I initially began this edit for Unlabelled to show all the best clips I shot during my “carrer” of videomaker in the aggressive inline skating but I just felt like I could do something cool to thank all the people who inspired me. It doesn’t mean that everyone is in the video, far from it.
So please have the pleasure to watch a part of those who are part of my lifetime on this Earth. I truly believe that the best is yet to come, I could have called that edit the 2.09€ video but “Snippets of a Blading Life” seems more cinematic #bladeordie. - Gaets Krop.

Round 2! This time, we’re discussing switch ups. What they are, how to do them and what makes them “count”.
If this is the first time you’re seeing this, the goal of Tutorial Plus is to document, in great detail, why it is we do things the way that we do them. There are plenty of “how to jump up and slide down” how-to videos in skating, but there aren’t many that explain them in detail. That’s the goal. To create a universal understanding for the basic concepts of what our community values as a whole. Word.
But anyways.. I never realize how truly difficult rollerblading is to understand until I start trying to explain the rules we’ve created for ourselves. Having two separate devices strapped to our feet, with 3 different plates (don’t even get me started about channel grinds), and the amount of variations that can be done is daunting. Especially, if you’re trying to explain what “counts” and what doesn’t to someone that is brand new to the sport…. Sheesh. I don’t think I did too good of a job, but it’s at least a crash course into what & why we do things the way that we do.
Mosquitos in TX are gnarly, btw. A lot of swatting going on in this. I also need to quit being lazy and setting my camera to full auto when I do these things, but in the middle of the session, in 90 degree weather… Your boy really isn’t trying to get too technical, haha.
I know I missed some things when discussing this. I do all of this off the top of my head. I really should start writing notes before I do this… Anyways, if you watched it, I hope you at least gained something from it. - Cody Sanders.

The new Pills Wheels 2021 collection is online now! This year we’ve decided to release 10 models to suit all tastes and colours. It’s all the same classic white 90A polyurethane that’s proven to be great in street and park.
We’ve added a 58mm diameter. The profile of these wheels combines a rounded and flat silhouettes. So you can choose now from 57, 58, 59 and 64 mm. There’s only 1 promodel in this collection. And it is Vanya Chanchikov‘s signature wheels – V CHANCH 64mm. We believe that he has proved with his skating that he can be the best. We want his wheels to secure his status of a young and talented rider.
Also part of this release is the new PILLS X COMMUNITY collab. This is a very special model in which we paid attention to details.
