I was recently asked how a rider could get his submitted promo featured on ScootAm. The simple answer is that there is nothing you can do to get your promo featured.

Just about every year I forget about CooterCon. Then I hear about it, and kind of forget about it. Then suddenly it's a week or two before CooterCon, and I'm psyched. Every year I have a great time, see some great riders, and some great parks. Though I miss Skatebarn a ton, I also love Windells. Fresh clean mountain air, trees, and shredding. We will be there checking it out, taking photos most likely, but maybe some video too. So bring your skillz and have a blast! If you've never been to Windell's, you're missing out! Get on up there Saturday! Click the link for more info!
