Wear t-shirt with graphics without looking like a little kid but bigger size is not always easy.
Although is a shame that this video is without soundtrack this give us the opportunity to enjoy a live of Bob Dylan of the song that Carl Sturgess put under Jeff Stockwell’ s shred.
This night my girlfriend had a friend request on facebook by her 70 years old grandmother.
The best bladers out there are spinning bottle of juice while filming for what is probably turning in the best video of 2011.
The world is evolving fast, but GUIDO, Guido is always the same.
Travel is part of the American culture since day one.
Is freedom, is independence and is adventure, that’s why they can drive at 16.
American photography mostly start with landscapes and travel, from Ansel Adams and Walker Evans, going through THE AMERICANS of Robert Frank (CH) wich have an intro by Kerouac who writed “on the road” to the most contemporary Alec Soth.
Rollerblading is American and every blader dreams an epic tour, is part of our culture, since day one:
This night the Spain football team becomed World Champion in South Africa and the same team is the European Champion yet.
It’s cool, I’m happy.
Skate wise in the last few years Barcelona becomed the place to be in Europe and in the whole world too, so let’s celebrate Spain becoming world wide with Marc Moreno Segura rocking a skater owned skates brand.
Pietro Firrincieli wants to save rollerblading.
If you can dream it
You can do it.
What the fuck is happening this june in Genova ?
Are the guys still alive ? For what reason New Moon was best movie at this year Mtv Movie Awards ? Why are the only two skateparks in town still closed ? Is the Blader blog barely dead ?
Sharing links with Pietro Firrincieli is something weird.
Tonight we spoke about learning mac twists and doing hand plants on pool stairs…
we watched the first and the last clips of mindgame videos…
and even Casa de Leeper…
But we both agreed to post just a name:
I’m very fond of pools.
I’ve been skating them back in the days when the coolest thing was doing misty flips and crap. From the very first one in Siziano to the very deep one in Bologna, from the pool mecca of Madrid to the indoor woody nightmare of Lausanne, searching and skating pools was and still is one of the mainly task of my blading journey.
Even not living in California did not stop me for searching for backyards ones in my hometown. Such a quest allowed me to spend delightful moments with the best dudes ever in the weirdest scenario I ever thought of.
I remember one winter, it was snowing, everything stopped in Genova and my friends and I found this huge swimming pool where I used to take swimming lessons when I was five. It was breathtaking. We were skating an indoor pool when everybody was crazy about snow outside..
Such a passion also gave me the opportunity to design the very first public pool in my city and even skating it.
This is the reason why I deeply admire and respect the work some guys have done recently in Brescia.
Building dreams made of concrete or skating them made of wood is something hard to explain, and certainly is something very hard to conceive, but it’s part of the magic behind skateboarding and even rollerblading.
As a matter of fact I still don’t know if it’s allowed blading the Knodel bowl, but they have built their own dream and they deserve choosing who have to skate it.
Ten thumbs up for the Knodel dudes !!
OH OH OOH OH HOO OH OH OHH OHH
If you don’t know who Jake Phelps is… probabily you’re a rollerblader or a soccer player.
So if you’re a rollerblader maybe you don’t enjoy reading blogs like this.
But the truth is that Valo is always in the right place at the right time to put every week something fresh on their blog, including some tricks in front of one of the most discussed editors of our time, Jake Phelps.
Well, if don’t even care about who Phelps is or for who he works, don’t worry. He certainly does not give a fuck about rollerbladers.
By the way, he plays guitars in a band too,guess who’s the bassist and you’ll win a “boero”.
Eyes on the prize.
Ok, speaking of nominations in blading maybe it’s not so glittering and sparkling as in the movie industry, where Jim Carrey presents himself as a kicking ass hippy while receiving his trophy for the Truman Show at the Mtv Movie Awards.

Quando si parla di bowl appena realizzate di solito la prima cosa di cui mi preoccupo è l’indirizzo.
Se poi scopro che sono i ragazzi di Elbo a realizzarla, prima salgo sul furgone e poi chiedo informazioni sul come raggiungerla.
Ma per Pisa è differente. Mi è sembrato rispettoso seguire l’invito di chi si è sbattuto per la sua realizzazione.
Poi mi ricordo di una foto: pool coping e protec con paraorecchie.
