Stunt Scooter Riding is quickly becoming the new rage around young people at skate parks all across the world. This is probably because it is so much fun, reliably easy to learn, and the list of stunts and tricks seems endless. This fantastic emerging sport is definitely one to watch. In this article, we'll I will talk about the sport and the type of scooter you'll need.

An Emerging Sport

Some of you may remember the rising skateboard movement of the 70's, right? Well, probably most of you will not! But just like the skateboarding movement did, stunt scooters are emerging from the shadows. Scooters are not just for little kids anymore. With new technology, cool styling, and lots of riders performing amazing stunts, the scooter movement is taking the world by storm.

You will now find at pretty much all skate parks some young people who have well built scooters working on their tricks and stunts. Is this legit or some passing fad? From what I've seen (And I've looked into this in-depth), freestyle scooter stunt riding is here to stay. And in my opinion, you're seeing the beginnings of an extreme sport that will meet or exceed the popularity of skateboarding. And let me explain why.

Why is this becoming so popular ?!

It's really really. You take something very simple – a scooter. And then riders go and do all these amazing tricks and stunts with it that require skill, creativity, and lots of practice. Now you have a legitimate sport that tons of young people want to try out for themselves. It's all really very neat and fun. And it feels so new and hip. Not old school like skateboarding. And having tried out some of these top end scooters myself as an 'old person' I can vouch that this sport is loads of fun. In fact, I grew up around lots of skateboarders in my day and even tried it out. But it never connected with me. Stunt Scooters on the other hand have simply been heaps of fun and I feel like a kid again. My little ones and I are having all kinds of quality time together on these new high quality scooters doing hops, stalls, 360's, manuals, and all the rest. It's all great fun and certainly better than staying home all day playing video games.

Modern Stunt Scooters

If you're still thinking of those foldable scooters that have blinking lights built into the wheels then you need to think again. Scooter construction has come a long way recently. You will find the kind of technological advances common in established sports like cycling and skiing. High end manufacturers are making scooters that will stand up to the abuse that a day of stunts at the skate park requires.
High quality alloys, precision machining, and name-brand parts are all incorporated into new designs which are lightweight, very strong, and very cool looking. Let's take a look at one of the most popular high quality brands.

Madd Gear Pro

MGP has been around since the beginning of the Freestyle Scooter movement in Australia ten years ago. So they know what's up and what's needed in an excellent ride. I've really checked these out carefully and they are definitely my favorite. If you're looking to get into this rapidly rising new sport, then you'll want to consider one of these stunners made by Madd Gear. I ride one myself and it's made all the difference – what fun a well made scooter provides for me and my kids!
