After a brief warm-up, we headed to this up-ledge/ bank/ bank-to-ledge spot under the Brooklyn Bridge. The guys were able to lace some sick tricks before we got rained out.

Enjoy the first team video by Ivan Narez—and the only blading video on iTunes — as he and the team work to complete the next Valo team video, V, due out Summer 2013.
After 18 years of blading, looking at things in retrospect, the past year alone has been an enormous upward spike for me in the game of life.
With the help of amazing friends, and colleagues, I have this compilation of deals chopped together and ultimately created by the wonder team behind OG.
The filming experience graced me the pleasure of getting closer with amazing people such as Sam DeAngelis, Cesar Macay, Hector “Tato” Ganzalas, & Dan Fabiano in particular who kept me motivated and were always ready to work around my wild schedule between being a therapist and a blader.
The most important ingredient in the outcome of this short would have to be the work ethic and faith in the companies growth and direction. It is about embracing evolution to me.
As far as the products go, I personally had minimal problems from the beginning. With constant renovations of the frame mold & compound; I’ve had more or less no complaints. They have survived my blading through the past year and it’s been a fun and fresh ride the whole way through.
Always solid and always sliding. Thank you incredibly much to those I’ve mentioned and the dear friends that were around throughout those random sessions. Ya’ll know who you are. Thank you east coast, thank you west coast, thank you all coasts. Shred life. – Franco Cammayo.
This is my 2nd installment of my Winter filming at Shields Skatepark in Flemington, New Jersey. As you know, during the Winters it can be hard to find appropriate weather to street skate, so we find our home at Shields on many Tuesday and Thursday nights where its ‘rollerblade’ only.
Even though I attended nearly 20-25 sessions this Winter, I only picked up the camera 5-6 times. These were classified to be the best tricks I captured during my Winter months. I filmed many people, but unfortunately not everyone made the cut due to song length. Have no fear, there will be plenty more edits in which you can get your chance. Until next time..
Featuring Franco Cammayo, Steve Nichols, Mikey Roman, Jimmy Shuda, Joe Torres, Dan Fabiano, Will Harvey, Mike Hazard, Tim Franken, Shawn Gradilone, Chris Esposito, Ryan Many, Seiichi Daimo, Wake Schepman.
Filmed & Edited by Dan Fabiano ; Music: Ratatat – Drugs.
Franco Cammayo recently helped Austin Paz make the move from NYC to Arizona. Franco was able to spend 4 days in Arizona, we skated everyday, chilled at the shop, and filmed his Revolution “On The Spot.”
We all know that these days earning money only through skating is not easy. Not giving up on your studies, making the good choices, while you’re so involved with rollerblading, it can be complicated.
Also, what do you do in order to keep skating after age 25? I sought out professional and non-professional rollerbladers, to ask them about their perspectives. Perseverance, compromise, adaptation, discover their stories along with me.
