Adrian Deck is way more awesome than Google Translate. The latter never won Winterclash, shredded the hell out of multiple handrails at once, or made the following badass blading edit. Adrian took the time to talk to us about skating, social media, anger, pain and his home country. Thanks a million to Adrian, for taking the time for this interview, for ripping hard and for letting us see him do it. No thanks at all to Google, because me and Adrian made this readable our damn selves.
While shooting with Be-Mag for Issue #40, Leon took also additional shots we couldn't use for the print interview. Here are some nice behind the scenes shots!
You know.. I've been around long enough to watch every generation of NYC skaters since day one. And although it doesn't happen everyday, it's always a pleasure to see a young star like James shine out of the bunch and become one of the leaders of progression in NYC.
Welcome to a new column. It's pretty much obvious what it's about, but to be more specific, Be-Mag Games will focus on mobile games. Being a rollerblader, to many of us, means spending a lot of time travelling. If you own a smartphone or tablet, I am sure you've downloaded the occasional game to kill time during your flight or train ride. Angry Birds? Temple Run? Knew it. To make sure you get a break from evil green pigs and killer monkeys I will review my favourite games for Android and iOS. This will not always be the latest release, but for sure a gem that will tie you to the screen whenever there is too much free time.
CJ Wellsmore has been a well known name in the blading world for a hot minute now, but only a few have gotten the chance to witness his blading prowess in person. This all changed when CJ got involved with Seba Skates, whom could provide him with the means to travel across the globe, and showcase his blading capability and to promote his yet to be released ‘Seba CJ Wellsmore Pro Skate’.
In this new Be-Mag series we'll be zooming in on the sessions that some of your favorite bladers are having right in their hometowns. Brian Bruno was more than happy to provide us with the first Hometown Session, straight out of Bloomingdale, Illinois.
Iain McLeod has been around for what seems like forever. The 29-year old ninja from California is still shredding hard and recently received a new pro-skate from Razors. He doesn't plan on stopping any time soon: 'I just still love rollerblading too much to quit'.
