Proto Box Edit 2012

This is a little disappointing simply because only riders Chema Cardenas and Brandon Kilbury are in it.  Regardless, the riding is super good.   Such different styles from these guys, its a wild contrast.  Also, check out BK's new sig deck at the beginning.

Dylan Kasson "The Almanac" Interview

It started about a year ago, and all it took was a Flip camera. That was when Dylan started producing the Almanac videos. Since then he has built quite the following of people that enjoy watching the videos, and it's only continuing to grow. To be able to get an inside look at some of the stuff these guys get into is almost impossible to not enjoy. I recently caught up with Dylan Kasson to discuss The Almanac.

So when did you decide to start doing videos like this? Was there any
specific reason?

Dylan: I saw a lot of people in the skateboard world doing it. Mainly a photographer named Joe Brook. He would make edits with a point and shoot camera every time he would go on filming trips with skate teams. They were called fatbacks. These videos were so interesting because I feel like most people are sort of "actors" when they have video parts, even with the lifestyle footage it is highly glamorized so it is nice to see the absolute truth.

Yeah dude, I really get that last part. Now for those who don't know what are all these videos filmed with?

Dylan: They are filmed with a standard definition and high definition flip
camera and a iphone 4.

I feel like these videos show a different side to the sport. A lot of the
riders featured in the videos are known for being some of the sports top
riders, yourself included. Though in the videos, you get to see everyone
pretty much just chilling, and get a better feel for who they are. Would you
say that's true?

Dylan: Yes of course. Even though we take filming real clips very seriously,
there has to be enjoyable moments in between. But when the real
cameras come out its a completely different attitude.

The first ever Flip video Dylan made.

california flip cam edit from Dylan on Vimeo.

We see a lot of Tyler Wheeland, Yourself, and Alex Steadman in the
videos. You guys are all obviously pretty close friends, how fun is it to
get together with these guys and film some of these clips?

Dylan: We all just work so well together. Whenever I go out west if it is
that crew I get so much stuff done and have the funnest time possible.

There have been a lot of riders featured in the various different Almanac
videos. From Jordan Jasa, Josh Young, and Tommy Daddano, to Lil Jon, Evan
Yamada, and even Jackson Manzie. Are there any guys that you want to get
into the Almanac videos in the future? Or is it more of a, "Whoever I'm
with at that time" kind of thing?

Dylan: It is more whoever I am with. I don't take these edits to the point
that I would seek things out to be in them. That is what makes them
good, the lack of planning at all.

The Almanac #5 Midwest Style

the almanac #5 from Dylan on Vimeo.

While these videos aren't as popular right now, they are definitely going
to be soon, and already are with a lot of people. What do you think it is
about videos that just honestly show a bunch of randomness from various
people, that have people so interested?

Dylan: I think one of the only reasons is that a lot of people look up to the
people in the video so if they put out any type of video whether it be
riding or not people are going to watch it. It is hard to understand
why some things in the videos are funny because they are inside jokes
only the people in the video know, but I mostly make the videos so we
can all look back on it and laugh.

In one of these we get to see you shoot some guns. And there have been
quite a few other moments, where you had to have been glad you had the
camera on you. Do you just keep it on you at all times? And have there been
any moments that you wished you would have had it on you, but didn't?

Dylan: I carry my flip camera everywhere with me. Absolutely no exceptions.
When I am in California we have multiple backup flip cams because we
have smashed a few. When it is dark out I switch to my iPhone because
it has a light on it.

Since this is about to get posted up on ISB, would you be stoked, or not
stoked at all, to see kids start imitating or creating their own "Almanac"
style videos?

Dylan: They already have. When I was at the San Diego competition this year
some little 12 year old kid came up to me and told me he loved the
almanac edits. This blew me away because I thought me and the people
who were in the edits were the only people that watched them. I like
to watch other peoples edits though. It is cool to see something
inspired by something I started and then people build on that. I think
my only concern is one that people have about my videos, they don't
understand some of the jokes but that is inevitable. I know Jordan
Jasa makes some good flip cam edits for sure though.

Damn dude that's sick. Do you got any last words you want to say to anyone who has watched, or is about to start watching these videos?

Dylan: Don't take these seriously they are made for a good laugh.

The Almanac #8 West Coast Style (4:16 - 4:27 TWhee = lol)

the almanac #8 from Dylan on Vimeo.

Dude I don't know about you guys, but I kind of want to dig up my old Flip cam and go film a bird or something. Keep checking Inside-Scooters for all future Almanac videos, cause we will be posting all new videos as soon as they drop, here on ISB.

Bobby Pantano Outside The Box

Living in New Hampshire means riding during the winter isn't easy to do with all the snow everywhere. So Bobby pulled his box out into his driveway, and I don't know what that box ever did to him.. But Bobby decided to kill it with this edit.

Some really sick tech in this video from the up and coming, Bobby Pantano.

Something Big Coming from MaddGear..? *Two Videos Up*

What is it? We don't know yet. Keep an eye on their website, and Inside-Scooters to find out!




So it looks like they have revealed their 2012 line up of products. They upgraded on everything they could possibly upgrade on when it comes to their scooters. These are quite easily some of the best complete scooters you can get on the market right now. Combine those products with some of the tours and big plans they have for the Team in 2012 and it is quite apparent it is going to be a hell of a year for Maddgear, and all of their fans.

Matt McKeen Boxes Limited Promo *VIDEO*

Matt McKeen doing what he does for Boxes Limited. Killing it. Street talent at its finest. To anyone that has honestly questioned Matt McKeen when it comes to being one of the leaders not only in the street game, but in this sport. You obviously haven't known Matt long enough to know what he's accomplished, and how he has proven himself time and time again, with sometimes even throwaway edits. His promo below has some ridiculous stuff as well, so definitely check it.

MGP SoCal Tour

MGP recently finished up their tour in So Cal. Tyler Bonner sent this video to me the other night, and you guys will definitely want to check this out. Ryan Williams, Terry Price, and Tyler Bonner, and the other MGP guys all in one video? And with some of the newer riders, Joe Armstrong, Collin DaSilva, Peter Jungsberger, and Jeremy Beau all killing it. Come on, it doesn't get better than that. Check it out below.

Boxes Limited Matt McKeen Signature Shirt Preview

Boxes continues to set the bar when it comes to apparel in our sport, with Matt McKeen's new Signature Shirt set to drop this Friday, along with his new video part. The shirt simply looks bad ass. For more info read below.

Boxes Limited/Lit: Dylan Kasson and Josh Young City Grind Edit

This is sick.  Proto and Boxes' Dylan Kasson tripped it up to Michigan to ride with Tilt's Josh Young, as well as Kelly Zmijewski.  At first I thought they stole the song from my summer park edit but it turned out just to be a crappy remix.  But anyway the riding was dope.  This park seems to be the place to do heelless noseblunt grinds.  Also, word on the street has it that Josh's Tilt edit that he's been working on for over a year is gonna be released soon.  Get hyped for that guys.

Alexis Cuvillier Taravana Scooter Wear Promo

Ok, straight to the point, Alexis kills it in this video. Mix of park and street, with his street clips probably outshining his park clips. It's pretty crazy to see how tech these guys can get, makes me wish some American riders would start stepping up their tech/street game too.

Video Edited by Jeremy Suchet

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Matt Tyler Fall/Winter Edit

This is a video Matt has been working on for a long time, since he completed his summer edit.  Matt is a park shredder and can throw down on the streets as well.  He does some pretty crazy tricks in this, kills heelwhips.  Bummer about the flyout banger though.

Kyle Stead

Another upcoming rider is Kyle Stead.  Kyle hails from Sydney, Australia.  I guess I don't know much else about him but he's got some good clips in this for sure.  That banger is so nutty.

Kenny Griffin VertX Sponsor Video

This is a young kid from northern Cali.  Kenny does some cool stuff and some wack stuff but he definitely has potential.  He's a name to remember in the future for sure.  And if you don't remember it, he will make sure you see his name...trust me on that haha.

Raymond Warner: Plain and Simple

Raymond is a close friend of mine, and someone who I really respect in this sport. He has a really great outlook on everything, and it shows in this video. Raymond has been killing it lately in the competition scene, finishing top 3 in almost every contest he's been entering. And let's face it, with the competition today, that ain't easy.

The below video was filmed and edited by Chris Blanton, who did a really good job. Raymond breaks down how he got started in the sport, and why this sport means a lot to him. Last few clips in the video are just mind blowing. And yeah for the record that was 7, over a box.

Benjamin Friant "Clips in the Trash"

Some more insane footage from one of the world's best riders.  This is all footage from the end of 2011.  Super crazy park and street lines.  I feel like the backflip to can plant would be really painful on your knee/ankle...BenJ is just a superman.

The Box Is Back *Video Up*

Ok, when I heard that Ryan Gould, Nick Darger, Raymond Warner, Dan Holm, and Matt Somers were going to be making a box edit, I got stoked. After watching the edit, I immediately had to watch it again. These guys straight killed it. All of them ride for Scooter Zone, and Matt and Dan were here from the East Coast. Just complete tech madness, and I always enjoy that rare Nick Darger footage. Watch and enjoy.

Erik Feenstra/Josh Nathan Iphone Edit

I wouldn't normally post a riding video filmed by a cell phone, but this isn't normal riding.  This was filmed last August...Still so crazy.

Boxes Limited Facebook Q and A's with Dylan Kasson part 2

You guys can find Part 1 a little bit below this post, but here is Part 2 for all that were waiting for it. Really love these videos, and I see nothing but good things happening constantly for Boxes. Sky is the limit for this company, and its riders. Love the questions asked in this one as well, and Dylan's answers were pretty spot on. I find myself really interested in hearing riders opinions on some of the stuff that was asked in here.

ShopECX District and Eagle-Sport Sale! Plus Addict Products Coming Soon!

Matt McKeen "Warmups"

I don't care who you are...these are not warm ups.  Get to see that hurricane from the Boxes ad, so nuts.  Switch whip down that gap by the way.  His Boxes promo is still yet to come out, I hope we get to see some "good" footage in that haha.

Florian Toegel Unseen 2011 Footage

Florian is releasing all of this unseen footage, most of which he says is throwaway. I dunno about that, cause some of this stuff is pretty tight. Especially considering all the footage is 8 months - 1 year old. Florian will be starting fresh in 2012 with new footage, can't wait to see it.

Trevor Fitzpatrick VertX Sponsor Video

Trevor has a lot of potential.  He shows that he definitely has a lot of skill in this video (last line is pretty unreal).  I just want to fast forward and see what hes doing a year or two down the line.

Dom Marconi VertX Park Video

Here is some throwaway footage that Dom, VertX's team manager, released recently.  I want to see the real footage.

Whats going on with Inside today?  Well today, like many other websites, we are "blacking out" (or just showing this post today) our content to protest bills being proposed by the US Congress, as well as to educate others on what these proposed bills would do if passed.

The Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) are proposed bills aiming to end online copyright infringement.  If they go through, US law enforcement would be given the power to shut down websites hosting or linking to copyrighted content, basically censoring the Internet.

Why does this matter to you? Inside Scooters is a website that would be effected, due to the videos with copyrighted songs that we embed daily for you guys to see. Not only that, but websites like Google, Reddit, and Facebook would be ordered to hide links to copyrighted material, or even go down completely.

Want to do something about it? Sign this petition to vote no on PIPA and SOPA hosted by Google- https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/ If you want to learn more, you can check out these links:



Ben Duncan Summer Mix

Ben Duncan may be Australian, but his riding definitely stands out from the typical Aussie riding.  More Friendly style than flippidy do dah, which is nice to see.  Some good stuff for sure.

Boxes Limited Facebook Q and A's with Dylan Kasson part 1

We've seen the Boxes Limited Facebook Q and A's before, with Brandon Kilbury. Now we get to hear from one of the most opinionated, and at times, outspoken riders in the sport, Dylan Kasson. Despite what one may think of Dylan, it is impossible to deny his skill on a scooter. He faced a lot of adversity starting out in the sport and rose above it all to become the rider he is today. Check out Part 1 of Dylans Facebook Questions below.

p.s. Yes there is some DK footy in there as well.

Mohamed Alsulaibi Throwaway

This is all Mohameds throwaway footage, as he gets ready for his 2012 Edit. I know people are going to comment on his stance, but at this point I don't think it will be changing anytime soon, haha. Guess we will find out with his 2012 Edit. Some of this throwaway is pretty sick though.

Tyler Clayton Edit

Supposedly Tyler has been riding a week... yes a WEEK. He rides for Over The Top, and I am sure he will be getting looked at by some other companies after this. Video speaks for itself.

Team Razor USA at Twisted Shop in Los Alamitos

LIT'd: Roman Smith

Roman Smith AKA RJ is one of Josh Young's close riding buddies.  It definitely shows in his style and the number of awesome spots shown in this video.  Josh pretty much fawns over this kid, and has trained him well.  Oh, and he's just 13 years old.

Terry Price 2011 Recap

Terry hasn't really had a real video part in a long time.  So this is pretty cool to see, a bunch of clips filmed over the past year, from Woodward to everywhere he went on tour with Madd.  All those icepick combos were so nuts.

Kingsley Okocha

This is a bunch of footage that Philip Long edited for Kingsley.  Kingy's riding has progressed a whole lot over the past couple years, he really shreds street (rails in particular) now.  Hope to see him drop more footage over the next year.

Nick Donatelli: Winter ScooterZone/The EMP Edit

Nick Donatelli rides for ScooterZone as well as his own clothing company, theEMP. This stuff is just throwaway footage but it's still super good. You can check out theEMP's apparel at theEMP.bigcartel.com.

Jona Humbel ECX Promo

Yeah, this kid has been riding for I'm pretty sure less than 2 years. I wish I progressed half as fast as Jona does. From his driveway box videos hes put out earlier this year I could tell he was gonna be good. Definitely can't wait to see him a year or two down the line.

Jon Zegarra 2011 Footy

Such nice, clean riding as always from Jon.  And his tech his only getting better as well, who else is gonna feeble smith 3 whip that nicely?  Last trick came outta nowhere too.  Check out the vimeo link if the video is blocked for you.

"Competition Day" ft Zig Short, Max Peters, and Mitch Baldry by Phillip Long

Shot and edited by Phillip Long, these three ELYTS riders give you some insight on how the competition day was for them. SD6 was one of the biggest competitions to date, so it's cool to see what these guys thought about it. It's too bad we didn't get to hear from other riders as well. Check it out below.

MGP Uk Christmas Parties + MGP West Coast Signing Pictures

MGP isn't just big in Australia, it's big everywhere, The UK included. The MGP UK Team is stacked with talent, and in the below video you'll get to see some of that. They recently made this edit made up of the MGP UK riders + The Scoot Mag guys who covered the events. You really get a feel for just how much the kids out their love MaddGear. Some bangers in here as well, and Terry Price footage which is always a treat.

Also recently, Ryan Williams and Terry Price of MGP Aus and MGP UK have been in California, and they've been quite busy. Both rode in the SD6 competition, and they also did a signing at West Coast Ride Shop. Below are some photos of that, and it doesn't get any better than Terry Price in a Penguin Hat, does it?

Keep checking Inside-Scooters for all news and updates relating to MaddGear.

Friendly Throws

Two Riders on the Come Up

These two guys are on their way up in the sport. One of them is a New York native, and the other rides frequently with Jon Devrind, one of my favorite riders to watch.

First up let's look at 14 year old Evan Barba. Riding with Jon Devrind has definitely paid off, and you can see it in his style. One thing that worries me sometimes though, with riders that ride so much with one person, is that they become mini clones of that rider. Let's hope that doesn't happen with Evan. His riding is clean and smooth, and you can tell he's only going to get better.

Next up we got a video featuring a rider from NY, Ro Capote. This video was edited and sent to me by his friend Bryant Colon, and I'm glad he sent it in. Ro rides both park and street in the video, and even a little bit of driveway footy. I definitely think he excels in the street department over park, and I hope he puts out a serious street edit in the future. Really raw style. Check it out.

Dakota Schuetz Throwaway

Dakota is considered by most the #1 Ranked rider in the world, when it comes to competitions that is. To put it simply, if he enters a contest, there is a good chance he will take home the win. Hate on it all you want, but it's been proven time and time again. Anyways this video, is not Dakota riding in a competition. This is footage from his last trip to Las Vegas. It is all throwaway footage. Check it below.

p.s. You're probably going to want to mute the song..

I take no responsibility for what is said in the comments that will be under this video. Keep it clean guys lol.

Jona Humbel Six Trick Fix

Jona says he broke his butt cheek while filming this, so that's why we don't see a banger at the end. But he still definitely kills it in this Six Trick Fix on his grind box. Really like watching Jona ride.

Remember guys if you wanna do a Six Trick Fix for Inside-Scooters, all you gotta do is the following..

1. Pick an obstacle. (grind box, box jump, ledge, quarter pipe, rail)
2. Film your six best tricks on it.
3. Email it to me! 1Stevent1@gmail.com

2 for 1 Featuring John Verhun New Edit + Mathias Holst and Hugo Svare Edit

Couple of new videos for you guys.

One of them is from a pretty unknown rider, John Vehrun from New York. From the looks of this video John can whip and spin both ways, and ride a bit of park and street. He has a long ways to go still, but this edit shows a lot of promise.

Next up is Denmark riders Mathias and Hugo. They get really tech in this little edit, and show off some smooth grind combos. I'm starting to really like watching Mathias's riding. Check it below.

Kirk Svensson Sky High Promo

I usually don't get stoked on videos of my kids that I didn't film/edit, and so when this came out last week I was a little bummed.  But I watched this again today and was hyped.  I actually did film a pretty good portion of this. Filming Kirk can be a bit of a challenge but with a few words of encouragement he'll usually put it down.

Jeremy Beau Super 60

Haven't had a Super 60 up in a while...so Jeremy Beau decided to make one and send it in.  I haven't heard a whole lot from this kid in a long time, but it looks like he's on Maddgear now?  Still looks like hes shredding the ramps, classic J-Beau style.

Brenden Orton

This kid has a pretty sick park style.  Whips both ways so well, and was that a front scooterflip I saw?  I had to watch this without sound so even without music it was an enjoyable edit.

Razor ProXX, ProXXX, and Black Label 3.0 now at TwistedScoots

TwistedScoots has their hands on the new Razor Pro Models. These include the Razor ProX, ProXX, ProXXX, and the Black Label 3.0. You can check out pics of these below, and they are for sale from TwistedScoots right now starting at 89.99.

Happy New Year from ShopECX

Recently the ECX Team took a trip to Maryland to go to the Charm City Skatepark. You get all these guys in one spot, and you end up with a nice edit. I always love seeing Jon's riding. Everyone on ECX shreds pretty hard in their own way. Check out the edit below.

This video features Blunt Europe rider Julian Zieger. It's pretty much all park in the edit, so if you're not down with that, you can skip it. He has some sick tech stuff, but he does a few too many bri flips in my opinion. Still a good edit. Check it.


Here's an edit Tommy Daddono filmed at Asylum skatepark featuring some of Sky High's riders.  Its so good to see Tommy back in the filming game. He's one of the best in our sport, HD or SD.  I'll always prefer to see him with a VX in his hands, though.

Mathias Holst Park Edit

When you take Elyts AM and Skatepro rider, Mathias Holst, and stick him into a park, this is the edit you get. Mathias is primarily a street rider, which you can easily see in these clips. Some really good riding, and you also get to see the Addict Deck in action. Check it out below.

Thanks to Jakub Wolk for the video, and filming and editing.

Project Swiss Cheese 3

I haven't even watched this yet but I know it's going to be good.  Featuring Friendly and friends.

Kaleb Kier Ten for 10

At only ten years old, it's sick to see Kaleb ripping like this. I like seeing younger kids that show real potential. Good to see that the sport has a bright future with the existence of all these young up and comers. You guys can catch Kaleb at the SD6 contest this weekend. For now check out his Ten for 10.

SD6 Flyer

The 6th edition of the San Diego Scooter Competition is going down this Saturday.  I am so bummed not to be able to be there.  Pros from all over the country (and the world?) will be there so if you want to watch/ride with/bro out with the best, I suggest you make plans to attend.

VertX Pro Sponsorship Competition

US team manager for VertX Dom Marconi recently informed me of an ongoing competition to find riders to put on the team.  Like the Lucky Flow team competition, but VertX is actually looking for riders to sponsor on the Professional level.  VertX hopes to find 5-6 riders to put on the team.  What exactly are they looking for?  What do you need to do to be considered for the team? Read on:

Requirements are-

- No longer than 3 minutes
- Uploaded to Youtube
- Title must be *Insert name* VertX Sponsorship Video
- Link to video emailed to vertxcomp@live.com
- Must be sent in by February 7th

Along with the video, riders must submit a brief resume including:

- Name
- Age
- City and state
- How long you have been riding
- Why you want to be added to the team
- Why you should be chosen for the team

Dom also had this to say:

- I better not get any emails with major grammatical errors EI dont tok lyke dis
- Make sure you take your time with your resume as well as your video. BE BROFESSIONAL
- The videos will not only be judged on riding, but on editing and filming. We would prefer the team to not be promoted by kids filming on their cell phones.
- I don't want to see an all-street or an all-park video (unless you are really good at one). I like to see a mix of riding. (Once again, unless you are very skilled in one or the other area).
- Have fun and show me what you got! This is a great opportunity and the stakes are high!

Seems like a good opportunity if you've been looking to get sponsored, good luck guys!

The Muffin Crew Last Clips of 2011

I really love watching videos from The Muffin Crew. Maybe it's the fact that they're from France, and French riders shred, hard. Either way I'm sure you guys will like this video. These are the last clips filmed in December 2011. Time for a new year for these guys, and lots of new footage!

P.S. You will also notice a clip of Thomas O. Yes, for those who might be wondering, that is Thomas Obadia aka Bibito! He is back on scooters. What up.

Boxes Limited Welcomes Its Newest Rider....

Boxes is not kidding around.. The Team of riders they have representing them and their apparel is no joke. They got some of the best talent in the world, and with the addition of their newest rider, they are only further seperating themselves from other companies. Read the promo below to learn about their newest rider.

Boxes Limited Introduces Chema Cardenas to the Team!

Boxes Limited would proudly like to introduce Chema Cardenas! Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Chema has remained relatively unknown in the Scooter Industry, but with his recent Proto Scooters part being released online, plus this new Welcome Promo. You can start expecting to see a lot more Chema in the coming year!

After watching that edit it's clear that Chema is setting a new bar in the street scene. He brings such a raw style with his riding, that it makes it almost too addicting to watch. With hops that are pretty much unrivaled, and balls the size of grapefruits.. You got yourself a rider who easily sits among the top 5 street riders in the sport, hands down.

ECX Team Riders Six Trick Fix

Recently some of the riders over at ECX filmed some Six Trick Fix's. Check em all out below. I don't know about you guys, but I'd like to see Jon refilm one, on a nice manual pad or ledge! And where is teh HepGreg?!

Brandon Kilbury GoPro clips

BK strapped a GoPro to his helmet and hit up Talent Skatepark for a session, and this is the result.  GoPro videos make everything look so easy. They also make me want to puke.
