Featuring Kris Troyer, Tim Adams, Grant Hazelton, Alex Ryerson, Christian Delfino and Austin Paz. Special guest appearance by Alf and Nemo.
Kenny is Kenny, there’s no way to describe him, he is who he is. That’s actually what makes him stand out, not following the latest trends, or look.
What you see is what you get. You give Kenny a little “nudge” in the right direction, and he’ll end up surprising himself.
He’s progressed a lot this year, and he’s just figuring out now what he’s capable of doing on blades. He’ s becoming one of Arizona’s best up and coming skaters in our scene.
Filmed & edited by Jon Jenkins.
Quoting Jon Jenkins:
Each year Nemo (Andrew Nemiroski) makes his annual trip to escape the cold East Coast winters to skate Arizona, he’s been doing this for 3-4 years now.
Since day one, Nemo has always carried a high standard for both his skating, and the way it’s portrayed.
He’s a talented photographer/videographer as well, he has a strong vision for blading.
This footage is a little dated, still really good none the less, but to be honest – Nemo’s last trip out to AZ, he was on a whole new level.
Quoting Jon Jenkins:
Damien Wilson is an individual. Damien is in his own category, never one to fit any mold, he has always stood out from the rest.
His skating is influential, his creativity flows when he skates. Off the blades, he’s never afraid to speak his mind, Damien will tell you how it is.
I’ve always admired that about him, what you see is exactly what you get.
Jeremy Spira (Denver, CO) has one of our favorite styles. We filmed these clips spanning from skate trips to San Francisco, NYC, and Arizona.
The roll-in to fence stall in Arizona was insane, the first few rolls he was hitting the transition at the bottom so hard his buckles would come undone. Spira rips it.

John Bolino is unreal, it makes you sick watching him skate. He’s at the forefront of progression, showing us all what is possible on a set of blades.
But, does he care to be in the limelight? No. That’s what makes John stand out, he’s humble, and he is loyal to the simple things in life. Having fun with his friends, and blading because he loves it.
Adam Caroselli moved to Arizona from NYC with Austin Paz last year. Adam always kept things fresh at the session, never taking skating or himself too seriously.
Adam rips, he has one of the best ao fishes in the game. We miss having him in Arizona, but his heart is in NYC. Filmed by Jon Jenkins.
Sergio Ybarra is a staple in our Arizona skate scene. Sergio lives it. He’ll work a 10 hour shift, then go blade.
He’s the skater you can rely on to come pick you up for a session, house a skater he just met, or just be there to give you props on your trick.
He’s a real friend to everyone, we’re thankful for skaters like Sergio. Filmed by Jon Jenkins.
Umberto Toselli (Phoenix, AZ) drips positivity and steez on and off the blades. This was Umberto’s second time visiting Arizona.
He is the person you want to have at the session at all times. These clips were all shot on his last trip out to the desert.
Alec Gentile (Phoenix, AZ) has been ripping up the streets of Arizona for quite some time now. He has a solid bag of tricks and steps up to the plate when needed.
Alec accumulated these tricks while tagging along during some of the filming of our 90 seconds edits.
Make sure to check out Alec’s full part in Devan Stewarts new video “Evil Never Dies” when it releases.
