‘The Breakfast Club’ touring through Belgium and France

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.

Ben Harmanus: Reflecting on What Is

Ben is a veteran in our sport, has pulled some of the burliest stunts, been around the block more times than even he can remember, and now in his wiser days he is putting enlightenment before excitement when taking a look at all that skating and life around him has become. With the relaunch of Chimera and a fresh start in Berlin he has stepped into a life of inspiration.

Checking in with Edwin Wieringh

If you are into European Rollerblading, you might have come across the Amsterdam local Edwin Wieringh. Dutch, cleanest style ever, textbook truespin topsouls, always in a good mode and full of power – those are just some characteristics for a guy who loves Rollerblading more than anything else in his life and that often shreds the Amsterdam streets just by himself. There are some Rollerbladers in our industry that are known worldwide for their extraordinary talent although they have never won an international contest title. Edwin Wieringh has been one of those people – at least until the weekend of June 11th 2011 when he took the Chaz Sands Invite 2011 Amateur comp. When we got the results from our local media team there was a big "Halleluja!" going on in the office. It was just a matter of time that Edwin would win an international recognized contest. We thought that's reason enough to catch up with the Dutch super dude. Curtains up for Edwin "from hell" Wieringh.

Dutch Rollerblading Champion crowned in ‘s-Hertogenbosch

Last Saturday the third and final round of the Dutch Championship series took place. The best Dutch riders were present to compete for the final points. The win in the junior's division took Tasheed Zaalman from Rotterdam and the senior title was taken by Dick Heerkens from Amsterdam. Although both were in the top of the ranking before the final round already, it was still a round full of excitement.

Exclusive: Giorgio Oehlers Interview by Dominic Swagemakers

I know Giorgio for quite a long time now. In all those times we experienced some perfect skate sessions, road trips, vacations and parties. He is a good filmer and editor and also produces his own music. Everything in the Rollerdam online rollerblading videos was done by the man himself! Lately he has been doing quite well with his music. It's really nice to see all the time and effort he put in now starts to pay off. Giorgio skates the same as the relaxed vibes from his beats – relaxed and with much ease. It's always nice to see him rollerblade. Take some time to read the interview and see that, after more than 10 years in the game, Giorgio still loves rollerblading and everything that comes with it! 

Winterclash News: X-mini Last Man Standing Competition on Friday 11th

Crash test at the Winterclash? Five people standing around a bowl, drinking a cup of beer, who finishes first, drops in first… Five people inside a bowl at the same time and the winner is the “Last Man Standing”. This game got invented by the guys behind the IMYTA+ and the rest of the Amsterdam locals in 2006 and we are proud continuing with it in 2011. The “X-mini Last Man Standing” will definitely be one of the highlights at this year’s Winterclash and for sure an unforgettable side event for everybody.

Rollerblade AM Tour through the Netherlands

»We woke up early and drove to Rotterdam Skateland. I spoke with the owners of the park and they were willing to let us skate the park before it opened. Which was cool because we had the whole park on our own for 7 skaters. Dick Heerkens and Adil Farhouni also joined the session.«
