SKATER MAGAZINE Issue #1 (1998)
SKATER MAGAZINE Issue #1 came out around July 1998 and it was the final issue due to the negative feedback of the cover wording. On the cover is one of Rollerblading’s most infamous personality’s: New York City’s own RAWLINSON RIVERA. And all it took was 1 classic sentence of Rawls Royce’s lingo to throw the literary world into an uproar. “WHO’S THE JOHNNIEST NIGGA YOU KNOW?” was plastered on the cover alongside his scowl and the rest is history.
Just by the cover alone you can easily tell that this Rollerblading magazine was catering to the older crowd… It even had a centerfold model semi-nude wearing a SKATER MAGAZINE t-shirt. This was definitely not for the little grommets at the skateparks with the oversized skates getting in everybody’s way. […]
LOOKBACK #7: Some Free Advice (1996)
Here’s the 1996 video SOME FREE ADVICE from Top Shelf Films. Read all about it at believeinone.com in the latest LOOKBACK.
“‘Some Free Advice’ is a journey into the philosophies of inline skating. From simple grinds on street to 720 McTwists on vert to Misty Flips over fun boxes… this film displays and describes the tricks in full detail. Watch skaters like Ryan Jacklone and Dave Ortega perform their favorite tricks and then hear them describe how they do it.” — From the back cover
The idea of an instructional video for blading always seemed strange to me, but the ’90s gave us at least three of them. Two Volumes of “Some Free Advice” and “Ride Like Aaron,” which was made by the guys who brought us Heavy Wheel company. “Ride Like Aaron” was supposed to teach you to skate like Aaron Feinberg. It was horrid. Imagine descriptions of how to do a back royale while the same clip of Aaron doing a back royale played on loop for several minutes in slow-mo… […]
Featuring Josh Petty, Nicky Adams, Rawlinson Rivera, Blake Dennis and Brian Smith as the Interviewer.

One strange day, in 2002 or so, my friend Nick and I were sitting at a bus stop in Springfield, VA about to board a greyhound to Nashville, Tennessee en route to Plano, Texas for The Hoedown. We both sat smoking, silently contemplating the long trip ahead.
A random stranger approached asking for a cigarette. I handed him a Camel from my pack. As he lit the cigarette he casually asked if I was wearing a Senate sweatshirt. I replied that I was, and he responded “That’s crazy. I grew up next door to Arlo Eisenberg in Orange County.” His name was Shelby, named after the Ford Mustang, and he had just arrived here to wait for a bus transfer back to California from Virginia beach. He talked to us for a few minutes, claiming to have once dropped a young Roadhouse with one punch in the face, and seeing Arlo selling the first Senate wheels out of his backpack at the local skatepark.
Senate grew from the early days of making grindplates in their garage and selling wheels out of backpacks to at one point bringing in $10 million a year in sales. […]
