Here is a first raw edit from the NYC Street Invite 2011. The clips shown in this edit are from the initial heats in the beginning. More photos and clips are about to follow.
The heats have been announced for the contest. Everyone who has a rank and name is in New York this weekend. Including some wildcards that should be able to mix things up!
The time has come and the final competitor list for the 2011 NYC Street Invitational is finished. We have taken our time choosing the absolute best street skaters from all over the world to bring to New York City and we think we have a pretty amazing competitor list put together. Now onto those Wild Card spots that we have promised: Due to the nature of the competition we will not have time for a qualifications or Amateur competition. Our main priority is to give those invited to the event every opportunity to shred what we will be putting in front of them. We will be accepting suggestions for the 5 remaining Wild Card spots for the NYC Street Invitational. The top 5 submitted bladers will be invited to the competition. One submission per person so choose wisely.
Friday February 11th, 2011 had arrived and the majority of the Tri-State area's rolling family was in attendance for the highly anticipated premiere of the film "Fitted". The Millennium Theatre which seats 100 people comfortably was now packed and ready for showtime. "Fitted", which is the 2nd film from Joseph Perez and ImagyneThat.com, was compiled with some of the best talent that New York and New Jersey has to offer.
This year I attended the March madness 2011 at Shield Skatepark in Flemington, NJ where the only thing that came to mind was "Go big or go home". With every pressure of getting to the top and keeping your spot for the ultimate WRS this year, there was no lack of disappointments. Everyone from beginners to advance showed massive innovations that built this sports to where we are today.
Over the past couple of years, the Tri-State Area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) has lost too many indoor skate parks to count. From Hackettstown in New Jersey to the infamous Academy Skate Park in Connecticut; we have lost too many indoor parks due to lack of funding and support. We have endorsed endless hours of blading and hard earned cash to spend late sunday nights lacing tricks. Kids grow up in these parks and inevitably they have to watch the place they were raised in get torn down to the ground.
Jamie has been at the Bitter Cold Showdown to promote one of Be-Mag’s latest releses, the Sideshow Rodeo DVD. Here...
It's Friday night and before the Qualification Round of the 11th Annual Bitter Cold Showdown the Pro's came top shred the course before the big event Saturday afternoon. As the park began to fill with both spectators and amateur bladers, the Pros put on a show and gave the dedicated BCSD audience a sneak peak of what is to come!
Sideshow Rodeo is now shipping worldwide to stores. Jamie from Footage Tape gives us an insight on the project. Read about the new DVD release produced by Footage Tape and see the first trailer, along with a behind the scenes on the Fire edit and David Sizemore.
Saturday, November 27th, 2010 was the night of the highly anticipated fourth installment to the We Are Valo series titled Valo4Life, directed by Ivan Narez. This would take place in the Helen Mills Theater which is located on w26th st in Manhattan. NYC was ready for what the internet buzz calls One of the greatest skate movies to date. The event which has been generated a lot of talk via facebook, was organised by Victor Callender who organizes such events as Last Man Standing, Battle My Crew and Lets Roll NY sessions. As I walked into the theatre, the first object I notice is the Valo4life billboard which is positioned at the foot of the steps.

This past weekend we reported live from the Montreal Classic 2010. Now three days later our Montreal representatives have prepared a full coverage of the action that happened during this epic weekend. You might have seen already Haffey going wild in the REMZ edit. But here we've got some more exclusive action shots and edits. So check this out here and take the next higher dosage.
There were less Pro Skaters than last year but the level was insane and the crowd didn't believe what they saw!!! The final (I mean the warrior heat): 5 guys in the skate park for 15-20 minutes + 5 minutes more, asked by the crowd. Even if Franco was close to break his arm and his back on a fall, he skated like a beast, throwing his body all over the park, doing its toe grind and strong lines. The two frenchies - as professional as usual - killed the park with their own personal style: Adrien doing switch ups and strong grinds around, Roman with so much ease, spinning hard and high. Jerry Butler showed that he deserved to be a real pro, this guy originally from Cleveland but living in Montreal for 4 years now showed everyone that he was at home. Finally, what can I say about Haffey except that he did few tricks to warm up and that he went eat to come back later to land the strongest trick ever laced in this park. Keep an eye on be-mag and wait for the video edit! - Guillaume
Sam DeAngelis's photography has been popping up a lot lately. If you read online rolling media than you've seen his work shooting the NY and NJ scene. Want to know more about him? So did we, so we checked in, and Sam delivered this nice little interview along with some exclusive shots!
The Checkmate Mixtape 3 by the Brown Brothers (B Unique) has amazed the Rollerblading crowd with some really fancy skating! By uniting the skating talents of some of the most respected Rollerbladers in our sport they definitely went outside the envelope with this release.
