In the Know: Create Originals’ Custom Ride System Frame

As many of you know we (Create Originals) have designed a new patent pending frame. We see it as not just a suspension frame but as a system of hundreds of configurations from rigid set-ups to suspension and everything in between. We call it the CRS frame or Custom Ride System frame. As a result of the many options you may have questions to the many aspects of the frame. For this In the Know we invite you to ask any an all questions about the frame system itself, what has led us to this point or why Kickstarter. Perhaps, you even have questions about Kickstarter and their policies that we can clear up for you.

In the Know: CJ Wellsmore

Although relatively new to the spotlight, CJ has had wheels under his feet since the beginning, and has been competing internationally for over a decade. Starting at such a young age and skating in the shadows of Australian legends like Cesar Mora and Matt Salerno has left CJ with an unmistakable natural style for skating, especially on transition. Since returning to his blades in 2005 – after a short break for beach lifestyle – in just a few years, CJ has refined his skills and established himself as one of the worlds top bladers. CJ's skills on the blades are undeniable, even to the outsider's eye, but what makes his skating even more enjoyable to watch is the fact you can tell how much he loves it. CJ still has the same passion for skating as he did when he first started, which I think is what's needed to inspire the next generation of skaters.

In the Know: Don Bambrick

Don Bambrick is a class act. Not only does he rip when he blades, but he can also beat some ass on a ping-pong table… a pool table… or a dartboard. Just not on a poker table... On any regular day, you might find him babysitting his nieces with his lady, working around the house, or cheering on the Red Wings. Don’s blading reflects an athlete’s precision along with an artist’s passion; he has an excellent eye. He is closing 2011 with the most refined USD Carbon yet, and entering 2012 with a no-holds-bar section for VX. Blading is on the up and up, and Don is right there with it.

Interview with Miguel Ramos

Miguel is one of the most incredible people I know. His heart is as big as the universe. As good as it gets! His skating has been incredibly good since I can remember. Miguel have been skating for 17 years without stopping! One of the few. He has done so much for the blading community in Puerto Rico, that I dont even know how to be grateful but to tell you that he is one of the best bladers out there that can make a difference in the world. Good people like him is hard to find. If there aren't people like him I dont think there would be a skating scene in Puerto Rico. For years he has been the organizer of multiple events and competitions that keep the blading community in PR united and motivated to keep on rolling. If someone in Puerto Rico needs to be recognize in the blading community, definitely, has to be Miguel Ramos.

Jeremy Suarez Interview

Jeremy Suarez is a Belgium hero, he is warm and caring, always smiling and joking around…he is a proper entertainer and a significant part of the Forward Freestyle Family. When it comes to skating, he’s the kind of skater that clearly does it with the love. Creative and powerful, you can see him blast a park course with the craziest lines and you’ll never know what to expect next, but you can be certain that it will be insane. Switch and natural is out of the picture for him and his progress is constant. He is an amazing skater to watch and if you ever skate with him, you know you’re going to have a good time.
