April 25, 1992 – July 30, 2015.

Brett Urbas R.I.P.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to tell you that our beloved Brett Urbas has passed away. If it was not for this amazing young man and his family, Modern Skate Park would not exist as it is today.

He began as a naturally gifted skater that eventually became World Champion. He was loved and respected by everyone that crossed his path.

He was hit by a car while skating on Thursday, June 30, 2015 doing what he loved to do and did better than most…

Please make any donation that you wish to this site in order for us to create a lasting memorial for one of the finest young men that has graced God’s green earth.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Urbas family and friends as we deal with incredible loss of a great human being.

We need for him to live on through us by living our lives with his positive spirit.

Brett Urbas R.I.P.

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 What I Learned Growing up Rollerblading in the 2000s Article by Robbie Pitts (2015)

I started rollerblading as a kid because it was everywhere. You’d see it on Heartbreak High everyday after school. Drazic and the guys were always blading and it looked really cool to me. Or if you were in a holiday program, one of the days would be going to a skate rink. Choosing rollerskates was never an option.

When I started in 1998, inline was still pretty popular. Plus, Darwin — where I grew up — was so isolated that trends took a while to get there and even longer to take hold. Also I had a solid group of friends who I skated with. […]

The trick for this month is the zero spin. Not to be confused with a straight air, the zero spin is very similar to the straight air, but it is not weak! Event on Facebook.
