Have you ever wondered who the people are who are making the real shit happen when it comes to producing blading products? I’m not talking about your mates clothing company or the pro-skate which claims its “designed by [insert pro skater’s name]”.
There’s some hidden faces in our industry who have risked it all by putting in thousands of Dollars, even more work hours and in some cases a creative genius to bring you innovative products.
Some names spring to mind when I think of the faceless heros of product development: Mattias Knoll (Powerslide), Sebastien Laffarge (Seba), Pieter Wijnant (Adapt), Rachel Lin (K2), Kenneth Dedeu (Powerslide), more recently Xavier Raimbault (Trigger), even Tom Hyser (Rollerblade)… but none more than the ultimate blade industry mogul Andy Wegener.

Since the time Damon Franklin and I began drafting up this interview late last year things have changed for the better. He went from Xsjado to USD.
He just dropped a great edit with Erick Rodriguez showcasing his street skills and he is traveling much more to blade as much as possible thus increasing his exposure.

Lord Brian interviewed TJ Gleason of Grey Matter Hardgoods.
Grey Matter Hardgoods came out of nowhere and is now everywhere. I can’t go a day without hearing great praise about their anti rockers or seeing an advertisement promoting their product or mindset… And that is a good thing.
GMH is here and they are making an impact. After working with TJ Gleason on this interview I found a new level of respect for him and I’m glad he’s back into blading. Welcome back TJ!
