Revolution 90 Seconds - Matty Schrock



















MattyHow 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.


Matty
Which trick or situation was most memorable for you while filming for your 90 Second Edit?

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.


".....growing up with Dunkle, Rob Thompson, Trace Taylor, Garrett Slobey, and the rest of the Bama cult - the mindset was Fu#k it."

MattyWhat 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.

When you received your new NIMH Shamans from Shima, we were setting them up at the shop, and you set them up with 58mm wheels flat. You've been an avid 4 down skater - explain why you choose to rock your setup this way? Dunkle influenced?

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.

MattyA skater at the shop said a comment to you the other day that stuck with me. He said "man, you take the gnarliest falls." Your response was also pretty good. You said, "yeah, trust me, I'm not trying to on purpose." But, you are a skater who fully commits more often than not, you either lace the trick or eat sh#t. What is your mindset for your skating?

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."

".....it's pushing rollerblading in the right direction on how things need to be in the industry - skater owned."

Matty
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."


MattyYou had your eye on dropping off the roof into the famous white banks here in AZ. What happened with that?

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.

Your song you chose for you 90 has some sentimental value, explain the connection to the artist.

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.

What does having a Revolution 90 Second Edit mean to you?

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.
