Jake O'Donnell Lucky Edit

Jake is one of the most unique/fun riders to watch.  You never know what trick he's gonna do next.  He is definitely deserving of a spot on Lucky's flow team.

Flavio Pesenti and Martin Andre: Tac Tac Bang Bang!

Guest writer Kirk Svensson says, "This shit was bangin."  That pretty much sums it up.  These guys are crazy, some of the most ridiculous grind combos I've ever seen.

Scooter Zone's Matt Somers Driveway Edit + Justin Robertson How To 540 Air

Matt Somers can kill it in the streets, we already know that. But that doesn't mean he can't still have fun in his driveway. Just a really chill edit, with some sick tech riding. Loving this video. Last trick is just, what.

Next up we got Scooter Zone's only Canadian rider, Justin Robertson teaching us how to do 540 Airs. We've seen Justin boosting em in videos for a couple years now. Here's how he does them.

Christmas Edit from Gizmania

George Gartlehner and Tobias Mayer, from Austria, ride for Gizmania, and got this edit together for Christmas. A smoking Santa? Ohh yeaaah. Check it out below.

Kodye Gregory Spits Fire For a New Set up and Blunt Scooters is now Envy in NZ and America

Ok so I know haters gonna try and hate, but Kodye killed it with this video. Envy was running a christmas contest, basically the person who could put together the best rap, would win Ryan Upchurch's complete set up. Pretty obvious that Kodye had this on lock down. Check out his winning submission below. Congrats Kodye.

Also, as most people know, in Australia Blunt Pro Scooters, was changed to Envy Pro Scooters. However, until now it remained Blunt in New Zealand and America. Well not anymore. Blunt will now be officially known as Envy in Aus, NZ, and America. Let it be known that in Europe and The UK, it will remain Blunt Pro Scooters. I personally like the name change a lot, and the new products coming out are getting a lot of good reviews. So just know that even though the name is changing, the quality of products is not. If you wanna follow what Envy is up to on a daily basis, hit up their Facebook by clicking the link below.

Connor Love and Colton Freemantle Day Edit

Connor Love is a rider who slips under the radar most of the time, which is unfortunate cause he's got some skill. Colton is an up and comer, and a big supporter of Inside-Scooters. They recently got together and made this day edit. Nothing really ridic in here, just good clean riding. I miss day edit videos like this. I'd like to see full edits from them sometime in the future though, so we can really see what these guys can do. For now check out the day edit.

Proto Catalyst 2010

Yes, this is it.  The whole thing.  The best DVD/team video to document scooter riding.  Proto uploaded it to their Vimeo channel today for everyone, pretty nice little late Christmas gift if you ask me.  I think I speak for many when I say this is an inspiring video.  So if you haven't (or even if you have) seen it, get a drink, grab some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy.

I hope this means their next video will be done soon...

Montreux 2011 Competition Video

Another video from this past April's Montreux competition in Switzerland came out recently.  So many amazing riders were in attendance, such a crazy mix of different styles.  Ridiculous tricks from everyone throughout the whole video.

Merry Christmas From Inside-Scooters!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all got everything you wanted, and if you didn't, stop being a spoiled ass brat and be glad you got anything at all! Just kidding, Merry Christmas guys.

Vincent Kudrna- Welcome to Blunt

So Blunt recently added this guy, Vincent Kudrna, to the team.  I don't know much about Vince other than that he lives in California and does some crazy tricks.  I'm sure he'll be a great fit to the team.  This was also filmed in just three days, so yeah.

Friday, December 23, 2011

Warick Beynon 2011 Envy Edit

Warick, or Wazzeh as he is usually called, is one of the sport's most charismatic riders.  Riding with this guy is pretty cool, he's always super friendly with people.  While this video is all park I feel like he could definitely make an enjoyable street video.  Not too many people have those peg nose manual things as dialed as he does.

Jon Zegarra AOS v2 Clips

Jon's riding is so nice to watch.  He puts down smith combos with style and ease...I guess that means steeze.  He talks a little bit about the new Blunt/Envy AOSv2 deck as well, he makes it look pretty good.

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Matt Mckeen/Joey Gilman

Yeah I guess these guys are alright.  That Matt fellow can do a couple tricks.  That tooth to whip though, is that Matt's scooter?  I feel like such a scooter kid noticing that kinda thing.

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Jason Griffiths 2011

Footage of Jason is few and far between but its always good.  All these Magray guys shred.  Jason's front feebles are so dialed.

Scooter Kids

This is a documentary by Jon Knudtson that was released a couple weeks ago.  I was going to post it but at the time there had already been another docu on the front page so I set it aside and promptly forgot about it.  Anyways this features the scooter scene in the Boston, Massachussetts area.  Its pretty cool hearing what the skaters have to say about us.  Nice job Jon.

Bobby Pantano Lucky Promo 2

Bobby's combos just keep getting more and more tech.  It also looks like hes starting to go a bit faster with his tricks, and getting a bit cleaner.  I just want to fast forward and see this kid in a year or two.  Also, that capped street hubba is such a bummer, it looks good.

Razor Phase Two Model Review by Royce King + Team Razor Video 22

There's been a lot of discussion over the past months about Razor's Phase Two products. In this video review, we get a first hand look at some of them, by Razor's own Royce King. Royce has been one of my favorite riders for a couple years now, and he has some clips at the end of the review. Check it out below.

The whole deck looks really sick. Not feeling the fork design at all. Bars are just your standard RAD Crow style bars, and I've yet to try out the wheels. If anyone has tried out various parts on the scooter, let us know in the comments.

Next up is Team Razor Video 22. Featuring Big Ron, Tanner, Cary, and Beggs. Good stuff by all the guys.

"Razor, I can't do the helmets man!" - Cary

Eric Ostrom Ain't Dead.

Ostrom is one of those guys who you rarely get to see footage of, but when it drops, you cherish it haha. Recently Eric stumbled upon these clips, and had no idea they even existed haha. It is some pretty old footage, but it still shreds. Check it out. Rail ride 180 heel out was nastyy.

Nitro Circus Live Promo

So MTV is going to be airing episodes of Nitro Circus, featuring footage from the Australia/New Zealand  Live tour.  As you may remember Andrew "Scoots" Broussard was able to be a part of that tour, so I'm guessing that means there'll be a bit of scooter riding on tv.  Cool stuff, progression for sure.

Short Box Sesh with Jason Griffiths and Dan Barrett

Sorry about the lack of videos lately, I've had limited internet access while staying at Jeffrey Mroz's house.  Anyways, this is a video on a box and a rail from Jason Griffiths and Dan Barrett.  Yet another insane grindbox edit, filmed in 20 minutes.

841 Tribal Wheels Promo (Luke Painter joins 841)

A few posts below this you can read up on some more information about 841's latest wheel. We recently got this promo video as well. Also you'll notice Luke Painter is the rider in the video, who was recently added to the 841 Team. Check it.

Blunt Europe Tour Fall 2011 Edit - Part 1

Blunt Pro Scooters had their pro riders from Europe on a tour for a while now. Hitting up all kinds of cities over there. I've released small previews of each stop in the past on ISB, and now we got Part 1 of the full edit. The Blunt riders in Europe have so many various styles, it really makes this video fun to watch. Check it out below, and look out for Part 2 which we will be releasing here on Inside-Scooters in the near future.

Stefan Hefner Lucky Opus Part.

I'm writing this twenty minutes before its actually out, and I'm stoked.  Stefan has no fear when it comes to rails and hucking it down the gnarliest gaps and sets.  Yet he still balances it out with some pretty tech tricks. Second to last clip might be the craziest thing to go down at Hollywood High (not that the last clip isn't insane though haha).  Great part.

KMAC- Ask Me

This is a music video made by Tyler Garcia and his production company, Go4Broke.  Tyler filmed and edited the whole thing.  Kmac is the guy who films Tyler riding scooters so thats kinda cool.

Stefan Hefner- Raw Hype

Hyped am I now.  Stef kills it, I definitely cannot wait for his Lucky Opus part to drop tonight.  Its gonna be so good.

841 Tribal Wheels Now Shipping

The 841 Tribal wheel is it latest design and is made of high rebound urethane with a durometer of 88A and features a solid aluminum core, which is essential for serious pro riders.

Anthony "Twan" Bustos

Wow, gotta give this guy major credit for what he's done.  Its so hard recognizing you have a problem and going ahead to change it for yourself.  I'm happy for him, and hope he only continues this healthy lifestyle.  

Nick Donatelli Introduces, theEMP

What are we lacking in the sport, that other sports got more than enough of? Clothing and Apparel companies. I am a firm believer that if you are gonna make a company like this, it helps a lot to actually be a rider. That is one thing you won't have to worry about with theEMP. Check out the video below to get all the details on theEMP from Nick himself.

Also be sure to check Inside-Scooters for all your news, updates, and information on theEMP, cause we will be posting it all here first.

Go hit up their facebook..... now.


Scooter Zone's Matt Somers How To: Frontside Overcrook

Matt Somers got his first taste of doing "How To's" when he took a trip down to California. Returning back home didn't stop Matt from continuing to make How To videos for other riders. He has been knocking a lot of them out lately. Below is his latest one, on how to do one of the least done grinds in the sport, the Frontside Overcrook. Check it out below.

Bjorn Lillegraven Venture Promo

We don't have many riders on ISB from Norway, but now we at least got one. Bjorn recently made this video for the Venture Scooter Crew out in Norway. He definitely has some skills, but he can still improve on a lot of stuff. Good to see some videos from riders from countries like Norway that we don't see much from. Check it out.

Trevor Fitzpatrick- Life Goes On

This kid definitely has got the skills.  But do they pay the bills?  I think if he gets out to ride a bigger variety of places, and cleans it up a little bit, they will.  I also kept thinking Stefan Hefner was in the video cause of the haircut haha.

Blunt AOSv2 Street Deck Now Available at Ozziez

Ozziez is now carrying the Blunt Pro Scooters AOSv2 Street Deck. This is a big change from the Blunt decks that people have been riding.

Roy Saladin

This young shredder is from Corona, New York.  He's got a pretty nicely balanced style, some park and street tricks.  I definitely called the 5 cab at the end.  Good stuff, it'll be cool to see where he is in a couple years.

Scoot Documentary by Danny Roberts

Danny Roberts is one of my favorite riders from the UK. Very original rider, and has an awesome style. He was assigned to do a documentary on something he did, and naturally he chose to do it on riding. I really like watching documentaries, for the fact that you get to know the rider a bit better.

In this one you also get to know more about Danny's filmer, and the hardships of riding and living in The UK. Check out the video below.

Thanks to Matt Wiles for emailing this to me.

Phoenix Reventon Deck Review


The Reventon deck is latest deck to be put out by Phoenix Pro Scooters.  I had been seeing pictures of it throughout its development on Phoenix’s facebook and wanted to get my hands on one from the get-go.  So eventually I hit up Tom Floyd and he made it happen.  Before I get started on this review, I’d like to note that it is pronounced “ree ven ton”.

Of the three sizes of the Reventon deck, I received the smallest- 4.25” wide by 19.5 long.  4.25 is probably my favorite width…19.5 long on the other hand is a little cramped, but pretty standard compared to most decks.  For bigger riders, two other sizes are available- 4.65 by 20.5, and 5.25 by 22 (which is only available as the Stan Smirnoff Signature deck).  Speaking of signature decks, a Dan Barrett signature deck is also available, in the 4.25 by 19.5 size. 

The deck comes with a Switchblade brake and FSA Orbitz integrated headset, so setting up the deck is a breeze.  Integrated headsets are definitely superior to other threadless headsets.  So easy to set up, so smooth, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want one.  So that’s a huge plus with this thing.  The Reventon has 6 degrees of concave which is a little weird at first, but then becomes awesome.  More concave really helps out with gripping the deck.  Continuing the trend from past Phoenix decks, the Reventon has a headtube angle of 82.5.  Pretty standard angle, I dig.  Whips are plenty easy with that angle.

What I also noticed right away when riding the Reventon, was its flat bottom and squared sides.  This is a huge advantage for me, being a rider who likes to do a lot of grinds.  Pretty much every rail grind is so much easier on this deck.  Fingerwhips are cake too.  Probably the biggest bummer with this deck, that I’ve found, are the back dropouts…pegs (at least Tilt Chromos) cannot fit flush, and as the deck has a taper at the back, icepicks aren’t possible…so that can be a problem if you’re into those.  However, Tom has informed me that he is working on pegs which will be compatible with the Reventon.  Pegs should also work with a spacer too.

The Reventon’s aesthetic is one that most people either love or hate.  Personally I didn’t think it looked as big and bulky as other people had led me to believe.  The headtube is rather bigger than on the previous Phoenix deck, but it is supposed to be stronger, so that’s cool.  The headtube also features a cutout in the front, as you can see in the top picture.  This deck comes in four colors- orange, green, gunmetal grey, and black, which is what I have. 

Overall, for being the most expensive deck on the market (MSRP $259.95), the Reventon packs quite a punch.  Not only does it feature the flat bottom and sides, but it is rated to withstand over 4000 lbs of pressure before breaking.  If you like District decks for their stability when grinding, but want a stronger ride, or are a bigger rider wanting more footroom, this balanced deck is the one for you.  Great stocking stuffers for those parents out there ;)

Dissidence 3rd Anniversary Ghetto Box Edit 2

Damn, I loved this. It is really sick to see so many different riders all riding one obstacle. You really get to see the different skills and styles of the riders in the video. Sooo good. Everyone killed it here. I guarantee you've never seen a box get destroyed this hard before..

MGP Ride Day at San Clemente

Got any plans for this Sunday? If not, and if you are in the So Cal area, head down to the San Clemente skatepark for a ride day by MaddGear. It is also sponsored by another company here on Inside-Scooters, Gryndo Scooters. Ride days are always a good time so get out there and have some fun.

Lil Jon Opus Section

...Man, what can I say about Lil Jon? You ever hear the expressions, "Balls to the wall" or "Go for broke" ? That's what I think when I see Lil Jon ride. He just goes for it. It's for that fact that his riding is so fun to watch. Not to mention he's got some really underrated skills in the streets. I really loved his Opus section.

Remebering Chris Gribble

Last year on December 9th, Chris Gribble, a local New Jersey rider was killed in a car accident. As most people know New Jersey has a really strong scene, and it was due to riders like Chris who helped build that scene.

Our community is not as big as we like to think it is. Which is why a lot of us form such strong friendships with each other. Sometimes with people we haven't even met before. Which is why when we lose a rider like this, it really does impact all of us. Chris was one hell of a rider that's for sure. He was one of the first riders that started doing barrel rolls. Not to mention one of the first riders who took backflips to street, and out of parks, back in 2007.

Take a small amount of time out of your day today to remember Chris Gribble. Doesn't matter if you knew him or not. He was a rider, just like you are. That's all we need to know, to know that he is someone that will truly be missed.

RIP Chris.

Below are some words from one of Chris's friends, Mohamed Alsulaibi..

"Chris Gribble was a great kid i looked up to him so much when i was younger and he really helped become the rider i am today.

This December 9th will be his one year since he past away so i just wanted you all to see this video of him and know that if it wasn't for Chris the East coast Scooter scene would never be like this.

I love you man and i miss you rest easy bro <3" - Mohamed Alsulaibi

RAW Weekend

This is a pretty sick video featuring a bunch of French riders.  JD again killing the boxes...some pretty good mini riding too.  That downside double peg grind was ace.

Michael Knudson Scooter Check

Blunt Pro Scooter's rider, Michael Knudson recently got his new deck, and made this scooter check shortly after. The deck he is riding is the new AOSv2 Street Deck. Needless to say, the deck looks amazing. I would really like to see decks with flat sides become a new standard with most decks. I literally don't see a downside to it. If you guys got a problem with them, let us know in the comments. Check out Michaels' Blunt complete set up below.

Kick at Monster

A few Aussie riders throw down in this video at Monster Skatepark.  Coedie goes so hard...back lip heel, then those huge transfers...not too many riders can match him in both park and street, if any at all.

Justin Robertson Scooter Check

Scooter Zone's one and only rider in Canada is Justin Robertson, and for good reason. In the past two years Justin took his riding to a new level. Throwing down intense tricks down some really gnarly gaps and sets. His tech side of his riding got really strong as well. Check out the scooter he's currently riding right now, and some clips of him afterwards.

Vibe Mixtape: Volume One

This is a video from a crew/brand out in Canada.  You may (or may not) recognize OG Travis House shredding it up.  Other riders include Mitch and Nathan Gibbons, and Kryon Power.  Some really cool clips in here, as well as nice filming.  Looking forward to more edits from these guys some day.

Tom Mattingly Mini 4

A minivideo, whats that?  Tom shows us what in this edit.  This kid is developing a pretty cool style and it'll be interesting to see where he's at in a couple of years.  Good stuff, loving the OG TRV footage haha.

Scooter Hut Generosity.

Scooter Hut have posted a status on facebook announcing that they'll be donating $2 to the Cancer council of Australia for every like on that particular status. They'll be checking the status in exactly 23 hours from now (10pm AEDT), and keeping the likes at that final number.

This is a great cause, It takes two clicks of a mouse (One to like ScooterHut's facebook, one to like the status) It's almost inhumane NOT to do it.

Follow this link ; Scooter Hut Facebook and like the status.

Envy Pro Scooters Max Peters and Brendon Smith NZ Tour

Recently Brendon and Max from Envy Pro Scooters, known as Blunt Pro Scooters here in the US, went on a trip to New Zealand. They hit up various street spots, and skateparks, and got some really good footage. Yes, you heard that right there are a good amount of street clips in this edit from these two park riders. By the way, the last clip in the video, by Max, that's something I've wanted to see done for a long time. Insane.

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Isaac Coy

This video doesn't have a ton of crazy tricks but the riding is super clean and solid.  Overall the video has a cool little vibe/concept goin on.  And I'm starting to see a little bit of Conor Davidson in this kid.  Nice edit.

FSP Turnpike Series- Oil City Comp

Here's a video of the 2nd stop of the Freestyle Scooter Products Turnpike Series, held at Oil City in New York.       Looks like a fun little comp, congrats to the winners!

10 Man Mega Montage by Matt Somers


In the post under this one, people are arguing non stop about the Park vs Street stuff...

Everyone chill out and enjoy this 10 Man Mega Montage created by Scooter Zone's Matt Somers. This is super fun to watch, you don't see videos like this anymore. Great mix of park and street. Enjoy it guys.

Friday, December 2, 2011

Brendon Smith Envy Web Edit

You've probably seen this already on Facebook but I suppose I might as well post it.  This video features Brendon doing what he does best- combos for days on quarterpipes and boxes.  The only thing I want to say about it is that I wish Brendon would progress in other ways than air tricks.  But its cool, thats what works best for him and why he's gotten to where he is today.

Blake Bailor Opus Part

The Opus parts continue with Blake's. I think Blake has my favorite section so far. I've always loved his style, and he has some really good rail clips in this section. Love the last two clips, you don't see people get super creative with rails like that too often, so it was definitely good. Check out Blake's Opus part below.

Boxes Limited Facebook Questions with Brandon Kilbury Part 2

Boxes Limited rider Brandon Kilbury sits down for part 2 of his Facebook questions. This again, will be an ongoing thing that Boxes will be doing with their riders. In part 2, BK discusses the Mega Ramp, along with some footage of him hitting the beast. I've known BK since he was literally just a kid, and hearing him answer these questions, and seeing how he's grown up and progressed in the sport is really awesome. Check out the video below.

Big Ron "6 Foot, 7 Foot"

Ron "Big Ron" Sharpe's height is definitely somewhere between 6 and 7 feet, how fitting that they use that Lil Wayne song.  Swagbangs in the middle of a line...heelwhip to boards...switch whip sexchange to of the craziest riders to watch for sure.

Skatebarn's Impact on Scootering as We Know It

As you might have heard now, Skatebarn West in Renton, Washington is finally closing its doors.  Devin Hohlbein put this video together of interviews with Kingsley Okocha and Jake O'Donnell, as well of some riding footage to better illustrate the impact SBW had on our sport.  Devin himself worked at the shop in the upstairs of Skatebarn, called Mothership Distribution, so he knows firsthand what SBW means to riders in Washington.

I've been to the Barn a few times myself for competitions...each time being one of the most intense competitions I've gone to.  I'll never forget the epic battle between Tyler Bonner and Dakota Shuetz at the last stop of the Razor Exposed tour, in which Tyler put together pretty much a perfect competition run to be crowned Tour King.  While the park itself wasn't exactly one of my favorites, I'm definitely bummed that its closing.  It gave so many kids a place to ride during the rainy days in the NW, I'm sure it will be sorely missed.
