I have noticed that in blading there is a heavy imbalance between the amount of males and females. A female on blades is the exception; men seem to rule the sport in every aspect from shredding to company ownership to sheer numbers. I take this to be a supreme bum-rush. What are we doing wrong?

One time Frank Stoner and I had a conversation about this and I think he put it best. In sports like surfing, skiing, and snowboarding, there is a strong female following.

Granted they are still male dominated sports, but the ratio of male to females in those sports out weighs rollerblading. Anyways, those activities are more family oriented and I think that’s one reason the females are plentiful there and not in rollerblading. Families with little girls will go on a ski trip every winter, exposing that little girl to the snow, balancing her skis, witnessing demos, etc.

That type of exposure at a young age makes all the difference in the long run. But, the rollerblader girls get pretty spoiled for sure. […]

HEAT - Interview with Tory Treseder (2006)

Revolution (James): Looking at the HEAT team, it seems like you are all really good friends, making you guys a close knit group. Who are the team riders? How do you feel about them representing HEAT?

Heat (Tory Treseder): I think everyone in the industry knows how I feel about the guys, I hold them high in any kind of interview, or any talking I do with anyone, they are Heat in my eyes. Jeff Stockwell, James St. Ours, Erik Bailey, Micah Yeager, Sayer Danforth, and Oli Short are the best bunch of guys, and I couldn’t see myself going into the year 2007 without them on board! They are truly my best friends, and incredibly hard workers as well!

Interview: Doug Urquhart of Misled Media

Thu, Sep 7, 2006

RW : Barely Dead is one of the most anticipated videos that I have heard about in my 8 or so years of Rollerblading. Does the fact that so many kids are expecting so much out of this video put any pressure on you to produce a great product?

DOUG : It explains why the film has not yet been released, seriously! Here is some of the latest: Justin Eisinger and I have been taking our time perfecting the ultimate script. I’m working on upconverting all the archived material (ex. Hoax I & 2, Mad Beef master Beta’s) to DVCPRO HD via a TeraNex. I have to fit into open time slots at a local studio ( after hours to use the Tera so I have to be patience at times. My Sony HDV camera is in So Cal right now as Carl Sturgess, Justin E, & Wes Driver help re-shoot interviews with Brian Shima and Jon Elliott. Matt Andrews is brewing up motion graphics Perfection is key. We are not rushing anything on this project but it is coming very soon. I promise!

RW : We saw amazing skating in Black Marketincluding profiles on Julian Bah, Will Gordon, Montre Livingston, Brian Aragon, and Brent Hicks, who can we expect to see profiles of in Barely Dead?

DOUG : Barely Dead (the documentary portion) will not have any profile formats. However, throughout the film you will be acquainted with: Chris Haffey, Alex Broskow, Cameron Card, Jon Julio, Azikewee Anderson, Shane Coburn, Chris Farmer, Jeff Stockwell, Mike Opalek, Jon Elliott, Julian Bah, Walt Austin, Robert Guererro, Michael Braud, Sean Keane, Pat Lennon, Dave Kollasch, Franky Morales, J.C. Rowe, Damian Wilson, Nick Wood, Arlo Eisenberg, Jess Dyrenforth, Tom Hyser, Brian Shima, Eric Shrihjn, Doug (a 67 year old ‘first-gen’ rec blader from Minnesota), Dave Carnie (oops disregard, he rejected the interview!), & many more! Simply stated, amazing skating.
