I got broke off something awful at the first spot. Between dealing with the injury, having the pup attend the event and typical booth duties it was quite the hectic day. Luckily I was still able to break out a camera a tad bit at some of the spots.
Cheers to all the heads who have held this contest together. Doug Williams for never giving up, Brad Anthony for stepping up and delegating the shit out of the whole thing. All the volunteers who helped raise money and promoted the event. Floyd and the RIOT sk8park for letting us get busy the night before. Most of all, the competitors, literally rain or shine, stayed determined to put on a good show. Attitudes were tremendously positive and love was all around.
14 years strong, The Kentucky Battle, like water, flowed through the streets of Louisville. Not one spot was a bust, no broken bones, no fights, plenty of ganja and plenty of solid tricks on them blades. Though, I had no intentions on filming anything, I am pretty pleased how this little number turned out.
At times I feel myself lost within this industry. Constantly confused where it is taking all of us. At the end of the day, I just consider myself blessed to know and love so many talented people. The rise is still very much real. The sky is the limit. The best part of all, next is number 15. – Chad Anthony.

Bowling Green, Kentucky has a giant concrete park. Over the course of a couple of months, at weekly Tuesday Night Skate sessions, some aggressive rollerblading was done. Some of it was captured on camera(s) and with that footage comes this joyful edit.
It turned out to be one of those kinds of edits that make you smile while watching it. Featuring some unique skating by well known skaters and a handful of future doods. Please feel free to like and share. This one goes out to anyone out there who still has a good time skating with your homies. Never stop having fun. This is how we rise. – Southernscum.com.

The UseleSS Tour is steady ripping through the nation. One of it’s most recent stops was in Long Beach, California.
Just in time for the Long Beach Festival and qualifying rounds, for this year’s Blading Cup. With bright sunshine, cool blue skies and a supporting audience, this contest was nothing short of a success.
This is a Macon Deals Production. An online quick vid, presented by Southernscum.com.
Featuring skating by Seth Lloyd, Ray Kronenberg, Julian Bah, Montre Livingston, Philip Moore, David Sizemore, Carson Starnes, Chris Smith, Anthony Armstrong, Michael Braud & Sam Moore.
Sadly enough, the regular van trip was not orchestrated. But as you can tell from the edit above, Southernscum made it to Pow-wow, and we were in full affect.
Too many memories were created, and it was nothing but sunshine the whole trip. Between the camping, the conversations, the water, and the blading, we had such a good time we stayed longer than planned. The Pow-wow is always an inspiring experience, no matter how you get your taste.
One thing is for sure, the southern region of the United States offers a contest once a year in Jacksonville Florida. Just as southernscum, it is a vertebrae in a well oiled machine that is churning towards the top. There isn’t anyone, or anything that can to stop us. We will continue to push forward, continue to rise.
Thank you to Blake Taylor and The Pow-wow crew, for another amazing weekend. Thank you to all the new friends for allowing each of us to get to know each of you. Thank you KONA sk8park for bending the rules for a few hundred skaters. Thank you to all the other companies that ran booths and showed SS so much respect and love. More than anything, thank you to all the competitors, when it became show time, you each turned up.
Catch you next year Florida. – Southernscum.com.

I’m steady healing a collarbone/ shoulder injury plus its very cold outside. Rollerblading is far, few, and between right now.
I am having to spend an awful lot of time behind a stupid computer screen, getting new product together and pushing my buds.
I have been sitting on quite a bit of 8mm footage for sometime now. Mixed it together with various skating from older video projects from the last couple of years.
There is a couple of new pieces also, but mostly stuff from other blade projects.
I can’t wait until the sunshine is back out, really gonna get in there deep for the 14. Thanks for supporting the rise, and please stay tuned. – Chad Anthony.
The last 3 years in Nashville has been nothing but a treat. As a crew, we have really came together for numerous amounts of projects!
Years ago an edit was made to this exact song, just not the whole thing. Cameron Martin felt inspired to finish it off.
Though it is heart breaking to realize this is the last project we will all work on together for sometime, it is good to see everyone still put forth the effort. It features so many faces, both new and old.
Nashville Tennessee is and will always will be a backbone to southernscum and rollerblading in general. God Bless everyone in this deal, may you all shine bright for all the world, in all you do.
In memory of Brandon Jesus Negrete. Marquee Moon, a new Nashville Edit by Cameron Martin and all the doods.
A few months ago, we as a company decided that it is time to bring on some new young talent. Southern Scum has never had an official team, simply a great number of representatives. But just as everything does, the company is steady growing and wants to reach out to up and comers and help put them out there.
We are lucky to get this guy involved. He is a powerhouse and pure talent. He is traveling to the states in the new year to travel with a few other SS heads around the U.S. to get some blading done. We are blessed to have him becoming part of the pack. Looks like we are just going to get in it even deeper.
