The Freestyle Scootering is not that old adventure sport. It all started in the decade of 1990s when Gino Tsai with his Micro Mobility Systems and the JD Corporation both joined hands to manufacture first ever scooter. The Sharper Image became the first distributor of these scooters in 1999 and it took a very little time to become popular. Razor Images was founded in California USA and with the popularity of these scooters the company sales took off and the Razor Images started manufacturing its own scooters under the name of Razor Scooters within a year of the scooter launch in the USA.
In 2000 Razor Scooters created its own team and released their first video called ‘Razor Evolution’. The scooter revolution was just begun in the USA at that point of time and it started to grow like anything. The first ever Freestyle Scootering tournament was held in the year 2006 at San Diego and it still remains the biggest scooter related tournament ever in its brief history.
