Wow, if Aragon starts to take his incredible park rotations in the street, I can’t wait to see what Inline skating is going to be in 5 years. Props for that perfect 540 ! And it is true, this was some proper ledge destruction here..!
Aragon keeps defying skating. Keep in mind that he had SICK tricks back in 03 (when he was in his teens), and still does. Go watch his sections in Straight Jacket, Ego, etc… etc… you’ll notice he’s only progressed. Keep it up Aragon.
Razors and Ground Control seem to be the only companies that really believe that a new color = new technology. I bet the owners all have NOS stickers on their car as well and believe the sticker alone gives them +10 hp. Morons.
Is dre still on razors bcus he knows people. this dude really sucks. does same shit over and over again in every video. ARAGON in another hand is progressing and challenging himself and showing us bladers that going big is not bad at all. They need to kick dre off razors and put some talented young guns on the roster. DRE = wack
Sick!!! brian aragon is older than kelson, broskow, farmer and other skaters that have reduced their skating to tapping little rails and brian aragon still drops harmmers after hammers and looks even fitter. The only thing I wish he would drop is that gay bladergang t shirt he is wearing on that pic, he’s one of my favorite skaters but that is some gay shit.
People still hating on Dre, at least the guy is still out there and promoting. He is a TEAM rider, meaning when Mac asks him to do something he does it. Plus the guys is way marketable, have you guys met him? He is way nice and will talk to anyone, which can often be more valueable than some one that just “skates good” to a company.
If becoming pro was based just on skating, than Jeph would have been pro after his Game Theory section.
Keep progressing Aragon! Amazing! N I agree about Dre, he is an amazing representative for a company. He’s a super nice guy and he been skating for a long time, once you meet him, you no why he’s sponsered! Keep the edits coming Dre!!!
Met Dre a loooooooooooooooooooong time ago at a woodward event !
Fool was chill as fuck, chatted up about movies and music, he gave me his cell phone number and told me to hit him up about possibly collaborating on some work… I never did but regardless it’s that kind of attitude and personality that goes a long way.
why is Dre Powell a pro, no progression on his skating, same top acids and weird unitys on everything, same for aragon but atleast he makes cool switch ups, powell sucks and i wont buy anything he skates for
I always have wondered why you are sponsored Adrien…
Your attitude is wack and to be honest… your profiles are just as good as your online leftover edits!
No offense but before you hate on anyones skating I would first think about your skating, and I can’t see any progression either!
Stop hating dude!
But I give you credits for at least posting with your real name!!
still don’t undrstand how Dre Powell is Pro. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but there are thousands of skaters better than him. Why does razors, valo and Remz continue to sponsor guys when they are obviously well beyond their prime??????
I enjoyed this edit as much as the other razors edits. I understand that the song isn’t liked by others, but to each is their own.
Aragon just murders….. precise and clean switch ups
as for dre i always like seeing footage of him He is a OG and still holds it down
i don’t know why people hate on him so much it’s really pathetic of us as an industry, dre has been holding in down for a while. With all due respect does majority people know how hard to keep up with aragon in the same edit???? I think people forget that aragon is a beast and majority people that are in edits with him always get forgotten or shit on.

DRE POWELL is a TRUE PROFESSIONAL of our sport like it or not, he may not kill it every edit but still holds it down for a LONG TIME, I enjoy his “ninja” style because most can’t replicate it on their best day. Dre puts in work behind the Scenes that most of us don’t see and he needs the respect that is due to him
Keep up the good work
“pro” doesn’t come down to who is the best skater. why is that so hard for people to understand? skate companies are BUSINESSES, they don’t care who can do the most tricks, they care who sells the most skates. figure that out, explain it to your hometown hero that is “better than all the pros” and let them apply it to their skating and life. copying the pros and doing the tricks they did years ago will not make you a pro. even if you do it better than they did. do YOUR OWN THING and when people start copying you (aka you’re selling skates) then that is when you will be a pro. thank you and good night.
No one buys skates because Dre Powell’s name is on the skate. Razors was tying to create a “hood” image for their brand, which is why they had Dre, Bah, Rachard, Eric Rodriguez and Murda. But the only person who anyone cares about on Razors is Aragon, who is the most un-hood person in rollerblading. Razors neds to rethink their skates and their image. Their skates are so last decade, and they have lost to Carbons, and their team is made up of people no one respects except for Aragon.
Dre is still Pro because the rollerblading industry does everything wrong. Its why we are, where we are, and skateboarding is a booming industry.
Case in point, a 12 year old just did a 1080 in skateboarding, something the old guys could never do. He wil be propelled to stardom, featuted in the X-Games this year, make appearances on Disney Channel and become a household name by the age of 14. He will get kids excited to skateboard.
If a rollerblader did something big, he would be told his style sucks, and wait till you’re about 27 years old to pay your dues and suck Jon Julio’s dick a few times before becoming pro.
Everyone in America will know who the skateboard kid is, but who the fuck is Dre Powell? A true professional would help grow the sport, not just make edits doing the same fucking trick you’ve been doing for 10 years, a trick that any rollerblader can do.
you’re wrong, your argument is illogical and a solid industry came before disney. but hey if you hate blading so much and all the fucking legends and heroes that have created it, nobody is stopping you from picking up a skateboard and getting the fuck out.
