My name is Reneâ€™ 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 thatâ€™s how I ended up becoming a platform diver, witch didnâ€™t really help my knee problem. […]

I’ve traveled mostly in Japan. The only place I have been abroad is New Zealand. I would love to go to Europe and other countries but I don’t have the time right now
I have been a great fan of yours since Omocomo Issue 1.0 and I really love your work, all of your photoes are soo clean, what is your secret to shoot the â€˜perfectâ€™ photo?
I bought my camera without having any knowledge about photography, so I was just trying to get the thing working at first, and I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about taking photos. But the good thing was, I was still skating then so I was able to imagine the photo from the skaters perspective and the timing where the trick would look best.

One released a video of the making of the photo you can see above (featuring Franco Cammayo). You won’t see Franco lace the trick but the video is nice.
If you look closely enough at this photo that Wes Driver took of Franco Cammayo while in NYC shooting for Rockstar Bearings new ad in ONE issue #1, you can clearly see the crewâ€™s belts holding the rail to the posts as Franco launches through some water to a badass grabbed backslide.

Thumper Nagasako In-Line Skater.
Thumper Nagasako has made the leap from his solitary practice on an island in the Pacific (Hawaii) to competing in huge events such as the X-Games, Gravity Games and World Championships. His passion has taken him all over the US and all the way to Germany and England. Since he was 11 years old he wanted to become pro and once he started he never looked back.
His career hasn’t been easy. He has had many broken bones, torn ligaments, and the huge disadvantage he has had from training away from other pros to inspire him. Thumper Nagasako’s unrelenting tenacity brought him from grass roots to world renowned.
