Freestyle scootering catching on with kids all over the worldPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- If you've seen people do skateboarding tricks or BMX freestyle stunts, then you have a good idea what freestyle scootering is all about.
It's an up-and-coming sport. In fact, the International Scooter Association was established to give this burgeoning sport and its aficionados some structure to support their growth and development.
The Madd Gear Pro Deep West Coast Tour is in Arizona for a couple of days so you can see for yourself what these amazing riders can do.
Madd Gear's Team USA is made up of Anthony "Twan" Bustos, Tyler Bonner, Joe Armstrong, Capron Funk, Peter Jungsberger and Collin Dasilva.
Bustos gave 3TV's Javier Soto and Kaley O'Kelley the lowdown on freestyle scooters and even taught them a beginner's skill called a "bunny hop."
