After his first place finish in the prelims, Marc Englehart was up all night doing a rain dance. Still, the vert comp went off without a hitch. TaÃ¯g Khris threw down; Shane Yost killed it, but in the end, nobody could top the original golden boy, Takeshi Yasutoko.
Here is the flyer of the ‘Jam w Szczecinie’ : a baby trying to grab skates growing on a tree! The artwork done on this image by MichaÅ‚ SzaÅ‚kiewicz is so original! This is my wallpaper at the moment and i’m sure that a lot of people will enjoy it.

Here is an ad that is currently broadcasted in France. It’s about the Fiat Grande Punto car and features a rollerblader. The skater don’t do anything too fancy (he rolls, do a 360 and launch a soul) but it was a nice surprise to discover it ! Anyone got an idea of the skater’s name or details about the ad ? (was it even shot in France ?)
Here is an interview of Jojo Jacobi ; if you don’t know Jojo, he is the organiser of the Winterclash Contest, works at Ignition Skateshop and he’s a pretty good skater !
What is Rollerblading for you ?
Rollerblading is what I amâ€¦
Sounds stupid.. I know! But what would I be without all the traveling in the last years, all the experiences, the friends in so much different countries? What would I be without all the good times on skates, the chill sessions with my best friends at the local skatepark and the feeling at big and even small events ? A lot of people are answering this question the same way and you probably think its just stereotype stuff.
But it isn’t!!! IÂ´m skating for a bit more than 9 years now, that’s nearly the half of my life. Since the first Winterclash i have Rollerblading in my head for 24/7. I had a normal job in a shoe store. During the day at work i thought about new ideas all the time. When there was nothing to do i just walked around as if i would be on drugs – just because i had so much stuff in my head. In the evening after the work i run back at home to my computer and started to work again for what i was believing in. I slept 4-5 hours a night, lost friendships, wasn’t able to see my parents once a week and saw my girlfriend just in the bed.
But that was exactly what i wanted to do! I had ideas and i wanted to realize them. Why? Because i love rollerblading and without it, i would be a completely other person. And with the Winterclash i got my chance to give something back. [...]
