Teaser: The Fucking Short Version
The rumors are true! A new rollerblading game is being developed as we speak.
This next-gen rollerblading game is designed to feel like you’re actually skating in terms of movement and look. Every trick, no matter how insane or difficult will look very convincing. We want you to feel the thrill of rolling outside while playing this game, inside.
The game includes a wide variety of styles: from big tricks and creative skating to parkour influences.
In order to achieve this convincing style that mirrors real-life skating, we went into a professional motion capture studio and captured as many skate movements as we could think of. These moves were performed by an experienced skater and were directed by another experienced skater. Every subtle nuance of the feet will be visible on your screen.
With the use of 3D scanning technology we’re creating very life-like characters within the game. We intend to capture the individual looks and styles of the most influential bladers in our community, so that it will feel as if you are skating as them.
The game will not focus on silly missions like e.g.: collect as many skate-DVD’s or bearings as you can find or other activities that take away the focus from enjoying the pure movement of skating and we are building a huge city for you to explore while doing just that.
Of course you won’t always have to do the exploring by yourself, the game will also feature an online multiplayer option where you can have kick-ass blading sessions with your friends or just cruise through the landscape together. So no matter the weather, rain, snow, unbearable heat you get to roll with your friends from the comfort of your home.
Here’s your chance to try out tricks you haven’t had the guts to do in real life. The possibilities are endless.
The game will be released for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
Development is advancing really fast so expect to see some in-game footage within the next few months!
The 2014 USD Carbon 3 boots are all White and ready to customize with frames, wheels and bearings of your choice.
This new Carbon III from USD is a softboot hybrid with a newly designed skin. So you’ll notice some tweaks to the lines and stitching if comparing to other Carbons. The buckle receptor is improved upon from the old but just like the Carbon 2, the Carbon 3 is designed to be light and durable.
The PU Cuff gives support and flexibility. The V-Cut is created with an exclusive mold to match the lining of the skate for improved flex. This gives a better heel lock and makes it less likely to tear on you.
The Carbon 3 has a unique one-piece tongue design that is incredibly comfortable and flexible.
The Carbon 3 Boots feature a rigid carbon fiber internal structure that provides superior support where you need it and well though out ‘flex zones’ where you don’t.
5 Year Guarantee against any defects of the Carbon Shell, not including damage from wear and tear.

A one day edit from Ecuador from a small downhill comp in Quito. Some ramps and boxes placed different places. There was a really nice atmosphere, and a lot of the locals living around came and watch too. – Michael Pedersen.

Released in 2011, Ground Control GC.1 came to define a years worth of achievement from the blading community. Featuring a strong roster of talent from the team itself and directed by Simon Mulvaney, this film documents the story of the frames beneath the feet of each of the GC team.
We spend Episode 18 with some of the Ground Control team and their friends at Damien Wilson‘s house for Thanksgiving, with a hearty menu of turkey, mimosa and some chilled blading.
Song: Sam Jones – Hi Bon.
Simon Mulvaney directed a commercial for an urban lifestyle brand called ‘Planet Of My Own’, featuring Adam Kola. Check the video on Youtube.
