Fester Pro Damien Wilson: Making of a Photo

This photo was originally intended for Be-Mag. I was shooting an interview entirely of "MAN MADE" obstacles. I built one obstacle for each of my sponsors. I filmed the process by myself so the shots aren't everything I wanted for the building portion. So this is episode #1 of "Makings of a one of a kind photo". I hope you enjoy. -Damien Wilson...

Brian Aragon touring China Live-Update #6: Back to School

As we pulled up to Tsinghua University in Beijing the college looked more like bustling city than a college. Driving through the enormous campus we came across banks, grocery stores, clothing stores, and of course mass amounts of college girls. Franky informed me that this University was the most prestigious university in all of China and that only the best students are accepted to further their education here. He made the comparison to Harvard in the United States. I was impressed to say the least but in the back of my head I was imagining the consequences of skating Harvard which might possibly lead to an arrest or heavy fines.... Read More...

Company Profile: Bulletprufe Skate Denim

How often have you ruined your favorite jeans while out skating? If you're anything like, we're sure that it has happened plenty of times.

We checked in with Will to find out what the deal is with the company and if his jeans are in fact "tough as nails, soft as butter". We also asked Bulletprufe team rider Daniel Prell if his grandma approves of his new jeans. ... Read More...

New Jersey Blading: Woodbridge Session Edit

New Jersey Blading was the result of multiple events that happened in the last 2 years of my life. To make a long story short, I was motivated to start blading again after not touching my skates in 8 years and through the process I felt it was necessary to unite bladers from all over New Jersey. Basically, after experiencing a large skate session in Jersey City, New Jersey in 2009 and seeing the LetsRollNY weekly sessions online, I truly felt New Jersey needed something like this on a regular basis. ...

Reconstruction of Rolling Rock Skatepark in Switzerland

The Rolling Rock skate shop & park was founded in 1996 by Simon Eichenberger and Thomas Georg. Local heroes like Beni Huber started skating here and the Rolling Rock Team consisted of influential Swiss skaters like Sandro Brun, Jona Messerli, Cossimo Tassone und Beat Schillmeier. Theres just a small market for "aggressive" skating in Switzerland and that’s one of the reasons why the skatepark is built to cater to families and their weekend recreation. A round course, hockey fields, a trampoline and lots of small stuff to have fun on with the family. Of course there was the big vert ramp and the large curved quarter which fills one entire side of the park. ... Read More...

Rob Pruett Interview with exclusive Skatepark Edit

Rob Pruett what can I say, I’ve known this guy/machine for some time now and while I’ve seen rollerblading change over ten years and the tricks progress from a soul on a kink rail to someone throwing down a tech 540° to whatever. It's amazing, don’t get me wrong. It’s fantastic to see the dedication and commitment that guys have to do tricks like this, but it’s also amazing to see one of the very few people left that just goes big, one of the guys who just gets up after taking the skin to the bone after bailing on a 25 foot gap and then just getting up and trying again. Kids take note, there is another side to rollerblading, it’s in the form of RP. ... Read More...

‘Seven Rats’ Premiere in Melbourne, Australia

It’s Friday the 22nd of April, time for the world premiere of Australian DVD ‘Seven Rats’. It was in a dark and filthy cobblestone alleyway right in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD that the red carpet was rolled out for all who attended. The appropriately named ‘Rancho Notorious’ was the venue for the evening. Inside on the first level was an old warehouse converted into a gallery showcasing talented Melbourne artists, but this didn’t take importance away from the bar which was serving the finest local and imported beers, wine, and an enormous cheese platter (real rat food). Like most who attended, Josh Clarke strolled in with his eyes set on the bar. The event and venue was one that Melbourne rollerbladers had not experienced before for a premiere, and everyone knew this meant something special. ... Read More...

Donate & Skate Competition Report

The first ever Donate and Skate charitable rollerblading event took place in Cedar Park, Texas on April 16th 2011. The goal of the contest was to provide rollerblades to those interested in the sport, but who might not have the funds readily available to buy brand new skates. Instead of a contest entry fee, competitors donated used skates, wheels or frames. Then, during the contest, the nice staff of Rec N Roll Skateshop helped match up the pieces and assembled skates for those in need. It was great seeing so many kids excited about picking out their own parts and trying on their new skates. A few brave kids even tried rolling the skatepark for their first time – it was a beautiful sight! ... Read More...

Loco Tour Noiya Jam update 2.1

Some more photos and video. Beautiful day at the Noiya Jam on Saturday. Lots of people chilling out side PLUS BBQ. Nick Lomax came 1st, Elliot Stevens 2nd Alex Burston 3rd. Burston also had the craziest collision with James Keyte (ending the whole contest in the process!) Hope your butts feel better guys! Lomax laced back to back tricks including his usual technical grind plus corkscrew 900 from quarter to flatbank. Elliot flowed the park and laced acid soul 720 and hurricane disaster Fish. Apparently there were 100 more people at the Jam than last year. Nice one Tim Darker!... Read More...

Checking In with Robbie Pitts

If you asked me 4 months ago if Robbie Pitts would have a section in ‘Seven Rats’, I would have been hesitant in saying yes. We had submitted all of the footage I filmed of him in the past year for ‘Valo 4 Life’, and I didn’t have a single clip of him left for ‘Seven Rats’. When he returned from America, I filmed Robbie almost everyday for 3 months, and his persistence, and belief in the project carried him through to the end, delivering an amazing video section. He truly has put a lot of effort into getting his section done, from filming arbitrarily after work/university, to sitting in on the long editing process. His section was the first that I finished editing, wrapping it up within 5 hours of getting his final trick on camera. Working with Robbie was a great experience; his outlook on rollerblading is something that will always stay with me. Thanks for all the great memories Robbie! ... Read More...
