We couldn’t be happier to welcome Chris Farmer to the 50/50 team. Chris is one of the best rail skaters of all time, and has some of the most legendary video sections.
On a personal note, Chris was one of the few people we asked for advice about bringing 50/50 back in 2017. I always felt his time with 50/50 back in the days was cut short, but never questioned his decision to join Xsjado. It’s a great feeling to start the next chapter of 50/50 together.

Over the past 6 weeks I’ve been Skating the New Fifty 50 Prime Frames, here’s a small review and some clips I’ve gotten in them. One thing I forgot to mention was how I’ve been keeping more speed just rolling around, this is from the responsiveness of the metal core. Also bare with me as I’ve been working out how to use my 360 one x2 :) - Becci Sotelo.
Rollerblading’s Angelina, Fabiola Da Silva is doing vert shows (and getting this high). All this summer at Six Flags Magic Mountain. She is a part of Matt Hoffman’s “Danger Defying Daredevils” stunt show. I would say something about the name but apparently, they ride 2 motorcycles at a time in that Mad Max lookin’ sphere-cage.
