Nitro Circus Live- Next Level Scooter Kids

This is sick.  In case you didn't know Nitro Circus has been posting videos from the most recent tour mostly featuring highlights, but this one focuses directly on the scooter riders on the tour, Ryan Williams and Mitch Baldry.  A few of the other guys talk about how much they were impressed by Ryan and Mitch and there's a bunch of footage of them doing wild tricks.  Watch it.

Peter Vaughn HD Edit/Sponsor Video

Peter Vaughn comes from a small town in Vermont, near where Proto/Boxes' Brandon Kilbury grew up.  Its normal for people from the same area to have similar styles but it's uncanny how much Peter's riding resembles BK's.  Very reminiscent of the days when Brandon was riding his driveway kickers and killing the box at Talent Skatepark, before he went to college and moved to LA to become a rocket scientist (literally haha).  Peter definitely has his own style in terms of the tricks he does though, doing nosegrab/bar combos like nobody's business.  Overall this was a fun watch.

Teddy Catlett Edit Teaser

I don't really know much about this guy other than he rides for Scooterzone flow and lives in California, riding with Alec Backhus.  That first rail that he tried is so gnarly cause of how tall it is, crazy to see someone try that.  Anyways it looks like this Teddy has been trappin the streets of LA, can't wait to see the real edit.


Sick edit featuring Logan Fuller, Hep Greg, Blake Bailor, Jon Zegarra, and a clip from King Och. A lot of rail clips in here. Logan and Greg shred up the vert ramp as well. Pretty sick to see two riders that kill it in street, and can also ride a vert ramp like that. Good clips all around in here.

Axel Pegus Anonymous Edit

Axel Pegus recently joined The ISS Team. He seems like he belongs in the streets with all of the back lips and grind combos he throws down throughout the edit. It'd be tight if he hooked up with the Friendly crew for some filming. Good addition to the ISS Team for sure. Check out his edit below.

MGP Deep West Tour Edit Part 1 and 2

MGP USA recently finished up their Deep West Tour, and it looked to be a huge success. The talent level of the MGP Team is so high, that it is really hard to not get psyched watching these guys throw down. Tons of footage in these two edits so watch em both.

Remi Bouchard 2012

Uhh yeah..you're probably gonna wanna watch this. Remi is one of the best whip/scooter flippers in the world.  I say that not just because he can air out above clouds and do all the combos on quarterpipes but he can also do them on rails and ledges.  I saw a cellphone angle of the banger a while back but seeing it with a real camera is twice as crazy.  Oh and dat 360 tuck knee no hander, so crazy.

Alexis Cuvillier's ID

Wat.  Thats about all I can say about this video. Bizarre intro, weird song, some nutty tricks.  That rail at the end looks really really tall.  Overall I'm still full of wat though.

Grit Pacific NorthWest Takeover Tour

Grit keeps on making moves in the US, this time by having a tour throughout Washington and Oregon.  Team manager Devin Hohlbein tells me they'll have giveaways and other fun stuff during the stops, so you should attend.  The real reason you'd wanna go though, is to see Midwest shredder Kelly Zmijewski.  He's got one of the smoothest styles in the game today.

Cooper Klaar/Brandon Miller Throwaway

The above are clips of both Cooper and Brandon with their old camera.  They recently got a t2i to film with so they decided to put these out now.  Both of them put down some really good tricks, and both of them are sponsored by Phoenix because of it.  Brandon's last clip was super cool, he had some unexpected tricks for sure.  Cooper's railhop clips were crazy too.  Also, Coop has signature bars made by Phoenix that are really good, I own a pair and you should too.

Matt Somers- Sounds of Riding

So for whatever reason Matt left the Scooterzone team and release these clips, which are what he had been saving for the SZ DVD.  Matt can do a lot of tricks and demonstrates it in this songless video.  Boardslide (or whatever you call that) to decade was so crazy.  And just in case you were wondering, yes he will still work at the Jerseyzone.  I also have to say I'm pretty bummed he decided to release this without even editing it to a song.  Seems like a waste of time/footage/effort.

US Envy East Coast Tour

The talented Envy USA Team is hitting the road, and they're headed for the East Coast. The entire Team will be present, even Jessee Ikedah, who has been out with an injury lately. 12 stops on the Tour, and if you guys want to meet the Team, grab some free gear, and have a good time, make sure you to head to at least one of the Tour stops! More information below.

Blunt Europe Tour Spring 2012

This came out last week but somehow didn't make it onto the site.  This is the video documenting a Blunt/Envy tour that includes Flavio Pesenti, Max Peters, Jake Clark, Charles Padel, Jara Mini Soukup, Joan Costa-Farre, Julian Zieger, and Andreas Laroche Joubert.  Everyone on the team, especially the Euro guys are such shredders.  Lots of park and street riding from everyone.  Overall it looks like it was a fun time.

Andris Balto Kvien Venture Promo

Man, they start pretty young out in Norway, which is where Andris Balto Kvien is from. At only 12 years old, he's already pretty fun to watch. Developing a nice style as well. I was definitely feeling his street clips. I also heard he recently got picked up by Micro, so expect good things from Andris. Check out his edit below.

Robert Kearney Twisted Edit

The below video features Robert Kearney of Twisted Scooters in Southern California. I don't know much about Robert, but I don't think he's been riding too long. Kind of your average rider, does a few sick gaps. The Twisted Team has been filming edits all summer, so be on the look out for more in the near future.

Not aiming this at Robert, just in general. I really wish riders would focus more on being original and a bit more creative. Especially when filming edits. I understand if Bri flips and Front bris are your thing. But at least push yourself with them then. Like, before you film a clip, ask yourself how many other hundreds of riders have done the same exact trick you're about to do, on the same, or over the same obstacle. Sorry, /endrant

Sky High: Issac Miller Ghetto Edit and Northbrook Ride Day

Two for one for Sky High.  Starting off we have a video I filmed of Issac this past winter at our "local" park, the Ghetto.  There are also a couple clips of Zach Johnston in there.  Down below is a flier for a ride day at Northbrook skatepark in Illinois this Saturday.  A bunch of the guys from the team will be there riding and doing prize tosses so you should definitely come.

Hingham Clips

This short clip features Conor Davidson, Zach Fuller, and Georgie Louis.  These guys are the dudes and they do the tricks.  I recently got the chance to ride with Conor in California and he has been shredding.  I also managed to check out some of his newest unreleased footy and he's done some super sick stuff.  He also promised me a longer edit for tomorrow so keep an eye out for that.

Brandon James | District Scooters

Here's the latest edit to come out of District, this time from Brandon James.  This guy is so steezy.  Love his quarterpipe lip tricks.   District is killing it lately with the videos, I wonder who's gonna be next.

Spain on the Come Up. ScooterExtreme Now with Inside

Today we started working with a new company in Spain called ScooterExtreme. They are a walk in shop much like Scooter Zone is out here in the US. Really great looking shop, and carries all of the sports top brands from PROTO, to MGP, to District, and Addict and a lot more.

Earlier this month they had their first competition, and I am pretty shocked at the turn out. Spain really is coming up as one of the major hot spots of the sport. So many kids showed up and threw down. And it looks like there was a really hyped crowd. Check out the edit below.

Issac Miller Six Trick Fix

Issac "gmill" "eyesack" Miller recently filmed these clips for a Six Trick Fix.  Getting tech but still with his signature style...also the kid rides that box all day every day of his life.  You should all feel bad for him.

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Helmeri Pirinen- District Promo

Helmeri has such a unique style which is clearly documented in this video.  Rock rides, firecrackers, footplants...Don't see many of those tricks in your average scooter video.  That's why this guy is on District.  This is worth a watch or two.

Hunt Park

Hunt is Robert "Monky" McMoran's local park, and this video features him as well as Efrain Arriaga and Nicky Martinez.  They all do some pretty cool tricks, especially Monky.  Monky is really really good at riding scooters.

Welcome to Phoenix Pro Scooters: Josh Toy

it comes to being a true OG, you gotta mention Josh Toy. This guy has been around since the beginning, has a ton of "world firsts" and like a few other OG's out there, he is still in the sport, and still getting it done. Josh recently got picked up by Phoenix Pro Scooters, and this is his Welcome edit. While it can get tough finding time to go ride real street/park with a full time job. It has to feel good knowing the place Josh does work at, Scooter Zone, has some stuff for him to ride right inside.

Anthony "Keca" Wixon War Edit

I see you Anthony. Anthony reps WarScooters in his latest edit which he clearly pushed himself a bit harder for. It's a decent video, but with the NY scene blowing up as it has been this past year or two, it's getting harder and harder for riders to get noticed without being way above the norm out there. Anthony is no doubt going to keep progressing so let's see how his next edit turns out.

ECX XW7 Team Trip 2012

ECX got the Team together for another trip, this time to the Xtreme Wheels 7 contest in NY. The contest itself didn't seem to be quite as big as the previous contests. Most likely due to the recent changing of owners of the park, and slight confusion on if the contest was even going to happen. But ECX and plenty of other riders still showed up. Check out the clips they got at XW and other various parks and spots along the way.

Zack Martin Welcome to ELYTS

My first memories of Zack Martin were just of his tutorial videos on YouTube. Where you saw how dialed his riding was. Well it looks like ELYTS took notice of Zack's riding as well, because he was recently added to the never ending Team. Zack has all the tools to become a really solid rider. Just has to continue to push himself. Check it out below.

Filmed and Edited by Andy Rea.

Jersey Scooter Zone Update Video

If there is one thing Matt Somers does well, besides his riding, it's his videos. Whether they are his tutorial videos on his own channel, the tutorials he's done for SZ, and even more recently his review videos of various products. You can always expect a good video from Matt. In this video he gives you a rundown of the new Scooter Zone Jersey shop. It has come a long way in a short amount of time.

With SZ growing like it is, you have to wonder where they are going to pop up a store next. Any ideas?

Also don't forget to take advantage of the Phoenix sale if you're in Jersey.

Face of Fasen Revealed: Brendon Smith Interview

So with the recent announcement that Brendon Smith is the rider behind Fasen, we had to catch up with him and get the inside story. I recently discussed everything with Brendon, from the beginning of Fasen, His future with Envy, And the future with Fasen. Read it all in the interview below.

Steven: Brendon how you been dude?

Brendon :Hey, yeah I’ve been good, riding a lot and mainly just planning out my schedule for the next 6 months.

Steven: All right so the secret is out, you are the rider behind the company Fasen, Correct?

Brendon :That's right.

Steven: Ok take me back dude. I want to know how the idea of Fasen even started?

Brendon :Alright, last year I was on tour with Dinny one of the owners of Blunt/Envy, we started talking about product ideas, at first it was to add onto the range, however towards the end of the tour things just started to drop in place and the designs we had in mind really just healed their own and where quite different to the style of Blunt/Envy. From then on we were both extremely excited about this project and it just went from there. The name 'Fasen' is a old family name. We had some others, however Fasen seemed to stick.

Steven: Why did you want to do this? Has it been something you’ve wanted to start up for a while?

Brendon :Yeah, it’s been something I have wanted for a long time. It's safe to say every rider out there would jump on a chance to start up a new brand. I throw myself at it.

Steven: Was it tough to keep it a secret from everyone for this long?

Brendon :Leading up to the announcement on Inside not even my team mates or close friend knew. I didn't/don't want to be one of though brands that say there are starting up a company and start posting 3D drawings months before anything has even been made, anyone can do that. When we decided to launch, we wanted to have all the products made and in the final stages of testing. So for the past 3 months I have been keeping a very low profile and testing our new range, swopping over to my Envy to go to comps and trips away from my home town Benalla.

Steven: So if I understand it correctly, you are a Co Owner of Fasen. Talk to me about the other half of the company?

 Brendon :The guys from Blunt/Envy are the other owners, they have kindly put up the cash and their net work. When this all started I thought setting up a brand would be easy. Never thought about the costs of IP's, websites, trade marking, molding and development. Your'e talking big $$$, so much like some of the other rider own brands out there, Fasen is backed.

Steven: All right man, run me through some of the products we can expect from the company?

Brendon :Ok, we wanted Fasen to be a stand alone brand.  And because we have never been in a rush to release it we took our time on finding the best technology we could get our hands on. For example, our wheels. These are the first of their kind and to my knowledge no scooter wheel has ever been made like it. It's 110mm and comes in at 150grams and is incredibly strong. The reason why we are being so secrete and not showing pic's, is I can promise you this is the future of wheels and we are not willing to give it away any time soon. So the first time you will see these wheels is when they are getting released to the stores. Other products like our deck, we have made a one piece forged head tube, which is light and has a cool design. We have come up with a new style of connecting it to the deck body that save on weight and spreads the load a lot better.  The deck is a little wider and longer then the AOSv2, with 2 gird surfaces on the bottom. The bar we have is made of 4130 and comes in at 850grams, which is about 200 grams lighter than most 550mm high bars on the market. Our clamp, you'll just have to wait, its a whole new system. Other products like Grips, Bearings, headsets, brakes are all ready for production as well.  Shoe's, apparel and back packs are all coming very soon too.

Steven: Does this affect your relationship or Team position with Envy at all?

Brendon :I'll be representing Fasen full time, so sadly I'll be leaving the Team. My bars "Smith" will  be still be sold by Blunt/Envy until the stocks run out and they will be under Fasen. I will be working with Blunt/Envy very closely and when I make the move to Melbourne this year, I will be located in their head office. So that relationship can only get stronger.

Steven: Obviously it’s going to take a lot of time, dedication, and responsibility to run the company. Think you can handle it?

Brendon :The best thing for me is I have my partners backing and net work. To try and start this from scratch and on my own would be impossible. I have a lot to learn about what it takes to run something like this and I'm sure there is some long days ahead of me. Most of my tasks will be product  development, marketing and promotions. The sales and manufacturing will be handled by my partners, however I will make sure I'm a part of it.

Steven: So with Fasen making parts such as a deck, bars, wheels, what exactly are you going to be riding from now on? Envy or  Fasen?

Brendon :Fasen will have everything to complete a scooter. So when the products are ready I'll be 100% Fasen, until then I'll be riding Envy products which I have no problem at all doing.

Steven: Has testing begun on the parts yet? If not when does that start?

Brendon :Testing has been going on since early this year, right now we are in the final stages. I live about 200km out in the country side so it's been a great area to test. Couple of small changes and the production will begin. 

Steven: So when can we expect to see some of these parts for sale?

Brendon :Production is due to start in the coming weeks, so all I can say is soon. Well before Xmas that's for sure.

Steven: I gotta say I’m stoked for you Brendon. A lot of riders dream of doing something like this, and you’re actually doing it. If you got any last words or shout outs, let em go?

Brendon :I don't even really know how to sum it up. It's unbelievable that something like this is actually happening, and can't wait to get started. I'd like to thank Blunt/Envy for everything they have done for me and for making this all happen, and Michael Sadler for filming and editing all my videos. Be sure to head over to facebook.com/fasenscooters and Like the page and share it with your friends.

ELYTS Shoes at ScooterGarage

If you're in the SoCal area near La Jolla, and you need some ELYTS shoes, you already know the place to go is Scooter Garage. SG has been supporting to the sport out there for a while now, and they do a great job at it. For more information check the flyer.

Derek Seay: !Nesk Promo

So Derek recently got on Maddgear and decided to release these clips for !Nesk.  Opening clip was so sick.  This kid does big things in park and street, its pretty wild to watch.  I just wonder how his riding will progress now that he's on Madd.

Scooter Zone Ride Day + Inside Look at Laguna Hills Shop

Nick Darger walks us through one of my personal favorite Scooter Zone shops. Had a lot of good memories in this one. From battling a raccoon, to meeting Danny Rambert and Cody Speake for the first times. Check out his walk through, and a few clips of him riding the new Laguna Hills SZ Skatepark at the end.

Also this Saturday head down to the Murrieta Skatepark for one of the infamous SZ Ride Days. Ride with the SZ Team, enjoy food and beverages served all day, and of course contests and free giveaways. For all other information, check out the flyer.

Steve Fales Web Edit

Original riders still exist? What? I was just checking youtube when I saw this video pop up. Damn glad I clicked it too. Really solid street riding from Steve. Shares some similarities to Jon Knudtson in some of the clips as well. If you're a fan of street riding, check this one out.

New Phoenix Completes

Phoenix is the company that set the bar when it came to decks in the industry. The quality of their products is some of the best without question. They are now offering complete scooters, at a pretty affordable price. These will soon be available at most scooter parts dealers/websites. For more information check the flyer below.

Welcome to AO: Jonas Kjaer

Looks like AO picked up another new rider, Jonas Kjaer, While most of you have probably not really heard of this kid before, let's go off what we see in the video. 1. Up and coming street rider. 2. Likes baseball tees, preferably Proto. 3. Wears bright color shorts.

That being said check out his Welcome to AO Edit below.

Filmed and Edited by Phillip Long

Chema Cardenas Web Edit

Proto/Boxes rider Chema Cardenas put out this little web edit today of some clips from what I'm assuming is his local area in Mexico.  Big hops, a long icepick, and a one hit wonder song.  All great features in an edit.  Get hyped for his part in Proto Armageddon, it could end up being the best section in the whole video.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Phoenix's Dan Barret and Cooper Klaar DK Day Edit

After the XW 7 Comp, Phoenix Pro riders Dan Barret and Cooper Klaar went over to Matt Dible's local park, DK. Tech madness from both of these guys. Check it out below. Little bit bummed that there was no Jon footage though.

Johan Walzel- Strašnice Footage

Johan came through with some cool clips at this pretty fun looking park.  Some really tech stuff, that nose manual backside 180 was too sick.  I wanna see him get out and film some street clips.  Filmed and edited by Štěpán Procházka.

AO Sigma Deck + ELYTS Mid and Lows at FreestyleDepot

FreeStyleDepot recently got their hands on the new AO Sigma Deck, and the new ELYTS Low Tops, and they also have the ELYTS Mids for sale as well. If you want either just head over to FreestyleDepot by clicking the links below.

AO Sigma Deck
ELYTS Lows and Mids

Jordan Robles 2012 Web Edit

The thing I've noticed in most young riders, are that a lot of them seem to just be "no fear huckers". Throwing tricks without even really trying to perfect them. Jordan in my eyes is the opposite. He's not just blasting tricks flyout. He is actually taking the time to learn to ride different obstacles, from quarters, hips, sets, rails, ledges, and more. Keeping his trick list small, and perfecting the tricks he does do.

It wasn't too long ago that he learned tailwhips and doublewhips, and now you can see him throwing them with ease. He's also recently picked up some pretty good looking Bri flip airs, and that 360 Bri at the end. Jordan's only 7 years old, and he has one hell of a future in front of him.

Razor and Friends: Day at Motion

Razor riders from all over the world, including the UK, EU, and USA, all were at Motion Skatepark recently  and Graham Kimbell was there to record it all.  Joining the Razor crew in this video are Cam Ward, Gizmo, and Luke Painter.  There are a ton of good riders in this video but to me Dom Olorenshaw was killing it.  I mean come, dirt scooter backflip to noseblunt?  Thats gotta be a world's first.

RAD Edits.. enough said.

It'd be pretty hard to find someone who doesn't like the guys from RAD. RAD if, I'm not mistaken.. and I'm pretty sure I'm not. Is one of the longest running crews in the sport today. Despite the fact that they were the first to bring one piece bars to the sport, they also all happen to shred hard.

Tyler Bonner has been out of action for a while now since he tore his leg to bits, so he's been focusing on his filming and editing with these below two edits to show for it. You'll also see Cory, the brother of Cary riding the RAD Dirt Scoot. It is so sick to see him riding that hard. You definitely want to check out the two edits below.

Skates.co.uk Introduces Brad Ash

The biggest online store for scooters in The UK recently added Brad Ash to their Team. He's 16 and from Bracknell, UK, and he's not bad. He does have to put in some more work, but I'm sure he has a bright future in the sport. Below you can check out his tutorial on Backflips, and a link to his latest edit for Skates.co.uk.

Here is a link to Brad's latest edit. Check it out.
  Brad Ash Welcome to Skates.co.uk Edit

Micro Euro Tour Clip of the Day 1,2,3,and 4

Micro is definitely back, and they're making sure everyone knows it. They picked up Team riders from The US, AUS, and parts of Europe and they got them all together for a big tour across Europe. These dudes can ride it all, park, street, rails, anything. You'll also notice right off the bat that these guys have a lot of fun together. They're not one of those Teams where their only "Team" activity is filming, or all at a contest hardly sharing a word together. They make it look fun, and they definitely shred in the process. Check out the 4 videos below, and stay tuned for more.

Kyle Tolentino Droppin Bombs

Kyle has been around for a while, and his riding shows it. I've personally only ever really seen Kyle ride park in the past, and these clips are proof of that. He knows how to keep his riding fun to watch though. I particularly liked the last trick in the edit.

While this is all park, Kyle promises his next edit will be 100% street. You'll see that here on IS when it drops.

Sky High Presents: Tommy Daddono California Footage

Last March Tommy aka Tdadd took a trip along with myself to Tyler Wheeland's house in California to stack clips.  In the 3 or 4 days that Tommy was able to ride before he tore his ACL he filmed every clip in this video.  A 1:35 video of solid street clips in just a few days is no easy feat.  I can't wait to see what he can produce after he's all healed up.

ELYTS in Australia

Back in October Zig and Phillip Long went down to Australia and got a ton of footage. This is mostly left over footage, but there's still tons of good clips. You'll also notice a lot of Rory Coe clips, which is pretty rare. Really good to see Rory shredding. Also featured are Chris Hart, Mitch Baldry, and Adam "Ladam" Bolton. Check it.

And I see you Zig, reppin that ISB!

Luke Painter- Days Gone By

This is all footage from the past 6 months, including from when Luke was flown to California to film for the Elyts Stylites DVD.  Five minutes of solid street riding.  Luke merks handrails like few others.  He's also just left college so now he has a lot more time to ride and film...can't wait to see what he can come up with next.

Jon Devrind - MGK

Jon Devrind, aka Jon Dev, aka now MGK haha, has been one of my favorite riders for a long time now. So much tech, and one of the cleanest styles in the game. Jon was one of the riders who from his first edits was already a really clean stylish rider. Unlike most riders that have to actually develop that. Video is packed with tech bangers. Check it.

AO Europe Tour Part 4

The final installment of the AO Europe Tour featuring Cory Vanlew and Zig Short, and filmed and edited by Phillip Long comes to an end with the 4th edit. We've seen Zig and Cory literally all over Europe promoting the AO Deck, and with the latest news about the deck being released earlier this week, it's just a matter of time before people start getting their hands on it. Check out the edit below.

Freestyle Depot- Introducing Dylan Kasson

 Thats right, Kassonova got on FD, joining Tyler Wheeland and Stefan Hefner.  No big surprise there really.  No big surprises with the footage either, just straight up shredding like we've come to expect from Dylan.  Except maybe the clip at :28, going hard on the stairsets haha.  Cannot wait for his Proto Armageddon part, which I've heard is completely done already.

ECX Backyard Summer BBQ Jam 2012

Owner of ShopECX.com has been building a mini ramp in his backyard for the past couple of months for his Team riders to shred, and it's finally done. To celebrate that, Mike and the rest of the ECX Team had a backyard BBQ and mini ramp jam. We got the edit and you guy can check it out below.

Joe Armstrong Web Edit 2012

Joe is a nut.  From his footjam combos to air tricks to nose manuals, he shows that he has a ton of skill. Nose manual 360 footjam to whip thing was so crazy.   Ice to nose manual on the quarter was cool too.

Alpha Omega Presents The AO Sigma Deck + Sigma Fork

Alpha Omega, better known as AO, is under the same umbrella as ELYTS, 841, and Raptor. AO so far has released information on their one piece deck and fork. We recently got sent all the information you need to know about both of them. For more information see the press release sent to us by AO earlier today.

"AO scooters are the first decks specifically designed for street. The key innovation of the deck is a removable grind plate (soul frame) which is made out of a super tough plastic material which not only protects your deck but enables you to effortlessly grind anything: unwaxed curbs, concrete and stone ledges, wood and it even gives you more control on metal rails.
As athletes in other action sports already know there is something about grinding and the soul frame opens a whole new dimension in scootering. Now you don’t depend on your mom to drive you to a skate park: You can ride your scooter right in front of your door steps – anytime, anywhere."


The AO Sigma deck is made of re-heat treated 6016 T6 aluminum and comes with stainless steel flex brake (rounded so your wheels won't get flat), 8 mm high tensile Chromoly axle bolts and a grind plate made of super tough Nylon material.

At only 3.6 lbs. (including soul frame) the Sigma is still among the lighter scooters on the market and allows you to do any tricks you've been used to do.

- Super tough grind plate

AO Fork Sigma

The Sigma fork is a 1-piece compression fork which goes perfectly with the Sigma deck. It is forged which means it is pressed from a block of aluminum under 5 tons of pressure. This process re-aligns the molecules and makes the so dense that it is 2.5 times stronger than regular machined aluminum.

Johan Grunwald on Razor - Copenhagen Thang

Johan has been in the game a long ass time. He had to work pretty hard to get his riding where it is today, and it's definitely paid off with Johan recently getting on Team Razor. His riding has gotten so good to watch. Whether he is shredding bowls, blasting air tricks on quarters, hitting rails, or ledges, you know he's going to throw down. Check out his Razor edit below. So good.

Denis Deez Nikolajev Welcome to ECX Flow

Denis has been slowly working his way up, and coming from NY where the scene continues to grow and grow, it hasn't been easy. But ShopECX has noticed Denis and they recently added him to their Flow Team. He's still got a long way to go, and a lot to improve on, but he's on the right track. Check out his Welcome to the Team edit below.

Trevor Navarre Victory Edit

At only 11 years old, Trevor is well on his way to being a really solid rider, and the support from Victory Scooters definitely helps. Kid goes pretty big for his age, and those last clips over that gap were tight. 360 was huge. Check him out below, and keep an eye out for him if you're in the So Cal area.

Ty Alexander- Welcome to Micro

Wow, didn't see this one coming.  Micro has been making moves lately, most recently landing NW local Ty Alexander as their newest US team rider.  Ty is known for his flowy style in the parks, and this video demonstrates that.

Team Razor Video #32- Scootering at X-Games 2012

Here is a lot (13 minutes worth) of footage from the scooter demo at the X-Games this year.  The video is all slow-mo set to some weird remix of a Billy Idol song...but there are some clips of John Radtke on the Razor dirt scooter which looks pretty rad.  Props to everyone for throwing down for the huge crowds.

CREWNIUN: Graham Kimbell

Graham rides for Uniun Apparel and Razor/Phase 2.  He is also very smooth and stylish and you should watch this video.  It features a few street clips which is pretty cool to see from Graham, who usually rides park/minis.

The Funky Projects: HMC40 Test Clips

The guys in the Funky crew recently got a new camera and filmed these clips in Melbourne to test it out.  That fisheye is a little sketch but the clips were tight.  Features Ben Duncan, Will Schmitt, and Billy Henderson.

The guys at FD are having a little event tomorrow, and if you're in the area you should make it.  I as well as a lot of other guys staying at Tyler Wheeland's house will be there, it'll be a good time.

Ride For Madux- Transit Scooter Comp

Last year the Whitewater Skatepark hosted a competition and it was pretty fun, this one is bound to be just as good.  You should definitely make the trip up to Wisconsin for this if you're in the Midwest.

Dan Barrett Web Edit Trailer

Dan Barrett might be the most skilled rider in the world.  This is only a trailer to an actual video but there were some insane looking tricks in there.  Nose manual to gap his Catalyst ender spot?  Can't wait for this video to drop.

Eddie Cuellar 2012 Edit

I get a lot of emails from riders who want their stuff posted on ISB, a lot of the times I have to reply telling them to keep practicing, and I thought that would be the case with Eddie as well. I was wrong though. Eddie is 19, and from Anaheim CA. Along with riding scooters, Eddie also rides bikes, which is where he says he gets most of his style. Apparently he also likes street, because the whole edit is street. He is definitely an up and comer, and I really liked his edit. Let's see what he's got for us at the end of the summer.

New ISS Rider Chris Parisis Bio

The ISS Store just picked up a new rider, and this was filmed to introduce him. Check it out below. He's got some good style for sure. I kind of prefer these Bio style videos when it comes to introducing new riders. Hope we see more of them in the future.

Break In Footage at Mothership (NEED YOUR HELP)

Ok, this is the kind of stuff that really pisses me off. Mothership is one of the most supportive companies/shops in the sport. They are based out of Washington, one of the major hot spots for the sport of scootering. And a couple of punks thought it would be a good idea to break in, and steal things. Little did they know it was all caught on camera. This happened on 7/04/2012. 4th of July night.

If you are from the Washington area where Mothership is located, watch this video and look at everything regarding the two individuals. What they're wearing, how they walk, how tall they are, etc etc. If you have ANY INFORMATION regarding who they might be. Please email myself at 1StevenT1@gmail.com or email mothershipdistribution@gmail.com.

Thanks guys.

JD Egp18 Day Edit

Jordan posted Max Peters edit at Egp18, so I figured I'd toss up JD's as well. Normally putting a tall ass dude on a scooter, can look a bit off at times. But for JD he happens to be one of the tallest, and still one of the cleanest. His tech game is pretty untouched by most of todays riders, and he is only getting better. Really makes you wonder what his "So What" section is going to contain.

Max Peters Raw EGP18 Clips

These are some raw clips of Max at an indoor skatepark.  Conor Davidson was impressed by the lack of pushes during the beginning lines, and his use of both frontside and backside tricks.  As usual, Max puts down some super clean lines as well as the crazy box trick bangers.
