CREATE ORIGINALS™ welcomes its two newest riders Alex Broskow & Chris Farmer to the 2010 Pro Team.
Anything worth doing is worth doing right and we wanted to welcome our new riders to the team with open arms. So when Chris Farmer and Alex Broskow were ready to make the commitment and join the ranks of the Create Originals Pro-team we felt we had to go the extra mile. We could have just had them send in some footage but we felt it was just as important to get hot footage as it was to get everyone together and skate as a team. Airline tickets were booked, the Kelso cruiser was fueled and arrangements were made for our team to have the 50,000 square foot Rye Airfield Skatepark all to ourselves for not 1 or 2 but 3 CO only sessions. Here is some more of what went down… ENJOY!
On another note spring is almost here and we at Create Originals have been working hard to get you a new line of frames to keep you looking fresh into these upcoming warmer months. We now have the ability to manufacture WATER PROOF and tear resistant graphic inserts IN HOUSE. What this means is that we are now unlimited in our options… there is going to be an explosion of new graphics coming. Starting with our new line of signature frames from everyone on our team… Sean and Colin Kelso, Billy O’Neill, John Bolino, Chris Farmer, Alex Broskow, Franco Cammayo, Austin Paz, Mark Wojda and our NEW team member. This new line is set to release at the Bitter Cold Show Down and we will announce the new rider there as well.
Along with the new line of frames there will be a new shirt line, 3 NEW COLORS of G-Blocks(only limited amounts available at BCSD), bandannas, dog tags and PRINTABLE BLANK GRAPHIC INSERTS. The Blanks are awesome! They are pre-cut inserts attached to sheets that allow you to either hand draw or print from your computer on them and then simply pull your graphic right from the page and insert them into your Create Originals frames. NO CUTTING REQUIRED!
Ok, so here’s the official press release to address all of the rumors about the Create Originals pro team.
When the three of us started Create, we had a vision for how we wanted to portray the company, team and image.
Our goal is to provide the best for the skate community in all aspects, not only with our product but with our team image and riders as well. Basically, we wanted to offer more than a new product, we wanted to give the skate community something to be excited about and proud of.
That being said, we at Create Originals are very proud to announce our TWO newest pro riders, Chris Farmer and Alex Broskow. We’re excited to have them on board and you can expect to see a lot of cool things coming from Create Originals in 2010. Welcome to the team fellas! CO.
The 2010 Pro Team: Sean Kelso, Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, John Bolino, Colin Kelso, Billy O’Neill.
In his issue #14 interview, Chris Farmer opened up to ONE like we were Barbara Walters. He told us about playing in his brother’s band, realizing skating was a job, and why he dicks around at contests. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
For an in-depth look at what’s going on inside the mind of one of blading’s most prolific innovators, be sure to check this out.
The official trailer for the upcoming dvd release starring John Bolino, Brett Dasovic, Jeph Howard, Michael Garlinghouse and Chris Farmer.
A full season of skating throughout the state of Minnesota as well as a tour of both the midwest AND east coast. Combining both trick selection and a desire to skate and create new spots TML2 shows what skaters are capable of when they combine an eye for good terrain with above par skating.

It’s pretty amazing how much better the blade community is getting recently in video production.
Everybody is stepping their game up. Paul John is no exception. Recently, Paul John has been working on creating skate edits that focus on style.
There is a lot of talk about how contemporary skate videos/edits don’t capture the style of the skaters as well as they did in the mid-90’s. Many people are trying to change this.
It is my opinion that PJ is one of the best film makers at capturing people’s style and making blading look good. Here are some behind the scenes stills of a production PJ is working on with Jon Murakami featuring Chris Farmer.
Chris Farmer is better than you at rollerblading and is also good at getting hammered. Read this in-depth interview to learn how you too can one day blade and get tanked.

What is particularly attractive about drinking to you? Why do you like to get tanked?
Nothing attractive, i just like to do it. i guess one plus is that it helps me sleep better, i fucking suck at sleepingâ€¦
If you only have $10.00 what do you buy at the liquor store for a night of fun filled black outs?
Well, since nightrain costs about 5 bucks a bottle in minnesota, iâ€™d get two of those and ask questions in the morning.
