“This edit was made commemorating my section in the Senate team video: Day of the Rope.

That was made about 15 years ago. I thought it would be cool to use the same song that Arlo Eisenberg chose for me back then.

I’ve had the greatest times of my life blading, and plan to roll for as long as the body can handle.” -Alex Miranda.

Filmed and Edited by Aarin Gates with help from Demetrios George and Quinn Feldman.

Senate Corruptor: 1st time Skate

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

My main goal with the “Senate” youth-teen skate, is to get a new stream of fresh, brand new bladers (with really no exposure yet) and give them an affordable 1st option. I’ve always thought it was hard for a kid/Parent to go and spend $150+ on their 1st pair of aggressive skates, when the kid can buy a skateboard for like $90 or less.

They’re not meant to compete with with our core industry skate brands….they’re only for getting brand new kids into/exposed to our sport…and giving them an affordable choice. So now a kid can walk into a BIG 5… and be able to pick between their 1st blades or skateboard for about the same cost.

If the kids ends up liking blading, google’s senate, then finds our core industry and becomes hooked… Then we have a new fellow blader!! Next they’ll go and buy some USDs / Valos / Xsjados / Razors… That’s the goal.

(Lookback) Senate: Supporting Angry Youth

senate rollerblading

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. [...]
