World champ Dakota drops in to Scoot69 in Gloucester
FRESH from defending his world championship scooter title, teen icon Dakota Schuetz dropped into skate shop Scoot69 in Southgate Street to show off the skills that have made his name.
Dakota, 17, from California defended his 2012 International Scooter Association title last weekend at ScootFest, held at Stoneleigh Showground in Warwickshire.
His appearance at the skate shop was a first in the UK, with Debbie Foot from Scoot69 hailing his appearance as a real coup for her family run business - and the sport in Gloucestershire.

“Dakota is a fantastic role model and the evening was a huge success,” she said.
“We had just over 300 people over the course of the evening. He is only 17, but so level headed. Dakota is a straight A student in California and wanted to show the other children how important school is.
“It was the first time he had visited a skate shop, he usually just goes to skate parks.
“It was a real privilege. After he had signed lots of stuff, he was teaching tricks to those people who had turned up to see him.”
