On August 17th, 2012 competitors and friends began to arrive in our fair city. Solid street clips were acquired. The evening overtook us and we hunkered down to feast and imbibe libations.
The third installment of Yinzer Blading wraps up both the YB trilogy and my time in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For over seven years, I have been an honorary Yinzer, and this online project is my parting gift to those who explored the city with me. Exploring Pittsburgh is what this video is really about. Our crew has seen more of the City of Pittsburgh than most people who have lived there since birth.
I'll always remember this call I receive seven years ago. A girl told me that she was flirting with a rollerblader guy named Victor he was supposed to come to our town to visit his cousins see her and hopefully skate. We ended up living together six years later his room was a tent in the middle of my living room… (ask Micheal Garlinghouse or the people from the London time haha). This guy has so much energy you will see him destroy a rib high rail take off his skates drink a bottle of whiskey 5 feet of tequila shots on the bar, make an entire room sing old French songs ,end up in some girls bed he met in front of a night club waking up after 3 hours of sleep to complete a hard day of proletarian labour and he will still make you laugh. He is truly passionate human being and his devotion to skating is outsized. He deserves his place in the rollerblading industry so look forward to meet him!
After suffering the assaults of unfavorable weather on the first 2 stops of the tour, we were hoping to find some good weather down south. It's June 20 and we spent the day on the road again. Torrential rain and weariness does not facilitate the task of our driver, Yannick. He must guide our small group safely to Annecy...
Once again under gray skies we left the English capital towards Dover in order to board the ferry which would take us back to the mainland. The ride was rather good; we played games and we talked about everything and nothing, laughing all the way. After crossing 5 countries and spending approximately 10 hours on the water and the road, we arrived in Germany. Cologne was the second stop of this tour, a destination that also included only one day of skating so we had to be productive.
After a relatively easy van and rider pickup including Adrian Wallace, Jake Ricketts. Somehow we got to Dumbarton and the Unit 23 skatepark on time,in one piece and in dry weather. After a quick stop to pick up Chaz Sands who will now be joining us on the tour we hit a very packed Unit 23 to break in the new down box addition to the famous flatbank. It turns out the new box is indeed amazing and revitalises a park obstacle that has withstood 8 years of insane tricks from the best riders in the world sliding down the rails and boxes.
It's about 6am in the morning, I am with Nicolas Auroux and Mathieu Heinemann in this train bringing us to the meeting spot of the 3rd edition of the famous Nomades Tour. We are the first to arrive, quickly followed by Warren Digne and Robert Guerrero. Finally Mathias Silhan and Stefan Horngacher are here after a hard night partying...It's a rainy first day on our way to Calais, taking a ferry-boat to Britain's south coast.
Dirk Oelmann devoted his life to blading; in return, it's time we devote a bit of our time to him. The German blader and fashion-designer is featured in a video that has been selected for a film festival called WEBCUTS in Berlin. Voting is still open for this nice little documentary where he opens the doors to his work and life, as well as shredding the streets of Berlin!
At this year's FISE 2012 in Montpellier, France inline skaters are in for a treat.

Take a sneak peek at the obstacles that some of the world's best pros will tear up this weekend.

On October 28th the traditional skate season in Europe will come to an end. Now, hold on. Don't let your eyes start welling up with tears. Katowice, Poland's going to make it all better. Just because the streets will soon start to be covered in snow doesn't mean a thing, because it aint over 'til the fatty lady sings…or, until Katowice, Poland's “End of Season” jam goes down. When we mean down, we mean blowing up. This time it's going off with a huge event including tons of music, parties, ladies (and guys as well, so don't get all cranky, girls), booze, good vibes, good times, and of course some of the most ballin' skating of the year. There will not only be a contest for rolling, but BMX and ATB as well. This epic party is not one to be missed. So, saddle up, get that calendar marked up, and make your arrangements to get moving, today!
