It’s called stunt rollerblading, and one of the biggest events in the world is happening here in metro Detroit this weekend.

Would you believe the world’s premiere indoor skate park is right on the border of Madison Heights and Royal Oak?

“We have people from Europe, South Africa, Brazil, Peru, Australia,” said owner George Leichtweis.

Leichtweis is once again welcoming the best inline skaters and thousands of spectators for the Tenth Annual Bitter Cold Showdown at Modern Skate Friday and Saturday. [...]

After 3 years of testing and developement Remz presents its latest masterpiece, the brand New ChrisHaffey Signature 2.0.
The skate was entirely rethought by Chris Haffey who personally put a multitude of samples through the test to meet his high expectations.

Style-wise Chris takes it back to the days when he began riding Remz. The skate features the classic color scheme reminiscent of the first Remedy, a fresh low cut skin, a redesigned rear lacing system, and strong hockey laces giving the skate a distinctive and athletic look. “When you’re rocking these they look like mid-top shoes, looks super sick!” says Chris.

Technically speaking the Haffey2.0 introduces Remz’ new concept of High Resilience (HR) skin giving optimum control & foot support, as well as a redesigned Remz liner offering an even more precise & accurate all around fit with a new ergonomic insole & a softer shock absorber. “It sucks your foot in there and keeps it right where it needs to be so you’re in complete control at all times”.

The ChrisHaffey 2.0 features Chris’ own V-cut + strap setup, with the optional buckle included in the box, GC FTL2 frames and new Chris Haffey 4×4 wheels.

As a reflection of Chris, The Remz Chris Haffey Signature skate blends superior technique and progressive style. Freedom-of-feet approved.

Chris Haffey: Shock Interview Part2: Skate Life

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

chris haffey

I have heard that you are a nomad these days. What prompted you to pick up your things and go everywhere and stay nowhere? What are some pros and cons to being a nomadic wandering professional rollerblader?

Yea, I am actually looking for a place at this point, but for the last 6 months I have been on the move.

The motivation behind the lifestyle came from my constant travel. I had been gone so much, and knew I would be going on so many trips in the coming months that paying 800 bucks a month for a place a was never at didn’t make sense anymore.

The main pro to that lifestyle is the lack of rent. It is really nice for the first to roll around and not give away about half my check. It was fun to cruise around responsibility free, always hanging out with new people, and not really feeling something pulling you back to one place.

As fun as it is, there are a few things I don’t like. My car is constantly packed to the brim.

Sometimes it was weird to come home from a long trip and be at the airport trying to figure out where to go instead of having your own space to go back to. Other than those things though it was pretty nice.

Chris haffey: Shock Interview

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

What do you think about the current state of blading “culture”?

In what ways could we make it more robust and interesting to the outside world?

That’s a hard question. I don’t think we need to change much at all. Its not that it needs to be more interesting, but that the outside world just needs to be shown how interesting it already is.

The thing is you can’t force feed it to people. I think something as simple as having events with the right format and the right courses (to keep it impressive to an outside eye) in the right places would help a lot. Places like Venice beach or any boardwalk of any beach for that matter.

Places with a stupid amount of foot traffic. They see how tight skating is, and I think you can get a good sense of the culture from an event like that. Especially if its less of a contest and more of just a showcase of tight blading.

If its relaxed and all the skaters are having a good time it will come across to all the people that walk by. I know when I used to go to NISS at Venice Beach I always wanted to get better just so I could be hanging out with everyone cause it looked like they were all having a good time on and off the course.
