As I remember you was playing soccer professionally, do you think did it have some impact on your skating?
Yep, I was playing football for some time in local soccer team, then in County Leagues events. I think it’s obvious that physical training helps you in blading which requires rather healthy and agile body.
Though as in every contact sport, the risk of an injury is high, I think I had more injuries from playing soccer than from rollerblading (including this which put me aside for one year). Even though I don’t play anymore I still try to keep fit – I exercise a lot and do some jogging regular. […]
Picture Me Rolling is a remake of a project produced in 2003 featuring some of the finest upcoming and established rollerbladers Canada has to offer. We’re using the same name but this tells a completely different story.
Throughout the 7 months that we had to skate and film for this project, through extremes of heat and cold, very serious injuries and putting up with the idea of skating for a camera the people involved consistently came though with hot lines, clean style, stunts, laughs, car rides, motivation, and of course solid friendship.
This opening section features Andrew Boyle, Mike David, Hans Hersbunner, Brandon Kaplan, Mike Lukewich, Sylvain Chaussée, Max Valade, Johnny Hoermann, Collin White, Blair Loughead, Aaron Wheat, Erik Burrow and David Ghent. Sit back and enjoy.
Music featured: Flosstradamus – overnight star. Dobie Gray – The in crowd. The RAA – Ballad of the RAA.
Each Wednesday for 5 weeks (starting Dec 22, 2010), we will give 2 sets of wheels and 2 sets of bearings.

JONAS: Besides barely getting rid of the flue, and growing ever so tired of sitting in front of a computer screen, ten hours a day on average for the last four months… Things are really good, a year and a half of working on the same project is nearly complete. Starting to feel a sense of accomplishment, damn it:)
RAD: You don’t need the big introduction, people have seen your last film Flygt 11.200 times. And you were the first guy to give away your newly produced movie ‘Adapt’ for free on the internet. So what we want to know is a little bit about where you grew up and how you started to skate?
JONAS: I grew up in the suburbs of Copenhagen, I think like a lot of kids back then (95/96) I got exposed to rollerblading through the X-games – watching Arlo and Ryan Jacklone on Eurosport defiantly got me hooked along with friends and a older brother who used to skateboard.
