Wheel ScenePlatform Episode 62 – Mick Casals
from Wheel Scene on 21 Sep 2022

I’ve been a huge fan of the Texas blading scene for decades and Mick Casals is leading the current charge, along with the rest of the Austin-based Candy collective, with his smooth, technical skating and additional flourishes which make his skating standout as something truly unique to him. He has produced brilliant parts in full-length videos Waterloo, Candy and Out of Tune, and his latest section in Ends made me want to talk to him and find out more about the guy. He had a pro wheel from Bloom earlier in the year, which was accompanied by an edit that could hold the Guiness World Record for most wall rides out of grinds in a single section.Mick came across as a laidback, mellow kind of guy who just seems to take life as it comes, although he was very clever not to incriminate himself at various points during the interview, so clearly he knows when to talk and when to keep his mouth shut! Mick has a great collection of parts on YouTube, which I thoroughly recommend you check out when you get the chance. He is planning on moving to Denver soon, so hopefully it won’t be long before we see more new footage from him.Check out Mick Casal’s brilliant new section in the latest Anthony Medina video Candy, which you can buy here – https://candy-blading.sellfy.storeAlso, if you would like to support Mick, you can purchase his new book here – https://www.mickcasals.comMassive thank you my Patreon supporters: Josh Allen Faction Skate Company Chris Archer Reto Burgin Jumpstreet Podcast Rene Dillon Neil Owen Samuel Brownlee Stephen Johnstone Micki Toft A Parker Dean Bradley Bill Campbell If you would like to join the Wheel Scene Patreon and be entered into a monthly prize draw for Wheel Scene merchandise, visit my page here – https://www.patreon.com/wheelscene Visit our our online shop – https://wheelscene.bigcartel.com Follow Wheel Scene on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/wheelscenebladingInstagram: wheelscene
