Fasen Scooters | The Brendon Smith Video



Bsmith's latest video is a 12 (TWELVE) minute long marathon of mindblowing trick after mindblowing trick after mindblowing trick.  It amazes me how someone can progress so much while not actually progressing at all.  Brendon has certainly stuck to his roots, doing what hes done best, not venturing out too far from that style.  As for him being better than Kota, like some people are already saying?  Nah.

  1. The tricks in here are insane compared to Kota. Kota is ranked #1 because he can land them every single try, in a comp run, not because he has the best tricks.

    1. Exactly, having the best tricks doesn't mean anything unless you can put them down consistently. Only Kota can do that. And actually ride a park.

    2. Thank You Jordan and Dom! Only you two seem to have the most fair view to this! I agree with you both as well, Brendon is a legend at landing sweet bangers but Kota's consistency and cleanness pushes him way further in my opinion.

  4. Brendon would be close if not better than kota, Brendon has more style dakota (most of you think brendons styless but hes actually not) hes has a lot more variety of tricks as he can go normal and oppo and you wouldn't realize the difference. dakota looks like a robot therefor is embarrassing to call the best.

  5. So many insane tricks that I can't even go about naming all of them. Such a talented rider. The video on the other hand was so shitty. 12 minutes of repetitive bullshit. So tedious and boring. If he had taken the cool tricks and made a 4 or 5 minute video it would've been amazing. I'm probably never going to re-watch this because it's so bad. I don't understand why the concept of making a good and interesting video is so hard for some people. Whatever. I'm sure his next video will be 15 minutes long. -Stefan

  6. I love Kota and Brendon, but the fact that Kota is on Lucky and does kinda seem like a robot under all that padding bumps Brendon up and over Kota. Not to mention Brendon has done way more in advancing the sport, As Kota spreads the sports

  7. Brendon shut that down so hard. I don't know if there are any riders like Brendon or R Willy that can put together edits of 110% bangers. I really enjoyed Brendons more "Street"ish clips. But everything was great about that.

    However, when it comes to Dakota.. there isn't anyone that is "better". Dakota proves that time and time again..traveling all over the world and beating the best, with honestly what looks like little effort. Does Brendon have more tricks on Kota? No doubt. Is Ryan Williams a better all around rider than Dakota? No doubt. But until these other top riders in the world, can put together runs like Dakota, the majority of the sport is going to recognize Dakota as the best rider in the world. Even if that is only in competitions.

    1. Exactly right, Kota lives for the comps though the other riders don't seem to. Kota looks for props in a comp run throws his scooter after a double flip puts his arms up and walks like he's king. Brendon keeps to himself i have noticed. I think Brendon rides to top himself and no one else

      Delete
    2. I totally agree with you Steven but overall who do you thinks a better and more deserving rider? Kota, Ryan, or Brendon

    3. Well deserving of what exactly Sam? Recognition as the best rider in the world? Money? Fame? Sponsors?

  9. brendon has the tricks to be up there or even better than kota but it took him a year + to do all this but for dakota it would take about 3 or 4 months tops why cause f*** logic

  10. Skip to last 40 seconds and you'll get an idea of what the rest of the video is about. 11:26 says it all about the scooter scene (Notice kid in the background doing flip whips). Can we just get all these kids a mega ramp so they can get all the circus tricks out of the way. Tired of seeing the same old box jumps and quarterpipes. It's like early 2000's skateboard videos where every trick is at Hollywood High, LA High, and Venice Beach.

    I have a friend who "sucks" at skateboarding, but he's really good at launching out of a quarterpipe, flipping the board under his feet all crazy like and then landing back on it perfectly. He's landed dozens of flip tricks that are still unheard of in the skateboard scene. I don't get why he isn't sponsored. If only someone would give him his own company so he could sponsor himself.

  11. Anyone who thinks that there is a better rider than Kota at this point in time is crazy. One thing Kota has demonstrated time after time is he can land some of the best tricks in the world every time, under any situation, who else has ever double flip tucked in a run or has the balls to try it under pressure. Brendon and Ryan are great riders but when faced up against Kota all those tricks in these video just don't seem to happen. How long do these riders spend making a video? I heard Kota filmed the Devin Super Tramp video in one day and almost every shot in the video was first try. I watched the Ellen Show the other day, who in the sport can go on live tv and land any of the tricks he did one after another? No One. Plus he's never made a big edit ever.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Alright... Everything was nuts, without a doubt, only rider in the world at this level. But honestly more people probably would be this 'good' if they were planning on landing at the bottom of every ramp. Every time he lands higher up he squirrels or almost loops out, you'd think he'd work on that by now, oh well fuckem. In my opinion, for example, the Jake Clark vid was better trick wise because every trick was its own, in this video it's honestly the same trick for 12 minutes. Even Kanye got bored by the end and stopped singing haha. Speaking of the music, I don't understand how people cant hear how shitty and lifeless this type of music is.. the first rapper is utter garbage, reading straight from a page. Anyway, Brandon's handplant with no combo was actually cool! Seeing stuff like that and things like the superman deckgrab air, and the deckgrab to "Kripple Flip", done with a better scooter and put into a better edit, Brendon could get somewhere (in a more positive sense). But as long as he never gets really stoned and review his own riding, I'm certain he'll keep producing edits that get sent straight to the grave. What was his last video again? Nobody knows, nobody cares.

  13. ^^^ could get somewhere? he's the only rider with his own legit company you fool. Don't like his videos? dont watch them.. simple. Every rider who likes this type of riding will put this in one of the greatest videos of all time, why? 12 minutes of tricks virtually no one has done. Brendon rides to top himself and does it for the progression. He isn't out to be the best he's out to best himself and thats what no body knows about him. Landing flat? i think he landed flat about 5 times in this video as do most most bmx riders example harry main and mark Webb. If you want to see the tricks 'YOU' think look cool go do them? its obviously not brendons preference so go find some one who rides like you want them too.

    1. He's not the only rider with his own company.

    2. Define 'legit'. We must have learnt differently to eachother.
      Again, every trick is essentially the same. Switch/add one trick in any of the combos, and it's one of the other tricks already in the video. That really isn't progression.
      On landing flat, when he airs his body automatically uprights itself. You can't land upright near coping level, it wont work. This is landing 'flat'. Feel free to have a dig at my use of the word flat, but how he lands still looks amateur REGARDLESS of what type of rider you are.
      I'm typing all this because I have a problem with what he's achieved for what he actually does. Give Raymond Warner a company, hell even Dan Holm or Jarrod Bruns deserve way more recognition, they make park riding look so damn cool, and make it PRESENTABLE. (inb4 riding Scooter Zone's dick, it's merely coincidence)
      Brandon needs to approach making videos without the "Fuck it that'll do" attitude towards his riding.

    3. Oh hey I just noticed, you're his filmer. The least you could've done was make the tricks seem as 'mindblowing' as they are. The same angles for every spot? Come on man. You've been given a very privelaged position, at least show you're worthy of it.

    Brendon is personally my favorite rider in the world, I look up to the guy.
    Kota is also a very talented rider, they're both insane.
    All this bitching is getting people to quit scooters, lets get it back to when it was all about the fun and having comps with your mates.

  17. Jordan owns 'hella grip' a company that only a few hundred people know about
    They make griptape and stickers

    Brendon is part owner of fasen it gained 10,000 fans on facebook in a few months. its backed by one of the o.g companies of the sport (envy)

    I also think its a bit rich coming from jordan saying that brendon dosent venture out from what he does when i seen more street in 1 of his edits than i have EVER seen jordan do at a park.

    2. This comment only shows how little you actually know. Addison McNaughton owns Hella Grip.
      And you think Envy/Blunt is OG?!?! I just got dumber reading that. OG is Micro Scooters, who were once the only rival of Razor that was legit. OG is Instigator Pegs years before QCS or Tilt. OG is RAD, the first one piece bar company who still innovate bar designs but get next to zero credit for it.
      Blunt/Envy has only been around a few years. Those companies I just listed have/had been around at least 10 years ago.

  19. I DONT HOW THE FUCK YOU GUYS ARE COMPARING DAKOTA AND BRENDON SMITH! Brendon tries to get insane tricks as Dakota tries to get all his tricks down, so he can win heaps of comps and call him world 1st or whatever. I don't think either one is better as Brendon may have better tricks but Dakota is more consistant

    ReplyDelete
  20. Im a BMX rider, and i'd have to say Brendons video is heaps better then any other video i have seen, Kota has no style and is a wanker every trick in Brendons video is insane all you riders saying he lands flat you do what he did and land with transition he has taken scooters to a new level with that video he has his own company dose kota no so shut the fuck up and face it Brendon is the best of the best and yes i argee with Sadler look at mark webb harry main they land flat all the time there still classed as the top riders use are just jealous off where Brendon is and how use will never be as good as him!

  24. Kota rides for comps. Brendon i think rides to promote the sport and make it grow. Me? I ride for fun. I could care less who is the "best". Is it arguable? Yes. Do i care? No. And why should anyone else care? Just ride for fun and with your friends. Quit bitching over who's better and companies and just enjoy the sport and riding.

  25. People on here are fucking little bitches, watch the edit and shut up, if you don't like his riding, don't watch the edit and shut up, simple. He so sick, and everytime someones edit isn't pure street or filmed with a gay VX jordan jasa rips his cock off and shows his true vagina.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is going to turn into some fucking street vs park thing. Nobody who has a brain dislikes this video because its "park". If you don't like it its probably because you want to see something creative and different, although this edit is insane its also what everybody expected, the same ramps same tricks with late inverts(there were only like 3 tricks that I was surprised about)

    I didn't hate this video but im not going to watch it again. What im really trying to say is, people dont dislike this video because its park, they dislike it because its repetitive and expected. There are plenty of park riders that are enjoyable to watch that mix it up.

    I know the whole park vs street hasnt started yet but i know it will cause it always does and i want people to see this before they type.

  28. this is kinda a waste of all that footy. if he didnt save all this to make an entier 12 min video he could of put out 3 4 minute videos over the course of say 3 months and got what ever views he got on this one on all 3 videos. that would be more people watching and more views with more exposure for himself (this is all from looking at it from a business standpoint) and i hate to say it 12 minutes of even super gnarly tricks that he was doing becomes repudiative after about 5 minutes and than just gets boring to watch and im sure quite a few tricks in this video he did more than once...

    1. no tricks were repeated in the same video? there is a difference between busting them airing or sending it in a 3 over the box?
      what dont you scooter kids understand that riders from all other sports have dropped long edits and they don't get the same pointless argument that scooters get because no one has done it yet? you should be giving him props he got 12 minutes of basically undone footage. Chad kerleys new Markit bmx part is 14 minutes long and is still being filmed for!

  31. I'm shocked to see this many bangers in one video! But I would rather see 3 edits of 4 minutes coming out maybe once a week. That would have made a much bigger interest about him.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I hate how people can't just watch a video and keep their opinions to themselves, of course this was going to be a long video as it was his first big edit for Fasen its what he wanted he wanted to show that he can do any trick into a tuck, invert, turndown, an extra bar or whip, on oppo spins and over on any quarter, any box, and any spine. It may seem repetitive but what you's need to understand is that he only does it to show you he can do it over any obstacle and he can spin both ways and change it up, Brendon is not about being the best and beating Kota they are both in a league of their own but in different leagues one rides to win comps show people he can throw down anywhere anytime as for Brendon like to show he can do any trick over anything in a video and show he has the potential to beat Kota if he really wanted to get all the tricks down. Most of the time Brendon has these tricks pretty often and kills it. They both kill it and none are better then the other because they both ride try hard in different things (comps and videos) i did not hate this video at all and found it nuts i may not watch it as often as a 3-4min video because it goes for ages and it there is too many insane tricks to understand wtf just happened. I love watching Brendon all the time yeah he may land flat on SOME clips, and my look like he is about to loop out in some tricks but it would just be nice to see everyone do the tricks he does with style, cleanliness and as perfect as everyone wants it. I'm all about landing smooth and wanting to see style but when you are throwing bangers like that who cares how you land its amazing what he is doing and i just hate seeing everyone fight over this sort of shit.We are all scooter rider park or f*cking street we should all respect what we do what we land what we accomplish and just make the sport a nice community and make the sport grow.

I don't see the point to just put someone down so hard after all that effort and he id it just for you guys to enjoy.

  33. As far as street versus park, that isn't the issue for me. I like manual pads and ledges and stuff, but if someone made a twelve minute long video riding the same four ledges and doing the most mindblowing combos and "world's firsts" I still wouldn't be able to sit through the whole thing without getting bored because it would be too repetitive. The main issue here is the editing and how the video was made. Brendon is definitely way better than I will ever be, I know that, but he, like so many other very skilled riders, needs to figure out what to film, where to film it, and which clips to put in the video (i.e. not all of them). Then again, I also dislike Mark Webb and Harry Main and ride street so my opinion is probably incorrect.

  38. i dont see how everyone is getting butthurt about this, he made a fucking dope edit that lasted 12 minutes, to me thats sweet. and no dakota 'knee pad man' is nowhere near brendon's league, yes dakota may be winning more comps then brendon, but brendon rides for the fun and to best himself. he even has his own brand, signature parts and is recognised as the craziest rider ever. yet all dakota has is a sponsorship from lucky (when he doesnt even ride any of the parts which is not what happens when you have a sponsor). and how can 540 bri to heel air, buttercup to heel air, downside to fingerflip air, bar bar to lookback air, fingerwhip to heel to whip air, 360 bri to buttercup, 360 inward to fingerwhip, 540 fingerwhip air, quad rewind and whip to figure 8 be not good enough to make everyone gasp in amazement. im extremely pissed off at everyone who isnt amazed by this edit. and yes i know i have made a fucking huge paragraph raging on about it, but im showing how much respect brendon has earned and sticking up for a fellow aussie. fuck all the cunts that cant accept dakota deserves no respect and brendon deserves tons.

    1. Why does Dakota deserve no respect? He is a very respectful dude, doesn't cause trouble, or talk trash (like you're doing now about someone you don't know). Dakota is currently not riding Lucky parts because they are in the process of making his signature parts. Dakota has a giant bag of tricks too, he just prefers to have consistency with all of his tricks, then to land 1000 big tricks one time. Brendon is an amazing rider and a good friend of mine, and for sure one of the top riders in the world. But you cannot simply compare them. We need to stop the comparisons and just let people ride the way they wanna ride.
