Want to talk skating? Saw that awesome bird in a tree earlier today but have no idea what it's called? Pain in the gut, feeling dizzy? Ian Copp to the rescue! Being it countless polls for nearly every (relevant) topic in Blading, 'bird fagging' or remote diagnosis from the other side of the globe, members of the Be-Mag message board sure are familiar with Ian Copp. Or 'ian from tampa' for that matter. Well, it's Miami, actually. Ummm, where did we break off..? Oh yeah, Ian being the man. He once again cut no costs and spared no effort to bring you the third edition of his infamous 'BuddyTour Series' and actually delivered it – and that's kinda unheard of in the Rollerblading business – on time. Enjoy!
Introduction by Be-Mag
Write-up, photos and edit by Ian Copp
This summer edit is a continuation of the 'BuddyTour Series' I started with Michael Kraft, but I haven't been on any skate trip or tour. I've entered a point where my life has become 'BuddyTour'. After moving back from the Caribbean in April, I spent a month in Tampa, six weeks in Atlanta, another month in Tampa, then visited cabins in Alabama and Maine. Between living places I've passed through Macon, South Carolina, Chattanooga, Orlando, Gainesville, Tallahassee, and Miami.
Specific fall plans are a mystery for now, but my next few years should continue the trend of living various places briefly and skating in and between resident cities whenever I find time and bladers.
