Up and Comers: Gabriel Adriani

Watching my brothers growing up is one of the best things in my life and watching the flame of passion burn inside them is even better. It's wonderful to see how happy my brother Peter is when he plays football as watching my younger brother Gabriel lacing a trick. It feels like I'm playing football or making that trick in that moment. They are a part of me. Gabriel is one of the bladers who inspired my view of the game and of course one of my favourite bladers. Today I'm really proud to introduce him here on his first interview on Be-mag.com Hope you guys will meet him soon, he has the power to juice you up easy and makes you laugh more then ever!!

Everybody likes a good skating picture, but the person taking it usually remains unknown. With our 'Photographer Profiles' we decided to change that and shed some light on the people behind the camera. Pietro Firrincieli is a dedicated rollerblader from Italy who's been documenting his scene for years. Read on about his love for black and white, Blade Diary, getting hit by a truck and check out some of his favourite pictures along the way!

Reflections On Louie Zamora By Your Childhood Heroes

In the latest print issue of Be-mag, we were lucky enough to feature longtime skater and prankster Louie Zamora. Originally we wanted to get some insight into the real man behind the skater, so we figured why not speak to those who know him best.

Up and Comers: Jo Zenk

The usual introductions start with the moment when you first met the guy to be interviewed. In this specific case I have to say, that I am not quite sure where I met Johannes the first time, but I am sure about the fact that as soon as I got to know him a little I hated him instantly. Never would I ever hang out with that guy. Life can teach you tough lessons and the one that I was taught when it comes to Johannes Zenk is, that you should never judge someone on first sight.

Competition Report: WRS Sicily Street Competition

On Saturday June 2nd the Italian Blader Connection and the World Rolling Series held the Sicily Street Competition in Paterno, which is a small village near Catania, Italy. I arrived in Catania by taking a bus, then a ship, and then another bus from Rome. When I arrived there that morning, I ran into a little problem; there was no way to get to Paterno! No buses or trains went there on the weekend so I asked a taxi driver how much it would cost to get there. He told me 50€ but since the normal bus and train fares were 2,70€ I decided I would try to find another way.

Nicola Fiorenza: One Minute One Spot

The first thing you have to know about Nicola is that in Italy he is known as "Nico er fico" which means "Nico the cool". This Johnny Bravo look-alike street machine is killing it since day one. The first time I talked to him was a street contest in Milan ten years ago that ended with Nico doing a 360 soul on an elbow high hand rail that resulted in him winning the contest and somebody else quitting blading. Ten years later Nico just got married and is a proud father of the two-year-old cute girl Giorgia. But if you think this makes him slow down his blading, I also need to let you know that he also just became Italian Champion of 2011. It is a great pleasure for me to introduce my friend Nicola Fiorenza and his "fuck-off attitude". Enjoy the edit!
