I had seen touristbladers before of course. Most of the time you would run into touristbladers at the local skatespots, and every once in a while you could spot a small flock of touristbladers in the wild. But nothing could have prepared me for the amount of touristbladers I witnessed the days leading up to one of the most anticipated real street events ever. Everywhere I went I encountered Mindgame hoodies, $enate backpacks, Medium sweaters and more of the like. Us Damsko Kids had been waiting for this weekend ever since it had become clear that the two grandfathers of real street contests would be working together on what was to become one of the most epic rollerblading weekends ever witnessed by man. This day had finally arrived. With it an unbelievable number of rollerbladers of all ages and nationality. Words fail to describe the awesomeness experienced by yours truly. Therefore I will not even attempt to bore you with more of my insane ramblings, but will let the pictures speak for themselves.
You don't just get the name 'From Hell' replaced with your actual, Dutch farmers name. This is a level of awesome that has to be worked hard for. You will have to put all principles and dignity aside, you will have to know no shame and you must act fearles at all times. Simply put, you have to not give a fuck and pull hardcore stunts on even more terrifying spots. So you can understand why us Dutch folk round here take great pride in the fact that Edwin 'From Hell' Wieringh is one of ours.
As you might have noticed this week we are spotlighting Rollerblading Amsterdam here on Be-Mag. Of course, we can't talk about Rollerblading in A-Dam without giving you an insight into the city's skate crew. So, what other people will you be meeting most likely when you decide to shred in Holland's capital - so here it is. A list of the Amsterdam Rollerbladers you might come across when you cruise through the city.
You can say what you want about Ivo Fighter and his undeniable skill to turn every conversation into an awkward silence. But this modern day incarnation of Jesus F. Christ is single-handedly responsible for breathing life into the difficult scene of inline blading in the Netherlands.
Here in Holland, we see Dick Heerkens as the Barack Obama of inline skating. And it’s not because he’s black or because he has a hot girlfriend. It’s not even because he is the president of rollerblading (that could be reason #2). Dick Heerkens is our Obama because he is so damn clever in front of the camera. Our perfect son-in-law-on-wheels is your best choice when you’re trying to introduce skating to a wider public, to get skating in the limelight of the media or to simply explain what a Fishbrain is to someone who’s never set foot in his local skatepark. Much like Barack, the 23-year old flow-rider for Rollerblade has a certain way with words that will make the most cautious girlfriends and auntie’s have respect for dropping hammers on kinkrails. Let Dick do the talking, people.
