Competition Report: A.L.N.I.S 2013

A.L.N.I.S is over and it was AMAZING! What is A.L.N.I.S? It’s the most awesome day in the year for bladers in Latvia. Everyone meets and makes the most amazing vibe around. If you come to A.L.N.I.S you can see what the Latvian rollerblading scene looks like. This is the once a year event where everyone just shows up. You might see old bladers you haven’t seen in years and you will definitely see new faces you have never seen before. This was 6th year for annual A.L.N.I.S and every year it just gets better and better.... Read More...

Up and Comers: Toms Krasovskis

One day I was talking to my friend Kevin in BCN when I was there chilling at the Powerhouse (the biggest thanks Richie E. for letting me stay haha) and when we were talking he asked me if I would like to film an ''Up and Comers'' section for Be-Mag. I didn’t believe it in the beginning, but when I wrapped my head around the concept I was trying to blade as much as I could to get the best clips for the video! As always there were high and lows, tricks, bails and injuries so in the end I didn’t get as many clips as I wanted. I didn’t get to do the last planned hammer for the edit because of the contusion I caught along the way. My head is still woozy so I'm sorry if the edit isn't good enough for you, but know this – it would have been better if my head was made of metal and I don’t care what you think!... Read More...

One Minute One Spot: Nils Jansons

If you've heard of Nils Jansons then you know this guy is a shredder! Simply speaking. Big tricks, lots of speed and of course, plenty of hammers. But I want to tell you a bit about Nils that you may not know. Nils is "on it". And by saying that, I mean he has found his passions and will stop at nothing to achieve or take whatever he wants from this life. He may be young, numerically speaking, but he has the patient and calm demeanor of a buddist monk. Nils is super humble and down to earth. Still what some might call a bit "out there". He is the kind of homie that you can really sit down and kick it with and ponder about life, girls, politics, blading or whatever the topic may be.... Read More...

One more time Karramba hosted an awesome weekend at the end of May for the inline, skate, mtb and bmx riders in the summer town Palanga, Lithuania.

Hedonskate Tour 2012 Update #3: The Last Days of the Tour

The last update ended with us fixing our car and leaving Kaunas for next stop Palanga, which was only a one hour drive. We arrived in the early evening for a session at the local park with local bladers. We gave away some free Hedonskate stuff again and just had a fun session there. The weather was pretty cold and dark despite it supposed to be summer, but we didn't care.... Read More...

Hedonskate Tour 2012 Update #2: Gettin’ stuck in Kaunas!

The last update ended with us arriving in Kaunas at an awesome summer house. This is where we celebrated a national holiday - John’s day! Great house with all kinds of people hanging out. Chillin’, drinking and just having fun all night long and going to sleep when sun was already up, because this was the shortest night of the year. That sure was a fun night!... Read More...
