The King Of Cleveland 2014 was a blade street contest held on a very cold a rainy Saturday in the city of Cleveland Ohio. It was a great time despite the weather and what not but beyond that I had a lot of fun.
It was a way better turn out than expected especially for the conditions given so I was just generally happy to see everyone and hang out with the homies.
A lot of bad ass tricks were laced overall but in the end some good times were had and there was another street competition notch to put on the belt. – Hawke Trackler.

Best Trick: Travis Rhodes.
Matt Lyon is 20 from Columbus Ohio. This young s.o.b used to skateboard around my neighborhood where I used to live and grew up and then one day he saw us skating the practice rail in the street and stopped by to check it out.
We asked him if he wanted to try to grind the rail and he said “yes” and then after a few attempts he ended up lacing the frontside haha. It was tight to see because he had never really rollerbladed before but you could tell he was instantly hooked (I believe he was like 14 years old at that time).
Since that day I have filmed matt lace some crazy clips, learn life lessons, be strange to people make us laugh, take bad falls, make alot friends, make a few mistakes in life but also have had ALOT of fun along the way haha.
Matt is hilarious, very friendly, street smart and is a great friend of mine, always has been…so now with that being said check out Mac Fryin gettin on da reg haha. – Hawke Trackler.
I have been filming and street skating for over a decade now. I have been fortune enough to be able to experience alot of great things from blading and its lead me to some really fun and interesting times with all sorts of different people.
I always admired the crazier individuals that rollerbladed when growing up. Mostly because I have always liked a stunt or big trick to get done and as time went by I actually was able to meet most of these awesome people along the way who I once and still look up to at certain times.
I traveled the US as much as I was able too wether it be for road trips, tours, filming contests, or just trying to get out of the house to experience something new and over time have been able to become homies with some of the top ams & pros from around the world.
I have usually focused on the filming aspect of skating so I have personally never been too amazing but have always tried pushing myself to see what I can do. It’s actually a really fun sport even tho there are some gnarly consequences when you don’t land haha but overall has a pretty chill open minded community and always welcoming new bladers and even old bladers because its all about what makes ya happy.

Kyle Wood is 24 years old from Columbus Ohio. Kyle and myself have been filming together for a very long time and have put out a lot of sections, edits, videos and so on. Its always fun and challenging to making a full blading section but I like how this one turned out.
Thanks to everyone who have watched and supported Kyle and his skating over the years. He is very talented, well rounded and loves blading so its awesome to present you with another new section of him. Enjoy. – Hawke Trackler.

Local Dayton Ohio Video. Very important in the long history of Ohio rollerblading. I did not edit this video (except the non sense crew part). I did film some tricks but it was a mix of alot of people. I think Ben Schwab edited it all. – Ryan Benner.
