Freestyle Scooters

I thought that Shaun White scooter was just some marketing gimmick for a kids toy. Apparently they're pro level shit. Who knew there was pro level scootering.

Prety much all x-games type sports are marketing of kids toys....

The shaun white scooter actually is a gimmick. That is a terrible scooter. And yes there are professional scooter rides.

This guy here is pretty insane.

Scooters.......something to ride if you can't figure out how to peddle a bike. Seriously though, almost all of the scooter tricks are BMX tricks. And they ALL look better on a bike. I just don't get the scooter thing for anyone over the age of 10.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

My friend found a shaun white scooter on the streets and took it. It's a really solid scooter, better than Razor and it makes that brand look more like a toy. It feels like one solid piece and a full grown adult can feel safe on it, it'd be nice to have higher handle bars.

SW partnered with a real action sports company to use his name, but he did not sell out to some Walmart/Target brand company. It's good to know he won't sell out when it comes to endorsing snowboarding products or scooters. His pro model boots from Burton is one of my favorite and I wore it for 3-4 seasons. I just hated his video games and it was not on the level of Tony Hawk Pro Skater.
