Visiting the world oldest still running skatepark: KONA! Was lucky enough to spend Christmas and new year’s with my family in Florida. I could finally try to strap my skates back on and go for the first session after my surgery which was 9 weeks ago. I used this chance of being near by and visit this historical place. Still long way to go to be fully back in full power but I’m so happy to feel skates under my feet. Hope you enjoy! - Nils Jansons.
Visit Konaskatepark.com Kona will celebrate his 45th birthday in 2022, and has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest surviving skatepark.

This year was no exception and once again I had chance to be part of Blading Camp and coach the campers from all over the globe. Thank you Josh Glowicki, Uani and everyone else who I met for the amazing week. Now it’s been over 2 months off skates because of the injury and even though I’m trying find positive things in this situation and keep it optimistic I miss skating more than anything. - Nils Jansons.
I’m no longer a student, I’m 40 and I actually enjoy work. At the moment we are in our 6th lockdown in Melbourne and I have to say that it is starting to get tough. I have my morning routine of exercise and caffeine but the one thing that keeps me motivated, the one thing that has kept me positive is this, welcome to my world: Inline Skating. - Joe Stuart.
