10 MINUTES: With Kaya Turski

Check this interview of Kaya Turski, pro skater and freestyle skier.

What’s going on with your rollerblading career and how has it helped your skiing?

Women’s rollerblading is really slow right now, so I’m taking it easy in the skating world. Lately I’ve actually been skating vert, something I was never really doing seriously, so I can try to bring that to skiing pipe.

Rollerblading helps me a lot for skiing with balance on rails and landings. If you can land on skates, chances are you can land on something 20 times the size of skates. [...]

Wheel Anti-Reversal Device

December 31st, 2006

standing on a curb

Wheel Anti-Reversing Technology was initially developed by Bruce Honaker to give beginning skaters a safe advantage while learning the basic skills necessary to inline skate. The novice can keep both skates constantly on the ground, and parallel to each other. This creates a very comfortable and stable method as he/she shuffles forward to gain momentum.

As the novice becomes more confident, the “baby strides” come more naturally. Soon, the regular dynamics of skating are developed and the device may be removed or disengaged.

If i’m not wrong the idea is to prevent the skates from going backward. I think this can be a nice idea for beginning skaters.. Ok, i allready see the feedback ‘we, hardcore skaters do it backwards too’, yes true but the idea is maybe to ease the start of future skaters, we definately need young blood in the scene.

By the way, how does this work (maybe in the bearings ? i saw no image explanation of the device).

Thanks to Too Fast

Imyta Plus 2006 : ShopKaput Galleries

December 31st, 2006

IMYTA+ or I Match Your Trick Association Plus, which is what this strange abbreviation stands for, is the single biggest skate event on the planet.

It came into existence in the year 2000, when the world was a happy place and a lot seemed possible. Jon Julio, the skating legend, created the second ever skate competition on real street. (The first ever was held three weeks prior, was called the Truth Real Street Comp, and was organised by yours truly, by the way).

The real street concept was an immediate success. But for IMYTA, success did not last, due to the increasingly repressive climate in the US.

Shop Kaput published two pages of photos from the Imyta Plus 2006 :

Thanks Gijs

up : I love this photo of Dominic Wagner and Mathias Silhan. It was taken by Alex Schneider at the Last Man Standing comp that took place before the Imyta+. It really looks like the skaters are playing cat and mouse in the bowl.

Free Schneebrunzer Download

Schneebrunzer: Eigentlich hätte dieses Video im Jahre 2004 herauskommen sollen, da das was ich will, und das was ich tue mindestens 3 Paar Schuhe sind, ist dieses Video nie fertig geworden. Mit dem ständigen Willen das roh geschnittene Video noch fertig zu stellen verbrachte ich so manchen Tag vor dem PC (Personal Computer). Da ich aber in meiner Panik seinerzeit mit Windows Movie Maker (superprofi Programm) gearbeitet hatte, stellte sich die Nachbearbeitung zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt als äußerst langwierig und Uncool dar. Weil ich es aber lieber cool und lässig hab, hab ich das Video immer schön vor mir her geschoben. Da es jetzt soweit ist dass man sowieso nie im Leben Geld für diese Aneinanderreihung von clips zu verlangen, und Gabriels Videos leider zu gut für diese Seite sind, hab ich mich entschlossen alle paar Tage einen Teil des unfertigen “Videos“ zum Downloaden freizugeben.

Es handelt sich nicht um ein “super I love you baby dance jackson Video” sondern um die verarbeitung der Videoclips die ich von meinen kleinen Freunden im Sommer 2004 gefilmt habe.

Since my german skills are pretty limited i won’t be able to tell you much about this video from Austrianinline. But it seems that it was edited in 2004 and was planned to be released in 2005 (and wasn’t). The video features Fridolin Eelbo.
