Nicolas Schopfer was our king of the street today. The Swiss skater had the cleanest run out of everyone. His highlights included a 360, negative makio down the ledge, acid soul and a 270 backside farfegnugen.

Inline Vert Finals Recap

I’m in Berlin. It’s pretty sweet here. Lots of history and cool architecture everywhere. I mean, just 17 years ago, the Scorpions’ power ballad “Wings Of Change” was the soundtrack as the wall came down and history was made.

History was made again today, and this time, the soundtrack was Guns and Roses’ Night Train (as requested by Shane Yost and played by super-DJ Pat Sweeney). Read the full article

    notice the asa only has one stop here in america………………
    the asa paid for haffey’s plane ticket and hotel rooms just so he would show up and make them look better. they have ruined their image with the american skaters and now are trying to make their money by scaming the rest of the world. I saw footage of the event (not filmed by the asa) and the only reason haffey got 3rd is he stumbled on one trick but the rest of his run was way sicker than anyone else there.

    please support the IMYTA and RFCC not the asa.

    Wait, so he did just a 360, no grind afterward? I could do all those tricks. These comps are a damn joke. like W said, support IMYTA and RFCC, not this shite.

    haters shut the hell up

    nico is the man

  11. w Says:

    we are not talking shit about nico just the asa. All you have to do to win is a bunch of sole grinds and 360s and stay on your feet to win. This pervents skaters from doing larger stunts because they will loose points if stumble.
    I worked for them from 98 to 2001 as a director and a pro tour judge. The whole time i fought for a better format that forgives small stumbles so we can see people try 540s to grinds. The people who own it do not skate and don’t understand that sometimes your foot will drag after doing a grind to a 10 foot drop.

    asa = weak… fuck’em

  13. mushroom Says:

    dont worry mihai they are not worth it….

    Some people are so ignorant. If we only support the RFCC and other street comps, keeping the sport underground…we aren’t going to have skates in a few years. The ASA is putting money in professional skaters’ pockets who are only making a few hundred a month from their sponsors. Yeah, that’s right…you would be shocked to know how little Chris Haffey, Frankie, and Stockwell make from skate companies. It’s unbelievably low. Not enough to move out of your parents homes, that’s for sure. Jeff lived with his mom until he was 20..and he still might live with her. And the ASA did not pay for Haffey to come. He paid his own way. So that was a bold uneducated statement. I’m remaining anonymous because there are so many haters on this web-site making posts. The bottom line is that ASA brings us tv time, prize money, and corporate sponsorships. Watch our industry die even more so than it already has by not supporting everything that rollerblading has to offer.

  20. Z Says:

    Not only that…it exposes rollerblading to crowds of people. It’d be nice if people would decide to buy skates after watching us on tv instead of a skateboard.
