Barely Dead Lost Interviews: Jess Dyrenforth

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

In 2006, many of rollerblading’s most influential individuals were interviewed for the documentary Barely Dead. Six years later, these interviews provide intriguing commentary on the growth and progression of rollerblading and blade culture.

While fashions may have changed and companies have come and gone, the words spoken by these blading leaders capture the many complex nuances of rollerblading life. Watch for some rollerblading history from the recent past that we all experienced together.

Good news as quoted from Jess Dyrenforth:

As you may have heard already, Arlo Eisenberg, formerly of Franco Shade Clothing, has started a new label called GOST. I am happy to announce that I will be joining Arlo in this new venture.

Arlo and I have been friends for over fifteen years. In that time we have worked together on many projects. We toured the world together with the Roces Team and helped to develop the first aggressive inline skate, The Majestic 12. We collaborated for many years, along with Angie Walton, on Daily Bread Magazine. And finally, in 2004 Arlo and I became neighbors in Downtown Santa Ana in The Artists Village. Nothing could be more natural than Arlo and I embarking on this new chapter together.

I cannot tell you how excited I am about my new future with GOST. With Arlo’s creative direction and my fifteen years of experience handling production GOST promises to be a standout brand that will hit the ground running!

I have attached a sneak preview of some of the GOST Spring 09 line just to give you an idea of the direction.

I hope you will join me in GOING GOST in 2009!!
