Randy Spizer -Roadhouse- (31): 2012 Quick Shred Shesh

Known to skaters of the nineties as “Roadhouse”. Randy Spitzer has come to symbolize true street skating and longevity in a sport that tears through its star athletes.

He turned pro in 1996, at the age of sixteen and won the ASA World Champinships in 1997. For the next couple of years randy went underground.

He started a skate company, Deshi, a clothing company, Esoteric and a wheel company, Second regime, before reemerging in 2002 as a competitive force. (Asa Events).

    I realized a long time ago all these dudes are much better than some of these 14 year olds who will on day be 20 put them out to be. Acid True Mizou…

    I don’t even got that on my curb whoadie son!

    HAHA!! There should be more than 50 comments if more than 50 people over the age of 22 and are LEGITIMATE OG’s, WORKING HARD, SKATING HARD, MAINTAINING HARD, and checking the page DAILY.

    I can no doubt say I was blading before ASA was even around. I’m before Senate really popped off and had distro.

    Randy is a Badass Angler too! He is much better at fishing than true fishing… See what I did thar? This dude pretty much rules at life if you haven’t noticed.

  32. louie Z in SD Says:

    i skated this bowl with Roadhouse a few months back. we brought a camera but forgot to film. that happens when you are having fun, like we used to. Roadhouse is the definition of LEGEND. i just followed his lead.

    louie z

  33. Angel Jaime Says:

    This shitty edit made my day :)

  34. Alex M. Says:

    LEGEND!! Roadhouse and Louie Z. always skated with so much speed and control, that as a little grom, when I got to see them skate in person, I was amazed that they fell, like the rest of is.

    Gotta love it, to watch the legends still ripping, bucking the passage of time.

  35. Carlos "B@buL" Román - Puerto Rico Says:

    Randy Spizer IS Rollerblading! Those were the years 2000-2006! That was my era of Rollerblading and I know a lot of people like that era better than Rollerblading these dayz! This man is a LEGEND so all of U gremos that don’t know your Rollerblading history have to RESPECT what Randy DID and STILL will do to Rollerblading as a way of life! Saludos desde Puerto Rico and Roll4Life! I’m and OG myself in case U don’t know… :D Yescaaaaaaaa!

  36. Nick G. Says:

    RN should have posted his Noir section, every time I hear that shitty Justin Timberlake song I think of Roadhouse and his stupid 4 tone bleach job hair saying in the most high pitched voice “we gotta sneak Charlie Ashby in the back” (which is from the end of IMYTA but whatever)

    I love Randy Spizer, he was in my top 3 favorite skaters of all time. Fuck SSM, conference send Randy some carbons after all him and Louie fucking invented the general idea of them.

  37. ChrisBray Says:

    This is bar far the best thing i have seen on this site. Made my day.

  38. YAH ! Says:

    lol didn’t he skate to “Spice Girls” in on of his sections ! lol just remembered that :)

  39. deubeul Says:

    put his millenium section!!!

  40. heck $ Says:

    roadhouse was my rolling idol while i was growing up. now he’s a pro bass fisher too. dude still rips.. keep it up randy even if it is just for fun now in days.. i just turned 27 & i’ve been rolling since ’97. never for the money, i’ve never been good enough, but i’m gonna keep going till i can’t no more.

  41. WE LOVE ROADHOUSE Says:

    needs moar comments

  42. Ninjabeat Says:

    Dont forget he always skated with a smile in his face. Rollerblading has to be fun and he was one of the most important icons during the golden age of blading.

  43. Anonymous Says:

    his section in 50/50 juice is one of my all time favorites, go on the spizer

  44. GardenaMark Says:

  50. fag oli benet Says:

  51. Anonymous Says:

  57. Lay Phyu Says:

    i mean just did a stall and grinded a MINI RAMP QUATER one side…is this meant to be a joke? all hyped for that? I didn’t even see one 540 kinegrind

  58. ashmilly Says:

    Im a long time lurker, but I had to post when I saw this.
    Roadhouse was such an inspiration for many of us.
    Im 27 now but I still remember having the Senate Toykillas with the Roadhouse antirockers and Scribe bullets on my first pair of TRS’ like it was yesterday. Glad to see Randy is still killin it!

  59. dah Says:

    love Randy
    suprised how solid he still is, great style is timeless
    VG3 was the 2nd video I ever got
    shit, royals were new school back then
    randy was one of the first I saw do 270 back royal and later 270 back farv, massively tech fro the day, but he also went big too
    compared to Arlo or Chris Edwards who were “adults”, but Randy was my age. Most skaters were kids at the time and while we looked up to Arlo, Tom Fry, Rene, etc, we could directly relate to Randy and that, plus him being able to roll at the highest level made him a huge star back in the days when Senate would gross $10million a year.

  60. Anonymous Says:

    people might think that his skating is weak when comparing him to the top skaters of today but believe me when I say that back in the 90s, he was as dominant as Aragon or Haffey is right now.

  61. The Real Truth Says:

    Trolls are just pretending to say he sucks to get you all mad. Don’t believe the “lack of hype” hahahah Trolls. There should be more coming anytime now,haha losers.

  62. Colin Says:

    Fucking Legit…

  63. Tökös Says:

    This made my day. I didn’t expect him to come back one day. Same energy, same style, same Roadhouse.

    KEEP IT UP MAN! LET THE FISH SLEEP AND WAKE UP YOUR SENSES ON ROLLING!

  64. Trill Bill Says:

    The ssm hate has to stop… I’m sorry… My homie skates Sl’s finally quit crabbing and jumped on my old montre’s… He freaked out when he got a grabbed fish first try on an ugly ledge. He not only slid faster… (probably one piece soul helped…) but was more consistent, and locked his royales perfectly.

    Now I heard Sl’s had a “perfect” royale groove… just sayin’ SSM is a great skate, and they offer great support for their skaters. Everyone should try a pair that has rolled razors back in the day. SSM has barely been out a year, and look how much Whitelodge is pumping… That is BAWSS!

  65. talent310 Says:

    twas very nice to watch

  66. Danielson Says:

    Always thought he looked like a little kid, and still do, but dude is legendary… Wish he was putting out as much as Shima and Julio does since I’ve come to realize what a douche Shima is in real life, and I think everyone has been seeing alitle too much of both Shima & Julio. No disrespect, just feel like those guys are being shoved down your throat, just because they are a couple of the only og’s left in the game. Would be awesome to see Roadhouse more often. And I really wish Deshi was still around, eventhough I did’nt skate them much. Always thought they were some of the more attractive skates on the market. I would like to get a pair of work boots that looked like the old-school deshis :) “and a pair of sneakers that look like REMZ”

  67. Anonymous Says:

    he’s 13 in this…wake is 15 and still cant skate street….rollerblading has regressed

  68. Trill Bill Says:

    Some of these people that make statements about Brian Shima, don’t know him. Shima is humble, treats everyone inside and out of blading with respect, and that is why his business model is working.

    If he was really a douche why do mad talented skaters skate with him? Think about that. His team is LEGIT, and all the gents are tops.

    I should give you shima’s number… Dude is legit.

  69. He says She Says:

    Always a free spirited dude. I remember when he skated to spice girls in the Asa 97 championships in Naples, FL. Haha…now everything is so damn serious. Yo bro, I am way more underground than you.

  70. blue Says:

    I remember being 8 years old and seeing Roadhouse in the DB and Box Mags, where i was living it was hard to get your hands on any skate video due to living on a isolated island, i saw him in on asa and was always killing it and imyta detroit and did the same, most respect to the Og pros that still love to blade, it show the true love for rollerblading
