My name is Mikel Artega, I have started skating with Aritz Ortega and he is one of the guys I know best. Since we were kids, his passion has always been skating. Everyday we went rolling from sun up until the sun went down. Even when he was really young, you could notice that he was going to be "someone" because he always stands out over the others. He has the "gift" and a technique that you cannot see in other skaters. He rarely fails, but when he does, he learns from it an keeps on and on. He is a really focused rider.
Rollerblade rider Jeremy Suarez has been flying under the radar for quite a long time now. We're not sure why that is though. The tricks he pulls at park competitions all over Europe sure aren't the reason for this. Watch out for Jeremy at Winterclash 2012!
Nicolas Schopfer came in 4th place in the Am division of Winterclash 2011 and will compete Pro for the first time this year. Read on about his memories of bearded friends, the joy of last minute preparations and the urge of "keeping up with friends"...
It's a real pleasure for me to introduce the "One Minute One Spot" for my friend Nicolas Schopfer! I've known Nic for more than a decade now. I remember him skating back in the days when he was a 1,20 m tall kid skating in his blue Salomons and with his huge helmet – hence his nickname "Mushroom". From then on he never stopped skating, kept improving, always striving for perfection. He's now the great and stylish skater we all know! Thankfully Nic is always motivated for a little session. I'd say even more so now that he started editing etc. He's the one who brought me back into skating when we went to Malta after a few years break and I'm really grateful to him for everything!
After two pseudo trailers it's time for the real thing. Making a 3 minute skating edit wasn't worth the trip, people had to see what Malta was actually about! I'm glad this makes my Maltese friend Brandon proud of his island. It's even more beauti...
As most of you probably know by now, Malta is a small island with big potential. I thought it would be a shame to simply make a 3 minutes edit of a 10 day Tour. There were so many things to see, I'm even gutted I didn't film more stuff is some other cities we visited during our stay, but in my opinion Malta deserve it's first real Rollerblading Experience. We've skated "hard" for 10 days and even after that, Brandon managed to get some extra clips for the video. So here goes, Official Trailer/Teaser! ENJOY!
Our journey continues and we've made some new friends and we bring you for this update some more stories and screenshots of the upcoming "Malta Experience Edit". Enjoy. (Tour is over, so the days mentioned in the text are from last week!)
For the last few months now I’ve been pleasuring myself – or should I say Kaltik’s new flat frame has been pleasuring me? Either way it doesn’t quite sound right! The truth is I’ve been skating this revolutionary frame and they’re surprisingly amazing! Amazing I tell you!
The tradeshow is about to start and so are the AM Prelims!
Kaltik has been going strong for many years now with the UK and Ireland being its main markets. As of recent, Kaltik created a lot of buzz within the community by releasing their latest product the "Stealth Flat Frames", a frame with an uniquely shaped h-block to allow for a new experience in flat skating. Be-Mag sat down with company owner Conor Manweiler to discuss his approach with Kaltik, his views on the industry, product developement as well as Kaltiks new flat frames that have just hit the shops.
Some clips gathered over the weekends from the past 6-7 weeks. Big thanks to Conhuir Manweiler at Kaltik Hardware for the support over the past 3-4 years. -Stephan Swain
A section put together after five days in Holland. Thanks to Jeroen Wullems and Timmy van Rixtel for putting up with us for the week. Also thanks to Conhuir Manweiler for supporting me over the past three years. -Stephen Swain

Josh is an animal on the blades. His style is raw and he can skate any terrain put in front of him. Kaltik scooped him up over the summer, which makes perfect sense. He's a ruthless 8 downer who still likes to make sparks. Hopefully you enjoy this section, cause we had an awesome time making it. Filmed in Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland. -Danny Beer
A new edit of the UK's own Julian Coulter, filmed during the winter months in Barcelona.
It was 2 years ago when I went to French Guyana for my first internship organization Roller, in the overseas territories with the regional committee of Guyana 973. After much demonstration on my part, I had promised them that I will return with a professional of their choice. They have chosen without hesitation Mr Stephane Alfano to see his now famous 1260 °. Things promised things done and when this summer came, Stephane spent two weeks at my side in order to support these young people and show his talent. The fact to remember is that he came in a totally voluntary for the sake of all Guyanese. Following this experience, Stephane chosen to come and live in Guyana for one year the time to bring all his experience to young riders Guyana. -Anthony Avella
Reto Bürgin just released his latest edit: "Living In Geneva". You can see Reto shred the streets supported by a sweet soundtrack in the beautiful environment of Geneva, Switzerland. Enjoy.
Kaltik rider Stephane Alfano is killing it in the Forward Skatepark in Roeselare, Belgium. Watch him doing some of the sickest tricks and literally destroy the park.
Stephen Swain has just released a new edit. Blading in the UK Skate Park, he drops some of the cleanest and smoothest tricks. It all looks so effortless. Right there is the definition of style.
A selection of raw clips from the Kaltik Team Video and The New Irish Rolling video on their tour in California. On their first day they skated a ledge in Hermosa, a Rail at a mall in Los Angeles and a ledge at Venice Beach. Sick blading from our Irish friends.
