Jon Julio: The Filth-Files - Article by Erick Garcia

Jon Julio is an icon in skating and is a force to be reckoned with. He has proven year in and year out that a love for skating will take you to places in your life you’ve never been before.

Gratitude towards the man is the least any skater can do, but he’s not looking for recognition, he’s looking to keep skating strong and influential until the day he dies. […]

Brian beats tumor

Lord Brian, pillar of the NYC scene had a rough time: his child is fighting against brain cancer.

Just wanted to update many on you on the situation with my son Lil Brian. To sum it up, his cancerous brain tumor was successfully removed and he is now an outpatient on the road to recovery.

It’s going to be a long road with bumps here and there but he is healing up and doing amazingly well for everything that he has gone through. If any of you have some free time feel free to check out the blog that I put together for him. It’s my way of dealing with this hellish situation.Lord Brian.

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.

Thanks Joe Binford.Thread on Facebook: 01, 02, 03.

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. […]
