40 Shades of Green, Dvd from Ireland, coming soon!
The face of rollerblading is changing. A select few have shown up and become the new leaders of our sport through their total dedication, ability and style. Their professional attitude and unquestionable skill portrays rollerblading in the light it has longed for. These are the special people who will stand the test of time and continue to push us onwards and upwards.
Erik Bailey is a member of this select band of individuals – a friendly, down to earth character who commits all of his energy to the essential meaning of rolling. Eric is pushing our sport to a new level and we are proud to support him in every move he makes from now on.
Frenchman Jean-Yves Blondeau first conceived of his plastic Buggy Rollin’ suit in 1994, while he was a student at Olivier de Serres design school, in Paris.
But the invention, which allows a wearer to top 60 miles per hour while maintaining any position found in the Kama Sutra, didn’t exactly catch fire with consumers. Not one to give up, Blondeau recently refined the suit to a stripped-down 31-wheel version and developed his own playbook of moves, like the Zaphial (rolling flat on your back with all four limbs pointed straight up) and the Smooth Buggy Dog (three limbs on the ground and one rolling along a wall).
And if you’re into japanese mangas, you may noticed that the Suit of Jean-Yves Blondeau is really close some of the things we can see in Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita) by Yukito Kushiro.
