January 15th, 2007

nokia fise dvd with an erik bailey poster

Here is the Nokia Fise 2006 official Dvd. The dvd is pretty good and features a rollerblading street plus ramp edit ; in bonus you even got a street profile of the french legend Wilfried Rossignol.

8 posters are offered with the dvd and take a look above, Erik Bailey was featured for the rollerblading one. Of course as usual for the Fise, other extreme sports are featured (bmx, motorbike, skateboard, …).

About the dvd : the language used in french, but there is an english dubbing for the dvd (not sure about the technical term, but the volume of the french language is lowered while an english voice translate at the same time).

The dvd is a kind of reportage and is really better than the previous year ; some riders like Wilfried Rossignol, Taig Khris, Jon Julio and others are interviewed.

If you’re interestested you can purchase the dvd online for 10 euros (shipping included but i’m not sure they ship worldwide).

stephane alfano

Stephane Alfano was featured as the Man of the Day on M6, a french tv channel. The broadcast aired in 2004. Check below to get a transcript if you don’t understand french language.

Stephane Alfano :
I started with skateboard, then switched to rollerblading because my friends were bladers and i really enjoyed it.

Tv dude :
And Stephane started to be good at it, so good than he became number 1. Nothing can stop Stephane when he got his skates on.

Stephane Alfano :
When i was 15, i got my first World Champion title in Dallas and then i got pro.

Eric Ferrando : (Nice Roller Association President)
Stephane love the competition, where there is a challenge, he always want to win. So badly than we can hardly manage to stop him.

Tv dude :
And Stephane wins a lot! He was the first rider to launch the 1080°…

Stephane will soon compete to keep his title (note : the video is from 2004). He will run for the glory and for … girls :

Stephane Alfano :
It makes it easier with girls, you know i’m number 1. I only need a smile, and then we end the night at the hotel…

MTV Skateboarder Commercial

January 13th, 2007

Two serious-looking young guys in baseball caps arrive with a big tool kit, blocks of wood and some blueprints. They begin sawing, drilling and hammering.

They build a half-pipe for skateboarding and, when it’s complete, give each other a macho handshake and then pull each other forward for a sensual kiss. The text then offers, “You never know.”

The young audience of MTV of course respects the idea of skaters, but would not expect them to be gay. The kiss is an unexpected juxtaposition against the macho handshake, thus breaking stereotypes.

Don’t miss the rollerblading related comments on the youtube page of the video… Link

Thanks Razors_2005!

Skating Photos by Afred

Afred posted some of his great shots in the Rollernews Flickr Group. The render of the images is really nice, here is how Afred proceeded :

For the colors, I converted to black and white then messed with the color channels. Once i was happy, i then took the original color image, and placed it over on a new layer, and set the transparency down to around 60% or so. This is all from memory, so i’m not positive.
