Lucas Fehringer


I first met Lucas upon exiting the TGE van at the TSI BBQ, after driving for two days to get to the foretold of land of the Pacific Northwest.  Lucas’s style immediately stuck out amongst the sea of people navigating the TSI parking lot.  Whether it was just cause he looked like the lead singer of Nickleback, his mix match shoes and socks, or because of his endless flow and making everything look so good and unique, I knew we would be friends.  He ended up catching a ride in the van with us for the next week as we made our way towards Seattle, and he synced right up with the crew, getting clips and having a grand ole’ time.  We became good friends and I really enjoy Lucas’s style, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to give him a little feature on Trendkill.  These are just some extra clips he had, be on the lookout for more killer stuff from Lucas in the near future.

How was your summer?
Really sick, I got to go on a lot of trips this summer.  I went to Portland street jam with the homies Jackson, Austin, and Xando, ended up goin’ in the TGE van from Portland to Seattle, that was without a doubt one of the sickest trips I've ever been on, as well as going to Cali for a week and hangin out with you and Zack and all the homies down there.  Didn't get to film quite as much as I wanted to, but I made some progress.

And Where are you from, how long have you been riding?
I'm from Eagle, Idaho, which is the same town Matt Grippi lived in when he was in Idaho.  I started riding scooters about six years ago.  I used to bike and skateboard, but scootering was most fun to me, so I stuck with that and it's been a good time ever since.

So, do you have any projects you’re currently working on?
The Boise band full length "love it or hate it" we have been working on it for the past 1.5-2 years; stoked to put a full length out with all the bois.  It'll have parts from me, Jackson, Xando, Jake Hamilton, Mitch Lergét, Mason Walters, and then a split part with Yung shredders Tyson Hagood and Austin Coates.  Edited and Filmed by the homie Max Fulton, it's all vx2000 and vx1000 footy, all of which is in the Treasure Valley/ Boise area.  I have some other stuff I'm saving for something special that's in the works though, super stoked to get that stuff out there, hopefully by next summer.

Do you have any ideas about what your future will look like?
For now, I'm just trying to film and ride as much as possible, the plan as of right now is to move to Portland in the spring with Jackson Brower and Xander Williams, but other than that just riding and trying to film every day.

But is Xando really leaving SLC anytime soon???
He's been settling down with this girl named Hannah and he tells me that he's planning on leaving once he graduates, but we'll see what happens.  Regardless I'm trying to make the move to somewhere with a bigger scooter scene, maybe east or somethin’, time will tell.

Why do you want to pursue scootering?  What about it makes you tick?
I don’t know, really.  No matter what's going on in my life, scooterin is always a way to clear my mind and really just focus on something else, just riding my booter goin’ on morning cruises at the park, or night riding in the city with all the homies, no matter what it's always a good time.  The freedom to truly do what I want to is pretty sick, as well as filming a trick for hours just for that feeling of satisfaction after landing a trick you never thought you could.

And who, or maybe what, are your biggest influences?
As far as riders go, Matt G for sure influenced me a lot, I've been watching him ride since I started.  About 3 years in I started smoking weed and that made a huge influence on my riding, not only that, but the people I started riding with, Mitch Lergét, Jake Hamilton, and Jackson Brower, I feel like all four of us have had a huge influence one another.  Not even so much the smoking, that just happened to happen around the same time I started hanging out with them and actually started filming.  I used to lowkey be a park rat before that, then I saw the OG Lucky shit, with the 2 piece decks and when Stefan and Tyler were on Lucky.  I watched their videos soooooo much, that's like what turned me on to riding street.

Hell yeah, the old lucky vids are the shit.  What was it like going up to Washington and riding some of those spots and parks that you saw from a young age?
Sammamish was a trip man, I tell you what.  That was such a sick opportunity, getting to ride that park, especially with all the Washington homies, the TGE dudes, and the lucky OGs themselves James and Evan.  It was crazy how different things were from how I imagined they would be, seeing it all in videos, but the experience overall was sick as fuck.
Any last words?
BOISE BAND 4 LYFE BUIIII.  That's all I really got to say tho thanks B💖

John Cottle, formally known as Jcott, or just Cott, is a staple to the east coast scene. Known to travel all over in search of cutty spots and good times, but is usually found in NYC working on the new ScooYork video, or showing visitors around and helping them get clipped up. Cott is always hooking up the homies with VX1 clips and keeping vibes while out filming top notch and fun. Jcott is a good friend of mine and we're stoked to have his part up on Trendkill! I picked his brain a little as well, as is fitting for the release of his part.

How does a normal day in NYC start for you?
Most days start off sobering up at the bagel hole on 7th Ave, then meeting up with the crew at a park to warm up.  Riding in New York is way more than just showing up at a spot and and getting a clip.  The best part is mobbing the streets through traffic, cruising over bridges, and hunting for spots with the homies.

Who are the homies you're usually riding with in nyc?
I'm glad you asked because I have so many friends I ride with who don't get enough recognition in New York
Trevor pritchard, Erik Deptula, Mankong, Yara Haynes, Bryant Colon, Mike Anesini, Jonathan Acosta, Salvador Gonzales, Eric Harkless, Mario Bowers, Zack Clark, Shawn McHugh…  I know I'm missing more, but you'll have to see when the ScooYork full length comes out haha.  Besides Trevor and Shawn, I met most of them at the first NYC street jam in 2012.

So where are you from originally, and how'd you start scootering? I'm from northern New Jersey, lived here my whole life.  I used to skate in middle school but In highschool I met a good friend of mine, Anthony, who introduced me to scootering.  I would ride his pro model at the skatepark until I finally made the switch.  I was really lucky to meet other scooter riders in my area when I first started, Trevor and Shawn.  They showed me the scooterresource forum, where I got to see how big the community was, and I was straight hooked.
SR was soo lit, the mecca haha.  When did you start filming scootering? SR was the shit, too bad insta took over.  I actually bought my vx1 the same year I started riding, and she's been treating me good ever since.  I guess before scootering I was always influenced by pissdrunx/baker/beagle and all that, so of course I wanted to film SD, It just looks right to me.  I was always hyped to film and edit, making video is a big part of it for me.  I used to look forward to posting a new edit in the video gallery on sr to see everyone's comments, I wish it was still like that haha.
But isn't it kinda even more like that now, with instagram? I don’t know about all that haha, different vibes.  Instagram is like a popularity contest or something.  Not to mention its disposable, everything is forgotten in two days.  But I guess it's cool how everyone is connected at the same time.
So like obviously the remedy for the insta culture is releasing content that strays away from the constant stream of near-meaningless shit, so what are you guys working on now in NYC? I've been putting a lot of work into this ScooYork full length.  I try to come out at least every weekend to get shit done.  I feel like everybody generally thinks the east coast slacks, especially NYC; In reality a lot of us are actually out riding in the streets more than anyone else.  There's a lot of talent that needs to be recognized.  I want this full length to show how alive the New York scene really is and basically what the fuck we've been up to the past year or so.
