skating in italia

On friday night we packed our stuff and headed to Bologna, where Trony and Bizze were waiting for us. After the long drive we left the bags in their house and the guys went out since it was Matteo Guidi’s birthday – yeah, i’ll let you guess his age.

After some hours of sleep, we went to Modena on satuday. There we met with the gus from Verona (Pedro, il Duca, Nicholas and Simone). Unfortunately it started raining and we chilled a bit waiting for the rain to stop. Then we went to the first Modena banks, which almost everyone killed with tree stalls, truespin tsoul and ts ao fishy.

Jeff Dalnas (new Skatepile pro): kink rail master!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

Quoting Gabe Holm : (thanks for mailing me!)

I’ve known Jeff for about 6 years now and he’s always been cocky but it’s all in good fun cause he always backs it up. Jeff loves rollerblading and is dedicated to it. He’s known for lacing big drop kinks and this past weekend he drove up 4 hours from Rhode Island to visit me in Vermont where I’m going to college and for another attempt at gnarr drop off kink in Burlington VT. B-Town is the hub of east coast snowboarding; the home of Burton many pro snowboarders and skiers come through to ride street in the city. Jeff Anderson one of snowboarding’s most progressive rail riders (R.I.P.) f/s boarded the bottom half of this kink rail that’s located on the waterfront and the picture was in Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.

As soon as I showed Dalnas the rail for the first time he wanted it. A little over a month ago on the way to the Montreal Classic with some skaters from Boston Jeff stopped to attempt it. He came very close after committing on his first attempt and knew he could do it. On his second attempt he wasn’t so lucky and flew off the rail flipping onto the stairs. His arm got caught in the between the stairs and it has been hurting him since.

Jeff was said he was loosing sleep over it and had to come back to lace. After a few run ups to get his adrenaline going he stayed on it the whole way down but slipped out at the end slamming hard and almost bashing his face on the ground. This didn’t phase him however.

Jeffery eats kink rails for breakfast. This was one of the hardest kinks to land that he’s done, he said and this time he ate it for dinner. Although this is one of his biggest hammers I don’t see him getting full anytime soon. Skating tastes too good and he loves it way too much to stop skating anytime soon. Jeff has been skating for 11 years now, he grew up skating with some of the best in Rhode Island, just made the Skatepile Pro Team, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him. Big things for Jeff Dalnas in 2007!

Check a photo set of Jeff Dalnas skating this huge kink rail.
