Okay, Rob, let’s get this started. What have you been up to these last few months?
Working mad overtime. The air conditioning business in South Texas is almost more than any of the local companies can handle.
Money is good, so I can’t really complain. I’ve been trying to blade when I can throughout the week. Bought my ticket for SDSF Open. Juiced on seeing people I haven’t seen in years.
Being 28 and paying rent takes somewhat of a toll, but I blade hard for the love. Just hope to inspire the younger cats to get in as deep as myself. [..]

We all travelled down the Gold Coast to hit Narang and Varsity lakes skatepark. I also linked up with a Photography Strobist group who all work and learn with off camera flash.
So 40 rollerbladers, 10 photographers, a shitload of flashes and an amazing bowl at Varsity Lakes all combined to make one awesome skatemeet. [...]

I went on a gut feeling that this year the Montreal Classic would fucking rock. The last two years were epic and I wouldn’t expect any less in 2010. The Classic brings good vibes, good times, and amazing people, all mashed up into one venue.
To me, the contest has always been the type of event where once-acquaintances become long-term, close friends.
After things came together with a last minute decision, we made the road trip from NYC to Montreal, Canada, safe and sound. We checked into a sweet hotel in the heart of the city and got some rest. At sundown, we then cruised over to Southparc Skate Park to be greeted with a free session and BBQ hosted by Danny Laroche, and Guillaume Roy of Lylac Skate Shop. Fast-forward to the free session.
I immediately noticed raw talent, new faces, and even some old friends as well. It seemed as though the competition hype was focused into a chill vibe. Everyone was skating on such a tight level, and not necessarily to compete with each other. It felt like a session with close friends.
This kicked the trip off with some positive energy and set a mood for the entire weekend. Here’s what the contest itself looked like, through the lens of Sam DeAngelis.

Everyone knows that rainy days suck, but a few days in a row of constant rain is the worst possible situation, especially in the middle of May, which even in Poland is expected to be sunny. So the city was sinking (literally, we’ve got some serious flood problems right now in Poland), and all I could do was think about going out and taking some good pics of my friends skating.
That’s about when Adam Zurawiecki, aka Maly, called me to team up with him, Gawron and Igor to go searching for some indoor spots. The city of Czestochowa has plenty of abandoned locations that might be interesting and useful for bladers, but we decided to explore one particular location: the post-industrial grounds of the old Welnopol manufacture facility.
