The fourth episode of the Vault features Jeff Stockwell, Chris Cheshire, Pancho Barerra, and Sean Santamaria. The footage on this tape is from 2005 and was filmed in and on the way to Palm Springs, California during the first and only Vicious Tour. Notable clips on this tape are Jeff Stockwell rail lines at the abandoned Palm Springs Mall, Sean Santamaria’s roll, grind to transfer, Chris Cheshire backroyaling the ledge at the Palm Springs Museum of Art and Pancho Barerra gapping into the ledge at the same museum. This episode is a bit shorter because it had a lot of b-roll footage in the beginning. This footage will be available in the future in its own episode.
The third episode of The Vault features Chris Haffey, Jon Elliott, Jeff Stockwell, Derek Henderson, Nick Wood, Joey Ihara, Connor O’Brien, Brian Shima, Ryan Northway, and Jared Peterson. The footage on this tape is from 2004 and was filmed in Bakersfield and Fresno, California during a combined Remedyz and 4x4 Tour. - PLAY
Notable clips on this tape are Chris Haffey destroying the famous Poo ledge in Fresno, as well as a young Derek Henderson doing an insane switch up on another crazy Fresno ledge spot. Note: A few times I accidently refer to Derek Henderson, as Brent Henderson. Sorry Derek! - Jan Welch. Visit Thenandnowblading.com.
Welcome to the second episode of The Vault on the Then And Now Youtube channel. Each episode of The Vault features raw footage from one tape in my collection. I have nearly 400 VHS-C, Hi-8, and MiniDV tapes that I am archiving and sharing with the world. In this episode, Jon Elliott, Wes Driver, and I drove to Bakersfield, California, to visit Matt Mickey and Intuition Skateshop. This trip took place sometime in 2005 when I was filming for Sleaze, the Vicious Bearings team video.
This episode features the skating of Jeff Stockwell, Connor O’Brien, Ben Schwab, Ryan Northway, Matt Mickey, and Joey Graziano. The footage was filmed back in 2001 in San Diego, California, and Austin, Texas.

Welcome to the first episode of The Vault on the Then And Now Youtube Channel. Each episode of The Vault features raw footage from one tape from my collection. I have nearly 400 VHS-C, Hi-8, and MiniDV tapes that I am archiving on my computer and sharing with the world. - Jan Welch.

You’ve been waiting for this project now for two years, and I know you can’t believe it, but yes, it is finally done and coming out. This video has been delayed by injuries and riders having to film profiles for other videos.
We finally managed to get everyone in gear and on the same path to reach the goal of making what will be known as an Epic production. Chris Haffey, Alex Broskow, Pat Lennen and Brian Shima put their hearts and souls into filming for this project and trying to put together the sections of their careers.
Together myself and Pat Lennen sat down for 2 1/2 weeks in my living room spending hours on end working nightly till 5-6 am to get this video pumped out in time for the Christmas holidays.
We had a great time working on this project and together with the 4x4 team the video also features several riders from other Rat Tail Distribution companies such as Abdiel Colberg, Jeff Stockwell, Nick Wood, Connor O’Brien, Damien Wilson, Sean Santamaria, Henry Hubbard, Fabrice Guillion, Chris Cheshire, Pancho Barrera and many more…
This video is a tribute to our sport. To show what you can achieve when you really love something. - Jan Welch.
For the first episode of the Then and Now Podcast, I interviewed the legendary rolling artist, Chris Peel. Chris played a huge behind-the-scenes role during the late 90s to mid-2000s in the aggressive inline skating industry. Growing up in Wakefield, in the UK, he started designing t-shirt’s for Puberty Clothing before landing a job with DNA magazine. He then made his way stateside to San Diego, California, in 2000 to work for and design Daily Bread Magazine. In San Diego, he created the initial branding, image, and logos for Ground Control, Rat Tail Distribution, 4x4 Urethane, Vicious Bearings, and Nimh skates.
Chris is a long-time friend who also designed the Big Wheel Blading logo for me in 2017. We haven’t had much contact these last few years, so I thought it would be fun to contact him to catch up and reminisce on our years in San Diego, working at Daily Bread together and teaming up on many projects for Rat Tail, and its brands. - Jan Welch.
