After six years of running the Panhandle Pow-Wow, Blake Taylor has figured out how to run things smoothly. I've seen him stress over previous Pow-Wow events, but this year it really went off without a hitch. His only complaint all weekend was: "We really need a water sponsor."
This years best trick at the Panhandle Pow Wow goes to... Mark Wojda! Mark pulled out a huge 540 and took the prize. Congratulations Mark!
Things are getting started here at Pop-Wow VI. We filmed a little 'test run' of some of the new boxes built for the contest, and the park is currently filling up.
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.
Preparing for months for one of the biggest competitions in Florida, Bladesgiving has turned out to be one of the funnest and biggest rollerblading events in the Southern United States along with the Pow-wow. And we are only in our second year! Skaters gathered from all over the country for a chance to rank up the WRS points and take home some cash and the huge trophy. Tim Franken, out of San Diego, Razors rider Wake Schepman, out of PA, Pro SSM rider Joey Chase and Razors flow Sammy Chase, out of Orlando, just to name a few. Also, coming all the way from Canada was our good friend Kevin Lapierre, who hurt his ankle warming up, and had to drop out of the contest. He made that huge trip, and our sympathies are with him, and we hope he recovers very soon.
This must have been the nicest weekend Jacksonville had ever seen. Definitely hot, but perfect skating weather. We arrived at the park around noon on Friday, several hours before the start of the Under 18 division contest. After a few to-do's and touch ups, the Under 18 was under way and went off without a hitch. I remember some tricks from this contest that made me wonder if these kids where really under 18. Such as Zach Pollak's Full Cab Ally Oop Mizou, cess slide in, then his huge disaster back Royale on the cement ledge, or Tyler Huston's Tru Fishbrain. Everyone did an amazing job! Congrats to Zach for taking home first. Later that night, it was straight to the MacBook with Scotty Swemba by my side to work on the first Be-Mag live update.
Check out this edit that got released today. The course seems to be different and unique, so is the skating! Enjoy.
David Johns from Orlando has been jumping around at the Pow-wow exclusively for Be-Mag. And as you see in the picture set below, David is not only the guy that tries to get the best skating shots, he is also deep in finding good and interesting content apart from the skating. More pictures by David on Be-Mag real soon!

Over the past two months, I've been meeting up with David Johns to film for what was going to be the first of many Insight profiles on our newly launched media base, CFRtv. Here we will be showcasing talents from all over the state of Florida with Insight profiles, interviews, clips of the week, session edits, and our one day segment which will consist of following a Florida blader for an entire day documenting their every move. David is one of the coolest, most laid back dudes I know and he loves to be on his blades. When he's not valeting cars at Universal Studios, taking photos, or spending time with his girlfriend Megan, you can find David killing it all over Orlando which this Insight profile shows you. Take a look and get to know a little bit about David Johns. -Frankie Terranova
