What's Hilary Duff Doing?





About a week ago this video quietly dropped on Trendkill.  I don't think I've seen much hype behind it anywhere, which sucks because this is one of the coolest videos of the year.  What's Hilary Duff Doing?  is a full length by some dudes in Pennsylvania who are lowkey some of the best unsponsored riders in the country.  Production value, sadly, does leave some to be desired, but this is a video made for fun by a group of friends, and that idea comes across loud and clear.  Congrats to these dudes for getting this done, I don't know how long it took but I'd say it was worth it.

PROTO Intermission | Parrish Isaacs





The newest part in Proto's flow team video Intermission is from Parrish Isaacs.  One of the raddest dudes in scootering, Parrish's way of thinking regarding most things but especially scootering is completely fresh and unfettered by societal restraints.  I've been seeing the phrase "game changing" thrown around a lot by people talking about this video, and its definitely an accurate way to put it.  Parrish has been one of the main proponents of the sex-change movement and I'm sure we'll start to see more people doing hardway spins out of rails, as well as the fakie spin to rail tricks.  Overall amazing video.

Chief 2





The Peachy boys are filming for another full-length entitled "Flaccid Flop" and these clips are throwaways from Chief Ceeb aka Cole Ginter.  Always love seeing what this dude brings to the table.  Can't wait for the real thing.

San Diego Street Jam and Tilt 2 LA Premiere


Props to The Scooter Farm for getting this going!  Wish I could be in attendance.  Don't miss out on the Friday before however, because The Vault is putting on a showing of Tilt 2 in LA.  It'll be a rad weekend for sure!

jesse and joey AOSQUAD





Jerseyboy Jesse Walsh, and Arizonan Joey Moore recently were in LA together to film this video for AO.  These boys were killing the schoolyards.  Got the trend points on the fullwhips as well.  Good to see more young talent being groomed by AO.

Pals @ Grant





So the day after the street jam, a bunch of riders met up at Grant skatepark to get a session in.  Pal Mike Dejong had the camera out and captured all the good homies getting their shred on. I go to this park fairly often and they do some things I never would have thought possible.  That wall McKeen noseblunted is like neck high.

Gus Rymer | 2015





Gus is an amazing rider, and I don't know him personally but I've only ever heard good things about him.  Seems to be able to do anything he wants on a scooter, from wild handrail tricks to huge Megaramp combos.  So many crazy clips in this edit, check it out now.

Shrick: The App

Shrick is a new mobile action sports community app that lets you connect and compete with others.  How does it work?  Basically, a user can upload a picture or video, and each post gains points.  Different types of content get different amounts of points- you can upload fails, lands, your gear, or even lifestyle shots.  On top of that, you can compare yourself to local riders and even across your whole country on the leaderboard. 
Shrick includes pretty much every action sport imaginable- from scootering and skateboarding to windsurfing and jet skiing.  So you can also follow your favorite athletes and friends from across all genres of action sports.
I decided to take the app for a test run.  The Android version was recently released and I uploaded an old clip from the spring.  I also tried to search around a bit, found some other scooter riders who uploaded stuff, as well as some riders from other disciplines who have gained a large following on the app.  There does seem to be a few bugs, but as the Android version is pretty new and not yet tested by as large a demographic as Iphone users.  So, I’m sure they’ll be resolved within time.

For more, check out the video below and check out Shrick's web site:

Phoenix Pro Scooters | Kai Saunders





14 year old Kai Saunders is another recent Australian pickup by Phoenix.  He's been filming this video with his AM squad teammate Wilson Thomas all year now.  I swear there's something in the water making these young Aussies amazingly good at fullwhips/rotorwhips.

Mike Hohmann is a scumbag





TSI's Mike Hohmann is the gnarliest dude.  Fractured his skull on the way to the Chicago Street Jam, ended up staying overnight in a hospital, but then tried to ride during the jam, despite Thomkat's best efforts to keep him planted firmly to the ground.  Mike decided to release his footage after his fall, so here's the latest and greatest from the Florida madman.

Jack McCann - Scooter Hut II





The rotorwhip king drops another video, this time a solo parktage for Scooter Hut.  The things this kid does with rotorwhips is insane.  And he's not a one trick pony- that 180 heelwhip front noseblunt back three out?  Makes no sense.  Dudes on another level.

Daniel Rey 2015

Some kids got it, some kids don't. Just gotta face the facts sometimes. Well Daniel Rey, he's definitely got it. I clicked the video not being too familiar with Daniel, and honestly not expecting much..but damn. Super smooth rider, and he gets really creative multiple times throughout the video. The below piece was written by 5Starr.


5Starr is proud to announce Daniel Rey is officially on AM. Daniel started off as a shop sponsored flow team rider and has really been pushing himself and progressing.  Daniel lives in Arroyo Grande and his shop sponsor is Ransom Scooters, located at 1045 E Grand Ave., Arroyo Grande, CA. Daniel is an up and comer in the street game and shows some real promise as he continues to put everything he's got into his riding. We are happy to have him riding and representing 5Starr. Scope his edit and give him a follow on Instagram @danielxrey

Hella Good Stuff is a video collaboration between the Bay's two biggest crews, Bay Area Concrete and Hella Grip.  Releasing later this year, it'll feature parts from all of the heavy hitters out there- Kevin Closson, Jake Sorenson, David Coe, etc.  Can't wait to see how it turns out.

A Day at D-Block » Ryan Upchurch Edit │ The Vault Pro Scooters





Ryan spent a few hours at his local indoor filming this edit for The Vault.  All the fakie ice combos were tight.  Love that he threw a 9 just cause he can too haha.  Use his code "TheChurch" for that 11% off at The Vault.

Sky High Presents: Will Weske





Will Weske is yet another street boss coming out of the Midwest.  He's been getting so good over the past couple years, so Sky High decided to add him to their team.  Some hefty rails, a bit of creativity (deck check 180 bump to bar!), and fast maturing style adds up to a great video.

Ethan Kirk | Welcome to Crisp





Ethan may only be on Crisp's flow team but this kid shreds.  Full of rad unseen Canadian spots, this guy is killing the streets with a dope style.  That wallride hip spot looks so fun.  Definitely psyched to see more out of Ethan in the future.

PROTO Intermission | David Coe





Intermission is Proto's flow team video, and the first parts goes to Bay Area Concrete heavy hitter David Coe.  This dude is not afraid to hit any rail you put in front of him.  Staircount on the rails in this video probably outnumbers any scooter video ever.  Great job all around to everyone involved, can't wait to see the next Intermission part.

PARADISE





Sunny San Diego is a paradise, and Bryan Hillman and friends show that off in this video.  Featuring a ton of names from the SD area, this is a really sweet little HVX montage filmed by Bryan.  Just makes you wanna go scoot with the bros.

FARM FRESH





Some of the SD locals went out to go filming, the spot ended up being a bust, so they hit up Scooter Farm to ride their ramps.  This is what happened, as seen through the lens of Bryan Hillman.  Zack Martin killing it as always and Josh Young even makes an appearance.

FRIENDLY'S LUX - ROYCE KING





Royce King came through with one of my favorite LUX parts.  I've always been a fan of the dude, watching him over the years flying around Australia's parks, and this video proved he could do in in the streets as well.  High speed, creativity, those shorts, Royce kills it.
