Dear Rollerblading, It is time to catch up. We need this. Urgently! We need the high fives, the hugs, the laughter. We need a reunion. We want to scream our lungs out over the next insane trick and we miss the joy of landing a trick for the very first time in front of hundreds of fellow bladers.
We need to share stories and experience on stage, need to go bonkers during an epic movie night, need to party hard with old and new friends from 50+ different countries by night. We need that unique sense of community and all of us need to be in the same place at once.
It is about time for THE CATCH UP. Winterclash 2023, February 9th · 10th · 11th, Area 51 Skatepark, Eindhoven / The Netherlands. Tickets out now.
Jakob Esselmann is 10 years old, and part of the USD Team, Young Squad. He started skating at 6, and already shreds. Here are some park clips.
Welcome at 14×41 a well flavoured and tasty non-profit collaboration of Sven Boekhorst and Niels Groenendijk. These two chefs serve a 3 course video meal so the next generation of inline skaters can start cooking their stuff.
Sven started skating at the age of 14 years, and today at an age of 41 he still manages to spice things up when he drops the heat. This meal is free for everyone to enjoy and is well balanced, like his steady grinds on the streets. Whatever your preferred flavour is: He has got you covered in this one: Vert, Street and Park.
VERT EDIT: Amsterdam has a brand new halfpipe and Sven Boekhorst blessed it with his signature style tricks. Technical liptricks and amazing control in the air. The taste of it is well balanced and totally up to date. Hit play and get started.
STREET EDIT: In a search for great spots across the Netherlands Sven Boekhorst and Niels Groenendijk found some heavy hitter street spots. Niels managed to capture a full part of banging tricks and process these into main dish that exceeds all expectations.
PARK EDIT: As an all-round skater Sven makes it all taste good. This part is probably the dish where he truly shows his skills. As a master chef in control, technicality and hammers a park section of Sven Boekhorst is always finger licking good! Check him at skatepark Area 51 where all the proceeds of the donations will go to stimulate the future of street and park inline skaters.
Like the taste of it? Feel free to leave a tip and donate at the 14x41.com website. All proceeds will go to free skate lessons for the youth in Area 51 skatepark. For these lessons, we will work with a new skate instructor. Besides the donations made by you, the chefs of 14X41 will additionally donate 41 of Rollerblade® inline skates to area 51 skatepark for kids to use for free. Will you help us inspire and let the next generation get a taste of what we like? Dig in, donate and enjoy your meal!
My annual birthday edit, for you to enjoy! I turned 45 today, and gathered some of the clips I managed to get recently. Not enough streetclips, my knee won’t function on street with cold weather anymore. If you like ramp and park you’re golden. Never really thought I’d be able to still skate and have fun at 45, but here we are! Hope to skate loads more street and vert this spring and summer with the usual suspects! - Remy Cadier.
Thanks for filming @randyabels @beerhendriks @donny.dooley, @steffenhaars @tim.haars @omgitskerim. Thanks for the tunes @ediblebeatz!
