this part. Where do you feel like you worked the hardest and got the best clips?

Stefan: Ive been blessed enough with a great sponsor like Lucky that has helped me travel a lot in the making of this video.
Ive been to France, Chicago, and Washington which is probably where I got the most footage in the week I was there.
Not to mention how much Ive been all over the beautiful state of California where I live

Tyler: Are people going to be surprised when they see this new part compared to the last video you put out? How has your riding progressed or changed in the last year or so.

Stefan: Well my riding has changed a lot since my last video that I released about a year ago.
Ive definitely become more well-rounded as a whole, but Ive spent a lot of time riding rails.

I definitely think theyre the bees knees

Tyler: Filmed any rail clips that are gonna get people stoked?

Stefan: Maybe a couple, idk. I guess it depends on the person haha

Tyler: What about getting broke off, you put out that bails video and it had some pretty gnarly falls in it. Is that a normal thing for you?

Stefan: Well when I'm trying a trick that is out of my comfort zone it might be a common thing.
On the other hand though, if a trick is in my comfort zone, I usually get it. Over all, falling is just a part of getting better and pushing yourself to find your limits

Tyler: Wise words. What would be a perfect day for you?

Stefan:I don't think a perfect day really exists. There always seems to be something bad in everyday that can kind of spoil the mood. Most of my favorite moments in life though are just when I'm cruisin' down the streets of Los Angeles with the homies, riding spots, getting clips, and having a really big soda in my hand. Thats the life

Tyler: That sounds like what we do every weekend. Well this has been great dude, any last words?

Stefan: Thanks for interviewing me and above all, stay street...

Chris "Thug" Hart and Zig's First Rap Video filmed by Phillip Long

ELYTS and 841 filmer Phillip Long never ceases to amaze me. He recently filmed and made an edit for Chris Hart for a company Chris riders for called Thug Clothing. Chris is one of the most well rounded riders in the sport today. No matter where you drop him, he's going to be able to throw down, really great rider. Check out the edit below.

Chris "Thug" Hart from Motion Art Productions on Vimeo.

Also ELYTS and 841 rider Zig Short had a friend fly in from New York who happened to bring a portable studio. Now I don't know about you guys, but when someone has a portable studio? You drop a track. Common knowledge haha. Great minds obviously think alike, cause Zig decided it was time to let his flow go. Check it out below.

What Do Some of Skateboarding's Best Think of Scooters? is the sad truth...This is coming from top skateboarders such as, Rune Glifberg, Bucky Lasek, Tony Trujillo, and more. While it does suck to hear this kind of reaction, I think for the most part these guys are referring to the little kids depicted in the video. Which let's be honest here, even WE don't like them much.. Anyways, let me know your thoughts by commenting on the video.

Also like to point out how awesome it is of Steve Caballero to have that kind of outlook on the whole thing. Which is what anyone who truly loves the sport they do, would say. Anyways, check out the video.

Big Time Scootering: Pardubice Stop

Big Time Scootering Contest Tour made it's third stop in Pardubice. Some intense riding going down for sure, and a lot of familiar names. MGP Europe was there, Blunt Europe was there, and District and Eagle riders as well. There's one bail in here where I thought the dude was a goner for sure haha. Check out the edit below.

Want to see an amazing edit?

Stephen Diaz is one of the best fimers to take an interest in our sport. His first edit was of Tyler Wheeland with "While I Have It", if you guys don't remember that, click the link below.

While I Have It

Well Stephen isn't stopping there. He is back filming and making edits. Recently he got together with Tyler Wheeland, and Brandon Kilbury who is spending some time in California. The video is just amazing. Plenty of clips from Bk and TWhee, and a lot of the Santa Clarita locals. Check the video out below, and if YOU want to be in Stephen's next edit, keep checking Inside-Scooters. We will be posting details on the next location he will be filming at shortly.

Jan Laranjo Web Edit

Jan is from Austria, and is known as the best tech rider out there. He has some really sick stuff in this little edit. It's one of those videos, that you wish was longer so you could see what else this kid can do. Good stuff here, and thanks to Marko Szabo for sending it in!

Speaking of my good friend Marko, here is some throwaway footage that he recently made into an edit. Really liking the powerslide stuff, he was one of the first riders I remember doing those.

The Muffin Crew- MA Video

The Muffin Crew : M.A. Video from Themuffincrew on Vimeo.

These kinds of videos are so good.  French street riding just never gets old.  The Muffin crew is full of upcoming riders whom all shred.  The guy who sent it to me (Alexis Cullier) said there weren't extraordinary tricks but I think there were some nice ones.

Razor Global Domination Tour Stop #2 Results

A competition that was said to be quite eventful, came to an end with two of the West Coasts best taking the 1-2 spot. Dakota pulled out yet another victory, looking to make a sweep of the entire Tour. Raymond Warner isn't going to make that easy for him though, as he took 2nd place in the contest, and has been on a tear lately. The following three riders were from the East Coast, and I'm sure they kept everyone on their toes the entire time.

Pro Results Final

1 Dakota Schuetz
2 Raymond Warner
3 Gus Rymer
4 Billy Evers
5 Brandon Ruhl

Streets are Callin- Matt Rittler and Texas Summer 2011 Videos

The following two videos are street/street style videos filmed over the past summer.  The first was one I personally put together for Milwaukee area rider Matthew Rittler.  He claims to be the king of trends, but in reality is the farthest thing from it.  I always thought it was trendy to learn tricks without style and cleanliness before moving on to the next trick, but that's clearly not what Matt does.  He has a simple trick list and does them super clean and consistent.

Then we have a video from the Bonanza crew of Texans Theo Kotyk, Kyle Miller, and Chris Dant.  If you heard anything about Texas this summer it was probably about it being 100+ degrees like everyday, so getting a chance to ride in nice weather was few and far between.  Despite that they managed to get some cool footage, rail slayers for sure. Bummer about the song jack though.

Sky High Chicago Street Jam Video

Last Saturday a street jam was held in Chicago, Illinois.  Until recently Chicago hasn't really been known as a major hub for street riding, or scooter riding in general, but over the past few months that has been changing.  Riders like Dylan Kasson, Josh Young, Hep Greg, Elmer Ferrieras, Tom Kvilhaug, and more have made the long drive/flight to the Midwest to ride some of the best street around.   So it seemed like a great idea when the idea of a street jam came up.  Lucky Scooters was generous enough to fly Tyler Wheeland and Stefan Hefner down to stay with Tommy Daddono for the jam.  Also in attendance were Zach Johnston and Issac Miller from Iowa (as well as myself), Josh Young, and Dylan Kasson.  The turnout from the local kids was great too.  The day if you couldn't tell from the video went amazingly, and there will definitely be another jam next year.

The Battle of the Best: Razor Global Domination Tour Stop #2

The Razor Global Domination Tour makes it's second stop in New Hampshire on Saturday. This stop is going to be one of the most exciting we will see throughout the whole tour, and for quite a few reasons. We are going to get to see some of the best riders in the world competing against one another on Saturday. The competition scene has been heating up in our sport in the past two years, and people are really starting to get an idea of who the best competition riders really are.

Without a doubt, all eyes are on Dakota Schuetz. He has proven time and time again, that he is a machine, and I mean that quite literally. Since the Razor Exposed Tour in 2010, Dakota has made it his mission to prove any doubters wrong, and he does it
in incredible fashion. It really doesn’t matter what you think of him, you have got to respect what he does on his scooter at every contest. To this day I have never seen such a heated one on one battle than I witnessed at the Final Stop of the Razor Exposed Tour between Dakota and Tyler Bonner. When Dakota is riding you can clearly see that he fully understands what it means to be a professional rider. Countless hours of practice are but a few of the things that has gotten Dakota where he is in the sport today.

Coming up in the ranks ever since he started riding competitions, is young Cameron
Ward. Cameron dominated the amateur ranks for as long as anyone can remember. When he made the move to Pro, a lot of people including myself, were interested to see how he would hold up. All you gotta do is check his competition results to realize that Cameron has had no problem moving on to Pro. One of the things Cam has going for him is his effortless style, and consistency. When he is out there, it is really hard to comprehend how hard the tricks are that he’s doing, mainly because he makes them look so easy. With Cameron recently learning backflips, it opens up a whole new door of tricks for this kid.

Then there is Tyler Bonner. Known throughout the world as the best rider we’ve ever seen. I will never question how good Tyler is, because I’ve seen him ride first hand on numerous occasion, not to mention being present for each stop of the Razor Exposed Tour, where he took 1st overall. When Tyler turns it on, there is no beating him, it just won’t happen. Though some of us have also seen Tyler on “off days” which when you are going up against guys like Dakota, Cameron, or Raymond Warner..just won’t cut it. While some would say he has been struggling lately, I have to disagree. It is just that the level of competition is rising, and rest assure that Tyler is going to rise with it, if not above it.

However, Rye Airfield, where the contest will be held is surely not a park that west
coast riders have had the opportunity to ride that much. But some riders are lucky enough to call Rye their local. One of those riders is Dan Holm. To anyone who has seen Dan Holm videos, you are well aware of how he kills that place three times over. I don’t put many park riders above Dan. He has a flow like you’ve never seen, and knows that park like the back of his hand. What I am wondering though is if he has the tricks to keep up with some of the other top riders that will be in the contest.

Finally you got two guys who seem to either finish 1st or 2nd in almost every contest they enter, especially if it’s on the East Coast. Which I guess isn’t hard when your names happen to be Dan Barrett and Jon Reyes.

These guys are two of the best riders in the sport today, and while they are known for their tech riding, have been shutting down contests for a while now. On the East Coast there is already a buzz about Dan and Jon going up against Dakota in the competition. I know for a fact that I will be paying close attention to both of them. They both have a distinct style when they ride, and they implement that into their contest runs, which is always a pleasure to witness.

Will they be able to keep the top 3 finishes streak going? Or are they about to come up short to some of the West Coast’s best? We gotta wait until Saturday for those answers. You will be able to find out all of this, on Saturday the day of the competition, right here on Inside-Scooters.

Boxes Limited Joins Inside-Scooters

We can get products whenever we want, from whoever we want. Countless companies now make products, but our sport is growing beyond just scooter parts now. We shouldn't have to buy our apparel from other sports companies, we should have legit companies in our sport that we can trust and buy. Boxes Limited is the answer to all of this. Read below to find out more.

Boxes Limited is the newest apparel company designed with riding in mind. Our industry is growing at a rapid rate, and with that comes change and standards. Boxes intends to be on the forefront of that change with its designs, styles, and team riders representing the brand. Some of the top riders in the sport are riding and representing Boxes.

Riders like Matt McKeen, Dylan Kasson, Brandon Kilbury, and Addison McNaughton are Boxes first team riders to represent the brand and are all working together to help build the brand up. Just in time for holiday season, Boxes is releasing 5 tees, and a pair of shades as its initial run, with new product coming sooner rather than later. This isn't a brand owned by a big corporation or a scooter dad who doesn't know what's going on in this industry, so help support Boxes and make this company grow the way it should!

Also if you haven't already seen the Promo BK made for Boxes, check it out below this post.. and again right here haha. BK proves in this small promo that he is one OG rider who is showing no signs of slowing down. He is constantly pushing his riding, while keeping that trademark BK style. Everything always looks so easy for BK, and so clean. Check out his Boxes Promo below.

BK Boxes Limited Promo

The first Boxes LTD promo comes from Brandon Kilbury.  Super cool little video, I'm pumped to see footy from BK again.

Lucky Scooter Parts: Two New Flow Riders

As many people know Lucky Scooter Parts is adding to our Flow Team. We have decided to add a new member to the squad every week up until November. When November comes we will have a great surprise for the community. Wait to find out...

But for now lets gets back to the flow team. Last week ( went unannounced) Billy Evers was awarded a flow sponsorship, and this week from Europe we pulled …... REMI BOUCHARD! Remi kills it and we are very excited off him. Be sure to tune in next week to see who gets the chance of a lifetime. Everyone send in those sponsor videos to!

Congratulations to Remi Bouchard and Billy Evers!!

Are YOU on Yet?

Well if you're not, you should be. MyRidingZone, or MRZ, was created by European OG rider, Delos Fabien. This website is essentially Facebook and even Ebay, just for scooter riders. There are polls and events list, and even a map where you can see exactly how many riders are near you. There really are a LOT of things to do once you register on MRZ.

Whether you are a company owner, or a rider, you should be on MRZ! To register just click the link below!

Inside-Scooters Remembers 9/11

Hey guys, as most of you know, today is 9/11. Ten years ago, on this day The United States of America went through one of the worst moments in its history. The Twin Towers were attacked by terrorists, and collapsed to the New York City floor. Hundreds of lives were lost that day, and millions of people were affected by what happened on September 11, 2001.

I was pretty young when the attack happened, and I don't think I understood exactly what it meant, and what the consequence would be. It would take years before I really understood the severity of what happened on that day.

Our country would be in a war for the next ten years, and even more lives would be lost. I've had friends that served in the war, and it is never an easy thing to deal with knowing your loved ones are in such a dangerous place. While there is endless discussion about the attack, and who was behind it or, wasn't. I think one thing needs to be made clear. The fact that none of us should ever forget what happened on 9/11.

Take this time to remember anyone you might have lost, or is serving our country overseas. Call your family members, and let them know you love them. Because as we found out on this day ten years ago, nothing in life is certain. Something can happen on a perfectly beautiful morning, that can change the course of our lives for years and years to come. Thanks guys.

Three Riders on the Come up: Denis "Deezy" Nikolajev, Bobby Pantano, Dom Marconi

Three riders that have shown some real improvement this year. All the videos are worth the watch, and they got me wanting to see their next edits. While all of them have stuff they can improve on, with the progression they've been showing lately, I'm confident they will be improving on their faults in future edits. Check the edits out below.

Support Denmark Scootering

Got a message on facebook from a rider in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Apparently the higher ups want to ban scooters from the only skatepark in Copenhagen.  What you can do to help stop that is like the skatepark's facebook page, where you can find an online petition to sign to keep scooters in the park.

Denmark recently had a pretty big competition too, you can check out the video from the day below.

Noah Risser Sky High/Torn Promo

I was hoping that when I put this guy on the Sky High team that he would continue his abormally fast rate of progression and deliver the goods in his next video.  He did not disappoint in this video, even if it is a little bit short.  This guy has crazy skills and I can't wait til he's older and starts getting out to ride more street spots.

ShopECX 4th Annual Fall Brawl Contest

ECX is doing the 4th annual Fall Brawl Scooter Contest coming up in October. This contest is always a huge success out on the East Coast, and if you guys can make it out there I would suggest to do so.

There's going to be over 2,000 dollars in prizes given away to the winners, trophies, a best trick contest, and pro judges...and with only a 20 dollar entry fee. Great list of companies sponsoring the event as well. For more information check the flyer below.

Ryan Gould Throwawayish

So I guess Ryan was filming for a street edit but then decided he didn't like the clips and wanted to start off fresh.  So he released this little edit.  Some really cool clips in here for sure, filming and editing was on point as well.  Looking forward to more street from this guy.

Jon Zegarra Blunt End of Summer Edit

Jonathan Zegarra once again killin the local street and parks of NYC.  Feeble smith 3 whip was so killer as well as the clip right after it.  Buttery smooth tech is something I could watch forever.

Remi Bouchard...Worlds First!!1!

Seriously though..WTF.  This is a trick a couple people have claimed but without footy, Remi is the first guy I know of to film it.  He's too good.

Addict Maxime "Le Baron" Legrand AA Edit

Got another AA Edit, this time from Maxime Legrand. From my earliest memories of Maxime's riding, he makes it clear that he really doesn't give a f*ck when he's riding. High speed on everything, and is known to have thrown down some of the craziest street tricks to date. Check out his AA Edit below.

Scooter Zone 3 in 1: How To FS Feeble, Riverside Store Walkthrough, Scooter Check

Time for a 3 in 1 from the Zone. First up we got a Scooter Check from Trick Darger, aka 50 Different Names. Nick rides for Inside-Scooters, and ScooterZone and usually has a really dialed scooter. While it may not always look brand new, it gets the job done for Nick haha. Check it out below.

Next up we got another Scooter Zone How To from Pro rider, Matt Somers. Matt is going through the grinds, helping you guys get em down better. In this one he teaches you guys a frontside feeble. And yeah, when you're Matt Somers, front feeble 5 just comes that easy.

Finally for everyone that hasn't been down to an actual Scooter Zone location. You can check out the main shop here. When I lived in Riverside, this place was my home away from home. It really is an awesome experience to spend the day at Scooter Zone. Check out the Riverside shop below.

Flavio Pesenti: 2011 Video

"This kid's on some next level sh*t with the rails" - Josh Young.  Flavio rides for Taravana Scooter Wear and the Axone Shop...and straight kills it.  Last two tricks are two of the best tricks I've seen all year.  Worth at least a few rewatches for sure.

To see their new website just follow the link East2West

Nick Darger Inside-Scooters/ScooterZone 2011 Edit

Nick Darger, aka Trick Darger, aka Cody Speake, aka Ralph Robert Monky McMoran, aka Josh Toy, aka TheGame, aka one of the most underrated riders in the sport today. Mainly because he spends a lot of time on the injured list, but when he does get to ride, he shreds.

Street, park, flat, really doesn't matter what you put in front of Nick, he will kill it. You'll notice his video has almost all lines, showing how consistent he is. He is one of the riders that when I ride with him, I just call out tricks and he lands em. That's why he now also rides for Inside-Scooters. Check out his 2011 IS/SZ Edit below.

Jean-Yves "JD" Randriambelson Addict Scooter Check YA KNOW!

It's no secret anymore that Addict has some of the top street riders in the world on its Team. Some of the Addict guys including Johann Moreau and JD were recently spending some time in California, getting some riding and filming done. JD took the time to film this scooter check while he was at the Proto Shop. He explains a lot about his signature deck which you'll see in the video. At the end we're treated to some sick riding from one of Addict's best.
