So you’ve come to Amsterdam and brought your rollerblades. Congratu-fucking-lations. But exactly how are you gonna get you and your sorry crew out of the coffee shops and into them boots? Conventional wisdom says you need a spot guide. But conventional wisdom talks out its ass. Spot guides are useless because spot guides will only tell you where you could go. Which isn’t nearly the same as knowing where you should go. So, to help you prevent wasting precious sober-time on second- or third-rate spots, we proudly present: Play your cards right! – The definitive Amsterdam spot guide.
Sven Boekhorst made a bold move back in 2007 when he organized the first Mind The Gap. His new contest featured only a couple of ramps and one big gap, but it turned out to be a success. Skaters loved getting airborne and big crowds witnessed some great blading. Five years later the flying Dutchman and his friends have cruised countless miles around Europe with their ramps in tow. Sven has no intention of stopping any time soon, but he did take some time off his busy schedule to celebrate the fifth anniversary of his brainchild with us.
Be-Mag has teamed up with Grindhouse and Rollerblade to bring you yet another skate raffle. This time we're hooking up one lucky Be-magger with a complete RB Sven Boekorst 2012 blade that are equipped with new Blank Frames, new harder/faster soul plates and 60mm/88a wheels. If you're an avid Rollerblade skater or just want to give them a try out of curiosity it's worth your while to enter this contest. And who doesn't love free blades? Why would you even want a blade from Sven? In the immortal words of legend Ryan Jacklone, "What's that kids name? Sven? He's ill. He tried to do some super ill spin to some super ill topside trick. My "leg doesn't go this way" trick." If you want to do that trick, listen to the Riggler and enter this contest.
'The Breakfast Club' is the newest video project out of the Netherlands, aka Holland, or for some people just Amsterdam! That is precisely where the maker of this project is from. We are speaking of Cavin Brinkmann, supported by his sidekick, the no less infamous dog Bobby! Cavin is the dude that you see dancing in those crazy Dutch edits. Do not get the wrong idea though, Cavin is a guy that puts all his energy into what he does. Living in Amsterdam has not made him a drug addict that would abandon skating for a high – skating and filming skating is his high!
We are reporting live from Den Bosch in the Netherlands! Just a couple of minutes ago a local politician handed Sven his first ever Pro model. It took a successful 18 year long career combined with 16 years of riding and working for Rollerblade to receive the crown of it all, a pro skate. This is not the common Pro model story, which should be obvious if you have been following the media over the last few days.
You may have heard of this new skate brand from the Netherlands, 'adapt'. You may also already be friends with them on facebook. If the latter is the case, you might have noticed that they weren't providing too much info about what they were actually brewing over there in Holland. Well, this now changes with this very Company Profile on Be-Mag. Olga Bouwhuis and Pieter Wijnant founded adapt 20 months ago because they saw potential for hand crafted skates made from high quality materials. And here they are now, explaining to us where this has taken them so far.
The BOK is the oldest competition in the Netherlands and it has the best vibe. That is why skaters from all over the country come specifically to this skatepark in the east of the Netherlands. Check out this report of the event!
The idea for the Breakfast Club Tour was to rock Belgium and France in a van fully loaded with nine skaters. We ended up leaving Amsterdam with only the four of us in a VW Con-fucking-vertible off to Belgium. Arne Elgersma, Bojd Vredevoogd, Marnix Haak and Robbert Snijder. Our tour planner Bojd spent the last few weeks looking for the finest, most ghetto abandoned places to get some unique footage for the DVD. The first weekend we ended up skating an old pool, a theme-park and spent the night in a creepy half demolished hotel called 'Kosmos'. Exploring these places at midnight was a great adventure by itself.
Timmy van Rixtel and Jeroen Wullems got 100 € for a skate demo and decided to spend the money going on a small tour through the Netherlands. With no plan where to go they managed to find lots of new spots and had lots of fun. Sleeping in the car and being hungry was their daily routine. They asked people for money and sold old stuff. That's how they survived.
As of today, the name 'Breakfast Club' will no longer only remind us of the essential 1985 movie, revolving around five students discovering the meaning of life after school hours. Dutch skate pioneer Cavin Brinkman, responsible for countless captures of the tricks from every Dutchie to ever touch a pair of skates, such as Tyron Ballentine, Adil Farhouni and Sven Boekhorst, has found himself in the middle of his newest, highly anticipated project. His new skate film will carry the same title as his favorite movie, 'The Breakfast Club'. Set for a release in the beginning of next year, Cavin's new film will not be just another run-of-the-mill hour filled with hazardous hammer and death-defying spins. Instead, the members of the New Breakfast Club will simply amaze their fellow skaters and fans with their inspiring creativity, attention for detail and raw Dutch style. We spoke to Mr. Brinkman himself to talk about what we can all expect from this project.
Julian Bah is an extremely talented skater. He's been a controversial figure in our industry over the past few years, but regardless of his personal life or persona, his skating speaks for itself. Julian is now moving on to the next chapter in his blading life and he is now a supporter of the Adapt Brand skates. Take a look at a fresh new edit of Julian on the soon to be released Adapt Brand Vegan blade, available online in the coming weeks.
"Please explain why you should win the Sven Boekhorst RB signature skates!" That is what you had to do to participate in this raffle. After reading all the hundred comments, the Be-Mag team has chosen a winner.
