In 2017, USD Skate pro rider Roman Abrate was traveling South America for 5 months to meet people and share his passion for skating. He was skating almost every day with the guys, making the most out of an amazing trip.
Between the big sessions that where organized by the locals, Roman also took time to film this little street section. Needless to say that the latest Rollergames World Champion also kills it in street.
“Not skating a lot of street usually, but when I do, it’s cause I like it and I had a lot of fun filming it! It was probably the best trip i have ever made, met amazing people and great places. I really loved the culture over there and only have had good times! Like I said at the end of the video, thanks to all the persons who helped me and who have been part of it! Especially USD, Kaltik and UC for making it possible.” - Roman Abrate.

Chynna Weierstall, first few sessions at the new Wayfinding skatepark in downtown Detroit. Many thanks to Modern Skate & Surf and Tony Hawk for making the park possible. - Al Dolega.
Wayfinding is a 4600 sq. ft. art installation and public skate park by artist Ryan McGinness and Tony Hawk, the most influential skateboarder of all time.
Wayfinding is built by George Leichtweis of Modern Skate and Surf, a huge player on the local skate scene since the 1970s who also designed the Fisher Halfpipe. The park will include six skate-able elements inspired by Detroit as well as a viewing area for spectators.
The park was originally proposed and produced by Library Street Collective with support from Cranbrook Art Museum and is presented by Bedrock and the Quicken Loans Family of Companies.
Here’s a best-of reel super 8 film shot by Nick Kouros for Delfon Dio.

I am in a fantasy football league: the Blading Football League, with a bunch of other older rollerbladers (some older than others), Jon Julio is the Commissioner. The penalty for getting last place is you have to post a skating edit. A couple of seasons ago I (allegedly) finished last. This is my attempt to settle my dues. PS: I won the league this year. My team is Los Fancy Boys. We are the reigning BFL Champs. - Arlo Eisenberg.
