One day I was talking to my friend Kevin in BCN when I was there chilling at the Powerhouse (the biggest thanks Richie E. for letting me stay haha) and when we were talking he asked me if I would like to film an ''Up and Comers'' section for Be-Mag. I didn’t believe it in the beginning, but when I wrapped my head around the concept I was trying to blade as much as I could to get the best clips for the video! As always there were high and lows, tricks, bails and injuries so in the end I didn’t get as many clips as I wanted. I didn’t get to do the last planned hammer for the edit because of the contusion I caught along the way. My head is still woozy so I'm sorry if the edit isn't good enough for you, but know this – it would have been better if my head was made of metal and I don’t care what you think!
Razors has been kind enough to hook Be-mag up with some fresh copies of their latest DVD called "Children of the Future". It was filmed and edited by Erick Rodriguez and features breakout sections from Alex Burston, Howie Bennett, Josh Glowicki and their latest addition to the pro team, Korey Waikiki. The video also spotlights seasoned veteran bladers like Iain McLeod, Jeph Howard, Dre Powell, team manager Brian Aragon and many more. Want to get a copy for yourself? How does free sound?
Razors has released a new video called "Children of the Future". The trailer dropped a few days ago and Be-mag asked a few questions to some of the riders who have breakout sections.
At Be-Mag, we like a good photo. But who are the guys that put in the work to bring you the the hottest images from the skating world? With our 'Photographer Profiles' we want to shed light on those people. In this article, Piotr Glodzik talks about how he started taking pictures, where his hobby has taken him so far and so on. Of course, he also shares with us some of his best images.
A couple of weeks ago we were sent a DVD with the sounding name 'TIME'. Return address was somewhere in France. Unprejudiced as we truly are we popped the video in and... were really impressed. 'TIME' is not only put together really well, it also showcases French blading in a way that got us juiced for more. We recommend this DVD to anyone, but especially to the folks out there that rely on the mistaken interpretation that the French are all about spin to win.
I've known Jason for a decade now and the first word that comes to mind when thinking about him is 'dedication'. And the second one is 'leader', no doubt. During the past years Jason used to skate no-fun-at-all-super-high-dead-drop-rails on a daily basis with a to-do list of tricks to improve his skills. This meant that he was skating alone most of the time because nobody in his city and just a few in Italy would be able to skate the same spots. Today, Jason has grown to the best all around blader that Italy has to offer and his attitude makes him a role model for the young and a great asset to the Italian scene. He is always the first to put his blades on and the last to put them off. His dedication is contagious.
Brian Moore is about to release his new DVD 'The City Never Sleeps'. After more than two years of filming for the video and a $10,000 investment Brian has finally come to an end! Watching the teasers and considering the positive feedback the film got after its premiere at the Hoedown Contest in Dallas you can be sure that this release will get your ass up from the sofa and strap on your skates. Although Brian said that he did this video mostly for himself, we think that this video is made for everyone. But decide for yourself: an in depth interview, two trailers and Brady Johnston's section from the video should provide a good basis for your decision on whether or not to get the flick! All of this after the jump…
So, this is it? The 15th and final Showdown at the Hoedown, or at least at the current location. It's been a great ride, and I agree it may be time to move on. I've managed to attend all but the first Hoedown, and every year I am impressed by not only the level of skating, but the level of community this event brings. It might start with the fact that Eisenberg's Skatepark is a family run park and Miss Vicky, Arlo's mom, is in attendance cheering on the skaters with the rest of us. Whatever it is I want to personally thank everyone who has ever been to a Hoedown be it to skate, watch, or just get drunk in the parking lot – we call it tailgating in Texas – it's been a lot of fun.
It wasn't my first time in San Marino's Fardamatti Skatepark but it was my first competition there and I had so much fun! There was no pressure, it was just a session with all my homies!
Some of you may already have heard about Rollfest – the annual gathering that brings polish rollerbladers together during one summer week at seaside resort Triocity. This year we celebrated the 10th anniversary of this crazy event which was special in every possible way. Since 2009 Rollfest was able to serve as a gathering for even more participants due to the Baltic Games festival, which is treated as the climax of the Rollfest. I can easily say that's the biggest and most prestigious skatepark contest throughout the year. With attendance of bladers as Alex Broskow, Erik Bailey, Fredrik Andersson, Alex Burston, Dre Powell, Nils Jansons, Mark Wojda, Fritz Peitzner, Josh Glowicki, Scott Quinn or Dominik Wagner – just to name a few – you can be sure to expect a show of highest levels!
At a party in late March, Fritz joked with me about filming a section for the video. At the time I thought nothing of it, just drunk talk. Of course I wanted to do it, but the premiere was in May and I didn't think we'd have enough time to get it done. After Rob, Ian, and Mason went down with injuries, I became worried the video wouldn't be finished in time so I decided to hit Fritz up and take him up on his idea. A couple of trips to Dallas and a couple of filming sessions in Austin later... he came through like a boss. -Anthony Medina

Adrienne Anne is back on Classic Thrones, peep edit. Filmed by Allan B, Antony Pottier, Roulio, Josh Glowicki, Tomez, Json Adriani, Roman Abrate and Fritz Peitzner.
'Dallas Days' is a montage made to try and bring back the old feeling of Dallas excitement full of big sessions and a wholesome scene rather then the going out solo and filming individual sections, which it has recently become. The Dallas Scene, to me, was an inspiration growing up and lately I have been watching it slowly disperse and no longer have that feel of a scene but more of a few individuals. Making this edit has showed me that the scene here in Dallas, Texas is as big as it ever was and still going hard in the paint. -Kristian Payne
The Texas Skate Series went to its second round. Congrats to Dylan Cobb for taking the win.
