On Saturday Aug 27th veteran Rollerblader Marco De Santi opened up his home & his amazing vert ramp to Inline Skaters from all over the World to compete in the first ever USA Halfpipe League Competition!
Currently performing in The Beatles “LOVE” by Cirque Du Soleil we’re all grateful that Marco had both the time & the passion to host this competition.
With the help of sponsors and fellow Pro Nel Martin this was the first time an event of this kind has presented itself in the United States in well over a decade! It was an incredible experience and everyone really came together to make this a huge success.
This is a showcase of the talent that traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to compete. “B-roll” coming soon!
Thank You to Gadgik, Paul Mitchell, KeeperEnergyDrink, RazorSkates, and Reverse for their support!

Eito Yasutoko going to practice the Double Backflip today. This is most scary trick for him because he got biggest injury in his history on his neck in 10 years ago.
For years, Eito Yasutoko has been revered as one of the most progressive vert skaters of all time, but he has now entered a league of his own. Eito started quad skating before the age of three and changed to inline when he was nine.
Eito creates unbeatable runs, bringing not only explosive height and brilliant style, but also the most progressive and intimidating line ever seen. His signature tricks include the 1080 California Roll, a double back flip and a twister. Eito’s strength is his consistency.
