Nitro Circus comes to North America next weekend, right? What’s going on? When does the tour start?
The actual tour isn’t ’til next year, but we are doing a one-off show in Vegas next weekend, so tomorrow I am heading to a spot in California where they have the ramp set up so we can catch some practice/learn some new stuff before that show.
It sounds like the Las Vegas stop is supposed to be pretty special. What’s the story?
Yeah, Vegas is going to go off! Since it is a single show no one really has to be worried about being healthy for a show the next night, so I think a lot of people are planning some special tricks for this one. Every show is already insane, so I can’t even imagine how crazy this one is going to be. On top of that, they are bringing in some special guests for this one, so it should be the best show to date.

Starting in August we will set out to accomplish what some people thought we failed at with our last project. We switched up the format a bit and instead of making a tour video we will be making a profile video with all the tour footage being used for updates online.
20 skaters limited to 20 tricks for their part. Anything else will go online to promote the project. Sure to be wild parts featuring some of the best established talent as well as up-and-coming skaters.
Featuring Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, Don Bambrick, John Bolino, Billy O’Neill, Montre Livigston, Victor Arias, Michael Collins, Michael Garlinghouse, Bfree, PJ Peincak, Kruise Sapstein, Ross Kuhn, Tien Nguyen, Enanoh, Adam Exline, Dylan Davis, KC Roche, Dominic Sagona, Nick LaBarre.
With your pledges we can be assured of taking the above skaters to the far reaches of America and Canada and making for what could very well be the video of the year. Don’t look at this as a handout or a donation as you will be getting something very worthwhile with your donation (whichever level you choose) and you will be helping to keep the movement progressing.
Money will be used to fund travel costs. The more we have the further we go and the better the video will turn out.
This is the contest that started it all. The Hoedown’s unique jam session style format draws the top professional and amateur rollerbladers from all over the world.
Don’t miss the Competition Event of the year for street skaters! Every year all of the best street skaters from all over the world make the pilgrimage to Plano, Texas to compete in The Showdown at The Hoedown.

The past two issues of ONE magazine (and a poster from Intuition Skate) have featured some phenomenal blading from Straight Jacket riders captured in action while filming for Charging and now you can see all those photos here along with an edit showing how each trick went down.
And as thanks to AJ for not only making Charging but putting together this lil promo edit, head over to the Straight Jacket site to take advantage of savings on all online orders.
