Revolution 90 Seconds - Matty Schrock
How was your experience filming for the 90 Second Edit?
It has been a badass time. Filming with Jon is an easy thing. I'm used to filming with X, and he knows how I am so it was a good time. Being able to come to AZ to finish the edit was amazing. Coming out to AZ, skating a variety of spots, and ditches, seeing the scene out here, and going to the shop is all a kick a$s time. I wish a lot more places have what AZ has.
It really wouldn't be a trick or situation. It would have to be the day in Tucson. That place has so many damn spots, it's crazy, and there isn't even a big scene. But, there is a solid scene there that helped us get around.

What kinds of spots do you prefer to skate?
I enjoy skating the amazing ditches in Arizona. There are big to small, gnarly to easy ditches out here.
No, Dunkle didn't influence it. I have been skating flat since skates came stock that way, and I was pissed when they stopped coming that way. But, I was fu#king happy when I found out that Charles skated flat.
Growing up rollerblading in Bama plays a role in the mindset for my skating. When growing up with Dunkle, Rob Thompson, Trace Taylor, Garrett Slobey, and the rest of the Bama cult - the mindset was "Fu#k it."
- Matty Schrock on riding for NIMH
Who exactly are your sponsors? How do you feel about riding for Shima?
My sponsors are NIMH and LOWLIFE. What's it like riding for a dream? - it kicks a$s. I could not have asked to be a part of a better team, and riding for owners that have done so much for rollerblading. Being a part of NIMH is a big deal because it's pushing rollerblading in the right direction on how things need to be in the industry - "skater owned."
Yeah, that drop was a bi#ch. You had to drop in on a roof that has about 5ft drop to a bank. I went there 2 different days and tried it 5x. It got the better of me, but it will get done one day to come.
The song I chose was done by Henry Dunkle, who is Charles Dunkle's younger brother. Henry is an up and coming musician who is fu#king badass. Using Henry's songs means a lot because it showcases his music to a whole other field of people.
Having a Revolution 90 Second Edit means a lot to me. Being a dude from the south with so many bladers out west means a lot to have one. Also for everything James and Gretchen did to make it happen - thank you again.
