Danny Roberts - JACT





JACT, the shortened name for Just A Commadting, is a full length video from the Command Crew in the UK. To help hype it up, they released this re-edited version of Danny's part. Danny, despite living in one of the worst places for street riding, somehow always seems to able be to produce quality footage at a decent rate. I'm never gonna understand how he can hold those scooter fakie nose manuals so well. He's also clean as a whistle. You can support the crew and buy the DVD here.

Ethic DTC Woodward West Off-season





Strap yourselves in for this one. Ethic sent JD, Jojo, and Porcial out to Woodward West recently and the dudes went ham on the place. Rails, ledges, flyboxes, even the Megaramp all got destroyed by these three. The Megaramp clips were so insane, I can't imagine what its like to fly so far so fast. Props to Salim Sikha for killing it behind the lens too.

FRIENDS & FAM 2





The boys down under have done it again, with the Australian Friendly/Fam Hungry crews collabing with New Zealand's YesPlease crew after the Auckland Street Jam for one amazing crew video. Kevin Austin, Nathan Fleming, Jon Archer, Royce King, and more lay waste to the urban settings of NZ, destroying rails, bump to bars, sets, and more. Lawrence Rubin does a great job behind the lens (with the help of the homies) to really make this edit complete. HVX footage looks so nice, always happy to see it as opposed to DSLR footy.

HAGTOWN HERSH





You guys know who Jake Hershey is. Born and raised on the east coast, growing up in the legendary park scene centered around The Incline Club, Brick park, and many more, and becoming one of the top figureheads in the industry through his sales/TM jobs and announcing gigs. So as someone so centered around the park side of scootering, it's incredible to see him so dedicated to filming an entire street part. Jake moved to SD recently and its clear how much riding with the crew down there has motivated him to push himself. He keeps it real with an OG East Coast type song and throws down a perfect ender. Congrats and awesome job to him!

Boris Germain : Flavor 2016





Boris is so good. One of the best in the game, he traveled across Europe as well as Woodward in the US to film this video for Flavor. There are so many crazy tricks, but the one that got me was the drop to rail ride toward the end...I was fully expecting a drop to boardslide, so that caught me soo offguard. Props to this dude!

mark williams // マークウィリアムス





Mark Williams seems like enigma to me. What do we really know about him? You might remember him back in the day as the little "Black Momba" when Basic Bunch was starting to be a thing. Then he moved to Atlanta(?) and not much was seen or heard of him...cycling through scootering and skating, he started making moves on Instagram and last year Sky High picked him up. He's got a love of all things Japanese...and boardslides, apparently. I guess he wanted more lines for this video but sadly, we only get to see him go through every kinked rail he could find. I feel like this is only a taste of what Mark's capable of, but I'll take it.

Hella Classic Colorway Video: Zack Martin





How is this dude doing it? Zack showing us all how it's done- two amazing videos within a month. He's got one of the most amazing work ethics in scootering- whether its filming on the streets or working in the TGE warehouse. This video is for a signature Hella Grip colorway and Zack could not be any more deserving of it. Congrats to him!

el niño





The highly anticipated 25 minute video from Sky High filmed over their SD10 trip is finally out. These dudes always keep it raw while performing some of the most radical scoot maneuvers ever.  This video takes us through their trip park by park, as they drop the hammer on Socal's many parks and plazas. Everyone kills it but I think its safe to say Shorty and Reece are just not human.

FLAVIO PESENTI | AOSV4 Promo





This man is insane. With his first sig deck being released, Flavio was on a mission to film some of the craziest clips of his life. I don't know how he does any of this stuff. Whip noseblunt 3? How does that even work with two front pegs? Heelwhip in Barca over the wave to fence spot was so dope too. This guy does not slow down.

Jcott mini vid





One of the most active people behind the lens on the East Coast, John Cottle manages to spend some quality time in front of it as well. Love seeing his creative take on the cutty spots of the NYC area, plus some Cali and Florida spots too. Powerslide feeble and fastplant 3 heel came outta nowhere. Solid edit.

# 2 NA GUADE NOCHT





The filming collective known as Alchemyst has dropped another awesome video. This one, the title of which translates to "Good Night," documents the crew seshing their urban cityscapes during the evening hours. There's really nothing better than cruising the city at night with the bros, and these guys do an awesome job capturing the vibes. I love the mix of digital to analog footage, it's not too much to be gimmicky and really is their own style. Great job all around by these dudes.

William Holm - Stockholm





I've been watching this kid on Instagram for a while now and he's always posting heat, but I don't know if I ever saw any actual videos of him til now. I guess this was filmed in just three days. Incredible talent and skill from Will, dude has crazy combos, amazing rail game, goes fast. I hope he keeps with it as he gets older, he's gonna be someone to look out for in the future.

Logan Fuller





Is there anyone who doesn't love watching Logan Fuller? The dude is always on a mission to conquer everything in his path. One of the gnarliest riders today, Logan hits some of the most beastly rails in existence in this video. Double kinks, insanely long curved rails, huge bank to rails, wall rails, he does it all.



Also, this video was hosted on Addict's channel, does that mean Addict's not dead? Someone who knows more than I, chime in.

Jon deVrind | Manual Labor





You may have heard tech wizard Jon Devrind recently made the move from the east coast to sunny California to live in SD with his great friend and team manager Jake Hershey. Jon started stacking clips on the cross country drive and continued once he was settled in, culminating in this video. John has mindblowing skill that leaves you having to rewind to see what just happened. Fav trick was definitely the ender, that trick makes zero sense to me.

FÜRTH DREAMS





AO's Ryan Ruegg, Tanner Wilson, and Ben Klein have been riding in Germany for the past week and they decided to film a chill park edit for the homies. Always a pleasure watching b.clit's riding, such a raw, wild style. All three of these dudes kill it so check it out.

UA | JD Signature Promo





You already know JD brings the heat with his tech/peg game, and this edit put those skills on display in this sig bar promo for UrbanArtt. So many crazy tricks that you don't see from hardly anyone, using and abusing those pegs. Last clip was so nutty, commitment and balance. Support this dude and cop a pair of his bars today.

Haske Street Jam 2016 (OFFICIAL VIDEO by Roots Boy Production)





The Haske Street Jam in Barcelona is one of the biggest international scooter events, drawing riders from all across Europe as well as the US. This year featured some new spots, which were all quickly decimated by the legions of riders eager to put their mark on this storied event.  Zack (Zac?)'s whip back lip, Charles' feebzer 360, Arnaud's tech, are a few highlights from the video.

DISTRICT IN BARCELONA 2016





So footage from everyone who attended the Barcelona Jam is starting to drop, and this one comes from the District squad. Lewis Crampton, Brandon James, Michael Goumaz, and more all rip the urban skatepark that is BCN (as well as a few actual skateparks). Had to turn off the sound though.

joey moore AOSQUAD





16 year old Joey Moore was recently hooked up by AO and was able to travel a bit with them to film. This dude fits into this new wave of young street shredders killing it on rails, spinning the bars and deck at the same time, and looking nice at the same time. Never even heard from this guy until now, was a pleasant surprise and I'm looking forward to his development!
