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.
The third in a growing series of real street competitions held by pro skater Jon Julio. This time we find ourselves in Escondido for an out battle among the top street pros during the ASR weekend.
The coverage takes you behinds the scenes and captures exclusive industry leader interviews right alongside the competitors. Josh Petty makes history at his old stomping grounds while picking up a cool 2000 dollars. You will not find better coverage of what happened that glorious day in Esco.
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.
