‘Urban Decay’ (1998) by Jan Welch

'Urban Decay' was the first major video I came out with, which was distributed by Video Action Sports. Features skating from Texas as well as footage from a long road trip I made with Lonnie Gallegos to San Diego, Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Features profiles on Robert Guerrero, Chris Fleener, Anthony Medina, Erick Garcia and Jared Magers. -Jan Welch

A different view on the San Diego Blade Scene

Recently a recent guest of our city ran an article entitled “San Diego Scene Report” that ruffled a few feathers around here. His article featured very few of the skaters, industry and importance that san diego has in rollerblading. I’ve lived here my whole life and have been a part of the SD blade scene for over 15 years. So when the boys over here asked me to do the real scene report, I thought that I could do a little better, and pay some tribute to perhaps the most important city in our sport.
