Quoting Beau Cottington:
Salomon Team video I did in 2003 I think (?) It was used in a media kit separated into sections and never released in entirety. I produced the whole soundtrack myself which was a first for me.
Features Brandon Campbell, Rob Thompson, Billy Prislin, Brian Hamm, Chance Dustan, Jimmy Shuda, and others. This video is not the finished version, my master tapes are lost and this is from a tape Billy Prislin had stored away.
In this version Vinny Minton had not turned in his footage yet, but he has a section in the finished video. Also I had only done color correction on a few select clips, so this is like a 3/4 draft version.
Hopefully I will find the original master tape with the complete video soon. Big thanks to Billy Prislin for digging up the tape out of his archive for me. Thumbnail shot is B.Cam with an impossible 360 over a tall fence in Santa Barbara, CA.

Fill us in on what you have been up to since you declared your retirement from professional rollerblading in Daily Bread some years ago?
So, roughly, I was in a band, I went to college, and now I’m in graduate school getting a PhD in Philosophy. That’s the short story. The longer version: I think I was already taking classes at the Santa Rosa Junior College when I did that Daily Bread interview. When I decided to stop skating professionally I was already pretty excited about studying philosophy in college.
I dropped out of high school to be able to travel as much as I needed to, but I was a decent student and I actually really liked studying itself. So when I was traveling a lot I read tons of books. I eventually became very interested in philosophy and decided that I would go to college to study it.
I had become somewhat bored with the life of professional rollerblading (not with rollerblading itself), and I was getting to a point where I needed to find something else to do with my life. I thought seriously about starting a company under Peld, since it was practically already a brand, but I realized that I wasn’t a business person.
Nick Riggle – FOCUSED – 2000 Salomon Team Video
Nick Riggle played an integral role in pioneering toe-rolls & heel-rolls, and pushing an unconventional style of skating, which he and fellow pioneers referred to as “mushroom blading.”
Today, mushroom blading exists in skaters like Charles Dunkle, Rory Melehan, Micah Yeager, the SOL dudes from Canada, Dustin Latimer and any skater that doesn’t limit his skating to traditional ledge or rail grinds.
Featuring Aaron Feinberg, Matt Andrews, Jake Elliott, Chiaki Ito, Nick Riggle, Wilfred Rossingnol, Shayne Skower, Vinny Minton, Jochen Smuda, and Nicky Adams.
Xsjalomons, Xsjado / Salomon Concept,
using a Salomon Vinny Minton 2 Boot.
Me and my mate were bored as poo one day when it was raining so we decided to make these…
Basically they are salomon skates with the top of the boot cut off, the cuff v cut and cut into the xsjado cuff shape, a tongue put on the buckle, a like velcro/metal thingy off sum crappy sk8s trapped underneath the frame for the instep thingy and sum random elastic for the toe strap.
this started off as just a joke, but now im sk8in em instead of my TRS alphas bcos theyre so good.
More details and photos in this topic. Thanks Hobo !
Street is above all a question of style when it comes to your tricks and your skates. Our pro-rider, Vinny Minton has worked closely with us to develop skates that reflect their personality, allowing skaters to express their own style too during sessions.

Although the widebody provides amazing soul space, ideal for stable switch-ups and cess slides, every single roller notices weak ability to press your foot to the right position for royale and torque tricks. That’s why I came up with this customization.
