Envy Pro Scooters: Woodward 2012 Edit

Recently the whole Envy US Team got together for Woodward West 2012 and Brendon Smith came over from Australia along with Charles Padel who came from France. Sometimes I wonder what happens when you get a group of riders like the Envy Team together, and someone films it. I guess this is what happens. Just a really good blend of styles from all of the riders throwing down hammers non stop. The last clips were just ridiculous.

FSP filmer Anthony Crespo filmed this video of a bunch of East Coast shredders in January.  Names like Jon Reyes, Dan Barrett, Joe Armstrong...all riding Black Diamond skatepark in Philadelphia.  Check it out.

Cam Ward Fatal Clothing Day Video

Cam Ward recently got sponsored by Fatal Clothing. Cam is the first scooter rider that Fatal has approached with a sponsorship... well, kind of. Upon looking at Fatal's website, and seeing some of the Motocross guys they sponsor, I saw an OG who I haven't heard about in a long time, Dereck Beckering. The name might not be familiar to newer riders, but older riders definitely know about Dereck. Props to Cam for the sponsorship. Check out the day video below.

Seventh Sky

I don't even know this kid's name but this was filmed in New Zealand and New Caledonia.  He spent a year on this.  You can definitely tell he put a lot of time into it, which is awesome. 

Zig Short Scooter Check

Finally got a scooter check from Zig Short. Zig rides quite a few different parts from a lot of different companies, so he definitely has a diverse scooter. Though if it's holding up to all the abuse he puts it through, they gotta be some pretty reliable parts. Check out Zig's scooter check below.

Cam Ward Throwaway

If you know Cam, you know that he makes all of his tricks look absolutely effortless. He does exactly that in this throwaway video with some clips from Woodward. Just casually boosting hips and quarters like it's no big deal. I'm interested to check out Cam's next real edit. I'd like to see him put some serious time into it, because when it comes to being an all around rider, Cam is up there with some of the best. Check out his throwaway below.

Kaleb Kier 10 Year Old Clips Edit

Kaleb's birthday is tomorrow. So he figured it's time to get rid of all of his older clips. Now since we happen to be right on top of a post with Paxton and Zig doing their thing on the mic, I figure it's time for people to hear Kaleb spit those hot bars! Haha. Kaleb opens this video with a flow that has some swagger. Do I see a battle between Paxton and Kaleb on the horizon?!! Definitely an up and coming rider, and at only 11 years old come tomorrow...he has a great future ahead of him.

Paxton Swygard vs Zig Short in a Rap Battle (Unprivated Video)

Someone else uploaded the video, be sure to check this quick in case it gets taken down again.  Way to go Paxton haha!  Better luck next time Zig.

AlexBari- First of 2012

Alex is a rare breed, that of the New Jersey street rider.  Mostly rides gaps and sets but there's also a lot of more techier clips in this. 

I wish people would stop using this song.

Elmer/Hep Greg Oil City Rail Sesh

In the midst of all these box videos its cool to see people focus on rails instead.  Elmer and Hep Greg did just that with this video, doing some sick tricks.  Both of their last tricks are so wild.

Woodward West Scooter Camp 2012 Montage

Here's a video from the recent scooter camp at Woodward.  Features Dan Barrett, Jon Zegarra, Devin Pelphrey, Angel Lefranc as well as Josh Toy, who put together the video.  I don't know if i will ever understand heelless noseblunt slides, thats so crazy.

Insight on ELYTS + Team DVD Preview

A lot of people are still kind of wondering what ELYTS is all about. We've seen shirts, we've seen tons of Team riders, and we've seen a lot of Zig breaking down what ELYTS is doing. Now it's time to check out some of the specs on the shoes.

Aside from the shoe preview, we also get to see a little bit of the ELYTS Team DVD. No release date has been dropped for that as far as I now. Check out the vid below.

Trevor Fitzpatrick VertX Website Promo

Tfitz recently got on Vertx, and filmed this in two weeks...I really wanna see him get out of his home area and ride some real street, he'd shred it hard.  Issac Miller and Cooper Klaar are so mad at the last trick.

Skates.Co.Uk New MGP Completes Reviews

Skates.Co.Uk has finished up reviewing the other three brand new MGP Completes. The Ninja Headache, Nitro Extreme She Devil, and Nitro End of Days. They all look pretty cool, but I definitely think they still gotta improve on some things with the deck. Great reviews though by Ben at Skates.Co.UK.

Nitro End of Days

Nitro Extreme She Devil

Nitro Ninja Headache

Paxton Swygard vs Zig Short in a Rap Battle.

EDIT:  It seems that the video has been privated.  Contact Kody Geiger and tell him to unprivate it if you wanna see this.

 I don't know whats worse:  that Zig lost a rap battle to a small ginger boy or that he could barely even figure out how to hold the mic when he seems to deal with them every time he's featured in a video.  Zig did seem to have it flowin towards the end there but he had way more time to prepare than Pax.  I for one welcome our new ginger rapping overlord.

Jake Clark Phoenix Reventon Promo

Wow.  Jake's certainly got the skills, but does he have the steeze?  Check out the video to find out!  Double whip nosemanual was so nuts.  I was stoked on the whip to lipslide too.

Matt Brown Spring 2012

Matt rides for UK's Grit team.  He seems to be a pretty original, upcoming UK rider.  Nice little park video, despite the song jack.  I see potential.

Royce King/Kevin Austin Super 60

Two Aussie riders got together and made a Super 60 recently.  The park was a little wet on the inside, explaining why they mostly rode around the outside.  Regardless, they still put down some cool tricks.  Royce rides for Razor Aus and Kevin is representing Scooterzone.

ELYTS Spring Fashion Preview

Winter is basically over in most parts of California, and the weather is heating up fast. No better time for ELYTS to start releasing all new Tee's and Hoodies. They got a bunch of new products that will be available soon, and you can check them all about below.

You also might notice that ELYTS is putting together one hell of a Team. They got top riders not just from the US, but from all over Europe and Australia as well. You can check out some of the guys below.

Max Peters

Mitch Baldry

Zig Short


Flavio Pesenti

Good looking stuff, on some even better riders. For a full list of ELYTS Team, check out the link below to get an idea on how stacked they are when it comes to talent.


WarScooters: Pro Scooter Headsets

WarScooters is back this week to give a quick run down of headsets and the different kinds that are commonly run with scooters today. Check out the video below, and we will be posting the next in their series of videos next week.

Blunt Europe- Barcelona Street Jam 2012

Here's another video of the action that went down during the Barcelona street jam, this time from the guys on Blunt Europe.  A lot of clips in this have been seen in the other edits but its cool to see different angles.  Tons of ridiculous clips, you already know it.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Ryan McNamara- Grit UK in Cali Edit

Grit UK Pro rider Ryan McNamara recently took a trip out to California to get some riding done. Going along with him was Luke Painter who filmed and edited the video below. Ryan is a park rider, and it really shows in this video. Lots of three trick combos and other ridiculousness. Check out the edit below.

ELYTS @ Gizmania + ELYTS Spring Line Preview

Recently Elyts was on tour in europe. While we were there, Gizmania set up a nice demo for Zig and Benje to come out and ride with the kids. The turnout was huge, lots of kids showed up to show there support. Watch for the added sneak peak of the new line of elyts apparel coming out. Stay Tuned.

Vimeo Link for those out of the US that can't view the video.

Nicolas Kittirath MONKEZ prod 2012 Edit

Nicolas kills it in this video. Tons of tech/street skills throughout the whole thing. If you've seen MONKEZ prod. edits before you know the guys kill it pretty hard. Check out his latest edit below.

James Gee HD Throwaway

These are a few HD clips James Gee filmed while in San Diego recently.  Good stuff.

Dissidence Team Barcelona 2012

Here's some more European shredding.  The Dissidence team was in Barcelona for the street jam and to film, this is a bunch of footage they got.  Such crazy ledge tech from everyone.  Don't miss Jon Reyes in his sick Phoenix basketball jersey either.

Amine Ben Bourahla and Lambert Judith: La Brioche

Sorry about the lack of videos the past few days, I've been super busy riding in Chicago.  Anyways, check out this video of Amine and Lambert, two more guys who are a part of the "La Brioche" crew.  Lambert is also sponsored by Tilt, I'm not sure if Amine has any hookups yet.  If not, he seems well on his way to being sponsored.  Awesome little park day video.

Cory Vanlew "Rolling Up" 2012 Edit

For the lil homies that read ISB. This video does have some marijuana use in it. If you aren't cool with that. You were warned, so don't complain about it in the comments.

Now for everyone else, if you don't know who Cory Vanlew is, I feel bad for you. Like really bad. For all of you who do, you know what this video is going to be all about. Style for miles, and bangers for days. Vanlew is an OG from way back who has never stopped killing it. He's picked up some legit sponsors recently, and all of it has helped mold him into an even better rider. This edit is really sick. One of the best I've seen in a long time. When it comes to riders having style, it seems like almost everyone is trying to immitate someone else. That's never been the case with Cory.

Props Cory. Doin it.

Cory Vanlew "Rolling Up" 2012 Edit from Max Manning on Vimeo.

Kid on the Come Up + OG On the Come Back

Connor Greenleaf doesn't just have a sick last name, he's also starting to get really good on a scooter. He rides with Bobby Pantano, so you know that has to help things when it comes to progression. He has some nice rail clips, and shows a lot of potential over all. Check out his latest edit below.

Filmed and Edited by Bobby Pantano

Next up we got an OG making his return to the sport, Andy Bradford. Andy was one of the first, if not the first rider in the Delaware area to start killing it. Since then the scene has erupted. Andy took a hiatus from riding, and he now has a baby boy and is happily married. But like any true OG, he couldn't stay off his scooter. Here is some throwaway from when Andy first started to ride again, and you can expect a killer part from him in the upcoming SoloChristo DVD.

Skates.Co.Uk In Depth MaddGear Pro VX2 Team Edition Review

Our friend Ben over at Skates.Co.Uk made this video to give you guys a closer look at the new MGP Pro VX2 Team Edition Complete. These literally just hit the market, so if you are in The UK, or anywhere else and are into MaddGear products, you will want to check this out.

War Scooters Scooter Compressions Systems Overview

In this video Kevin from War Scooters explains in depth about the different compressions systems used in the sport. SCS, ICS, and HIC. Again, older riders keep your comments to yourself about the nature of the video.

Believe it or not this sport doesn't revolve around you and your "crews". The sport is primarily made up of younger kids, who will find this kind of information pretty useful. Check out the video below.

Also War Scooters is giving away a FREE Grit Scooters T Shirt, and War Scooters T Shirt to a random winner. All you have to do is comment on this video on the War Scooters Facebook! You can reach the Facebook by clicking the link below.

Barcelona Street Jam- No Gravity Productions

This is an awesome video of the recent Barcelona street jam.  Lots of guys just killing it.  Dan Barrett's tech skills are just ridiculous.  Congrats again to Hunter Bechtle for winning the big 1000 dollar prize.

ECX Signature Wheels Review is already well known not just on the East Coast, but throughout the US for being one of the most legit companies in the sport. They recently started manufacturing their own wheels. Supposedly these wheels are really top of the line in performance and quality. Check out the video review for more information.

Gotta love that 30 day guarantee. Really good stuff.

Boris Germain Axone Promo 2012 ***Another Video Added***

Why do French riders have to be so good?  Pretty much every clip was a banger, from the first to the last.  Definitely check this one out.


For those who haven't seen Boris's Eagle edit, it is definitely a must watch. So check it out below as well.

Jeremy Suchet Without Colors

Jeremy recently turned 18 and wanted to make a video marking this time period in his life, and this is what he came up with. There aren't too many videos done in black and white (and fewer that can actually pull it off) but this one does nicely. Super enjoyable edit. This is also one of the first videos from the new "La Brioche" crew, which consists of a ton of riders from different teams and crews from around France.

Dissidence Scootershop- Go Big Or Go Home

This video left me kinda confused.  Were there only 6 entries?  I know I sent a clip of Issac Miller in for it.  How come Blake's clip wasn't ranked higher?  Oh well.

Grit UK Team- California Trip

Grit Scooters will be bringing over some of their UK pros to ride some California parks and meet the local talent.  This trip is the first step in putting together a Grit Scooters USA team.  Come out to the parks below to meet the team and get your hands on some cool free stuff.  You can follow us our progress and get trip updates with specific times on our facebook page -

Cam Ward: February Edit

I am the only one disappointed in this?  Yes it shows Cam doing a lot of really clean, technical tricks, but I know Cam is better than this.  I haven't even seen the kid ride in person in nearly a year but his consistency is something that has always wow'd me (and helped him place well in competitions).  All this video was was single quarterpipe tricks.  Cam can do a lot more tricks on a lot more obstacles.  I'm not sure why he chose to film just quarterpipe tricks (or why anyone other than Brendon Smith does) but at least they weren't nunchuck tricks.

Kelly Zmijewski

Kelly might have the most pure biker style out there today.  Truckdrivers, icepicks, big transfers...even his hairstyle makes me think of a BMX park shredder.  Really nice, clean edit.  Props to Alex Burnside for the filming and editing.

War Scooters Introduction to "Boot Camp" Video Series

War Scooters is sticking true to their name and releasing a series of videos called, Boot Camp, for younger riders and or riders who want to learn how to keep their scooters dialed, and running good. The "Boot Camp" series will be releasing a new video each week that you can find here on ISB when they drop. You can check out the entertaining "Orientation" video below haha.

Matty Ceravolo 2012 Throwaway

2012 has hardly started but Matty has been well into filming. This is all of the stuff he considers throwaway. Some of those clips seem pretty sick to me though haha. Check out MaddGears's Matty Ceravolo below.

Sam Laney & Zac Michaelides- Shots

No, not shots of the Lil Jon version.  Sam happens to be a rider for, which just started advertising with us.  In this video these guys ride what looks like a DIY street spot, which is pretty cool since the UK street scene is nearly nonexistent.  Sugarcane to whip out at the end is pretty wild.

Skates.Co.UK Joins Inside-Scooters

At Inside we have a LOT of readers from The UK. So it really gets me stoked to have one of the best online shops with us here at ISB. SkatesCoUK specializes in selling pretty much everything scooter related. They got complete scooters from popular brands in the UK and all at good prices.

Slamm Scooters
JD Bug Scooters
Madd Gear Scooters

Among the brands above, you can also find Razor, Grit, Micro, and more all on their website. Just follow the link below.

You can check out some of the SkatesCoUK Team below in a video featuring them and some of their friends. Dude in Purple has a beasty downside whip, and if he gets that 900 at the end it's gonna look pretty sick.

And finally for anyone who might be new to the sport, or for anyone who wants to get a closer look at some of the products on SkatesCoUK and how they operate, just click the link below and check out some of their videos.

Barcelona 2012 Ft. Madis Kukk + Friends

Madis took a trip to Barcelona along with Arco Aria, Harley Harin, and Mikael Parman (and also met up with some other guys) to ride the streets.  These guys aren't quite the heaviest hitters but that doesn't stop this from being an enjoyable video.  Madis's handy camera work and editing is super good.

Scooter Zone Winter Throwaway/ODI Promo

The guys at ScooterZone recently dropped this throwaway edit featuring clips of every rider on the Pro, Am, and Aus teams.  Such a wide variety of styles, really good to watch for sure.  Also those new ODI's sound nice, I've always wanted a softer grip (like Edwins) that lasted as long as ODI's.  Hopefully these new ones do both, I'd definitely get myself a pair.

Tilt Scooters Presents: Josh Young + Interview

Here it is.  Joshua Casey Young has been working on this edit since November 2010.  After criss-crossing the Midwest multiple times, and even venturing out to California,   Josh finally had enough clips filmed to release this.  Josh has been known as one of the best tech street riders for years now, and this video only solidifies that position.  He worked super hard on this edit and I'm stoked to call him my friend.  I asked him a few questions about the edit, and Tilt.

Jordan Jasa:  So you finally got your edit out, after more than a year working on it. How does it feel?

Josh Young:  Feels so crazy man, like this has been my life the past year. Like every weekend was just, where am I going, what spots am I going to hit. Every single weekend, it was either traveling around Michigan or going on a trip to Chicago or Columubs to get clips. Like I'm not kidding I bet I put 20,000 miles on my car just from traveling so much. But yeah it feels kinda good now that I'm starting over. I'm going to film something good for my blog, LIT so that should be done at the end of spring. Then prob a LIT montage with all the homies.

Gettin buck in the Kasson household.

What's your favorite part about traveling and filming?

Just going to different cities and riding right downtown. Its so crazy pushing around downtown Chicago, LA, S.F any huge cities. Its super rad, not that many people get to travel all over like that. Traveling is the best, It seems like I'm always the one going to peoples house's for trips, but i guess its just becuase everybody thinks Michigan is whack or somethin haha. Best part about filming is busting out the old VX1000 and getting shit done right.

You've been involved with Tilt pretty  much since the beginning. Can you explain how you got started with it?

My buddy Adonnis told me about Collin and how he wanted to start a company and I thought it was some whack kid having his dad make bars or something, but Collin called me and that was I'm guessing almost 3 years ago now. Collin has always rode, and was down for making dope ass parts so I helped him out as much as I could and got on Tilt and helped him put some of the raddest dudes in the street game on the team. I've been on from the beginning so its crazy to see how huge it is now. Its really sick.

How is it being on the team now?

Its good, like always we have the most high quality parts becuase Tilt actually makes the parts in the shop, so you know its going to be perfect if its getting sold to stores. No slacking. I'm always proud to tell people about Tilt and rep there parts. The team is so stacked now, I'm really hyped on all the dudes that are on. Just pretty much a whole street team. Plus I'm pretty close with everybody on the team.

Wallslap in Chicago.  Photo by Dylan Kasson.

What do you think the next year will bring for yourself and Tilt?

Trying to go on more team filming trips, get more photos for ads and shit. Hopefully gettin some fresh parts out. We got some sick SCS's coming out next month. Everybody who has seen them is super hyped on them. So watch out for those when they drop!!

That'll be good for now, if you wanna add anything go for it. Thanks brooo

Just wanna give a shoutout to Collin for always hooking me up, Tommy D for always hooking me up when I need it and giving me a place to stay whenever I go to Chicago, Dylan Kasson for showing me some of the best spots ever and giving me a place to stay when I'm in Ohio, All of my filmers, Jordan, Twhee, Stefan, The Lucky homies, the LIT crew, and anybody who has ever been hyped on what I'm doing!!

Boxes Limited- Chema Cardenas Extra Footy

"Chema has been working hard for his next part in the Proto video, but he wants his part to only have the Proto Orion deck so he decided to release this footage for a little Boxes web video."

Gnarly footage from him. Check out his official Boxes intro video if you haven't seen it before.

Ryan Upchurch + Joe Riley NJ Montage

Recently Blunt Pro Scooters rider and Team Manager, Ryan Upchurch took a trip to New Jersey with ShopECX rider, Joe Riley. Ryan's riding is as dialed as ever, and who doesn't love Joe Riley and how smooth he is. Good little edit. Hope to see them both drop some serious edits soon.

Montreux Scooter Contest 2012

You bet it's happening again. One of the biggest contests of the year, not just in Europe, but the world. All of the legends in the sport have been there, and this year I'm guessing it's going to be bigger than ever. I think it's safe to assume Dakota is going to be out there. Is there another 1st place on the way for the Machine? Only 2 months until we find out.

More information found by following the site below.

Matt Andrus Scooter Montage

Matt Andrus Scooter Montage from John Andrus on Vimeo.

Matt, if you don't know who he is, is one of scooter ridings most OG riders.  Started at pretty much the beginning, rose to the top of the sport as he got sponsored by Micro, then pretty much fell off the face of the earth in 2007 (after the original Transit Scooter Tour).  However, over the past year he's gotten back into it, was picked up by Scooterzone, and is shredding once again. Matt's brother Jon put together this montage of older clips of Matt for everyone.  Matt's currently filming a new video, to be put out within the next month or two.  Can't wait for that.

Hunter Bechtle Winter 2012

This winter has been a pretty big one for Hunter.  After getting on Sacrifice Scooters, he was flown to Australia, and then just this past month he was flown to Barcelona for the street jam and to film.  So this is the result of that- clips filmed literally throughout the world.  Not too many people can claim that in scooters.  Back lip double on that quarterpipe was so unexpected.  A lot of what he does is pretty unexpected.  I was hoping to see the 15 stair 360 whip that he won the street jam with but I guess we'll have to wait for the videos to come out to see it.

Welcome Proto To War

WarScooters is an online shop that specializes in carrying quality products from top companies. They have everything from Eagle, Envy, and Phoenix, to Grit, Maddgear, and Razor. Well they got a new company that is now going to be available on their website as well. That company is PROTO. This is bound to make a lot of people happy. So if you want to get your hands on some PROTO parts, you can now head over to WarScooters. Check em out now by clicking the link below.

Brendon Smith Mini UK Tour + 2 Minutes with Envy's Mitch Baldry

Envy Pro Scooters rider Brendon Smith is known for being extremely consistent, and putting down edits full of 100% bangers. He plans on heading to Woodward in California this year as well, where you can bet your ass he is going to be adding a ton of new tricks to his already huge list. But before he heads to the US, he's hitting up The UK. The Mini tour has already kicked off, and he will be making quite a few stops before heading to Woodward.

Blunt Scooters, will be offering 50 free Skatepark entries to each of these stops to the first UK riders to email their details into

Simply say your name, age and the stop you will be attending. Blunt Scooters will let you know if your in the top 50 where your name will be on a list at the door. For more information riders can hit up Blunt.Scooters.Europe.Facebook

I'm sure some crazy footage of Brendon will be surfacing from the UK Tour soon. For now though, you guys can check out Mitch Baldry in a quick 2 minute edit.

East2West Last Nitros Sale

That's right, East2West has the last Nitros to be made for sale. These are not going to be in production anymore. So if you want to get your hands on one for whatever reason, East2West is the place to go.

Black Momba??

Well.. this video was sent in by John Eron, and there was no description or anything. Just the video. As if the song wasn't awkward enough, the style of this little shredder only helped the experience I had watching this. He shreds, but definitely keeps it looking awkward haha. I mean look at that triple whip air haha. Sick video though, I hope we get to see another edit from this kid with some more work put into it.

LIT'd: Dakota Dodge

This kid has a sickk raw style.   Some of the footy is over a year old but its still good.  Definitely lookin forward to seeing more clips of him.  Oh, and Josh Young says he doesn't push mongo anymore.  +1 to Dakota.

Best of Luke Painter

Luke has definitely become one of my favorite riders to watch in the past couple years. He may not be the cleanest rider or have the most style, but he is definitely fun to watch. Sooo many combos and tech tricks. This video is made up of clips from as far back as 2005 to 2011. Honestly really glad this was almost 6 minutes long, the whole thing was good.

New Twisted Scoots Shop in Brea

One of the things we are severely lacking in our sport, are walk in shops. Twisted will be opening another new shop in the Southern California area. All Twisted shops are professionally run, and carry all of the popular brands in the sport today.

Got a couple Scooter Zone videos today. One of them is by OG Josh Toy, showing you guys how to Unlookback and Unturndown. The next is from Scooter Zone Aus's Kevin Austin, one of the smoothest riders around, with a scooter check. Check em out below. Both include clips after the How To, and SC.

Aussie Up and Comers Jami Chan and Darcy Altavilla

Thanks in big part to Aaron Bransdon, Kevin Austin, Jon Archer, and Jackson Manzie and the rest of the Friendly Crew, tech/street riding is growing really well in Australia. Below I got two up and comers in the scene, and they're off to a good start. In Jami's video, at the beginning, I totally put my hands on my knees after that knee slider haha. Check em out below.

Thanks to Kevin Austin for the Jami video.

Breaking News: Scooters In 2012 X-Games? ***UPDATE***

As you probably have seen by now, there is a plethora of buzz on the social networking sites over rumors of scooters getting into the X-Games.  From what I can tell Scooter Hut is the first to break the news, without many (or any) details at all.  I've yet to see any real details or even confirmation from X organizers.  I do know that the ISA (governing body consisting of many of the sports companies) have been pushing to get scooters involved in the games.

But rest assured, if I hear anything new, I'll post it up here on Inside Scooters.


"Dear All, My name is Scott and I am the owner of Scooter Hut. We allow some of our staff to work as administrators on our Facebook page, which normally works well for us as a means to keep in touch with our customers and friends. Today, one of my staff overheard a private conversation regarding the involvement of scooters in the xGames and wrongly decided to make an announcement on our Facebook Page in relation to this before running it by me. There is no doubt scooters will be in the xGames at some point, but we have no "official" announcement as to when this will be, so I am sorry if we have given false hope of a 2012 inclusion. On a more positive note, I can confirm we have been in talks with Nitro Circus this week and as a result of these discussions, we will have at least two scooter riders performing in every show of this year's Nitro Circus Tour of Australia. One giant leap at a time for this beautiful sport :)"

What I can say is this. I am glad that Scott announced that. Also let me say that if there is any negotiations about Scootering in the XGames, I hope that Scott is the one doing the negotiating. I know him really well, and he knows what is good for the sport. Surely you guys remember Nitro Circus last year, which he is obviously doing again this year.

So yeah calm down people haha. False Alarm!

Brian Griffin- Welcome to Fuzion

Brian recently got on the Fuzion Pro team.  This guy is pretty much a new name to me but he shows that he has some skill and definitely potential.  He has variety for sure, stacking clips in both the parks and the streets.

Tom Mattingly Park Edit

Tom Mattingly basically just shuts it down in this video. Whips and spins both ways with ease. It's a really sick edit, and it definitely needs more views.

Thanks to TWhee for sending it over.

MGP 2012 Nitro In Depth Look + R Willy Double Flair to Wood

In the below video you can get a really up close look at the new 2012 Nitro End of Days Complete scooter.

Also recently Ryan Williams landed his first Double Flair to wood. Landed a bit low, but knowing Ryan, it's just a matter of time before he's throwing these with ease. Check it.

p.s. And this is why I love Ryan Williams hahahaha

Spencer Steed: Santa Clarita Scooterzone Box Edit

Here is a video of Spencer Steeze doin things on the SC SZ box.  Shot quite well through the lens of Josh Toy, and edited just as nicely to match.  I don't think I'll ever get used to Spencer riding more than 16 wide hahah.

Tommy Daddono

Tdadd says he wasn't going hard enough in these clips. This footage is all within the past winter and fall, while he's been going through a bit of a transitional stage in his riding.  I dig it.

Boxes Limited - Recycled

Boxes decided to toss up all the promos into one big edit. Now that's how you recycle. So sick to see the whole Team riding in one edit. Really makes you understand how well represented Boxes Limited is. Great watch.

Tilt Scooters Presents: Tyler Wheeland

Tyler surprises me everytime he gets on a scooter. He's really come full circle as a rider, in the past three years. His wallrides are easily some of the best in the sport, if not the best, and you couldn't come close to his passion for Harry Potter. He's one of my closest friends I've made in the sport, and seeing him throwdown harder than he ever has in this edit below, really gets me stoked. Get ready to rape the replay button with this one.

Calling it now. Without a doubt one of my top three favorite videos of 2012.


Ro and Alejandro Capote

There's something really tight about brothers that ride together. Most of the time you got an older brother, and a younger brother. That is how it is with Ro and Alejandro, and many other "Brothers" in the sport. Capron and Cory Funk, Josh and Joe Kish, uhhhh.. *Insert other brothers here* Ro and Alejandro are from NY, so naturally they're holding it down in the streets a lot. While Ro is pretty obviously shutting it down, it's good to see that younger brother Alejandro is also on the come up. Check out older brother Ro, and younger brother Alejandro's latest edits below.

Thanks to Bryant Colon for the videos.
