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".

"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.

March Madness 2011 Photography by Gee Lee

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.

Fitted – A NYC Video by Joseph Perez

»All year long in New York City, Rollerblading is filmed by cinematographers of all ages, simply to expose our scene and its unique following. In 2010, I took it upon myself to do the same and help the movement in the Tri-State area. Just like the rest of the other filmers in NY/NJ, I have my own responsibilities such as taking care of my family and working a full-time job in another state. When I first got involved in rollerblading, back in 2000-2004, I was the one being filmed by friends. Killing myself in order to get the clips.«

Last Man Standing 2010: Amateur competition

Be-Mag sent out one of his New York ambassadors, Joseph Perez, to the first round of this year's Last Man Standing competition. The New York skate scene has been blowing up strongly over the last couple years. Due to the recent New York edits floating through the Rollerblading media the rise of the scene has become even more aware. The first round of the Last Man Standing comp was just another testimony for it. Joseph covered the full event for us and reconstructed the hype that went down there. If this is the Amateur level, I wonder what can be expected next weekend from the PRO-category. Good to know we are sending out again people to cover the event for us here. But now it's time for the Amateur coverage. Enjoy it.
