Austin Cooper’s latest part for USD, shot across Seattle and Los Angeles. Unfortunately filming was cut short for this project as Austin’s on-going ankle issue worsened. He is now currently undergoing a four month ankle rehabilitation treatment, for which you can donate to via his Gofundme Link to help with these medical expenses.
We hope to see Austin back on his blades as soon as possible… After the rain, comes the sun. Shot on location in Seattle and Los Angeles. Filmed by Joey Lunger, Dennis Lopez, Alex Broskow, Jake Dotson, and Jordan Taylor. Edited by Austin Cooper.

Help Austin feel his feet again - Polly Morris is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Austin Cooper.
Hi, a few months ago Austin started having numbness and pain in his feet. At first, he thought he just needed to break in his new skates and kept pushing through the pain waiting for it to get better. It’s slowly been progressing up to the point where he’s completely lost feeling and movement in his foot and it’s been spreading to both legs, feet and hands. He’s lost 35 pounds since March. He is unable to work, walk, use his hands, skate, film, leave the apartment or do anything that brings him joy and quality of life. At this point I’m genuinely just as worried about what this has done to his mental health as well as physical.
The hospital bills have already piled up to 15 thousand dollars and he still needs further testing including a lumbar puncture/spinal tap, EMG and nerve conduction study. He’s also started a 4 month treatment for peripheral neuropathy which includes laser therapy, vibration therapy, bio electrical therapy, spinal decompression, balance therapy, infrared therapy and trigenics. This 4 month treatment totals 7 thousand dollars. We are feeling very hopeful about the treatment. The treatment does not accept his insurance and his insurance wasn’t in effect yet when he was admitted in the hospital.
Austin has a long road ahead of testing, treatment and recovery. I just want him to be able to do whatever he needs and not have this huge financial burden. I painfully dream of him being able to walk again and in my wildest dreams skate again. Anything you are able to give will help. Thank you so much friends, stay cheezy. We love you all! - Polly Morris.
This year I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world competing in many skatepark contests, but every time I can, I go street skating with my friends to remind me who, as a inline skater am. Street skating is the reason I started skating , what made me fall in love with the sport. Couldn’t finish the year without a little section for USD showing a bit of my lifestyle in Barcelona. Hope you enjoy it. With the help of Xavi Eguino, Jinxo Films and my good friends I could manage to film some tricks between my contests. - Mery Muñoz.

The Aeon 72 XXI skate is the modern classic of aggressive street skating. USD took it right back to the drawing board with the design of this skate, shattering all expectations and dismissing the UFS frame system, completely reworking our understanding of an aggressive skate and bringing the design back to basics.
The unibody concept defines this unique design, creating the lowest, lightest skate possible with unparalleled energy transfer in every stride. One step back, two steps forward. With a single-piece construction, the weight is drastically reduced whilst the strength of the boot is immensely increased, you’ll never snap another frame again. The unibody concept allows for the widest H-block split possible, making this the best flat set up skate ever created, keeping you safe from wheel bite on all H-block tricks. The Aeon 72 allows you to ride a full flat set up of 72mm wheels and comes with the new USD Team wheels, which are fast and long-lasting.
The skate is completed with the dual-fit MYFIT liners. The stretchy neoprene toes allow for 2 sizes to be catered to with a single liner, giving perfect comfort and support in every session. The new WCD ABEC 9 bearings make this skate now even faster and the new soft top for the lacing even better looking.

Xavi Eguino on USD Carbon Free Carlos Bernal skates. Video made by Dexter. Filmers: Dexter, Pacoco, Mery Munoz & Michel Prado.
The USD Carbon Free Carlos Bernal is a well-deserved Pro skate for Carlos Bernal, who has been representing USD for many years and had made it way upright to the top, putting out hammer edits showing amazing skating. The carbon-free uses glass-fiber reinforced plastic for the shells base. This construction feels a bit softer than the carbon and offers additional flex and freedom of movement. The trainer like appearance gives you the lowest volume and creates one of the lightest skates on the market. The solid PU cuffs allow the perfect amount of flex, whilst providing sufficient support. The low profile sole plate complements the overall lightweight design whilst still remaining fast and durable on all grinds and slides. The soul plates and cuffs are available in a variety of colors giving you many customization options.
