Basique CPH and The Vault Pro Scooters
Ed Benedict Plaza in Portland, OR
Worst injury I’ve suffered while riding has to be a severe concussion I sustained while riding at FDR in Philadelphia when I was 15. With the doctor being too pricy, I simply strapped on a helmet over the “squishy” knot on my head and kept moving for a successful rest of the day. After the swelling went down I realized I permanently have a flat spot on my skull from that fall.

It’s hard to only name one, but one of my favorites was stomping the Frontflip over Travis Pastrana’s backyard mega for a day filming with ESPN. I shot almost 60 feet over a sketchy vert wall that would’ve meant sure death if I came up short. Luckily, I got close the first go and landed it the second time around.
I always loved Jessee Macaluso’s videos - the guy is legend.
If given correct supplies - Horchata or Chai Tea.
Being with all of your friends haring the same love for getting the blood pumping via bowl line or box run.
After being by the shop a few times while on tour I knew I wanted to contribute to what was going on at The Vault. It was early 2014 that I joined the crew and have been loving’ the Vault life since!
