Nick Tedrick Welcome to Madd Gear

Nick Tedrick is ten times better than I thought he would be. I had seen a few clips here and there, but it wasn't until I really started watching his stuff that I realized how talented he is. The below edit is good, but at the same time I don't think it shows exactly how good Nick is. Would have loved to see a few more street clips, more rails, and more tech. But it was a good balance of street and park. Don't sleep on this dude, he's an up and comer for sure.

Recently caught up with Nick and asked him a few questions, since he is still fairly low key in the scene.

Nick, what's going on dude? Real quick, give us the break down... How old are you, how long you been riding, and where are you from man?

Whats up. So I'm 15, I've been riding for around 3 and a half years and I'm from South Jersey.

Your style is really unique dude, a lot of tech tricks, but you can also go really big. What riders do you look up to that helped influence your style?
 I would say my top 3 favorite riders are Lewis William's because how nice he can flow a park, Gus Rymer because he can destroy any type of riding and Jackson Bartlett because of how clean and consistaint he is. I definitely think they all have influenced my style in a way.

You are a low key rail slayer, which is clearly evident in a lot of your edits. What is it about rails that keeps you pushing yourself with them?
 I just love rails, whether it comes to a flat rail or a huge 5 flat 5 hand rail the tricks and combos are endless, and now especially since Ive gotten the MFX4.8 I've stepped up my rail game a lot!
Talk to me about riding for Madd Gear, how has that been?
 Since I've gotten on Madd Gear this past summer, I've progressed so much especially when I get the chance to ride with my teamates it just makes me go way bigger and try tricks I never even would've thought of. Madd does everything they possibly can to help me be the best I can at riding and representing. I'm still beyond stoked to be a part of the team and can not wait to see how much farther they can take me in scootering!

Are you diggin the new VX4 line?
 Its insane! Madd literally fixed and upgraded everything, the vx4 line has a scooter for everyone whether your a beginner or pro. The MFX4.8 is just an all around perfect deck it locks right into any type of grind, its so comfortable you can just cruise and flow, and is just as good for going huge at the park!

Being an East Coast rider, you have to deal with a lot of bad weather during the Winter months.. what do you do to keep busy during the days you can't ride?
 Even when the weather is bad I do what I can to ride by sweeping or shoveling off my backyard spine setup but whenever I can't ride I'm either editing, keeping up on my Instagram, or just on youtube.

You ride anything else besides a scooter?
 Nah, I used to skate and BMX and its still fun to mess around with them every once in a while but I'm pretty dedicated to scootering.

You seem like you have a lot of friends that you ride with, any dudes we should be on the look out for that are on the come up?
 Yeah, I definitaly have plenty of friends to ride with and to push me so if it wasn't for them I know I wouldn't be anywhere near were I am today. You'll definitely hear all their names one day but one of the most dedicated and craziest riders I know and my homie since day one is Mike King!

Thanks for taking the time to catch up with Inside Scooters, man. Do you have any shout outs or last words, if so, let em go dude.
 No problem and yeah i definetly want to thank my parents for doing whatever they can from building me my own skatepark to driving 9 hours for a competition and even driving me to the park were I met Madd Gear, so I know if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be here right now. Huge shout out to Madd Gear again for being the best sponsor and always hooking me up with whatever i need. Big thanks to Brendan Leonhardt for helping out a lot with the filming of my video and the last thing is follow me on Instagram~@ntedrick04!
