Tim Schmidt is a extreme rollerblading legend. It was an honor to be able to live with him at his private ramp in West Lafayette, Indiana multiple times in 2016.
Here is a short video that was filmed on his thirty seventh birthday. He wanted to shoot a solid video for his sponsor, Rollerblade. This gorgeous piece of history is what panned out. Featuring Cameo skating by Philip Moore, and Mike Messenger.

Schmidty’s Ramp, along with The Blade Museum, SVZ, & your favorite scumbags came together & organized the first annual Schmidty’s Ramp and Camp Mini Ramp Contest/ Rail Jam. Held in West Lafayette, Indiana.
We wanted to get the real experience, so we spent 5 days RV traveling, late night partying, bond fire grilling, lake fishing, swimming, bathing. Most importantly ramp skating & down rail grinding.
The majority of our trip was captured on the skitch VX, & will all go to the Born Free Tour Video. But, I was able to whip out the old Death Lens App a couple of times to grab these magic moments.
Big shout out to Tim Schmidt & Savannah for once again allowing us to ransack their property & invite way too many people. Huge shout out to Cameron Card, Tad, Kazu Mori, & Lulu for giving everyone of us something to strive for. To see two families willing to risk so much, travel so far, all in the name of rollerblading is truly magical. You all deserve all the great things headed your way. Cameron, you are a ripper bud. Thanks for stopping by the RV for that session. We were honored. Congrats on the 1st place victory.
Thank you SRC for letting southernscum & company be part of such a memorable experience. From this point on, nothing will ever be the same. LONG LIVE ROLLERBLADING. PS. Tim, sorry for paddling over the property line. Those Chicago heads always get me going! What a tremendous way to say good bye to the summer!
What would rollerblading be without the dedication of street contest(s)? The Kentucky Battle began in year 2000. We just finished up the 16th-19th contest. Just as each year before it, things got messy. Though it was an injury free event, Philip Moore & fellow skater boys went extra hard.
Here’s a tiny bit of what happened at the last spot. The majority of my day was spent behind the lens of the V. The tour video will now have an entire section donated to the KY Battle. Maybe this week will be the week the tapes start getting imported. Prolly not though. – Southernscum.com.
This web edit features skating by : Andrew Broom, Jason Howard, Rob Z., Mick Casals, Eddie Dombrowski, Brad Anthony, Josh Broughton, Anthony Medina, Heath Burley, Josh Ferguson, Mason Richards, Logan Dench.
We just recently returned from the trip to Detroit. Today we pack & move into an RV for the Born Free Tour. Therefore not a whole lot of time to talk about our experience in Michigan.
So here’s a quick chop up if some iPhone footy from the weekend. Congrats to Luke, Yuto & Don for the top 3 wins. Shout out SP (& fam) & LJ Fanti for the hospitality. Shout out Zac Straight & James Fisher for pulling off the chilliest vid premiere ever!
Skating by Scott Hatton, Elliot Feltner, Stefan Brandow, Brandon L Thompson, Travis Rhodes, Yuto Goto, Eiji Sakihara, Don, Luke Nasty.
Iphone footage pre, during and post the 7th Annual A-Town Stomp 2016. Thank you to the Starnes family, the local squad, the beautiful city & all the homie! This is our 100th video on Vimeo! – Southernscum.com.
Various Kentucky Battle fund raisers have been scheduled through out the state all summer long. We spent this last weekend in the city of Lexington.
The first bit of footage is from the day of the event. It started of with rain, so it turned into a giant game of SKATE on pvc. When the sun came out, we made our way behind the school to the wall rail and solo brick structure.
The next half of the footage is from the Sunday following the event. The entire edit was made of donated iPhone footage & filmed as a group effort. Because that is what Kentucky seems to do so well. Team up & do things as a group. It is quite the state to be part of & it will always be home.
The 15th annual Kentucky Battle is in Louisville, Ky this year in September 2016.
