Adapt Brand was founded in 2012 by Pieter Wijnant and Olga Bouwhuis and was officially launched at last year's Winterclash. The Dutch based company is still going strong and they are releasing new and improved models for 2013. Be-mag took some time to speak with the pair at their office in Den Haag to discuss the growing pains of a new blade company, product innovations as well as the collaboration with Be-mag on our limited edition 15th anniversary boot.
Finally the wait is over! Sven, once again shows his skills as a Skater and also as a visionary and project manager! Its been while since Rollerblading had a concept that can capture the attention of the masses the way that Cityhopper did. Check out the vid and judge for yourself if it breaks out of the norm of Rollerblading edits, we are convinced that it does and that such projects will "Spread the Word!" in an absolutely positive way. Enjoy..
On the 14th of August the EC Halfpipe Contest went down in Rotterdam, Netherlands. If you appreciate good vert skating – or maybe haven't seen it in a while and want to catch up – you need to check out this edit!
Last Saturday the first round of the Dutch Championships took place in Rotterdam. Adil Farhouni from Almere won this first round in the senior category. The winner in the juniors division was Tasheed Zaalman from Rotterdam. An overall ranking will determine who will become the new Dutch Champion after two more events, held in the next four weeks. This Dutch championship consists of three rounds at three different places in the Netherlands. The concept is unique since all the competitors get to skate together for a couple of minutes, which gives them more time to impress the judges.
Jordan Maders from the UK just got into the Netherlands. He will help us out with the live-updates. Yesterday they visited the Skateland in Rotterdam. Stephen Swain destroyed it there. Right now they are on their way to Eindhoven to check out the new obstacles and shred it up there. So check back tonight. Next update is coming up soon...
I know Giorgio for quite a long time now. In all those times we experienced some perfect skate sessions, road trips, vacations and parties. He is a good filmer and editor and also produces his own music. Everything in the Rollerdam online rollerblading videos was done by the man himself! Lately he has been doing quite well with his music. It's really nice to see all the time and effort he put in now starts to pay off. Giorgio skates the same as the relaxed vibes from his beats – relaxed and with much ease. It's always nice to see him rollerblade. Take some time to read the interview and see that, after more than 10 years in the game, Giorgio still loves rollerblading and everything that comes with it!
Martin van Drunen, or you know him from the Rollerdam series (online videos), Conference edits or interviews on Be-mag...i think you'll agree that this guy always comes hard! The only skater I know inside out, but still he always finds a way to make me say WOW! We've skated this rail frequently but never will you see Martin do a trick on a spot he already did. It's hard to be fresh.. but its even harder to stay fresh and thats what martin is all about! My favorite rollerblader!
Giorgio Oehlers, no new kid anymore, but a respected name in the scene. Winner of the Winterclash Amateurs in 2008 and the man behind the Rollerdam Vol.1 & Vol.2 series (online movies) where he has, in both, an amazing profile. Giorgio is also a guy who you'll never see practising, he tries the trick once and laces it first try like if he is being doing the moves for years already. Check out this 'one minute one spot' on a rail in Sliedrecht (the Netherlands) where he simply kills it. I don't know that many people who can skate a rail like that and don't even fall one time the whole session!

A pyramid-shaped bank-to-bank or bank-to-wallride spot, place can be a bit crowded
A place with several marble ledges that all have a sketchy run-up but slide really good
This rail is around knee height at first but ends at around breast height, good run-up
Rotterdam is a popular destination for Rollerbladers - not only because of the famous Rotterdam Skateland, but also because of their unique Streetplaza that was built in 2009.
