Gonzo Jaquez - Then and Now, Blading Podcast with Jan Welch (2022)

For this episode 22 the Then and Now Blading Podcast I interview legendary Los Angeles Skater Gonzalo Gonzo Jaquez. Gonzo was one of my favorite skaters in the early to mid-2000s and I was lucky enough to be able to film with him for my video United Front 2 - Trash. Known for his style, he was easily one of the greatest tech skaters of his era. - Jan Welch.

Face to Face with Robert Guerrero, a Rollerblading Legend (2022)

Face to Face with Robert Guerrero, a Rollerblading Legend (2022)

Welcome to episode 1 of Face to Face with Robert Guerrero, where we sit down together and discuss his past, present, and future in rollerblading. Robert is currently in Drummondville, Quebec, a two-hour drive from me here in Vermont, where I recently visited him to skate and create content for this channel. We sat down to reminisce on our past, discuss what he’s been up to, and find out his future. We cover how we first met and dig into his early years of skating in Austin, Texas, and San Jose, California, with people like Jason Howard, Jon Julio, Jayson Reduta, and Erick Garcia.

We talk about how his first crew kicked him out and how this made him focus on becoming the best skater in San Jose. Then we go over some highlights from the two sections we filmed together in Urban Decay and DBV5 No One’s Children. We get into the misguided practice of forcing your feet in skates too small for you. Robert then reveals why he is in Quebec, where he was before, and his plans to go to Europe and stay with Ricardo Lino, Mirek from Hedonskate, and then instruct at Blading Camp in Spain. To finish the episode, we watch and react to footage I filmed of him in the mid-90s and his sections in Urban Decay and DBV5 No One’s Children.

Catching Up With Robert Guerrero at LaPalme D'Or II In Sherbrooke, Quebec (2022)

Catching Up With Robert Guerrero at LaPalme D'Or II In Sherbrooke, Quebec (2022)

This past Saturday, I made my way across the border to catch up with Robert Guerrero at the “Lapalme d’Or II” event in Sherbrooke, Quebec. “Lapalme d’Or II” is a three-day and two-night camping and skating event that Alex Lapalme and Boutique Inline Skateshop host. Robert Guerrero is currently staying north of Sherbrooke in Drummondville. We are both only about an hour from the event, so we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to re-connect again after not seeing each other for almost two decades. Rob and I had a wonderful time hanging out, and I plan to drive up to Drummondville soon to film some more content with Rob and discuss the time we spent hanging out and filming together from the mid-90s to the early 2000s. - Jan Welch.

This video features the skating of Robert Guerrero, Lauric Picard, Maxence L. Valade, Maxime Kind, Maxime Lanthier, David Carrizosa Pereira, Gregory Hernandez, Marc-Etienne Paradis, Mathieu Lapointe, Mehdi Buscaino, Simon Gemme, and Pier-luc Bernier.

The fourth episode of the Vault features Jeff Stockwell, Chris Cheshire, Pancho Barerra, and Sean Santamaria. The footage on this tape is from 2005 and was filmed in and on the way to Palm Springs, California during the first and only Vicious Tour. Notable clips on this tape are Jeff Stockwell rail lines at the abandoned Palm Springs Mall, Sean Santamaria’s roll, grind to transfer, Chris Cheshire backroyaling the ledge at the Palm Springs Museum of Art and Pancho Barerra gapping into the ledge at the same museum. This episode is a bit shorter because it had a lot of b-roll footage in the beginning. This footage will be available in the future in its own episode.

Then and Now - Interview With Chad Hornish (2021) by Jan Welch

Sat, Oct 2, 2021

For the third episode of the Then and Now Interview Series, I chat with Chad Hornish. I first met Chad back in 1997, when we drove to Phoenix, Arizona to introduce the Nimh team at Revolutions Skateshop’s Thursday night skate. I filmed an edit of that trip that featured the Nimh Team and Phoenix locals, including Dustin Latimer and Chad. Shortly after he was added to the Team and we invited him on our California Tour with Montre Livingston, Brian Shima, Jon Elliott, Joey Chase, Adam, and Keith Brierley, and Casey MacFarland.
