YOU Convention 2010 report: Showtime with Sven Boekhorst, Avella Anthony, Dominik Wagner and more

When it comes to organizing some of blading's major events such as the 'European Half Pipe Championships, the Grindhouse Spine Masters, Winterclash, BCSD, or the Real Street comps there is a lot that goes on behind the scene to attribute to the comps success. There are always devoted people behind each event who work their asses off in order to keep the sport alive and bring in support year after year. These unnoticed heroes do it without any personal gain. Sometimes they even invest their own money simply for the audience, the industry, and the love of the sport.... Read More...

Three lines with Nils Jansons

I will be just repeating myself by writing that this youngster has mad skills, raw talent and an awesome brother who is a professional video editor which as we all know is crucial to get some good recognition. Yet even the best conditions for developing a rollerblading 'career' are nothing without your own will and love for the sport. Nils has both, there is no doubt about it. While I have to remind some of our team riders to send some clips or photos from time to time, Nils is bombing my e-mail box constantly with new stuff by himself. I'm sure he would be ripping with the same level even if he wouldn't have any sponsors or outside support. During tours Nils is always skating no matter what – bad spots, good spots, skate alone or with a large group of people – no problem with that. As he has just matured, a true rollerblader soul is fully awaken – skate hard and party even harder! I'm sure he is the right man in the right place - Nils Jansons is 18. Nils Jansons is in constant progress. Nils Jansons is the future... ... Read More...

Adam Zurawiecki interview

If you think of Rollerblading in Poland you might think of two things at least: Hedonskate and Adam Zurawiecki. Adam is a strong pillar in the Polish skate scene. If you look up his name on youtube, you will find a dozen edits that kicks ass. After a decade of hard skating Adam is still stepping up the game - not only with his skating, but also with his never ending dedication to the sport and some interesting ideas that will make Rollerblading look good and strong. For his Be-Mag interview Adam didn't come up with the normal street skate and interview shots. That's not his nature. instead, he was looking for some extraordinary stuff. ... Read More...

Checking in with Jojo Jacobi

Six months ago the world of Rollerblading gathered in Berlin as Jojo called for the Winterclash 2010. This event was bigger, louder and more spectacular than all previous Winterclashs and Rollerblading contests. But while Jojo organized one of the biggest Rollerblading events to date, it somehow went quiet around his own person after the event. That's why Be-Mag checked in with Jojo to find out what's going on. ... Read More...

Tom Coley-Sowry: One Minute One Spot

This spot is located in Wheelers Hill, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The only time I had been there everyone was having a bad day, so we decided to make excuses to not skate it, the rail was too sketchy, down-hill run-up, little lip of wood to get caught on just near the end of the rail on the far-side, and 'graze your face' asphalt to land on. So when I heard from Mr. Dalbis that little Tom Coley-Sowry managed to pump out a 'One Minute One Spot' edit just on this rail I was so pumped! I've known Little Tom for around 3-4 years now, and when he's not chilling/relaxing/catching his breath at a spot, he's a ball of energy just shredding (sort of like Sonic the Hedgehog). He has a bright future in skating, and I hope him all the best. ... Read More...

Franky Morales: One Minute One Spot

When we started the One Minute One Spot format on be-mag, we knew Franky would like that kind of format. We had no idea that Franky would provide a hammer edit like the one here - especially in the face of the fact Franky got injured right before filming for the edit. But this is Franky, one of the most popular icons of our sport's culture. Nothing can stop him to throw down his hammers. ... Read More...

Argentina Scene report

In the past months South America Rollerblading has been getting more and more attention from the industry. Just recently the USD- and the NIMH-Team toured through the vibrant countries of Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Colombia. One South American country (that is definitely not to be sneezed at) has been neglected during those trips. Since Be-Mag is always looking for the underground and grassroots scenes around the globe, we are happy to showcase you some Argentina rolling flavor. Here, dedicated rollers are about to change their underground and grassroots status and put Argentina on the big map. Local heroe Francisco March provides us with a great insight into the Argentina Rolling scene and Argentina itself. Check it out. ... Read More...

Geneva Street Skating – 15 Years History

So here is a pretty special "news" post for me, because it basically retraces my childhood and first days of street skating. This is a video made by one the Geneva Oldschooler, Mick. He pulled out footages from 1996 and seeing this again made my eyes water. Not only skaters style was exceptional back in these days, but also the tricks they were pulling off are still awesome for today! Enjoy watching this memorable edit that will bring you back to the future or "the true days" of Rollerblading. also featuring : Stephan De Freitas... Read More...

Photographer Profile: Ryan Schude

Back in the day, Ryan has enriched several Rollerblading Magazines (e.g. Daily Bread) with his one-of-a-kind skateshots. But after Daily Bread went out of business, Ryan somehow dissappeared from the Rolling scene. What the hell has Ryan Schude been up to since that time? That was one of the reasons we had to catch up with this exceptional photographer. ... Read More...

Colombia Scene Report + Nikolas Calderon Interview

It's safe to say that what you and I take for granted isn't the reality in most of South America. We assume we can order a pair of skates online and have them shipped to our house. We assume we can see pros at a comp in our country. South America? Not so much. And yet they have one of the most vibrant scenes anywhere in the world - read on!... Read More...
