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).

  • ashmilly

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • The Real Truth

    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.

  • Colin

    Fucking Legit…

  • Tökös

    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!

  • Trill Bill

    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!

    twas very nice to watch

  • Danielson

    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”

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

  • Trill Bill

    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.

  • He says She

    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.

    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
