“With over 1000 people in attendance on april 13, 2003, the second ever Paris Imyta was the largest street contest in the history of rollerblading. Crews from all over the world represented their love for rolling. Coming from as far as Russia, Poland, Finland, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, England, Switzerland, Germany, Portugal, the Czech Republic, the USA, and of course, France”.
“In this first edition of the 2003 Imyta Dvd series, you will witness France’s own Mathieu Heinemann dominate the field at La Defense, securing his first heavyweight title in the Imyta series. You’ll also see complete coverage, behind-the-scenes with riders, organizers and secret skate sessions”.
“This is also the first Imyta released entirely by Headcase Productions. We would like to thank everyone around the world who has continued to support the Imyta from the beginning. We couldn’t do it without you all. And watch for our next release, Imyta Los Angeles (and what will surely be an out of control event!). Respectfully”. - Jon Julio, Matt Andrews, Azikiwee Anderson, and Mike Wilson.

The third in a growing series of real street competitions held by pro skater Jon Julio. This time we find ourselves in Escondido for an out battle among the top street pros during the ASR weekend.
The coverage takes you behinds the scenes and captures exclusive industry leader interviews right alongside the competitors. Josh Petty makes history at his old stomping grounds while picking up a cool 2000 dollars. You will not find better coverage of what happened that glorious day in Esco.
