Second Be-Mag and GC Prize Raffle: Win the Ground Control Video

Be-Mag is raffling out three more copies of 'GC.1', the first ever Ground Control video. So if you missed out on this video a few months ago, now's the chance to get your dirty little hands on a copy.

What are you waiting for?! Proceed...

Competition Report: Bladesgiving 2011

Preparing for months for one of the biggest competitions in Florida, Bladesgiving has turned out to be one of the funnest and biggest rollerblading events in the Southern United States along with the Pow-wow. And we are only in our second year! Skaters gathered from all over the country for a chance to rank up the WRS points and take home some cash and the huge trophy. Tim Franken, out of San Diego, Razors rider Wake Schepman, out of PA, Pro SSM rider Joey Chase and Razors flow Sammy Chase, out of Orlando, just to name a few. Also, coming all the way from Canada was our good friend Kevin Lapierre, who hurt his ankle warming up, and had to drop out of the contest. He made that huge trip, and our sympathies are with him, and we hope he recovers very soon.

“Blood, Sweat and Tears” Preview from ‘Fester’

'Fester' is a video starring Damien Wilson, John Bolino, Casey McFarland, Lyle Shivak, Joey Chase and me, Nick Wood. For this project we did it the old fashion way, by getting a bunch of tough ass bladers together and putting in over a year of blood, sweat and tears. This is a preview of the "Blood, Sweat and Tears" part. I appreciate the newer style and trendy skating these days, but our guys – like I said – are hard core and still put their ass on the line when shooting for a video.

O-Town Throwdown Contest Report

Orlando, most of the time, marks the meeting point for all of us bladers here in the Sunshine State. Also, one of the main reasons we decided to hold the first of many strings of street competitions here in Florida. Meet up spot was Barnett Skatepark. A small park with a perfect mini and an across and down rail to warm up at. Waited there for about an hour for people to show up until we headed out to the first spot. Before we headed out I made sure everyone had directions and also got with the judges to make sure we were on the same page. Lending their knowledge about the sport and tallying points was Shima Pro Rider, Joey Chase; Razors Flow Rider, Sammy Chase; Be-Mag Drama Queen, Rob Squire; and local skate veteran, Nate Ent.

Damien Wilson – “Fester” Promo

I have been working on this video called 'Fester' for a year or so. I have been working on this with Nick Wood, Lyle Shivak, Joey Chase, Jon Jon Bolino, Casey "CORN NUT" Mc Farland, Mathieu Ledoux and many others. It is a project that I am extremely proud of. And the first in a long time at that.


Lean back and relax. Here comes an eleven minute NIMH edit featuring some of the best Rollerbladers on this planet at Woodward West: Joey Chase, Montre Livingston, Matty Schrock, Jeremy Spira and one of the NIMH-founders Brian Shima himself. Jason Reyna was the man behind the camera. Yeah expect some extraordinary shit.
