Then again they were the best then and not the avergage skater, if you look at the best 16 year old today, you can see how the sports progressed. Lovin the spins, the grinds are funny, although its funny to note this video was pretty much the first step in swiitch ups. but the gaps and spins are outrageous for the skates they have, and the stage of which skating was at when this was made.
ha ha, rollernews goes history! Think this is good, everyone who is rolling today should know the history of our sport. Everyone should know who Arlo Eisenberg, Chris Edwards, Tom Fry, Dave Kolash… is and what they have done for the progressing of rolling. But I think too, that all the crazy skaters today are doing the same at a new and ever progressing level. When skaters in the future look back to our pros today they will say the same as the younger skaters do today to a old clip like that.
Ha ha i know wat u mean man , those were the days!!! But we all grow up and assume a different role in the game , good to see how far rolling has come , i feel priveledged to have seen all the growth… i go back to Dare To Air days and im still rolling!!!
I remember watching this section over and over again 8 years ago, it was probably the times when i started to look up to DL..Whoever digged this up, thanks a lot!! :) 16 year old kids inventing a new progressive style of rollerblading, followed by thousands all over the world..now that’s what i call “something worth remembering”.
totally sick. Dustin and Kevin ripped and probably still do! ahhhh the good ole days! Of course, rolling has progressed and the skill level of the ams and pros is MUCH higher today, but back in the day, we started with no grinds at all, just jumping gaps and riding stairs (see Dare To Air!!!) and gapping into stairs and shit. Then came the frontside, backside, soul grind, & miszou grind and THAT’S ALL. It was up to us to try pushing those grinds to different levels of difficulty and variations, from scratch. Props to all who are reading this and have been rolling since 1993. Props to new generation of rollers who keep us old guys amazed at the shit you pull these days.
I hear ya oldman, you ask alot of young skaters these days who arlo is or chris edwards, and my man D.K, they all had there on style or way of skating, were today you get, you skate like such and such, or you do that like such and such, i started around 1991 with a few of us on the verts that could ride it.
