One Minute One Spot: Charles Alexandre Nantel

I remember when I first met Charles like 13 or 14 years ago. We got along right away. Since then he has always been one of my favourite dudes to skate with. Mr Nantels skating is raw, filled with style and creative. His passion for everything he does is contagious.

Kevin Lapierre: One Minute One Spot

A few years ago, a new face appeared in the Montreal skating scene. I first met Kevin about 5 years ago in Montreal. He came at the shop with his parent to buy his first pair of skates. I never seen a kid getting new skates and being as much excited as Kevin. At that time, I knew this kid had something different. A couple of months after, local skaters started to get used to see Kevin at differents sessions even if was living 60 miles away from Montreal. I didn’t took so long to realised that Kevin was gifted with a natural talent.

One Minute One Spot: Jo Zenk

During my stay in Varna / Bulgaria this august, I was able to travel around with a few friends and the guys from vertigo iztok, the local skateshop. This gave me the chance to skate this beautiful spot in Dobrich, a city not far away from varna. the runway was a crappy sidewalk and the landing was halfway overgrown by grass but in bulgaria many of the spots are like that. They call it "agrar-spots". In my eyes thats what gives that spot his nice atmosphere and I really liked to skate it. after a few tricks everybody wanted to head over to another spot so we thought about coming back another day to film some more clips which we never did. Anyways because I really liked the atmosphere of the clips I decided to use them for my One Minute One Spot. Thanks Bash for the filming, Thanks Be-Mag for the opportunity. Watch out for more comin soon. Now check it out for yourself.

Who the heck is Mike David?

Mike David has always been raw talent. His skating has always been on the next level, and his presence is always positive. The first time I met Mike was back in the TSB days in Toronto, when he tried a massive disaster soul. I thought he was just some crazy guy trying to make a name for himself, but after a while I realized that this guy throws down every time he skates. Pure hammers, and best attitude around. Everyone knows how humble he is, and no one questions his skill. Presenting Mike D everyone.

Albert Hooi: 1 Minute 1 Spot

Albert Hooi has been on USD since time began. Something about his silent assassin style makes him one of the most exclusive characters in rollerblading, and someone we are proud to have on the team. Albert’s technical skating is nothing short of mind-blowing, and watching him skate, effortlessly gliding over all obstacles almost, puts you in a state of trance.
