USD Robert Lievanos Pro-Skates

September 19th, 2006

USD Robert Lievanos

When USD gave me the opportunity to design my own skate I was excited like anyone would be. This is my third Pro Skate, and I’m honored to have the experience to design my own skate.

I knew that this project would be a great experience for me because USD listens to the skaters. This skate is a new VII boot only. To begin the process of my design, I began brain storming and writing down some of my ideas. I knew that I wanted to use a similar material to snake skin since I have always liked the way snake skin looks on your feet. My ideas came together and I began to design.

I thought the design should be simple and clean. I didn’t want the skate to be too crazy in design because of the material I used. I decided to go with black and white, which are both my two favorite colors. After all of the designing, USD had some
samples to go over, we made some changes and now the skate is out.

I would like to thank USD for all their support in Rollerblading and for their support in myself. To all the Rollers out there, support the supporters.

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.

In-Line Skate : Your Way To Fabulous Legs

September 18th, 2006

weight watchers

Well, if you started worrying about your weight, don’t give up skating, this is the perfect activity to handle your problems ;)

Heather’s love affair with in-line skating started innocently enough. An undergraduate at Queen’s University in Kingston during the mid-1990s, she was looking for a physical outlet that would help her slough off the stress of her studies.

“The in-line skating craze was just catching on then,” Heather recalled. “I was in a second-hand clothing store and saw a pair of beaten up plastic, pink and white skates that looked like they¹d been owned by a child and I bought them for $3.”

A year and a move to Montreal later and Heather was practicing moves on her skates that would eventually help her to shed 35 pounds* and streamline her body. “I had moved to Montreal to attend Concordia University. I’d get home, feed the cats, strap on my blades and go to an empty parking lot in my neighbourhood to practice twists and turns because I knew it would be good for my waistline. And I’d practice backing up because I knew that would be good for the gluteus muscles in my rear.”

Eventually, she began wearing the skates to run errands, a habit she maintains today. “I pack a pair of sandals in my backpack and skate to the ATM, supermarket and dry cleaners,” she said. “Slowly but surely, I’ve noticed my body toning up.”

In-line skating is the perfect activity to tone legs and buttocks, say fitness experts. And the good news is that it’s so much fun, it doesn’t even feel like exercise. [...]

Review : Able Series III Frames

September 17th, 2006

Able Series III Frames

When it comes to picking skates and parts for your skates there are so many options. Back when I started skating the only thing you could customize were your wheels, now days there is an infinite amount of different possibilities for a skate. You can change the colors, cuffs, liners, frames, and soul plates. It makes skating more appealing to people because they can have their setup be just how they want it.

The ability to customize your skates also makes people better at rollerblading. This is because certain people are comfortable with certain skate parts. The more comfortable you are in a skate set up the more likely you are to try some harder tricks. And since you can put almost any part on any skate, rollers are finding exactly what feels good for them.

Picking the right skate frames is a big deal. It can make or break a pair of rollerblades. You have a wide variety of frames to choose from, and they all have their own feel to them and they all skate a little bit differently. Ground Control, Kizer, Xsjado, Fifty-Fifty, and Able are a few of the most popular frames out there. I personally skated Xsjado frames for about a year. Once it was time to change frames I was not sure of what frame I should choose. [...]
