So we filmed alot on pretty much everyone from the Swedish rolling scene + Jacob Juul, Stefan Horngacher, Colin Kelso, Iain Mcleod, Lauri Rantanen, Adam Zurawiecki with more who where on visit!
The film featuring: A Stockholm section, The Grindhouse street comptetition in Helsingborg, a LinkÃ¶ping section, a mini Stockholm session section, 2 Montages and profiles on, Johan Edwardsson/Robin Orekvists profile, Johan Kallio profile, Christoffer Linder Profile and Peter Kallio profile. + Intro and slams/Credits..
I hope you enjoy it, the film is 45:38 minutes, so it can take some time to download.. But be patient :)
Many of you are going to say “What is wrong with them, we don’t need more skating companies”. We need more money put into existing ones”.
Well this might not be a bad thing. They are priced at a $59.99, which is pretty cheap compared to $139.99 – $314.99. This isn’t going to scare off too many parents at the sight of the price. Who knows this might be a nice thing.
This issue we bring you an interview with one of the best skaters in the world, Carlos Pianowski. It’s been a hell of a long time in the making as we have wanted to profile him in Be-mag ever since Quatro was released. After several failed attempts, due to problems with visa restrictions, injuries and all sorts of other obstacles, we finally have his full profile completed and we are proud to show you the results. Carlos, you rock! Stay tuned for more profiles of rolling legends this year as we have some major projects in the pipeline.
This issue we are featuring the creative minds behind Clip. They are back with a vengeance with their third release, and we caught up with them to get the lowdown on the new issue. Another feature article that we really wanted to get in this issue was the Falls story. We talked first-hand to the guys that were unfortunate enough to suffer some of the worst slams of the last year: Yuri, Brandon and Jojo, to get an insider’s view on how serious falls effect personal perspectives on rolling.
On the contest side we captured the haps at The Game and at the Winterclash, two of the most interesting contests lately. For the up and comer we chose to work on a profile with Sean Keane who came out strong for this issue. Wes Driver packed his photo gear and flew to Cali to document his Escape to Cali.
Flipping through the pages of this issue, you will see that we are continuing to expand the content of each issue, so sit back, enjoy, and get ready for a great year of rolling!
Watch Them Fly – Exclusive Interview with The Yasutoko Brothers (2002). by Venus Rae
My first initial thought of the Yasutoko’s brothers was graceful. I just arrived at the photographers’ ramp – and at that moment a blur motion in gray whizzed through the air directly in front of me. It took me a second to realize that this is one of the Yasutoko brothers – I’m not sure which one he was suspended in the air. He stayed there for a while, as if flying and then as fast and he got up he went down again, skating within the vertpipe.
Needless to say, I was already impressed. But who am I kidding, we’re talking about the Yasutoko brothers.
A brief history about them. Born and raised in Japan (although, growing up, they spend more time overseas than at their homeland), they got involved in the skating world at a very young age. Fast forward to their teenage years, they became instant hit in the world of agressive in-line skating, competing with the best the sport has to offer.
Victor Arias, Connor O’Brien, Iain Mcleod, and a few surprises
Alex Broskow, Matthias St. John, Mike French, Jeremy Soderburg, Santee Crew (including Nick Wood, Lyle Shivak, Damien Wilson, Jimmy Ormsby, Robbie Whitcomb), Kirk Lambert, Michael Collins, Winston Wardwell, and let’s just say a few other surprises
A Film by : Zack Blewitt, Brent Henderson, and Connor O’Brien. Will be released in Winter 2006 | Thanks Twinky-whiskey !
HEAT 06 TRESEDER 55/89
Beware of the Mini Weiner dog, this wheel is dedicated to Toryâ€™s little girl, this graphic is a must have! Black, white, and purple screen!
HEAT 06 STOCKWELL 58/89
Red Black and White screen with a nice little hollow body guitar all up in the graphic. Jeff liked his old colors so we stuck with that color scheme and just added the guitar graphic for the man who loves the instrument soâ€¦
HEAT 06 BAILEY 56/88
Lines of Trees paint stroked out to show off Baileyâ€™s Idaho country roots!
The designs are a bit different than the design you may saw on the A day with Tory Treseder Video Edit.
Wes Driver arrived at the Rat-tail house a couple of weeks ago lugging 450lbs of photo gear wrapped in the few articles of clothing he owned. Leaving all signs of sobriety back in New York City he began running us through some of his projects and portfolio work.
As I glanced through Burberry models and 6ft’4 bone to skin Chanel models he had shot, I noticed a photo of Micah Yeager. It was one of the more elitist personality shots, something so different from the white nosed hey I totally just like puked up my lunch humans. With his Bleach blonde hair and a smirk wiring his face saying “I truly don’t like you, or anyone for that matter”. You could see something unique dripping out of this this photo, but you couldn’t really put your finger on it.
