Grab a beer and prepare to witness this hard-as-nails scene in full force!
It is common knowledge by now that the 2013 Panhandle Pow-Wow had a few setbacks. With a relentless rainstorm overhead people still gathered at the park during the day and the bars and hotels at night. We huddled under whatever shelter we could be find and talked and laughed. Some even ventured out into the park to walk and skate around and inspect the obstacles that this legendary park had to offer. Something also happened that year to set the tone for years to come. There were a special group of people that attended that year, who despite the weather, stayed at Kona and camped out under tarps draped over a swing set and with dying flashlights continued to party on. It has been said that those people communicated to the blade gods and asked for them to grant us a sunny day to hold our event for 2014. And the blade gods answered blessing everyone with an amazing experience the following morning, and hopefully for years to come.
Alex Broskow’s promo edit for his new Valo V13 "Coffee" Pro model has hit over 40k plays in just one week online. And as with every other Broskow web/video section, this one has quickly caught the attention of everyone with even the slightest connection to blading. We caught up with David Sizemore (who filmed and cut it), and with Alex himself to get an insiders look at the making of this already famous edit.
Over the past years the Pow-wow evolved to one of the most important blading events of the year. Bladers from all over the place are making their way to the legendary Kona Skatepark in Jacksonville Florida, to enjoy a weekend of camping, music and of course great blading from some of the worlds best riders. We have compiled the most important facts to make sure everyone is well informed before leaving towards Kona.
For the second photoset of Motor Town Classic, Sam DeAngelis captured the vibe and personality during the event. You will recognize quite a huge amount of familiar faces.

Motor Town Classic is NOT Bittercold Showdown. Founders Noah Zipser, James Fisher, and Sean Quinn have been a huge influence in the Detroit rollerblading scene for years now and have taken it upon themselves to keep tradition alive! Detroit and local natives, these fellas have been shredding and supporting the Modern Skate Park scene for years. Tune in as they tell you the story of Motor Town Classic, following Bittercold's history, and their expectations to be an event to be reckoned with. Also look out for some sneak peeks of Winston Wardell and Dre Powell as they warm up for the Pro Contest this Saturday.
