I figured age before beauty on this one guys haha so I am going to go first in the order of sections I will be releasing. I am Hawke Trackler, 27 years old from Columbus Ohio.
I have been filming and street skating for over a decade now. I have been fortune enough to be able to experience alot of great things from blading and its lead me to some really fun and interesting times with all sorts of different people.
I always admired the crazier individuals that rollerbladed when growing up. Mostly because I have always liked a stunt or big trick to get done and as time went by I actually was able to meet most of these awesome people along the way who I once and still look up to at certain times.
I traveled the US as much as I was able too wether it be for road trips, tours, filming contests, or just trying to get out of the house to experience something new and over time have been able to become homies with some of the top ams & pros from around the world.
I have usually focused on the filming aspect of skating so I have personally never been too amazing but have always tried pushing myself to see what I can do. It’s actually a really fun sport even tho there are some gnarly consequences when you don’t land haha but overall has a pretty chill open minded community and always welcoming new bladers and even old bladers because its all about what makes ya happy.
The Airrr Man is on a Mission to drop as many edits this year as he can… This is his third edit of 2014 (see below). Currently nursing a sprained ankle, he will be back in the streets soon working on another… #Airrr.

Kids like Andrew Broom are rare these days. No crutch foot, skates fakie both ways, spins both ways (in and out of tricks), kills both park & street, no arm swing.
Andrew is both technical & drops hammers, and he’s all around just a great kid. If you’ve been living under a rock and you “have never seen an edit” of his, time to wake up. I could sit here and explain to you a million different ways why Andrew is an absolute badass, or you can just watch this section. – AM.
The UseleSS Tour is steady ripping through the nation. One of it’s most recent stops was in Long Beach, California.
Just in time for the Long Beach Festival and qualifying rounds, for this year’s Blading Cup. With bright sunshine, cool blue skies and a supporting audience, this contest was nothing short of a success.

Last weekend Alex Burston hosted the MCR Street Jam at Manchester‘s Castlefield Arena. With some of the years worst storms hitting the UK the two nights before the jam was destined to be affected by the wet. That said, a good turn out of bladers from around the country ensured that the jam wouldn’t be a wash out. – Thebooted.com.
