What started out as an option for a cheap and efficient form of transportation for the inmates of the infamous Powerhouse in Barcelona, has quickly evolved into a stand-alone branch of Aggressive Skating. Now, a year later you may have noticed these unorthodox looking frames and wheels on display at just about all major shops and retailers. Unorthodox maybe, but only to the eyes of the unengaged. Check out this article and get the low down on the latest trend in blading, or inevitably be passed over by your mates that keep up with the times. And, you better believe they'll be moving fast.
Waking up periodically through the first night, Thursday morning couldn't come soon enough! My day started when Asian team rider, Franky Zhang, picked me up around 11am and took me to one of his favorite places to eat in Beijing which strangely enough was Indian food. After a nice lunch we headed to the press conference that was being held for the CX games which included all the organizers of the event as well as two pro BMXers.
One week after this years Winterclash tooks place in Eindhoven, Be-Mag presents you our second edit of the event. Karsten Boysen has worked really hard on this and we think it came out great!
With this One Minute One Spot edit we want to take the chance to introduce you to the person in charge of Shop Task (Skateshop in Canada): Leon Basin. The Israel native is not only good at pushing Rollerblading in Canada through his Rollerblade-Shop. He is more than that. Leon has been rollerblading more than half of his life and has been an inspiration in terms of Rollerblading for a lot of people that skate with him. Even though Leon is a pretty busy man since he also recently opened a Shop-Task store front in Downtown Vancouver he still found some time to film some extraordinary stuff for be-mag. Peep it!
