Up and Comers: Gabriel Adriani

Watching my brothers growing up is one of the best things in my life and watching the flame of passion burn inside them is even better. It's wonderful to see how happy my brother Peter is when he plays football as watching my younger brother Gabriel lacing a trick. It feels like I'm playing football or making that trick in that moment. They are a part of me. Gabriel is one of the bladers who inspired my view of the game and of course one of my favourite bladers. Today I'm really proud to introduce him here on his first interview on Be-mag.com Hope you guys will meet him soon, he has the power to juice you up easy and makes you laugh more then ever!!

At first the bladders were disappointed by the small size of this "fingerboard park". But in the end everybody had fun enjoying this indoor street session.

I thought that I should take this chance to have a good session and to take pictures for my website, so I packed up my skates and my camera and took a train to Milan on Thursday.
