Amsterdam Week: IMYTA+ Flashback

I had seen touristbladers before of course. Most of the time you would run into touristbladers at the local skatespots, and every once in a while you could spot a small flock of touristbladers in the wild. But nothing could have prepared me for the amount of touristbladers I witnessed the days leading up to one of the most anticipated real street events ever. Everywhere I went I encountered Mindgame hoodies, $enate backpacks, Medium sweaters and more of the like. Us Damsko Kids had been waiting for this weekend ever since it had become clear that the two grandfathers of real street contests would be working together on what was to become one of the most epic rollerblading weekends ever witnessed by man. This day had finally arrived. With it an unbelievable number of rollerbladers of all ages and nationality. Words fail to describe the awesomeness experienced by yours truly. Therefore I will not even attempt to bore you with more of my insane ramblings, but will let the pictures speak for themselves.

RollKings Tour Update #1: Arriving in Scotland and The Unit 23 Open

After a relatively easy van and rider pickup including Adrian Wallace, Jake Ricketts. Somehow we got to Dumbarton and the Unit 23 skatepark on time,in one piece and in dry weather. After a quick stop to pick up Chaz Sands who will now be joining us on the tour we hit a very packed Unit 23 to break in the new down box addition to the famous flatbank. It turns out the new box is indeed amazing and revitalises a park obstacle that has withstood 8 years of insane tricks from the best riders in the world sliding down the rails and boxes.
