Chris van der Merwe is an inspired blader. He grew up in a small town in the centrer of South Africa and caught the blading-bug when he was 11 years old. He moved to the coast at the age of 22. At 29 he's now a married man, still shredding on a regular basis and even getting new kids on blades in the process. Read on to find out about the sessions in his current hometown of Somerset West.
Earlier this summer Drew Bachrach spent a week in Boise filming his first ever short film titled KOOK. It's a story about two kids from a small town in Idaho who spend the day together and find out that they are actually from entirely different worlds. The film will be out in early 2014, but you can check out the first trailer right here.
Antony Pottier has been shredding hard for years. He never ceases to amaze with big tricks and technical switchups at competitions all over Europe. Seba Skates recently added Antony to their team, and the Belgian powerhouse has been pretty busy ever since. He still found some time to film this sick One Minute One Spot though. Check it out!
The Texas Skate Series San Antonio competition started off the way all San Antonio comps do, meeting up at San Pedro park. It was originally a ledge spot in the middle of town that eventually was designated as a "skate park" of sorts where they added a nice p-rail, curve ledge box and the famous angle iron ledge. It is not much but it is a perfect meet up spot for a competition like this. Being that the comp was on Easter weekend there were already people camped out with tents trying to secure their spot of the park for the Easter festivities.
Adrian Deck is way more awesome than Google Translate. The latter never won Winterclash, shredded the hell out of multiple handrails at once, or made the following badass blading edit. Adrian took the time to talk to us about skating, social media, anger, pain and his home country. Thanks a million to Adrian, for taking the time for this interview, for ripping hard and for letting us see him do it. No thanks at all to Google, because me and Adrian made this readable our damn selves.
In this new Be-Mag series we'll be zooming in on the sessions that some of your favorite bladers are having right in their hometowns. Brian Bruno was more than happy to provide us with the first Hometown Session, straight out of Bloomingdale, Illinois.
Iain McLeod has been around for what seems like forever. The 29-year old ninja from California is still shredding hard and recently received a new pro-skate from Razors. He doesn't plan on stopping any time soon: 'I just still love rollerblading too much to quit'.
“It’s alright, just my fingers innit!” That statement came from Jake Ricketts, after falling far and fast to the concrete, breaking two fingers and going back to nail the trick and the AM first place. It pretty much sums up the badassery that rollerblading in general and the UK scene in particular is so proud of, and it was on full display at Laced weekend.
Today we're very proud to announce the birth of the first official Be-Mag wheels. These little round babies feature the infamous Eulogy urethane and measure up at 58mm/89a. Our favorite designer Tim Wolff came through with some sweet graphics. A limited amount of sets will be available at Winterclash and BCSD, so act fast!
Zagreb has had a long love-hate relationship with rollerblading, ever since 1995. A few generations of skaters have come and gone, dropping rollerblading for more trendy stuff like skateboarding and drugs. There has always been a small group of people that kept things going, with edits, a few homemade videos and contests of all kinds. The first of the monthly rollerblader sessions in the indoor skatepark Supica was a call up, to see who's still alive and well.
Our good friends Noah Zipser, James Fisher and Sean Quinn organized the Delta City Open #3 in the heart of Detroit. Hawke Trackler filmed, chopped and edited this fantastic HD video from the skating that went down.

Check the nice edit of a german trip to instanbul this summer. Istanbul is a spot paradise!
The Toronto rolling scene has been through it's up and downs over the past decade. With the emergence and death of it's first skateshop (Dekalz Shop) We once had a scene that was strong, only to find it now in the regrowth stage again. I highly appreciate having the scene in Toronto still alive, and I give thanks to people that contribute to the scene like Shop-Task, and Roll Toronto.

Well let me start off by saying the the Chosen Few Germany competition is going to be huge. Thanks to our premium sponsor Grindhouse Skate Shop we have 600 € for prize money plus another 50 € from our support sponsor Razors. Add that up with a ton of product, great skating, big crowd and sick spots and you've got yourself a street comp you won't want to miss. Organized by Quinn Feldman from ACHOSEN-FEW.COM, Maik Lojewski from rollTogether and the ever talented Daniel Prell. This competition had been in the works for a while now and we're all set to go. Not only will the competition be amazing but make sure you have a place to stay because the after party in the party city of Stuttgart will go down in a big way after the comp. Make sure you don't miss out! -Quinn Feldman
Jestrzebie's Zdroj competition aims at amateur and professional skaters and BMX/MTB riders. The competition itself will be held in a form of a jam session, a few minute heats where a number of skaters/riders show off their skills at the same time. The best of which will proceed to the next stage. This promotes face to face rivalry and is very entertaining for the spectators. The organizers have also planned a Best Trick competition to provide some breath taking stunts for the audience. The Inline skating part of the event is also a great opportunity for riders to collect additional points for the Triada Polish Rolling League.
On October 15th the "Rolling Dead"-contest will take place at the YMCA Skatepark in Fort Myers, Florida. Don't miss out the fun.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is that time a year again. The 15th Annual Hoedown Invitational at Eisenbergs Skatepark in Plano, Texas goes down October 28-30. Another fifty competitors will arrive from all around the world for one of the most memorable and legendary skate comps to happen dating back to the mid-'90s.
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!
Pull out your Droids and iPhones, open up that calendar app, and set November 20th on high- reminder alert because Rollkings.com is hosting the second annual Believe in Blading Jam. The event will be held at the Transgression Skatepark in Edinburgh. The name alone should get the fire lit in your gut because if you can't believe in blading, then you shouldn't be here. Represent your sport and make it out for this one. There will be under-16, am, and girls sections for the comp with a lot of prizes for the taking. Last year's RollKing event was a day jam-packed with insane skating, so you certainly do not want to miss this one.
On November 25th, there will be a Street Jam in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The event will move through three street locations and eventually wind up at a skatepark for the final section. If you are from the UAE you may want to join the gathering.

Thrashers Skatepark is probably the oldest skatepark left in South Africa. It is located on the corner of Serene Street and Genl. Louis Botha in Pretoria-East, South Africa.
If you are in Stone Mountain (USA) looking for some ultimate curb experience, the DeShong Skate Plaza is the place to be. The skatepark is without any transition, but is well equipped with most of the obstacles for any street skater.
