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!

Pimp Cup (London, Ontario) : Report & Photos

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

The Pimp Cup went down on Sunday the 24th in London, Ontario and although the weather was sub-par it didn’t seem to phase the skaters at all, as some of the craziest tricks, on the craziest obstacles went down that day. The three spot, one hour each format had to be thrown out the window because of the imminent on and off again rain, so the two spots that were chosen were Byron Southwood public school and Saunders high school. The Woodland Heights public school was not used, but it certainly didn’t take away from the competition at all.

The competition started around 1:45 and there were no amateurs that entered, which lead to an all expert contest. The first spot Byron Southwood Public School consisted of many bike racks lined up. The warm up session was a good indication on the crazy tricks that went down that day. Here are some pictures to give an indication how things went down.

Rene Hulgreen, the Viking

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Rene Hulgreen

My name is Rene’ Hulgreen, I was born in Glostrup Denmark on the 21 of Marts 1970, my mother Lilian Hagen Hansen was a nurse and my father Knud Erik Hulgreen was working on Carlsberg, I grew up in the beach town of Greve 20 km. South of Copenhagen.

As far as I can remember I have always had Roller skates, The first pair I can remember was strap on metal skates with plastic wheels, which I had when I was very little, when I was between 7 and 10 years old I had two pairs of skates, first some yellow skates with blue stripes and yellow rubber wheels, which was a lot better then my first pair of skates. The second pair was not much different, just blue with silver stripes and blue rubber wheels. Mostly I just went down small slopes or played catch with the other kids near my home, but I learned how to skate already back then.

I also jumped trampoline in the local club and became Danish champion for team at the age of 12, but knee problems forced me to stop or I would have ended up in a wheelchair. The doctor said I could only ride bikes or swim if I wanted to do any sport, and the town of Greve had the biggest Swimming bath in Denmark, so I ended up swimming, but only for a short time. Lying there in the water I saw all the platform divers having fun and that’s how I ended up becoming a platform diver, witch didn’t really help my knee problem. […]
