I DARE anyone in this Rollernews forum to talk shit about Abdiel’s skating! This dude REALLY killed shit on blades back in da’ day! He had it all: hammers, style, trick vocabulary (those full cab TTS! Damn!), SWAG, personality and humbleness. He putted Puerto Rico on the spot for being the first and the ONLY Hispanic professional rollerblader to have his own pro-skate (USD). He and the REAL Puerto Rico OG Crew (Juan Carlos León, Cristian (Ausubo) Rodríguez, Alejandro “El Bori” Vélez, Carlos “Picapiedra” Payán, José Cuervo, Omar Ferreira and Vito Alvarado inspired me to blade to this very day and their skating was so ahead of their time. Now I’m 30 years old and still roll thanx to these guys and Abdiel Colberg. If Rollerblading had a hall of fame I think Abdiel Colberg must be in it! Abdiel Colberg is a fuckin’ ROLLERBLADING legend!
This guy is Puerto Rico’s Rollerblading YODA if U know what I mean! That trend to grind the rail beneath the rail… Well U can see it in this old Cristian Rodríguez edit from MANY years ago…! ;) This dude taught me how to do a frontside grind back in the day on Mayagüez “El Parque de los Próceres”… (A spot that appears in the first part of Step Two)
To all you folk that look like you have a pole up your ass when you do tricks, take you tight pants and button-up shirts and burn ‘em. This is how skating is done if it is to look natural. The flow is undeniable.
rollerbladings prime! everything was so perfect and unique back then there was absolutely no need for a change or a so called “progression”. rollerbladers did their own thing no matter what the outside world was thinking. now we are hated as much as ever but we look exactly the same like all the other kids with their skateboards and bikes etc. the mainstream industry finally got everybody in line and everybody is following the same trends now. the indie hipster wave or whatever you wanna call is just like a plage like “return of the bodysnatchers ” lol
