Must Watch – Scott Powell / Decade Anthology: teaser 3

Decade Anthology: teaser 3 from scott powell on Vimeo.

In this day and age of instagram and social media, footage can often get whored out and it doesn’t get the respect it deserves.
Sitting on footage is always a tough one, and I have respect for anyone that can do it until they are happy enough to release their footage with that fear that someone will drop what they have been working on for however long. I am sure you all reading this as flatlanders will know exactly what I am talking about. I don’t have the exact timeline, but I would say Scott has been collecting clips for at least the last year and half working on his “Decade Anthology” part, it is also easy to dismiss this as just decades, when you look deeper there is a lot more going on than just one technique.

With that said, the wait is almost over for the final part that I have been itching to see over the past year. Teaser 3 does not disappoint, infact it begs the question what the hell does he drop in the final part?

Personal Standouts for me:

The opening fire hydrant triple decade with brakes (00:33), and brakeless version at 1:22, the opposite fire hydrant double decade again brakes and brakes versions at 00:39 and 1:16. The multiple upside down decade line is executed perfectly at 1:40, not to mention the fire hydrant brakeless triple decade at 1:22 begs the question is Scott sitting on a quad?!

Hell of a lot of skill an effort has gone into perfecting the skills you just witnessed, respect to Scott Powell for this one! Hitting the replay, I forget to mention the Applecrate to peg to decade without touching the frame, I recall only ever seeing one other person do that, RIP Paul Palmer. Aside from the tricks, this is really well put together, hitting the rewind. What a great start to the week!!

  1. I saw Scott riding at the AFA comp in Detroit last year. Big style and LOTS of energy make his riding so fun to watch. I’ve always been a fan of the decade and can’t wait to see what this anthology wil hold!

  2. LEGEND – Top 5 flatlander on the “ever” list. Not like some of the other pro level riders that do the same tricks for 10 years.. If you look back from the 80s until now he has a more diverse trickionary than just about anyone .

  3. I still remember how bad I wanted to learn decades when I first started riding as an 80’s kid in junior high, and how sweet it was when I came back to flatland and finally learned them in college after years away from riding. That feeling of jumping over and stomping down on the other side of the bike and still being in control enough to ride away is timeless for every flat rider, and this anthology is a great tribute to that. Respect!

  4. That brakeless triple decade was smooth as silk. Definitely raised the standard on how these should be done. Well done!
