It’s exam time for Brandon James so he’s currently deep in revision, but kindly found the time for a quick interview with Scoot-Mag.
SM – Hey Brandon, how did it all begin for you? Scooter riding that is, we’re not asking for details of your birth!
BJ – Well when I was about 13 I got a scooter and just started messing around on it and then started watching videos of Terry, Coedie all the beasts of the sport back then so then started trying some of the tricks and really enjoyed doing it so yeh ….
SM – What is your riding style?
We caught up with Ollie Thompson to have a quick chat about his new 64 Bar Clothing edit.
SM – Hey Ollie. New edit looking pretty sick. How did you get into scootering?
OT – Ahh cheers man, well it started when I got a scooter for Christmas almost 2 years ago. I used to just hop off curbs with my local friends, then I saw videos of people like Perry, Terry etc
Scoot-Mag’s next interview needed to be with someone who ruled the street. It had to be Danny Roberts!
SM – So Danny, how did it all begin for you?
DR – Basically it began with a normal day at the local, got out the skates and was rolling around. Then some kid who we had never seen before turned up on some ghetto quickstep scooter with one grip and was just lurking around. I took of the skates, wacked on my trainers and asked for a go. The kid was cool and within a few attempts of trying tailwhips I finally rolled away from a spread-eagle whip and I was so stoked! This then lead to my interests of riding, and I was immediately on Youtube searching up scooter edits trying to get a real insight as to what can be done on scooters. With the help of Coedie Donovan – Punk Scooters edit and Matt Mckeen’s – Dream Team Supreme vid. Finally Googled scooters and bought my first JD Bug (Anodized Black) from Skatehut in November 09. And it all started their pretty much.
Next up in the Scoot-Mag.com hot seat is Ryan MacNamara.
SM – Yoo Ryann! hows everything going in your scooting world?
RM – Pretty good to be honest, been planning on going to the razor tour stops and seeing as I have hardly been to any of the big skate parks in the UK, I can’t wait.
Here at Scoot-Mag we wanted find out a little more about some of the biggest names on the UK scooter scene. So where better to start than with Madd Gear UK’s Graham Kimbell.
SM – So Graham, first of all how did it all begin for you ?
GK – A loooooong time ago scooters became a huge craze where I lived. My other brothers and their friends all bought them and so did I, but because I was so much younger than the rest I didn’t quit before the scene really took off.
