I think Eisler was considered “international” for a long time, but since a few years back that isn’t as much of a disadvantage as before. Look at these guys: two Euros, an Asian and a Canadian! All rollerbladers I love watching and it was especially nice to see Worapoj again. What I think Eisler learnt in Australia was to show that rollerblading is about passion and having fun – and if you look at the Vine Street crew that’s exactly what they brought to the sport in a way that was reminiscent of the 90’s in a good way but new to the sport in 2010.
Wellsmore edits aren’t necessarily better than a lot of other big names but he is, just like Eisler, able to convey a more appealing image of the sport which is less about attitude and more about the contents. That’s why I rather watch Wojda than X, rather watch Wellsmore than X… and so forth. I came to think about this after having watched the USD US team. I remember the France edit Montre put out a few years ago, IMO it was the best Montre edit ever. So full of passion! He hasn’t lost his passion of course, but it’s all about making an edit that can convey that and not trying to be an MTV music video. I couldn’t care less if a rollerblader thinks he’s all that with the hardest beat and some gangstarap, but shallow attitude simply too often overshadows the joy and beauty of rollerblading.
That line at the end was like slope style in skiing. That looked like a dream. Remember when MTV sports included rollerblading in their extreme sports bull hit a while back? They had it set up like a slope style street course, and I always wondered why that hasn’t become more popular.
This shit was HOT man! I literally cannot believe how epic this video is, I literally ran out of the shower quick to watch this Richie is on fire now man!!!
