I laugh every time I see the Makio in this edit! Was NOT supposed to be in there, was meant to be a different angle for the run up. - Derek Henderson (2017).
Derek Henderson is a big, burly, man-blader. His skating is rugged, powerful, and badass. Fester wheels have to be tough, durable, and able to withstand the abuse Derek puts on them. If they are good enough for him, they must be good enough for you. - Fester Wheels (2012).
We receive quite a few of these emails, we read each and every one of them. Skaters who support Fester are the reason we do this. He didn’t ask to be “on” or didn’t expect anything in return, nothing more than sharing his skating with us.
It’s rare we decide to add someone to the Fester Wheels Family without first meeting them in person, but something about Daniel caught our attention. We made the decision to put him on, and support this skater from Israel.
Joey Chase sealed the deal after he saw this edit of Daniel and said, “let’s get him in there”. Welcome to the Fester Wheels Family Daniel! - Festerwheels.com (link down).

Interview + Photos by David Johns
I’ve had the pleasure of shooting Frank Irven skate during this edit and I have seen him push himself more and more every day. Frank’s skating rides a line between dangerous and enjoyable to watch and it’s always an edge of your seat thriller. His resilience, skill and commitment to skating has been long overdue for some recognition and I am personally excited to see him receive the exposure he deserves, which is why I wish to interview the man. – David Johns.
