Just like VHS, DVDs are coming to an end which I think is a sad truth but it is a truth all the same. The amount of online content you get to see in skating is astronomical but there is very little that lives on that you watch over and over like you did when Brain Fear Gone came out.
In my opinion when looking at skating in general, the danger level and difficulty level has declined majorly. I still like a lot of peoples skating but just speaking in general.
But if you look at the best bladers in the world they don’t fall into that general population. Iain Mcleod and myself discussed making a section that we would put out that people would always remember, and truly respect which is a bit harder to do now because of the fast speed of content via the internet.
1 year ago we put together a list of tricks and spots that we both thought was close to impossible. I put the word “close” there because it gives skaters like Iain enough wiggle room to make it happen. I explained to Iain that if we were going to do this together that I would have to be able to shoot it the way I wanted without any interference. He agreed.

The most important part in skating is having fun and skating the way you want.
I have spent 2 and a half years working on this on and off. I thought it was going to be my last standard definition video but because of serious injuries I had to mix it up a bit. I wanted to release it before the new year and start fresh for 2012.
The last 2 and a half years have been quite a ride. I didn’t start Chosen Few to make money. I started it because I wanted to contribute to the sport I love. I wanted to put on events and competitions that bring skaters everywhere together and allow new skaters to have a chance at being recognized.
I started it because I wanted my friends and I to have something to represent how we like to skate. I started it to acknowledge and give opportunities to the laundry list of talented bladers that exist in the world. I started Chosen Few to help skating reach out to the mainstream and get rollerblading the money it deserves.
I started ACHOSEN-FEW.COM to promote and expose the sport I have dedicated my life to. I do truly love it. If I were the only blader on the planet I could still go out everyday and hit a rail with a smile on my face. – Quinn Feldman.
I have been hurt for the past year and a half. I started this section about 2 years ago but I dislocated my shoulder 6 months into filming. I was out 6 months rehabbing and then my first week back I dislocated it again.
It took doctors at the UCLA ER 3 hours to put my shoulder back in. I dislocated it again while traveling in Europe while waiting for some other stuff to kick in so I could get a bone graph surgery. I managed to sneak in a few sessions here and there and skate the all day for the 7 days before my major surgery.
I figured if they were going to fix it in a week anyway I might as well do some crazy shit before I’m out for another 5 months. I finally get to start skating worry free again in December. I did a lot of great things while I was hurt.
I got to organize events, expose new skaters and enjoy doing other stuff for the sport I love. I’m happy to be back and here is a teaser for my ACF profile. -Quinn
