Riders like Mitch Baldry are helping the sport of freestyle scootering gain mainstream recognition.

    What the hell was that? Imagine the abuse this guy too learning the tricks. I’ve never seen a skate park where you can rock up on a scooter and not catch flack… I’m just imagining people’s faces as they tease the guy just before he drops into a bowl and pulls an inverted triple bar spin.

      A comment on my own post. Looks like a lot of skateboarders hate skooters. I don’t like the name scooter but the actual thing itself is not a problem 4 me.
