We are honored to have him be a part of the Revolution team. Bolino has an amazing style, he doesn’t care to make it look too “perfect.” He wants to keep it raw, that is why he makes rollerblading look so badass. – Revolution Skate Shop.
Music: Dead moon – graveyard. Thanks Shane Schommer.
Style is more than just making your tricks look good, the way Keaton Newsom carries himself defines his style. Your appearance, music, spot selection, tricks and the way you do them all factor into what makes up your style.
What sets Keaton above the rest is his attitude. Where bad attitudes plague our industry with negativity, Keaton is setting a higher standard. You’re drawn even more to Keaton because of his positive demeanor. It completes him as an up and coming skater in our industry. Keaton is an inspiration for the next generation of skaters. -Revolution.
How could I put into words who James Johnson is to me? James is someone that I feel blessed to share experiences on this planet with. A human being that inspires me to better myself. A dude, that I would fly out to Arizona to hang out with, even if I can’t skate cause I have a busted shin. Yes, he owns a skate shop.
Yes, he has been the back bone of one of the healthiest skate scenes in America. Yes, he has had hundreds of people staying in his home so they could come skate in AZ, but for me James is way more than the sum of what he did or did not. For me, James Johnson is a friend, a brother (even if I am not close to being Native). As for his skating, I will let the 90 seconds speak for itself.
“Everything he does is gold.” Jon and I use this saying to describe certain skaters. Meaning they can’t do no wrong, every trick they do is amazing, every clip they get is priceless.
Mike Lilly is one of those skaters. His 90 was filmed in a week because of this exact reason. Blading needs skaters like Lilly, full of personality and style that is unmatched. One statement changed everything for him – “I’m not done yet.”
Brian Bina has a style all of his own that is amazing to watch. Bina is a really powerful skater, everything he does is on point.
I’ve rarely seen a skater like Bina, someone who has their style fine tuned at such a young age. He gets it.
Blading needs a future, we need to present ourselves, and present blading in the best possible way. Seeing a skater like Brian Bina come up, it gives me hope that our sport is going in the right direction.
Casey is one of our favorite skaters, it’s easy for him to be. What sets him apart are the spots he chooses to skate. He’ll skate the spot you wish you had found, or did the line you wish you thought of. That is what makes Casey special.
He is one step ahead of the rest, and he is going in his own direction. Casey is pushing rollerblading in the direction it needs to go. – Revolution.
“I like skating spots you have to think about and use your imagination.” – Casey McFarland.
Matty Schrock takes pride in his skating. Matty lives and breathes rollerblading. Matty is who he is, he has never cared about what the latest trend is. He was brought up in the Bama crew, where your skating was done proper. His only care is to push himself, and carry the torch passed to him by his roots.
Jon and I wanted to show Matty’s skating the way we envision it. He is raw, and he can skate anything put in front of him. Matty is pure rollerblader.
