Chris Edwards joins me on this episode of the trick library as we talk about the roots of the Aggressive inline skating trick the Soul Grind and how it was invented and who. If you are new to inline skating this is a great bit of history and if you are an OG you should find this interesting too. - Joe Stuart.

Mike McFly’s (Youtube) search for the holy grail is over. After 8 years of Ebay scouting, he finally got his hands on this Rollerblade 1988 gem by Greg Stump. He digitized it, and shared it for the pleasure of your eyes. This is blading history, don’t miss it!
Ever since the aggressive in-line skate video KFC III: Straight Jackit hit the scene (winter 2003), I’ve been searching for this video. This is the original promotional video produced by Greg Stump productions for Rollerblade. this video was lampooned for a skate shop promo on that 2003 DVD. I now present the video in its original un-edited, full color glory!
this video features team Rollerblade skates like Bruce “AJ” Jackson, Jill Schulz, Pat Parnell and many others. the stunts they pull off are literally insane (10+ foot airs on the original Rollerblade Blade runner skate with a lace up cuff)…. also keep in mind that even the most experienced bladers had only been doing it for 2-4 years. - Mike McFly.

8th Wonder was my first section in a real video. I still remember what it was like staying at Justin’s house on the weekends and cruising all around the bay area to simply skate and get tricks on tape. No sponsors, no obligations and no agenda other than having fun.
Being 15 years old, all I wanted to do was skate and all Justin wanted to do was film me (and others) skating. Back in those days it was all about the group session and that’s how a lot of the stuff was filmed. You could always count on some of your friends skating the spots with you, and getting you juiced to land tricks.
I was always pushing myself the most when skating with the older, and better dudes like Erick Garcia, Rob G, Vinny Minton, Jared Magers, Pat Lennen and more. Each time I watch this video, all I can think about is those non stop care free sessions with friends. It’s a nice reminder of the main reason I fell in love with blading and still do it after all these years. - Brandon Smith.
