In the 1990s alternative sports proliferated. One sport that captured the vibe of this era was Aggressive Inline. Considered by many analysts to be a billion dollar industry it all but vanished at the end of the decade. Rolling Along: An Inline Movement is the story of this sport from its birth to its rapid accent, crash and current underground status.

The Airman. The Goldenboy. The OG.
If you own a pair of rollerblades, you should know who Chris Edwards is. If you don’t know about the Airman, you need to. Chris invented a lot of the first tricks in our sport, was the first person to ever grind a rail on rollerblades, had the first ever pro model skate from a rollerblading company, and was a stuntman in the movies Airborne, Batman & Robin, The Mighty Ducks, and Prayer of the Rollerboys. He also helped create the first rollerblading video game, Aggressive Inline.
I had the pleasure to work for Chris and blade with him quite often while living in Pittsburgh. He still shreds hard as ever when he gets the chance. Chris continues to be a positive part of our scene, teaching new kids how to blade and inspiring old ones to keep blades on their feet. His accomplishments and legend should never be forgotten.
