During its many years of existence, Be-Mag has covered many phases, featured a whole bunch of talented bladers, and showcased countless incredible tricks. We have always tried to give our readers the best of what blading has to offer, and through various medias, experienced different ways to bring you different types of content. Newsletters, the many versions of the website, one VHS, three DVD’s and our infamous messageboard, we have done it all. But if there is one thing we love more than anything, it is the feel and touch of a print publication. As our 42nd issue is currently in the final stages of preparation and should be in our printer’s hands in just a few days, we wanted to take a look back at the first issue we officially released, and share this history lesson with you. It carries a strong smell of nostalgia and a healthy dose of great blading. Dear Be-Maggers, we proudly present to you our Issue #1: enjoy your read!
