Blading With Chef Knives: Pomodoro

California ripper Mike Obedoza isn't just nice with the blades on his feet, he gets nice with a chef's blade in his hands too. Here he brings us up to speed on how to muster up a tasty meal for you and the homies.

In Depth: Daniel Prell

Daniel Prell - what to say about him? Well, everybody knows his passion for droprails, best with a shitty runway and landing. But do you know Daniel without his skates on? Ok, that doesn’t happen that often as he shreds his local rails in nearly every weather condition and with whatever injury he has.

The Blading Cup: a View from Under the Ramps

Ivan Narez, Erik Stokley, and I arrived at Jon and Viola Julio’s loft around 4:30 Thursday morning. Ivan slept most of the way in pure exhaustion from finalizing the details on getting copies of the Shred ‘Til You’re Dead II book, DVD, and Blu Ray that were releasing the next day. By that time, I had been awake nearly 24 hours and about five of those were driving from Walnut Creek to Santa Ana.

Chosen Few Comp at We Are One Skatepark in Utah

When us skaters talk about doing it right or being professional Zach Nelson and Matt Farnworth are people that come up quick under that definition. They are the owners of We Are One skate park. A skate park completely built by them personally for rollerbladers. This indoor park was professionally done. Nice wood, good coping, everything slides for a change even before you wax it, It's like skating woodward. So ACHOSEN-FEW.COM decided to team up with them to do a nice crazy competition the first week they officially opened the park. We decided to make the format a street format considering it is a part of the Chosen Few street comp series.

Nomades Tour 2011 in Milan & Venice – Photos by Jean Christophe Baller

It's about 7am and we are on the outskirts of Milan in Italy, searching for the hotel which will serve as housing for the next 3 days. Warren Digne, the conductor of the tour took care of booking it and it is the honeyed voice of our GPS which took us right to its front door. After a short tour at the reception, surprise, we will not be in the space provided, but in apartments a few steps away.

Last week my friend Jason Adriani called me saying that he got a message from Adrien Anne who told him that he will be in Milan with the Nomades Tour during the week end. I thought that I should take this chance to have a good session and to take pictures for my website, so I packed up my skates and my camera and took a train to Milan on Thursday.

Stephane Julien – Exclusive Interview and Edit

Stephane and I have been friends for 14 years. I know him as much as I know myself. We have been through so much together, kind of like two soldiers that fought side by side, you know? Steph is an extraordinary human being, he is always there for you if you need help or something. I have seen him going through many faces in his life. He is working hard on becoming a better person and seeing that is such an inspiration for me and all the peeps around him. Skating wise...? Well, I will let the edit speak for itself. All I can say is that skating with him is a true blessing in my life. Thanks Stephane for being a brother to me. I’ll see you tonight anyway at the TAZ session!
