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!
Last December Michael Kraft and I, friends from Be-Mag’s msgboard, embarked on 'BuddyTour'. I brought a new tiny HD video camera to film an edit of our skate adventures, and Michael brought a new tiny laptop to write his thoughts on many aspects of his experience with the trip. What came of it was a twenty-minute edit accompanied by a lengthy essay with elements of drama, heartbreak, rollerblading history, and drunken shenanigans not to mention plenty of undocumented great times with various buddies of ours in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Tennessee.
What follows is excerpts from a 30 page essay I wrote about Ian's and my mini-tour in December 2010. I've excluded some important, memorable events for brevity's sake involving Toy Story 3, a penis-obsessed Olympic athlete, Mike Lilly, and somebody pepper-spraying a sandwich. It is partly about rollerblading, but mostly a journal I kept while I was traveling. There are a few manipulations of time, but nothing drastic. Some paragraphs were literally copied and pasted out of context so it's not the most cohesive, fluent writing style. Deal with it.
Check out this video filmed at the Lawnwood Skatepark in Fort Pierce, Florida. Frankie Terranova captured this sweet pre Pow-Wow session filled with sick grinds performed under the hot Florida sun. Sit back and enjoy the dudes from Central Florida Rolling as they shred this park to pieces!
