Matt Mckeen | Lightbringer SCS





Matt McKeen has shone a brighter light on core scootering than perhaps any other rider. His reign as top street rider has never wavered since it was even a thing people talked about. Proto has decided to celebrate Matt's cerebral abilities on a scooter by giving him a signature SCS, and this is the video he filmed to promote it. I don't really need to talk about what he does here...just watch.

Welcome to VEX | Kevin Austin





There's been a lot of fire edits coming out lately, this one from Australian Kevin Austin being welcomed to footwear company Vex, joining the likes of Matt McKeen, Issac Miller, and more. This one features clips from all around the globe, as no handrails or ledges are immune from Kevin's surgical precision. Congrats Kevin!

FRIENDLY PRESENTS: Terima Kasi


FRIENDLY PRESENTS: Terima Kasi from Friendly on Vimeo.

Last June, a few of the Friendly boys packed their bags and headed to the South East Asian countries of Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand with the goal of adventure and scootering. They were able to meet up with some locals and shred some of the craziest untouched terrain the world has to offer. The filming/editing of this was awesome. I thought the intro was especially well done. Props to these dudes for another amazing video!

Keef.Ward





This summer, "Shorty" Devin "keef.urban" Heald spent time working over at Woodward PA. While there, Outset hooked him up with a DVX to catch the action. You guys don't need me to tell you how good this kid is, see it for yourself here. A lot of other homies are also featured, so check it out now.

Hella Grip in Baltimore





Hella Grip Homies Zack Martin, Josh Young, and newcomer to the squad Issac Miller recently took a trip out to Baltimore to shred the East Coast with resident homie Logan Fuller. This is the result of their two week endeavor, in which the crustiest spots were destroyed with the style and creativity of some of the raddest riders out. Josh handled the filming and editing on this one, which is awesome to see happen again. Congrats to Issac for getting on and the rest of the dudes for killing it!

Lucas Di Meglio - Welcome to Addict





A quick PSA: Using the band Fuzz, or any similar band in the genre, really shows a lack of creativity and individuality at this point. It's cool if you like that music, but unless the riding is a step ahead (like this dude), it's gonna be hard for you to stand out.



That being said, Lucas Di Meglio seems to be a perfect fit for Addict, who may or may not be slowly making a comeback. Not only does Lucas have some insane handrail tricks, he demonstrates his technical prowess with fakie manuals and other ledge wizardry. Super impressive riding all around, congrats to him on the hookup!

Hella Good Stuff DVD Promo





The wait is finally over! The Hella Grip x Concrete Crew collab full-length DVD, Hella Good Stuff, is available to buy now at your favorite retailer. The boys threw this new promo up on the tube to get us all hyped again. Definitely can't wait to receive my copy!

Speak Welcomes: Andy Koke





Speak Apparel has been making moves this year, and their latest is to add Texas' own Andy Koke to the team. Andy has transplanted to the East coast and has been busy applying his unique take on spots all over the area. Some West coast clips are also featured, like that drop drop drop wallride in LA. Never thought I'd see anyone get a clip there, yet Andrew finds a way. Great way to start off a Monday!

Zack Martin | Wasted SCS





I don't get it, how does Zack Martin do it? Yet another amazing edit all around from this guy, this time to mark the release of his well deserved signature Wasted SCS. This time in full VX, Zack brings a few new things to the table- loved the fakie tricks and that alley-oop grab in the pool was so sick. Support the dude and cop the SCS when it drops later this month!

. [RICHARD HARCK]





Most of you will either know Rich as Tommy Daddono's right hand man with Outset or as the dude who's house you stayed at for this Chicago jam this year. Either way, this guy is one of Chi's most present and unique riders. This is a video of him cruising around downtown, with those Scramble vibes. Sub to him on Youtube for more, he's always dropping little montages of him and the homies.

Tilt Takes Toronto





When Tilt set out for Canada this past summer after the Chicago Street Jam, they intended to only take a video days to film in Toronto and then move on to Montreal. Well, plans change, and they/we ended up staying in Toronto for the entirety of the trip. I think it was all worth it, as this video filmed and edited by Josh Smukal clearly demonstrates. I couldn't be more amazed by the scootering these dudes can throw down and how much fun is it to be around them. Enjoy.

RIP DYLAN RIEDER


You don’t have to be a skateboarder to know who Dylan Rieder was. His influence echoes throughout the worlds of scootering, BMX, fashion, and beyond. Today, those worlds were shocked by the news of Dylan’s passing due to complications from leukemia, which he had been fighting for the past couple years.

It’s easy to see the impact Dylan had on scooter riding. If you cuff your pants, he’s probably the reason why. See someone wearing a nice white button up while riding? That’s classic Dylan. But beyond the controversial fashion choices he brought to the action sports industry, Dylan possessed a skate style that transcended whatever he was wearing. His power, speed, and grace on a skateboard paved the way for scooter riders to realize there’s more to riding than tricks. He helped show that how you choose to ride a spot, the way your trick looks, can be just as, if not more rewarding as a rider and spectator than just adding another smith or whip into your combos. It was clear that this man was born to ride a skateboard, and that’s what so many of us have tried to emulate on our scooters. It’s an unthinkable tragedy for a person like this to go so soon, and I hope everyone takes a minute to remember and appreciate all he did for the world. Thank you, Dylan.

Rogue Wheels | Dan Barrett 2016





Dan Barrett has been hard at work the past few years not only with riding and filming but running his own wheel company, Rogue Wheels. Rogue recently released the first ever three piece wheel system (replaceable urethane), and dropped this edit of Dan to go along with it. Filmed and edited by Evan Yoh, this video has an awesome vibe and Dan's riding is always so technical and clean. Always enjoy anything this guy puts out.

Tom Kvilhaug: Welcome to TheCoCrew





TomK has been part of the CoCrew pretty much since the beginning, but this video is to officially welcome him. Not only is he featured, but the rest of the crew also has clips, which is really cool. I could really go on about Tom, but I'm just gonna let you all get to the video now. I will say that he just won the high jump event in the SMX Olympics with that last clip though.

Ethic DTC U.S CALI Trip





So last year the Ethic crew took a trip to the US to enjoy the sun, spots, and lifestyle of southern California. Maxime Legrand, JD Randriambelson, Alexis Letellier, and Johan Cajas are all featured, and as you can expect, some heavy riding went down. The flair tailgrab was one of the sickest things I've seen in a long time, all the transition clips were actually so good.

Helmeri Pirinen Summer 2016





Helmeri videos are always sure to take you for a wild ride, as he traverses up, over, and through terrain both man-made and natural. His unique take on the unique spots of Finland will keep you entertained and perhaps inspire a little creativity of your own.

Chris Gomes | Welcome to Root Industries





Its crazy how deep the talent is in Europe. I've never heard of this guy, Chris Gomes, before, but here he is getting on Root. Being from Europe, he naturally rocks the pegs and does some pretty nutty maneuvers on every rail and ledge in his path. Congrats to Chris for making it on Root!

Vlad Shishov - Summer 2016





There's something kind of endearing about lower-production value videos filmed in foreign countries to me. It's just raw, a kid just trying to capture the process of pushing his limits, with no real goal other than to film tricks. This guy, Vlad, is Ukrainian and shreds with one of those unique styles that you can only seem to get by living in some random, unusual place. Is he on Proto? Logo in the beginning seems to suggest so. Anyways, enjoy this.

LITTLE VILLAGE





Usually the day before the Chicago Street Jam, there's a gathering for the older dudes at the Tilt Shop where we shred the ramps, devour some barbecue'd food and consume many beers. However, because Tilt moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan, the annual prejam was held at Little Village Skatepark. The plaza was packed, we got there a little late, but were still able to get some filming done. Thanks to Tommy/Big E/Rish for manning the cam.

Chicago Street Jam 2016





Hard to believe this was the sixth year of the best event in scootering. It's always up in the air whether or not the previous year can be bested, but with some fresh spots and fresh faces at this year's jam, it was clear that this would be one for the books. Shoutout to Tilt and Forefront Supply for doing the behind the scenes work as well as Justin and Kirk for handling business during the jam. And mega props to Nick Tedrick, shutting the event down with the biggest 360 I've ever seen.
