Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! We at Roll Minnesota thought this would be a great opportunity to serve up some “Thanksgiving Leftovers” and reflect on some of the amazing memories we’ve shared over the years.
These clips, mostly compiled in the summers of 2012-2014, highlight the culture of comradery we share in Minnesota. Although most of these clips were leftovers, it’s great to finally share them with an audience!
Skaters include Dave Walsh, Chase Linzmeyer, Chemi Simiyu, Butch Lehman, Mike Wilson, Jay Davis, Mike Lufholm, Wilson Robinson, Marshall Hart, Shane McClay, and more. Thank you everyone for being a part of the Roll Minnesota family and a special thank you to all those that participated in the making of this video!
In this episode, we join Chase Linzmeyer for a old-fashioned practice rail session. The skating lasted well into the evening, but fortunately Chase was prepared with floodlights and pizza. Once again, Chase and Dave prove why they are switch-up masters. Special thanks to Chase and Laura for hosting us! - Roll Minnesota.
The day continues with food, followed by some street skating. Lots of tricks were landed, but Chase Linzmeyer was the true star of the show and proves once again why he is one of the best (if not the best) rail skaters in the midwest.
Afterwards, we drove another hour south to Austin, MN to check out a legendary skatepark rumored to have round coping on everything… but did it? Part 1: PLAY.
Roll Minnesota Vlog: 12+ Episodes on Youtube.
In this episode, North Dakota native Falcon Gott visits the Roll Minnesota crew for a session at Chaska Skatepark.
We also welcome back Luis Pineda, who is returning to the rollerblading scene after almost 10 years away from blading. Despite some occasional rain and some occasional pain, we were all able to get some tricks and enjoy some outdoor, fall skating before winter arrives. Special thanks to Emilio Estevez for encouraging our flying. PLAY.
In this episode, local legend Joel Johnson joins us as we travel south to Belle Plaine, Minnesota. The skatepark was anything but normal, looking like something straight out of a circus.
Despite the strange appearance and setup, we had a blast skating this park (lots of line options!). Afterwards, we stopped by “Minnesota’s Largest Candy Story”… will Nelson eat the chocolate covered scorpion? Watch to the end and see for yourself! PLAY.
Celebrating my 29th birthday with a full day of blading. Our journey takes us to six different Minnesota skateparks in an attempt to capture 29 tricks. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday! Special thanks to Nelson for filming! - Butch Lehman.
