D Block was a testing ground for a new type of jam format, The Rumble format. This has evolved over multiple attempts at other contest and it seemed to be the best fitting for a bowl jam! Overall the jam was a success, Dan Barrett took home first place and Best Trick, with his roomies Ryan Upchurch taking second and Cooper Klaar brining in third. Due to technical difficulties with the camera we were unable to capture a lot from the top 3. Special thanks to Logan Wright for filming and editing.
Maxime Legrand has built a reputation beyond anyone else among the riders of Paris. Known to many as “Le Baron”, Maxime has been a heavy hitter since his early riding. Dissidence Team Video One is where we first encounter Maxime’s riding; six years ago Maxime was still no stranger to the bar spin or technical balance.
His long lasting relationship with Dissidence and Ethic founder, Kevin Demay, explain Maxime’s rotations through the up and coming French brands. It seemed if the relationship with the core of the organization suffered for either Kevin or Maxime, they both would end up leaving the brand. It’s one of the few real brotherly bonds that exist in the sport. As time has progressed from French ID and Addict, Le Baron sits home with UrbanArtt and EthicDTC!
Wow! After that video its hard to imagine what’s coming next. His ability doesn’t seem to have any limits. The opening clip, fakie feeble 540 cab to FS smith nose manual bar spin, had me on the floor. How many times did your jaw just drop? Ethic DTC is about to unleash a new level of videos on the industry and I for one can’t wait. Welcome to Ethic Maxime! Stay tuned to Impact Scooter News for more updates and Ride PROfiles!
Big 180 from Maxime’s Addict So What Part!
Lets start off with the special thanks to Logan Wright for assisting in filming and Ian Herncjar in being our editor. The Marysville AM gathers together the up and coming shredders for a major street session. Getchell High School is practically perfect, it has big sets ( not shown), small sets, ledges, and a few rails if you got the hops. The scene in the NW is going to kill it as these guys mature… scratch that, they already kill it. Local brand ZG Pro Scooters made an appearance with Camron Ridley and Alex Fish, keep your eyes on them, they’ll be heavy hitters in years to come. Thanks to everyone who came out and hope to see everyone next year.
A Full Length video is a challenge for any group of riders, it requires an extended amount of dedication to filming and execution. The Toqued Boys started a just a joke passed around by this group of friends but has evolved to what should be an amazing group of riders. The group’s composed of Noah Foley, Patrick Schneider, and Brent Ikedah from Sammamish. These guys have been fortunate enough to be maturing their riding under the wings of the great riders that built their scene, such as Brent being the younger brother to Envy Pro rider Jessee Ikedah. If you were at Seattle Street Jam v2 then you saw Tim Hogan hold it down in the white button up; he’s a classy dude from Maple Valley and another young expert behind the camera. Up north in Chilliwack BC, Canada, Jayden Lee is a lone soldier for Toqued but really that’s all you need with him. Jayden’s got more tricks then I can count. This full length is set to drop at the end of the month so make sure to keep your eyes on watch for more info. You are not going to want to miss it!
Shop Mothership has partnered with Subway to promote the Washington Games contest for almost a decade. Each year young riders get to compete with their mates and push each others riding. Part of keeping a sport alive is fueling the competitive nature between participants. That isn’t to say we lose any fun in the process either. Washington Games will continue to be the flagship scooter contest for the Seattle area and I can’t wait to see it grow in years to come. Congratulations to Mikey Goverushkin for killing it in the comp and taking first place. No one ride the bowl like you man!
Johan Grunwald is a perfect fit for Blunt Scooters Europe. The Denmark community is lucky to have this shredder in their midst; Johan kills street and park while being an involved contributor to the industry. Last year he appeared in the premier team Blaqe Philly Trip video; by far brining the most technical combos to the east coast. Johan has been traveling with the Blunt Scooters Europe guys long enough. They made him family and from here on out we should expect to see more bangers and good times.
What a killer! This kids got style! Yago’s video was short and sweet with high speed tricks. The versatility of his riding was super impressive. Keep it up man!
When your talking about athletes in the sport your talking about Benj! Since the beginning everyone has known Benj for his relationship with Micro. These last two years he’s traveled the entire world showcasing their new line. The ability to comfortable maneuver your scooter so high in the air is breath taking. You get lost watching all the combos in this jam packed video. I really enjoyed the go pro point of view; going upside down isn’t really for me but hey Benj, ” do your thing!” Another great video from the legend himself and if you haven’t heard already his new Signature complete scoot is in stores now!
Tyler Bradley is a scooter fiend! He loves to ride and he loves the back lip! Groomed in Sammamish, its of course appropriate that he rides for local clothing brand ADVCT Scooters. His 2014 promo is short but banging. Tyler’s riding covers a wide range of technical combos being done at high speeds. Recently, Tyler broke his foot, leg and toes so unfortunately he will be missing in action for a while. Once he returns, Tyler will be heading to college in Southern California, meaning all year we can expect a new wave of Tyler bangers! Recover well Tyler, enjoy his ADVCT promo!
The Fin Scooter Shop takes to the streets and finds some interesting objects to throw themselves over in this nice video. They all keep it fresh with different tricks as they run around having fun on anything they find fascinating. The Fin Scooter Shop crew always seem to have the most fun when they all go out to ride, they seem not to focus on just filming as much as they focus on having a good time; but in the end it makes for a more entertaining video to watch.
