Carriers Open - November 11, 2023. Frisco, Texas.
Wow. Where do I start? Fritz Peitzner, Carriers, the city of Frisco did such a great job putting on this event. The turn out was really massive. The park is really spread out, but even with that in mind you can tell the numbers were huge. I want to write in depth about the event, give you every detail, etc… But I’m going to leave that to whoever is handling the legit edit. This is the non-legit edit. This is the Jumbo experience… So here’s how it went from our perspective.
I’ve never ran a booth before… Hell, I didn’t even know this was going to be a company when I started it. It’s a joke that’s gotten really, really out of hand. I love it. I didn’t think about this beforehand, but running a booth, a side event, trying to skate a little AND film an edit of the experience is… A lot. Almost too much, but I still managed. Thank god for the crew helping me hold it down.
Bcam basically covered the booth and sales the whole time, Gogo and Aaron helping me film. Heath, Ant and Caleb helping me facilitate our mystery event… Oh my god, I can’t believe they let us do the mystery event, hahaha. Jumbo World Tournament. It was so stupid. No one had a clue, not even the people running the contest. I’m not sure how people actually felt about it. I can’t really remember much of it, because I was so focused on announcing. I edited the footage, but I do it all so quickly I haven’t taken the time to really grasp the crowd reaction yet… But if you ask me? I laugh every time. I laugh just thinking about it. That’s really all I want to do, just have a good time.
If we’re ever allowed to do another mystery event, it might be more focused towards skating… But I love the slapstick, pie-in-the-face, loony toons nature of it all. Without ranting for too long (because I’m sure maybe only 10 people read these descriptions anyway), I think everything about the event was a success. I love my friends. I love the rollerblading scene. I especially love EVERYONE that came by the booth and said what up. For real, I say it every time and I mean it… I’m shocked that people care. I care so much about skating and about us as a community, it’s just really great to know that there are people out there that I can resonate with. Thank you to everyone that came out, that shows love, that watches this… This is the best. Jumbo forever. - Cody Sanders.

Oakland, California - September 30th, 2023. While spending some time in San Francisco to finish up filming with Cameron Talbott, we found ourselves lucky with the timing as the Bay Area Skate Series (B.A.S.S.) took place during our stay on the west coast. With reports of light rain, we made it over the bay bridge into Oakland for the day to catch up with everyone while the sky barely kept it together long enough for the duration of the competition where the winner takes all.
There was a rumor floating around that this would be the last one but we all know how that goes and after the turnout and results—there certainly will be another one. Great times, great tricks, and most of all, great people. Cheers! - butterTV.

I don’t want to pick favorites but…. I think the Franky Morales Invitational is my favorite competition in the states. It’s close… It could be tied with The Blading Cup, but I also love Miami as a city. I come to Miami just to kick it.. The fact that one of the largest blade competitions in the nation is here as well is a huge plus. Heads up… I didn’t intend to make an edit of the competition. I’ll leave that to the real filmers, I just wanted to film the homies and make a fun one.
I stayed out til 5am the night before the event (bars are open that late here, it’s incredible) so I missed basically the entire beginning of the event. The park, the venue, is so incredible. Fantastic food trucks, a skateshop, they even brew their own beer for the skatepark. I want to do a long write up for this one… Honestly, for such a great event, it deserves a long write up. But I’ve once again stayed up way too late editing this and I don’t have the energy. Thank you to EVERYONE that supports Jumbo. I love you all. Always feel free to say “what up.” It was super cool meeting everyone. If you missed this years FMI, I’ll see you at the next one. - Cody Sanders.
