Quoting Dave Lang on Facebook:
I’m clearing up this Montre thing once and for all. I’m starting to feel sick over all of the hate being projected onto someone that I truly have respect for, Brian Shima.
After Blading Cup, Montre decided to change his flight back to North Carolina and spend some time out at Woodward with me. Funny enough, we ended up doing this twice and turned into one of the best times I’ve had in a while. During his stay here, I first heard of this whole rumor that Montre was switching companies. I don’t find my two cents on the Internet because quite frankly, nothing stated on any forum or message board is true. Especially when someone hides behind an alias and, (the ever so popular, “Anonymous”.
I’m stating this outright, I heard the entire conversation that Montre had with Shima. Yes, they spoke on the phone, nothing was taken care of through a text message .
Do you really think in all of the years Brian has been skating, that he would handle this situation in such an unprofessional matter?
Shima has infinite respect for everyone on his team.

Previously: Brian Shima, Create Originals Pro Team Introduction.
Many skaters have came and gone throughout the short history of our sport. Many talented people who have impacted blading immensely have came and went within a few short years, no longer to be seen again.
Only a handful have lasted the test of time and continue to progress skating to insane levels today.
Our newest pro rider for Create Originals is one of the most iconic pro’s that our industry has ever seen. Nobody has been skating as hard and as raw for as long as he has. He has an unmatchable track record throughout the years complete with legendary sections, interviews and contest placings.
This guy’s just one of the greatest and we couldn’t be happier to have him down. Ladies and gents, please welcome Brian Shima to the CO pro team. – Billy O’Neill.
There were countless reasons for originally having the thought to open a skate shop. I wanted to work for myself, I wanted to work doing something I love and have been doing for 16+ years, and the list goes on and on. One of the main reasons was because I wanted to create something I didn’t have growing up skating in the NJ/NY area.
I wanted to open a shop where kids could come and check out merchandise in person, meet other kids to skate with, and most importantly, a place where kids can come (very often at TSS!) and not just meet, but also SKATE with their idols. This was something I rarely had the opportunity to do as a young skater because I didn’t have access to a local shop.
TSS was lucky enough to have Brian Shima come thru with the entire SSM team, as well as Psyko Clothings Josue Diaz and some Psyko riders. SSM and Psyko being skater owned and operated businesses, Shima and Josue were generous enough to make the drive to the shop to do an autograph signing, but also actually skate with all the kids downstairs for quite sometime.
Seeing how happy the kids were (who’s shoes I was once in) when they meet and skate with their idols is an amazing feeling for me. To be able to do something positive for the kids in the local blading community. The same loyal customers, who without, there would be no TSS. I have been lucky enough to have almost all of the best BLADERS in the world come to TSS to meet and skate with the kids, some pro’s on more than 1 occasion.
TSS customers are lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet and skate with professional rollerbladers AT LEAST every few months here at TSS/Drop-In Skatepark. The gratification I get out of seeing the looks on peoples faces who are skating right next to their favorite pro is an indescribable feeling, and that is why I opened Tri-State Skate. Companies like SSM and Psyko (amongst MANY more) are the ones who help make it all happen. -G. kieffer.
Written and directed by industry pioneer Arlo Eisenberg, edited by rollerblading’s most influential filmmaker Joe Navran (FOR II, Elements, Coup De Tat) and produced by Mindgame‘s Shane Coburn, “What Do You Believe In?” set out to completely re-imagine what a rollerblading video could be.
“What Do You Believe In?” features five of the brightest stars in rollerblading: Brian Shima, Jon Elliott, Josh Petty, Rachard Johnson, and Jaren Grob. The video focuses on their skating, which is some of the best ever captured on film, but it is complemented by a surreal story line which weaves in and out of their sections.
“What Do You Believe In?” is not a narrative story in the conventional sense, nor is it a standard skate video neatly divided into rider’s sections. It is a low budget, experimental, artistic interpretation of skating that does not merely break all of the rules but seems to be completely unaware of them altogether.
The skating alone would rank “What Do You Believe In?” among the best videos ever made, but add to that its artistic vision and its fearless conviction to add something completely new to the rollerblading landscape and what you’ve got is an instant classic. “What Do You Believe In?” is a landmark video and a must have for any rollerbladers collection.
