Should manuals be done with the brake or without?

Flavio Pesenti- Welcome to Authentique Scooter Shop

Flavio Pesenti - Welcome To Authentique Scooter Shop from SCOOTER FLOW on Vimeo.

You already know Flavio is one of the best in the tech game.  Check out his latest edit, for Authentique.  I'm pretty sure he does a whip over ice grind in this...soooo nutty.

NATIVE August 2014

NATIVE looks like a new brand out of Australia trying their hand at making parts.  Their first part will be handlebars, HIC and standard, T style at 22.5x27".  This is their first video, full of upcoming Aus riders.  It definitely gets progressively better, see this one through til the end.

"Ah Jeez" By the Toqued Boys

This is a full-length by a young crew out of the Seattle area.  Featuring Brent Ikedah (brother of Jesse), photographer Noah Foley, Tim Hogan, Patrick Schneider and Jayden Lee, this is an awesome video for an amateur crew.  There are some serious ledge and rail tech tricks in here, especially from Patrick and Jayden.  Filming was decent as well.  Props guys!

The Vault Labor Day Sale

The Vault is also having a really sweet sale this weekend, featuring 20% off the entire online and retail store! The Vault has made a serious name for themselves in the sport, for always being stocked up on the latest and hottest gear, and for their insane line up of Team riders. Click the link below and check out their website now!

Vex Brand X Unfair Tour

This was tight.  Upcoming shoe brand Vex as well as parts manufacturer Unfair went on a little trip together recently and filmed all this.  Dope footage from all the boys, Regan's 5050 lip at the end was awesome.  Last minute or so is heavy.


I already wrote the description on Youtube, it really says it all-

"Wow. It's hard to believe that The Tilt Video is wrapping up it's online release. Nobody really knew how the video was going to turn out when filming first started. Nobody really even knew what they were filming for back then. All they knew was that it would be rad to make a full-length. So eventually, video parts started forming, and we knew a DVD had to happen.

The credits shows only a tiny slice of everything that happens while filming, from everything before and after the trick, as well as the usual memorable bails. Thanks again to everyone who had a hand in making this, especially the team, the people behind the scenes at Tilt, and you, the viewer. Next up: Tilt 2."

Calling the Shots with Nick Tedrick

MGP's Nick Tedrick has really began to make a name for himself this past year. I honestly didn't know much about him until earlier this year, but man is he good. Edits on Instagram of him slaying his flat rail are entertaining enough, but this is equally as good. It's Nick showing off his consistency with a Calling the Shots edit. He kills back lips in that mini, with a few combos I've never seen done before. And has some other clips throughout the park as well. Check it out below.

The Florida Ride Video: Jona Humbel

I'm sure you all saw this part when the full Florida Ride video dropped a few months ago, but check it out again.  Jona is the dude and a complete rail slayer.  His Tilt 2 part will be fire.

Filmed and edited by Olivia Monks.

Dylan Kasson - Welcome to Tilt

Yep, the rumors are true.  Dylan Kasson recently swooped a spot on the Tilt team after leaving Proto.  He's always been a part of the crew, be it from riding in California with Tyler, Erik, Monky, and Josh, or in the Midwest with Josh, Tom, and myself, so it was really a no-brainer.  His welcome edit is SD footage from over the past year.  Word on the street is that he has an HD part as well, to be released as a full part in Tilt 2.

Max Peters VIP Woodward PA

We all know how iconic Woodward is in the action sports world. We also all know that in the past few years they've warmed up more and more to scooters. Recently they took another big step in showing their support for our sport, by showcasing Envy Pro Rider, Max Peters on their official Youtube channel. Obviously Max killed it during his stay at Woodward, and you can witness some of the tricks he learned in the edit below.

Lucky Scooters James Gee in Sac Town

James was kickin it in Sac Town not too long ago, and he hooked up with the local killers out there, and Damion Black, who was behind the lens to film the madness. James has been killing it for so long, and he is still managing to stay up in the street scene with clips like these. Check it.

Kenny Griffin at Woodward West ft David Ramirez

Kenny was recently a counselor at Woodward West, and him and his homie David put together a solid edit from their time there. Always good to see Kenny riding, but I think we can all agree that we are impatiently waiting for another street edit from him. When's it dropping Kenny?!

Ethic DTC Welcomes Maxime "Le Baron" Legrand

Ethic seems to be the new Addict.  JD, now Le Baron, and of course Kevin Demay running things.  This video has six insane clips.  Amazing tech riding, I can't wait to see what the future holds for these guys.  All the new parts look crazy, I'm super excited for the new Pandemonium deck.

The Harvest: Dennis Levesque

The first part from the Bamboozle x Speak Apparel video The Harvest is from none other than Dennis Levesque.  Dennis isn't really known in the scooter world other than as "that guy Conor Davidson rides/rode with" but after this part he might gain some recognition.  Taps/wallies everywhere, plain hops, amazing spots, this part is East Coast af.  That feeble manual 3 was so rad.

THE TILT VIDEO - Tom Kvilhaug

The description on Youtube really says it all:

"TomK is one of the hardest working dudes in scootering. Up at the crack of dawn, he's always ready to rip. This part is a nonstop flurry of bangers. Don't blink or you'll miss the madness."

If you haven't picked up a copy of the Tilt Video, you need to do so now.  It is a must have for any scooter rider.

Basic Bunch Presents: David Cappetta

Dcaprio is the main filmer behind the Basic crew, but can also throw down in front of the lens.  I got to ride with him a bit when he was down in Chicago for the street jam and he has definitely improved over the last year.  This video documents his progression through the East Coast spots as well as from a California trip.  Rad lines and chill vibes.

ISA World Championships Short Recap

So I watched the ISA Worlds stream this morning, and it was a good time for sure. The good time being that I was watching a ton of my close friends shredding a sick park, and throwing down some ridiculous runs. The commentating from BenJ was also really good, Todd is coming along as well. Together they make a good commentating couple.

The riding was everything you would expect from the worlds best all in one comp. Some riders cracked under the pressure, and some rose to the occasion. In the end, it was Dakota, for the third time in a row, followed by the heavy favorite, Dylan Morrison, and the shocker was Joe Armstrong, taking out Cameron Ward for third place. I personally thought Cameron's first run was untouchable, and should have at least got him 3rd place.

My issue was this whole thing was the prize money these guys got for winning. This is the "World Championships" and first place got...1,000 dollars? What the hell is up with that. Seems honestly pathetic, that some of these guys traveled around the world to ride in a competition of this magnitude, and 1st place nets you 1,000 dollars.. No offense to the ISA or whoever put this whole thing together, but give these riders what they're worth. And I can guarantee you it's a lot more than what they were got for winning/competing.

Dakota Schuetz Preparing for World Championships

Dakota has been training for Worlds for some time now, and he is not looking to go into them with the same bag of tricks that has won the contest for him in the past. He has a bunch of new tricks, and of course, he will have them dialed in. Looks like his new signature scooter from Lucky is working out really well for him. Check out some of the ridiculousness in the edit below. They don't call him the machine for nothing.

P.S. If i never see another kickless again for the rest of my life, I'd be stoked..
