Grant Hazelton Arizona Edit by Mike Torres

He's not my brother. He is also not my twin. He is the better looking, more responsible, more technical, more stylish, version of myself. He is my upgrade. Perhaps he was sent here from the future to kill the young John Connor, and it is my job to save him regardless of the fact that I am a technically inferior model... I digress. Grant is one of my best friends, and probably my favorite person to skate with. And boy can he pull off a mustache. -Mike Torres

Derek Henderson Talking About Friends, Idols, Heart Issues and Man-Blading

Growing up in the armpit of California can be pretty difficult for a blader, flat land, flat architecture, flat blade spots. Having and thriving on these difficulties has definitely shaped Derek to the blader he is. A hard finesse/precise/inventive/fuck-you style should sum up his blading, I might be missing some other distinct points but it's ok, you can come up with whatever you want, he won't give a shit. In this self conscious, trend following world, I feel that blading needs a kid like Derek. Call it man-blading, call it thrash-blading, call it whatever you want, Derek definitely has what people need. Give this a read and discover another side to a dude I'm honored to be friends with: Derek Henderson.

Top 5: Brian Freeman

Having sponsors like Valo, Vibralux and Street Artist, and being featured in the last two Adam Johnson flicks already shows that B Free is much...

Company Profile: Roc City Skates

Blading needs more shops. When's the last time you tried on a pair of skates at an actual skate shop? Yes, not many have the opportunity to pick up their goods like that. But it isn't only a matter of over-the-counter experience that may (or may not) include professional advice on what to get; local shops literally "make" scenes. This is only one of the topics that are discussed in this Company Profile with Roc City Skates out of Rochester, NY. Others being dedication and love for the sport, entrepreneurship, permits and a certain unnamed jerk. Read on.

Contest Report: 11th Annual Kentucky Battle

It all started back on April 20, 2000. In a blur, I had way too much fun, but I watched the edit Tri made. I think he won, but it was originally between Louisville and Lexington. I think we all realized that wouldn't work. So, now fast-forward many sessions, parties, and prizes later. Here we are in our 11th year and can now say we are a legit contest. People from all over have been to Lexington or Louisville simply for some bad-ass street skating in some of the spots that we here call home. I can't tell you how to throw a skate contest, because I honestly change the format every year. I test one way and regardless of success or failure, we determine a winner, and everyone either parties or goes home. That is how it has always been, until this year...

Rolling Artist: Vinny Minton

In the second installment of "Rolling Artist" we catch up with one of the most progressive videographers in the biz, Vinny Minton.

In Depth: Jeff Stockwell

We decided to kick off this new picture-based format with Jeff Stockwell who has been in the game for more than a decade and has been one of the most influential rollers ever!

Jeph Howard | Welcome to the Am Team

Razors is proud to welcome Jeph Howard to the AM Team. We’ve been associated with Jeph for close to 5 years now, and if you ask me, it’s about damn time we made this decision. One of the most dedicated “grown” bladers I know, skating everyday, no matter the weather or work schedule. Together with his fellow MN skaters, they’ve organized 2 street skating days a week. Rearranging their work schedules, now every Tuesday and Sunday are designated for street skating, again, regardless of weather conditions. Never knowing where or when, they keep a generator, videographer and photographer on deck....

The Apple Juice – An interview with Jason Greendyk

The Apple Juice is the mushroomed story of my personal involvement in rollerblading over the course of the past decade, complete with full color photographs; vignettes of the artwork that is rollerblading. It incorporates my adventures in New Jersey and New York City as a youth to my subsequent and various cross-country trips to many of America's great cities and hub locations for the rollerblading industry and culture, including a year spent in San Francisco working with Sean Cullen and Kevin Yee on the film, The Apple Rest in Peace San Francisco, which was of great inspiration.

Psyko’s way to the Last Man Standing (part 2)

I left San Diego for Seattle one week ago and It seems like a month. Now I'm here in New York city. I would first like to give a shout out to Seattle. The 10th SBS (Street Battle Seattle) was as wild as I hoped. Big ups to Jeremy Townsend for a great contest and My Remz flow brothers Sean Cowen, Nacho, Kawika, and Josia Blee for hitting it hard to help me make an edit that will be up this week, so look for that. But now I'm in the belly of the beast.

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.
