AM Scramble Premiere

Despite a heavy storm, skaters from all over Southern California made their way out to Bradford’s studio in Long Beach for the premiere of the 2018 Am Scramble video. Most thought the ’17 Scramble squad was untouchable, however this new crew definitely gave ‘em a run for their money. Combing their way through TX with the likes of Sylla, Gartland, Ojanen, Van Vark, Summers, Bannerot, Henry and the Deflinos, we all knew we were in for a treat and this year’s Scramblers sure as hell didn’t disappoint. Good luck getting gnarlier in 2019! —Alex Papke
