Nicolas Servy launched a new serie on his Youtube Channel called Vous Etes Servy (you’re served, french wordplay with his family name) and it’s probably the best interview format rollerblading has ever seen. Stephane Alfano is the first guest. If you don’t speak french, you might want to turn on the auto generated subs (spoiler alert: it’s bad, shame on you Google) or tune at the end of the video to enjoy the custom homemade game of B.L.A.D.E.

Stephane Alfano is a former Inline Skating World Champion who also got known in the skating world for having a couple of incidents. During this interview we have discussed his reasons for some of his actions. We have also discussed his skating roots, what he is doing right now, skating and non skating wise and his plans for the future. - Ricardo Lino.
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.

A lot of blading (aggressive inline skating, patins street, roller street, patinaje aggressivo) basically.
Join me as I sit down with an incredible individual who I have a tremendous amount of respect for (PLAY). Billy O’Neill is not only a legendary pro skater and industry leader, but he’s also the owner of Mesmer Skate Company and co-host of the Jump Street Podcast. In this interview, we cover a wide range of topics that we both felt passionate about. From our shared love of skating and the impact it’s had on our lives, to discussing our personal experiences with marriage, religion, psychology, and motivation. It was a genuine pleasure to have such an authentic and thought-provoking conversation with someone who I admire so much. I’m excited for you to hear it too. - Brazilionaire.
